Fantabulous Halloween

Hi everyone! This week's challenge for Fantabulous Cricut is Halloween. Which is one of my favorite holidays! So, I have a quick and cute Halloween card for you today. I made this card in about 20 minutes. Including designing it on my Gypsy and searching for a "Happy Halloween" cut in my cartridges. So when I say it's quick, I mean it. :) Lookie:

Cute, cute right? I acquired Pumpkin Carving a couple of weeks ago at the scrapbook convention and have been itching to get my Cricut and Gypsy fired up! I can see lots of cute Halloween decorations in my future with this cartridge. I think I'm in love. Lol. Anywhoo, here are a few details for those whom are interested. I first chose the witch cut and sized it to 4.65. I then added 3 circles, sized one to be the background layer and then welded the other two to make a circle card. After that it was a snap to turn this in to an easel card. See what I mean? Easy peasy lemon squeezey. Thanks for stopping by!


Cartridge: Pumpkin Carving, Designer's Calendar, George

Joy Wall Hanging

Hi everyone! Just got back from my FAB weekend at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Kansas City and boy am I inspired! I took lots of classes and met new and old friends. What more can a girl ask for?

For this weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday, our assignment was to create something that goes on the wall. Since I was so inspired from the convention, I went through my stash and found this wall plaque that I've had for at least a year. Covered it with cardstock, stamped some snowflakes and then glittered it to within an inch of it's life! What do you think? Lookie:

Pretty no? I really enjoyed making the faux icicles out of glue and loose glitter. That was fun! The font from Storybook really worked well and the felt snowflakes pull it all together. Now for Halloween and Thanksgiving to pass so I can hang up my sweet project!
