FCCB Home Decor #183

Good morning fellow crafters!!  I hope you've had a great weekend!!  I spent mine at SimpLee Memories Hobby Retreat House with Ginger from My Sister's Scrapper!!!  It was amazing!!  She taught an amazing Christmas mini album there!!  Make sure you check out the retreat house...it was heaven out there!! 

So today's challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge was to create a Home D├ęcor project.  So this is what I came up with!!  I used the Tags Bags Boxes & More, and Mother's Day Bouquet cartridges.  Wrapped some spooky spider web around the bottles, added some spiders, and of course glitter and VOILA!!  A fun spooky Halloween Bottle!!

Halloween Frame Card

Well...Halloween is just around the corner!!  The kids are getting all pumped up to dress up a(me included) and go trick or treating, the haunted house and all the other fun things!!!  Still haven't decided on costumes but I swear, we always wait until the last possible minute and get creative!!

So, for todays card I created for two challenges:

My Craft Spot - #115 3D Halloween
Paper Playtime - #21 Ribbons & Buttons

I found this super cute tutorial on how to make the frame part of the card and knew that would be the perfect base!!  I love it and admit I've already made several different designs!!  Thinking this might be my Christmas card base as well...we shall see!!  Okay, getting side tracked!!  You can find the tutorial (((HERE))) by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts!!  LOVE her tutorials!!  I swear I watched every single on the other day!!  haha



And of course my favorite thing about this card (besides the shadow box) is the spooky spiders web I draped around it!!  Hope you enjoy!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Breast Cancer Awareness!!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month!!  Make sure you do your self exams and make your appointment for a mammogram!!  I've had a couple friends who I'm happy to say are breast cancer survivors...unfortunately not everyone is so lucky.  So please make sure you have your exams done!!

This card was created for the challenge over at CardzTV...#37 Breast Cancer Awareness.  If you haven't checked out Mary's blog you need to head on over!!  She is absolutely amazing and the stamps (CHECK THEM HERE) she designs are as well!!  You will find a ton of inspiration on her blog, I always do!  !



I created the boot using the witches boot image on the Happy Hauntings Cartridge (you can see my Halloween card here).  I just snipped the curly toe part off so make a Victorian boot.  Same with my Halloween card, I ran the pink and white cardstock in my Cuttlebug to give it some dimension.  A little faux stitching around the ovals edges and voila! a great card to send to a girlfriend!!

Silhouette Halloween Card

So today's card I created for the challenge over at An Inky Situation - Linky Party #12 Dress Up!
The only Cricut cartridge I had that was "dress-up" was Paper Dolls and after cutting a couple images out I just wasn't feeling it.  So I started looking through each and every cartridge I had until something sparked my fancy!!  The witches hat on the Happy Hauntings cartridge did just that!!  Then I remembered Forever Young has some super cute silhouette cuts of a girl....PERFECT!!!

So this is what I came up with.  The base of my card is actually a polka dot transparency.  I used a range of different paper lines including: My Mind's Eye, K&Co., BoBunny, and Paper Studio.  The ribbons and metal charm I found in my stash.  And the stamps I used are from Pink Paislee.  As you can tell, I have each layer raised up on foam tape!!  I absolutely LOVE dimension!!

Witches Boot Halloween Card

Hello everyone!!  I've got a super fun card to share with you today!!  I finally got my Cricut hooked up to The Cricut Craftroom!!  Seriously...why didn't I do this forever ago?  I don't have a gypsy so this was super exciting for me!!  So I have been playing around with it all last night, throughout the morning and afternoon!!

So, this card I used the adorable witches boot from the Happy Hauntings cartridge!! 
I ran the purple and black cardstock through my Cuttlebug to give it some more dimension.  I absolutely love how it turned out!!  The stamped images are from Pink Paislee.  I created this card for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Happy Haunting! #235
and
Simon Says Stamp - Use a rubber or clear stamp

Happy World Card Making Day!!

Happy World Card Making Day everyone!!  I was able to squeeze in some much needed scrappy time while my little one was napping!!  So here's what I created:
 
All the flowers (except the metal ones) were made by me!!  ;)  I absolutely LOVE making them!!  They are so fun and very easy!!

This card I created for my nephew who just graduated TODAY from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office Explorer Academy!!
 
And here's the inside...because of course...HE ROCKS!!!  I am so proud of him!!
 
 
And last but not least...MY FAVORITE!!!  I mean, hello...LOOK at that huge flower!!  Love it!!  So, no this card is probably not able to be mailed, but it would look really cute sitting inside a gift bag to someone special!! 

So...what all did you create today?!!  I would love for you to share!!
