Hello My Pretty Friend

Hi everyone!  I made a cute Halloween card this weekend.  Really, I should have gotten more done, but spent all day Saturday running errands.  I really need a good crafting weekend soon :)

I got this cute Happy Pumpkin from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I was about to put it in my cart when I decided to click on the Friday Freebie section and it was there!  I also picked up a cute light bulb that I hope to make a card with this week.


The pumpkin has some teeth too, which I did cut out, but I decided I liked her better without them.  My Cricut Explore machine cut out her eyelashes perfectly! I also added some faux stitching to the hat before gluing it all together.


My Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine was a perfect addition for this card.  You should check out all the fun Halloween Twines over at Annie's Paper Boutique and get what you need for the holiday.

I finished off the card with some Doodlebug sequins in orange and purple and some Frosted Lace Stickles.

Have a fabulous day!

Halloween Hat Bag

Hi everyone!  We had a Trendy Twine Halloweenie Facebook Hop last weekend and this was my project.  I used the Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine along with these fun cone bags which are in the store.


The hat came from the Cricut Mini Monsters Cartridge and the tag is a My Creative Time die.  I used stickles on the stars and circles on the hat and finished it off with the Trendy Twine glued to the brim.


I'm in the mood for more Halloween projects and hope to be creative today.  :)

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Annie's Paper Boutique to get all your goodies in time for Halloween treats!

Acorn Hello

Hi everyone!  It's been a super busy August at my house.  My kids went back to school on the 4th and all their activities started pretty much right away.  And I work at a University and classes there started back this past Monday.  I think I worked about 48 hours over this past week and I am very glad it's over.

I am so glad I made time to make a card for the SVG Cutting Files monthly challenge though.  They have a Groot and Rocket (from Guardians of the Galaxy) file for entering and I needed them--LOL!  The challenge is to make anything with fall colors and be sure to use their files as the main focus.



Here's my Acorn Hello card--I am very happy with how it turned out!


Supplies used:

  • SVG Cutting Files Nutty Acorn
  • SVG Cutting Files Circle Trio Card Set--Large Scallop Card and layer
  • Totally Kraft Trendy Twine
  • DCWV Harvest Gathering Stack
  • My Creative Time Floral Sentiments stamp
  • Doodlebug Sequins
  • Frosted Lace Stickles
  • Pop Dots
I used a tiny bit of stickles for the cheeks and then pop dotted the acorn on the card.  Now that I have the Cricut Explore, I love cutting SVG's!

Have a fabulous weekend!
