Holly Jolly Card!

I'm having so much fun working on projects using the AMAZING stamp sets from My Pink Stamper! For the October design team assignment, we were to create a Christmas card using the stamp set Winter Treats & Sayings. There are so cute sentiments in this set...it was hard to choose which one to use!

For my card, I used the Jolly Holidays cricut cartridge. The house is cut at 3.75". I love the whimsical design of this house...with Santa's feet sticking out of the chimney!

Materials Used:

Cricut Cartridge - Jolly Holidays
Cardstock - Bazzill (Green, White, Black, Red and Gray), DCWV (White Glitter)
Scallop Tag - Creative Memories Scallop Punch and Circle Punch
Sentiment Stamp - Winter Treats & Sayings from My Pink Stamper
Bakers Twine
White Gel Pen

Halloween decor...using Vinyl!

Here's a few quick and easy project I made for Halloween...using vinyl.

If the shoe fits...

I used a plain metal sign (found at Michael's) and cut the witch shoe from the Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge at 6.5". The font is also from Happy Hauntings. And then, it's embellished with purple bling!

You say Wicked...

For this project, I used the witch from the Wrap it Up cartridge, cut at 7.5". The font is from Songbird, welded on my gypsy, with the exception of WICKED...which is from Happy Hauntings again.

Skull pumpkin...

I like to make temporary decorations for our pumpkins, as we wait for closer to Halloween to carve them. This skull and bones is from Indie Art.

My Pink Stamper Blog Hop!

Welcome to the October Pinkalicious blog hop for My Pink Stamper! You should've arrived here from Roberta's fantastic blog Tx Scrapper Mom! This month we were to make a treat or goodie bag. I made an easy 'peek-a-boo' pumpkin bag filled with candy corn! I wanted to make something that would be quick and easy to make to give to my co-workers on Halloween (since they keep thinking I should bring them some of my cricut Angry Birds that I made for our work craft fair! See them in the blog post below).

Peek-a-boo Pumpkin Bag

Materials used:

Cricut Cartridges - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More...Smiley Cards...and Gypsy Wanderings
Cardstock - Bazzill (Black , White, Orange, Green, and Brown)
Sentiments Stamp - My Pink Stamper Yummy-licious
Mini Pearls - Martha Stewart
Black Ink
Green Curling Ribbon

Directions - to make the peek-a-boo bag, I used my gypsy and placed the small bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More on the mat. Then, using Gypsy Wanderings I placed a circle shape directly on the front panel of the bag (mine's a little off center but it doesn't show when the pumpkin is added). I then cut the bag out, and the cricut cut the circle shape.

I also cut one pumpkin out of black paper and one out of orange. The black pumpkin I positioned over the circle hole and adhered to the bag. And then I was able to use some foam squares to pop up the orange pumpkin to give it a little dimension. The tag is also from Gypsy Wanderings and then stamped with Enjoy from the Yummy-licious stamp set by My Pink Stamper!

Thanks for hopping by! You're next stop is to Tracy's amazing blog, Craft Junkie Too!

Angry Birds...using Sweet Tooth Boxes!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while...there's been way too much going on. But, I was able to get some crafting done for a craft fair I did...and, one of the things I made was Angry Bird boxes...designed after the popular video game. I used the Sweet Tooth cartridge for all the boxes. The red bird, black bomb bird, and green pig king - all use the same ice cream sundae box that I used for my designer pumpkins below. The yellow bird uses the cake slice box (since that bird has a triangle shape).

These were so much fun to make and were a huge hit at the craft fair!
