Hope you are all having a fun and safe Halloween! Since it is the last day to make Halloween cards for the year, I decided to make two more. The first one was made with Everyday Paper Dolls and the second with Mini Monsters. Happy Halloween...now I must put the Halloween cards away until next year :)
Happy Halloween! I am trying to spend my time getting some cards done before trick or treating starts around here. This is my Cricut Circle sketch challenge creation. You had to turn into a birthday theme which was perfect because I need 2 birthday cards for friends this week. Here is what I came up with using George cart and Once Upon a Princess cart. I first made the one with no embossing and decided it need a little more texture so I made another using the cuttlebug!

Well, now that November 1st is approaching my mind can start thinking about Christmas, lol! Here is my first Christmas card of the season, and I LOVE how it turned out :) I used white paper and baby blue to give a little pop. This card is made with the Christmas cart. If you have a gypsy and register it by the 31st, you will get this cart in the download!
This card is also made for the Throwback Thursday challenge and the No Time to Stamp challenge. You were suppose to use Celebrations for the Throwback challenge, but my sister has borrowed several of my carts and I don't have that one right now so I had to improvise! Enjoy!
HAPPY MONDAY FRIENDS! I haven't forgot about all of you...I had a very busy weekend and did not get much crafting done! Luckily though there is no school around here on Thursday and Friday so I will be able to get lots of crafting done and catch up on lost time! Here is a quick bag I made this weekend though to hold a present. It is made from Mini Monsters at 11". I LOVE how it turned out :) Have a great day and I will be back with posts on Thursday!!
Here's to another weekend :) I broke down and ordered a gypsy today...hopefully it will be worth the money I do not have, lol! I had some time today to work on a birthday card for a good friend. I made it using Create a Critter and the fish are patterned with the Best Friends cart. I added texture to the sand and water background by crumpling up the papers. I am really excited how the card turned out. I made this card using the imagine because that was what was on my crafting table already, but everything can easily be cut with your regular bug and colored/patterned paper.
My Pink Stamper is having many different challenges this week. Yesterdays challenge was to make a fall or halloween card. I decided to make this little candycorn trick-or-treater from Mini Monsters. Since I love candycorn, this card is good enough for me to eat, lol! Enjoy!
My best friend was the one who pushed me to get the imagine so I decided that I had to make him a nice card with it to show him my appreciation. I found this CUTE image on Nursery Tails that fit the occasion perfectly! I am having so much fun using the imagine machine. I love the quality of the images that it produces. It is also so simple to use :)
For this image, I printed the image flat and then printed the layers for the animals and the reeds. I used used foam dots to give the card dimension. One foam dot was used for the animals and two were stacked to add even more dimension to the reeds. Enjoy!
As promised, here is the CC blog monthly challenge. The challenge was to make a scrapbook layout or home decor item with the theme of "Celebrating Creativity." You had to use the shadow feature (which I used on the font), embellishments, and patterned paper. I decided to make a home decor item to give to a friend who enjoys putting out decorative books and photo albums on her coffee table. I bought a cheap photo album and covered it in pink paper. I then decorated it with my cut out images and embellishments :)
Well, it has been a day filled with the imagine around here! I have made a few projects to share, and I can't wait :) The first two projects are for the Cricut Circle blog weekly and monthly challenge. I am going to put them in separate posts so they are not so long! Let's hop right to it and start off with the weekly challenge, shall we...
This week's challenge was to make something using pink and two other features from a list which I choose jewels and scallops off of. I used the Best Friends cart and the imagine to create this cute little card! Foam squares were used to add dimension as well :)
Enjoy and I will post the monthly challenge project in a few minutes!

IT'S FRIDAY!!! You know what that means....crafting time :) WOOHOO!!! I am so excited to play around with the imagine a little bit more and have fun making some other projects! This afternoon I decided to start off with my Throwback Thursday Challenge for My Creative Time. You had to make a shape card using Create-a-Critter and use orange.
I have to make a confession that I have never used the Cricut to make a shape card. I know...*gasp*! I do not own a gypsy and the design studio and I have just never gotten along. Today I decided that the expression and I had to try and make peace with the design studio and here was the result. I am pleased and think that I will have to work on some more shape cards soon :) Hip-hippo-ray! The challenge was a success!!!!
I hope everyone is having a great week! My imagine arrived yesterday and I was so excited!!!! I will still be posting regular cricut projects as well, but here is one of the first projects I created with the imagine :) I used my favorite Create a Critter! The scalloped imagine in the back is on the machine, and I filled it in with a pattern from Nursery Tails. I have not had too much time to mess around with the imagine yet, as I have conferences this week, but I can't wait to explore some more. I also added a little glitter glue on the flower stems and am going to add it to the My Pink Stamper "Bling it Up" Imagine challenge from last week. Enjoy!
Happy Sunday! I hope you are all ready for a new week :) Here is a card that I created yesterday for the Cricut Circle Blog Weekly Challenge. If you are not a Circle member, you can still check out this blog for another 8 days!! There is some AMAZING inspiration on there. This week's challenge was to make something with the French Manor Cart and use pearls of gems. Hope you enjoy!
Happy Friday Everyone :) I can't believe how fast another week has gone by and it is already October! Wow! Time flies. Here is my entry for MPS Spooky Challenge. I used 3 Birds on Parade again! Since I had some scraps left, I made 2 different cards moving the border accent a little.
