Boo Ghost Treat Box

I know I haven't been posting much lately and I am sorry for that.  Life has just been crazy.  I made this little treat box today for my father in law's birthday which is just before Halloween.  I filled it with cashews, his fav.  This is a LW file from the silhouette store.  I did make it smaller than it imported.  The ghost and boo are on foam tape.   All the paper and ribbon is from American Crafts.

Stanleys Halloween

This cute little cat witch is from the Stanleys Halloween collection.  It is brand new and will be in the store on Friday so make sure to go pick it up!!  You can get it here.  I cut a circle out and ran fishing line between the back pieces of the witch and then anchored them on the sides of the circle so it looks like she is flying.  On the inside I added a spooky tree and bat and crow all cut from the Graveyard Scene, get it here.

Happy Birthday You Rebel Scum

This last week was my little grandson James birthday, he turned 4.  He is small for 4 while his brothers are big, but he makes up for it in personality!  He wanted a storm trooper costume for his birthday so I went with that theme.
This is the card I made for him it is a file from SVG Cutting Files from one of the hops, unfortunately it is no longer available.  The stamps are from Jaded Blossom.

Let it Snow!

No I am not ready for snow!!!  I just wanted to make this card.  So it was made with the Explore and the  Snow Angel cartridge.  The little boy is on an action wobble and the face, boots, mittens and shirt are all on foam tape.  I used a punch for the snowflakes.

It's your bird-day!

Here is another print and cut from the Cricut Explore.  I have the bird on foam tape.  Not really sure why the colors look faded except for the ribbon...I tried a few different things and this was the best it was going to get.  It is much more colorful in person.   I got the idea for this from Joy at Obsessed with scrapbooking.

Wish Big Card

So I have been playing with the print and cut feature in Design Space.  I am torn on how I feel about it.  First off it cuts the images perfectly which is awesome!!   Plus it is nice to have access to all the Imagine cartridges at once.  The cons though...I can't use safari to do a print and cut it comes out way to small so I have to use firefox which isn't terrible except that I always use safari.  You also can't print and cut anything bigger than 6" wide even if you have a wide format printer:(  Also when you try to print the papers they come out with lines through them because it has them in tiles.  So if you try to fill an image it will have lines.  The only images I didn't get lines in were the stock images.  So no printing sheets of DP. You also can't remove the registration lines even if you only want to print not cut so it is really wasteful to try to print paper for backgrounds or to cut something out.

Okay enough about all my issues.  This card was made with the Explore and the Imagine More cartridge.  I printed the background paper and the cow and her head is on foam tape and here body is on an action wobble.

Cupcake Bears

These fun little cupcake holders were made with my Cricut Explore and the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge.  They were cut at 9.5" from page 15.   The ears were made with punches and I just hand cut the nose.   I'm going to use these for some of my littles birthday treats.  You could use them for party favors and put a cupcake in them or just fill with treats.  I also thought they would be super cute for a baby shower.   I got the idea for these from Kristen Swain.
