More Witch Shoes

So when I made the other witch shoes it made me think about ruby red slippers! So here is my version of them, the oreo's are actually white centers for these but they almost look colored.

This is my 8th post today all Halloween. If you missed them just scroll down.

princess party shoes cut at 7"
cut out of red card stock and sprayed with spray adhesive and sprinkled with glitter

My hands were covered with glue and glitter, it was really cold here so I couldn't spray this outside so I did it in my craft room in the trash can. It was pretty messy. There was red glitter everywhere.

These fun witch shoes were made using the princess party cartridge. I got the idea for these from Mel here.

As if that's not enough incredible news...Robin asked me to be on her very first Design Team! Can you believe it?! I have been so excited about this and a little nervous I don't want to let her down.

I have seen some of these stamps and they are so awesome, you will love them. We will be having a Stamp Release Celebration November 14-19 with lots of inspiration from the Design Team. Grab the blinkie on my sidebar and post it on your blog and help spread the news.

I made these little bags to give to some friends. I am also entering these in the Cricut Circle weekly challenge, which is to make a gift for someone.
Wrap it up box cut at 5.5"

Chic & Scary
tree cut at 3.25"
fence cut at 1.75" two times once in grey and once in black
I inked all the edges and inked the fence with white and black to make it look worn. I cut the bird off of the black fence and popped it up on the grey one. I glued down the moon, popped up the tree and double popped up the fence.

Halloween bags and tags

My Sister in law makes caramel apples and candies and sells them year round, but for the holidays she likes to dress them up more. So I made her some bags and tags. The bags and boxes were all cut at fit to page all are from wrap it up except the tombstone and that is from happy hauntings. The tags are made from SU stamps and punches. I'm going to add a skeleton to the tombstone.

The tags were made with Stampin Up stamps and punches.

Cricut Circle Blogiversary

This is a 12x12 page layout made for the Cricut Circle Blogiversary challenge. The challenge is to use one title, two cuts, and three buttons. The papers for this are Bo-bunny and K&company. I inked the edges and popped up the title and the house and the fence. The fence, drippy goo and tombstones are MS punches.
Autumn Celebrations house and layers cut at 7"
title cut at 2.75"
moon cut at 4" once in black and once in cream then I just turned the cream to attach it to the black so the bat cut out would not line up.

I have been on a roll the last couple of days creating like crazy. I made this box for the one year blog anniversary, for the cricut circle blog. The challenge was to make something monochromatic with 2 cuts. The pictures look like I did them in black and white, but it is because the paper is grey and white.

Dog House Card

I had so much fun making this card! It is for a challenge for the Cricut Circle, which is to use one of the circle cartridges. I used the Pop-up neighborhood. The dog house is cut at 4.25" with it's layers. I welded two together in my gypsy for the base out of kraft card stock then cut it again out of the dark brown. I also cut it one more time out of the brown and cut the roof off and popped it up. I ran the red siding thru the cutllebug with the wood like folder and inked all the edges with dark brown ink. The name plate is popped up also. The dog was cut at 2.25" with his layers. He is on an action wobble. All the paper is from American Crafts.

Saturday Oct. 1 was the St. George marathon. I trained for 5 months to run this and 2 weeks before the race I got a stress fracture in my hip and so I could not run. I cried for several days, I was so dissapointed to say the least. I know it seems crazy to be dissapointed to not go torture myself by running 26.2 miles in 80 - 90 degree heat, but I was ready and had worked so hard. My son Aaron and son in law Jonny ran without me and did awesome! Here they are after the race, still smiling I might add.
