Acorn Box

I have been having so much fun with all these new fall boxes.  This cute little acorn box is from My Scrap Chick.  Super quick and easy to do.  All the edges are inked and I tied a double bow and attached with a glue dot and then added a button.

Best Witches to You Bag

Here is another fun project I helped my sweet little Chelsea with.  She had so much fun making these, it was so fun for me to watch her.  I gave her my baby Cricut and she is hooked!
We cut these out of American Crafts Paper, love their paper it is so awesome in the die cut machines.  These were cut from the Wrap it up cart at a couple sizes,  one was at 8" and the others at 6.25".   We sized them in CCR so we could get the witch to fit on the front exactly right.  The edges are inked also.  The stamp is from My Craft Spot, Best Witches to You set, super cute and fun set.  The ribbon and twine is from My Craft Spot also.

Haunted House Box

Here is my last entry for the Create a Critter 2 challenge. I cut a plain box from the Wrap it up cart at 6" and cut off the top flaps and assembled the box. I cut the house at 2.5" and the ghost at 1.5". All the edges are inked and the house is embossed. I also added yellow stickles to the windows and door of the house. The ghost is on foam tape.

Fall Card

It's another challenge over at My Craft Spot, the challenge is falling leaves, so anything with leaves on it.  I love fall, after living for 16 years in Vermont fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I do miss all the colors of Vermont, so I made this card as a salute to the colors of Vermont.
It is an SVGcuts file, have I mentioned how much I love their files?!!  The paper is from DCWV Autumn Melody stack, and American Crafts card stock.    The stamp is from My Craft Spot, it's the Happy Thanksgiving set.  The ribbon is also from My Craft Spot, it is the Milk Chocolate.
All the edges are inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.

Sweet Baby Boy!

Last week my daughter had her 3rd little boy, and I got to be there for his birth and spent a week helping out.  Here is my newest little one, baby James as his brothers call him.

Ghost Card

This is another one of the projects I made for the Cricut Create a Critter 2 challenge.   Again I tried to weld the shadows in CCR and it would not work so I cut 2 of the shadows (one being flipped) and scored the back one about 1/2" down from the top and glued it to the back of the front one.  I cut this at 5" out of American Crafts card stock.

Questions Answered

I have gotten several questions asking where I got the spider paper for the pillow boxes from this post.  It is from K&Company and is called Spook Tacular, it is an old stack and I don't know if it is still available or not.  If you can get it, it has some of the cutest papers in it.

Tree card

Here is yet another project I did for the Cricut Create a Critter challenge.  I cut this little tree with all it's layers at 4".   It is on foam tape.  The ribbon is from American Crafts the paper is Imaginisce and American Crafts card stock.

Spider Pillow Box

My sweet little daughter in law Chelsea was here and I helped her make a few fun things.  We used the Art Philosophy cart for these pillow boxes cut at 6", this paper was so fun and easy to make super cute by adding some google eyes to them.  The stamps are from the Best Witches To You set from My Craft Spot, so are the little die cut tags, they are the tiny tags metal dies.  We used Orange Divine and Green Apple twine to tie them on with, also from My Craft Spot.

I have been getting a lot of questions asking where I got this paper.  It is an oldie but goodie, it is from K&Company and called Spook Tacular.  It has several fun papers in the pack.

Nuts About You card

This another project I made for the Cricut challenge.  I used Create a Critter 2 for this.  I sized the acorn at 5" and cut 2 of them, one of them was flipped.  I tried to weld it in CCR, but it would not work, so I cut 2 and scored the back of the flipped one and glued the top part of it down to the front.  I ran the layers through the cuttlebug and inked the edges.  It is put together with foam tape.  The tag was just resized in CCR to fit the stamp, which is from My Pink Stamper.

I made these for the Cricut Create a Critter 2 challenge last week.  I didn't post them on my blog do to the My Craft Spot Stamp Release.
