Happy Haunting

Hi Everyone!

Happy Halloween!

One last Halloween project for the year  :(

This one uses the Cricut Frightful Affair cartridge and my most favorite paper- October Afternoon!

Be safe tonight and eat lots of candy!

Here's a funny video about how to trade your Halloween candy haul.
(and I agree with every word of it!)

Party Favors

Hi Everyone!

I made some cute Party Favors today!
I was just trying out an idea to see if I liked it.
I think I do!

I used some EK Success Punches for the bat and leaf and attached them to paper straws.
3 Girl JAM ribbon in Goblin Green, Harvest Orange, and Sunflower were used around the mason jar lid.
These could be filled with candy or a drink.  (I prefer candy!)

You can link up your own Favors at the 3 Girl JAM Party Favor Challenge  through Thursday!

Hi Everyone!
(I'm also over at Pink by Design today!)

I have a very Autumny (is that a word!?) card for you today.

I wanted to do something for the Thanksgiving season but didn't have a lot of time to spend in my craft room this week.
Cricut Imagine to the rescue!

I used the Enjoy the Seasons cartridge to print and cut out the background shape as well as the Fall Tree.
I wrapped it all up with some Green Apple Twine and Sunflower Yellow Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.

The "Thankful" sentiment is from Pink by Design's Bracketful set.

Just a reminder that the last Ink it Pink Challenge is going on right now.  You have until next Tuesday to link up.  There will be some exciting changes starting in November on the Pink by Design Blog-- so be watching for that!

Today starts Challenge #5 at the 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog.
Make sure to link up your projects for your chance to win some 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon and a $15.00 Gift Certificate to Scraptastical Kreations

Have a great weekend!

Melisa's Blog-Aversary Hop!

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the One Year Celebration Blog Hop for my friend Melisa from Melisa's Crafty Creations!!
If you came from Jeanne's blog you are in the right spot.  If not, you'll want to start back at the beginning with Melisa so you don't miss a single thing!
Melisa started her blog one year ago (tomorrow) so it is only fitting that her Celebration Hop have a Fall type theme.  Since she (Melisa) is so incredibly crafty, I knew I had to do something extra special and something that I have never done before.

How about a big burlap flower!?!

I used some of the *New Burlap Trim from 3 Girl JAM, some Sunflower and Harvest Orange crinkle ribbon, and Pink by Design Stamps (It's a Wrap 2).  The leaves and pumpkins were both done with an EK Success Punch (No electric die cutter on this project- gasp!)

You each have a chance now to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the 3 Girl JAM store so you can grab your own Burlap- or Ribbon- or Bow Maker- or anything else you'd like!
Just make sure you are a follower of Melisa's blog (and mine too!).
For an extra chance, you can become a follower of the 3 Girl JAM Blog or "Like" their Facebook page and then come back here and let me know that you did!

Your next stop is Kathy.

Happy Hopping!

You're a Scream

Hi Everyone!

Is everyone else getting in the mood for Halloween?
Today is Pink by Design Day!!

I've been seeing so many awesome projects lately and just got the Cricut Frightful Affair Cartridge.
I'll be honest- I haven't bought a Cricut Cart in months.  I saw this cartridge when it first came out and thought it was pretty cool but couldn't justify spending the money on it.
I saw it in the Cricut Rewards (along with a Cricut Circle membership) so decided to use my points on it.
I am so glad I did!
This cartridge is awsome!!
There are so many images on it and it's not filled with tons of layers, so everything is really easy to assemble.

The background is stamped on orange paper with Pink by Design: Big Hexagons in various shades of orange and gold.
The sentiment is Pink by Design: Animated Greetings.
3 Girl JAM Burlap Trim behind the "Boo!"
and Cleo the Cat adds just the right Spook factor!

Master Crafter

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited to post this project today!

Sarah Hamer (Pink Cricut) is hosting a Master Crafter contest for 100 people.
We were all sent a box containing unknown items.
Of course I didn't take a picture of everything when I got it- I was too excited and just got my craft on as soon as I ripped open the box.

Here's what was inside:

- Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott 
-DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by DCWV Deals
-Cotton Bag Sponsored by State line Bag Co. 
-1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by Queen & Co.
-Sentiment stamp sponsored by Pink by Design
- 2 Assorted Buttons

We were to use as much from the included supplies as we could.  (I used some of everything!)
We could also use some things from our own stash- I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle ribbon,  Pink by Design Pocketful Stamps and Big Hexagons background stamps, and various inks.

My Master Crafter project.

Make sure to stop by Sarah's blog to vote for your favorite Master Crafter project!

Coffee and Ribbon

Hi Everyone!

Coffee and Ribbon are two of my favorite things!

I made a card specifically with the 3 Girl JAM Challenge in mind.

The coffee cup is from the Silhouette online store.
The coffee background stamp, the banner, and the sentiment are all from Pink by Design.
The ribbon is 3GJ Ice Blue.

My daughter looked at this and said, "You really need to give this to a friend."
I think she's right.  :0)

You have until 6:00pm (CST) on Thursday to link up your coffee and ribbon projects for your chance to win some 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon and some Fresh Brewed Design Digis!
