Autumn Splendor Cricut Challenge

Weekly Challenge #3

So we were asked to create a layout, card, home decor, etc.  It needed to have a color scheme of Gray, burgundy, tan, and orange.  It had to have 2 cuts with the cricut and the sky was the limit.  So as we went to the Pumpkin Patch Saturday I chose a fall layout.  I used the Hello Kitty Font for the title with the Blackout Shadow.  The sign was made with the H2O cartridge, sunflower with Stretch Your Imagination, the vine came from Zoo Baloo, and the Pumpkins came from Simply Charmed.  I cut the tree out a little on the other page to accommodate a mat for a 5x7 picture.  I used Glossy Accents on the dots going up around the tree to give them a little umph.  This paper was too pretty to cover it up.

Halloween Cards

Well today I was on a halloween kick.  My original push in this direction came from the Jitterbuggin Challenge ( which I created Oscar the Grouch for) .  Once I got going I could not stop.  So for Oscar I used Sesame Street, Basketball cartridge.

The Second Card I used some beaded ribbon and a fun sticker.  This layout is a little more simple, but I really lived the way it came out.  And then finally I used this great halloween stamp from Michaels.  I liked the shape of this card it is a little something different.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge

What did I love about this weeks challenge?  Let's see Pink, Jewels, Glitter, and my precious dog Billie Joe.  I have been wanting to try to use these leaves in a layout for some time.  So they were my initial piece in the design.  I cut the flourishes using the Serenade cartridge at 6" wide. The shadow paper is pink and then I used a double sided sticky paper for the front.  I covered it with Martha Stewart Brownstone Glitter.  Really I love anything pink with extra bling, but the main reason I love this layout is my dog Billie Joe.  While she is no longer with me she holds a special place in my heart.

Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge

So it was a busy weekend ( as usual), but I managed to squeeze in some scrapbooking time.  So here is one of the projects I worked on.  I have had this picture to add to my scrapbook for a while, but never found motivation to start on it.  The thought of winning a workbox from The Original Scrapbox did just the trick.  I really love how this came out.  I used bright colors and really tries to tie several different techniques in.  I cut all the words using Basecamp cricut cartridge and used jewels for the I's.  This was really fun and I love the big flower in the corner.  I can't wait until the next time mom, aunt ethel and I get together to scrap.  Which will be in January at the Beach Retreat hosted by GiGi's Scrapbookin.  Yippee!!
