Crafty Monday !

Hello everyone , Happy Monday !

 Today I am super excited to start as a  design team member for a great challenge blog , Bitten By the Bug 2 , very grateful !! Our challenge for this week is to use any overlay from any cricut cartridge in a project , link it up and let us know which one you used . I am also happy to be a guest designer at one of my other favorite challenge blogs Craftin' Desert Divas , our linky party is Say it with a Sentiment ,any project with a sentiment will go perfect , and you have two weeks to come and play !!

I decided to make a mini fall banner for my scrapbook room , to hang over all my pumpkins ( I have a good harvest ;-) ) , and fall themed projects , I made small because I wanted to see how the colors are going to look , I plan on making a larger version later on . I used my cricut Pretty Pennants cartridge for the beautiful leaf overlay and I used the bottom scallop option , I then typed the word Blessings on my Silhouette ,the font is Annabel Antique Script , cut them out and layered them with their offsets , then used sparkly ribbon in between .

Hope you enjoy and have a Wonderful day !

Pumpkin Patch layout

Hello everyone ! Today we have  a new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges ! If you enjoy making layouts, then this is the site for you ! We have to follow a recipe as well as a sketch , hey its a challenge  ! I decided to do a layout of my two older sons when they were 2 and 4 years old ! Quite a long time ago , I am glad I am working through my piles of pictures ! Instead of flowers from the recipe , I used pumpkins , and for a poem or song , I used fall words . I hope you join us !!
Thank you for stopping by .  I Hope you feel inspired to create !!



I used Stickles in Orange Peel , Cinnamon, and diamond, I applied them to the pumpkins as well as around the edges of my pumpkin words ,I then added Sparkle n Sprinkle Sunset Opaque Glitter G1040 to make it stand out even more !  I embossed
with fall swirls embossing folder by Darice .
Paper is Recollections , and My minds Eye .
I used my silhouette for the titles, and the words from Miss Kate Cuttables, as well as the pumpkins.
Some pumpkins are from my Paper dolls Cricut cartridge, I used EK Success Border punch .

I saw this navy and pink color combo ( one of my favorites) and I had to use it !! I tried to keep this one a little more simple , my version of simple , I still ended up cutting one of the 12x12 patterned papers at an angle and matting them and obviously didn't keep it as simple as I thought !!

Hope you enjoy !! Have a wonderful day !!

My Vinyl Project !
Hello everyone !! I am back with my second post for today ! The earlier one is for a fun blog hop I was invited to participate in , there's some wonderful prizes if you would like to participate !

I am sharing the second version of my 3d pumpkin easel card I made earlier . I decided to make two versions because one is for those of us who have a cricut , and the second one is the silhouette version .

You definitely need to check them out ( I have some exciting news concerning Sparkle n Sprinkle ) make sure to check back by my blog so you don't miss it !!

I made the silhouette version, (first two pictures ) from an scallop circle easel card I received from My Scrap Chick !!!  They have some wonderful designs and they are having a design team call at the moment !! I chose to use the scalloped circles to make my 3D pumpkins , I added some embossing and glitter to make them sparkly !!

For my Cricut version I made it  a little different , I made these pumpkins from actual pumpkins on my cricut create a critter 2 and paper dolls everyday !  I also added a fence from ribbons and rosettes and my tree is made from scalloped circles from the cricut craft room, the owl is from create a critter !

My last and fun but a little hard project are the vinyl wall frames I made for my scrapbook room .
I made these from fancy frames cartridge, and the words are from wall décor and more as well as home décor .  It was my first time working with vinyl , and I am hooked !! Thank you fantabulous Cricut for challenging us to work with it this week !!
