Fun Cards

Ok-Lets get a little honest.  My cards are not always the best but I am trying.  Now to tell you a little secret-when I make cards I never give them away.  Not sure why they just do not make it to the mail box.  (I hate that)

Many times I have made christmas cards, addressed them, added postage and nothing.... They still do not make it to the mail box.  I am working to be better at that.

So with that said here are a few that I made.
 I used the October 31st cart for these 2
I used Happy Hauntings for this one.  I wonder who I will send it to.....  If the Shoe fits...

Come back tomorrow and I will show you a pic of my family at the pumpkin patch last weekend.

Halloween Frame

My bestie gave me the "Happy Haunting" cart.  It is so cool...  I was looking thru the book and there was a sample of a frame.  So I decided to make it.  It turned out really cute.

I cut it at 6 inches.  The paper I used was BoBunny's Whoo-ligans. Love this paper.  I also used black tule and made a flower and sewed a button in the middle. 

I added some white dots and bing-bang-boom you are done.  Make these for friends to add halloween pics to. 

Happy Thursday!

***Boo Banner***

Hello All,

I have several items that I will be posting over the next week. (so stay tuned)

This is a banner I made for my fireplace.  I have to say -I Love It....
The letters were cut with George at 3 inches. The banner was cut at 7 1/2 inches.  I used a scalloped punch for the top and punched a hole to thread the netting thru it. The black netting was from Michaels in the wedding section.

 I used Martha Stewart glitter around the edges and for the bottom later of the letters.  I also used black chalk ink to distress edges.  (Tim Holtz-My favorite)

Paper was from DCWV Halloween stack

 I used the Stampin Up scallop punch to add the circle under the letters.
 I also added a little bit of orange ribbon to give it a little color and it goes great with my pumpkins.
Enjoy!!!!  Come back for more.

Everyday Cricut

First of all I have to apologize for being so absent this last month.  I have been super busy fundraising for "Susan G. Komen".  We did the 5K last weekend in San Francisco and this weekend we are having a "Crop for the Cure-Swarm" with 138 of our closest friends. (ha,ha)  So many of us have been super busy every minute of the day for the past month or more.

Ok-Now to the project- "Spooktacular" made with Mini Monsters

This was a fun 2-page layout. I used the new BoBunny paper "Whoo-ligan". I also used the cardstock from BoBunny to match.

The spiderweb in the middle was cut with the Martha Stewart punch from her new halloween line. She has some really cool punches...

How about some pics?

 I love this witch-I did use a little stickes and signo pens to add a great touch.

This kit was design for Monique Griffith Designs.  The kit is $25.00 plus shipping and include very detailed instructions and all paper, brads & ribbon to complete project.  Please email Monique at with your zip code and she will let you know about the shipping.  You may also purchase directions only for $10.00.

Have a super weekend.  Come back Monday for pictures from the Swarm.
