Boo-tiful Banner

I wasn't planning on making a Halloween banner but I have seen so many beautiful/creative/detailed ones posted. I felt that with a black fireplace, I really should make one...

All the paper is Core'dinations. I crumpled up the letters and sanded them. The pumpkin ridges were created using the line in my round coffee table! I used my bone folder and then sanded the ridge.

I am entering this at Fantabulous Cricut for their Halloween challenge this week.

Birthday card - OUAP cartridge

I love how this card turned out. I used some embossed paper from my stash for the background. The sentiment is layered 3 times and the gift is merely a rectangle with a ribbon!

Cross-country layout

This is my son's second year of fall cross-country meets. His school walks to a nearby beautiful, tree-filled park. The students run races against other community schools. I enjoy watching the meets and feel so proud of my son.

Last year, my layout for these races was all done with the Sports Mania cartridge. So this year, I wanted something different. A layout that shows the lovely fall we are having as well as the awesome meets.

I am entering this layout for the following challenges:

1. Falling Leaves at Fantabulous Cricut

2. Anything but a card at Made by Momo

3. Sports theme at My Creative Time

Pink Stamper and Gypsy challenge

The Pink Stamper has a challenge this week to make something cute and there is a Gypsy challenge this week to make something layered. I hope this card will fit the bill for both!

I welded this coffee pot with my Gypsy to turn it into a shape card. ( I know, I'm addicted to shape cards.) The stamps I bought without a package from a yard sale but they are all super cute "coffee and tea" sentiments.

Pink Stamper's Halloween challenge

These are the "lootbags" for my son's 10th birthday party. I figured with the party being in October that I could use creepy as a theme.

I love this skeleton from the October 31st cartridge. Everything on the tags is inked (I regret not distressing more) and then covered in "spiderwebs".

The stainless steel water bottles are from Old Navy and they are filled with eyeball gumballs.

World card-making day

I had to make at least one card! This card is to enter at Fantabulous Cricut. Their challenge this week is to sew or "faux-sew" on a project. Here is mine.

All of the cuts are from Gypsy Wanderings and my sewing is of the "faux-sew" variety. ( My favourite kind of sewing)

Wow! This is my 100th post. I'm slowly learning my way...

Now I'm off to deliver the card.
