I really do use my Cricut machines for everything including Halloween costumes!
This year my daughter is dressing up as a tardis (time travelling phone booth) from the show Doctor Who. I still need to laminate the poster board (in case of rain) and attach shoulder straps.
Last year my son went as a nuclear reactor worker. We bought an inexpensive painting suit and I used vinyl for the lettering and symbols.
I love that I designed these costumes with my kids! An added bonus is that you can create costumes large enough for a winter coat to go underneath. (Often necessary here.)

I have never cut a pre-designed layout on my Cricut Expression or Explore. I figure, why not take advantage of the creativity of the Provocraft designers. This layout called "Birds of a Feather" is available on Design Space for free. I added the clothespins,ribbon and buttons.
I like it! It's perfect for an Instax camera photo of my daughter and her friend. The cameras, film and accessories are now available at Walmart and Michaels.
If you are curious about these cameras they are super fun but the photo quality is much like its predecessor the Polaroid camera. It IS perfect for a twelve year old girl though! And, after all, I'm happy with any scrap-worthy shots.

Of course, I had to post some cards today! Though, I do not enjoy making sympathy cards, I also believe that they can be the most important to give out. I like to make a few at a time so I always have one available.
