Countdown to Christmas (Advent Calendar)

I saw an ad for the Bo Bunny line, it was a canvas bundle with Bo Bunny papers. They had some project ideas and I saw one like this - loved it, so had to make it. But, I didn't have the Bo Bunny line or the canvas bundle so I did my own. I had a 16 x 20 canvas that I painted. Used my cricut for the numbers and the Christmas cuts. Used my Xyron to laminate the number cards and voila - done! I really like it, was able to make it in 1 day and I'm gonna make a few more for gifts. Hope you like it...

Christmas Candy Gifts

These are made using Ragu Spaghetti jars - aren't they cute? I used my new "Lite Jolly Holidays" cartridge for all of the cuts then filled the jars with candy. Simple and cute!

3D Coffin Candy Dish

OMG - this is such a fun project to do. This coffin is from Happy Hauntings (one of my favorite carts), I cut the coffin at 11.5", the gate at 3" and the tomb at 5". I used my IRock to add a little bling on the gate and the cross. My papers all have a shimmer to them so it looks real cool in person. I have been wanting to make this and saw Liz's over at Liz's Paper Loft and decided to give her version a shot. I am going to make 4-5 more of these and will mix them up some once I get rid of my sinus headache (hard to be real creative when hurting so). Thanks for stopping by...

Here are a few more decorations that I have made for my daughter. The 3D tree is from Happy Hauntings along with the ghosts and grass. This is so much fun to make! I also made a couple spider webs to hang from the ceiling and some bats and spiders to stick around.

Family of Ghosts

Here is a family of ghosts that I made using paper doll dress up cart. I made these for my oldest daughter and her family, they have long strings to hang from the ceiling... Thanks for looking!

Gabby Abby's Challenge

Scrapbookaholic by Abby is having a challenge and this week it is to use the colors Orange, Black and Purple on any project. Abby did a project without using her Cricut so I decided to do the same.

Hope you like it...To see the challenge, hop on over to: http://scrapbookaholic.blogspot.com/2010/10/gaby-abby-challenges-with-sei-week-1.html

"BOO" sign

I made 4 of these cute BOO signs last night. My daughter wants one for her room and one for her teacher. I made a couple extra to sell. I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the 6 x 6 squares and used recycled cereal boxes for my "chipboard". The Ghosts are from Happy Hauntings and the font is from All Mixed Up. Thanks for looking...

Some cute little "purses"

Birthday Gift for a Friend of my Daughter
Gift Card Holder Bag
Purse with Matching 3 x 3 Cards

The pictures arent that great - I used glitter pens, it looks great but doesnt show in the pics :(

I made a couple of cute little purses recently. Some are for gift cards and some have matching 3 x 3 cards that fit inside the purse. The idea for the style of this came from Crafting Haven as she has made some adorable purses! I will be making more of these for all of the events/holidays. Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday Challenge

This weeks challenge over at Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge is to create a project without using any machines - No Cricut, No Cuttlebug, etc! My daughter wanted to give some friends these little packs of M & M 's and asked me dress them up - so that's what I did. I just used cardstock paper, stamps and a sticker - Easy Peasy!

I also wanted to make a card for Mary's challenge over at Cardz Tv (http://cardztv.blogspot.com/2010/09/halloween-challenge.html) but I am having the hardest time deciding which one to enter - lol! Most of the cuts on these cards were made from Mini Monsters as well as Cricu Lite Celebrate with Flourish - Enjoy!
