Happy Halloweenie Blog Hop with Paper Patch Crafts

Welcome to your 1st stop on the Happy Halloweenie  Blog Hop with Paper Patch Crafts
I have 3 card to show you and 1 layout. All of the projects were made with Websters Pages Once Upon A Halloween paper and embellishment Line which is available for purchase now at
So here are my projects :)
 This layout was super easy to do. I just layered the die cut paper onto the orange print. I then added 1 of the journaling cards to the center bottom of the layout. I then cut 2 pumpkins out using my Cricut then added the Prima fall leaves. I outlined the pumpkins with Stickles Glitter Glue in of course Pumpkin:) I then added the blooms, buttons and bling that Anne provided. I used Trendy Twine threaded through the buttons.
 On card 1 I used the front and back side of 1 piece of the Once Upon A Halloween Paper and a beautiful piece of lace trim from Paper Patch Crafts the cute little pennant is from the same line so is that adorable little owl. I then added the cute blooms that Anne provided and buttons as well. I used halloween Trendy Twine in place of ribbon. The bottom blooms I used Liquid Pearls for the center of the flowers.
 On card 2 I used the cute trick or treat bag paper and I cut out the paper with the wording from another sheet of the Once Upon A Halloween line then used the spider acetate overlay. Then I added the skeleton key embellishment.
This last card is a combo of 3 papers from the same paper line as the others. The Happy Haunting Sticker is also Websters pages. The pretty orange bloom and the web charm are all from Once Upon A Halloween. Now all of the Papers and embellishments are available for purchase right now at

Welcome everyone:) Today's project was to make something for Halloween using Pink in the design for
So on this project I used Cricut Cartridge
A Frightful Affair which can be purchased here Erica's Store
That link will take you directly to the cartridge in her store and it is on SALE!!!!
Ok with that being said the instructions on how I did the cuts for this card are below the picture!

O.k I made this card for my grand daughters ages 1 and 3 so I did modify the witch cut.
In the original cut she is holding up a mouse so I removed it. I did not want to scare or upset my 3 year grand daughter who loves all living creatures. I wanted you to know that up front I put the little flower in it's place. O.k we will start with the Spider web which is on page 67 in your booklet. I did the blackout cut of the web first in the dark purple. Then I did the standard web cut and it was done at 3 inches.I used Stickles to add the sparkle to the web.  Next I did the Happy Halloween phrase and I cut it at 3 inches also and is on page 34 of your booklet. I cut it first using the shadow option then again in the standard cut and layered it. I then added Fire Fly Stickles on it to make it blend with the Purple Pink and Green theme that I have going on. You will find the witch on page38 of the booklet. She is cut at 4 inches. I did the shadow cut first in Black then cut it at the standard cut in white and then again in layers. I had to do it that way in order to add the flesh color with a copic marker then I cut the layers in pink and added Cotton Candy Stickles to bling it up. When that dried I added Fire Fly stickles to the brim of her hat, boots, and cauldron. I then used a tiny flower to put in her hand and some bling rhinestones for the bubbles because this witch is cooking up happy Halloween wishes:) I finished the card with a Bo Bunny double dot lime green bow. I purchased the ribbon from Erica's store. So that is my project in a nut shell! I hope you enjoyed it and leave me a comment!!!

Card Creating Tuesday With My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to Card Creating Tuesday with My Cricut Craft Room!!!
As you can see Erica has gone to all pink graphics in support of breast cancer awareness!
I am very proud to be part of this team!
The cartridges I used on today's project are Pink Journey, Life's a Beach, and Forever Young.
I chose the Pink Card Option as my project today and I went all pink:)
On my project I used the Pink Journey Cartridge for the wording Wear Pink. I cut it at 1.75 inches and did it in the standard cut and the shadow cut and layered 2 colors of pink and also used Pink Stickles glitter glue.
I used Cricut Cartride Forever Young to cut the sunglasses, Flip Flops and Bikini. I also used Imagine Pattern cartridges Blossom and Bubble Gum stripes for all of the solids and prints in the cuts. The sun glasses are on page 47 of your booklet I used the shadow cut, sun glass 5 cut and the layer cut for the lenses. It says not available on the lens cut in the booklet but is craft room it was available. I cut the glasses at 1.75 inches. The bikini was also cut at 1.75 inches. You will find the bikini on page 61 of your booklet. It is listed as Lingerie but it works for a bikini! The cute plaid print is from the Blossom Imagine cartridge. The flip flops are on page 64 of the Lifes a Beach booklet I cut them at 1.75 in the standard cut and in the shadow cut.

Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craft Room






Welcome to another fantastik
Imagination Monday! I am first going to show you the screen shot of my project in craft room.
I started with a 4 inch frame from the Imagine More Cricut Imagine cartridge. It is the cartridge that came with my machine many moons ago:) The Banners are from the same cartridge but I did go in as you can see on the left of the screen shot and change the colors to match my project. The Banners were cut at .50 inches. I then used 3 birds on Parade for the lettering and it is .50 inches also. I I did a cut and print on the frame then did a second frame adding the text and did print only and cut the frame out by hand. If you don't want to cut the font with the Imagine you don't have to and I love to have that option!!
I then layered the cut frame over the uncut and glued them together
I then pulled out my favorite embellishment "Stickles"I outlined the lettering and the inside of the frame. Next I took my banners and and put Star Dust stickles over the colored banners to brighten them up! My design team sisters will tell you I am addicted to Star Dust Stickles and I am and proud of it!! LOL
After everything dried over night I just layered my card together added my banner border and a pearl on each corner. I had some challenges getting everything to cooperate when I was doing this project so I had to think outside the box a bit on it!! Thank-you for checking out my project. I love comments and if you are a new follower with a blog leave your link and I will return the favor:)

Would you ever guess Wednesday with My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to Would you ever Guess Wednesday with My Cricut Craft Room!!

Well I chose the option to make a box!
So I used Tablescapes Fall and Winter Cartridge and Bags Tags Boxes and More 2 to create both of my Christmas boxes. Both boxes were cut at 8 inches. Now I hate to admit it but it is the first time I have used both of these cartridges so it was a learning process for me :) I used the snow flake napkin ring to embellish the top of the blue box. Now when I say it was a learning process I was serious. I ended up with a few " spare" pieces but both boxes went together easily. Have you ever known anyone that was putting together something and had a few left over screws that they just tossed?? Well being a paper crafter that does not want to waste pretty paper I used the " extra" pieces as embellishments. Shh don't tell the hubby I will never live it down. I promise I will do better next time and be able to give you more detail as to how I did the project. I was so shocked that I had left over pieces I forgot to take notes of the process:)
Thank-you for stopping by my blog and keeping my little secret:)
Happy Crafting and may you not end up with spare parts!!
