Spooky Dracula Chevron Wreath!

Here's another Spooky Halloween Orange/White Chevron Wreath that is hanging on the door of our garage, again I have had the materials for this since last year but with all my son's doctor's appointments I didn't get around to it. Now that he's on the mend, I'm back to crafting. I sure have missed it, so better late than never! I cut the cute "Dracula" and "Spooky" phrase with the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge - I love, love, love this cartridge for Halloween decor. I am planning on using it to print labels for my friend's kids that are coming to the Halloween party this Saturday, I am planning to cut a sign that says "Kid's Table" and then place their names on the chairs where they will sit during the party, hopefully I can get everything done that day. I am going to have a fun activity for the kids to do while all the parents mingle and play board games, we are going to have them assemble a Chocolate Haunted Village, it should be so fun! This will definitely keep them busy, we are also planning on Skyping with the Missionary that Baptized me and another one that taught me that can't be at the party because they live in another State. It's going to be a blast, can't wait! Anyway, here's the Spooky Halloween Orange/White Chevron Wreath that is hanging on my door! Hope you like it!

You can make cards, cupcake toppers, goodie bags, party hats, party signs.. basically ANYTHING with your Cricut - It has been an AMAZING machine to own, I have loved using my Cricut and have made numerous projects I will be highlighting through this blog, to give you some ideas on what you can do - when you buy your own Cricut!!!


Welcome to my card making fortress! LOL 
Are you ready for this? I made tons of handmade cards as 
gifts for my hubby's parents! So here they are: Ready Set Go..
I really had fun making these I tried several techniques I
learned from some of my Stampin' Up classes, something
that I've been trying to get to is "heat embossing"! Have 
any of you ever tried heat embossing? I finally
tried it out on a really simple card, I think it turned out
great. I do a lot of dry embossing with my big shot which
I absolutely love, but I do have tons of embossing powders
that I've been wanting to play around with for sometime
now. Anyway, I decided to make some cards for different
occasions for my in-laws hopefully they won't have to
buy another card for the whole year, considering they
already have a whole basket full of Birthday & Wedding
Shower cards - they can totally add to their stash!

I have a huge stamp collection that is collecting dust,
I mainly  use my Expression so much that I forget I have
tons of other tools I can use to card make, here are some
pics of a portion of the stamps I have! Anyway,
I brought out what I thought could inspire me in
my card-making tonight - I used the current Stampin'
Up catalog for ideas, put up window browsers of
different examples on my labtop and
just sort of went with it.

I brought out my heat embossing tools, the Versamark
pad and some of my favorite color embossing powders 
and some cards I had to try and inspire the designs 
for these cards.

Of course I used my Cricut Expression for the Turkey &
Butterflies, I can always squeeze in using Cricut
embellishments for all my cards, what a waste it would
be not to take advantage of all the cool cuts you can
make with your Cricut!
Did I mention I'm kinda obsessed with my Cricut?!?
Here are some of the cards I made tonight to give
away to my in-laws! I hope they like them! Heat embossing 
is really fun & easy - all you need is a heat embossing dryer 
you can get one at any craft store, even Stampin' up has their 
own you can buy from the catalog. Then you'll need a 
VERSAMARK pad which acts like a glue - you stamp the 
image onto the versamark and then stamp it where you would  like, pour the embossing powder of your choice on top, cover  all areas of the the stamped image then shake the powder off  back into the bottle - and your ready to heat emboss! The result is a really cool image that is basically raised off the page exactly like dry embossing but a little more focused around the image you stamp - I like dry embossing for larger surfaces.
Trying different powders this one is a shimmer
glitter embossing powder!

I love using thick pop up squares to
make the embellishment pop off the
cards!
So this next "Thank You" card is made by dry embossing
with the Big Shot. I was just experimenting with some
scraps I had and using a new embossing folder I got
from Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago.
This is by far my most favorite embossing folder
that Cuttlebug makes! I tried it on this cute
butterfly card and I absolutely LOVE how it turned
out, I will definitely be using it to make more cards.
I used my Cricut Expression to cut out he butterfly with
the Serenade Cartridge if your wondering.

This next Thanksgiving Card was made with
the "Create-A-Critter"
Cartridge, the phrase
feature for "Gobble", brads & scrap paper.
I had such a fun time piecing together
these little critters!

This next card is pretty intense. It took me a good
45 mins to figure where I wanted to go with this
Easter Card - it's not my favorite for the night.
I had a really nice card in mind that I used as
an example and I like the sample more than my
own card. I just gave it away anyway even
though I wasn't that pleased with it and kind
of a little annoyed at how long it took to make!
Here's the sample I was trying to copy - way
nicer than mine, I wish I could card make like this:
Here's my attempt - blah - the flowers were cut
with
the "Winter Woodland" cartridge the
poinsetta &
the vineline was cut with the
"Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge flower feature.

Pink & Brown Thank You combination
- I like this simple one a lot!
