Cardz Tv Halloween Challenge

Today I watched Mary's Challenge on Cardz TV.  The challenge was to use a sketch.  There was a choice of two sketches.  Now I have to say this is not a favorite card of mine, but I don't usually work with sketches and I found that this came together very quickly.  I had just finished making a bunch of halloween boxes for my family and friends so I had a bunch of halloween scraps.  I used Create a Critter 2 for the bat cut and then I dug out a cuttlebug die I had for the spider, bat, pumpkin, ghost and the Boo!
It was great using scraps, and the sketch.

Snowman Gift Tag

Here's another quick and easy gift tag I made for Christmas.  The snowman and the tag are cut from Christmas Kitsch, I did use the slice feature to make the strip at the bottom and cut it out of pattern paper.

This gift tag started as a card, I just happened to make it the wrong size, but I really like it as a gift tag and I know the person who will be receiving it this year.
The cut comes from Christ Kitsch.

Santa Christmas Card

This past weekend I wasn't feeling very well.  I got a cold that has been going around.  Saturday evening I decided to at least do one or two Christmas Crafts.  I pulled out the Christmas Kitsch Cartridge and made one of the cards on it.  The card was cut at 5.5 inches.

Crop and Create Cornwall 2016

This year I attended the Crop and Create in Cornwall again.  I have to say it was a blast.  I was able to complete 9 scrapbook pages.  Catherine and here gang are so great, there was lots of great food and prizes.  Once again the stores were great, and so were the friendships formed.

Cricut Halloween Treat Boxes

Well its been a long time since I have posted.  I have been Scrapbooking a friends wedding pictures and have not wanted to post anything in case she sees the pictures.  I am almost done the album and will ge giving it to her shortly so I will post the pictures then.

This morning I started making my Halloween boxes for my family at home, my work family, my neighbours and my grandchildren.  I have 23 to make in total so I was planning on using four of my Cricuts all at once to make things go faster.  The box I selected was from Ana's Seasonal Soirees.
I love the box but I am very disappointed that the cartridge does not have the score lines on it.  To use the score lines you have to use Design Space.  My plan was to use my expression with the cartridge, my Imagine with my gypsy and my expression 2 with CCR.  In the end I had to cut all the boxes with my explore, it would have been so easy for them to put the score lines on the f1 feature key.
