A Ghoulin' Good Time

Happy Halloween everyone! Just one week until the big day! I hope you have a great one! Below you will see two cards I created for this wonderful holiday. I used my Cricut Design Studio to cut out the figures on each card. The figures came from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss both background mats. The pumpkin card was embossed with the Forest Branches folder and the mummy card was embossed using the D'vine Swirl folder. I hope you enjoy!

New Cricut Makeover!

I made-over my Cricut Expression. I found some green and pink vinyl at Hobby Lobby and thought I could put a little bling on my E. I use the Storybook cartidge fonts for the letters. I also used the Stetch Your Imagination cartridge for my little bug head and caterpillar. I thought it turned out cute.
I also finally got a bag for my Cricut. I also found it at Hobby Lobby and they actually let me use the 40% off coupon. What a deal right?! I was able to use it last weekend to transport my E to a Camp Scrap. I am loving it so far!!

My New Disney Paper Dolls!

My husband and I are huge Disney fans! Walt Disney World has been a big part of our lives and our relationship. In 2003 we took our first trip there and have been back every year since. He proposed to me in 2005 while riding the Dumbo Ride in Fantasyland and in June 2008 we were married at Sea Breeze Pointe behind Epcot Center. I alway try to tie Disney into everything, so of course I made two Mouseketeers out of my new Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I had so much fun creating these two. I hope you enjoy!

I Took the GYSPY Plunge!!!

I finally did it! I took the plunge! I ordered the Gypsy on HSN and also was able to use a coupon. Thanks everyone for the heads up on the coupon. It ended up costing me just $267.71. Wow! I am also so excited to get the new cartridge, Destinations. Now I am glad my husband advised me to wait a little longer to get it. Now I just have to wait until November for delivery, but it is worth it. HURRAY!
