Batman Halloween

Hi Everyone,

My son is in Kindergarten and his project for the weekend was to decorate a mini pumpkin. Well the first thing he told me when he got home Friday was that he wanted a Batman pumpkin. Now how in the world are we going to decorate this pumpkin to look like Batman??? Thank you Cricut!!!!! Here's what I came up with. Now I know what you are thinking. He didn't decorate it. No, but we are getting another mini pumpkin for him to decorate on his own. This will just be an addition to his own work. I used the Batman cartridge and combined the mask with the treatbox. What do you think???

Have a Great Week!!!

Hand Sanitizer bottles again

Here are more of the hand sanitizer bottles that I have made. These are for a friend of mine. I am lovin the polka dots!!!! Hope you enjoy.

Personalized Pumpkins

I LOVE the way my pumpkins turned out for our home. I wanted a large pumpkin with the letter "E" on it like the ones I have seen at Hobby Lobby. Well I couldn't find one with an "E" on it. Then after pouting for a couple of weeks I realized I could make my own!!!! So here it is. I also made a set of small pumpkins which spell my last name. You can get these at most craft stores. Hope you enjoy. Happy Fall!!!!

Ken's Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for my sweet husband's birthday. It was late of course, but I meant he was going to get a home made card!!! I used one of the new Tim Holtz embossing folders and loved it!!! The sunflower, stem, and leaf stamps are from Heartfelt Creations. They coordinate with the Spellbinders Nestability Blossom Two. Added some jute twine for the fence. Hope you enjoy!!!!

My Pink Stamper Challenge

Here is my creation for the MPS challenge today. I just loved this little hedgehog when I saw him on the Give a Hoot cartridge. I used several punches to make my flower. The sentiment is from Studio G. The challenge was to use the colors pink, green, brown and orange in your creation. Normally, I probably would not have incorporated orange in this but I'm so glad I did. I really like the brightness it adds. Hope you enjoy.

Big Lots Bargains and 2 new cards

So here is the BIG HAUL I got Friday at Big Lots!!! Too much to see everything but you get the general idea. I couldn't believe my luck. And this isn't all because I kept some for a gift and a friend bought several of my duplicates. My boys love to use the cuttlebug and cuttlekids and they will have a blast with the new Disney finds.

Check out my french birthday card. My sister loves French inspired things so I decided to maker her a birthday card reflecting that. Only problem is I don't have the new Paris cart yet. So here is my version. I cut the eiffel tower from Destinations and then just used the cuttlebug and swirls folder. I think it's sooooooooo cute. The poodle is from Create a Critter. I am loving that cart!!!!! The next card is for my DS's Pre-K graduation. The dinosaurs are from Create a Critter also. The poem I found online as a song and change the words around for what I needed. And lastly I will sneak in a pic. of a bag I put a vinyl letter on. Pic is at the top of the post. The store would put one on for $8 but I was so glad I could do it myself instead!!!

Have a Great weekend!!!!

Easter eggs, wall hanging, Mother's Day card

It's been a little while since I last posted pics. of my projects. I have more to come later in the weekend. I'm finally getting my craft room in order so I will try to get pictures of the room posted for you too. The first is a picture of a Mother's Day card for my Mom. She has rented a place at the beach for a month this summer and we are all sooooooooooooo excited to go, so I thought this theme was fitting. Below, the first two pics. are of a wall hanging I did for my craft room. My Mom found the saying on the internet and wanted me to make one for her. The author is unknown. The last picture is of easter eggs I did for my DS's teacher. She did the basket and I did the eggs. The cuttlebug worked fantastic on these!!!! Enjoy.

*** For those looking for a great deal..... I ran in Big Lots on Thursday and hit the jackpot!!! They had tons of cuttlebug folders and dies. Mostly Disney, but I did get a few embossing folders too. All were $2.00 each!!!! Run, Don't Walk to Big Lots!!!!

Snow in Georgia!!!!!

I was so excited that we got snow today. It's the most snow I remember in middle and south Georgia. I even made my first real snowman!!!!! I've made small ones on a car before but this is the first one that was on the ground and round and fat. My kids have also had a blast!!! We will take more pics in the morning. Only in Georgia do we play in the snow at night!! Got to play when you can down here. You never know how long it lasts. Enjoy.

Christmas Ornaments

Here are my christmas ornaments using the Martha Stewart Glitter and Pledge floor polish. I gave these to my girls at work. They loved them. I tried to make them in colors and ribbons that could be used year round. Most of the girls kept them hanging on their desks at work. Will definitely be doing this again next year.

Altered Germex Bottle

Here is a germex bottle that I altered for my DS teacher. She loved it. Hope you enjoy. These are super easy. I used wall pops for these. I love how vinyl just cuts like butter on the cricut.

goody bag toppers

Here are some Halloween goody bag toppers I made. I used the cuttlebug and some cute stamps I found at Michaels. Loved the cuttlebug spiderweb!!!!
