Cricut Enjoy the Seasons Fall Birthday Card

Today I made a card using just my Cricut Imagine machine and the Enjoy the Seasons cartridge. One of my good friends is having a birthday and I wanted to make her something Fall themed. I used brown cardstock for the card base and printed the rest of the paper with the Imagine. I cut the adorable squirrel and the leaves using the layer feature and finished off with a leaf brad and glitter glue. I rounded the corners and inked the edges of the paper.

I popped everything up using foam tape.

I decorated the inside with more layers and leaves and acorns. I used My Pink Stamper stamps for the inside sentiments. I enjoyed making this card and really should use my Imagine more. I have so many cartridges that I haven't even used yet. My goal is definitely to start using all my stuff!!

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Bitten By The Bug 2 "Fall Leaves are Falling"
Die Cuttin Diva's "Use Brown"
Little Scrap Pieces "Fun Friday Linky Party"

Halloween Chic & Scary Witch

I made this Halloween card using the Cricut Chic & Scary cartridge. I have been trying the pedestal card fold and like the way it turned out. I used purple cardstock and paper from DCWV "The Midnight Spell" stack. The stamps are from My Pink Stamper's "Spooky Puns".
I popped the witch and sentiment up with foam tape. I found the sparkly purple ribbon in the Fall craft section at Walmart for a dollar.  I added the shiny black buttons for that finishing touch. The papers look so much much better in person. I am so happy to be visiting blogs and crafting again. So much talent out there and I just love it! I am hoping to have time to do Halloween goody bags for the neighbors and carpool kids and to work on some Fall stuff too.

I am going to enter this in the following challenges:
Exploring Cricut challenge to use at least 1 button, brad or jewel
Craftin Desert Diva's "Anything with a sentiment"

Yellow Submarine Card/ Birthday Celebration

Using Cricut Life's A Beach and other cartridges I made a 5"x7" Yellow Submarine card for my
son's 11th birthday. It was a great day with family & friends swimming, BBQing, cupcakes and presents. I had to cut many periscopes to mimic the Beatles Yellow Submarine and I paper pieced
the layers to get the different colors. I used the Animal Kingdom cartridge for the dog and cat heads.
I custom decorated them to look like our cat Jack and dog Minnie. I used Paper Dolls for the boy head and hair and Peachy Keen face stamps to look like my little guy (I guess not so little anymore!) and Groovy Times for the rainbow. I would have done more to the card if I wasn't in such a hurry with all the party preparations.

I used one of those awesome action wobbles I bought from The Scrapbooking Queen.
 They are the coolest! 

I added another rainbow and music notes to the inside of the card.
I found this awesome Yellow Submarine ice cube tray and made some submarine candies!

I then used them to decorate my famous chocolate-chocolate-chip cupcakes that my friends and family love and ask for all the time. I used the rainbow sour tape for the rainbow. I've seen pics all over pinterest with the rainbow cupcakes and thought that it would add just the right touch.
I decorated the house with rainbow streamers and these Beatle's cards that I used for the invitations. as well as more Yellow Submarine cuts. It was a fun day and my son was very happy!
I will be entering my card into the "Anything Goes" challenge on the Action Wobble website.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!
