Nutty for Fall Pumpkin treat bags

Click here to shop!
Hello Crafty friends! Today I have a project to share that I made for my kids! It is progress report time and they have both done a great job so I thought what better way to treat them then with some candy....and they LOVE candy! (I wonder who they get that from, hee hee) I used a new file at Too Cute By Jessica called 
Nutty For Fall! It is just the cutest!!

Here is my project! I used my Cricut Artiste for the treat bag, the grass and label shape. I've seen this cut decorated as a pumpkin on Pinterest. I added the stem and the leaves from my Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.

This little guy with the glasses is just too cute. I made him for my son. I ran the top of the acorn through my Cuttlebug. I stamped the sentiment from the Craftin Desert Diva's Hey Pumpkin stamp set. I added the orange enamel dots.

I doodled his eyes, eyebrows and cheeks and added a touch of pink chalk on the ears and cheek. He is so cute!

For the girl I added a ribbon and doodled the eyelashes as well. I added orange bling to the label.

She is super adorable!

Cricut Imagine- Fall Hedgehog Birthday Card

Hello Everyone! Today I am a Guest Designer for "Die Cuttin Diva's" one of my favorite challenge blogs! The theme for this week's challenge is "Fall Is Here" and I'd almost believe it were true if it had not been 97 degrees yesterday here in SoCal! A least the mornings feel like Fall.

Today I have a card to share with you that I made using my Cricut Imagine. The cardbase is from DCWV and the rest of the papers I printed with my Enjoy the Season's cartridge. 

This little hedgehog is one of my favorite cuts. I cut the top note shaped layers using the stock images on the Imagine. I glittered the boots, acorns, and leaves with my Wink of Stella pen.

The sentiment is from the Craftin Desert Diva's stamp set "Simply Said" which you can find HERE. I have a few friends with Fall birthdays so this card will be perfect. I finally added some tiny buttons and twine. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Please make sure you check out the other fabulous DT projects at Die Cuttin Divas challenge blog and join in on the fun!

Wonderfully Wicked but cute Kitty

Hello everyone! I have another project I made with the adorable TCBJ files! I have been trying to keep cool in this heatwave but it has been tough! It was 109 degrees yesterday and today should be about 107! Yikes this is the hottest it has been all summer and my AC has been running non-stop. It should cool down to the 90's after Wednesday... So, I have been thinking Halloween is coming up and I wanted to get started on some projects. Here is a card I made using the adorable TCBJ  Wonderfully Wicked file .

I used this new round, pop up card for my cardbase. I thought to myself, "Wouldn't that make an awesome moon?" And it does!! The papers are all from various DCWV Halloween stacks that I've had a while.

Here is how the card stands up! And it does fold down to fit in an envelope nicely too. I just love this sweet kitty face!

I hope you liked my card and are staying cool wherever you all live!

Pumpkin Pals Just for You

Hello crafty friends! Boy, do I have some exciting news! I am now on the Too Cute By Jessica Design Team, yay! Jessica has the cutest SVG's ever! I am going to have so much fun with her files!! You can be sure that I will be creating lots of cuteness in the months to come :) 

 I have been trying to get ready for fall but the weather is so dang HOT that it still feels like summer!! I even decorated my blog to try and get into the Fall mode and anticipate Halloween. Hopefully it will start to cool down soon. 

Today I have a card I made with the TCBJ Pumpkin Pals and you can find that file HERE . 

I used paper from the DCWV Fall paper stack and Nana's Nursery. This file was so easy to put together. I love how each colored cut stays together in it's own group when I import it into my cutting software.

I had fun doodling the little face. The sentiment is from Craftin' Desert Diva's Stamps "Simply Said".

Hope you liked my card! I also have a date for you to save! This is going to be so much fun with lots of great prizes! Check it out and be sure to sign up!!

Wild Card 2 Happy Sunshine Card

 Hello my crafty friends! It's been a very busy week with Back To School Nights, my hubbie's car breaking down, and family visiting. I got to visit with my Mom, Sis, and Niece which was nice. The broken car bit not so nice! But I did get some organizing done in my craft room! I also spent hours last night on the computer organizing my SVG's. How do you all do it? I'd like to hear your ideas!! I wasn't sure how to go about it but then I thought of Pinterest. Boy, have I accumulated a lot of SVG's! I find it's hard to keep up with what I have because they are all in files with random names from different shops and hops. So, I just posted pics of all the ones I own in files by maker on my Pinterest. Now all I have to do is browse my Pinterest to get ideas of what I want to make with the files I own!  Yay!

The weather here in SoCal has been HOT HOT HOT!!! I've been trying to think of Fall but I find myself wishing I could jump into the pool we had at our last house. No pool here so I'll just craft about it instead, lol! 

Today's card is made with my Cricut Wild Card 2 Cartridge. My bloggy friend Anita at Scrappy Happy Mommy has been posting a bunch of videos and she inspired me to take a look at this cartridge that I have barely used. Also I got to play with my awesome stamps from Craftin Desert Diva's, "Gotta Wear Shades" and "Summer Lovin' ".  These were just perfect! 

So I fell in love with this card and I've already started making a couple more! I cut it out at 5.5". The matching envelope is so fun and I just love the sun with my Peachy Keen Princess Face stamp. The papers are from DCWV Summer and Fun in the Sun stacks.

I love the shape of this cut and how it opens up.

This little bear is the cutest ever! I added my Wink of Stella over the glasses for some shimmer and added a rhinestone to the cup for some bling! Isn't she just too cute! I am having so much fun with my stamping and coloring. I feel like I did as a kid with my gigantic box of Crayola crayons and my big stack of coloring books.

So this is what happens when I'm having too much fun in my craftroom.....
I get my furbabies wanting some of my attention, lol!


I hope you enjoyed my project for today and I wish you a most fabulous day! I will participate in the following challenges:
