Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge: Mini Book

Here is a mini book that I designed on my Gypsy using various cartridges. I used circles and used my trimmer to cut the edge off and cut a "J" from the Wild Card cartridge into it for the cover. There are scalloped circles, one that i cut the edge off for a straight edge, one that I left intact, circles layered on circles, there are large rectangle pages that open out scalloped rectangles, various frames on some of the pages, and two envelopes with inserts. All shapes were cut from Cricut cartridges. I am too tired to list them all but George Basic Shapes, Storybook, Plantin, and Wild Card were among them.

Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge: October

This is my submission for the October Monthly Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog. The challenge was to make a Halloween themed home decor project. The prize is $150 to spend on!! Man, I could really have fun with that!! Wish me luck! :)

Mini Monsters (ghost, spider & web, and tombstones))


Mail Organizer

This was a fun one, and definitely outside of the box that I normally create in! :) I painted it and Mod Podged the flat background papers, then hand rolled all of the paper for the front and hot glued them down. After it cooled I sealed them with a few coats of Mod Padge. I cut the little banners with my precious Cricut (Love!!)...I am super happy with how it turned out! :)


Trying to add sewing to my crafty bag of tricks...

So, sewing, not as easy as it looks! lol I have been trying to teach myself to sew. I even bought a fancy new sewing machine on that night of nights where we can sit in our pj's and watch all the crafty goodness on HSN for a whole day!!! lol It is like a holiday for! are a few of the small projects I have made while trying to learn about working with fabric and sewing! :)
