November ATC Card for Swap

One of my favorite things about fall is to see how the leaves change colors to these rich orange, maroon/brown and golden shades.  Mother nature in all its glory!

Inspired, this is what I came up with!

I cut the leaves using my Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge.  Really like the shapes of the leaves.  I found this great sentiment from Inkandinkado and added glitter on the leave and sentiment.  I also stamp one of the leaves with another Inkandinkado stamp; really like how that came out.  Hope the ladies enjoy them as much I had FUN making them.

Fall is wrapping up and winter is upon us.  Now if only I can get moving on xmas cards!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep warm!

BBTB2 Give Thanks Challenge Inspired

I often find myself enjoying the creative postings found in Bitten By the Bug 2 blog; gives me inspirations on how to use the many many many Cricut cuts available.  I decided to participate in last week Give Thanks Challenge to make a few cards.

This is what I came up with for the challenge:

We were encourage to use the "Give Thanks" from the Thanksgiving Cricut cartridge or.any "Give Thanks" sentiment.  Really like this Thanksgiving cartridge.  I hand cut the banner shape card and used an EK success border punch for the scallop edge.  I then used leftover scraps to cut these cute leaves from Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge for the really cool leaves.

I really like how this came out, so I did another one that I needed.

Added some brads for the banner and buttons to the leaves, FUN!!!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is in a few days! So much to do and so very little time to do it all! 

Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving week!

Thanksgiving Invites / You're Invited

We are hosting Thanksgiving this year again, and we are so looking forward to it! We really enjoy Thanksgiving and are really inspired by the spirit of the day, with all its trimmings!  We got the 9lb turkey breast tucked in the freezer and a list of all the items that we will be needing.  I got a slightly early start on this year's invites and pretty happy with how they turned out!

Here is a look at the inside where I printed out the deets :)

This year I made three invites; and I couldn't have done it without Cricut Design studio.  Totally had FUN layering and using the different pattern papers with those rich fall colors. 

I got my hands on a Thanksgiving winter collection Cricut cartridge and what a buy!  it had all that I needed!  Really enjoyed using the different cuts.  From the maple leave with swirls to the turkey to even the sentiment; it all worked nicely together.  I also used Design Studio to weld the elements together to this shape card from Christmas Cards winter collection Cricut cartridge. 

This weekend we will hustle to get the rest of the items and come Thanksgiving Day we will be up and going early with a our game face on! Good times!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oct Month Scrapbook Calendar Page

A bit late in posting the calendar layout created for the month of October.  This is my hubby and I celebrating and doing the fancy dinner thing ;)... a very special moment shared.

Like the vibrant colors here along with the butterfly motifs and rub-ons.  I added some grey gems to add  a bit of fanciness to it.  I also used one of my cuttlebug edge folders for an added sentiment.
