Happy Howl-oween!

I have a fun card to share with you today...for the new challenge over at CARDZTV!  We had the option of using sketch 4 or 5, and making a Halloween card. 
You can find Mary's sketches HERE.
I used sketch 5 for my Halloween card....I also used:

The stamp I used actually says Happy Owl-oween....but since I wasn't using an Owl, I simply stamped the Happy...then the H again if front of the Owl-oween!!!
 I love being able to make even more sentiments with my CardzTV stamp sets!!

The Monsters, her bow, moon, tree and bats were all cut out with my Cricut.
I also used some NUVO Crystal Drops on my card, and a bit of faux stitching, but it is hard to see on my picture.
Hope you will join our challenge this week! It was lots of fun!

Ribbon Tic TacHolder Box

Good evening!
This week for THE CUTTING CAFE we are doing Cancer awareness projects....I picked the: RIBBON TIC TAC HOLDER BOX.

I just love this glitter paper that I purchased from THE CUTTING CAFE SHOP, where you can find all kinds of crafty goodies....papers, ribbon, clear stamps, embellishments, white gel really want to check it out, if you have never been to the online store!!

I couldn't find the white and pink Tic Tacs at the store I went to - so I will have to check somewhere else so I can put them in the box....but I am really excited that I thought to use that glitter really shines,  and it cut out on my Cricut fantastic!! I used the custom dial and turned it to glitter card stock...easy peasy!!
I hope you will stop by THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG tomorrow and see what the rest of the DT have in store to share with you!

Halloween Milk Carton.....

This week for The Cutting Cafe Inspiration, we were asked to use one of two Halloween Files....either the Halloween Treat Cup Cards or The Halloween -Fall Milk Cartons-(there are several different milk cartons included in this file, I used the Ghost!)

I haven't put the candy in it yet-but isn't this adorable?!!
I had some Halloween paper scraps, and cut out the little characters and the Boo Crew sign-added some pompom ribbon, some google eyes, ribbon, and a rub-on for the sentiment!
Easy Peasy! I think my grandson will love taking this to his teacher filled with candies!
Hope you will stop by THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG to check out the rest of the dt makes for their inspiration, on Oct. won't be sorry you did!

Saturday Paper A La Mode....

Happy Saturday everyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous week!
This week the challenge over at 
is anything goes.....and  I had a lot of fun making this project!! We are sponsored this week by
I used the digi stamp Nature Fairy and printed her out and then cut her out and added some Wink of Stella to her...although you really can't tell now.
(In the digi, she actually has a little butterfly in her hand-somehow I lost that little piece and now my printer is out of ink!) 
So, no little butterfly for now-after I get ink I can always add it!

 I also cut out a moon and some stars on my cricut to add to my little jar as well. 
I found this idea on Pinterest-and the first time I tried it, I painted the jars.....that did not work so well!! This time I used watered down Elmers glue and tissue paper.
 I added some paint to the lid but then ended up covering it up! I added lace, ribbons, beads,  and cut outs, as well as a few star cut outs from the glittery paper as well, ( you can find the glitter paper at THE CUTTING CAFE  SHOP) and then I embellished them with some half pearls, and added a battery light!
I think my granddaughter will really like it!

Here is what it looks like with the lights off....

Thanks for stopping by!

Let's write a letter.....

Hello! It's that time again for THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG inspiration!

This week we were asked to use the new set from THE CUTTING CAFE called
We just don't write letters like we used everyone just texts....but it is fun to get a nice letter in the mailbox! So, this set is all geared up to help you with that!

It has many options for your papers....and the inside has fun little pockets to hold  your papers and envelopes, and even a pen holder!
I added a couple little strips of some matching paper and flowers on the pockets for added depth.

And I love this little folded box keeps everything together, all wrapped up in a nice little set!
I added a little strip of light colored paper under my bow to make it pop!

This set even comes with a page of suggestions/ideas for how to start and end your letter.... so even if you haven't wrote a letter in a long time, it will now be easy peasy!

Hope you hop on over to THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG on 9/21 to check out all the other great ideas for your sets, and also for more this awesome new set offers!!
