It's challenge time over at Fantabulous Cricut. This week's challenge is Signs of Fall. Using at least one Cricut cut, create a project with a Fall theme (pumpkins, leaves, harvest, etc.) I had so much fun making this super cute card. I had bought a couple of new products that I wanted to use, and had a great time testing them out. I cut out the 3 pumpkins, using Create A Critter. I stretched one to make it taller and not as wide. You can't see the 3rd pumpkin, I put it on the inside of the card in the bottom right corner. I bought the 12 sets of the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I know that they are to color in digi and stamped images, but I wondered if I could use them to add some edges to my Cricut cuts, like I usually would do with chalk. I used DG3 to color the pumpkin stems, and used GB5 and OR1, and the Blender pen to edge the pumpkins. I love out it turned out and using the blender pen on the very inside really helped the natural color of the cardstock blend with the marker color.
I had also bought the Labels Eight dies by Spellbinders because they were 40% off (I love a good deal). I used them to cut out the scallop base for the pumpkins. I edged it using a orange gelly roll pen. One more new product that I am so in love with is the Peachy Keen face stamp set. OMG....They are so cute and I love that you can put a little face on anything. I think it really makes this card super cute.

Everyone who knows me, knows that purple is my favorite color. So much, that way back, when I bought my first vehicle, that my only two desires was that it was a truck and that it was purple. I ended up buying a purple, 1995 Ford Ranger, which I loved and drove for years (until I traded it in for a "grown up" SUV". Anyway, when I found out that the challenge this week was to create a project using black and purple as the main colors, I got really excited. Don't forget to head on over to Fantabulous Cricut to link up your project, and don't forget you must use at least one Cricut cut.
I had found this wonderful rhinestone "BOO!" sticker at Michaels and knew that I had to use it. I cut the spider and web using my Cricut and my Happy Hauntings cartridge, then just put everything together and dressed it up using some purple and clear rhinestone stickers, the Boo sticker, and a white gelly roll pen (I think the white dots on the spider make her look really scary). I love how this layout turned out, now if Halloween will just get here, I can add the pictures and put it in my 2013 scrapbook.
I got around to doing a layout to highlight the pictures I took of my son in his Halloween outfit, for Halloween 2012. He was so cute in his fireman jacket, so I knew I wanted to create a theme page to really highlight the pictures. I think I use my Create A Critter cartridge more than I have any other, but I couldn't resist the little fire dog and accessories. The title, was cut using Create A Critter as well, but cut the letters using the Disney Mickey Font cartridge. I used my Cuttlebug to add texture. I really like how this page turned out, one of my favs of the year. This was also his birthday theme, which in is October as well.
