Dog Bed

This is just a dog bed I made for our Westie. We went to the fabric store to get some stuffing but they were all out so instead we went to Big Lots and bought pillows, at a very low price, and used their stuffing for the bed.

Baby Blanket

Well here is my first try at a blanket, it didn't turn out too bad. Next time I will definitely use a less stretchy material. It pulled through the sewing machine a little weird, but it turned out pretty cute. I love the fabric I found at JoAnn's for a great deal.

Creative Time Animal Challenge

Woohoo, my first 12x12 scrapbook page. I have never made one this size. I decided that for the Creative Time Challenge I would do a page with my dog to keep with the animal theme. I used the paper pups cartridge, Hannah Montana for the K, and opposites attract for the rest on Kenzie, I think it turned out great! And I got to use my new iRock I got this past weekend, it was so easy and added just enough!

MPS Challenge - Pink Imagine-nation

So I decided to go ahead and do a design related to fall instead of Halloween, even though I love Halloween! I used the new cuttlebug embosser that I got at the Cricut Swarm for a little dimension.

MPS Challenge

Here is my entry into the Pink Stamper's challenge for countdown to Karlee. I found this Stamp in the dollar bins at Michaels and thought it was super cute!! Hope you enjoy this Halloween treat bag.

Cricut Swarm!

So yesterday was the Provo Craft Cricut Swarm (don't worry if you couldn't make it this year there is always next year, it sounded like they are planning on doing it annually) Just thought I would show some of the make and takes American Craft did, the loot I picked up at CreativeXpress, and the freebies Provo Craft gave out at the door (including the gypsy they gave everyone!)

Here is a cute idea for a treat box using a 12x12 piece of paper. This was super easy and will make great gifts for Halloween and then Christmas!

SPOOKY! Super cute tag also very easy to make and great for tagging a treat for a Halloween gift.

Exclusive Cuttlebug Embossing folders, Creative Escape and a floral design that looks like a chandelier to me.

I bought this cute pack of Halloween paper at the CreativeXpress store they had on site. CreativeXpress does have a website, which I went to order a cuttlebug from last night because I don't have one, and they have a great deal going on a YourStory bundle for $30. I had to order it with my cuttlebug, I got an extra 10% their already low price!

More loot from CreativeXpress. They had so much stuff at such great prices, I got out for a pretty reasonable amount!

Ah... now to my reason for even going in the first place my new Cricut GYPSY!! Provo Craft literally handed these out like candy. I have wanted one for so long, and now I have one! So enough blogging I had better start playing with it!!

Creative Time Challenge

Creative Time put out a challenge to make a shaped card including the color orange. Well I remembered that I was supposed to include orange just as I was putting the eyes on my blob card. So now I have two quick cricut cards to show.

These were both done using the mini monsters cartridge. And like I said they were quick so they don't have a lot to them.

Cricut Swarm Swap Items

This will be my first Cricut Swarm and I am super excited because it is being hosted by Provo Craft. When I found out that every attendee gets a Gypsy I was in! (I don't have one but have wanted one for a while) So I figure a day of fun and a Gypsy, it's a win win!

So for this Swarm we need to bring items to swap that we have made with our cricut I am having some trouble deciding on what to make. Here are a couple of the treat boxes I have put together. I think I am liking the idea of the Mini monster bag in different colors.
