Halloween Projects

I was so thrilled to see that I made top 5 at Fantabulous Cricut  for the first time.  You can see my Disney Family Trip card here.  It also won me a guest design spot at My Sheri Crafts!  This card is one of my all time favorites!

So today I made TWO Cricutless projects.  I LOVE my Cricut, so these challenges are the most difficult for me.

Emma from My Creative Time is holding a Cricutless challenge.  The challenge is to use the colors purple, black, orange and green to make a card.  The other project was supposed to be for the challenge I missed by one day :( but I was so proud of how cute it came out I had to share it!

EAD also has a challenge that goes with these Halloween colors! You can enter this challenge here for a chance to win a $25 gift card.

Here are my two projects:

I used Emma's newest release of stamp sets to make this really cute 3X3 card.  It was so easy to make! I love the border that you can create with this set and the sentiments fit perfectly within the border.  This whole 9th release is my favorite because it has so much for so many different occasions.  Franky came the $1 bin at Michael's.

Here is the other project.  A few months ago I took a class, taught by my BFF Jennifer, on how to make these awesome magical candy wrappers and I really wanted to make a Halloween themed one.

When you pull on the candy bar, a secret little message pops out the bottom! How cute is this project?? I also used Emma's set to make this.  The font is so cool! 

I'm going to try to make a bunch of these for my family for Halloween.  We will see if my work schedule allows that to happen!

Thank you for visiting!
