Snow Angel

I am so excited! I got a Gypsy! I am still learning how to use it, but I'm super excited! This layout was simple, but took me a really long time because I had to learn how to use my new toy. The layering sizes were throwing me off, but luckily several ladies have posted videos on how to do it - so I watched them and horray. I used basic grey paper and the Winter Frolic cartridge. The snowflakes are from the free Christmas cartridge that was included when you buy a gypsy. I outlined it all in stickle. I have so many layouts to catch up on let me tell you. I feel so overwhelmed. Everytime I bring out my stuff to scrap, Ashley is in it or if I baby gate her away from it she just screams. Not a lot of creative thought can happen with that in the background. In fact, just as I speak she screaming. She's sick, so I'm sure that's mostly why. I'll just do what I can, when I can ;).

Snow much fun Scrapbooking....hee ;)

This past Saturday I took a Close to My Heart Scrapbook class. I had a blast and learned some pretty neat stamping tips. I don't really stamp on my it was pretty cool to try something new. Plus I took home the layouts and combined the best of stamping with my cricut. You can have the best of both worlds ;).

Close To My Heart's workshop came with all of the paper, the stamp set, the pointsettas and all of the brads. It was really a great deal. The titles were cut with the cricut using the cartridge Winter Woodland. The fireplace, presents and stockings were cut with the cricut using the cartridge Christmas Cheer.

All of the cards except my Snowman creation were also included in the class and were all Close to my Heart and designed by Close to my Heart.

 Matthew's Layout - Still need to journal. 
 Presents = Christmas Cheer   Cool Yule = Winterwoodland

 Ashley's layout - made another set out of the leftover paper - that's why one page is brown/one red.

 The garland was from Michaels - the fireplace was cute from Christmas Cheer.
 I love the flowers! They had brads already in them. We stamped Wish and put a drop of the Glossy for little droplets.

 My favorite card from the group
 I designed some snowman cards.
 The stamp set we used and got with the class.
Mistletoe was the workshop we did. This is what Close to my heart gave as it's example.

Fall Festival Signs

These were the signs I made for the fall festival. At least most of them. I think I did about 8-10 signs total. I was also really sick with a bad cold. I was so tired! I went through an entire glue bottle too. Crazy! I think they looked nice at the festival, the wind was just not cooperating though. I think next year I need to mount them on heavy card board.

Monster Treat Boxes

I used the Monster cartridge for these. I made a total of 42 with my mom! A set for her class and Matt's class. I also made cake pops for the first time. I made pumpkins. At first they were going to have faces on them but the food pens wouldn't write on the chocolate. So I gave up. They were more Fall like anyway instead of Halloween.
