fun with cricut artiste!

I made these cute little coffins for party favors for my daughters GS halloween party tomorrow night.  Each has 2 pieces of candy and a GS pencil on top.

If you have the artiste cartridge,  I set the size on 4.  The recommended size is 7.5 but I wanted to get 2-3 out of each  12X12 sheet of paper. 

If you are interested in purchasing the cricut artiste or seeing what else it can do, drop me an email at  Or go to my website at

weekend projects

Here are some project I worked on this weekend from our Halloween packs.  :)


This cut little purse and prymid were made with our Cricut Artiste Collection.  Aren’t they cute?  The embellishments are the Moonlight compliments



These cards were made with paper from the Halloween on the Go Workshop



Layout from our Moonlight kit and compliments




Here is a layout made with the Halloween Party Workshop on the Go.  The black rectangle and black cirles are where the pictures will go.



These are my club November layouts.  This is the Clementine kit.  People think this is too “girly” a kit, so I made a layout for both a girl and boy.  These are typically “western” type paper, but I used September’s Stamp of the Month to make it a “fall” type layout.  The scarecrow is stamped with black staz on and colored with our new alcohol markers.  So what do you think?  Does the boy one look “boyish”?

recent projects and contest!

Hey all, I am holding a contest on my facebook page till Oct 16.  I am challenging my customers to scrapbook “life” instead of an event.  Too often we get in the rut of scrapbooking holidays, birthdays and vacations and they all start to look the same!  We also need to scrapbook ourselves, and scrapbook “life”.  Anyone who posts a project on my facebook page before Oct 16 will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate.  So let’s get creating!

Scrapbooked with some friends the other night, here are some of my projects!

IMG_1377 This is a card I made with Cricut Artiste.  The cartridge cut out the card and I decorated it with paper from the Flirty Paper pack. Below is the inside.  It is a sympathy card for a coworker, and I left the middle empty to write my condolences.


These two layouts are club layouts are made from our Moonlight kit.  The web, bat and spiders in the second layout are cut out of the Artiste cartridge. As you can see in the third picture, the bat opens up to reveal hidden journaling and a hidden picture.  The layout itself is from our new Make it from Your Heart Volume 1.  The embellishments on the top layout are the some of the Moonlight compliments chipboard pieces

This layout was made from our Lucy paper pack from the winter Idea book.  The butterflies are made from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The flowers are stamped from our Love Blooms stamp set.  I then colored the flowers and leaves with our new alcohol markers. I really like coloring with them, but it does take some time to get used to.  I did stamp with staz on black ink first, if you do this, let it dry fully before coloring to help keep the black from bleeding.  It still bled a tiny bit



Here is a close up of two of the flowers



This layout is a convention layout that I finally finished and is from our Clementine pack.  My club will be using that pack in November, so check back for more examples with that kit!



This layout is made from our footloose kit from the winter idea book.  I used the Footloose compliments for the embellishments, and the layout is from Make It From the Heart, vol 1. This was the last vacation my husband and daughter were able to take with his mother before she died.  These were the only pictures they took of the whole vacation, but I felt it important to scrapbook the memory. 


So.. what have you created lately?
