Hello Scrappers!  This creepy haunted house was cut from the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.  I used a 4-1/4"x5-1/5" card base.  The house was cut from page 36 at 4-1/2".  The ghost measures 1".  I used the Martha Stewart fence punch and also a MS Halloween stamp for the BOO!  Thanks for looking and visiting my blog!!!!  LorraineB

Candy Halloween Card

Hello Scrappers!  I have made several Halloween cards this weekend and I finally found a few minutes to post one of my card projects.  I have used the StampinUp Sweet Centers stamp,  the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch, ribbon and Halloween card stock.  I filled the cups with tic tacs.  YUM YUM!  The inside of the card is a $ stamp from Michael's and colored with my copics.
I purchase my StampinUp products from Scrapngigi from the Cricut Message Board.  Enjoy!

Holiday Memory Book Series #2

Hello Scrappers!  This is video #2 with the next steps to the memory book.  I must first apologize because I have listed the wrong amount of designer paper.  I originally listed 3-12x12" cardstock, which we actually need 6-12x12" cardstock.  I am so sorry if I have inconvenienced anyone.  This head cold has made me loopy.  LOL  So lets get started on the next step!

Holiday Memory Book VIDEO series #1

Hello Scrappers!  This video project is the first of several videos.  I wanted to make this memory book project with you in real time.  I will list all the materials you will need for this book and give you time in between videos to prepare and gather everything needed.  This will be fun and it really is easy to do.  I will not be listing adhesives, scissors ect...  This is what you will need:
  • 3-12x12" white scrap booking paper(card stock will be too heavy)
  • 6-12x12" holiday designer double sided card stock
  • 24" of coordinating ribbon
  • your choice of embellishments

Happy Thanksgiving Card with Matching Envelope-Wild Card Cartridge

Hello Scrappers!  I was flipping through some of my older cartridges, and found a fall card on the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge.  I used some fall colored card stock, and it all came together very quickly.  I hope I have inspired you to dust those older cartridges off, and make some cards!  Thanks for watching and enjoy the video.  Lorraine

Making Candy Corn with George and Basic Shapes

Since none of the cricut cartridges have a candy corn, I decided to design my own. I also have a card I put together using the candy at the end of the video. Thanks for watching and enjoy the video.
