DT Post by Marlene - Brewing up some fun

Hello Everyone!
Marlene here from ScrappinCookie to wish you all a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I want to start off by sending everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy in the East Coast my Thoughts and Best Wishes. I hope everyone is safe and doing well. My Family and I are doing well, we only had some really strong winds and rainfall although being only 100 miles from where Hurricane Sandy made landfall.
I'm here to share with you all my LAST Halloween Shaped Card - BREWING UP SOME FUN!

The Cauldron was cut from the Cricut Create A Critter2 Cartridge at 5.5". Its actually the reason why I purchased the cartridge. As soon as I saw the cauldron I knew it would be perfect for the "Brewing up some fun" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Ghostly Greetings" Stamp Set.

I added some of My Craft Spot's "Candied Orange" Crinkle Ribbon around the cauldron and tied a double-loop bow. Before adding the senitment strip, I added some "Lilac" Trendy Twine - available HERE at My Craft Spot - and a mulberry rose dyed black.

To the inside of the cauldron, I stamped the "Spooky Little Greeting..." Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Best Witches" Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed my last Halloween project for 2012.

DT post by Kate - Feel better soon!

Hello crafters!  I'm Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm delighted to be sharing my card with you today.

Unfortunately, a friend of mine was recently quite ill so I made this card to brighten her day.  I used g.c.d. studios papers and inked everything with some Tim Holtz Tattered Rose distress ink, adding some faux stitching with a white Gelly Roll pen.  The Bandaid was cut from Indie Art and the border was cut with a Fiskars punch.

The little sentiment is from the My Craft Spot Tiny Tags stamp set and I used the My Craft Spot Tiny Tags metal dies for the tag layers.  I finished things off with some Cherry Divine baker's twine from My Craft Spot and a couple of sweet little buttons from Calico Cottage Crafts.

I used an Action Wobble to attach the Bandaid to the card!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!

DT post by Marlene - Halloween Lollipop treat holders

Hi Everyone,
Marlene here from ScrappinCookie!
I'm so happy to be sharing with you some Halloween Lollipop Treat Holders I've created.

Halloween is only 4 days away, I've been trying to get an early start at Halloween Treats for my boy's classmates. I've been seeing several Lollipop Holders in galleries and blogs and think these are a perfect Halloween Treat.

I don't own any Lollipop Treat dies, so using Cricut Craft Room I designed my own Lollipop Treat Holder - available at my blog ScrappinCookie - to coordinate with the My Craft Spot "Tiny Doilies" Metal Dies.

These are so easy to create since you can cut out several of the holders at a time. I then cut the "Scalloped Circle", "Lacey Circle" and "Large Circle" from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Doiles" Metal Dies using my Cuttlebug Machine.

The "Large Circle" was then stamped with the Halloween Sentiments from the My Craft Spot "Stampin Around Fall" Stamp Set. The "Scalloped Circle" Topper was then adhered to the Lollipop Holder.

I used some "Black" Trendy Twine - available HERE at My Craft Spot - to hold a Blow-Pop Lollipop inside. To keep it all closed, I added a small button and tied a simple bow.

I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy Lollipop Treat Holders.

Don't forget there is still time to play along this week's LITTLE MONSTER challenge, there's still time!! You have until Monday, October 29th 11:59PM MST to enter for your chance to win this week's prize!

Birthday hat shape cards!

Hello, my crafty friends!  I made this fun shape card a while back for the Cricut Magazine (Aug/Sep 2012 issue of the Cricut Cards Idea Book) and thought today would be a great day to share it with you.  :)

I cut 2 shadow pieces at 5.5 inches to form the card base from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  Then I cut all of the fun layers and adhered them to the top of the card.

The fun sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I hand cut the tag, added a bit of faux stitching and attached it to the card with twine and a button.

I ran a line of adhesive (pink atg gun) and then gathered the Scarlet Red crinkle ribbon, pressing it into the adhesive as I went.

 Here is a smaller, but similar version of the same card:

I can't remember what size I cut the smaller card out at.  Sorry!

This sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set.

Happy crafting!
