365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#151 and #152 Halloween/Fall Blog Hop here!! Blog Candy Too!


This banner is about 5 feet long it fits perfectly over my NON-working fireplace LOL!


You can win these stamps!! Just leave me a comment on which cartridge you are going to buy next! You do not have to be a follower allthough I do welcome all newcomers!

Hey ladies welcome to our Halloween and Fall Blog Hop!! If you are here from Lorraine's blog you are in the right spot. If you would like to start from the beginning at Stephanie's Blog Always Crafting click HERE.  I created this Halloween banner from cutting scallop squares on black cardstock at 10 inches or so.  I cut the varies pumpkin faces and the Trick or Treat  sign from the Pumpkin Carvings cartridge I cut all of these on 8.5x11 orange cardstock. I used my Gypsy to measure them up correctly. I punched holes on each side of the scallop squares so that I can tie my orange spiderweb ribbon into bows. This banner was about the same size as my fireplace....about 5 feet or so and it was very easy to create!

For my graveyard Halloween card I challenged myself to make a card with a color I don't use that much...gray!  I was inspired by a cemetary at night, with a gray foggy sky. The ghost and two round headstones are from Paper doll Dress Up. The cross headstone is from October 31st. I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen stamped, stamped the tree and stamped the sentiment, and I also did some faux stitching and added a pop dot to the ghost. I also added a border strip from the MS Drippy goo punch.

Lastly, I would like to thank Stephanie for hosting this blog hop and for choosing me to be one of the 11 stops! She was sponsored by scrapadabadoo and we have a grand prize which is a Tim Holtz On The Edge Die, signed by him and a Kaiser Craft Paper Pack called Jades Garden. To be qualiied for the grand prize you MUST leave a comment on all 11 blogs.  For my blog candy give away which is a set of Fiskars/So much Thanks clear Stamp set you must leave me a comment, you do not have to be a follower to win, allthough all newcomer's are welcome! I want to make it fun, leave me a comment and tell me which cartridge you are going to buy next....I'll start....I want to buy the new cartridge called Birthday Bash!! Now for your next stop.....Jess have fun and remeber to leave comments on all blogs to win the grand prize an autographed Tim Holtz die!!
