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.

#130-131 Friday the 13th Blog Hop

Thank you to ELSA CRICUT LVR for making this amazing blinky!!

Welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's Friday the 13th Blog Hop hosted by Sandra! This is a fun, cute and spooky hop where we will be featuring the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cart. We are so sorry that this is up way late because of problems all day posting with Blogger, and we are aware of some missing links in the hop so be sure to keep checking back when you can!

For this week's challenge we are asking you to use the HAPPY HAUNTINGS cartridge and the cut choice this week is the FRIDAY THE 13th phrase on Page 54! You can create anything you want and for an extra challenge try to challenge yourself to create something different from last week's project. If you do not own this cart feel free to use any similar cut from any cartridge, you have one week to enter the challenge. 

For my first project I made a layout just for today! I have to admit I don't think I've ever took any pictures on such a spooky day! I stamped the sentiment on this Tim Holtz tag with Fired Brick Distress ink and inked it up I think it looks bloody! I also punched some borders with my MS Drippy Goo Punch. I made a little Jason doll with my Gypsy and the hockey mask I made using the Blackletter "Free" Gypsy cart and got the circles from Plantin Schoolbook. The body, gloves, ax, clothes and shoes are all from Everyday Paper Dolls. I also added some blood to the ax and used my chalks to give his clothes a dirty look. I embossed the photo mat with my woodgrain embossing folder and inked it up and added some buttons. Isn't this paper so perfect for this theme!! Luckily I found it hidden in my stash of papers and it's from Rusty Pickle. The phrase is from Happy Hauntings and I added pop dots underneath

Here's a close up  of my masterpiece LOL!
Now onto my 2nd project which is a mini album made out of coffee filters!!  My 2nd cut choice from the Happy Hauntings cart was the large pumpkin with a curly vine. All papers and embellishments are from K & Company.

The title says "Aidan's 1st Pumpkin Carving" and is filled with the "extra" pics that are leftover from my scrapbook layouts, a good way to use more pictures instead of just having them sit in a box. I used drippy goo punch for the green slime, used my branch punch around the title and embossed the pumpkin. The letter's are from Tim Holtz Typset die. I also added some stickles to the pumpkin vine and added several pieces of ribbon.

Page 2 and 3 I punched each photo mat with the cracked branch punch from Martha Stewart and also added a pumpkin border.

Page 4 and 5 I stamped all faces with Peachy Keen stamps which I used Pumpkin Faces, and Pumkin Face Assortment and Monster Faces. Yes that picture is of me and my son when he was only a 1 year old!

Page 6 and 7 I also embossed all large pumpkins with my woodgrain embossing folder in my Cuttlebug. Isn't he cute! He was so little LOL! The little owl was a piece of patterend paper that I cut out.

Page 8 and 9 here's our final pumpkins...can you guess which one was mine? I made the skull pumpkin and my hubby made the ugly man face haha! I also carved my son's little baby pumpkin!

Back cover more green slime and I also stamped both sides of all of the pumpkin tags. Here's a little pumpkin monster that I also cut from patterned paper.

I cut all tags from Sweet Treat, and all pumpkins from Create A Critter.

On this side I wrote cute pumkin poems on all of them which I found online, and did my journaling on one of them.
