Create a Critter 2 cartridge

I truly love the Create a Critter 2 cartridge!!  I came across this super spooky owl and thought it would be perfect to make some goodie bags for my students.  The fence was made with a Martha Stewart punch, used a circle punch for the moon, and the Trick or Treat stamp is from a Stampin' up set.  Now that Sandy the Hurricane has passed through Maryland it looks like we are back to school and our character stroll and fall party are back on track!!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!!!!

Bridal Shower Banner

This is the bridal shower banner that I made to go along with the favors.  I used the Pretty Pennants cartridge (which I really love but was a little disappointed that it didn't pre-cut the holes on the banner panels)  I used the Storybook cartridge for the words and welded them on the Gypsy, and then I used the Hannah Montana cartridge for the butterflies.  I used the "flip" button for the butterfly image on the ends.  Spellbinder die cuts were used (Lacey circles and circles) to add some dimension and added Stickles (Diamond) to give it some bling!!! I punched the holes in the banner panels and then added some black ribbon.  I really loved how this project turned out!!!  Well it is now off to hit some of those Columbus Day sales at Jo Ann Fabrics and Michael's!!!!

Bridal Shower Favors

I had a great time making these bridal shower favors.  When the bride disclosed what the colors were for her wedding, I just couldn't imagine the combination in my head.  But I think the color selections were actually stunning!  The wedding was elegant and beautiful.  Here is what I came up with for the bridal shower we gave her at school.  I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge to cut out the little bags (cut at 4 inches) then I embossed them with the Cuttle bug using the Swirls folder.  The Hannah Montana cartridge has some super cute butterflies (cut at 1 1/4 inches using the multi-cut feature)  Added some bling using the I-Rock and used a circle, scallop punch, stamp from My Creative Time and then a pop-dot to give it some dimension.  I purchased the ribbon from Michaels and the pre-cut tulle circles are from Wilton which I found those at Walmart for only $2.00 (what a bargain)
