Lots of Cricut cuts and color on this layout.

-Happy Halloween is from Create a Critter 2
-Pumpkins are from Holiday Cakes

Celebrate - Breast Cancer Awareness

Our BBTB2 Cricut designers blog is celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness month by making projects and cards featuring PINK and WOMEN.   I found this svg file that someone shared and changed it up a bit.  I love the simplicity and think it's perfect to send out to some friends in memory of how strong they have been in fighting this disease.   I'll make a few more and get them out ASAP.   They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this one qualifies.

We invite you to link up your PINK / WOMEN project or card to our blog and enjoy our creations at BBTB2.  

Remember to get your mammogram, I have my appointment at the end of the month!

Cricut BBTB2 - BEWARE of Halloween

Yes - BEWARE - it's time to eat candy, lots of candy.   It's been out for over a month now.  As of this writing, I haven't eaten any of it.   Can't say that will happen once my husband goes to the store and sees his favorites - Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. 

This is a little bit of a scary card to share this week.  I love the Frankenstein cut and I decided to go with dark colors.  I'll send it to an adult so that I don't scare any little ones.

Frankenstein is from the Cricut Autumn Celebrations cartridge.  The web is from Monster Bash and Stickled.  The spider is from Designers Calendar.  I just added a basic bracket background twice and pop dotted Frankie and it was done.

Take a look at our projects at  BBTB2 and  enjoy our creative Halloween projects.  I thank our hostess for the week, Melanie.

Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

Sometimes I am a little challenged when working with Design Space files.  I could not get a shared file to work on my DS.  So I made my  own.  I downloaded a font from that matched the examples and then used my subscription to make the half pumpkin.  I used the slice feature for the first time and this was also the first time getting a font.   I may not be learning it fast, but I'm getting there.   This Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch shirt is for my granddaughter.  The lettering is Gold Vinyl and turned out so cute - she can wear it for October and November.  I'm sure she will love it, I do!
