BBTB2: Cricut - Trick and Treats for Halloween

What happens when I don't take my time and think things through?  Well, I make stupid mistakes.  In this case, no big deal, just creative choices.   I have two ironing mistakes on my pillow for Halloween.  Can you find them?  I just decided the end result was good enough, and since it was for myself, I didn't try to correct my mistakes.   I took three images and put them together to form this Halloween pillow.  The witch looks blue on my computer screen, however, it is purple in real life.  I have never had Halloween pillows before, but with a rust colored leather couch, the setting was perfect.  Now I need to make a Thanksgiving themed pillow, perhaps on the back of this pillow casing.

I am hosting at Bitten by the Bug2 these next two weeks, and the theme will be to use a Cricut cut Word that pertains to Fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving.  I hope there will be a lot of entries as there are a lot of choices from the Cricut Library and cartridges.  Our themes now go for two weeks and you can use your blog, Pinterest, Instagram or other accounts to link up your entry.  Happy Fall Y'All!

Cartridges Used:

Trick or Treat: Marketing Scenes (never heard of this cartridge before today)
Witch with Gate: Autumn Celebrations
Cat:  Marketing Scenes

BBTB2: Cricut - Tea Time Terrarium

I have a guest designer for my BBTB2 post this week.  My granddaughter!   She was invited to her great-aunt's house for the weekend.  Her aunt loves a good tea party and I am sure that was part of the weekend plans.  So my 6 year old granddaughter wanted to make something as a gift that involved tea parties.  She chose the designs and colors, and we both cut them out on the Explore.  Once the 3 cuts were taped back to back on skewers, they were put into the terrarium.  The terrarium has succulents with rocks and marbles as decorations.

Cartridges used:  Folk Art Festival, Birthday Cakes, Better Together

This project fit perfectly for our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge this week, which is "Tea, Coffee, You or Me".  Come on over to the BBTB2 blog and link up your card or project using a Cricut cut. Our challenges now go for two weeks.  We have a few new designers, come on over and check out their craftiness.
