BBTB2: Cricut - Celebrate Fall Wall Decor

Hello Followers,

Today I have a home d├ęcor project that I am really happy to display out on my porch.  Can you believe this white board was actually a door off an old bathroom vanity?  I did have to strategically place my flowers to hide the holes from the knob and a gouge.

My flowers are mostly from Walmart (98 cents), and I had the vinyl for a few years, so this project only cost a few bucks. I spritzed the door with spray inks, but because the door is similar in texture to vinyl, the ink did not infuse.  So when it dried, I put a clear coat of sealer on top.  I edited the image from Design Space and separated the two words and sliced out the leaves from image.  The transfer to the door went smoothly and quickly.  I hot glued on the artificial flowers and a ribbon left over from a gift.

I am the hostess this week at Bitten by the Bug2, and I have selected "Fall Holidays - Anything Goes" as the theme for the next two weeks.  I would love to see what you create, you can link up your card, layout or project HERE.

BBTB2: Cricut - Halloween Witch's Hat Makeover

A few years ago I posted this witch's hat on the Bitten by the Bug2 Blog.  That was back before I had my Explore and just worked from cartridges.  So I decided it needed a little sprucing up.  More is better, right?  So I added the back images, sprayed it with ink, added a spider web and dangling spider and more.   It's pumpkin time at Bitten by the Bug2, and this does have a print and cut pumpkin on the back so it qualifies for the challenge for the next two weeks.  Show us your pumpkins by linking up your project HERE.

I have also added a picture of the original hat so you can see the differences.  There are too many cartridges and embellishments to name, so just have a look but don't get scared away.

Here is the original version.
