Managed To Squeeze Some Scrappin' In....

Hey yall! Happy Tuesday! Well, even though I am taking a break for a while, I managed to squeeze in a few very simple, very basic cards while I am in AL visiting my parents. Life has just gotten in the way and I needed a little break. But while Mom was making some altered projects, I decided to sit and make a few easy cards using some new Cricut carts. So I thought I'd snap some pix and share with yall. First up, I created these 2 cards using the Cricut 'Happy Hauntings' cartridge. I have fallen in love with this cartridge. Ever since I bought my first Cricut a little over 2 years ago...I have always hoped Cricut would make a Halloween only cartridge. Now, they have like 3!!!! I bought this one a few weeks ago and Mom just got in the 'Pumpkin Carving' cartridge...another I can't wait to play with.

For each of these 2 Halloween cards, I started out with a simple cardstock base. I cut the frame out at 4 1/2". I then cut the letter 'F' out using the Vampire Font that is on the cartridge (the first letter of my Mom's last name.) I love this font! So cool!!! I thought she could use this simple card as a thank you card during the month of October. I added Stickles glitter glue and Glossy Accents to the letter. After adhering everything down, I added some pearls to the frame.
Next, another Halloween card using Happy Hauntings. I love the witch boot on this cart! Cute Cute CUTE!!!! I used Glossy Accents on the frame....am so loving that stuff right now! The little spider is from a Halloween Confetti pack. I added some Cuttlebug embossing to this card also.

Can you see the Glossy Accents on the frame?! I love this stuff! I've known about it for years, but do not own a bottle at home. So I had to dig into Mom's stash while I was here. I love how it stiffened up my frame and gave the card a glassy look.

These next 4 cards are all very simple. I started out with a pre printed cardstock base from My Mind's Eye and embellished. I am so lovin' this Create A Critter Cartridge as well! It is just beyond adorable!!!

Hippo Card

Apple Card

I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful week! I hope to be back to my norm in a few weeks.....just need some time off. But if I do scrap with my Mom while here visiting, I'll be sure to share with ya! As always, thanks for visiting my blog! Happy Scrappin'!!!

Pin It!
