My Halloween Treats for Moms and Dads!

On Halloween, normally the only Trick or Treaters we get are friends and family bringing their kids by.  I started a tradition a few years ago of having a special treat for the moms and dads.  Here is what they will be receiving this year.

If you'd like to make your own, you can download my .cut file for the mugs HERE.  You need the George cart to cut these.

Each mug holds a packet of Spiced Cider and a cinnamon stick to stir with.  Paper is from Debbie Mumm's Holiday stack at Joann's.  This project was inspired by several similar projects posted on the Cricut Messageboard.  That board is a constant source of inspiration!

BOO wordbook Pics

Here are some pics of my finished BOO wordbook.  This was made using my .cut file posted in the sidebar.  This wordbook was for a challenge on Whimsical Scraps and Bugs in honor of their one year blog-iversary.   The challenge was to use Orange, Purple and Black, two star cut-outs and one stamped image.  .cut file uses George and Lyrical Letters.  Stars are from George.  Can you say "Candy"?  This book is loaded with a bowl-full of sparkly candy cut-outs.  Paper from K and Company and DCWV.

I have been unable to capture the sparkle and the dimension of this book.  All of the candy cutouts on the book are glittered and each page has multiple layers that are popped up using Stampin Dimensionals.  The Witches hat and shoes are from PC Hugware, Ooga Booga creatables.  Wire from Walmart.  Spider on web stamped image from Michael's $1 bin.  The majority of the papers are glittered papers and in person, this book really sparkles!

Thanks for looking!

Two more wordbooks to share!

I have created .cut files for two more wordbooks. One says "BOO". This wordbook uses George and Lyrical Letters.
The second wordbook says "Give Thanks" and also uses George and Lyrical Letters.

All .cut files are now available in my sidebar.  If you have any problems with these files, please let me know!

Merry Christmas wordbook

Hi, Everyone,
I am ready to share another file. This one is for a wordbook that says "Merry Christmas". The "I" in Christmas is a Christmas tree. You will need George and Winter Woodland to use this file. Let me know how you like it. I haven't cut mine yet. This version has a reindeer on top:

All wordbook files are available in my sidebar.

Eagle Scout Card

Today I made the card to go with the Eagle Scout wordbook so I can get them in the mail tomorrow. This card has a lot of dimension, but you can't tell in the pic. The Scout emblem is from Grand Adhesions. Papers from Michael's.
