Fall Treats at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

Hello Crafty Friends,

Thanks for stopping by today on this fabulous Friday. I am Guest Designer at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I am super excited to share a couple projects I made using Lisa's files. I decided to make Fall treats since we are ready for some cooler weather.

Here are my projects...

The first project is a Happy Pumpkin Treat Bag. Easy to cut with the Cameo and assemble, which made me happy too. I added Reese's Pieces in a 3" x 4" zip bag.

I covered the front of the pumpkin with a piece of clear transparency to prevent the bag from slipping through.

Cute handle that slides into the side slots.

The other fall project I made was an owl lollipop holder. Cute! Cute! Cute! I many licks does it take to get to the center?!?!

I inked all the edges, added a Blow Pop (Walmart didn't have any Tootsie Pops this time.), and tied a piece of jute on the lollipop stick.

Here they are again...

Hope you have a great day. Be sure to stop by Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons to check out the Freebie Friday file.

How About Some Fruit at DoubleClick Skittles

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by today for a new challenge at DoubleClick Skittles! Back to School has been in full swing for the past two weeks (the projects submitted for the last challenge were awesome), which mean summer is winding down. Even though it may be the end of summer it sure is hot still (it has been in the mid 90's here in Florida with a heat index of 100). When it gets that hot you need a refreshing way to cool down.

This Week's Challenge...Use any Fruit
In honor of peach month

Here is my Design Team project... 
I chose a pitcher of lemonade and a couple lemons since the tart taste makes me pucker up, but cools me down! My daughter's favorite is currently raspberry lemonade. is super yummy too!

I used Savory Cricut cartridge for the pitcher (2 3/4") and Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge for the lemons (cut at 2", p. 73) and sentiment (cut at 1", (p. 73). The base (3 1/2") is from Campin' the shapes you can use on this cartridge.  

Spring Yellow Skittles ~ 25 in a pack 

These Skittles are super easy to adhere to your project. I use a Martha Stewart glue pen and they won't fall off! They add some dimension and character to all your projects! Get a set today! LOTS of colors to chose from!
Hope you will join us at DoubleClick Skittles this week for our "Use any Fruit" challenge. The other design team members have done a fantastic job with apples, oranges, and lemons,  so be sure to check them out! Be sure to enter, so you can win some skittles for Challenge #4.

Hope you will join the challenge this week!

Lions, Tigers, and Bears...Oh My!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back for another Die Cuttin' Diva Tuesday! This week we have a new challenge and it honors a movie classic. One of my ALL time favorites that I would watch every year...Wizard of Oz. 

This Week's Challenge...
Lions, Tigers and Bears
Choose one or all decide!

Here is my Design Team project...
I chose this tiger from the KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ Cutesy Zoo Animals. Isn't he super sweet looking! I like him on that background paper since it looks like he is really in the grasslands.

I found this sentiment from an old My Pink Stamper set. I framed it in orange and scattered a few orange sequins.

I layered the orange and cream card stock on the inside after rounding the two opposite corners. A personal note can be written to the recipient.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Lions, Tigers, and Bears" challenge. The other design team members have done a fantastic job with their creations, so be sure to check them out!

Hope you will join the challenge this week!
Stay Creative,
