I have some clean up work to do on this one, but thought I would go ahead and post tonight.
Otherwise, this was pretty easy to do...:-) Bah Humbug to all those on the Cricut MB that think this is too hard to tackle.

- Cut patterened paper to fit the inside of the plastic cover.
- Next, cut your image - an Initial would also work great with this project.
For future use, I did not tape/glue down the patterened paper to the calendar. Once the calendar is obsolete, it can either be replaced or used as a checkbook cover.

I decided to decorate a few for upcoming seasons.
I made this Scarecrow using the Cricut PaperDolls cart. I cut the doll at 4. I cut the head seperately at 1 1\2 (real size - this is the only thing cut with "Real Size"). The shirt is cut at 3 1/8 and the pants are cut at 4. Hat was also cut at 4.
To cover the bag, I left the bag flat, mesaured the paper (which is makingmemories -Autom Splendor 4x6 sheets). One sheet covers the front and one side...then turn the box over and repeat covering the back and the other side.
To make the Santa Suit, I covered the box with red paper. The I added a 1" x 8 1/2" white strip. Next I added the black strip - which is 1/2" x 8 1/2". The red straps are criss-crossed in the back and are 1/2" wide. I tucked the excess behind the red on the bottom of the bag. Buckle- I don't have a square punch so I used DS to make a 1" square (George Cart) and then I made a smaller square to fit inside the 1" square so it would look like buckle. Finally I added some trim I got at HL during Valentine's season.

I found this cute little scarecrow at Wal-Mart tonight for 1.00 and had to buy him.
My Mom had sent over the pail earlier this week -so it was a freebie.
I had the ribbon already - it is Basic Basic item 15 7877 88.
FALL - I used George cart (1" letters). I used the Cricut "fashion collection" markers to write Fall (used multi-cut x 2). Then I cut the frame from the Sweethearts cart at roughly 2.5" - it was altered a little using DS to make it a tad bigger. I freehanded the border in brown using the brown Cricut marker.
I cut the leaves using various carts. One cart was the Wild Card and I cut the leaf at 3.5" and 2.5" . Then I used my Copic markers to decorate them a bit.
The pumpkin was cut using 3" scalloped ovals (see previous posts for instructions and reference to the original creator of this pumpkin).
I used styrofoam in the bottom to hold the scarecrow in place and then I place tissue paper on top of the styrofoam.
Let me know if you have any questions.

The spooky house was put together by my son (all by himself!!!!) It is made of foam. Michaels had them on sale this week for 3.99...couldn't pass on 4.00 entertainment.

Fall is approaching!
Here is a pumpkin I made using the frame on the Cricut Wildcard Cart for image "Thinking". It is a scalloped oval. The ovals were cut at 3" using DS so the middle was not cut out. I used Cricut WIMG for the leaves at 1". The other greenery was cut free hand and wrapped around a pencil for curl.
I made these gift bags for my daughter's teachers. I used the Cricut Sweethearts cart for the "cartoche" and outlined it using the Cricut markers. I also used the Cricut markers to write the teacher's name on the Cartoche. I used SU! stamps for the cards.

Next I inked my card. Then I used various stamps with SU! craft pad (white) to decorate the card.
