I bought this "S" at HL...taped some giraffe paper on it and used a craft knife to cut around the edges...last, I tied a zebra print ribbon around the "S". I bought the over the door hanger from Wal-Mart - in the Christmas dept.

Cricut Shirt

I made the decorations for this shirt using my friend Whitney's detailed instructions. I was surprised at how easy this was...thanks to all of her hard work :-)

Heat N Bond (found at Wal-Mart)

I cut the image 3 times. Ironed it on. Then sewed on the buttons.

Boy Treat Paint Can

I used clear paint cans to create a little boy trick or treat can. The spider and spider web can be found on the Wild Card cart. The bat is on the PDDU cart. I tied spider web ribbon around the handle.

Slice meets CB embossing

I recently got the Slice...tonight I was cutting some of the images I think I will be using the most (in all the sizes from 1" to 4" - in 1/2" increments). I bought some CB embossing folders this week from Ms with the 40% discount they were is a 2 1/2" Star from the Slice Basic Shapes cart and one of the CB star embossing folders. I used my SU stampin' spots to ink the raised area and the edges.

Darth Vader

I have been slowly working on a Star Wars room. I found some inspiration online today.

Here are the links...

Star Wars name frame was the first inspiration...

Next, I had to search and search and search until I finally found the recipe for the dolls.

Shopping Trip

I went to Ms today. Found some cool things. I just got The Slice Machine this week. I haven't figured out how to emboss a cut very easily with the Slice, but I did find some CB embossing folders that will work perfectly with squares I cut with the CB.

Cute $1.00 Crayola notepads and tins. I think these will make cute gifts for teachers.

I am really excited about the loaf dishes. How cute are they? Can't wait to bake something and even decorate the dish with some vinyl!

I bought an embossing heat tool and I am not sure I love heat embossing. I love dry embossing with my Cuttlebug though. I can't wait to try the heat embossing on the new Snow Friends cart coming out next month!

Scarecrow bag

Here is the original (made by Donna) cute is her version?

I don't have the embossing folders she used but they are on their way...wahhoooo! I love Scarecrows and couldn't wait to try it out.

I used Plantin SchoolBook for the bag - cut at 10".

I cut the eyes using a 1" circle from the George Cart. The nose is a 3/4" triangle cut from George. I free handed the mouth and eyelashes. Buttons for eyes. My great friend Whitney gave me a Quick Kutz Quick Stik that was awesome for placing the mouth. (THANKS Whitney!)

The hat is 3" and cut from PaperDolls Dress Up. I ran the ribbon through my Xyron 1" and then placed it on the hat. I cut 2 hats...I placed one on top of the rafia and one underneath.

I forgot to add brown around the edges of the I am off to do that now.
