Silhouette Saturday with SVG Cuts

Welcome to my Saturday Silhouette project. Today I have created two scrapbook pages from SVG Cuts Christmas Scrapbook Set.  These were so easy to put together and make awesome pages for my scrapbooks.  I can't wait to complete the others in the set.  Be sure to stop over and visit them on their website.  Mary and Leo are one talented team!  Thanks for letting me share.

Wednesday Daily Project for Exploring Cricut

 Welcome to the Wednesday daily project for Exploring Cricut.  I will be filling in for the rest of this month so hope you are not tired of seeing my stuff for 3 days lol.  I decided to make these cute little treat boxes using the cartridges Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 and Happy Hauntings.  These were fast and easy and would make great treats for school or a party.
I used the gable box on page 24 of Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 and cut at 5.5 inches.  I just cut some scraps I had for the fronts of each.  I used Happy Hauntings for the ghost that are cut 2 and 2.5 inches.  I inked around the edges.  The witch hat is cut at 3 inches.  Just added some ribbon I had in my stash and some stickles.  Super easy!  Thanks for letting me share with you!

Tuesday Daily Project at Exploring Cricut

Hello! Today is my day for the daily project at Exploring Cricut.  I am sharing a calendar page I made using the Happy Hauntings cartridge.  I thought I would start making these and have a complete calendar for my scrap room for 2014!  The calendar blank is a free one from the internet and I just mounted it on black cardstock.  It was printed on white cardstock.  The background paper is from a stack from Michaels called Recollections Haunted Estate.  I think I got it last year.  The title was cut at 1.75 inches, Ghost at 4 inches, Frankie and Bride were cut at 4.25 inches.  Fast and easy project.

Silhouette Saturday with My Scrap Chick

Welcome to my Saturday Silhouette project. This has been one of those busy and crazy weeks. My husband was home for some of it and I never seem to get anything done when he is home. I did get a couple small projects completed for this week.  Today I used two designs from My Scrap Chick.  I love this Haunted House Easel card and this Pumpkin box.  They were easy to complete and are perfect for this time of year.  Be sure to check out all the SVG files the girls have on their site.  See you next week with another project.

Wednesday Project for Exploring Cricut

Welcome to another daily project for Exploring Cricut. I am not trying to be an overachiever this week at all, but today I am filling in for one of the DT who is not feeling well.  I have a simple birthday card I created using the Creative Cards cartridge and some scraps.  Don't you love it when you can use leftovers for a project.  I think the pattern paper came from Hobby Lobby and I had a 6 inch square and was able to use it.  I cut everything at 5 inches and with the left over piece from the front panel, I used it to decorate the envelope I made.  This was a quick and easy project.  I used CTMH stamp and ink as well.  Be sure to join us this week for our challenge at Exploring Cricut too!

Silhouette Saturday featuring Miss Kate Cuttables

Today I am sharing a one page layout (second Page in process) that I made using the SVG files from
Miss Kate Cuttables. I love all the great files she has and every day she offers a free svg and daily deals. I have an album full of all her free designs and of course, I have purchased several too. I did make the title a little larger and each of these different cuts were individual so your could mix and match.  Stop by her blog and check out all the great stuff she has to offer.  See you next week with another great project for the Silhouette!
