Howling cats, and a big black spider,

Smiling pumpkins can be seen;

Now, prepare to be spooked!

Here is what I made:

      I was inspired by the rosette Christmas wreath in the Close To My Heart catalog.  I used several cricut cartridges to create my Halloween version.  I must admit, it has been over a year since I played with my cricut.  After purchasing my silhouette, my E2 just sat there and collected dust.  I pondered selling it a few times, but boy am I glad I didn't!  I forgot what fun my cricut is.  I used CTMH paper and I have to tell you it cuts like butter.  I thought the silhouette cut better, but it turns out the right paper is all I needed in the cricut.  I will be using my cricut a lot more and am debating if I want to take the plunge and invest in the explore. 


 Cricut cartridges I used:
Ribbons & Rosettes
Mini Monsters
Holiday Cakes
Martha Stewart Crafts seasonal cake art

CTMH paper I used:
 Scaredy Cat Paper Packet
Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Assortment
Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to leave me some love, I lalways look forward to reading your comments. 
 Krafty Hugs,
 Dawn

  4. Now this project looks like a lot of fun to make! And with different papers, could be used for any occasion. Great job! I have the Silhouette machines and still have my Cricut. There are a ton of great images on the cartridges, so I'm not willing to give them up! You should have fun exploring the cartridges you own! You'll find some happy surprises there!!
