Hello, Brenda from Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker here. I was planning to post a wedding card today, but I’m still working on it. So I’m posting a Hello Kitty Halloween card I made last year for my daughter.
I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge to cut Hello Kitty and the pumpkin. Hello Kitty was cut at a 4 1/2″ and the pumpkin was cut at 2 1/2″. All cardstock is Bazzill. The base is white cardstock, and the patterned paper is something that was in my stash. The stamp used for the sentiment was purchased at Michaels.
I used my Gypsy to lay out my cuts on the mat so I knew where to place the different colors of cardstock and could cut everything at once. Here are pictures of my Gypsy screen and the cardstock on the mat.
If I get the wedding card done later, I’ll post it as well.
Thanks for visiting!

Hello everyone, I am sad to announce that this will be my last post with Cricut DIVA. I have had some exciting changes in my life that will result in the loss of my craftroom, my husband and I are expecting our second child in February. I hope you have enjoyed my posts and I have inspired you to be creative.
Now that we have our second child on the way I have been trying to work on my daughters first year before our second one arrives. Here I have focused on the first bath.
Bath Time Page 1
Bath Time Page 2
I used Recollections solids and the pattern paper is from my older papers, so I am not sure who they are by.
Title Close up
Here a close up of the title, I took I white gel pen to make the bubbles white on the writing as well as add Stickles for a little glimmer.
I cut out a cute baby girl in a bath tub and I used Peachy Keen Stamps for the face. I love these stamps it really helps to put personality into our creations. The rubber ducky is from a set of leftover stickers.
bubbles close up
On page two I wanted to detail so I put bubbles coming out of the picture with some added Stickles and a rubber duck sticker.
I added larger bubbles to the bottom of that page for my journaling, so it went with my theme.
Thank you for checking out my post and I hope I have inspired you.

Are you getting into the FALL season? I am and I’m so happy it’s official this Sunday. I made this halloween card to get into the spirit. I have a few college students I’ll be sending care packages to. I went into my “OLD Stash” to make this card. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that has “OLD” stuff.
I made it a 6×6 card using bazzil cream and the printed back ground paper is from Anna Griffin #AG1538. I made the rosette from vintage crepe paper streamer from my stash. I cut the tree from the Happy Haunting cartridge <tree-s> at measurement at 3.944(w)x4.736(h) with black card stock and I added orange paper behind the face. I add glitter on the tree branches.
I know it is a little early, but Halloween is my very favorite holiday and I start early every year with my decorations!!!
Today I made a BOO Banner to share with you. I used my Gypsy and Cricut Expression to decorate my it.
I used BOO! from CTMH Artiste sized to 2 inches. I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts and the “!”. I cut this out of glitter cardstock. When I use glitter cardstock, I reverse the image (I am showing the original image here) and place my cardstock glitter side down. I use multi-cut 2. When I am done, I wash my mat with dish soap and a scrubbie to get the glitter off.
I cut these 3D flower shapes from CTMH Art Philosophy sized to 5 inches. I rolled them up with my McGill tweezers and used liquid glue on the center to hold them together.
I needed something to mount the letters on. I cut this image from Teresa Collin’s Chic and Scary sized to 3 inches. I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts (oval and witch hat).
I used papers from my Halloween stash for all of my cuts.
I cut the triangles out of chipboard. I traced and cut the paper to fit. It was later (after I cut the paper) that I thought to cut everything out on the cricut…. at least I only had 3 banner flags!!
After I adhered the green paper to the banner flags, I used black acrylic paint to paint the edges.
Here is a close up of the 3D flower that I rolled up. You can also see that I pop-dotted the letters onto the orange paper.
I finished the banner off with some orange ribbon.
I hope you have as much fun decorating for Halloween (or fall) as I do!!!
Here are pictures of each of the pages separately.
This is the layout that is featured on page 86 of the handbook, and here is a picture of the page for your reference,
I cut everything at 11″, and all my cardstock is Bazzill. I really enjoyed being able to cut everything for my layout from the Artbooking cartridge, and I wanted to show everyone one of the wonderful features of this cartridge. This can be a real help for anyone when they are pressed for time or are having a creative block.

This morning I bring to you some baby shower party favors that I made for a friend. Here’s some pictures:
I wish I had more pictures to show you but I already gave them to my friend. To make these cute little party favors, I used a paper pack from Close to My Heart called Babycakes.
I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the little take out boxes as well as the circles behind the animals. The takeout boxes were cut at 7″. You can find the image on page 24, A4, Shift, Font Layer, < Dragnfly >. The circles can be found on page 21, A1, < Circle1 > and were cut at 2″.
The cute little animals came from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. The stamp set Wild Wonders coordinates with this cartridge and so I was able to cut out the rhinocerous and the lion using the cartridge.
I edged each circle w2ith Chocolate ink to help give them a bit of dimension.
Please visit my blog at Love 2 Create to check out the other projects I made for the baby shower.
