Turkey Day is around the Corner

I can not believe Thanksgiving is like two weeks away. It felt like it was just here and now a whole year as passed. I figure this is the last year I can make fun shirts for my oldest (youngest has a few more years). 

I designed (with help from the little one) thier Thanksgiving shirts. Mr. L is well Doctor Who inspired. He was so excited when I showed it to him. My hubby laughed and said it was really cute. 

Both shirts were a lot of cutting and piecing even using the Cricut and worth it because they turned out so cute!

Dollar Store Thanksgiving Decor

I love easy crafts and well this was an easy one. I spent more time looking for the glue than actually putting it together. This craft was under 10 bucks (mainly because I had the popcorn already).

I just bought three hurricanes from the dollar store, glued candle sticks on them and filled with popcorn kernels and added the candle.

CASE-ing the Catty # 14- Color Challenge

This week at CASE-ing the Catty we are doing a color challenge using the above colors. These colors are inspired by the Santa and Co suite. I love the colors for Christmas. 

For my card this week, I was inspired both by the Watercolor Winter Simply Created kit which I used with a piece of the fun DSP from Santa  & Co. I also used the stamp set Endless wishes for my greeting. These three made some fun cards to make. 

Here are two others I was inspired to make as well. 

Just love these all together and they will make my cards so much more sparkle for the holidays!

Also we will be back after the holidays with more fun! We want to enjoy the fun of the seasons with our families.

My Cricut Craft Room- Clouds

Thanks for joining me at My Cricut Craft Room and today's theme is Clouds!!!

I was unsure how I would do clouds for this theme but I came up with this fun scrapbook page for my daughter and my mother in law.

I used my own file for Hello specifically I imported into CDS SU's hello from one of thier digital sets made for ecutters.

Sunshine was from the April Showers Cart and I used the write feature for the Explore.

The rectangles are your basic freebie from CDS and I sized to fit the picture and layered!

The clouds are from the Crocs Rule cart. I just cut out the layers using different types of DSP from SU. Love how they look! 

I love how simple but adorable the page turned out

12 Days of Christmas Crafts- Day 5

I saw over at one of my favorite blogs Christmas Gifts to make . I loved the idea of making the inserts for the frame and went ahead and did my own version of it to give out as gifts to friends. It was a quick gift and it looks so cute and it gives all year.

Mug Swap Fall 2014

My friend Jessica from Organized  Design  told me about this great thing called a mug swap sponsored by  Meg from Megoonthego and Darby from Life with the Hawleys.  I thought what a fun idea to do and well of course I signed up right away. I love mugs and might have a slight mug problem to begin with!

So I got paired with Chelsea from Red Velvet Rooster  (make sure to check out her blog).  

So I went to work and ventured into Marchall's/Homegoods to see what they had because I know they always have a ton of fun mugs. 

Chelsea mentioned she liked navy and I found this fun mug there. 

It seemed to fit her personality between what she told me and her blog. So I am sending it off to her. 

In return Chelsea is sending me one as well so here is what she sent me.

Here is the adorable owl she sent me!

My Cricut Craft Room- Sewing

So today on MCCR, I am doing something outside of the box. The theme for today is Sewing and I thought what could I do. I love to sew a bunch and well I decided to make a quilt. I wanted to showcase how you can make templates using the Cricut instead of buying those expensive ones from the quilt store. 

I went in and used a basic hexagon shape from the My Quiet Book Cart.  It is pretty big like nearly ten inches across. I used some cardboard I had on hand to cut it out using the poster board setting. 

So here is my pile of fat quarters I used from a stash of fabric I have had for ever. I was able to cut at least two hexagons using the template. 

Once it was all together, it had the sticking out edges so I just trimmed them. 

Here is the quilt top. It is lap size and I need to quilt and bind it.
