MCCR Blog Hop - All Autumn Ideas

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's All Autumn Ideas Blog Hop....

You will find many WONDERFUL Autumn ideas along this hop today... Enjoy! 

If you came from My Cricut Craft Room you are in the right place...

If not please visit to start the hop. 

Today I made negative fall art!

I saw this awesome art at the craft store and thought I could make that with the Cricut. 

I took a 12x12 piece of Stampin Up retired Designer Paper and cut out the owl using the Wall Decor and More Cartridge. I matted it with contrasting paper so the cut out pops for you. 

Here is a closer look at the owl. 

I also took the cut out image and glued that on to cream paper and framed that in a shadow box as well. So here I am with two pieces of art from 1 piece of paper and it was so easy to do. I love this idea to change shapes and colors for the seasons. This is a perfect autumn colored project.

CASE-ing the Catty Week #10

This week is all about the Artistic Expression found on page 154 of the SU catalog. 

There are so many great things in this section that well I did a hybrid of sorts for my CASE. I also used some past Paper Pumpkin pieces as well (make sure to check out Paper Pumpkin). 

I just love those little notebooks and well have used them for a few projects including a pinterst one for a group. 

I also love the camera stamp called snapshot. 

Basically I decorated the front of the little notebook up using inspiration from page 164 of the catalog.

CASE-ing the Catty Week# 9

Week 9 is all about the Thank you section in the catalog (144-153) and there were so many great ideas. Make sure to go over to CASE-ing the Catty and check out everyone's great projects. 

For me this week, I was instantly drawn to the gift bag made out of the window box on page 151. I made it my own by using some washi tape and that big bow to compliment the thank you sentiment. 

The box was super easy to do. I just cut off the lid, taped down the one flap and than added on the handle (I cut about 1.25x8 inch piece of card stock ) by attaching it with brads I had. I used a mixture of new stuff and retired because I like to utilize what I have my stash of stuff.

My Cricut Craft Room- Camping

Today is my Camping Inspired Scrapbook Page for MCCR.

This was a timely one for me because we just got back from Camping this past weekend. We haven't camped in YEARS and it was the kids first time. 

I created this page using the following cartridges and 18 separate mats for this page: 

Campin Critters
Camp Out
Basic Shapes (Rectangle and Square)

Here is the page in all of its glory!

Close up of the icons I created. 

Close of of the tree cluster and the camp!

The cute little tags. 

I have seen similar layouts like this and loved the idea of using it for a camping theme. I used all Stampin up paper.

CASE-ing the Catty- Week #8- Card Giving

So what is Stampin Up all about about- well card giving of course!

That is this week's CASE-ing the Catty Challenge and well this was so hard to decide which card to case so I went more with one that was inspiring. The Card giving section is pages 102-143 which is a huge part of the catalog. 

I went through it numerous times and when I saw the cute card on page 115- Friends who know, I though I need to make something like that. It reminded me of chalkboard which I LOVE. 

I stamped using the layered flower and of course used the hello there from our hostess set. I embossed it all in different colors. I love how it turned out and would love to make more of these in many versions.

CASE-ing the Catty Week #7- Home Decor

Week 7 here and this week it is Home Decor (pages 94-101) for CASE-ing the Catty Challenge!

I am using an a project I did many months ago when I first saw it in the catalog. I loved the idea of being able to use my new ecutter to cut out MDS stuff. this took as long as a card would take me because the pillow is so simple. I was inspired 

I got the Moments Ago Brush set and imported it into the cutting system. I than ironed it on a pillow I made from retired Stampin Up fabric.  How cute is it!

Thanks for stopping by!
