Altered Composition Notebook Swap

I participated in the Altered Composition Notebook Swap on the Cricut Messageboard and I received my swap today. I was all smiles when I opened the package Davelor did a wonderful job on these, and she used her Cricut to cut most of the pieces on the notebooks. Love the papers, Glittered effects, Prima Flowers, which I do not see in my Michael's, they are doing some rearranging and clearing out items in the store. I am glad I participated.
Thank you so much Davelor.

Mentos Pencil

I saw this pencil in the Creating Keepsakes magazine and decided to give it a try. Only difference is that I used Mentos candies instead of Rolos. This is a great back to school gift for the teachers. Just place them in a pretzel bag with a tag. These are real simple and can be made up in not time.

Skulls & Roses Composition Notebook

This is a great project just cover in your favorite fabric or even cover with your favorite cardstock. I also added batting to give a soft feel. These altered composition notebooks are great for gift giving for the Holiday Season. Have fun crafting this project.

Halloween Shirts

I am still in the Halloween mode. So, I decided to the origami shirt a little further this year by making Halloween shirts with a small treat inside. Great party favors for the guys at the Halloween party.

Halloween Treat Envelope

I think I am in Halloween mode now. I created this using an envelope which I glimmer misted and glued the envelope to a piece of Halloween cardstock. Embellished with buttons, ribbon and stickers. (The rosette and pin were made by me.) These are real simple to make and they can hold treats and gift certificates for the trick-o-treaters.

Altered Composition Notebook/Halloween Treat Bag

Well, I couldn't sleep this morning so, I decided to alter a composition notebook for myself. Giving myself a test run for the swap. And I did another cardstock treat bag with a spooky Halloween theme.

Bag of Treats

This bag is created with one piece of cardstock. You can create dozens of these in no time for the treat or treaters, or for party guests.

Treat Holders

Here is a cute and quick project to make for your next get together. You use the Mini Monograms Cartridge to add initials. Add a twizzler or any other type of flat candy or even an ice tea to go packet for those who don't eat candy. There is even room on the reverse side for your information. This will definitely be one of the projects at my next Cricut class. This project was shared by Dawn5377.

Beaded Pins

Once again I have been watching a few videos and and saw these pretty flower pins. So I decided to give it a try with the beads that I already have. All I have to do now is just at the glue to the pieces. Sorry for the crappy picture, click on pic for real size.

Baby Girl Mini Album

I created this cute Baby Girl Mini Album with my Cricut, using the "New Arrival" cart (Tags) and the Sugar & Spice cart (Frames) and added a few embellishments I already keep on hand for party favors. I was inspired to do this project after watching a few videos. This was a pleasure to make and took most of the day. So, I did a fulls days work and a wonderful creation. I still need to find some large brads for the rings to preserve the holes. Thanks for stopping by.
