How cute is this box?

I made it for Renee’s Did-I-Mension? Circleville NSD Online Event to make a 3D box, bag or more.

Since my Cricut Mini is sitting on my desk ready to use I simply sized the box to easily fit on the smaller mat.

My box~


I used DCWV’s The Juniper Berry Stack for my papers.

I love that they are sturdy enough to support my box, especially since the bottom is tucked into the top without any adhesive.

To match the bird theme I chose Studio Calico’s a little birdie told me stamp.

The top~


Another challenge completed. Yippee!!

If you get a chance head over to Renee’s blog and join in.

I used~
DCWV The Juniper Berry Stack, Studio Calico Stamps and seam binding ribbon
Cricut Artiste Cartridge for the box cut at 4.88″ high

Hello There Jack-O-Lantern!

You know how you see a project someone has made and you just have to try it?

My DCWV Stack-a-holic Design team member, Amanda Phillips, made the most adorable paper jack-o-lanterns.

Hers are so much better, so please check them out here.

Meet my Jack~

I made him for the Cricut Circle Canadian Swarm.

I know I’m not Canadian, but those girls are letting this Virginia girl and everyone else join in the fun.

The first challenge was to create a Halloween Home Decor item using one Cricut cut, the color purple and at least one of the following: glitter, ribbon or a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I think I managed to use them all but the glitter.

The back of Jack is a purple, green, orange and black plaid, so the purple does actual match.

Jack is proudly sitting on the steps with the other pumpkins waiting for Halloween.

Or at least he was until Hartly carried him off.

Hmmm…wonder if Jack will survive until Halloween.

If you’re a Cricut Circle member, please join in the fun.

I used~
DCWV The Bewitched Stack and The Halloween & Fall Stack
Favorite Findings Buttons, Ribbon, Papertrey Twine
Pumpkin Carvings for the Jack-o-lantern face, CTMH Artiste for the leaf
Forest Branches Cuttlebug Folder and Misc Tim Holtz Folder

A Little Pumpkin Fun~

I have the new DCWV Wild Splendor Stack and the new Close to my Heart Artiste cartridge.

And I’ve been wanting to play with both.

So, today I decided to make some of these adorable 3D pumpkins.

My pumpkins~

Aren’t they cute?

And isn’t that paper fabulous?

It can be found at Michaels this month.

They can be filled with little treats or used simply for decoration.

I can see using these to decorate the Thanksgiving Day table.

I used a Lori Whitlock 3D crate to hold mine.

Next time I think I’ll cut a second layer to give my crate a bit more sturdiness.

A close up~

I just love those leaves.

So, don’t be surprised if I come back with larger pumpkins soon.

I used~
DCWV The Wild Splendor Stack, Papertrey Ink Twine, Jenni Bowlin Brown Sugar Paint Dabber, Brown Ink
CTMH Artiste for the 3D Pumpkins cut at 5.5″ and leaves at 5.25″
