Halloween Wreath

This is a wreath that I made for Halloween.
My daughter wanted some "spooky" decoartions, but not too "spooky".
She's only four.

I used the Home Decor, Mother's Day Bouquet,
Gypsy Wanderings, and Sugar and Spice cartridges.

I used DCWV glitter stack
Black and gray & white print is Elegant gown from American Crafts
Orange cardstock and green gems - Recollections.
Black double faced satin ribbon -  Midori.

I am entering this in the
Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Halloween home decor
My Craft Spot - Challenge # 30  3D Halloween
Decorate to Celebrate Challenge # 11 - Halloween Party

Thanks for looking

Children's Wall Decor

I made this for my two year old neighbor's birthday
and it happened to fit the theme for
Fantabulous Cricut challenge #81 – D├ęcor and More

This was my first attempt at decoupage.
I used a 12x12 canvas and painted it first with acrylic paint.
I used the Home Decor, Mother's Day bouquet, Flower Shoppe and Kate's ABCs cartridges.

I layered the background paper, name and frame and sealed them with several coats of Mod Podge.
I used a foam brush and coated the flowers as well.
When everything was dried I added a touch of bling.

Thanks for looking

Boo Banner

 This is my entry for the My Craft Spot design team call.

My 4year old has been asking for some "spooky" decorations.

I didn't have any Halloween cartridges, so I used my Gypsy and made a couple of ghosts out of mushroom stems and welded a wavy bottom to it.

I used the Sugar and Spice Cricut cartridge, Cricut Classic Font, Cindy Loo, George and Basic shapes.
The polka dot, white glitter and orange glitter paper is DCWV. The black paper is Colorbok.
The bright orange is from the Recollections "South Beach" pack.
I used the Sizzix Diamonds embossing folder on the black centers of each tag.
The orange gingham ribbon is Basic Basic.
Black satin is Midori.

Thanks for looking.
