Halloween Placemats

My 5 yr. old  granddaughter and I made some Halloween placemats. Here are the results.
She had the idea of the haunted house center and I had the idea of the pumpkin center.
I got all the pieces cut out and she helped me adhere them onto the paper.
We made 8 placemats. My granddaughter wanted green and purple placemats.
I wanted Orange and purple placemats. It really was fun working together with her.
I really enjoyed helping her bring her ideas with the haunted house to life.

The doilies were made with the Martha Stewart Spider circle punch.
The center is a 12" circle and the corners were an 8" circle divided into 4 corner pieces.
The Large bat is an EK Success bat punch (shown by the pumpkin).
The bats by the haunted house are from the Martha Stewart bat and EEK punch.
The witch on the broom is the Martha Stewart witch punch.
The black cat is also a Martha Stewart Punch.
The pumpkins in the corner are from a Martha Stewart large border punch.
I cut the pumpkins out from that punch.
The Ghosts are from Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge (cut at 3").
The pumpkin is from Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge(cut at 5").
The haunted house is from the Monster Bash Cricut cartridge (cut at 5").
I used my Xyron Creatopia to laminate the placemats.

New Cricut Circle Cartridge Charmed - Making Shrinky Dinks

I recently rejoined the Cricut Circle Group. This year's newest cartridge is called Charmed.
It is used with the new universal overlay. The handbook is a new 3-1/2"x3-1/2" size.(Sold Separately)
The new box size is 3-3/4"x4" box.

This cartridge images are designed to make charms. I received my cartridge yesterday and couldn't wait to get started making Shrinky Dink Charms.  I love Halloween images so I made these 3 charms for Halloween to test everything out. I am so happy with the results!!

These charms were cut at 4".
I used Frosted Shrinky Dink Material
I colored the Spider and Pumpkin with Sharpie Markers
I colored the Ghost with a white colored pencil.

They were all cut on the Imagine machine at 4" real dial size multi cut 3.
When I cut the shrinky dink material I put the side you color face down on the mat.

I heated the oven to 350 degrees. I placed them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
I didn't time it. I just waited for them to shrink and then flatten out again.
Then removed from oven. It probably took a minute or two.

They finished out at:
Pumpkin - 2" wide - 1-1/2 Long
Spider - 2-1/8" Wide - 1-3/4" Long
Ghost - 1-1/2" Long - 3/4" wide (hand to hand)

I can't wait to make more charms with my Granddaughter!! I had to test it out first though.
Everything went perfectly!!

This is the packaging from the Shrinky Dinks Material.

Happy Crafting!!

Make Your Own Journaling Tags

I decided to try my hand at making some journaling tags for a layout I am working on.
I wanted to pass the information along to you so you can get some ideas and try some yourself!
I'm not one to put journaling on my layouts. But, I want to change that and incorporate it in a fun way. I used my CTMH stamp sets and Cricut Cuts.

Here's some of what I came up with. I can't wait to use them on some layouts!


CTMH Stamp sets used:
S1109 - Limited Edition for the lines.
C1526 - Spellbound Cricut Workshop Holidays for Happy Halloween.
C1522 - Creepy Creatures Holiday

Halloween Treat Bags And Candy Wrappers

Happy Halloween!!

I've been making some last minute quick and easy treat bags and candy wrappers for Halloween.
These are super easy and fun to make.

This bag was decorated with a pumpkin cute from Smiley Faces Cartridge.
I used felt fusion to decorate the bottom of the bag and ribbon to accent the top.
I put Halloween tissue paper on the inside to finish the look.
I used Micro Bags 4" x 5-1/8" . These are a perfect size for treat bags.

This bag I made a window with the Martha Stewart punch all over the page punch.
I decorated the bag with felt fusion and twine.
I framed out the window on the bag with patterned paper.
I accented the inside of the bag with Halloween tissue paper.

This bag I used the Smiley Face Cartridge for the candy corn die cut.
I accented the bag with ribbon.
This bag I also accented the inside of the bag with Halloween tissue paper.

To wrap your candy cut your paper to size for wrapping.
In this instance I cut a 6" x 7" piece of cardstock.

For these Kit Kat mini candy bars I used a 6" x 6" cardstock to wrap them.
I applied double sided tape to three sides of the paper then wrapped them.

I took my Marvy paper crimper and crimped both ends of the candy wrapper.
I accented them with patterned cardstock and ribbon.

Cricut Cartridge - Sweet Tooth - Pumpkin Treat Box - cut at 7".
Cricut Cartridge - Mother's Day Bouquet - Leaves - cut at 2".
For the stem I just rolled a small piece of paper into a tube and adhered it on with a glue gun.
