To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For my project this week I made some Halloween cups. Lots and lots of them, actually. Here are a couple of them.

There are images from several cartridges on them, including (but not limited to) Stretch Your Imagination and Happy Hauntings.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week, and a safe and fun Halloween if you celebrate. Remember to join us at FCCB for this great challenge!

Playing on the Explore - file share

 I was playing in Design Space today to make some tea light holder for Halloween. There was a definite learning curve with the slice feature, but I finally got it to work.

The mistake I made on this one was not measuring the tab for putting them together. It was easily remedied by cutting off the tabs a bit, but hopefully I will remember next time I do this.

With the light - sorry about the bad picture:/

This one is a little more friendly for those of you who don't like scary. I'm not sure why my camera wouldn't focus, this was the best shot of the bunch.

All of the images are Cricut so I can share. Here's the link if you want to try one. These only have faces on two sides, I left the extra faces on the mat in case you want to add more.

Hope that works. Have fun!

MCCR - Retro

Today's theme at My Cricut Craft Room is Retro. I used a couple of images from the Nifty Fifties cartridge to create this card. I am really enjoying the new slice feature on Design Space. It's been fun to play with and is allowing me to add dimension to my cards in different ways.

I also used the writing feature on this card. I used an American Crafts purple marker, and the font from the Billionaire cartridge, to create the sentiment.

You can see some of the dimension on these two shots.

I cut the background from the tennis shoe image out of the middle of the solid card stock using the slice feature, then changed the color of the paper so I could cut that piece from the patterned paper. It was nice to not have to re-size things, just cut. I have the pink piece left from the front and will insert that on the inside of the card. I ended up with more negative space than a pile of piece stacked on top of each other. Kind of cool. Hope everyone has a great day!

Mickey, Minnie and Me Blog Hop with MMCR

Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Minnie, Mickey and Me Blog Hop

Today I made a glass cutting board with my first ever split design!  I have the Disney cartridges so I can play with them in Design Space. The image is from the Mickey and Friends Cartridge.  I split it myself using the slice feature (can't wait to play with that more!) and inserted the name. 

I did remember to reverse the image before I cut, yay!  There are some bubbles, but not as many as it looks like there are in the picture. The top has a textured surface so it photographs kind of funky.

Next you will go to Sonja's Blog 

7.  Craft Lovers Come Here- 

Enjoy the hop!

Pun Fun at FCCB

Hello, Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday

Challenge #232 Pun Fun
Make a project using a pun

$15.00 Giftcard

For my card today I used an image from Groovy Times in Cricut Design Space. I've found myself in need of some cards for guys recently and thought this would be a great opportunity to make something.

The sentiment is from KAndrew Designs (sadly no longer in production) and it lent itself really well to this challenge.The papers are all Recollections. I think the embossing folder is from Darice, and the silver dots are from my stash. 

I hope everyone has a great week. Remember to join us for some punny fun!

Disney fun at MCCR

It's Disney day at My Cricut Craft Room. I love Disney!! This card was made using an image from Mickey and Friends in Design Space. Minnie is cut at 4".

All of the solid paper is Recollections. The embossing folder used behind Minnie is from Darice (I think). The sentiment is from KAndrew Designs*. It was cut out with a My Creative Time die. 

I found another sentiment I wanted to use, so I made another card. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted it to, but it's ok. 

I had trouble cutting one of the light blue papers so I ended up cutting the eyes in white and coloring them with a Promarker pen to get the look Iwanted. That worked pretty well. This image is from The Best of Pixar cartridge.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
