For my first project I used Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge.  With  school starting next week, I thought I would make a card for Brayden's first day back to school!

For my back to school card, I cut the crayolas from the Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge at 3 inches.  All of my papers are from Recollections.  The Twine is from The Twinery.  Can you believe I don't have a back to school stamp.  I printed the sentiment on my computer. I added some Studio G glitter glue to the crayola. 

A closer look!

For my second project, I used Elmo & Friends Holiday Cricut Cartridge.   I am so ready for Fall that I decided to make a Halloween card.  

I cut my Count image at 2 1/2 inches. In the pic above, you can see it still on my mat.  When I cut something that has a lot of little pieces I usually leave it on my mat until I am ready for it. 

Sorry for the awful pics, I was obviously having a bad night.  This one is a bit fuzzy, but it the Count after I put him together. 

My card base is black card stock from Wal-Mart and was cut at 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scoring it in the center to form an A2 sized card.  The next layer is from K & Company's Halloween stack from last year.  It's double sided and the purple polka dots is on the other side.  Yes ,I know it looks sorta pink.  

This is a much better pic you can actually see the colors.  I added some twin from The Twinery and a little purple button.  My image was popped up using Recollections foam squares.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's "Fall-o-ween" stamp set.  I stamped it on some scrap paper with Tuxedo Black Ink.  

For my 3rd and final project today, I used French Manor Cricut Cartridge.  

These are the things that I started with: My Mind's Eye 6X6 Lost & Found Stack, Recollections Kraft card stock and scrap pink card stock. 

My card is a typical A2 sized card.  The Eiffel Tower was cut at 3 1/4 inch using black card stock from my scrap box.  The beautiful background paper is from My Mind's Eye.  My pink ribbon is actually some seam binding that I dyed using Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress stain.  I have to say I was impressed, it was super easy and this pic does it no justice.  It is a very pretty pink in person.  My sentiment is from K Andrew.  I stamped the sentiment is stamped in SU Regal Rose.
