Faith's 3rd Birthday Treat Bags

I made these for my granddaughter 3rd birthday party.  Her theme was My Little Kitty and Halloween.  She love these treat bags that I made for her.

I use the Cricut Hello Kitty cartridge to make all the characters on the tags.
The witch and cat were cut at 3 inches.
The bat and pumpkins were for the boys and cut at 1 3/4 inches.
I stamped Happy Birthday with SU  ink: then trimmed around with Fiskar decorated scissors and inked around them with the same pink as the stamp.
The back banner was DCWV Halloween card stock cut at 4 x 51/2 inches.
The bags were filled with toys and candy.

These turned out so cute and Faith loved them.  But they sure had lots of pieces to put together.  But the smile on her face made it all worth it.

Paper Cutz Challenge

Good Morning Talented Crafty Friends,

Wow does Paper Cutz Challenge have a great challenge this week and for even a better cause.  Breast cancer awareness is something every women should be aware of and get there yearly mammograms.  Early detection is the key to curing the disease. 

This week the challenge at PCC is:  "In the Pink" As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so to help promote this worthy cause, let's make a card, LO or craft project for Breast Cancer Awareness month using PINK and any other colors you'd like.

This week I made a layout for the challenge.

Here is some closer photos of the great digis that I used.

I got this digi from Little Scraps of Heaven isn't he the cutest little way to think pink  I cut some black paper and layered it some bright pink and used my Fiskar corner punch to accent the paper.

From the first time that I seen this digi I knew I had to use it.  She is great for getting the message out.  To Save the Boobies.  I got this great digi from Jen's Digi Stamps.  I colored her with my gel pens and I use pink embossing to accent the sign.  I also use black and pink paper to help make it stand out.

I cut the word survivor from the cartridge Printing Press at 1.40inches.  The picture holders are cut at 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The corners are punched with a punch that will allow the pic to slide in under them.  I cut the tag from so bright green paper and add the pink ribbon with all the colors in the page.  I think it turned out great and cute. 

Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope to see your project in our challenge this week at Paper Cutz Challenge

Have a fabulous day.

Here is my card:

I made this then realized there was only certain colors to use.  My mistake.  But he turned out cute.  He is a digi stamp I got as a freebie from the Paper Squirrel I colored him with glitter pens.  Added a little pumpkin button for him to hold.  Not sure of the papers I got from my niece.  Added a wavy ribbon with a little clothes pin on it .  The sentiment is a from a package I got at Micheal's. Added some orange buttons tied with some tan string.  Other that the mess up of using some colors that were not in the challenge I really liked this card. 

I hope to see your challenge this week at PCC.  I know that you will use the colors.  Have a great day.

Inking It Up Crazy World Card Day

Hi Crafter.
Today is World Card Day and Inking It Up Crazy is having a challenge every hour from 9 to 5.  Today.
So if you would like to join go to her blog Inking It Up Crazy for all the fun and wonderful card makers who are helping Kassidy today.  For my challenge it is a pink, black and white card.

Here is my card:

I made this card with the Cricut cartridge Christmas which I got on my gypsy.
I cut it at 5 1/2 inches.
I used the flip button and welded it on my gypsy.
Then added a pearl gem in the center of the card.
The card basic is a shining black that came from Walmart.
The pink and white paper is from DCWV.
I used the piece from around the pink paper and put inside of the card as a decoration.
It turned out great. 

I hope that you all have fun today and get lots of inspiration from these talented ladies.
