Happy Halloween!

Just a quick share today! A very sweet little girl I know, is going to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for Halloween this year. I made these little treat baskets for her to take to her friends at school. I filled them with lots of awesome $1 stuff from Target's awesome dollar bins! They were SO thrilled with everything in the basket!

I used the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls to create Dorothy and a template from Papertrey Ink for the basket. I am SO happy with how they turned out!!

Epic Six Exclusive Die!!

This is the Epic Six Exclusive die that you can get only by purchasing the Epic Six machine before October 31st! It's a 6" cookie cutter die. I will be honest and tell you that I sold my die on ebay for $59 which is almost how much I paid for the machine! What a deal!

If you have been thinking about purchasing the Epic Six machine, NOW is the time to do it!
If you want the exclusive die you MUST ORDER BY OCTOBER 31, 2009!

Free True Type Fonts to use with SCAL...

I recently came across a couple of AMAZING true type fonts that I would love to share with you!! They both come from the author of the blog Clever Someday. She's extremely talented and very generous because she shares her fonts for FREE!!

The first one is called Punch Dings. You can download it from her blog HERE.

The second one is called 09 Kut ups. It is probably my favorite font because of all of the scalloped shapes! Love it!! You can download it HERE.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Clever Someday blog because there are lots of freebie files and some great info on Cricut and SCAL!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a GREAT day!!

Fireman Birthday Card with Everyday Paper Dolls

I am LOVING my Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge for my Cricut!! I am working on hand drawing my faces and this is one of the first ones I have done.

I honestly didn't think that I could draw the faces onto the dolls and have them come out right, but Scrappin Cricut has a tutorial on how to draw them HERE and it made it SO easy! Thanks Scrappin Cricut!

Well that's about it for today!
Have a great weekend!
