Can you say Halloween!? Lots to see on those!
Cricut 3 Birds On Parade:
I am loving this cartridge full of this little bird! It's almost like a paper doll cartridge for the little blue bird! We have him dressed as a pilgrim, as a vampire, football player, etc., mostly using the seasons as a guide for his outfits. And, let me tell you, this cartridge also comes with the CUTEST word art ever!
About my card: I needed a graduation card and thought that putting a mini envelope on the front would be a convenient way to store a check. The bird itself is keeping the envelope closed. I added a graduation sentiment inside at the top. Paper is from October Afternoon, ribbon from Papertrey Ink.
Cricut Oct. 31 Cartridge (Fall Mini):
This window is cut at 4-3/4" and the storm is cut at 2-1/2" and mounted on a 5" x 7" card. Paper is from Basic Grey's Eerie collection.
These eyes remind me of Scooby Doo....I cut them at 1-3/4" and mounted on an A2 card. Paper is by Basic Grey.
All of these are cut at fit to page!
Love this gate - there is also a fence to go with it!
This cartridge is a single layer cartridge, typical of the mini size from Provocraft. This one is for the serious Halloween crafter who wants realistic images - no cartoony images here. All scary things! I cut a number of things before I decided on what to do. You can see them below. A word of advice - the more intricate images need to be cut LARGE. I tried to cut some of them smaller and it just didn't want to work.
Cricut Pumpkin Carvings (Fall Mini):
This is a great cartridge for those of you who like to carve pumpkins! You can cut these out with vinyl (or even paper and tape it on the pumpkin) and go to town! But, there are also some images that are perfect for cards....so, even if you don't carve pumpkins, there is something on here for you. Again, single layer images only.
This bat oval is cut at 3-1/2". It does not come with a background oval (since this is primarily for pumpkin carving) so I had to improvise. I got out the A Child's Year cartridge and used the oval on page 40 using the Tag feature key at 3-1/2" using the Real Dial Size. Then I trimmed a hair of it off. Paper from American Crafts.
Cricut H2O (Fall Mini):
In a similar style to the recently released Cricut Lite Block Party cartridge, this offers a retro look for your swim/water theme projects. Lots of people images on this cartridge with many little pieces. It appears you need to cut the "little piece" layers many times in different colors. Lots of word art on this also!
I cut this slide at 9" and the "water park" word art at 4". I like the layering on the slide! Paper from DCWV!
