A little Seasonal Soiree

Hello and hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend. I got to spend Saturday in my craft room since my hubby was refereeing volleyball tournaments and got to play with a couple new cartridges.  Today I am sharing a couple cards from the Anna Griffin Seasonal Soiree .  When I got the email from Cricut this week I decided to buy it digital and I had a $5 off so made it better.  The only thing I can say I dislike about this cartridge is that the manual online does not give you the sizes to cut like most of the cartridges do.  This first card and envelope I am sharing is on the Make It Now so it was already sized for you. I did use the Cricut Explore for these cards.  This is the Pumpkin card which would make a great invitation too.  I used CTMH cardstock and some stickles.  I also cut out the bat and spider to add to it.  I really like the Make It Now projects and you can complete them quickly and still add your own touches. 

This next card is the Bat Invitation.  I plan on using it for my niece in her treat bag.  I love how the fine details cut perfectly.  I played around till I sized this the way I wanted it, but forgot to write down the size.  I will have to get better with that lol.  I just used a stamp in my collection.  I used some silver and gray papers from Michaels.  I really like this cartridge and got my eye on a couple more.  I finally got all my cartridges on my Gypsy linked, so now I am happy!!!!  Join me on Thursday and I am going to show you a project with the Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch cartridge.  I love it!!!!
