SUPERMAN Cupcake Holder

I just got the Superman Cricut cartridge in my mail a few days ago and saw that it made these really cute cupcake holders. Since I am working on a custom Superhero order I thought they would be perfect for her son's party.

To cut the cupcake holder I decided to try it at "fit to page" on a 12x12 mat and it was perfect!! Now when you cut out the building and details make sure you turn off the fit to page feature and cut those out at 11 1/4" (same as the holder). This will fit perfectly.

If you have any questions on creating this cupcake holder using the Superman Cricut Cartridge please feel free to contact me.

1st Imagine Card: Best Friends

OK, here is my first card using only my Cricut Imagine. It's sort of an odd size card (4 1/4" x 7") but it's super cute!! I used the Nursery Tails cartridge along with textured white Bazzill cardstock. I really am liking the textured cardstock with the cut-outs.

BOO! Banner

Thank you so much for waiting! Here is the BOO banner I have been working on. I am super happy with they way it turned out. This looks so cute in person!!

To create the banner portion of this project I used the TAG feature on page 46 from ONCE UPON A PRINCESS. The main banner was cut out at 4 1/2". When I went to cut the inner tag (the shift feature) it was way to small for what I wanted so I ended up cutting those out at 5". I then created the paper flower using two strips of 2" x 12" of pattern paper. These where accordion folded and attached together to make one long strip. I simply connected the two ends together and pushed them down to create the pleated flower. I found this idea on someones blog but I can't seem to find it. If anyone wants a tutorial on this I will see if I can make a video of one.

Next I cut out the word BOO in black at 4" using the STORYBOOK cartridge. Also the shadow at 4" using a olive green cardsock. To make my letters sparkle I covered the black letters in Martha Stewart's Black Onyx fine glitter. LOVE this stuff!! Finally I attached it all together added a couple of bows from some fun ribbon from Michales and it was done!!

Happy Haunting,

Halloween Night Card

It's getting close to that time of year, HALLOWEEN!! To honor my favorite holiday I will be showcasing a Halloween project every Friday from now until the Friday before Halloween. If you have any spooky requests please send them to with the subject stating "Halloween Request". I will do my best to get in each and every request granted.

My first Halloween project is this fun gate fold card using the Cricut cartridge, Mini Monsters. I love how this card came out! I am not sure the pictures do it justice.

The base of this card is a 5 1/2" by 12" piece of cardstock. It is then scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10" using my Scor-Pal. Once scored and folded this will be your standard A2 size card. Then I cut out 4 pieces of pattern paper at 1 3/4" x 5 1/4". The center pattern paper is cut out 3 3/4" x 5". The the white cardstock which I cut out at 3 1/4" x 4 3/4". Last my cute skeleton is cut out at 4" using my Cricut. Put everything together and you have a cute Halloween card ready to give to a teacher, friend or family.

Happy Halloween!
