September Blog hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars blog hop.  This month is when we start to see all the pumpkins and the change  of weather. I hope you enjoy hopping from one site to the other and see what we have to share.  So if your starting here just keep clicking on the link to get to the next blog and you will wind up back here when you saw all the wonderful creations.  

The  pumpkin above, I made about 2 years ago with the Cricut Artiste CTMH Cartridge.  I
cut it out and ran it through the Cuddlebug to give it that swirly texture.  I was made to hold chap stick or any other goodies.  This one is about 2 1/2 inches tall and the neat part about the Cricut is that you can make it any size you want.


Here is the sidestep card that we made at the Westminster Expo, what an Extra special weekend!
I promised I would give the directions. This card was made with a new paper pack called "Confetti Wishes" The ballons, scalloped circles and banner were all cut with the Cricut. The balloon were stamped with the stamp set that came with the Cricut cartridge, also the happy birthday was in the Cricut bundle.   I will be showing a Christmas version of this card on Sat, Sept 13 at our Annual Christmas Card Extravaganza  9:30-3:30. Seats still available. Call me to reserve your seat.  610 367-0188

Start with a card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2"

Now hop over to my friend Nancy and see what amazing thing she created.
