It's time for another Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesdays Challenge.  This week we are using Doodlecharms....with all the fun, new Cricut cartridges coming out it's easy to forget about this classic cart.  This one has something for every holiday and the cuts are very easy to assemble.

SVG Attic Design Team Day!

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I'm so excited to announce that I have joined the SVG Attic Design Team!  Jessica has some amazing files and I'm loving them all!

For my project today, I decided to cut the witches hat from the Happy Haunt Halloween Party Kit.  The web is from the What's Brewin set.

I used Echo Park Athopecary Emmporium paper and the ruffle is some crepe paper streamer that I gathered with the sewing machine.   I used Tim Holtz Soot distress ink for the edges.   This hat is so adorable and goes together in minutes.  You could easily make several of them really quickly.....or turn it upside down and make a fun treat holder.

Head on over to SVG Attic to see all the amazing files.

We have some great prizes for you today hosted by Scrappy Moms, Paper Issues and Me!

For my project today I made a fun "buggy" banner using the Country Drive Collection by Echo Park.

The banner is from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I love making these banners because the holes are punched and they go together very quickly.
