Cricut Figures

CLICK HERE to win the Cindy Loo cartridge! I just need 8 more followers!!

The Cricut vinyl figures are so cute and a perfect addition to a craft room. I thought one would look cute next to my E2. There's several different colors, I think there's 11 colors. And almost any color would look good in my scraproom except the blue one. I'm not a big fan of blue. Sooooo guess what color vinyl figure I get????? Thats right! The blue one!

He looks purple in the picture but he's blue. And so I am! Not sure I'm going to try for another one. When you order them they just send a random color and I sure don't want another blue one.

WINNER of Winter/Christmas blog hop

CLICK HERE to win the Cindy Loo cartridge! We only need 11 more followers and I can give this great cartridge away.

Thank you all for stopping by during the blog hop. We had so much fun hopping along with you all. All the ladies had such great projects. I'm sure we'll all be busy this holiday season recreating some of the things we've seen on the hop. I know I have several projects in mind, I think the Cricut ornament is first on my list. I have a Christmas tree in every room of my large Victorian home except my scraproom. So this would be a good start towards decorating it.

The winner of the blog candy is :  LISA G

Welcome to the Winter/Christmas Themed Blog Hop celebrating our favorite time of the year. This Blog Hop is hosted by the very talented Paulette, from Around the Bock with Scrapalette. You should have arrived here from the very talented Lisa's blog at Addicted to the Cricut. If you've come upon our hop in the middle please make sure you start at the beginning of the hop at We have very talented ladies in our hop today so make sure you check them all out. 

My project today is a home decor wall hanging. 
I love vintage papers and they fit very well in my old Victorian home. They also go well with the old pictures I used of my husbands family at Christmas when he was young. 

 I used Cosmo Cricket Bare Naked Lacing cards and covered them with Cosmo Cricket's Be Good paper line. I ran all papers thru my Xyron to get complete coverage of the adhesive. I don't like the edges working up over time and with all of my Xyron adhesives, they have complete coverage.
I also used Cosmo Crickets Bare Naked Ornaments made of chipboard. They are so easy to cover with precut paper ornaments that I ran thru the Xyron and adhered to the chipboard ornaments.

 I like things pretty simple so I kept the design very simple. I inked the edges of all the pieces with ColorBox Dunes chalk ink. I used pearl gems to highlight the candy cane, star and ornament. I used gold Crinkle Ribbon, which I LOVE, on the top picture to go thru the "Joy" metal slide. In the picture it's hard to tell but I used a soft green to tie a knot in the star and gold Crinkle ribbon for the ornament. The soft green was also used to tie the chipboard cards together and I left extra on the top as a loop to hang it from.
 I love giving away blog candy so here's a few treats. A Christmas 8x8 paper pack  and a matching cardstock paper pack. Red and clear rhinestones and a sweet little Happy Holidays stamp set and red twine. All you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment on this post. Please leave a way for me to contact you. I will pick a winner Monday, Nov. 7.  Also make sure you go to the top of this post and leave a comment on the Cindy Loo cartridge give away. 

 Make sure you go to Nancy's blog next at

Here is the complete blog hop list so you can visit everyone and see all the wonderful projects.

Winner of Halloween blog hop candy

CLICK HERE to win the Cindy Loo cartridge!

Good Morning everyone. I meant to pick the winner of the Halloween blog hop last night but it was trick or treat in our town. So we had lots of cute trick or treaters at our door. And some not so cute ones. It's just my opinion but, if your bringing your kids trick or treating than you, yourself are to old to trick or treat. We had at least 2 dads that weren't dressed up that were asking for candy with bag in hand.

Well, enough of my ranting, lets get to the real reason we're here. The winner of the blog candy for Halloween blog hop. Out of 22 comments and followers the winner is:
