Here are the projects that kept me busy!! (Minnie Mouse is an old picture, forgot to take a picture of the new one but it was exactly the same!!)

Today I made another of the gift box purses to take to my sister this week when we go to visit. She loves purple!
This was the easiest purse so far because I have perfected the technique some...first of all instead of cutting and measuring I made a template for the purse shape out of chip board and just traced it.
Second, I found a sizzix dye to use for the "pocket" on the front of purse so I don't have to measure, cut, score, and assemble my own version and I love it because it puts all the scores and cuts in one step Great when I am ready to mass produce some of these.
And finally, I bought a score board. Never thought I needed this tool but my goodness it is wonderful. I have already made envelopes on it and now I was able to score my box for the purse middle in seconds! All you do is cut your cardstock to size and score the sides at the correct dimensions in one swipe of the bone folder!! The sunglasses pattern and the tag came from Forever Young Cricut Cartridge...The pattterned paper and cardstock are Stampin Up.

I got carried away with vinyl projects last night! Actually they were on my to-do list and now I can cross them off but when I started, I just couldn't stop...hey as long as the deep cutting blade was in the machine right?
Anyway, I haved posted the keys of my front door before but I finally got the grey/silver vinyl to do the keyholes for teh opposite windows and I love the final effect. It makes for such a decorative entry way to our home.
I also got my pumpkins vinyl'd. I have had these pumpkins for a few years and put them on the porch but after getting hooked on my cricut and vinyl, I decided to dress these fellas up a bit this year. We have a new front porch this year, a park bench by the front door, and a railing so I can't wait to get festive out there!!
Today I wanted to share some of my husband's work with his cricut cake! We are trying to coordinate projects and have available complete party decorating packages. So far we have coordinated Olivia the Pig, Sesame Street, and Minnie Mouse. He is a pastry chef so his work is phenomenal. I love what he has come up with and could't wait to share! I do the banners, invitations, and centerpices and he does the cake/cupcake toppers!

Well that is because next weekend is my next workshop with my crafting pals! I cannot wait and in October and November we will be working on Christmas cards and projects. These are the 3 cards I came up with for next weekend. I love Christmas colors as much as fall colors which reminds me...In a little over a week and a half we will be taking a vacation to Tennessee to see some beautiful fall color! You would understand what a big deal that is for us when I tell you I live in Florida and we get nothing! Yes we get the sunshine year round but you still miss the beautiful changes in seasons. I think its been well over 20 years since I have seen a real fall so we are going to Pigeon Forge, have a beautiful cabin rented and CANNOT WAIT!
But first, I am going to have fun making these cards with the girls!!
