Holidays Through the Year Iron on Cartridge (Happy Thanksgiving Banner)
Celebrate with Flourish (Scare Crow)
Card Stock: Recollections
Pattern Paper: American Crafts: Pumpkin Patch
The banner was cut at 2.5 inches. I used clear contact paper to lift it off the mat and place it on the paper. This contact paper was not real sticky so I was able to glue the banner down and lift the contact paper. Scare Crow was cut at 3 inches.

Anna Griffin Card

Cricut Explore Machine
Anna's Flourish Cards and Embellishments Cartridge
Recollection Card Stock
Black Pen
This card uses the writing feature of the software. This cartridge has sentiments that can be written on the paper before it is cut out. Love the way this machine cuts the card stock. The design above the sentiment was also written and then I colored in parts of the design.

Wicked Halloween Card

Cricut Explore Machine
Creepy Critters digital cartridge
Cardstock: Recollections
This is a Make It Now Project and makes a standard A2 size card.
It will cut and score your card base for you but I just cut a black piece of card stock  
in half and scored it myself. Saves paper that way.  I didn't have silver glitter paper so I used
shiny silver paper instead. It goes behind the flourishes and the word wicked.
