A couple of Cricut Cuts I Made for swaps...

My Little Glitter Bat

  • Used Hello Kitty Cart
  • Black & a purplish glitter paper from target. They are only $1 for two sheets & cut great.
  • Basic black card stock for the backing
  • Very important to use a quick dry glue like Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive when gluing together glitter paper. Also put a book or something on top of it while it drys a little or the pieces pop off.
 My Distressed Fence with a crow.

Cute little Bat & Pumpkin altered Paper clips

Sending these altered paper clips to my aunt as well to help raise money for her 3-day walk. These paper clips are great to use as bookmarks, embellishments on layouts, cards, gifts and my daughters favorite...as little puppets. She took two of the pumpkins when I finished those and had them talking to each other for about 5 minutes. My kids helped a little with these. Till they got distracted 10 minutes later...lol. Sorry for the bad pictures was using my camera on my phone.
