Halloween Placemats

My 5 yr. old  granddaughter and I made some Halloween placemats. Here are the results.
She had the idea of the haunted house center and I had the idea of the pumpkin center.
I got all the pieces cut out and she helped me adhere them onto the paper.
We made 8 placemats. My granddaughter wanted green and purple placemats.
I wanted Orange and purple placemats. It really was fun working together with her.
I really enjoyed helping her bring her ideas with the haunted house to life.


The doilies were made with the Martha Stewart Spider circle punch.
The center is a 12" circle and the corners were an 8" circle divided into 4 corner pieces.
The Large bat is an eksuccess bat punch (shown by the pumpkin).
The bats by the haunted house are from the Martha Stewart bat and EEK punch.
The witch on the broom is the Martha stewart witch punch.
The black cat is also a Martha Stewart Punch.
The pumpkins in the corner are from a Martha Stewart large border punch.
I cut the pumpkins out from that punch.
The Ghosts are from Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge (cut at 3").
The pumpkin is from Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge(cut at 5").
The haunted house is from the Monster Bash Cricut cartridge (cut at 5").
I used my Xyron Creatopia to laminate the placemats.

Zoo Layouts

Zoo Layouts
I made some layouts of our trip to a zoo. There are too many layouts to share all the directions too. I made the path going through the park so when you line up all 16 layouts that the path continues on from page to page. It looks really neat once you lay them out to see the full spread.


Cricut Cartridge - Animal Kingdom - goat, turtle, Dog
Cricut Cartridge - Easter 2010 - Bunny Cricut Digital Download - Monkey that I print and cut with the Imagine. Jolee's stickers - Peacock
Silhouette Cameo - ram and mountain goat
Cricut Cartridge - Create a Critter - grass and trees
Cricut Cartridge - Designer Calendar to weld a Calendar grid for the fencing.
Squares from the walking path are from the center of the fencing.

5" x 7" Embossing Folder Storage with matching Border

I recently got some of the Anna Griffin embossing folders and cricut embossing folders.
Some of these have matching borders to go with the 5"x7" folder.

I purchase several Really Useful Boxes 3L capacity. They work perfectly for storing these embossing folders. I created folder files in Cricut Craftroom design software. I used From my kitchen cartridge.

For the cuttlebug companions I numbered each file folder to coordinate with the companion embossing folder sets.

For the Anna Griffin embossing folders I put the name of the folder on the file tab.
These folders have the names of the embossing folder right on the folder.
Then in the file folder divider I made a pocket in back to hold the coresponding border folder.
I store other Cricut embossing folders with matching borders this same way.
I absolutely love these Really Useful Boxes!!
Happy Crafting!

My Granddaughter went through a phase where she just loves Monkey's and Puppies.
She still does love them. But, when she was 2 she had such a fascination with them.
She would say ahhh Monkey's and Puppies all the time. So I made up a layout of her with her Monkey and puppies.
I love the cute monkey face she made. It is just so cute!!
