Nevermore Halloween Display Tray

Create a Spooky Halloween Display Tray...then switch it up for Thanksgiving...and then - Christmas!

This great CTMH Display Tray is so versatile.  I used the Nevermore Paper Pack and LOTS of Cricut cuts to create this great Halloween home decor.  I can hardly wait to make another one for Thanksgiving using the beautiful fall colors of the Sangria Papers - and then another with the festive Christmas papers in White Pines!  Be sure to come back and check them out!

(Ghirardelli Chocolate) Pumpkin Favor - CTMH Artiste

I Love this cute little Pumpkin Favor - and it was so quick to put together! 

This little cutie was cut using the CTMH Artiste Cartridge at 6.8" and 2 Ghirardelli Chocolates will fit in sideways. I embossed it and sponged the edges to make it pop.  For the "Stem" I used Burlap Ribbon from Target's $1 section.  You will find the product list and cut sizes below.  These would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table setting!  
I want to thank the ladies from the CricutWithHeart Blog for posting this creative inspiration on Pinterest!

Know anyone with a New Home? Check out this card!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you had a FANTASTIC 3-Day Weekend!  I've been in my craft room working on some cards and I wanted to share one with you.  It is a 5"x 7" (my preference) Card for a friend who just purchased a new home.

I started with a 10" x 7" piece of white Card stock for the base then scored and folded it in half.  The Mat Layer is cut from GLACIER Cardstock at 4.9" x 6.8" - or just cut a 5" x 7" and trim a bit off the sides to have the white showing as a small border.  Next, cut  another layer of white at about 4.6" x 5.1" (or eyeball this as well.  

For the Starburst layer - you can select 3-4 prints of paper of your choice - or use up some of those 2" scraps that we all tend to save.  You'll want to cut them as shown in the left picture below, and randomly layer them as shown on the right.  Make sure the corner pieces are long enough to reach to the corner.

It's okay for the pieces to hang off the edge - You're going to snip those overhanging pieces off flush with the edge anyway.
Next, layer the base, glacier mat, and sunburst layer.  
Welcome Tag:
This tag is cut with the CTMH "Artistry" Cartridge.  I LOVE this cartridge and can see myself using it for all sorts of cards.  If you don't have it - please shop with me.  You can even getting it digitally at a lower cost and have immediate access!

The layers are as follows:
Shape:   #M416DFB  page 26 - Cut left version of "SHAPE" only.  
             1 each of 2.3"   2.6"   and  3.23"  Note:  Largest layer is Embossed.
Banner:  #M4184959  3/4"
For the Paper, I used the gorgeous papers from the Zoe Paper Pack and also the new GOLD Glitter Paper in the new Annual Inspirations.  

I used Dimensionals to pop up the Shape and some Gold thin thread around the base.  The cute Gold Buttons are these awesome Bling Gems that I use a LOT!

The Stamps I used are A1179 Housewarming Hello and C1596 Happy Hexagons.
The Sentiment was stamped in Saffron and traced with a glitter pen.

I hope you enjoy the card.  PLEASE like and leave a comment.  Your COMMENTS mean SO MUCH TO ME!!!!

Have a great week!
