My Cricut Craftroom's Fall Favorites Blog Hop!!


Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's Fall Favoites Blog Hop! This is a two day hop!
You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning.

I love fall! Halloween is one of my favorite times!  Today I am going to show you a couple of projects using the Cricut Cartridge Happy Hauntings. It is one of my favorite cartridges!!  I will show you a couple of the cuts and how I put them together.  Here is my first cut:   

This is the mummy from page 32.  I cut him out @ 4 1/2" of black paper first then I cut him out of green paper at 4 1/2" also cutting out the extra arm.  I added a foam pop dot to the extra arm. Next I chalked him around the edges with some black Stampin Up! chalk and added red stickles to his eyes. Here is the picture of  Mr. Mummy finished:

For my next cut I used the Witch on page 34 of  Happy Hauntings.
I cut her out at 4 3/4" from purple and black.  I actually cut the black 3 times to use her hair in different places.  I cut her face out of green cardstock, and the bottom of the broom in yellow.  I layered 1 black witch on top of the purple one, then cut the body, hair, and hat from another witch.  Added a pop dot to the body and the hat and glued on both cuts of hair to her.  I then used black chalk around her edges.  I used a white gel pen on her eye and red stickles too.  I'm really loving stickles!   Here is the finished witch:  
Please check back tomorrow and I will have both of my projects made into a 2 page layout.  Thanks for stopping by!!  Now on to your next stop! 

  In case you loose your way here is the complete hop list, Happy Hopping!!

Love your 3-d style images. I am going to try cutting three witches and layering them like you did since I didn't like how my witch cuts turned out nearly as much as yours. Thanks for the tips.

I was doing this witch on a card for my 16 year old grandson and it just didn't look right. So I googled "Cricut witch happy hauntings" and this post was one of the results. Your layering and shading suggestions made all the difference in the world. And I LOVE the music. I am finishing up the card and just grinning. THANK YOU!!
