And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team! This prize will be given if there are 10 entries or more. 

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Here is my project: 

This was actually an easy project to complete. You do need to use an iron on stabilizer to cut with the Cricut and a brand new blade. I used Plantin Schoolbook Roly Poly font for "FALL", and Designer Calendar for the pumpkin and leaves. The simpler the image, the better! I fused the cuts to a piece of muslin, then zig zag stitched everything on. I wished I had used clear monofilament thread for all of the pieces instead of just the green. No changing colors all the time! I can make a mini flag, a pillow, a tote bag, etc.

Thanks for visiting!

You are so Kind!

November is Thanks/Be Thankful theme at Die Cut Diva's, and our wonderful sponsors are-

And here is my project:

I love using my Cricut backgrounds for my images! Such a cute image, too! I did use a new-to-me product called Amplify, by Neon. You add the liquid where you want it, then hit it with the heat tool to make it puff! Be careful, because you can overheat it and discolor it. It comes in a lot of different colors.  Here is a list of materials I used:
  1. Image: Fancy Sunbonnet-Winter birds (Bugaboo stamps), colored with Copics.
  2. Die: Snowflake Overlay (Cricut Access, Photo Fun Holiday Memories).
  3. Stamp: Carnation 2014 Greenhouse Society  (Technique Tuesday), Versafine Onyx ink.
  4. Embellishments: White Neon Amplify, white sequins.
  5. Paper: white cardstock (Neenah), green patterned paper (Creative Memories).
Thanks for visiting!
