A House of Cards

Mini Monster Treat Pockets

Today for the Cricut Blog, I created some fun treat pockets using my Cricut Expression and Mini Monsters cartridge.

I used the Card Feature for both the goblin and pumpkin pockets, which made putting these pockets together quick and easy.

I also added a little tag on each, which would be great if you wanted to personalize them.

 I created multiples of each in a variety of Halloween patterned papers.

They would be great to pass out at a Halloween party or if you have a small number of kids that Trick-or-Treat in your neighborhood. 

The Cricut Blog has lots of fun, Halloween projects and ideas this month, so make sure to stop by and take a peek. 

Hope you are all off to a great week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

OA Product Pick: Flower Sack

Yesterday on the October Afternoon blog, they showcased the new Flower Sack die-cut embellishments.

They are soooo cute and fun to work with!  They have them for all of the new collections:  Sidewalks, Farmhouse, Sasparilla, and Holiday Style.

I have the Sidewalks Flower Sack (shown here), 

and here is what I created with it:

The butterflies and 'Fun Times' banner are from the Flower Sack.  I also used a Journaling Card, Buttons, 'Celebrate' pennant from the Little Fliers, and some twine from the Wrap Pack.  So quick and easy!

They are a perfect size for tags and cards, but are great for layouts and other projects too!

Head on over HERE for a chance to win some, and don't forget to check out what the other girls on the design team created using them.

Well, that's it for me today.  Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
