Cricut Circle Projects

Hi Everyone!

I thought I'd pop on and share a few of the projects I have recently made for the Cricut Circle Blog.

BEWARE Artpiece
Halloween is my very favorite holiday. I created this art piece using a frame purchased from IKEA. The background is spritzed with purple and black shimmer spray. I used my Cricut Expression, Happy Hauntings Cartridge, October 31st Cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook, and Winter Frolic Cartridge to create the spooky scene.

I felt like the frame needed "something else" so I cut out several small Halloween shapes, then stitched them together for a fun Halloween-themed garland.
