Update: This is now SOLD OUT.
What could say "Happy Halloween" better than a brand new layout? I know you Cricut nuts speak my language, right? And everyone else must think I'm crazy!!!

This layout is created entirely with A Child's Year cartridge - still one of my absolute favorite carts. So if you don't have this cart yet - GET IT!!! :)

Sorry, this is now SOLD OUT.
This is available as a kit only, and is an *extremely* limited edition with only 16 available. That's it! And I will not be teaching this in a class, so don't wait for it to pop up on my schedule. And as an added Halloween treat, I'm even introducing it a temporarily reduced price of $20/kit. Shipping should only be about $5 in the US for this one.

The kit will include all of the materials you need to complete the project such as patterned papers, cardstock, buttons, and even pre-cut photo mats. Plus my detailed, yet easy to follow directions with my Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut on your bug with all of the settings.
So you'll just need your Cricut (Expression preferred just because of the small size of the title letters), A Child's Year cart, some charcoal or black chalk ink, pop dots, mini glue dots, white gel pen and basic tools.

To order your kit, just email me at before they disappear!

If you're trying to enter the blog candy contest, be sure to leave a comment on the next post - it won't count for the drawing if you leave it here, but I do love for you to say hello anywhere you like!!

Wanna win one of my Cricut layout kits? Two people will win one kit each, and you'll have your choice between the "Boo Crew" layout which uses the original Paper Doll Dress Up cart (plus HK font or any font for the title), or you can pick the "Forever Adore" layout which uses the Home Decor cartridge. Each kit includes all of the materials you need to complete the project (paper, cardstock, etc) plus detailed directions with color photos and my Cricut Cut Chart which shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut on your machine with all of the settings. Each kit is valued at $25, and I will pay for the shipping within the US (or will pay half shipping if outside of the US).

For a chance to win, just post a comment here, and be sure to leave your email address if you're an anonymous poster - so I can contact you if you win. And/or you can leave a comment on my thread on the Cricut messageboard:
PLUS if I get to 450 followers by Sunday night at midnight, I'll add a third kit as another prize!!! Monday morning, I will draw 2 (or 3) random winners from all entries. So if you comment here AND on the messageboard, you'll double your chances to win, but please submit only one entry per location. And be sure to tell your friends about the giveaway so we can try to hit the 450 mark in time.

If you would like a third entry, just post about this giveaway with a link on your blog, and then you can enter a third time (either here or on messageboard), but be sure to mention it in your third entry.

If you've ever wondered what one of my classes is like, or how crazy my house looks with 20+ Cricut frenzied ladies, these pics are for you. (I recommend clicking on each set of pics to see them at a decent size.) My dear hubby took these at last week's Wild Card class. We had 20 ladies, plus Wendy and myself. Wendy is shown with me in the first set of pictures, and she is my dear sweet friend and partner in crime. She helps me make kits and assists in classes. Thanks, Wendy - you rock!!!

I teach about 1 class per week in Rocklin, California, but also ship kits all over. For more information on classes or kits, you can email me at

Here are 8 T-Shirts that I have recently decorated with the help of my Cricut and some fabric paint. I'll be doing a T-Shirt class for you locals on Thursday, October 22nd, but will not be able to make kits for shipping. If you're local, you can contact me at to sign up or get more info. Class fee is $25, and you'll get to make 2 shirts of your choice. These 8 are to give you ideas, but you're also welcome to come up with your own ideas and I'll help you make them. Be sure to see the post below this one to see all of the shirts. Have a t-riffic day, haha!
