My Craft Spot Challenge #159 - Thanksgiving/Fall

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend :) Are you getting ready for Black Friday shopping?? I know I am :) It's time for another fun challenge at My Craft Spot. The theme this week is Thanksgiving/Fall. Play along for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to shop at MCS.


So today, I'm sharing my very first project using my new Cricut Explore!! Woohoo!! It was so much easier to use than I feared and it cut perfectly. I was happy to discover that I retained quite a bit from using my Gypsy, so I could pick up what I needed in Design Space. I still have so much to learn, but for my first project, I'm happy :) I've rediscovered my love for Cricut :) My first project was to cut the Curvy Box file from My Craft Spot. You can find the file HERE, and it's currently on sale!!


The papers for this box are from Basic Grey. The label is a MCS Ornate Labels die. The sentiment is from the Fall Leaves stamp set. It was heat embossed in snow white embossing powder. MCS Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon was used and MCS Ivory Twine was threaded through the button.


The papers for this box are from K&Company. Another MCS Ornate Labels was used for the sentiment from the Fall Leaves stamp set. MCS Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon was used and MCS Ivory Twine was threaded through the button for this one, too.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art Linky Party - Anything Goes
  2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it off Saturday
  3. Decorate to Celebrate - Anything Goes
  4. Jo's Scrap Shack Fun-Day Friday - Thanksgiving
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to My Craft Spot to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Thanksgiving/Fall projects...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  7. Your first projects are fabulous and fun! I look forward to seeing more projects using the new crafty goody. I have been considering purchasing a cutting machine but have been unsure which one. It is encouraging knowing that the Cricut is working well for you!

    Thanks for sharing your first Cricut project! They are super cute!

  18. My sweetest friend, your boxes are gorgeous! (I will soon be playing with this file, too! YAY!) I'm delighted you're enjoying your new Cricut! These machines are so easy to master these days, so I knew you'd pick everything up in a breeze. :o) Your papers are gorgeous and simply perfect for the holiday! The floofy bows are gorgeous and I love how you used the sentiments! The Ornate Label dies are so versatile and they fit these so beautifully. The twinkly accents are the loveliest touches of Autumnal sparkle. :o) Wonderful projects as always, my dearest Lisa! Have a happy night!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen
