My last post for PPBN Designs Blog

Welcome to my blog. Today I am doing my last post for PPBN Designs blog, but not the last thing I make with their great svgs. I will be stepping away from some of the design teams and doing a few projects and taking care of things at home.  Sometimes we get too busy and life passes you by!!!  I will be posting but not as regular for a little while.  Today I have created a layout using the Trick or Treat kit.  Love this one and it is so easy to use.  My pattern papers are just some scraps and the cardstock is from Bazzill.  I also used my Cricut Explore.  Stop by PPBN Designs and check out these and all the other great designs they have.

Tuesday Daily Project at Exploring Cricut and More

Today I am sharing this quick and easy card I created with the Cricut Explore and the new Summer Soirees cartridge and the Small Talk and Frames. I made this card a 5 x 7 and it is called the Fiesta Folded Card.  I love all the details in this card and used a saying from Small Talk and Frames.  I think I will make a few of these and keep them on hand.  This machine is awesome for these intricate cuts.
