So, a few months back, I started submitting some projects to Cricut magazine. I have been a Cricut owner for many, many years, but like so many, it can go under utilized for weeks or months at a time. Well, enter Cricut Magazine, published monthly by Northridge Publishing. I picked up the March 2011 issue and was blown away by all the cool stuff that some very talented ladies were doing with their Cricuts. It was just the inspiration I needed to dust off my bug and get to creating. I will admit that it was a bit strange creating for fall and winter holidays in the spring time, but I created some little treat bags using my Mini Monsters cartridge, took a photo, emailed them off to the magazine for consideration. I was beyond thrilled that they were picked up for the October issue.
So, several months pass, the weather turned cooler and one Saturday afternoon I am running my marathon errands and stop into Hobby Lobby. I saw the October issue of Cricut magazine and was surprised to see my monster treat bags gracing the cover.
The projects were pretty simple to put together- using the Mini Monsters cartridge, I cut the treat bags and layers from some Papertrey Ink cardstock. I embossed the layers for some added dimension.
I am looking forward to receiving my issues of this magazine- this one will have to get a place of honor in the craft cave!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy and safe Halloween!
