Happy Halloween!

Here are some Spooky Treats!!!

Alice in Wonderland Mini and Introducing....

Mila!  Hello Everyone! My name is Mila, but you may know me as M&M on the Cricut boards. I am so excited to be part of the SweetSassyDiva design team! I started scrapbooking after I had my son and noticed time was just flying by. I was trying to find a way to preserve our family's memories and stumbled upon scrapbooking about 3 years ago. My inspiration is my family, most of all my son. I would say that my scrapbook style is more towards the grunge vintage look, but I love all sorts of techniques and styles. Scrapbooking to me is my relaxation time, it is my time to unwind and have fun. I just love being able to be creative while preserving memories. I work full time during the day as a Database Manager and devote every free second of my time to my son. Once my son goes to bed it is play time for mommy. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 5 years; we have the most wonderful German shepherd named Marro, who was of course our first child before we had our amazing, very active son. I love being a mom and see my son's eyes light up when he learns something new. I use several techniques in my projects, as well as try to incorporate my Cricut and Sizzix Big Shot into all of my work. One thing you might notice is that I am addicted to Graphic 45 paper. I love to do all sorts of projects, from 12 x 12 layouts to mini albums, putting layouts on canvas, frames, and altering different items.

Happy Halloween Everyone! This is a mini album I made for my son using the paper collection by Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland. It is so cute!! I just love it!! I glimmer misted all of the pages with Old Lace glimmer mist by Tattered Angels. This is one of my favorite, most used mist. It is almost clear with just a hint of glimmer. Enjoy!

-Tim Holtz Baroque Die
-Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge
-Fabulous Finds Cricut Cartridge
-Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge
-October 31 Cricut Cartridge
-Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland 8x8 Pad
-Tim Holtz Ornate Plate
-Prima Bling in Black Pearl
-Prima Mini Roses
-Prima Lace
-Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist: Wheat Fields and Old Lace
-Crafty Secrets Alice in Winderland Stamp Set
-Crafty Secrets Halloween Stamp Set
-Tim Holtz Odds and Ends Stamp Set

The first thing i did was cut out 6 pieces of medium weight chipboard and colored the end of each edge with black acrylic paint by Claudine Hellmuth. Then i took the pattern paper and cut that with the baroque die by Tim Holtz as well. For the front cover I used an ornate plate by Tim Holtz and alcohol inked it in black (all of the metal embellishments are inked with black alcohol ink). Next I used a stamp by Crafty Secrets, cut out some of the pattern paper, and of course it could not be complete with out some Prima bling and flowers.

For the second page i used a clear frame I got at Michaels as a pocket to hold some tags. The tags are from the Happy Hautings Cricut Cartridge and they are cut at 3.5"H x 2.47"W

For this next page i used my Cricut Expression and the October 31 Cricut Cartridge ( I just love this cartridge). I cut out the image twice, once the whole image and then the next one i cut out out using the hide / contour feature, then used distress stickles. I used Tim Holtz distress ink on the leaves. I cut the image at 2.01"H x 5.00"W, I cut the tags at 3.5'H x 3.29"W.

The next two pages are pretty simple, I used the Happy Hanutings cartridge to cut out two frames. On the first one i used distress stickles over it and cut it at 4.97"H x 3.64"W, the second one I used Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint, cut it out at 3.84"H x 4.23"W.

This was a page I used my most favorite Cricut cartridge of all time... Sentimentals. It is an envelope pocket to hold some tags and pictures. I cut it out at 2.33"H x 6.31"W
This next page is so super simple, i loved the paper so much i did not want to cover it, so I used another acrylic frame i got from Michaels, it is the Recollections brand.

This next page is very interesting and I just love it. It is a mini album within a mini album. I cut out all of these little playing cards from the collection and then made them into a mini album to hold journaling and photos. I cut out the little tabs using the Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge. I cut the little tabs at .36"H x .84"W.
This page is for some tags, I cut out the spider web using the Happy Haunting cartridge. The web was cut at 3.59"H x 3.07"W.This is another page that I used the Sentimentals Cricut Cartrige on, I cut out this file folder at 3.95"H x 6.89"W

The last page I used the Cricut cartridge October 31 and i cut this piece at 3"H x 4.63"W. I then backed it with some black cardstock so that the words would really show.

Here's the gypsy cut file:

Imagine Halloween Layout!

Imagine Halloween Layout and Introducing...

Jasmine!  My name is Jasmine Wilmany. I am a stay at home mom with two girls. My husband travels a lot for his job, so I use that time to craft the night away! My favorite hobby is painting flowers on canvas with oil paints. I also love paper piecing and journaling. Journaling is like a cross between a diary and a scrapbook and it feels good to preserve moments in my life. I started using Photoshop sixteen years ago and haven't stopped since. I use it almost everyday. I haven't made much time for them, but I also play piano and guitar. Crafting is such a wonderful way to bring out the happiness of life and sharing it with others.


Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge: Haunted House

Disney Happily Ever After Cartridge: Frame for Photo
Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge: Trees
Designer Calendar Cartridge: Halloween title
Cricut Imagine
Patterned Paper

I used the Cricut Imagine on the cut mode and cut out the pieces using patterned paper.  You could also do this using your cricut if you do not have the Imagine.  Then, I used a spooky font for the quick journaling and found a spiderweb image on the internet to use as the background in Photoshop.

Halloween Waterfall Card and Introducing......

Kristin!  I'm 25 years old. I'm a music teacher by trade, and a cake decorator as a side job. I've been married for a little over then a year, and we have two babies (of the four legged variety), a Yorkie named Bella and a 6th month old adorable mutt we rescued named Dixie. I am actually fairly new to papercrafting. I bought the Cricut Cake for myself as soon as it came out to help with my small cake decorating business. I fell in love with my machine, and it made me think about what all of the papercrafting Cricuts could do. Last spring, my rural school district decided to eliminate their music program due to budget cuts, therefore leaving ME out of a job. I needed something to do with all of my newfound free time, so I bought a used Baby Bug from a friend, and my obsession with papercrafting was born.

I started my blog, The Crafty Kitchen, over the summer as a place to share my Cricut Cake and paper Cricut projects. I can't believe in this short amount of time I have almost 150 followers! I absolutely love my new found passion, and I can't wait to share some of my projects with you on SweetSassyDiva :)

October 29, 2010


I created this Pink and Brown layout.  As I do not have the Pink Journey cartridge, I created a similar layout using Home Decor.  You could easily use this layout for a breast cancer survivor or any type of illness.  I used it for my darling daughter and I will also make one for my darling son.  We went through a lot of fertility treatments and years of wanting these little miracles.  First we hoped and prayed for a miracle.  Thankfully we received our little miracles.

The flowers match perfectly with the butterfly that I created on the Imagine.  I created a rose out of satin ribbon and used it as the dot over the 'i' in miracle.  The flowers and the leaves were hand inked to match the butterfly.  I also added some glitter to the flowers and they are even still wet in the photo.  They are a little glossy but, as they dry it will add a beautiful glisten.  The centers are glittered brads.  I used some beautiful gems to bling the scalloped and flourished frame that I matted my daughter's photo.  She is even blinged out in her beautiful dress.  Each piece has beautiful flourishes that give it a very graceful feel.

I cut out the shadow feature in a rich brown.  On the frame, I used the hide contour feature on the Gypsy and even flipped and rotated the image on the mat.  So, I used the Imagine, Gypsy and the Expression on this layout.  I love to use my 12"x24" mat and on this layout I placed the shadow cuts on one side and the intricate cuts on the other side of the 12"x24" mat.  This looks so beautiful in person in the pale pink and brown.  I will do another one in chocolate and blue for my son.

You should see this in person!  It is so beautiful and the rose has such beautiful folds and dimension.
I have a few layouts that I have saved in my Gypsy and hope to someday have a pink expression to make them with the Pink Journey solution cartridge.  However, I do love how this turned out and has a similar flair and feel.  This also reminds me that I need to be there for my little ones!  This includes taking care of myself, doing my monthly exams and scheduling my mamogram!  Sadly, my cousin is going through breast cancer and I HOPE they find a cure!

Weren't those projects wonderful yesterday!  I have some more introductions today of SweetSassyDiva Designers.  They are sharing some wonderful projects with us! I hope you are all as excited as I am and I know they are too. Please share your love with them. 

Pretty in Pink Layout and Introducing....

Jamie!  I a mommy to one 9 month old baby girl, Jayden, wife to one wonderful man, Adam and we have a rott puppy, Sweetums! I am originally from WA state and currently live in Cheyenne, WY. I own my own photography business and have a studio in my basement where I love to take pictures of my baby. I've been scrapbooking for over 5 years and just recently (within the last 3 months) discovered the wonderful world of card making. All of my free time goes to my paper crafting! I love to scrap! Aside from paper crafts and photography, I love music, Disney everything, watching movies, traveling, animals, history, science, games, swimming, and all sorts of other stuff! I am very grateful to be a member of the SweetSassyDiva Design Team and I cannot wait to share my projects and make new friends!


1 - 12x12 pink diamond patterned paper (mine is from the Paper Studio "the basics" 180 paper pack)
1 - 12x12 light pink with red heart pattered paper (mine is from Me & My Big Ideas "value paper pad")
1 - 8.5x11 light pink sheet of cardstock (from Recollections cardstock "Butterfly Wings")
1 - 8.5x11 medium pink sheet of cardstock (from Recollections cardstock "Butterfly Wings")
Once Upon A Princess (Cricut cartridge)
Accent Essentials (Cricut cartridge)
Tulle - mine was white and approx. 5x2 inches (any color would work)
1 - needle
1 - piece of thread, mine was white (any color would work) approx. 5 inches long
1 - light pink ink pad
pink glitter
ATG gun (any adhesive you use will work"
Zig glue pen (fine tip)
foam double sided tape


Pink & red heart pattered paper:
Using Once Upon A Princess: cut out the letters "P, P, I" at 1.5 inches and the letters "r, e, t, t, y, i, n, n, k" at 1 inch (to spell out "Pretty In Pink"

Using Accent Essentials: cut out "Accent #48" at 6.5 inches and "Accent #47" at 2.5 inches

Light pink cardstock:

Using Once Upon A Princess: cut out "Dancer-s" at 5 inches

Using Accent Essentials: cut "Accent #48" at 2 inches, "Accent #47" at 2.5 inches, "Accent #47s" at 2 inches, and "Accent #36" at 1 3/4 inches

Medium pink cardstock:

Using Once Upon A Princess: cut out "Dancer Layer" at 5 inches

Using Accent Essentials: cut out "Accent #48" at 6.5 inches

Then, glue down the letters where you want them using Zig glue. Add some pink ink to some of the letters and any of the other light pink cuts you want. I placed the pink & red heart paper "Accent 48" frame around the "Accent 48" medium pink cut. And flip flopped the light pink and pink heart frame and inside of the "Accent 47" cuts and inked the edges of the light pink "Accent 47s" cut and placed it in the middle of the other two. I glued down the light pink heart (cut "Accent #36") outline in the top right corner of the page and glued down the light pink ballerina slippers (from cut "Dancer-s") in the middle of the heart.

I glued down the medium pink tutu onto the ballerina dress and the little bows on the tops of the straps for the ballerina dress (this is not the way it's done in the book I guess the bows are for the little girls hair but I thought it added to the dress). I then took the tulle 5inches x 2 inches and cut it into 3 strips. Once I had the 3 strips cut I threaded the white thread through the tulle in large distances to gather the tulle at the top. Once I finished this I tied off the thread and placed glue on the medium pink tutu area and adhered the tulle to the tutu. I then put a little bit of light pink ink on the the white tulle tutu to add some color.

I glued down the outline for the light pink "Accent #48" cut and put some double sided foam tape on the back of the ballerina dress and placed it in the middle of the "Accent #48" frame. To finish off the layout I ran some Zig glue over the letters "P i n k" and poured pink glitter over it and dumped off the excess.

Hope you enjoy my layout!

Now a Card and Introducing....

Laura!  Hi just wanted to give you just a little bio about me, and to let you know how excited and pleased I am to be part of SweetSassyDiva's Design Team!

I started crafts at the ripe age of 7 my grandmother started teaching me to Crochet and Knit, then age 8 she taught me Ceramics, and at the age of 9 she taught me Flower Arranging.  I later on learned how to create Porcelain Dolls and also Macrame'.  I went to College for Computer Programming and Business Administration.  Then, the world of Machine Embroidery fell into my lap and I have been creating and selling my Machine Embroidery Designs on my website since 1998.  I only recently found my way to making cards and scrapbooking and I just love it!

You will find with my projects I love bling.....the more the better!

Recipe for Laura's Breast Cancer Card

1 12x12 sheet of Pink Cardstock
1 12x12 sheet of Soft Green Cardstock
1 12x12 sheet of White Cardstock
1 sentiments stamp
1 printout of graphic - I used 2 graphics from embroidery designs
from our website and combined them together. If you would
like the same graphics the original artwork can be purchased
from JRhettgraphics.com
Inkpad to stamp you sentiment and also to ink your edges on cut
white cardstock
Pink Ribbon
Rhinestone dots
Prima Glitter Rose
Double-sided tape
Popup dots
Aleenes Glue or Hot Glue
Glue Runner

1 Fold pink cardstock in half and then half again to create a 6x6 card. Or you can cut half off
to save on cardstock.

2 Use your Cricut or paper trimmer to cut green cardstock to a 5x5 piece.

3 print your graphic on white card stock measurements should be where the graphic is 4 inches wide...then trim close to graphic on all sides.

4 Use your Cricut or paper trimmer to cut another piece of your white cardstock to 3 inches by 2 1/2 Inches

5 Now place your pink ribbon diagonally on your card where it looks pleasing to you...cut enough excess to wrap around to the back of the card. Run glue runner on back of ribbon and attach to front of card on diagonal and ends attached to the back.

6 Put double-sided tape on back of green cardstock and center on your pink card and press down

7 Ink your edges on both pieces of white card stock both printed and not printed. Now is also when you should use the same ink pad and your sentiments stamp and stamp your sentiment on the non-printed white cardstock piece.

8 Put pop dots on both pieces of white cardstock...printed one I centered in the top middle of green cardstock..stamped white cardstock I off centered to the right to make room for my rose.

9 Glue Prima Glitter Rose to bottom left on green cardstock.

Final step...some bling...oh yes! I added 2 pink rhinestones to the right of the printed area of white cardstock on the green cardstock.

Hope you like the card and if you make some I hope your recipient loves it and it brings them encouragement and hope!

Now for an Imagine Layout and Introducing.....

Summer!  I blog at Cricut Diaries with my best friend Jennifer. It was about a year ago that I was first introduced to the world of paper crafting, I have since become completely addicted. I stay at home with two little girls and I am a military wife. This hobby is perfect for our lifestyle, we move often and this really gives me a great way to meet new amazing people everywhere we go. I was so excited to find out that I am now a SweetSassyDiva Designer! Thanks so much to Bobbi Jo for this opportunity, I hope that everyone enjoys what I have to share.


Brown and cream card stock
Pink glitter paper (DCWV)
Best Friends Imagine Cartridge
Stand and Salute Cartridge
Rock Princess Cartridge
White ribbon (2 inches wide)
Pink Button Brads
White Gel Pen


For this Layout I used my Imagine. I first printed out the shaped patterned paper using "best friends" and cut it at 10.5".  I then layered that on top of the brown and cream colored card stock. I added the white ribbon and made the bow by just tying a knot and trimming the edges. I also added the 2 pink "button" brads at the ends of the ribbon.

The stars and ribbons (stand and salute) were cut at 2.5 inches and filled in the color using patterns from "best friends".

The Heart font was cut from Rock Princess at 2 inches and again filled in with the same pattern from the "best friends" cartridge. I used a white gel pen to add faux-stitching on the layered brown card stock. Lastly I found some brown glittered chipboard swirl stickers in the dollar bin at target and added them around the photo. This photo is of my step-mom Debbie and my half sister. Debbie lost her battle with breast cancer 2 years ago this month.


I am pleased to start the introductions to the SweetSassyDiva Designers! In no particular order, I will introduce the SweetSassyDiva Designers over the next couple of days and they are sharing some wonderful projects with us!

Express Yourself!

Back in July, I applied to donate an Expression to a school of my choice.  They were very happy to have one donated especially as the school budget is like many schools not enough to handle basic needs.  Happily the Expression arrived and they are estatic! 

I will be going there to check out the machine and to give those teachers interested a brief tutorial of the machine.  So for those of you that nominated your schools, be on the look out because they are making their way to the schools now.  I hope that they will open this opportunity up again because it is such a great gift to give to our teachers and hopefully will assist in teaching our children. 

I am very excited to see what the teachers make with the Expression and perhaps they will share some pictures that I can post here.
