Romans 8: 31-32 bag toppers

Been on a break from bible study at church..tomorrow will be our first night i made up these bags of gold fish crackers, m&M's and Starburst.. I made the bag topper a bit different..and i like it stapling..its a slit at the bottom that i slip the bag thru..the bags that i used have a  tape seal so was easy to just tape to the bag, but if i had other bags without a tape seal i could still use a piece of  regular tape to close it.

Candy flowers and bag- George cart

Needed a quick gift for a friend of mine..will give it to her in the morning, she picks me up every Sunday to go to church and i know if i offer her gas money she'd flip, from time to time i'll make her a little sumthin sumthin. I know she likes Jolly Ranchers and Star burst so thats what i used, cut the flowers using the George cart. Then went alittle over the top with adding some flowers to a bag and putting lifesavers as the centers.

Word Collage cart

Not really sure if there is a right or wrong way to use this cart.but in my case i cut this collage and then used it more as a stencil..i have to get used to using vinyl but you kinda get the idea of what this cart can do.

Sweet Tooth Box Cart - tool box

This is the tool box without the rounded top....this will make a nice gift box, it is cut at 9.25, you have to cut 2 pieces to make the box, then one piece for the lid.

Girls Makeup Cricut cartridge

Just got this cart yesterday, some really cute stuff on's just a sample of a few cuts.  The purse card, cute right..compact card and a favor box that looks like a makeup kit..just had to give them a try..

Cricut Sweet Tooth boxes- cake slices

Well a week off from crafting thought id go nuts..but just gave me more ideas to implement this first project...i cut these cake slices with the Cricut cartridge Sweet Tooth boxes..can't wait to try out every box on this cart...needed a little sumthin to take to my ladies meeting on this Saturday, so thought id make a cake, well sorta.  Here's what i came up with.. i put skittles in cello bags and put a bag in each box. Then im showing the size difference..the booklet says to cut at 11 inches..well see how big that is..which would be good if i was putting a cupcake inside of it.
