Moonlight: From Spooky to Sophisticated

Our new Moonlight Paper Pack is geared toward halloween papercrafting; however, I don't do much of that.  But with papers that feature soft colours like Plum Mist and Slate (new!) it lends itself perfectly to projects that are more sophisticated than spooky!

Cricut Artiste: A Birthday Party Blast!

The new Artiste Cartridge has a variety of themed keys from babies to birthdays!  This key, in particular, features everything you need for a little boys' space party!  Watch the video to find out how they did it!

I love this paper!  It's classic comics along with classic boy elements like stripes and solids lends itself perfectly to boy projects!  Here are a few cards I made up using our Spray Pens (Z1380), the Superhero Paper Packet (Z7152B), and Super Powers My Acrylix Stamp Set (C1485).
Time is running out for our Stampaganza campaign!  Throughout the month of June, when you order 2 stamp sets, you get the third one FREE!

To create your own "Glimmer Mist":
  • Fill spray pen with water to the 7th line from the bottom.
  • Now the re-inker colour of your choice-- in this case, I used Moonstruck-- and add to water mixture until it reaches the 9th line from the bottom.
  • Finally, add 3 "drops" of our Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint, which will give you a bit of a shimmer.
  • Shake well and spritz away!
