I made this subway art for my daughter's birthday.  Her dorm room is very beige and needed some more color on the walls.  She plays college softball so I thought these words and phrases were appropriate.  I used a 20 X 24 inch canvas because she cannot put big holes in the wall and the canvas can be hung with little effort.  I learned that I can cut Contact Paper with the Cricut so I used several cartridges to mix up the fonts.  I love the turquoise color.

I made this for Leslie.  It is a very late birthday present and a reminder of a special afternoon at Wicked.  I used a variety of papers that I already had and began embellishing.  I really love the way it turned out and I especially am happy that she loves it so much!

I made 2 of these witch's boots for my sisters, Cyndi and Gayla for their birthdays.  I painted the wood black and covered it with paper from My Minds Eye. You can't really tell but the black part of the paper is flocked.  I absolutely love glitter so I used black, green, purple and orange.  I spray painted the bells and added jute laces.  Finally, glued some tulle on the top!  Happy Halloween!
