LRW - Chalelnge #103 - Fall Themed Project x2


The challenge for this week on Little Red Wagon is to create a Fall Themed Project!  So I decided since I was off I would create 2 very different projects to kick off the challenge for week!  I have created both a card and some cookies using a Cricut Cake Machine!  (My very first attempt at something on this new machine!!!) 
First Up is this little Pumpkin Card!

I used the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge the cut is on Page 70 and I cut it at 4" 2 times and cut away the sides on the 2nd piece.  Items used are:  PTI Sentiment, PP - Echo park Dots and Stripes, Bo Bunny Double Dot, Twine and Button are also PTI products!

And next up!  Here are some cookies I made!!!

I used the Cake Basics Cricut Cake Cartridge and cut some sugar cookies and matching marshmellow fondant in the Cricut Cake Machine at 3 1/2"

Considering this was my first time ever using the machine here are are a few tidbits of helpful hints!!! One - you have never rolled your dough or fondant enough!!!! I used the Wilton Orange Rings on the Wilton Roling pin and kept rolling till the dough did not move any more!! This is then the perfect thickness - I used a Medium speed and Max pressure on the dials and freeze the dough rolled on the mat for 30 min before cutting and the fondant for 1 hour before cutting! And voila - here you have it!

I hope you can play along with us this week, link up your projects and don't forget to check out what the other "Girlfriends" have created!
