National Popcorn Popping Month

I made this cute little popcorn box using our Artiste Cricut cartridge and Moonlight paper pack.

World Card Making Day

For this card, I used the Stella paper pack and the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

Sweetest Day

For these treat "bags" I again used the Artiste Cricut cartridge and Clementine paper.  They were cut at 4 1/2" and hold one chocolate nugget.  I think I may make more of these  for Halloween.

Pink for a Day Day
I used the Art Philosophy Cricut and Pink Journey Cricut cartridges.  I also used our Victory paper pack.

We have some unusual blog candy today. If you happened to notice that Lynne has Count Your Button Day for October 21, 2012. The one closest to guessing how many buttons are on Lynne's card will win some buttons. Now, how kewl is that??

Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on November 10, 2012, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
