My Cricut Craft Room's October 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

My Cricut Craft Room's October 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

Welcome to our October Blog Hop! If you came to visit from Jen’s blog, then you are in the right spot. If you just happened to come to visit and didn’t start at the beginning, then please go to . Erica’s – http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com

I don’t want you to miss out on any of the fabulous projects that will be posted today. Erica has blog candy if you stop by and comment on all the blogs in the line up. Also check back on her blog again tomorrow as the other half of our design team will be participating the the Blog Hop – Day TWO!

Ok, are you ready to get started? I have three projects to show you today. The first one is a birthday card that I created for my great nephew’s birthday. He just turned 13 and he is on the track team. I used my Sports Mania cartridge to complete it. I began by choosing to make the background with my Cri-kits pens. Next I cut the runner out of chipboard and cardstock and cut it at 3 inches. The shirt was cut twice so I could pop it up to add dimension. The inside sentiment said “Hope you are on track to have your happiest birthday ever!”

My next project is one that I really loved! My niece shares her birthday with her 13 year old cousin for which I made the track card. She loves girly things so I found this wonderful pink zebra printed paper and zebra print ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I used Forever Young to cut the shoes out at 4 inches. I wanted to add some extra texture so I also created little tiny pinwheels to put on where the flowers normally go. To top it off, I added pink rhinestones. The sentiment on the inside said “Kick up your heels and have a great birthday!”

The last project is a layout of my Mom and Mother In Law that was taken this summer. I loved this photo so much. I still need to add a title to the layout so I would love to have some suggestions on what it should be. I used my Cricut American Alphabet that came pre-loaded on my E2 for the doilies behind the photo. The top note shape was cut using my Gypsy (because I wanted a silhouette and not a solid shape) and was cut at 6 inches from the Create A Critter cartridge. The cut little flowers came from the Cherry Limeade Lite cartridge and I cut them at 2.5 and 2 inches. I also ran them through my Cuttlebug and then sanded the cardstock so that the polka dots showed up better. I love the Core’dinations paper. It really works great in the Cricut! The leaves came from yet another cartridge which I forgot to write down (oops sorry!)

Hope you like the projects I have posted. Since hops are way more fun when there is candy involved, I am doing a small giveaway. All you need to do is be a follower and leave a comment with a way to reach you. If you saw my post from Thursday, already know that I am giving away the cute little Cricut jar that I made for Thursday theme day. I will add some little goodies inside of it too! Commenting will end on Sunday night, October 2nd at 11 PM. I will try to pick a winner no later than Tuesday morning.

Wow...those cards are SO cool. I really love the girly one! It's so bright it almost pops out of the page! :) That layout is so sweet. I also have a photo similar to this with my Mom and STepmom. Would love to see what titles you come up with!

For some reason my mind is drawing a complete blank, so can't help you! :( Hope some other more clever person can come up with something.

The cards are sooo great, but that LO is my fav. The papers are so pretty and you picked such great cuts to feature two beautiful ladies!

Tiffany said...

I love the cards especially the shoes. So cute.

Becky Dunham said...

Love these projects Tracy! My 17 yo daughter would LOVE the card you made for your niece :) That pic of the moms is so cute - how about "Friends by marriage". My mom and MIL are great friends but probably would never have met if my hubby and I had not met and married 24 years ago.

For some reason, I cannot seem to become a follower. I see your follower sign, but nothing underneath it for me to click on. I will try again in a few minutes.
