My Cricut Craft Room's November 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Today I have 3 projects to show you. The cartridges I chose for the hop are Sports Mania, Dude, Birthday Bash, Lacy Labels, and Sweet Treats.

My first project is a layout of my son on his dirt bike. The title Need for Speed was cut from the Sports Mania cartridge. The figure on the dirt bike came from Dude. The mat under the large photo was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

The next project was so fun to make! I wanted to try making one of those little tea light cakes. I cut a scalloped circle from George and then used my utility knife to cut several slits in the middle of it. That allowed me to slip the circle over the candle on the tea light. I also cut a small strip of coordinating paper and glued it around the tea light. Next, I used my Cuttlebug Quilled Chrysanthemum Kit to create tiny little flowers and glued them to the top of the cake using my Beacon 3 in 1 glue. I also added some extra glue and then sprinkled some glitter to give the appearance of frosting. I cut a little box (and I think it was from Tags Bags and Boxes but I apologize because I cant remember!). I added a square to two sides using my Gypsy so that the box would have little windows. I cut some plastic from the outer packaging that comes with our Cricut cartridges to put in the windows. The card was made using Lacy Labels for the shape around the cake. In order to make it a silhoutte from the shape, I used my Gypsy and layered two of the images, one sized at 3.94 and one sized at 3.00. I cut the cake from Sweet Treats and it was sized 3.35. All of the papers were from the DCWV Citrus stack.


The last project is also a card that I made for a super nice guy that worked on a computer that my mom bought at an auction. It was a fairly new computer but the company was required to remove the hard drive. He was kind enough to put in a new one and load all of the software for us. (he was our IT guy at my former place of employment). The card base was cut using the Birthday Bash cartridge and I cut it at 4". The patterned paper layer was also part of the card feature on this cartridge so I also set it to cut at 4 to make it fit. That cute little shape for the sentiment was cut from Lacy Labels (can you tell that this cartridge is a big favorite of mine?) I cut all of the pieces for this at 2.50. The Thanks was also cut from Lacy Labels but it was from a different shape on that cartridge. I added a Panera Bread gift card inside and added a hand written Thank You to Dan. I used Zots to stick the card to the inside flap.
Hope you liked my projects today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Next stop on this hop is Heather S http://operationcricutdesign.blogspot.com/
Please remember to stop by again tomorrow for the rest of the design teams projects.

I love your little candle cake. I have never seen one of those. You have inspired me to go out today and get some so I can make one for my nieces birthday next month. And the Thank you card is fantastic. I love the colors you choose they are great for a man. I always have problems with cards for men. Thank you for inspiring me today.
