September 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day Two
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges
in their projects during the two days of this hop.

You should have started at
if not please start at the beginning. 

 Otherwise, you  probably came from 

150 Dolche' Word Flash Cards all made with my Cricut!
The font is from Simply Sweet Cartridge and the tag is from the Sweet Treats Cartridge. My daughter came home with a list of 150 words she needs to learn before the end of the school year. So, to make it more fun for her, I broke out the Cricut and started cutting tags and words. To simplify the process I used cardstock from Recollections that already has the adhesive on it. So, it consisted of cutting and then just adhering the letters to make the words. My daughter loved it and bring it on the bus with her to practice.

My next project is a card for my husband using the Handy Man Lite Cartridge. When this Lite cartridge came out I knew I just 'had' to have it. (Don't we all say that...Hahaha!) My husband is all into tools, and making a 'man cave'. He also travels every week and thought it would be nice to make a card for him to find in his suitcase from the kids and I.

The card is a standard A2 size.    The tape measure die cut measures at approximately 4". 
 I also distressed the look of it with black ink to make it look more 'used'. I found the tools that form the word 'DAD' at Michaels. I just love them and want to try using my Gypsy and this cartridge to make my own. If it works maybe you'll see it on next month's blog hop. I also used the perfect stamp by Pink By Design, the Tool Time set for the inside.  Isn't it perfect?!

My final and third project for you is another Disney layout of Minnie Mouse's house.
 I love how it turned out!  

My 12x12 layout started out with  My Minds Eye, Deena's Penny Lane Specialty Glitter paper.  I matted two of my photo with the same glitter cardstock and then a purple from my stock.  I also used the Tim Holtz Distressing Ink, Dusty Grape to help the matting and photos stand out.   Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge was used to make Minnie on both pages.  She is cut out at 4.5 inches and embellished with stickles.  I used Prima flowers, Recollections Mulberry flowers, some pearl like brad and buttons from my stash of goodies to embellish the pages.

Here are some close up pictures of my pages and my Minnie Cricut Cuts.
