     Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room and our monthly hop. If you just came from Janet's   then you are in the right place 
Each month the  Design Team make projects using at least 3 Cricut cartridges.
This is a fabulous way for you to view all kinds of paper crafting using great dies cuts
from these cartridges. I used 3 different Imagine carts:

Lori's Garden, Greeting Cards Inside And Out and finally, Santa's Village. 

     Since we have been watching the Olympics I thought I would make some prize
 bags for 2 of my grandchildren who complete swim lessons this week.

     This actually started as a card from Greeting Cards Inside And Out. 
The trophy card  is on page 19 of the handbook and cut it @ 4.2".
I used the images on page 21 with the layers separate. 
The finger was cut @ 5" and the labels @ 3.5".  I also added some glossy accents
to the trophy to add a little shine. The no. 1 was also  raised up with a pop dot.

Okay, so I am not giving them a medal but I am giving them googles and 
diving sticks to practice their skills.I'm not sure we have Olympic swimmers 
but their baby sister is showing great promise as a gymnast!
     My next project is a card I made using Lori's garden. Can I just say
how much I love this cart?  It has to be the greatest Imagine cart there is. 
I used the birdcage on page 3 using the cut and print feature @ 2" on off white 
or cream card stock.I also cut the branch from page 31 @ 1.3".

 I inked the edges of my card stock with frayed burlap and faded jeans distress inks.  
Of course I needed to do some embossing so I used a cuttlebug border. I decided to use the recessed
part rather than the raised edge. Just call it creative licence, lol.

     Now for the fun part. I used some white and opaque Liquid Pearls to the birdcage 
as well as frosted Aqua and green Smooch.

     I used some Cinnamon Stickles for the flower centers and finally the sentiment from
 PBD Stamps. This sentiment is from their "Grandparents" set.
     My finally project is from the Imagine cart Santa's Village. Every year on Christmas Eve 
we gather the youngsters to go outside and sprinkle reindeer food so Santa's sleigh won't miss us! 
I thought I'd get a head  start and make some cute "boxes" to put the food in. 
     I started with the pillow box from Girl's Make-Up Party. The image I used was  
which I sized  @ 3.5". This striped printed background paper is from Santa's Village 
on page 36. Print, cut=done! I then used the reindeer tag on page 32 @ 2". I wanted a vintage look
so I inked the edges with tea Dye distress ink.
Before I adhered the tag, I used some red satin ribbon to tie it closed and added a bell so
the reindeer will hear us.
     I'll wait until we get close to the holidays and then mix up some reindeer food: oats, sugar and (of course)
glitter so it sparkles!!!
         I hope you have enjoyed my projects for this Hop. Be sure to stop over at Erica's Store to get in 
on the deals. Next you want to head over to the lovely Lisa:
