Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning
Happy New Year and welcome to the first Hop of the New Year over @ My Cricut Craft Room. I hope you all made through the holidays and are ready to do some crafting. If you just came from Lisa's then you are in the right place. If not then you want to start at the beginning so you don't miss any of these fabulous projects.
Each month the Design Team shows you 100 carts and many of the projects you can create with them. This month Erica asked us to use 5 different carts. I made mostly cards and a cute little box from the following carts: Victorian Romance, Paper Dolls teen Scene, Sweet Tooth Boxes, Hello kitty Greetings and Superman.
Since I have 8 grandchildren I decided to use this month's hop and get a head start on some Valentines' Day projects.I hope this will give you some incentive to get going as well. So, let's get started:
I plan to make some shaped cards this year to challenge myself and I found the perfect one to start with on Hello Kitty Greetings. This image was found on page 51
using the card feature @ 3.25". I love the glittered card stock for the wings, however the heart had a few spaces I wasn't happy with so I decided to add some liquid pearls to the outline. The stamps are Pink By Design "Laughy Taffy". One of my grand daughters is going to love this!
I was so excited to finally use this cart. This image is from Paper Dolls Teen Scene . The image is on page 27 and all the layers were cut @ 5". The image s-rain, s-rain s for the body was cut in black + shift body in cream. I used wardrobe layer 2 and wardrobe 2 for the clothing. I just love the skates and, since one of my grand daughters takes ice skating, I'm sure she will love this card.
I added some waterfall stickles to the edge of the skirt and some chalk from Pebbles, Inc for the cheeks. (It's pretty cold in those arenas, lol). She looks like she is holding a heart from the background paper. (Yes I planned it that way!).
I used some scrap pieces to make the background, added some faux stitching around the edge and I tag I had left over from last year.
Enough of the girlie stuff. Since I have 5 grandsons, I used Superman for an out of this world card.
I LOVE how this came out. I haven't decided whether this will be for V-Day or a birthday but, either way it will work. This cut can be found on page 28 and I cut it @ 3.50".
I was going to make another V-Day card but this image really caught my eye. It's the clown image and only has 2 cuts. What a sweet die cut this is with the silhouette as well. I think this would make a great baby card. I left the bottom right corner with enough space to add a round tag, maybe a congrats message. Here's the girl version:
This could be for a birthday, congrats baby card and yes, even a Valentines' Day card, lol.
Both clown cards were raised with pop dots for some dimension.
I hope I have given you a little inspiration today. I would love if you would tell me what crafting goals you have for the New Year. Mine is to challenge myself to use the carts I have purchased but never used (Shocker!!!) and to make some different style and shaped cards this year.
Now be sure to hop on over to Robin's and see what crafting goodness she has created to share with you today.
