Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day Two!

You should have arrived here from the super talented Marji.  If not you will want to start at 
we don't want you to miss anything!

Collectively the design team has used 100 cricut cartridges to create our projects! 

Be sure to follow Erica's blog so you will know when she has contests, prizes, challenges, swaps & special online coupons.

You'll also want to head over to her webstore to see all the awesome deals she is offering!  Don't forget to tell her Miranda sent you!

Don't forget to comment along the way on all of the blogs to be entered to win the prizes Erica is giving away: TPC Girlfrieds Pink Papers; a Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge and a pink Cricut toy! 

Did I mention our team is going pink this month in honor of cancer awareness?  Each of our cards will have pink somewhere in it.  It may be on the back or even covered up but it started out with pink somewhere! 

 On to my projects, this month I am using All Wrapped Up Cricut Imagine Cartridge, Ultimate Creative Series Sampler, The Good Old Days Imagine Cartridge and Potpourri Basket, hope you enjoy my projects: 

As I mentioned previously, this card was created using All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.  I printed and cut it at 6 inches using the layers feature.  I added foam tape to each layer to give it some dimension.  When folded it measures 3 inches.  I added some clear jewels I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I'm not sure if you can see it clearly but the inside of the flowers are pink!

Believe or not, this cute birthday stamp is from the $1 bin at Michael's!  I just colored in using some LePlume II markers which also came from Michael's 

Now what card woule be complete without an envelope right.  This envelope was also cut from the All Wrapped Up Imagine Cartridge.  

For my second project, I used Ultimate Creative Series Sampler.......

Sorry sometimes I get caught up creating and forget to take pics so I only have this one of this project.  This card is 5 1/4 X 5 1/4.  I cut my pretty floral background using Bonus 6 set from the Cindy Loo Cartridge at 5 inches.  My champagne glasses can be found on Bonus 1 Image 14 - Wedding Cartridge and was cut at 3.75 twice once on silver paper and than again using velum.  I used the center that would normally be thrown away from the velum as champagne and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss dots embossing folder.  Finally I added some pink chalk, which can't be seen in the pic!  My ribbon is from Michael's and my sweet sentiment is from My Creative Time  Teeny Tag Greetings and is stamped using CTMH Lagoon Ink.  

For my third project today, I used The Good Old Days Imagine Cartridge....

Isn't this image the cutest!  I love it!  I cut and printed this image using my Imagine at 3.4.  My pretty It's A Boy ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  My sweet sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Simple Sentiments.  

A Closer look at the image!

For my final project today, I used Potpourri Basket....

For this last project, I created a Halloween Card that I am going to transform into a Birthday card for my oldest son.  He'll be 26 this year, whew, where has the time gone.  Sorry I tend to digress.  In the above pic you can see my base and my layers.  They were cut at 3.0 using my E2.  I crumpled up the white pieces to give them an older look.  Then I inked them with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.  

Finally I added some green Studio G glitter glue to the eyes and added some foam tape to the back to pop it up.

My card is A2 sized with a dark green layer, then another black layer and finally my back ground layer is from K & Company.  I picked up the cute ribbon at Walmart at the end of the season last year.   I added 3 mini buttons from Hobby Lobby.  My seniment is from Cardz TV - Spooky Sayings.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!
