September 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

 
Welcome to Erica's Craft Room

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/
if not please start at the beginning
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop.

 
 
For this months Hop I chose to use the following cartridges,
Fontopia, Elmo and Friends Holiday, and Rock Princess.
I made all birthday cards this month!!
 
This first one I used Fontopia, and Artiste.
It is kind of simple, but it was for my
son, so did not want it fancy!!
 


The paper is from CTMH older set
called Route 66.
I used the chipboard and stamps
from the Artiste bundle for the center piece.

 
For this next card, I used Elmo and Friends Holidays.
Now I know I made an Abby Cadabby card a few
months ago, but when my friend at work saw
a picture of it, she wanted me to make her an
Abby Cadabby card too.  She has a
grandaughter named Abby.
 
These characters, have so many tiny pieces they
are sometimes a challenge to put together,
but once they are done, totally worth it!!
I added some of my favorite
Stardust Stickles.  The tag
is Spellbinders "Twisted Metal Tags"
 

 
 
For my last 2 projects I used Rock Princess.
My granddaughter had a "Rock Star" Birthday
Party this month, I made the invitations for the party.
 
I had to make 30 of these, so kept them pretty simple.
I had quite the time trying to cut glitter cardstock.
I ruined several sheets trying to cut the top layer.
I finally ended up reversing the colors and was
happy with the way they turn out.
 
Here is the inside
 
 
Here is the card that I made for her.

Hi Kathy, Sorry I am late seeing ur projects. They are great I love the rock star cards. Super Cute

ClaireR said...

Awesome cards Kathy. Love the abby card. Glitter paper can be tricky, I usually turn the paper over so the glitter is facing down on the mat and then flip the image so the layers work. But reversing the colors totally worked and turned out a great card!
TFS!
