100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to the 100 Cartridge Blog Hop.

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop

If you are joining me from Laurie's Blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to visit my blog today, then please make sure you check out Erica's blog at
My Cricut Craft Room to start at the beginning.

There are so many talented ladies in today's hop.  This is day two of the hop, so be sure to check Erica's Blog for yesterday's hop list.

So, I was a little over ambitious and signed up for 5 cartridges!!  I signed up for Art Philosophy (my favorite cart), Elegant Edges, Sweet Treats, Sweethearts and Ultimate Creative Cartridge Sampler

I made 3 cards, one using Sweet Treats, one using Sweethearts, and then the last card I used, Art Philosopy, Elegant Edges and Ultimate Creative Sampler.

Now, on to my projects!!

For this card, I used Sweet Treats.

I cut this super cute card using the card feature.   I cut the card and all the layers at 5.5"
The PP is Imanginise Sweet Cheri line.  I cut the tag using a Stampin Up punch and the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper "Sweetest Cupcakes" set.

For this next card I used the card feature on the Sweethearts cart.
It was super quick and easy to make!!

This card was so hard to photograph, because of the glitter paper.
This card was one simple cut, I cut it at 5.13" H.  I saved the cut out piece of cupid to use on another project.  I used kraft cardstock, and then a piece of red glitter cardstock was glued to the back.  I embossed it using the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.  I used distress ink to the card base.  The sentiment is from My Creative Times "100% Sweetness" set.  I finished it off with some crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot and a rhinestone corner.

For my last card, I actually used 5 different cartridges!!

This is a Valentine's card, but I decided to use non-traditional colors.  The paper is from DCWV Lemon Flower Stack.  I love this stack.  Actually I could even use this as an anniversary card, since my anniversary is Feb. 6th!!  The card base was cut from Art Philosophy at 7" H.  The pretty heart border was cut from Elegant Edges at 7"w x 1" h.  The heart was cut from the Ultimate Creative Sampler at 4.7" h.  The arrow came from Gypsy Wanderings and the sentiment came from Wild Card.  I finished it off with some rhinestone swirls and crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot and some distress ink.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects, your next stop is: Kym

The entire lineup in case you get lost is:

Oh WOW, Kathy! First of all, let me please tell you that I LOVE YOUR BLOG LAYOUT!! I'm ALL ABOUT PINK! I'm just getting started setting my own Blog up, so it's still "ugly" right now. I hope I can make mine as pretty as yours! Your 3 spoiled Babies are BEAUTIFUL, by the way!

Now, as for your cards -- GREAT JOB! They are ALL precious, but I have to say my fav is the Cupcake! It's just TOO "Sweet"! :o)

I am SOOO EXCITED about this 100 Cartridge Blog Hop giveaway. This is a GREAT start to my collecting of Cricut cartridges, as I just recently purchased the E2 & am in dire need of cartridges!! I purchased the Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for myself for Christmas. Other than that, I only have the 2 that came preloaded into my new E2. I still have a LONG way to go!

THANK YOU for your ideas! I look forward to coming back to your blog to see more of your clever creations! :o)
