Erica's Craft Room 25 days of Christmas Theme Tree's

Today I used Ribbons and Rosettes .... This was a must have Cartridge !!!

 I made 7 of these for Teacher Gifts this year... So easy to make too...
I cut 5 1 1/2 " rosettes pieces and scored and glued the together. Turn inside out and glue it together..TIP I made a small 1" circle for support on underside and the Tree on top to hold it together.... I then cut the boarder to wrap around there are 4 designs to match each rosette. This only took an Hour to cut and glue all 7 Rosettes and boarders....Then I bought the container at Michaels and added candy , cookies and coffee to each..Paper is from We R Memory Keepers.

Have a Craft Day

So I had to buy Buccaneer for my Son's 12 th Birthday This year is the first time the twins are not 
Sharing anything for their birthday ...... they even want different parties....

 This is on Cricut printable vinyl sheets..... 6 " It will go on his bedroom door !!!
 Next is the bonus of a treasure box at fit to page 10.5 "
 This box did not have any scoring marks so it was a little harder to do. ( a gift card is going inside)
 This is also a bonus feature fit to page 10.5 "
 Every Pirate needs a hat and eye cover !! The hat is great it has lots of sizes it can fit  a small child to adult.
This is his card !! I cut the Bonus map at 6" and the Happy Birthday Matey at 4" I added a silver gel pen  and pop doted the Birthday mat on then I added liguid Pearls on the X....

Erica's Cricut Craft Room Would you guess… Wednesdays

I can not believe that it's Thanksgiving already ..... This is my last fall project for 2011
I Love being on the DT for Erica ..... On Wednesday's  we use ONLY the features on the cartridges. What this means is when you look at the handbook, you cannot use the main image on the left side of the page. But you can use ALL of the other features or layers. I found this old Disney Paper in my stash .... So then I knew I would use the Mickey's Font Cartridge .... I chose to use the End Cap Feature for the title at 2 1/2" .... I have used the End Cap before they have a few other choices.... Then I knew I need pluto's paws from Mickey and Friends I used the Icon Border at 1" so now all I have to do is take a photo of the food and group shot of the Family and add it to our 2011 book. 

I wish all my Friends a Happy Thanksgiving .....and bring on the christmas rush. I'm not ready but will be soon .... 

All my Best

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's  Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cartridge  Blog Hop Day 2
You should have come from 
Connie    if not please start at the beginning

Today I wanted to share with you projects I  made for Thanksgiving this year.
This year I want to really focus on being grateful for what we have. My family has had 
to long year of ups and downs. This year I'm Thankful our nephew survived a major illness,
my brother in law and his family have been close to us thru Skype and made a few trips from
Korea. My husband connected with a son who he never met and my kids have a new big half brother.
I hope you have a blessing to be thankful for this year as it has gone by so fast.....

I used Fancy Frames , Word Collage,  Autmn Celebrations and Buccaneer  
I cut the Frame Base 5 1/2" out of thin chip board and card stock.  I then used CCR to use Word Collage and Buccaneer to color the words at 5 and 4 1/2 " in red , orange and yellow. I stoped the imagine after the prining before cutting.  I had 
a hard time cutting this image that when I came up with using CCR and the imagine.
I the cut the Arcorn from Autumn Celebrations at 3 1/2 " 
add the buttons and twine to hang.

Next I used Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art to make this Banner.
 I used my Gyspy to weld the image together. It was in a group of  3 leaves @ 4"
 I love this font ( same cartridge) .... I placed the 1" Letters inside the image  using the Gyspy.
the cut on a  12 x 24 " mat and paper  is from Provo Craft
 My last project for Today is my Turkey from Enjoy the Seasons . I used the Imagine and printed and cut at 3 1/2 " and the cut layers to pop dot and added an eye. These are doing to be wraped around the silverware.  I still have to name the turkeys .....

My Cricut Craft Room... Would You Guess Wednesday ????

For My Daughters 13th Birthday I dusted off the Cricut Cake
She needs a Gluten Free Cake 
Her theme was Justin Beiver , Purple and Teal with Peace , Love and Music 

  Rub on some shortening on the mat and roll out Fondant up to 1/2" thick
 Tip if Fondant is too hard put in mircowave for 10 sec to warm.
 I choose Rock Princess Cartridge pg 57 Feature Key Phrase cut at 4"

 I used the Gyspy to match up the shapes and fondant on mat before I cut
 I needed some extra Peace signs so I used the hide key on Gyspy  to cut the peace sign at 4.5"
 Tip remove the extra fondant around the cut
 Let it sit on mat for a few minutes before you remove so it keeps the shape.
 Here they are drying .. I then added pearl dust ( got at cake shop) to add Bling.
Finished CAKE !!!!!

Thanks for visiting today... I have been sick for awhile and missing in action from my Cricut and Followers... I'm going to be around more as my body and pain allows...I'm working on the Haunted House to be posted before Halloween and the 100 Cartridge Hop on Nov 5th and my posting on the 6th...

All My Best
