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 .....
                           
                                     Thanks for Hopping along and your next stop is Tammy A

Dont forget to leave a commit as Erica's has some great Blog Candy at the end of the Hop !!!

  24. Love the colors and the banner and turkey!! They came out cute. It's easy to miss things to be thankful for when all goes well. It is the time of most desperation when we truly experience a thankful attitude....sometimes!
