My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Blog Hop


Welcome to Erica's Craft Room

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop 





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


I can not believe it is December and only 24 days until Christmas ......


  I used Creative Memories Cartridge 'Tis the Season to make a 12 x 12 wall hanging. The Robin , Sleigh, Bells and stocking were cut @ 3 1/2 "  I used card stock. The Flocked velum paper is from SEI. I then glue it to a piece of Kraft card stock. I used Martha Stewart tape to make the window that each ornament hands from sew easy floss. 
















                                                                                                             


Hot Chocolate  Bags :  From Love you a Latte Cartridge....... I made these really cute mugs at 3 1/2 " and cut a slit to slide the candy cane in. I then glued it to the front of the bag and decorated with tape. Inside is a Hot Cocoa packet with the sir stick being used to close the bag.  These were super easy and quick to make for a small treat gift from the kids to their friends. 





My last project is a card  in CCR. I wanted to make a snow globe . The circles are cut at 3" and the banner at 1 1/2 " The under layer was from Martha Stewart Card stock silver then embossed and colored. The top layer is Frosted Film ( multi cut x2 ) From Tim Holtz. 


I wish you a Happy Holiday Season and please leave a commit as I love to read them ....

NEXT is  SHELLEY   and Enjoy what the Design Team has to show you and Don't forget the Blog Candy When you finish the Hop.
