Erica's Craft Room 100 Cartridge Blog Hop Day 1

Happy New Year !!!

Welcome to the 1st 100 cartridge blog hop for 2012 

You should have come here from Yvette 
If you did not , you  Start with Erica's Craft Room so you dont 
miss some great projects...

When I saw this cartridge I had to have it....

Victorian Romance 

I collect Angels and love the color Pink. So this was a given for a card. I cut the Angel at 4" I cut 'love' 1"
I added stickles to the wings. I made my own background paper for 5 papers.
 For the second card my husband quotes  the forest gump movie line "Life is a box of chocolate" So I made this card for valentines day.... I used CCR (cricut craft room to weld my letters)  The Cartridge I used was Lyrical Letters 'Love' was cut 1.4" and Jumbo 'is a box of ' was cut 1" Loop Dee Loo
The word Chocolate is from sweet shop I used all 3 layers at 4.5" wide
 My 3rd  card I used Lyrical Letter 'note' 4.5" and Victorian Romance for the Heart 3.5"
For all the paper on the cards  I used echo park paper 'Yours Truly'  and some basic solid card stock.
I used Tim Holtz tissue tape for the music strips.

Erica's Craft Room Thursday Theme Day !!!

Today's Theme Flower Shoppe Cartridge 

 The paper on the tag is from echo park 6 x 6 pad "yours truly"
 The solid paper for the flower is from cricut 6 x 6 pad  reds and pinks
 The stamp is from Michael's and the bling .... I used Black into first the stamped Brilliance silver over it then outlined it with a Jelly roll pen
For the Flower  pg 14-15. I cut 3 layers  ( Heart 1, 2 and 4) at 2" It was so easy .... I curled the ends down to add dimension  to the flower. I added  a silver brad for the center. Then I  glued the tiny wrapped hearts around it ( Heart 1) . I did only use 1/2 of the cut.

I hope you enjoy the Valentines Tag

Have a crafty Day !!!
