My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

Happy Saturday...I hope everyone is having a great start to this Labor Day Weekend.

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop...this is my first time participating in a blog hop so I am super excited.  You should have come from Jen R if not please start at the begining http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/  if not please start at the beginning. 
On this Blog Hop you will see 100 different Cricut Cartridges used.

For my first creation today I made a 5.5x5.5 card using Hello Kitty Greetings, Storybook and Better Together (Imagine cartridge).  The cuts are as follows:
  • Hello Kitty Greetings (Page 39 cut at 4.5).  I flood filled Hello Kitty's dress and bow layer with a pattern from Better Together (Page 42) and the ballon layers were flood filled with coordinating colors in the Better Together Color Palette.  I then embossed these with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. 
  • Storybook (Page 75 - Function Key - Accent Frame - Shift - cut at 5")  This shape was flood filled with the pattern from Better together (page 38). 
  • Storybook (Page 71 - Function Key - Accent Blackout - cut at 1.5 x 2) and I stamped my sentiment in that shape (the sentiment is from My Creative Time Stamps - Many Greetings).  I then cut this same shape at 4.5 x 2.5 to go on the inside of my card.  I added some stitching and all done.
Now for Mini Monsters.  One of my Besties asked me to help her decorate for her son's third birthday party and he wanted a Monster theme.  This was perfect because I just got Mini Monsters and I couldn't wait to use it.  I made a couple projects to help decorate for the birthday party.

Mini Monsters Birthday Banner
All of the monsters for the banner were cut at 8" and the letters are from A Child's Year cut at 3.31".  On the Gypsy I used the Hide Countour feature so the eyes wouldn' cut so I could use googly eyes.  I then attached the monsters to 2.5" Celbrate It Basic Ribbon that says Happy Birthday.  They were attached to the side without the words and then the ribbon was flipped so you can see the Happy Birthday on the ends.

Mini Monsters Goodie Bags
 The orange/green goodie bag was cut at 5.71"...this size I was able to cut two monsters on the mat.  The blue/orange goodie bag was cut at 6.18"...this size only allowed one monster per mat because of the handles.






Birthday boy Landon biting the monster's toe...Isn't this cake absolutely adorable.  This cake was made by Landon's mommy.  I striclty create with paper. LOL  The little monster is tired after his party. :)
