My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop - Day One

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop

Happy Saturday Crafters,
Thank you for joining us today on the first 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop of 2012.  You should have come from Karey's crafty goodness.  If you came across this post as one of my followers please start at the begining of the blog hop Here.

For my project this month I made a calendar using Chipboard Hanging Calendar that I got from Erica from My Cricut Craft Room.  I used Create A Critter for my images and patterns from the following Cricut Imagine Cartridges:  Best Friends, Better Together, Imagine More, Imagine More Cards, Kate's Kitchen, & Nursery Tails.  For the calendar part I used My Creative Time Stamps (Whimsical Calendar Days & XL Label Borders)  I also used the XL Label Die that coordinates with these stamp sets.  I am going to use this as my Birthday Calendar in my craft room since it is not year specific.  I didn't want every month to show so instead of hanging it as intended I am going to have them sit on the pictured easel three months at a time.
 
Below each picture is the Imagine Cartridge used and the size of the Critter.

On the back of each month I created a pocket and used the My Creative Time's die so I can write the name of who's birthday's are on that specific month or any other notes I might want to add for that month.  I like to include the year the person was born...I have a lot of kiddos in my life and it's getting harder to remember their ages, so this helps me a lot. :)
I had such a blast with these Critter's and the Imagine patterns.
