Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's one year "BLOG-iversary" of our first 100 cartridge Blog hop!
A year ago the blog was kicked off with the first design team members and daily postings. It took 2 months to get ready for this hop last year. Now we bring it to you the first full weekend of every month.
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop. Sunday the new members of the design team will be announced and some have even made a project to share with you!! What an exciting weekend!!

Now on to my projects...For this month I am using the following Cricut Cartridges:
Create A Critter, Gypsy Wanderings, Birthday Cakes, Something to Celebrate, and Greeting Cards Inside & Out Imagine Cartridge.
A friend at work is planning her daughter, Ryan's, first birthday. She wanted an Owl theme so of course I automatically thought of the super cute owl on the Create A Critter Cartridge.
I think I went a bit overboard, but I was so excited to make all the following projects.
My first project are Cupcake Toppers...these may look familiar if you follow my blog as I posted these on Monday as a Sneak Peak of the coordinating Party Decor. For details on how these were created please go to my original post Here.
Here is a banner that I created for my second project. I used all of the cartridges listed above to create this project. All of the paper on this banner was created using the Cricut Imagine and the Greetings Cards Inside and Out Cartridge.
I love the colors and patterns on this cartridge!
My third project are these fun goody bags for the kiddos that will be at the party. The goody bags include Stickers, a Glow Stick Bracelet, Play Dough, and a Squirt Gun since the party is going to be outside at a park. These are the first goody bags I have created and I had a fun with these. The Thank you sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases stamp set.
My last project I am going to share with you will be the Centerpieces for the tables. My friend has quite a big family and is expecting around 70 people at this party, so I will be working on creating 10 of these centerpieces this weekend.
|Fun Tip: Instead of buying filling for the bucket I am shredding paper myself so the colors will be a perfect match.|
|The Look Who's 1 sentiment is from Pink By Design Take the Cake stamp set.|
|I welded Look Whoos One to a Circle and this will be a frame for pictures of the Birtday Girl.|
|The Happy Birtday Sentiment is from My Creative Time Many Greetings Stamp Set.|
- The Base for the banner is from the Tag Shadow Feature <Shift>, Button 14 on the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge. These were flood filled with patterns from the Imagine Greetings Inside and Out cartridge.
- The Font is from the Font Feature and Font Shadow Fearture on Birthday Cakes. (this was used on the cupcake toppers, banner, and centerpieces.)
- The Owls are from Create A Critter, Button 2 on the overlay using Layer 2, & 3...I skipped layer 1 since I used googly eyes. (this cut was used on all projects)
- The Rossettes are from the Decor Feature, Button 35 on Something to Celebrate (this cut was used on the banner and centerpieces)
Wow I've been busy and having so much fun creating these projects. :)
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects.
