My Favorite Cartridge Blog Hop- Charlotte's Choice "Nate's ABC"

WELCOME to the Erica's Room "My Favorite Cartridge" Blog Hop!

You should have come here from Serafina's, if you have not please head to Erica's Room to begin. There are prizes along the way, so make sure you go to each blog.

The cricut cartridge I chose to use was "Nate's ABC", LOVE IT!! It can be used for anything I believe, love all of the images on this one!

I created this "A Teachers Life" Frame for this Blog Hop ONLY using Nate's ABC Cricut Cartridge. Love the way it turned out, now I just have to find a teacher to give it to!!

Created this as follows:

Frame holds a 10x10 layout

Cut out a piece of Black C/S (ColorBok Paper) 10x10 size

Cut a strip of Star patterned paper (American Crafts "Celebration) 4x10

Cut out 3 Green paper squares (American Crafts "Celebration) 3in.x3in.

Used White C/S (ColorBok Paper) to cut out "A Teachers Life", size 1.71height

Used Black, Grey, Blue, Black, Orange ColorBok Paper to cut out "Draw, Paint, Cut &Paste"

  • "Draw" was cut out at 1.31height, page 68 (Phrase, Shift Phrase, Layer 1)

  • "Paint" was cut out at 1.31height, page 67 (Phrase, Shift Phrase)

  • "Cut&Paste" was cut out at 1.31 height, 70 (Phrase, Shift Phrase, Layer 1, Glue, Shift Glue)

Added 6 buttons to give it alitte something extra (2 red, 2 blue, & 2 yellow- no idea where they came from just have them in a huge jar)

My Giveaway for this Blog Hop is a... K&Company Accordian Tag Kit, K&Company Journal, and a Making Memories Magnetic Stapler & Color Staples. All you need to do is become a Follower and leave a comment on my Blog. I will draw the winner on May 6th.
