My Cricut Craft Room Surprise 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's "SURPRISE" Blog Hop, by now I am hoping you know what the surprise it. If you do not then please head over to her blog at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/


You should have come from Erica's blog if you did not then please start at the beginning at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/



Erica gave us a theme this month for the blog hop, Wedding, Love, Baby, Family. I choose to create 3 projects using the Wedding and Baby theme, not a big surprise to some since I am loving on my 2 granddaughters, planning my daughter's baby shower, and my son's upcoming wedding! Busy I know! Here are the directions and pictures to the 3 projects I created:



"Thank You" cards


This doesn't have any Cricut cuts but I wanted to make some "Thank You" cards for Erica. I used her colors that she used to create her monogram. LOVE this color combination by the way! Thank you notes are 4x6 size, used Purple cardstock from Recollections, printed out the saying on White Recollections cardstock, the powder blue ribbon is from Celebrate It (Michael's), and the font I used is called: AL Cinderella to make the mongram on the card.


"Congrats" card


I created this "Congrats" card for Erica, hope she likes it! This is an A6 card (4 1/2x 6 1/4):

Black cardstock from Recollections cut at 6 1/4 x 9

MME Meadowlark "Dawn" paper was cut at 4 1/4 x 6 (Front of the card)

Cricut Cartridge "Happily Ever After" Disney Princess: cut out Cinderella and her Prince shadow only at 4 1/4 inches in Black cardstock.

Cricut Cartridge "Gypsy Font": cut out the M&E at .76in and the S at 1.50in. in Black Cardstock.

Special message is inside the card just for Erica and Mike.






"Babies First Year"




A very dear friend of mine son just celebrated his first birthday, he is such a cutie!!! She did his room in vintage Mickey. So I knew what I wanted to make him to celebrate his first year in the scrapbook she does for him.

Recollections printed Scrapbook paper is the background paper, M's just started carrying it.

DCWV Scalloped Yellow cardstock cut in half, applied 1 half to each page.

ALL cuts are from the Mickey Font cricut cartridge, LOVE THIS CART!

"Matthews" was cut out at 1.24in with Red Bazzill cardstock

"Hall of Fame" was cut out at 1.53(shadow in black) and regular in Red at 1.53

Mickey Ears was cut out at 1.41 in black cardstock

Numbers 1-12 were cut out at .88 in Orange Bazzill cardstock

Black photo squares are 2 3/4x3 1/4

White photo square are 2 1/2x3
