Erica's Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop


Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

You should have started at Erica's Craft Room, if not please start at the beginning.

This is day two of the 100 Cartridge blog hop with a whole new line up and new projects.  I hope everyone had a chance to check out day one of Erica's talented design team! If you just came from Lucinda's Blog you are in the right place.

My project this weekend is a two page layout ( I hope you can stand one more Halloween!)  I really love this holiday and I'm not ready for it to be over!


I used the following carts on this 'very busy' two page layout. With so many awesome cuts on these carts, I tried to utilize as many as I could!  It was that or you were going to be seeing Halloween until New Years!

Carts~
Happy Hauntings
Autumn Celebrations
Holiday Cakes
Blackletter

Happy Hauntings

<Tree-s> pg 67 #40  Cut 6.27-7.21  ~    CTMH/ Black cardstock
<Tree> Cut 6.83-7.21  ~  Bo Bunny /Orange
The tree was too large to run through the
Cuttlebug so I folded a couple of the branches in to make it fit. I used the Forest Branches folder.
<Gate> pg 62  #45  Cut 7.08-4.06
I heat embossed the gate using black embossing powder , then sprayed it lightly with Chattered Angels Glimmer Mist. See below~


                   I love how it gives it an old rusted appearance.  The gravestones are heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
<Grvyrd-s> (grass with headstones)    Cut 6.07-4.06 ~ Black cardstock
Grass is Layer 1  ~  Green Cardstock
Beware on sign is Layer 1-shift Cut 2.10-4.06 ~ Orange

Autumn Celebrations

Trick or Treaters are pg 59  #48  Layer 2   Cut 7.57-3.21 ~ Black cardstock


Aren't they sooo cute?!

Holiday Cakes

Don't forget to look at these carts for your seasonal graphics, there are some amazing ones!
I went through mine and made a cheat sheet for each season so I wouldn't forget about them.
They are NOT just for the cake machine!

Haunted House <Spooky1-s>  pg 35 #8 Cut 5.54-7.24~ Black Cardstock
<Spooky1> 7.24  ~ Orange/ Bo Bunny

Border <Fall4> pg 63 #46 Cut .029 ~ Black cardstock

Blackletter used for font.

Happy Hauntings

There are 10 very intricate, beautiful frames on this catridge and I used four different ones.
The first size you see listed with each is the size of my picture.  I then used George and Basic Shapes and chose the shape of my frame ( oval, square, ect.), made it the size of my picture then used it in layers on my Gypsy to get the correct size of the frame I wanted. After fitting the two together, I would then delete the George shape and cut the frame.  All my pictures fit perfectly.

Raggity Ann ~ <Frame 8>   pg 45    2.50-2.00 (picture)   Cut  3.08-2.94 (frame)
Cow ~ <Frame 9>   pg 46     2.50-2.00   Cut 3.83-3.79
Jeannie ~ <Frame 7>   pg 44      2.50-3.50  Cut 3.24-4.76
Mermaid ~ <Frame 1>   pg 38      1.50-2.50  Cut 3.24-3.79
Pumpkin ~ <Frame 8>    pg 45


I cut these on lowest speed, medium pressure and blade depth 5 using Close To My Heart Black cardstock. I then heat embossed with black embossing powder.
Green and white dotted paper is Too Cute To Spook by Bella Blvd.

This is my finished project~



This is my granddaughter and some of the costumes I made for her through the years...
WONDERFUL MEMORIES!

Next you should go to Jen's Blog
