100+ Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

I'm so excited for this Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting!  You should have come from Charlotte Simpson Cornett blog, if you did not please go to Erica's blog to start. http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/

There are three things that I have created:

This 12 x 12 scrapbook page was created using the Forever Young, Rock Princess, and Gypsy Font cartridges.  I used Stampin Up! cardstock, pattern paper: Creative Memories & DCWV Hippie Chic.
Flowers by Prima, "M" brad from Michaels, Zig 2 way glue and Stampin Up! dementionals. I also used my Gypsy, and Cuttle Bug embossing folder.
The nail polish was cut @ 2" (I used the embossing folder circles after I cut the bottle).
The lip stick was cut @ 2",  The sunglasses was cut @ 1", and the purse was cut @ 3 3/4" (all from the Forever Young cartridge)
The Mp3 player was cut @ 3 1/4" ( From the Rock Princess cartridge)
The Lettering "On the go" was welded on my Gypsy and cut @ 1" using the Gypsy Font cartridge.

 

This project I used the Rock Princess cartridge. Bag is "Me and My Bag" from Hobby Lobby, Wonder Under from Hobby Lobby, Black fabric paint & Puffy paint silver glitter from Walmart. Fabric that I   also had bought from Hobby Lobby. Ribbon I had on hand, fabric scissors, and a HOT iron. The         butterflies were cut @ 1  1/2".   First I turned on my Iron to the cotton setting, then once it was hot I    ironed the fabric so it was smooth and let it cool down. Next  I cut a 6 x 6 square from the fabric and the Wonder Under. I then placed the Wonder Under (rough side) on the wrong side of the fabric and ironed it.  I then let it cool.  Next I took the fabric with wonder under and placed it on my 12 x 12 cricut mat fabric side up.  I changed my speed on my cricut expression to slow and cut out 3 butterflies.  I took the backing off the wonder under and placed them on my bag. Then (using a hot iron) ironed them on and let it cool.  I then decorated the bag with black fabric paint dots behind the butterflies.  I also used the puffy paint silver glitter on the butterflies so they sparkle. Last I tied ribbon on the handle.  This has been my frist time cutting fabric on my expression and it was really fun!                                                                                                                                                        
                                         

My last project is this butterfly card. I used the Cricut Classic Font and Rock Princess cartridge.  I  also used a Stampin Up! white card, pink cardstock, black cardstock and black stamp and write marker.  Fabric from Hobby Lobby, puffy silver glitter paint from Walmart , and fibers I had on hand.  I had cut the butterfly for the previous project but didn't like it with the purple bag so I saved it for this card.  I cut the "For You" from the Cricut Classic Font cartridge @ 1" but first I used the gypsy to weld it together.  I layerd the pink cardstock on my card ( 4 x 5 1/2") then I added adhesive to the back of the butterfly and placed it on the card.  Added the "For You" and fibers.  I also use the Stampin Up! black writer marker to add dotted line behind the butterfly.                                                                
Thanks for stoping by!  Now on to your next stop which will be:  Connie Benford Layman.
