My Favorite Cartridge" Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's Room "My Favorite Cartridge" Blog Hop

Welcome to my page. Hope you are enjoying this wonderful blog hop. You should have came here from  Heather at http://www.papercrafteranonymous.com/. If not and would like to hop along please go back and start here with Erica at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/

The cartridge that I used for this hop was Locker Talk. A very fun and wonderful cartridge that is great for all levels of school from elementary to college.  

For my project I made this little book for my daughter Katelyn to be a little flip book of some things from her 1st year of school. 



 I cut down orange and brown cardstock to 4x6. There are a total of 10 sheets. The inside is alternated colors.
On the front I used the Kindergarten image that is on page 72 and is cut at 3”.  Once again I stayed with the orange and brown combo. I also cut the circles that are on page 45 at 1”. I then cut that in half.  All the lettering in the year and name as well as the ABC-123 is all from Provo Craft stickers. I wanted the year to match but I didn’t have any brown so SHARPIES become my best friend. That’s right I colored the 2011 brown with a sharpie.  The ribbon is just some shear ribbon I found at Joann Fabric. The only thing is I took Scrappy Cat ink in orange that I found also at Joann’s to color the ribbon that once was white. I then used some Studio G glitter glue and added some bling. The inside has nothing inside yet.
Things I used
Card stock -The Paper Company
Printed paper – DCWV grade school paper
Shear ribbon
Provo craft sticker letters
Studio g glitter glue

  28. Great idea if you make one each year you can display it at her graduation party. I made a page a year for each of my daughters and decorated the hallway with it. Only thing I started a month before they graduated.
