100+ Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

Thank you visiting my blog. And thank you to the amazing Erica for being the hostess of this wonderful hop. You should have came from Aman site :), If you didn’t please start from Erica’s site at
For my project I wanted to use 4 different cartridges, well I used 5 :). The cartridges that I used are Tags, bags, boxes and more, Walk in my garden ,Storybook, Christmas and the extra one was Imagine more cards. So with that let me show you what I did with them. Here is all 3 of the projects that I made.

The 1st on is going to be the Noel card

The black cardstock is by the paper company and is an A2 size card.
The noel was cut with the Storybook cartridge at 1 in using the shadow feature.
The brown, yellow and green paper was printed with the imagine.
The tree and the star is from the Christmas cartridge they are on the same key the tree is just shy of 4 in and the star is just shy of 2 inches.
Everything was cut using the gypsy.

Friends Tag

All Paper on this tag is made with the imagine.
Tag is from Tags,bags,boxes and more and was cut @ 7 inches 
The RGB code for the color is 214-166-128.
Friends is cut at 5 ½ with the shadow using the Walk in my garden cart
The hydrangea is cut at 3 ½ from the walk in my garden cart
The butterfly is an icon form the Imagine more cards cart cut at 1
The buttons are from my stash and don’t remember who made them.
I inked the edges with timber brown stays on ink.

I just love the way that it came out.

And lastly is going to my the Hot air balloon card

White card base is from the paper company, card is a2 size
The stamp at the bottom is a stamp that was given to me and sorry I don’t know the company I used stays on ink in timber brown
The blue sky was done with studio G chalk ink
The clouds is a cotton ball that I pulled apart and glued on
The hot air balloon is cut using the Christmas cartridge it is the ornaments that is in the 3rd row down and the 5 one in.  And is cut at 2.41 by 2.87 I used the main and
the shift layer. The layer behind that is aluminum foil  I used standard crochet thread as the anchor line. The paper that I used for the balloon is Stampin up in real red, always artichoke, and kraft.

I Just LOVE this card. Don’t you?
