Hello and welcome to another Card Creating Tuesday by mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com

I thought I would do a simple A2 card today using the Birthday Bash Cartridge.


Base of the card is Paper Trey Ink paper in Ripe Avocado
Pattern paper is K&Company
Bird is cut at 2 1/2 inches
Stamp by Hero Arts Stamps
One 11 inch piece of Green and Maroon needlepoint yarn for the bow
Flower made with randon cardstock in green, yellow, orange and brown
Small green brad in the center of the flower

Welcome to mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com's Card Creating Tuesdays.

I chose to do a shape card using my Gypsy. 

I used the bow from Once Upon a Princess Cartridge cut at 5.25.  I copied the bow, flipped it, grouped it and then welded it together at the top of the bow.  I used the hide feature on the Gypsy to do away with the slits on the card where the polka dots go because I didn't want them showing on the inside of my card.  I put Glossy Accents on the polka dots to give them some depth and added some half pink pearls to them and a large pink crystal at the top of the card. 

Once Upon a Time Cartridge
Bazzill paper in three different shades of pink
Glossy Accents
Zig glue pen
Pink pearls cut in half I found at Michaels
Stamp is a random stamp from Joanns

Hello, I'm Terry and welcome to mycricutcraftroom's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop. You should be coming to me from Tammy's Blog. If you get lost along the way Erica at mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com will get you back on track.

Who doesn't love a PRESENT?

The box was made from medium weight chipboard cut at 6x6 for all six sides and the front flap was cut at 6 x 2 1/2 inches. I covered the box in paper from Me & My Big Ideas Paper Pad.


The base of the cupcake was made using the Doodlecharms cartridge cutting the circle for the flower on page 90 at 6 inches. Find the center of the circle and draw a smaller 2 inch circle in the middle. Cut slits from the outside 6 inch circle to the smaller 2 inch circle and fold the slits up and hot glue together. Cut 2 12 inch x 2 inch pieces of paper and score every 1/4 inch and attach them together. Wrap the scored paper around the circle and hot glue to the base. Cut a 3 inch styrofoam ball in half and attach pop dots to the inside of the ball and slip a gift card in between the pop dots. Slide the styrofoam ball inside the base. Cut a piece of white grosgrain ribbon at 30 inches and stitch with a needle and thread and pull tight. Hot glue the ribbon to the styrofoam ball. Cut 20 flowers on page 91 of the Doodlecharms cartridge and cut them in half and add stickles to the petals. Attach the flowers to the styrofoam ball in three layers with hot glue. Cut a piece of brown grosgrain ribbon and stitch with needle and thread and pull tight and attach above the three layers of flowers. Add another layer of flowers and attach another layer of white ribbon. Attach a binder clip to the top of the gift card and hot glue a wood ball with glitter to the top of the binder clip and hot glue.

The card was made using the Wild Card cartridge. I stamped the front of the envelope with a stamp from Stampin Up "A Little Something For You", added some Crystazzi flatbacks down the front of the card and attached a cupcake made with the Home Decor cartridge and added some stickles and topped it off with a red glittered cherry on top.

"My Favorite Cartridge Blog Hop"

Hello I'm Terry Meyers and Welcome to Erica's Room's "My Favorite Cartridge Blog Hop"! You are probably coming here from Magarita's blog.

I would like to thank Erica from mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com (who is totally awesome by the way) for allowing all of us to get together and design for her first blog hop.

If you are a Cricut, Imagine or Gypsy user and are not familiar with Erica yet, you soon will be, her blog is dedicated to encourage, teach, and bring information to all levels of Provo-Craft machine users. She has complied a 27 Page Cricut Craft Room Guide from Provo-Craft's Help pages from the Cricut Craft Room Program that is available on her blog. She has decided to share this so you can read a little bit about this before you use CCR. So here is a way for you to read about it before you use it. CCR is FREE ! Yea!

Now lets all go hop.......

We were asked by Erica (did I mention how awesome she is) to choose our favorite cartridge to design for her blog hop. I never thought about what my favorite cartridge was before, and after thinking about it I realized that Tags, Bags, Boxes and more is high on my list because it is so versatile. I find myself going back to this one for a lot of my projects.


I used Tags, Bags, Boxes More (my go to cartridge) cut at 12 inches. I used DCWV All Dressed Up paper (this paper stack is go girlie, I love it). Outlined the purse in a really red ribbon I found at Michael's in the dollar bin. I used Crystazzi crystals in sizes 10 and 16 and glued them on with E6000. I added the "Girl" charm on a small chain to hang from the purse.

You can't have a purse without matching shoes.....


I used Forever Young (such a girlie cartridge) cut at 2 inches. I used an American Crafts white gel roller to add the zipper look, a dip in the VersaMark stamp pad and embossed (3 times) with clear ultra thick embossing enamel to give them that shinny wet look.


I will be giving away this cartridge:

To enter, all you have to do is:

1. Follow my blog;

2. Leave a comment under this post letting me know you are a follower; and

3. Go to Erica's Room on Facebook and tell her that I sent you (use my first and last name) and leave a comment under this post letting me know that you did that. I will have Erica from cricutcraftroom.blogspot chose the winner on Wednesday evening.

Happy Hopping!
