Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's one year "BLOG-iversary" of our first 100 cartridge Blog hop!

I've made three fun cards to share with you today. For the first one, I used Crocs Rule!  Such an adorable cartridge!


I cut everything at 2 inches and put it on a 4 inch by 5 inch card base.  I wasn't fond of the contrasting color I used on the phrase, so I whipped out my Cricut gel pens and used the blue glitter pen to color the letters.  Love those pens!!

My second project is from a hidden gem of a cartridge called Speaking of School.  Did you know they had a notecards feature?!  So cute!

My daughter's teacher has an "S" last name so I made her a set of these note cards.  I cut the card and all the layers at 4 inches.  For the markings on the jump rope, I used my handy dandy Cricut gel pens again.  First I "cut" the jump rope with the gel pen housing. Then, without unloading the mat, I switched my gel pen holder for the blade housing and cut it out again. 

For my final project, I was supposed to use Something to Celebrate.  Well, I can't find it anywhere in my Craftroom.  I know I bought it...

So, I pulled out my new favorite font cartridge, Doodletype.  Again, this cart is another hidden gem.  Everything on this card is cut from this cartridge.  Such a fun cartridge.
The base of each letter is a tag with a hole on both sides.  I snipped off the hole on the left side of the H and the right side of the O.  I joined the bases with brads and viola!  The background paper is from the Enjoy the Seasons Cricut Imagine cartridge!

Well there you have it!  I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop! These ladies NEVER fail to inspire me with their craftiness!
