Countdown to Christmas, Snowman Theme

Welcome to theme day thursday with My Cricut Craft Room!
The theme of the day is Snowman :))
Here are my Cricut Craft Rooms screen shots!

This is the completed card:)

On this Card I used a craftroom exclusive card and it was Card 1 and I cut it at 7.50 inches.
I then used Santa's Village to cut the Snowman.
I took a white cardstock and ran it through my Creative Station and attached it to the inside of the blue card sticky side up. I then sprinkled glitter and patted it down and gently shook the excess off! It is hard to see but it worked great on the snowflakes. I then attached the snowman and he was cut at 4 inches. I used Liquid pearls to add a little dimention to him. The Merry Christmas is a sticker. Craft Room has some amazing individual cuts for the Imagine and Expression and they are really affordable!
Be sure to go back to My Cricut Craft Room to see what my design team sisters have for you.
This will be my last December post for MCCR so
Happy Ho;lidays!!!!

My IMAGINE-ation Monday Santa theme

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Rooms Santa themed Imagination Monday!!!
I have 2 Santa cards for you today but first you will see the screen shot in Cricut Craftroom.

I design all of my projects in Craft Room and would be lost without it. When it is down for any reason I come unglued:) No pun intended. Put it down to lack of sleep! Tis the season and I work in retail so I am always tired!!
On both of the Santa cards I started by embossing the card with a cuutlebug snowflake embossing folder.
The cuts are from Imagine cartridge Santa's village and the cuts were done at 4 inches. The Happy Holidays and Wishing you joy are stickers and not cricut cuts. The Naughty or Nice is a cricut cut. I did outline some areas with Liquid pearls. I love this Cartridge for Christmas projects!!!

Bippity Boppity Boo Pretty Little Princess Blog Hop

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Rooms
 Bippity Boppity Boo Pretty Little Princess Blog Hop
First I am going to show you the Craft Rooms Screen Shots of my Projects:)

Now on this project I used Princess Party and Imagine Cartridge Berries and Cream.
The princess was cut in layers and the size was set at 3 inches. You can see the layers in the first picture.
The cute crown card base was cut at 6 inches on a decorative piece of card stock. So I used the cut only feature on my Imagine. Happy birthday was cut at 2 inches and was cut standard and shadow as you can see pictured above. Now here is my finished project and a little more info:)

The second cut I did of the princess I left white and used a copic marker in a flesh tone to color the white card stock. I used Glam pink stickles to color the crown and outline the pink portion of her dress. I used gold stickles to add to the wand. I put the layered Happy Birthday onto a piece of light pink card stock and rounded the edges and placed it at an angle over the bust portion of card stock. I added Rhinestones to the tips of the crown on the card base and added a rhinestone dragonfly. 
Thank-you for stopping by my blog:) Be sure to go back to

WYEGW with My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to Would you ever guess Wednesday with My Cricut Craft Room!
Todays challenge was to make a coloring page. This was a super easy challenge because Santa's Village which is a Imagine cartridge has 3 black and white pages provided. You can see it in craftroom pictured below.

To get this to fit the page I set it to 11 inches and it was the perfect size.
I then just changed the setting in craftroom to print only. I have to say I love my Imagine machine and am sad to see them discontinued:((( I love to have the ability to print and cut all in one machine.

You could also use this cartridge in your E2 machine and use a cricut marker or gel pen in place of the blade.
Thank-you for stopping by my blog today and be sure to go back to My Cricut Craft Room to see what my DT sisters have created for you!!!

Theme Day Thursday with My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome the theme this week was to make a card and email it to someone! Pictured below is the screen shot of my cuts in Cricut Craft Room.

As you can see I did not use all of the cuts in my project. This is from Christmas Wish and all of these cuts are 1 of 4 options you have on the cartridge. My cut setting was 7.00 inches and I cut the borders down to fit my card. The great thing about this cartridge is that you get all the elements you need for a card or layout with 1 single click of the mouse!! I did add 2 snowflakes from Winter Lace. So if you are in need of a quick and easy card or layout for Christmas then this cartridge would be perfect!!

Welcome to My Cricut Craftrooms WYEGW

Hello everyone this one was a little tough for me. I had to use a bear that was not a main feature from the cartridges. So I used the button feature from a Child's life to make my Bears. I then used Better together for the tag at the top. First I will show you my design with a screen shot from My Cricut Craft Room which is where I design all of my projects.
This is the best design program around I love it!!!
Now here is my finished project

Because the bears were a button feature you can't layer them so I pulled out my handy dandy stickles to give them features. They are cut at 2 inches I used a cuttlebug embossing folder of snowflakes and embossed the white back round then took a gold ink pad I lightly rubbed over the up raised snow flakes. The bow is 2 colors of twine twisted together and tied at an angle The title cut is from Better Together which is an Imagine Cartridge and is cut at 2.75 inches. I did use stickles on 2 of the snow flakes to match the bows on the bears.

Welcome to another Imagination Monday!!

Today I used Imagine Cartridge Enjoy the Seasons.
Here is a screen shot of my design in Craft room

Here is the finished project. I did go in and do the tag in layers as you can see in the screen shot because I wanted to use a different pattern on the base of the tag. The tag is cut at 3.50 inches.
The birds are cut at 3 inches and in order to have 2 of them facing each other I used the flip feature in craft room to make that happen . I used rouge stickles on the berries to make them pop and stardust stickles on the birds. I also used chocolate stickles on the tree trunks and branches to give them texture. In order for the birds to show up I used a chipboard round coaster and used a lighter patterned paper to cover it. The paper I used is Bobunny and I think it was from 2 years ago. So far it is still my fav paper for 
Christmas cards.

Thank-you for stopping by and I love to hear from you! Be sure to go back to

100 Cartridge Blog Hop with My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

You should have started at if not please start at the beginning

If you came from Miranda's Blog then  you are right on track!!!
I have made a few projects for you today!!

Here is my First Project. On this layout I used  Imagine Cartridge Santa's Village and Dec 25th
 Santa in the sleigh is from Santa's village and was cut at 3 inches. The reindeer is from the same cartridge and was cut at 1.50 inches. The Merry Christmas cut was done at 1.25 and is from the Dec 25th Cartridge.
The gold sparkle I added using gold Stickles.

Here is my 2 nd project and on this one I used Santa's Village and Rock Princess
 I started this one by embossing the white card stock with a snow flake Cuttle Bug Folder and tying on the gold ribbon before I attached it to the Red 1/2 fold card. Santa is cut at 3 inches and the cut is from the Imagine Cartridge Santa's Village. The guitar is a cut from Rock Princess and was cut at 2.50 inches. The Jingle bell rock was cut at .50 and is the Heart lettering option on Rock Princess. The cut that the letters are on is also from Rock Princess. When I attached Mr Claus I used a wobbler so that every time he is moved he dances. I wish I could show that here but can't so you will just have to picture him Rocking out :)

Here is my last project.
On this one I used Teddy Bear Parade, Imagine Cartridge Santa's Village, and Imagine cartridge
Word of Mouth

The Believe in the magic tag is from Word of Mouth and is cut at 1.50 inches.
The Christmas Tree is from Santa's Village and is cut at 3.00 inches. The cute teddy bear is from
 Teddy Bear Parade. The images on this cartridge are so cute and there is several for holidays. I chose to use the reindeer.I used every layer feature on this little guy and he is cut at 2.50 inches
The card base is a standard White card stock then I added the snowflake paper and the big bold red and white bow.  I use Craftroom to design all of my projects. After the latest update it has worked so well with my Imagine I love it. Most of my projects are made using my Imagine machine I love being able to design in craftroom and use the colors and patterns available on the Imagine cartridges.  From now on I will take a pic of the craftroom screen so you can see all of the layers laid out. Well that is all I have for you today!! Your next stop should be Lisa's Blog
