How Does Your Garden Grow with My Cricut Craft Room

If you didn't you will want to go back so you don't miss anything along the way!!!


I am very happy to be a part of this hop with all of these crafty ladies! Here is a picture of project my then I will tell you how I made this layout and all the cuts and cartridges used.
.

On this layout I used 5 cricut cartridges. I always use Cricut Craft Room as my main design tool so I am able to use any cartridge I own and design a project using multiple cartridges I love it! O.k the Gazebo is a 4 inch cut from Spring Cottage. This cartridge does not have feature choices so I used craft room and went into edit and erased all the cut lines so that all that was left was the outline which is the same as using the blackout feature. I then did the cut again in the standard way that is on the cartridge. Using the same cartridge I cut the tulip leaves and tulips at 1 inch. I used the Flower shoppe cartridge to cut the other 2 flowers at 1 inch and put little rhinestones in the center.. The stems on those flowers are from Walk in my Garden and were cut using the blackout feature at 1.25 inches. The Enjoy Life cut is from Graphically speaking and was cut at 1.25 inches. The clouds and the butterfly are from Craft Room Basics which is only available using the Online version of Cricut Craft Room. I used Doodle Twine for the body and antennas. The little Bear and net were cut using the Imagination Cartridge Enjoy the Seasons. I used 2 machines to do my cuts. I used the E2 and the Imagine machine. The sparkle that was added to the cuts is Star Dust Stickles. It is the first thing I grab to add a touch of bling or to highlight certain cuts. What makes it different than other stickles is that this one allows the original color of the cut to come through and it just adds a touch of sparkle. It is one of many little tricks that I have learned from Erica's UStreams and from her blog. I hope you enjoyed my layout and will come visit my little blog again! I love to hear what you have to say so please leave a comment:) Next you will be going to visit
