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!!

Be sure to go back to My Cricut Craft Room to see all of the projects that my
 Design Team Sisters have made. Thank-you for visiting my blog today and
Happy Holidays

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
To see great projects from my design team sisters!!!

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
