100 Cricut Cartridge Blog HOP

Hello Everyone! Hope you are having a great Weekend!
I am at Universal Studios in Orlando with my Family
I have not been here in about 10yrs. Pray the rides
dont make me sick. OK enough about that This month
I used Baby Steps, Paisley, & Over the Hill.
I really wanted to make a top hat that is in Over the Hill,
but that hat did not want to be made. So I hope you don't mind
that I had to use something else. I try to make at least one 3-D
item for my hop. That is why I wanted to make the top hat.
Oh well as they say"Scrap Happens" Here is my card that I made
from Over the Hill. I cut it out at 5.5" in CCR.

I really like this card it's on pg.14 and is  really easy to
put together. I used some heavy red texture cardstock
for the card and then used some plain blue for the
layers. Then of course I had to add some bling!
Here is the inside.

I stamped the inside & added  some more bling.
This is on it's way to a fellow DT friend that is having a
hard time. I hope it will cheer her up some.
I have used this cartridge a few times & just because
it is a birthday getting older type of cartridge does
not mean that you have to use it for that. I love
finding different uses for the cartridges. Being on this team
helps me with that.
Ok my next project is another card I made for
my best friend. She HATES dragonflies. But she
and my husband threw me a surprise birthday party.
So I had to get her back. On day I was in our break
room at work and there was a dead dragonfly
on the ground. So I told a fellow worker to
pick it up (cause I was not about to touch it) and give
it to Robin (my best  friend). Well he threw it on her
I never heard her scream so loud! It was very funny
but when she found out I had something to do with it
she was NOT happy. SO I made her this card!


I'm hoping she thinks it is cute. We will see. ;)
I cut the dragonfly out from Paisley cartridge at 4"
Then I added some liquid pearls. Super easy to make
Ok my last project is a LO. I am still working on
a baby book for a girl at work. So I used Baby steps
for this one.

I cut the baby sleeping out at 3.5" and the cloud out at
4.5"  I inked the edges of the cloud with brilliance
moonlight white. The nap time I cut out at 2.5" I
inked the top of Nap because it was too close
to the same color as the time. I tried to make the ink
fad from dark to light. But you can't really tell from
the picture. Well I hope you have enjoyed my projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  16. Lisa - first of all, I hope you had a great time on your little get away vacation! How were the rides?
    I love your card and sorry your top hat did not want to be made! I've had problems when you really want to make something but for whatever reason, the paper or the size just refuses to be cut!
    Your baby book is coming right along! What a wonderful gift!
    The dragon fly story is too funny! I'm afraid you are going to be in trouble with a pay back again!
    Thanks for sharing and glad the hurricane did not cause any trouble your way!

  25. Love the layout, and your cards are adorable too!


  26. Adorable projects, Lisa! I don't have Baby steps but I think I need it now! :)


  27. Lisa- your projects were wonderful! I love the gate on your 'gate card'. I like that is different for the front of the card. Your dragon fly story is funny. I have a BFF that adores dragon flies. I will need to remember that cartridge when her birthday comes around in a couple months. It is so great to see you using Baby Steps, because I just picked it up at the last minute today. I need to help decorate for a baby shower and thought this would be cute.


  28. Hope you are enjoying Orlando Lisa!
    Great projects, love the gate card, very creative :) And yes, scrap happens, and happens quite often to me :)
    Very CUTE baby LO, very sweet, love the colors
