100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

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


It is the first weekend in February and it is time for the

100 Cartridge Blog Hop with Erica's My Cricut Craft Room!

This is my first opportunity to participate in a Blog Hop with a project (projects, in this case!).

You should have arrived here from Vicki's Blog

I selected to use the following 3 Cricut Cartridges in my projects for this month:

Winter Woodland, Birthday Cakes and Wedding/Marriage


Project Number One

My first project was a birthday card for my daughter who just turned 2121 on her late January birthday! She loves tea - and I AM SURE that was her beverage of choic E n her 21st birthday, aren't you??

But knowing she really does enjoy a nice cup of tea and that I got her a really cute tea set as one of her Christmas gifts - I designed a tea set birthday card just for her!

(I sent her a "store bought" card to get there in time for her birthday but I have yet
to send this one! Time to get it in the mail, don' t you think?)

It is a unique shaped card. I used the Tea Pot from the Birthday Cakes Cartridge (page 44). Using my Gypsy, I welded two small rectangles (from Plantin Schoolbook) to the bottom of the tea pot to form the fold out arms. From there, I attached the tea cup, also from the Birthday Cakes cartridge (on page 54) ) on the right side and also attached a rectangle (from Plantin Schoolbook) to the left side.

I then got to work doing some decorating. As you can see, I embossed the tea cup in the Cuttlebug using my Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. I cut some extra hearts from the teacup page and used them across the bottom rim of the card, front and back.

I made a double layer of the front of the teapot so I could cut a slit

and slide in an actual tea bag as a special little gift!

As a fun embellishment, I strung beads on a wire and then wrapped it around the base of the teacup.

The teacup was cut two times, both sides embossed and then

glued onto the base of the card.

Difficult to get a good close up view of the wrap around beads,

but I think you can understand!

The front left side says "Happy Birthday" on the front and I left

the back of that rectangle blank for the sentiment/signature.

The back was covered with decorative paper as well

and the base was also decorated with hearts. The butterfly

is my "signature" stamp that says

"Created with Love by Teresa Kaufhold"

n to Project Number Two!
Pillow Box As A Bridal Shower Gift

I used The Wedding/Marriage Solutions Cricut Cartridge to make my next project.
My niece is getting married in May and she is having a bridal shower in February.
As one of her gifts, I made a pillow box in her wedding colors.

My niece is having a Bridal Shower in a couple of weeks so I made this for her!

Kaity's Wedding Colors are shades of blue with a touch of pink!

I used the bridal gown cut and did one layer in a shimmer paper layered over another shade of white plain paper. I used dots of stickles across the bodice of the dress for some "bling" and glamour!

I used the base heart cut for the heart and then welded Kaity and Adam's names inside the heart. I used foam dots to pop up the dress off the box and a "gem" to dot the "I" in Kaity's name.

On the back, I cut the swirl heart that I just love from the Wedding/Marriage cartridge.

Now to just figure out what to "hide" in my pillow box!

, Project Number Three!
osty Kisses

A Valentine Treat Holder
Last But Not Least = a treat bag topper for Valentine's Day!

For this cute treat bag, I used the Winter Woodland Cartridge and

cut the image "Frosty Kisses" (page 65) out of mirrored silver page

(for the cool, frosty look) and the word "Kisses" out of red paper.

I cut the Base shape to layer the words on and then layered those

words on top of the tag shape on the same page.

I felt the silver paper and the foil wraps gave the "frosty" look to this project!

Using the Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots embossing folder, I embossed the

red layer of card stock.

I cut a rectangle of the silver mirrored paper, embossed with the Heart Embossing folder in the Cuttlebug as the header for the treat bag.

I used form squares to raise up both the swiss dot tag as well as
the base layer behind the words Frosty Kisses. I love the
dimension this has!
The silver mirror cardstock is also embossed on the back side.

To give a special little "added touch" I cut
circles from page 32 of Winter Woodland

on the bottom of the kisses.

I am very happy with how this little treat bag turned out!
