October 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the October 100 Cartridge Blog Hop! If you have just come across my blog and would like to start at the beginning, please go to My Cricut Craft Room to start the hop. If you have arrived from Audrey, then you are in the right place. :)

Today I have used 7 cartridge incorporated in my projects to share with you! I started with 5, but as I was putting my projects together realized that I needed some accent cuts that were not available on the cartridges that I had already used.

My first project is this cute pumpkin card! 


  • It is from Wild Card (pg 68) and cut at 4.5 inches. 
  • To get the pumpkin layer for this card, I actually had to cut the card out in black (the base) and again in orange to get the layer.
  • For the inside, I tried embossing the stamp and am not loving the outcome...however I am not going to give up, I just need to practice more! 
 My second project is this really cute list:

  • I started by cutting out the "Giving Thanks" from Celebrate with Flourish at 3 inches. I had originally thought that this would go on a layout, but once I was putting my cutouts on my layouts, I just didn't like how it was looking, so I put it aside and was working on my other projects with this idea popped into my head! 
  • The pumpkins are cut at 2.5 inches and are from Speaking of Fall (pg 11)
  • The numbers are cut at 3/4 inch and are from Cuttin' Up
  • The brown background is a A7 card base
  • The lined paper is cut to 8 inches x 6 3/4
My third project is a 2 page layout using cuts from Cheerful Seasons.


  • "Fall" is cut at 3 inches and "Family" is cut at 2 inches (both from pg 51)
  • The background paper behind "fall" is cut from Christmas Cards at 5 1/4 inches
  • The background paper behind "family" is cut at 8 3/4 x 2.5 inches and I used a decorative corner punch on the corners. 
My forth project is another 2 page layout!


  • The mummy, ghost, alien, and skeleton are all cut at 3 inches and are from Paper Doll Dress Up (pg 49) 
  • They are attached to the layout with pop-dots
  • On the skeleton, I traced the "bone" cuts with a white gel pen to make them stand out.
