Giving Back Blog Hop

Welcome to the Giving Back Blog Hop!  We wanted to give back to the person who has given so much to us!   So, this is in honor of Erica from My Cricut Craftroom.  

You should have come from Patricia at  If you are starting at my blog, you will want to start with Kat’s Blog so you don’t miss any of the great layouts.   When you get done hopping, you will want to go to Erica’s Facebook Page ( and leave a comment on her page.   We will be randomly selecting someone from those comments to win blog candy.

I was so honored to be asked to participate in this hop! I have had a blast being part of Erica's design team, so it is nice that we are able to give back to her! Since I have never met Erica in person, I don't have any pictures of us together. So I have left the page blank for her to put in a picture of her liking!

The next stop on the hop is Ricki at

The entire lineup in case you get lost is listed below.

November 100 Cartridge Blog Hop!

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

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

I have used 3 cartridges for you today, and will give a little info about each project.

  • This wheelbarrow is from Cheerful Seasons and is cut at 2.5 inches
  • It will make the perfect tag for a fall layout page. 
  •  These name place setting tags are cut from Thanksgiving, and will be used on my Thanksgiving table.
  • They are cut at 1.5 inches
  • I choose to hand-write each name on the front rather than try and cut out the letters. The names could also be put on using sticker letters. 

  • This owl is from Hoot 'n' Holler and is cut at 2 inches
  • This was attached to a toothpic and made into cupcake toppers! 
  • Because the black dots for the eyes cut so small, I just used a black gel pen to fill in the eye holes.

    Theme Day Thursday - Retro

    Hi and welcome to Theme Day Thursday! If you would like to see more Retro projects, head over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other design team members have made!

    Today's project is a birthday card for my mom! Her birthday is next week, and I figured this would be a perfect theme to make her a card with. :)

    Items uesd:
    • A7 card base
    • patterned paper
    • blue, black and white cardstock
    • Nifty Fifty Cricut Cartridge
    • pop-dots
    • ATG adhesive
    • Memento Ink
    • PBD sentiment stamp
    How to:
    • I started by cutting the Route 66 tag from Nifty Fifty at 4 inches 
    • I cut the patterned paper down to fit the front of the card base. Before attaching, I used a distressing tool to distress the edges of the patterned paper as well as the edges of the card base. 
    • I attached the tag to the card using pop-dots 
    • Last, I added the sentiment stamp to the inside of the card
