July 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

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


You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning



Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's one year "BLOG-iversary" of our first 100 cartridge Blog hop!
A year ago the blog was kicked off with the first design team members and daily postings. It took 2 months to get ready for this hop last year. Now we bring it to you the first full weekend of every month.
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop. Sunday the new members of the design team will be announced and some have even made a project to share with you!! What an exciting weekend!!

As special treat enjoy 10% off of your total purchase with Erica's Craft Room Store.
Use the code JULY to see 10% off of your total purchase (No exclusions)
on July 7 & 8. Also on Sunday there will be an exciting announcement!!!

I have used Celebrate with flourish, Cheerful Seasons and Live Simply in my projects today. 

My first project is from Celebrate with flourish, and is a fathers day card I made for my 3 year old son to give to my husband. 


  •  I cut out the #1 dad tag at 4 inches and layered it all together using my sticker maker. The card base is from a Recollections card base $1 pack from Michael's. 
  • I added the patterned card stock to the front by tracing the card base and hand cutting the paper. 
  • I then used a hole punch to punch out the circle that was already in the card base. 
  • The sentiment stamp is from the "Fathers Day" Pink by Design set

My second project is a very cute card using a cute cut from Live Simply!


  • I cut the toad/frog out at 3 inches and used my sticker maker to make each layer adhesive. 
  • He is attached to the front of the card base using some foam pop-dots 
  • The inside is stamped with a very cute sentiment from Pink by Design's "Go Green" stamp set.
My last project for you today is a fun Christmas card using a cut from Cheerful Seasons! I know you are all thinking it is early to be thinking about Christmas as it is only July, but it will be here before we know it! I am also going to be participating in my very first craft show in November, so I am busy working away on making a bunch of cards to have as inventory for that show!


  • I cut the sleigh out at 2 inches and attached it to my card base using foam pop-dots
  • The tag is from a die and stamp are from the set "Goodie Labels" from Pink by Design 
  • The snowflake is from PBD's "snowflakes" stamp set 
  • The sentiment on the inside of the card is also from PBD set "Christmas Wishes
  • I added the twine bow to the top of the label, and used silver stickles for the bling on the sleigh. 
  • The ink used on this card is: Lady bug, Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black from Memento and Silver by Color box
Now for a little blog candy!!
