Cricut Crafts Blog Hop!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the Cricut Crafts Blog Hop!  Thank you for joining us on this hop, where we are celebrating our beloved Cricut :)  I know there are a few different die cut machines out there, but a lot of us started out with a Cricut, and still love the images, and all the creations we can make with our bugs!  I used my E2, and also my Gypsy in making my projects.  

So let's get hopping!  I made 2 projects to share today. Here's project #1:


*Animal Antics Cricut cartridge
*Lovebug Creations - Rumple Ribbon (Lemonade)
*Prima - patterned paper
*kraft gift bag from my stash

Here are the sizes of my cuts:

*Green mat - 4 1/2" x 7 1/2"

*Orange mat - 4 3/" x 7 3/4"

*Unicorn and all layers - 4.64" 
If you're not using a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, I would size the layers at 4.5".

*Sentiment - 4.45" (cut 2x in different colors)
If you're not using a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, I would size it at 4.25".

*I've been DYING to use this cartridge!  It's got such fun, and quirky characters on it :)

*I popped up the rocket layers for some cool dimension.

My second project is a quick Halloween card using the newest AMAZING cartridge from CTMH, the Artbooking cartridge!  

(If you'd like to grab this fantastic cartridge, head on over HERE.)


*Artbooking Cricut cartridge
*Core'dinations - solid cardstock

Here are the sizes of my cuts (all from the Artbooking Cartridge):

*decorative mat (pg. 71, Overlay feature key) - 4.85" x 6.57"
If you're not using a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, I would size the layers at 4.5".

*yellow mat (pg. 52, Photo Mat 1 feature key and hiding binding holes) - 3.73" x 5.04"
If you're not using a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, I would size the layers at 3.5".

*haunted house (pg. 71, Border feature key) - 2.45"
If you're not using a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, I would size the layers at 2.5".

*The decorative mat cut is on green paper, and the I inked it with purple ink for the tie dye like effect.  And honestly it was a crafty accident, but I love the way it looks!

*I wanted my sentiment to look like the moon :)
