For this weekends Blog Hop you will be able to see how to use 
over 100 Cricut Cartridges. I hope you have your note book out 
so, you can take notes of all the fantastic ideas my Design Team 
sisters have come up with for this weekends hop. 

For my first project I chose to use Hello Kitty Greetings & 
Tags, Bags, Boxes & more Cricut Cartridges. 

I used some glitter paper to cut out the Popcorn box at 6 1/2". 
This box can be found on page 131. The handle was cut at 2" 
wide by 8" long and was punched on both sides with a 
Martha Stewart paper edge punch.  Hello Kitty herself can
 be found on page 49 and was cut out at 3 1/2" I used some of
the glitter paper for the heart.  This little box would make a 
fun treat for any Valentine.

For my second project I decided to make a fun Valentines 
card that any chocolate lover would LOVE. 

If you can believe it I ended up using 4 Cricut cartridges on 
this one card.  I think this is the most carts I have ever used 
on one project. The card base came from the Mini Monograms
cart. I took the square on page 126 and welded 2 of them 
together on my Gyspy.  The card base is 5 X 5" and the pink
 background is 4 3/4 X 4 3/4". The Cupcakes are my all time
 favorite Cricut cupcake shape.  They come from page 108 and 
were cut out at 4" and 1 1/2". I embossed them with the swirl 
cuttlebug folder, poka dot folder and scored them upside down 
to give them the paper liner look. I then used brown and pink 
chalk to bring out the embossing. The LOVE cut comes from the
Home Accents solution cartridge. Love was cut at 2 1/2" with
the regular button and then again with the shadow feature. 
Chocolate was cut using the Hello Kitty font with the round
shape letter feature and welding the letter together on my 
Gyspy.  The letters for chocolate are 1/2" tall and 4 1/2" long.
The "I" is 1 1/4" tall. After lots of pop dots to give it lots of
dimension.  I of course had to get out my Bling and add 
a little sparkle to make the card shine.

Here is one last look at my "I LOVE Chocolate" card.
I hope you enjoyed my projects for today.  

So, if you have been reading all of the details you are
in for a treat. I am going to give away some "SURPRISE" 
Blog Candy for todays hop. Because I made you have to
