Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cricut Cartridge
Blog Hop Day 2 for September. You should of come from
my Design Team Sister Sarah at:

If not please start at the beginning.

Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut
Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop.
What a fun month for the 100 Cart Hop. Erica is even going to
give a sneak peak of her new stamps that will be released on
September 21. Please hop along as the second half of the Design
team share their project for todays hop.

This month I decided to get in the Christmas mood early.
So, I used Christmas Cheer, Joys of the Season & Tags, Bags,
Boxes & More Cricut Cartridges.

The first card was made using Joys of the Season for 
the mittens. This was a very simple card. But, I loved
the idea that the stickles on the bottom of the card makes 

it look like the mitten were wet.  The mittens can be found
on page 51.  The card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and the mittens were
cut at 2 1/2 inches.  I ran them trough the cuttle bug with
the snowflake folder to get them a little texture and chalked
them with a white chalk to make them pop more.

The second card for today was made using the Christmas
Cheer Cartridge for the ornaments. You can find it on page 93.
I cut it out at 2 1/2 inches. The tree branch is made using the
Martha Stewart branch paper punch and layering them. 
This is also a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.

I love the simplicity of making my own Christmas tags.
I used Tags, Bags, Boxes & More for these tags.  They 
were cut at 4 inches for both the front and the shadow.
This tag can be found on page 91. This tag is one of my
favorite on this cartridge because of the bumpy bumps
by the hole. ( I don't know what they are called LOL)
They flower and circle are from the Art Philosophy 
cartridge. The flower was cut at 1 inch and is on page
27.  I thought the flower needed some texture so I ran 
it through my cuttle bug with the swiss dots folder.
I had to add a little red bling to the center of each flower
to give them a little extra sparkle. The circle was cut at
1 1/2 inches and can be found on page 31. 

My last project for today was made using Joys of the
Season and Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. When I saw this 
mug I though of warm hot chocolate with marshmallows.
Well, I found these really cute tiny marshmallows at 
Target that are candy cane flavored and PINK.  So, of
course I couldn't pass them up.  Well thats where this
project began. The mug and steam are found on page 
51 of Joys of the Season and they were cut at 3 inches.
I did cut a second mug for the back using the flip button.
The box to hold the hot chocolate and the marshmallows
is cut using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and is found on
 page 130.  I cut the box out at 4 3/4. I just love how cute
it turned out.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects for today. Please leave 
me some blog love about what you though.  I love all types 
of comments especially if you think I should do something 
differently. And if you would like to follow me that would be 
wonderful.  Because who doesn't like to have wonderful friends 
that follow them. 

I have a surprise Blog Candy giveaway.  The only requirements 
have is I will need a way to get ahold of you so please leave 
me an email address if you want to be entered.  I will choose 
the winner on Thursday, September 6th. (Because that is the 
first day both my girls will be back in school and I will be all
alone once again LOL) So, be on the look out for your name!!  

For your next stop on todays Blog Hop Please go over to my
Design Team Sister Christina.  I know she will have something
