And start at the beginning.  I know all my DT 
did a fantastic job on their hop projects today. 
So, please sisters make sure to check out each of 
their Blogs and leave my sisters some blog love. 

Who Doesn't love Blog Candy!!  Jenny over at 
Crazy About A Cricut is giving away the My
Memories Sweet Suite Software to one lucky
Blog Hopper.  To enter leave a comment on
 ALL the stops in this Hop. (there are only 5 
of us, so easy peasy)

For todays project Jenny sent all of the 
Design Team a few Action Wobbles to 
use this month. 

I made this really cute lime green monster
card with the Cricut Mini Monster cart.
This Monster can be found on page 29.
The black base of the card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.
With a purple background of 4 X 5 1/4.
I cut the monster out at 3" and used the
Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch for
the bottom of the title block. The stamp is a 
good old Studio G $1.00 stamp. 

Here is what the Action Wobbles look like
from the back of the monster.

And here is the Wobble in Action!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my fun Monster
card for today. Now please head on over to
my Design Team Sister Sandra to check out
her project for today.  I can guarantee you 
will love it. Please visit Sandra at:

Here is the line up in case you get lost or
need to stop along the way. 

 I hope I have showed you how easy it is to make
a very simple card with just a few supplies.
Have a fun filled crafty day!!

Welcome to Day Two of the Ghost & Goblins Blog 
Hop. If you just came from Jackie's Blog then you 
are in the right place. If you are just checking out 
my blog and want to hop along please visit 

I am so excited for the fall weather to be here 
because that only means Christmas is just 
around the corner!!

For today I made this really cute sucker treat.
I cut a piece of black paper at 6 1/2 X 3 and 
scored at 3 & 3 1/2. The Orange ovals are from
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More on page 83 
(blackout) and are cut at 3 inches. I found
 this cute Martha Stewart all over the page 
punch for the pumpkins face. I used my ATG 
gun to tape the top of the sucker holder closed.
And then tied a green ribbon to make it look 
like the green vines on a pumpkin. This would
make a really cute treat to give to all the children
in your child's class.  To bad my girls (12 &14)
are to old to take treats to school. It makes me 
sad that they are growing up so very fast.

For my second project I made this very simple 
card.  I cut my card base in black at 5 X 6 1/4.
The orange poka dot is cut at 4 1/2 X 5 3/4
and the black is cut at 4 X 5 1/4. I used the 
swirl cuttlebug folder to emboss the black.
The whites of the eyes are cut from Tags, 
Bags, Boxes & More on page 83 (blackout)
at 2 1/4, the gray is cut at 3/4 & the black 
is 1/2. The circle can also be found on this
cartridge on page 82 (blackout).

I am your last stop on this weekends hop.  I
 hope you had fun looking at all of the projects 
this weekend. Because I know I had fun making
them for you!!

Welcome to Day One of the Ghost & Goblins Blog 
Hop. If you just came from Jackie's Blog then you 
are in the right place. If you are just checking out 
my blog and want to hop along please visit 

I am so excited for the fall weather to be here 
because that only means Christmas is just 
around the corner!!

For today I made this really fun treat box. You 
could use it as a place card on your Thanksgiving 
table. The box was hand cut at 5 1/2  X 4 1/2. I 
scored it at 1 1/2 & 4 on the 5 1/2  side. And 1 1/2 
& 3 on the 4 1/2 side. Then you cut slits on the 
first two score lines only to 1 1/2. I know I 
probably confused you I will try to take a 
picture of my sample soon to give you a 
better idea.

The circle was cut at 3 1/2 from the Storybook
cartridge. It can be found on page 36. I used the 
swirl cuttlebug folder to emboss the front and 
back. I then chalked the embossing to make it pop 
a little more. The handle is 1 X 3 and the curly 
vines were cut 1/4 X 3.

For my second project I made a very simple card. 
I used the Artiste CTMH Cricut cartridge to cut the 
base behind the vampire. It can be found on page 71
and was cut at 3 1/2. The card base is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.
The blue back ground is 5 1/4 X 4 and was 
embossed with the cuttlebug but, I don't know the 
name of this folder. The Vampire was a 
embellishment I found at Tuesday Morning. I 
knew I had to buy him because he was so cute. 

I am your last stop on todays hop and I hope you 
had fun looking at all of the projects for today.  
Make sure to come back tomorrow for more 
exciting Halloween projects.

October 100 Cart Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 100 Cricut Cartridge 
Blog Hop Day 2. You should of come from my 
Design Team sister Melissa 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. Please hop along as the second half of the 
Design Team shares their projects for todays hop.
Erica is giving away 3 different prizes to 3 separate
winners this month! The first prize is TPC Girlfriends
pink papers, the second prize is the Pink Journey Cricut
cart and last is one Pink little Cricut bug toy. Good 
luck and have a great time hopping.

With Halloween just 24 days away I thought
I would make some really cute treat boxes.
I used Chic & Scary, Tags, Bags, Boxes & 
More, Accent Essentials, Hello Kitty Greetings,
Create a Critter & Art Philosophy Cricut Carts.

For the fist treat box I cut the box at fit to page 
and the witch at 2 1/2 inches. Both cuts are from
the Chic & Scary Cricut Cartridge.

 My second treat box I used TBBM and Accent
Essentials. For the triangle I used TBBM that 
can be found on page 125. I cut it with the fit to
page and the window feature button on. The box
ends up being 4 X 4. For the window on the box I
cut a sheet protector to fit. 

The circle can be found on page 32 of Accent 
Essentials and was cut at 5 1/2 inches. For the
 stars I used Create a Critter. They can be found
 on page 71 and were cut at 3/4 & 1/2 inches. 
used my Uni-ball Signo white pen to add the 
dots to the hat for a little extra pop.

My last project for todays Blog Hop is not
a treat box but a fun Hello Kitty Jack in the
Box. The box is from TBBM on page 119.
It was cut with the fit to page feature and
on blackout so, no side holes were cut. I 
used Hello Kitty Greetings for the kitty 
that can be found on page 70. She was cut
at 4 inches. I cut her head and hands off to
make her fit in the box better. She has stickles
added to her bow, nose, paws & lolly pop.

For the Jack in the Box I made a spring like
we did when we were in grade school. Were
you take the two pieces of paper and fold them
back and forth at an angle on top of each other.

 I added stickles to the rosette to give it a little
extra pop of sparkle. The flower is cut using 
the Art Philosophy CTHM cart found on page 
29. I cut it out at 1 1/2, 1 1/4, 1 & 3/4 inches.
The BOO was also cut using this cart at 1 inch.
I used a Martha Stewart paper punch to add the
white loopy trim. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects for today.
