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.
