Veteran's Day Blog Hop Nov 12th

America is the Land of the Free, because of the 
brave. Veteran’s Day celebrates and acknowledges 
the service of all United States Military Veterans. 
Today we honor the brave men and women
who have served in the American Military. With 
great respect, and a heart full of pride, we say a 
great big THANK YOU to those who have served. 
Please hop with us as we pay homage to the 
people who help keep America the Land of the Free.

You should of come from my friend Marji's blog. If 
not then you need to start at the beginning at 
Melissa's blog. You wouldn't want to miss out of 
some fantastic projects for today.

For todays Hop I decided to make a really simple 
flag card. It might not look simple but, it is really 
easy to put together. 

started off with a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 blue card. You can 
make your own card bases really easy by simply 
cutting a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock in half.  
Then you will have 2 card bases. The red and white 
stripes started off at 3/4 X 12. Then I punched them 
with a Martha Stewart paper punch. After 
punching all 12 I cut them down to 5 1/4. When 
that is done you just layer them one on top of the 
others. Easy? Right.

The blue corner is 2 X 2 1/2. The stars are a really 
old paper punch I had. But, you could use any star 
shape. Mine are 3/4 inches. I added some $1.00 
bling I bought at JoAnns. I used my favorite white 
pen to add "stitching"around the blue corner. 

I hope you enjoyed my flag card for todays hop.

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's
100 Cricut Cart Blog Hop Day One!

You should have arrived here from the fabulously
 talented Lisa.  If not you will want to start at 

Collectively the design team has used 100 Cricut
cartridges to create our projects. This month the 
Design Team was asked to make all our project 
 Christmas projects. 

We are going to have a Disney movie Christmas
tree again this year because I LOVE Disney and
last year my husband bought me the most beautiful 
Disney tree skirt.  We are huge Disney fans in our 
house and I love all the Cricut Disney cartridges
but, when it comes to cutting them out they are not
so much fun.  LOL.  The first cart I choose to make 
our gift tags was Happily Ever After.  Snow White
will be my gift tag.  We will use these tags on our
big gifts. (now to figure out what I want) Snow
White can be found on page 59.  I would never cut
her out any smaller than 6 inches.  I cut the shadow
out in white so we can write on the back.

 My daughter Michaela Loves Jasmine. She can be
found on page 63 of Dreams Come True. I cut her
at 6 inches also.  All the princess have so many 
small pieces they are very hard to put together 
when you cut them smaller.

Tinkerbell is my daughter Emily's very favorite
Disney princess. (well she really isn't a princess 
but, in our house she is) Thik can be found on the 
Disney Classics Cricut cart. I cut her out at 8 inches
because she is one of the smallest Disney characters
and she cuts smaller than the regular princess.  Thik
is on page 47.

Jiminy Cricket is also from the Disney Classics
Cricut cartridge. He is on page 56. I cut him at
7 inches because just like Tinkerbell he cuts smaller.
I thought my Husband would like him.  

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas tags for
todays hop. 

 You should now hop on over to my DT sister
Tammy. I know she will have a fantastic project
for todays hop.  

Here is todays line up in case you get lost or
would like to take a break.
