Catching up...

I thought I would catch up here and post the projects from my blog hop creations, in case you missed them now 
they are here and over there....





I made this cute little card using the new, Sesame Street Elmo and Friends Holiday cartridge!
I cut Elmo at 4" (I always cute my characters at 4", it seems to make them easy to put together, I have found smaller than that I cant get the pieces off of the mat without something sticking or ripping. Also when I make characters I usually cut extras so I can make that character 3-4 more times without getting my cricut out. Because I always cut them at 4" there is no guess work what size I made them.

I used My Mind's Eye Love Me papers. I also used glitter paper for the gold wings.

Here was the sketch used to make this card.



I actually used clear craft paper for the fish bowl. I used Celebrations to cut the squares and rectangles, I used Animal Kingdom for the fish and fish bowl.

I used older Imaginisce Its a shore thing paper. I used NEW Prima Bling and LOVE it!!!
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for some more great projects!

I made this using Easter Magic, Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Cartridge.
I cut the bunnies and the sentiment at 2"
I used Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth paper for this.
The mesh at the bottom is something I have had forever and it seemed perfect for this. We all had to make a 3-D element in our project AND a bunny! So the mesh is sticky on one side, but you can pick it up and move it if you don't like it and it will not harm the paper. This was brown but not dark enough so I used the same ink that I did on the edges of my card. It is Momento Rich Cocoa, one of my crafting staples.... What would I do without my little Dew Drop inks?!?!
I also used VersaMagic Jumbo Java and Rose Bud Momento Ink.  I cut the circle freehand and then inked the edges. I also use the Round it all by Zutter to round my corners. I also used Cinnamon Stickles for the 'sun burst' effect around the circle. I used used a little brad to gather the mesh and to keep it attached to the paper. The inside of the card was lined with matching paper AFTER I stuck the brad through it. So no one will see my brad or the mesh from the inside of the card!

I'm always a sucker for your cards, Erica ... and Elmo is my grandbaby's favorite! I especially like the glitter paper for Elmo's wings. I have that cartridge -- isn't it great!? -- and cut Elmo the Easter Bunny for a swap group. Even though I cut at 4", BOY, were those cuts intense! Teeny-tiny!! CRAZY!! I do like that paper too, the love love love.

Fondly,
