Scrapbook Saturday

It's scrapbook saturday at My Cricut Craft Room.  I decided to do one more Thanksgiving project!  I love taking pictures and thankfully got a great Family picture on thanksgiving!  I created this layout for my family picture!

For this layout I used two cartridges - Autumn Celebrations and Create a Critter.
The title - 'I'm Thankful For...' was cut from Autumn Celebrations at 4.5 inches.
The adorable turkey was cut from Create a Critter at 3.5 inches! I love this turkey! So cute!!!

Hope you and your family had a great thanksgiving! I sure did!  Oh and I was able to get the Imagine!!!! Yeah!  So after the new year you'll be seeing some Imagine projects too!!

Festive Friday

Well it's Festive Friday at Erica's Cricut Craft Room! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  And I hope everyone scored some good deals today on black friday! Hopefully I am back from shopping by the time you read this and have scored a new Imagine at Walmart!  If so, you can bet that in the new year I'll have lots of Imagine projects to share!!!

For today's Festive Friday I decided on a Home Decor project! My kids helped me with this, so don't mind the air bubbles in it!

It was great to be able to have my kids help with this Thanksgiving charger plate! They loved seeing the turkey come together!!  I cut the turkey and the 'Gobble Gobble' from the Create a Critter cartridge!  The turkey is cut at 5 inches and the words at 1 1/2 inches!  It was so much fun to use vinyl with my cricut machine!  I'm sure you'll be seeing more projects like this in the future (hopefully without air bubbles next time!)
Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving!  Don't forget to check out all the other great projects at Erica's Cricut Craft Room!!

My IMAGINE-ation Monday November 14, 2011

Welcome to My IMAGINE-ation Monday on My Cricut Craft Room.  This is the day the design team highlights projects made with the Imagine machine or with Imagine cartridges on the E2.  I don't have an Imagine yet (hopefully will get one this holiday season!)  But I do have the E2.  I finally used one of the Imagine carts in  my E2 machine to cut out an image.  I recently purchased the new Santa Village cartridge.  The images are so cute on this cartridge. I can't wait to print them on an Imagine!

This was my first time using my E2 and an Imagine cart. Here is what I came up with!

I cut the christmas tree and all of its layers at 6 inches.  Now normally with the Imagine you can print the entire tree and ornaments on one layer, or you can choose to print and cut each layer seperately.  With the E2 you can only cut the layers, no printing.  I think it still came out pretty good though.
The sentiment on my card is from My Creative Time - Mixed Holiday Sentiments.

Hope you enjoyed my first My IMAGINE-ation post!

Since Erica loves all things Disney I decided to make a layout with Minnie Mouse on it.

I used 3 cartridges fro this layout:
Mickey & Friends
Accent Essentials

Minnie Mouse and all her layers were cut from the Mickey & Friends cartridge at 4.5 inches.  The title, You make me smile, is from the Phrases cartridge.  I cut this at 2.53 inches.
For the frame I used Accent Essentials cartridge and cut this at 3.71 inches.

Theme Day Thursday - Birthday Party

It's theme day thursday at Erica's Craft Room.  This week's theme is Birthday Party!  This is the perfect time for me to show the birthday decorations I made for my daughter's 5th birthday!  She decided on a Pinkalicious theme for her party, in honor of her favorite book!!  So it was very easy to come up with ideas.  Pinkalicious is all about the color pink and cupcakes!!!  I decided to use the Princess Party event cartridge to make most of these decorations.

I started off making a Birthday Banner!  I used the Castle from the Princess Party cartridge as the base for my banner.  I cut this at 9 inches.  I then cut out a heart from this cartridge as well at 12 inches to go on top of the banner.  The letters were cut from  Birthday Bash  at  2.65 inches.  At the ends of the banner I cut out a pink cupcake from Sweet Treats, and a crown from Princess Party.

I also cut out crown cupcake holders (again in pink! It is a pinkalicious party after all!) from Princess Party.  I found that cutting them at 4inches fit the standard cupcake holders perfectly.

Part of the birthday party was letting the girls decorate their own crowns and wands!  This Princess Party cartridge is amazing for giving you ideas for a whole party, from inivitations to decorations to craft projects, etc.  I love it! The girls all loved being able to decorate crowns and wands.  Give little girls glitter, glue, and some bling and they will be in heaven!  I cut the crowns out at 7inches and the wands at 9 inches. 

I hope you enjoyed a peak at my daughter's fun crafty Pink birthday party! She and all her friends had a blast!  Next year she's thinking Barbie so maybe Provo Craft will come out with a Barbie cartridge by then!!!  Don't forget to check out Erica's Craft Room for all the fun Birthday posts today!

November 100 cart blog hop

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have started at if not please start at the beginning

Welcome to day 2 of the 100 cricut cartridge blog hop!  Day 1 was amazing and I'm glad you are joining us for day 2!
Hopefully you have hopped along and came from Amanda's awesome crafty blog!
For my project today I created a two page 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' scrapbook layout.

I used 4 different Cricut cartridges on this layout:
Christmas Cheer
Joys of the Season
Winter Frolic

The title for the layout was cut from Storybook cartridge at 1.15 inches (using my gypsy)  I love this cartridge for the fonts on it!  Really is a great cart.

Santa, the reindeer and the sled were all cut from Christmas Cheer cartridge.  The reindeer and sled were cut at 3.15 inches and the santa was cut at 3.47 inches.  This is an awesome Christmas cartridge! Very whimisical and such cute cuts!  I love using my Gypsy when I'm scrapbooking so i can size my cuts exactly how I want them and save paper while I'm scrapping!

The house is from the Joys of the Season cartridge! This is another awesome Christmas cart.  The house and all it's layers were cut at 7.77 inches.  You can't really tell from the picture but I used white glitter paper for the snow!

The snowgirl was cut from Winter Frolic at 3.15 inches.  I used my gypsy to hide the face cuts and instead cut just the carrot nose and added some black bling for eyes!!!

Well that's my layout for today's hop!  I hope you enjoyed it.  Make sure you hop along and check out all the awesome projects along the way!  Don't forget to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win Erica's awesome blog candy!
