Notepad Holder and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Wow…..how I missed crafting!!!  It had to take a back seat for a little bit to tend to family matters.  As some of you know, my daughter was in a car accident.  Needless to say that took priority.  So I thought what better way to kick off a welcome back then do a giveaway!!!  Who doesn’t love a giveaway??!!

While up for many nights browsing some fantastic websites I came across this one that inspired my project for today.  She has a great tutorial on these.  Here’s my notepad holder.

Super cute and super easy to make!!

Now for the GIVEAWAY….

Instead of leaving a comment (although I do enjoy reading each and ever one of them) I was thinking it may be fun to do a linky party.  So leave your link below.  I will pick a winner Tuesday, March 27, 2012.

Today I decided to use Nifty Fifties, Go Canada and Life's a Party Cricut Cartridges.

For my first projects I decided to make two different shape cards.  

The first one is made using Life's a Party for the base.  This can be found on page 27 and is cut out with my gypsy at 4.65".  The layers are also cut out at 4.65".

The "Go Team" comes from the Go Canada Cricut Cartridge and is on page 23.  I cut this out at 2.06" and also used the shadow layer to make it pop.

 Here's my card….

For my second project I used the Life's a Party and Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridges.  The base of my card come from Life's a Party on page 23 and is cut at 4.18".  I used the coordinating layer but hid the image on the layer.  I actually cut two of the layers out.  The first layer is cut at 4.18" and the second layer is cut at 3.94".  The image comes from Nifty Fifties and is cut at 3.94" along with all of the layers.  Here's my card…

Erica’s Craft Room 100 Cartridge January Blog Hop Day ONE!

Mccr_100CARTRIDGE_Blog_Hop

 

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
  
  
You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning.
 

For my project I used the Sophisticated, Campin' Critters and Kate's ABCs Cricut Cartridges.

I like to try to challenge myself and use all three cartridges in one project so others are able to get an idea of different ways to use multiple cartridges together.  I also like to use my gypsy to lay everything out to see if my ideas will work or not.

The base of the card is from the Campin' Critters Cartridge and it's the sign feature on page 51.  I cut this out at 3.71".  The next layer is the sign layer which is also cut at 3.71".

The wording "Friends" comes from the Sophisticated Cartridge.  I used the base/shadow feature to cut out "friends" at 1.24".  I also cut out the phrase feature at 1.24".

P1010761

Next comes the cute little kittens….they are from Kate's ABCs Cartridge.  I cut out the kittens and all the layers at 2.53".

P1010762

 

Here is the finished project!!!
