100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to the 100 Cartridge Blog Hop.

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop

 If you are joining me from Dana's Blog  then you are in the right place. If you happened across my blog and would like to play along in our fun hop, you can go to My Cricut Craft Room at and start at the beginning.There are many talented ladies in today's hop. This is a two day hop so be sure to come back tomorrow to see the second half of the blog line up.  The idea of this blog hop is to show you how to use 100+ cartridges.

My project today is a layout in honor of Valentines day. For this layout I used Gypsy Font, Gypsy Wanderings, Jasmine, Storybook and Tie the Knot.

The large red medallion (or shield or tag, what ever you want to call it) is from Storybook. I used Imagnisce double sided paper, and the background pink paper is the other side of  the paper. 

The black flourishes on the medallion are from Tie the Knot. I really like how they follow the curve of the medallion. 

The word "close" is from Gypsy Font. The heart is from Gypsy Wanderings. But I didn't like how the "to my" looked in Gypsy Font so I switched to Jasmine for that part. The cream colored paper from Chatterbox, and it has a light patter of glitter on it that you can sort of see in the photos. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the edge of the cream paper, and that little strip of cream is actually part of the left over from the punch. The plaid ribbon is from my local craft store.
