One Enchanted Evening

My Cricut Craft Room

Today's theme for My Cricut Craft Room is "On Fire". This reminded me of the candle lit dinner I had on the beach during my honeymoon in Jamaica. They put these candelabras out, candles in the sand and a white tent over the table. It was so romantic. When my hubby took pictures of it this one looked black and white, and I thought the effect was really cool so I made a layout to go with it.

I used 3 carts for this one. Teresa Collins Black and White Imagine cart to print the black and white paper strip, French Manor for the chandelier, and  Life's a Beach for the wave border. I think it came out really cute. I cut the little flames in the chandelier from silver glitter paper to keep with the "On Fire" theme. For more projects like this please visit

The letter X?

My Cricut Craft Room

Monday's are letter of the day at My Cricut Craft Room, and today is the letter X. Hard one, huh? Yeah that's what I figured so I took it on. I make this Tic-Tac-Toe card because it has X's and O's.

To make this card I cut a 4x4 piece of the blue polka doted paper. Then I cut the X's and O from Base Camp at 1" (real dial size). I used orange twine to make the lines for the Tic-Tac-Toe board because I couldn't find a number sign that I liked. They are all slanted, so that wouldn't work. I cut the white square at 4.5x4.5" and the the striped paper at 2x5" and punched it with a Fiskar edge punch. I thought that Good Luck was the perfect sentiment for this one because it's a game and you want to win.

T is for Teacher

My Cricut Craft Room

It's the end of the school year and time to give those thank you cards to your kid's teachers. Today I have a super cute card for My Cricut Craft Room using American Craft paper and the Happily Ever After Cartridge.

This is Snow White's Apple, and I though it was cute for a Teacher Card. I cut it out at 3.5". The sentiment is printed from my computer. For more projects like this one please visit

June 100 Cartridge 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.We have loads of cute projects for you today!

Today my project is a layout for my Goddaughters scrapbook.  This will be the very first page of her book. Used Songbird for the font, because I love the semi-cursive font. Then I used Storybook for the large center medallion. I find that it's my go to cart for these types of shapes. I cut the stars from Doodletype because I like that they are not the perfectly symmetrical ones.  I used Best Creations glittered cardstock, which is one of my favs because it doesn't shed.
