This hop happens the first weekend of every month...don't freak out though, you don't have 100 blogs to go through.  We uses multiple cartridges per blog.  

You should have arrived from Jenn's blog.  If not, be sure to head to My Cricut Craft Room and start from the beginning.  


I am showcasing FOUR different cartridges today.  Baby Steps, 3 Birds on Parade, Fabulous Finds and Birthday Bash.  


My first card uses Baby Steps Cricut Cartridge.  This card will be going to my Nephew who turns One in February.


My card base is 5.75 x 5.75 inches, in blue American Crafts cardstock.  The pattern paper is from Animal Crackers DCWV stack.  I ran the upper solid red portion through the cuttlebug.  

The Happy 1st Birthday was cut at 3.5 inches.  The cupcake was also cut at 3.5 inches.  I used a white gel pen to decorate the cupcake and candle.



This card uses 3 Birds on Parade.


This is an A2 size card.  This is the "swim bird" found on page 33 and is cut at 3.5 inches.  I used Peachy Keen critter faces and colored in the beak with an orange gel pen.  The sentiment came from Pink Cat Studios summer set.  

This card will be donated to Operation Write Home.  If you're not familiar with OWH, they send black handmade cards to the troops to write in and send back home to their families.  It's a FABULOUS organization.  You can help by sending cards or donating shipping funds.



This card was made using Birthday Bash

This card is also A2 sized.  This gift bag was cut at 3 inches and can be found on page 59.  I used American Crafts cardstock.  The pink backgound mat was cut with a nestabilities die.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.  This card is also being donated to Operation Write Home.  This card was very fun to make, I know I'll be doing more in the future.  




This treat box was decorated using Fabulous Finds.

I do believe I have found a new love.  Making little treat boxes and decorating them!  I made the box using the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  It was my first time....and OMG, I do believe I'm hooked!  

I used Fabulous Finds to make the luggage tag on page 108, it's cut at 3.5 inches.  I watched a YouTube video a while back that showed using this cut wrapped around ribbon, I thought I'd try that too.  

The box was cut at 6.41 inches, I used the Gypsy to get the cut size.  



Originally I was going to put a little tissue paper inside my box, however I had some pink felt on my desk and thought I'd try that instead.  I like how it matches my luggage tag.  I filled my treat box with Kisses.



This is a picture without the felt to show you the handles.



Next stop is Marji!


Here's the entire line up ...
