Welcome to the 100 Cartridge Blog Hop, hosted my My Cricut Craft Room!  You should have been sent to my page by the fabulous and talented Jenny R's Blog.  If you didn't, please see the blog line up at the bottom of this page and start from the beginning.  There are TWO days and over 100 cartridges featured!  You won't want to miss a thing!

Today I will be showing you projects made using Tie the Knot, Songbird, and Create a Critter.

Did you know about the fabulous Monogram font that comes with Tie the Knot?  Well, I used Cricut Craft Room (CCR) to create a monogram ornament for a friend.  I like the look of script much better when writing out a name or using just one letter, so I chose the Songbird font for some of the other ornaments.  I cut them from different colors of adhesive vinyl which I purchased on ebay, and I also cut several small circles - to save time later I cut about 30 small circles out of red, green, white, black, and metalic pink vinyl so that I would have them on hand for other ornaments.

Here is how they turned out after some robbon embelishments:
Using Tie The Knot

Using Songbird

The other project I would like to show to you today is using a modified own on Create a critter - that owl is so cute but her eyes are closed!  I had a friend ask if I could make her owl themed birthday invitations for her daughter's birthday.  This is the design I came up with:

I chose to forgo Layer 1, and used CCR to "steal" the eye shape to cut out of white, and I glued down blue rhinestones for the eyes.  I'd show you the back, but I don't have a picture of a genericinvite without the family's personal information and I'd like to respect their privacy.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my projects today!
