100 Cart Hop- MCCR

Welcome to My Cricut Craftrooms 100 cartridge blog hop..
 I'm so excited you stopped by today..

You should of arrived Here from:  Erica's Projects 
If you just stopped by and want the join us for the hop, you can start the hop at My Cricut Craftrooms blog

Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop.  
What an exciting weekend..

I created three layouts I want to share with you, so this will be a super long post, just bare with me..LOL
for my first layout, I chose to use Boys Will Be Boys cartridge:

I started by cutting a large circle 10" with my George and Basic Shapes cartridge, in light blue.
Then added the clouds which can be found on Create-a-Critter. the round clouds are cut at 2.5" and the flat edge are 3"..
the little planets are on Every Day Paper Dolls and are cut at 4" and 6" for the bigger one.. I cut them in half and tucked the cut side under the circle, I didn't want it to bulk out..

the space ships are on the Boys will Be Boys cartridge and they are both cut at 3.25".  the little stars are on George and Basic Shapes, which are cut at 1".

The shooting stars are also on the Every Day Paper Dolls and are both cut at 5".. I chalked the edges with orange chalk and then added some detail with white marker.. The moon and the title font are from the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge. The moon is cut at 3" and the font is cut at 2.25"..
The little aliens are also on the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge, they are both cut at 3"..
The title is also cut at 2.25" and in many colors. It's located on the Boys Will Be boys cartridge..

and then for my second layout:
I wanted to use one of my all time favorite cartridges and that is "COUNTRY LIFE!"

This is a layout I created of my daughter and friend Sini.. I had a lot of fun adding the prints off of the Imagine More cartridge along with the cuts from Country Life.. I think they look pretty good together..
There is a glare in the photo from the sun, I apologize, but Mr.sun wanted to join the party..LOL
I started off by printing the background prints with my Imagine and then the large circle, which can be found on George and Basic Shapes, but if you use CCR then  you can find a circle cut in the Cricut Basics..
 My cute little chickens are all cut at 3".. which I then attached to my layout using foam tape.

Mr. Porky is cut at 3.5" and this title font is 1", cut twice.. once in dark brown and then again in white.. there is no shadow for this font, but you can create you own..
 the "CHICKS" is cut at 1.5" and is located on the Country Life cartridge under fonts..
The banner is also on the Country Life cartridge.. I cut the brown at 2" and then again in prints at 1.75".  The font size is 1".. I also attached the banner with foam tape, once it was in place I ran some glossy accents on the top and attached some twine.. 
small details, I added faux stitching with a fine tip black marker.. 

and for my final project for this hop:
I wanted to use an Imagine cartridge exclusively.. so, I signed up for 

and here is my project:
This was a super quick layout I got finished.. I haven't played much with the backgrounds that are available on the Imagine cartridge and so, I thought what a better way to create a layout for the hop than to print out the background.. 
Once again, sorry for the sunny glare..

the only die cuts that I added were the skunk at 4", the Mushrooms at 3".. which are both on the Nursery Tails cartridge..
The title is on the Opposites Attract cartridge.  The work Little (E is backwards on purpose) is cut at 1.25" and the cursive Stinker is cut at 1".. 

The trees are cut at 5.5" and I foam taped all of the die cuts to my layout.. adding small drops of white liquid pearl here and there..LOL
this layout took me under a hour to create.. So, use those background images, they are well worth it..

ok then fellow Hoppers.. 
I want to thank you for stopping by today and looking at three layouts.. I had a lot of fun creating them..
