Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop!
You should have come from Christina.
If not please start at the beginning at My Cricut Craft Room so you don't miss any of todays wonderful creations.
This is my first blog hop and I am SO excited about it! For the hop I chose Sweet Tooth Boxes, Everyday Paper Dolls & Hoot 'n Holler Cricut cartridges to work with.
My first project is using Hoot 'n Holler. I like doing all kinds of different scrappy, crafty things so I decided this owl would make a cute pendant & earring set.
How I did it:
I wanted it to be nice and durable so I cut 4 of the bottom layer, 1 middle layer, 1 top layer and 1 set of eyes for each piece of 'owl3' on Hoot 'n Holler (my pendant was cut at 2" & the earrings at 3/4"). Using Hard Coat Mod Podge I began stacking the layers with a coat of Mod Podge in between each one. After I had it all put together I put 3 coats on both sides and the edges of the owls. Once dry, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole thru the large owl. I attached an O-ring to it and hung it on an organza necklace.
For the earrings I used my EuroPunch to make the holes because I needed something that punches a tiny hole but could go through the thickness of the diecut. I attached hypo-allergenic French earring hooks to the smaller owls and my project was completed. All 3 pieces only took about 30 minutes to make. SO quick and easy, not to mention adorable!
Saving the best for last, is my Sweet Shoppe.
This little cutie would make a sweet gift for the baker in your life.
This is the store box on Sweet Tooth Boxes and it's cut at 10". The baker girl from Everyday Paper Dolls and all her clothes are cut at 3". I used Peachy Keen stamps on her face and cut the planter boxes by hand and added them to the windows.
The front of the shoppe, where I turned the door upside down and made a step because I didn't care for how the door looked originally.
The other side of the shoppe, where you see the bakers bowl, measuring cup and spoon just waiting for her to come and bake up something tasty!

A peek at the goodies inside.
