my cricut craft room 100 cartridge blog hop

happy saturday! welcome and thank you so much for visiting the my cricut craftroom 100 cartridge blog hop!!! the entire team and guest designers are using over 100 different cricut cartridges (collectively)  hope you're having a great time i know for sure you're getting some terrific inspiration. the rest of the dt have created some awesome  projects havent they!
if you've arrived from marilyns blog then your spot on, if not then go back ~>HERE<~ to get you on the right track. at the end of my post ill let you know where to go next plus a complete lineup okie dokes :)
 im entering these over at dlart for dianas linky party be sure to stop on by her blog!
i made a couple of cards and a back to school box using 7 cartridges.

 for this i used walk in my garden for the flower pot 2~1/4 inches and daisies 1~1/2 and 1~3/4) accent essentials  was used for the purple flower (accent 10shift )cutting 2 each in a dark purple and a lighter purple 1~3/4, 1~1/2, 1~1/4 and 3/4 inches. the branches are from storybook (letter H shift)1~3/4 inches)
i added some button bees and memory thread for the  sprigs.

the sentiment is from cardztv stamp set "simply said"
here's the inside
i used a leaf and a negative from a marquee cut from a different project, i don't throw anything away!

i made this card for my stepdad

i used george for this. 
the heart and star were cut at 1~1/2 inches
for the banners i used tag2 (letter L shift) two at 2~1/4 and two at 2~1/2

i roughly hand drew and colored  the letters i wanted to keep the sort of rustic look i wasn't aiming for perfection here. i finished off with twine and buttons.

and here's another. thanks for being so patient :) 
                                           i used baby steps for this sweet baby boy card

the boat ,duck and star were cut at either 1 OR 1~1/4 inch. i adhered them to 1~1/2 inch panels.

baby and  boy were cut at 1 inch. i inked everything up and finished with a couple of buttons and stamped the word sweet.

this card i actually cased from myself from awhile ago. one of my old daycare girls loved it so i decided to remake it for her.  i used indie art for the ice cream cone cut at 4 inches
i used jasmine cartridge for the corners (rectangle shift blackout) i believe i cut them at 3 and also 3~1/4  inches and layered them. the ones around the cone frame were cut at 4 inches.

and heres the back to school box. inside ive added the tiny ruler and a box of crayons .
i cut the box 2 times at 5 inches. then blue cardstock, using the box/shift key, at 5 inches twice. then cut the patterned paper once at 4 3/4 inches. assembled the box then adhered the blue to the front and back.then adhered the patterned paper atop that.elmo was cut at 4 inches. i used thin pop dots under him

the word school was cut at 1 inch. once in black for a shadow effect.
the word box was cut from the word lunchbox  at 1~1/4 inch (abby3 word) i just cut off the word lunch.again i cut in black for a shadow. the numbers were cut at 3/4 inches.

i hope ive inspired you to get out those cartridges and play :)

have fun on the hop!!!
