Erica's Cricut Craft Room Blog Hop

WELCOME! My name is Tracey. Today I am one of the stops in...

October's My Cricut Craft Room's Blog Hop 

You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's October's Blog Hop 
Collectively the design team and guest designers have made some amazing and special projects to share with you... over 60 projects are on this hop, but it is in less than 20 stops. .  

All of the stops along the hop are featuring at least two projects made with Cricut machines. I love using my Cricut along with my Gypsy or the Cricut Craft Room to manipulate images. My favourite thing is making logos or just changing the cuts to suit my photos.

I started this layout by googling images of Mary Poppins. I was hoping to cut her silhouette flying in the sky with her umbrella but then I came across a movie poster and the font looked easy to duplicate.

I used Cricut Craft Room Basics to create this title. The cityscape is from Plantin Schoolbook. The umbrella is a cut from Paperdoll Dress Up.

For this layout, a created the game spinner by cutting out the coloured circles and hand cutting them into pie shapes. I then found an arrow shape and added a brad. I wanted to cut out something that represented our favourite games. I did a Google image search and realized that Skip-Bo cards would be easy to design. I used Cricut Craft Room Basics and Cuttin' Up to create the playing cards. I am very new to using the Cricut Craft Room and am enjoying how easy it is to view all of your layered designs at once and how you can change the color.

I love how they turned out!

Erica invited all of the bloggers involved to also post two older projects. I chose two creations that represent the type of things I love to design. If you would like more info on them you can check out my post with the label "minion" and the post with the label "Core'dinations creative frenzy".

Your next stop on the hop is
