January's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE



Here is my banner for a kids project that I am participating in.


I made these banners using the Cricut Craft Room and Art Philosophy and I edited the monogram feature from A Child's Year. I seem to find more and more ways to use that cartridge. I then used red and Diamond Black Stickles for some sparkle and Silver Liquid Pearls for the lighter dots.
I have the files I have created and would be more than happy to share them, except I don't know how to add a file here for you to download. So if you would like the two files, please email me EricaCraftRoom@aol.com and but in the subject line-
 Bee Happy Banner Files and I will get them emailed out to you.


It was an oval but I wanted a circle so I just expanded the width in Criut's Craft Room
and I got exactly what I wanted.

Erica Craft Room is my facebook name, make sure to add me


Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for 20 new blogs and projects!
I will also have about 3 new projects to show you!


Next you should go to Rosa's Blog.... 


If you get lost along the way here is the entire line up for today.
