July's 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

You should have started at if not please start at the beginning

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's one year "BLOG-iversary" of our first 100 cartridge Blog hop!
A year ago the blog was kicked off with the first design team members and daily postings. It took 2 months to get ready for this hop last year. Now we bring it to you the first full weekend of every month.
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during the two days of this hop. Sunday the new members of the design team will be announced and some have even made a project to share with you!! What an exciting weekend!!

I made this cute little bird house with my Daughter.
We got the wooden birdhouse for $1.99 at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
The patterned paper is all Pebbles, The silver is Best Creations.

I used Pretty Pennants and cut this at 2"

I used Divine Twine for the Red, White and Blue twin around the bottom and edges.
I used Star Dust Stickles to decorate the fence and the end of the bird perch. I also wrapped twine around the perch.

I used this lighting to show you how sparkly this is! Star Dust stickles... my favorite.

Here is a close up of the twine on the edge of the roof

Here is how the paper was cut for the hole and how twine is wrapped around the pearch.

Here is a close up of the 2 Cricut made Pennants. Cut at 2"
