Would You Ever Guess Wednesday

Welcome to one of my FAVORITE Days!  HUMP DAY, the weekend is ALMOST here!!

It's my favorite day because I share with you how I use my Cricut Cake cartridges for something besides making cakes!

I had just purchased theses great Kraft Tags and thought hey let me make something with this for my DT project this week.. You know what? My self agreed with me..

I took this great image on the Holiday Cakes cartridge and scaled it to fit on the tag
The Tag Measures 4 3/4 x 2 3/8
I made my cut 4 x 2 3/8

Filled it with a pattern from the Elise cartridge
I then took the cuts, Love, OX (ha ha it should be XO too funny! I put it backwards)
and the heart and I used my ZING embossing Powders that I just received from the 
Steal Network..

I love how beautiful these turned out and how wonderfully ZING embossing powders work

I used Copper, Silver, & Green EP

(love the copper EP)

I then took my Art Pen and did some stitching and tracing on the tag
I added some Chocolate Ribbon from CTMH
and some Twine for the Tag to complete it

Stop by Erica's Blog My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other
Design Team Members have created for you today..


  1. Beautiful tag! I have some Zing but I am never sure I am using it so it works right. I guess I need to practice more! The copper and silver are so pretty on your tag!
