Erica's Craft Room 100 Blog Hop- Day Two

Pin It

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have come here from Erica's blog-http://ericasprojects.blogspot.com . If not, you will want to start at the beginning at http://MyCricutcraftroom.blogspot.com
My first project features Indie Art and Black Letter. It's a cool duct tape wallet for my son. Here are the pieces of duct tape fabric I made.
 Now I start to piece the duct tape fabric together. On the left side there are 3 pockets for cards and on the right side the clear I.D. pocket and hidden pocket. And of course don't forget the dollar bill pocket.
 I add the silver duct tape to create a nice border around the edges and use Cricut Vinyl to cut out the desired images I wish to use.
My son's initials are cut out at 3 inches using Blackletter. 
 And my son chose the exploding bomb from Indie Art for his wallet front. I cut it out at 3 inches as well and used silver for the shadow feature and black for the regular feature. He loved it...yay.


My next creation would make any sports coach whistle for joy. It's an altered clipboard. I started out with a 9x12 clipboard and the background paper "Cody Benchwarmer"by Love Elsie.
 Using Locker Talk, I cut a banner at 3 1/2 inches tall. I added #1 from Locker Talk to it and also Added a star from the Old West cartridge. I cut the star out of yellow cardstock at 3 1/2 inches and the shadow for the star out of white cardtsock at 3 3/4 inches.
For Coach I used the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge and cut the frame in blue at 3 1/2 inches and then cut the whistle out in brown and yellow and the word coach out in red and pieced them all together.

I sealed the diecuts and board with Modge Podge and added some colorful ribbons to the top along with some buttons for added decor. I hope you enjoy my finished project.

  33. Omgoodness... you made a wallet, and with duck tape... Are you from WV? LOL

    Just wondering on the board that you made... could we use a magnetic board and then do everything you did, and still be able to use the magnets to hold stuff on?

    Just wondering...

  49. WOW, Connie! What cute ideas! I've seen the Duct Tape Wallets before, but never really thought of MAKING one and personalizing it like you did! Very Clever! I have 3 boys, and what Southern boy doesn't think Duct Tape fixes everything?? LOL
    Love the Coach's Clipboard, too! I've seen several personalized clipboards, but nothing quite like this one - PLUS, now I have the INSTRUCTIONS to do one myself! YAY!
    Thank You!
    I am SOOO EXCITED about this 100 Cartridge Blog Hop giveaway. This would be a GREAT start to my collection of cartridges, as I just recently purchased the E2 & am in dire need of cartridges!! I purchased the Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for myself for Christmas. Other than that, I only have the 2 that came preloaded into my new E2. By participating in this Cartridge Blog Hop, my wishlist for the Cartridges I MUST HAVE is getting longer & longer! I have a LONG way to go!
    THANK YOU for your consideration! I look forward to coming back to your blog to see more of your witty creations! :o)
