Old School Cartridge Blog Hop!

**Winner of the 3 pack of stickles is comment #36 chosen by Laura, I will be contacting you shortly to get your address. I just want to thank everyone for their kind comments and thank you all for following my blog. Dont forget that I will be giving away a prize when I reach 100 followers again!

Welcome to Holly's Hobbie and the Old School Cartridges Blog Hop! 
If you've come from visiting Amy at, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to and start at the beginning. 

This hop is all about using Cricut Cartridges that are at least 2 years old or "old school"
So get ready for some super fun projects and some fun giveaways along the way!  
After you have finished the hop, be sure to head on back to INKING IT UP CRAZY ( and create and link up a project of your own using one of your older cartridges.  The older the better!

Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas! 

For my project I chose my favorite Cricut Cartridge ever! It is the one cartridge that I think everyone HAS to have... Create A Critter.  

 I chose the cupcake because I am in love with all things cupcake lately. 

Sentiment says "hello sweet thing" It would not show up in the pictures very well.

In order to be eligible for both giveaways please become a follower and leave me a comment that you did so. If you are already a follower, just let me know you stopped by and you will be entered to win as well.
