Winner will receive a $25 gift code!


To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project:


I made a shaker card using images from several image sets. The clown is from Create a Friend, the shape is from Elegant Edges. I used a circle from Picturesque to slice out the background for the acetate. The swirl is from Wild Card. All of the solid paper is from Recollections and the pattern is from my stash.

Come join us with your projects!

Love at BBTB2

It's love week at BBTB2. This post is going to be really short, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. 

I took an image from Groovy Times, enlarged it and created a shaped card. It turned out pretty cute. Have a great week and come join us with your love themed goodness.

Skating at BBTB2

Susan chose the theme of ice skating this week at BBTB2. I love all of the images from the Hello Kitty Holiday image set and use them as often as possible. This is a combination of 2 images that worked well together. 




All of the paper is Recollections. I used Stickles on the snow and put some green ribbon from my stash behind the snow globe for a little additional color. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for some added texture in the background.

Come join us with your skating project.

It's time for SNOW at FCCB!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Pretty Cute Stamps

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Any project that doesn't use a Cricut element will be deleted.

Here is my project:


I used a snowflake from the Winter Lace image set and made a CAS card for this challenge. I had the Cricut write the lines on in silver marker and added some bling for a little more interest. The blue paper is pearlized so there is some shine to the card that is more visible in person.

It's Elvis' Birthday Week at BBTB2

This week we are celebrating Elvis Presley's birthday at BBTB2 by creating projects that somehow relate to the "King". 


I made this card with a "hound dog" from Four Legged Friends and added the hair from Photo Booth Props and the crown from Royalty.

It's a "New" year at BBTB2

Happy New Year! Maureen chose the very apropos theme of something "new" for the first challenge of 2017 at BBTB2. My "new" is this resolution that I found on Pinterest. It's actually going into my classroom as a reminder to my students, especially the seniors, to stay on track this quarter. The third quarter is always the hardest for them.


The entire card, with the exception of the scalloped circle, is made from basic shapes. The scalloped circle is from Wild Card. The font is Dear John. I hope everyone's year is off to a great start!

Nativity or Menorah at BBTB2

DT sister Susan asked us to make a Menorah or Nativity project this week at BBTB2. Here is my Menorah card, it's almost the same as hers (hers is prettier), weird huh? 


I used elements from the Family Album image set to create the card. It's supposed to be a scrapbook layout but I resized some of the elements and removed others. Here is a link to the DS file if you would like it. Everything is in the subscription so you should be able to cut it if you have that.

I have very little Christmas shopping done and nothing mailed. Everyone is going to be out of town so they'll get it when they get back. We have to go to school through Wednesday and it has thrown off my normally late timeline. Now it's just ridiculous! I hope everyone has a peaceful holiday season.
