Stars and Stripes Forever-Flag or Banner Challenge

Hi everyone, it's Michelle here hosting our challenge this week.  Since the upcoming weekend celebrates the 4th of July, my challenge is to use a flag or banner in some way on a project to celebrate the holiday.  I am looking forward to going picnicking and going to see our community fireworks show at the park!  I made a layout with the Create A Critter 2 cartridge for my pictures.  My little holiday banners in the corners are like the ones decorating the stage where the band plays for the fireworks show-so fun!  Check out the awesome projects from the rest of the design team below for some ideas and link up your creation for us to see!

Project of the Week Winner - Lobster or Crab

Maureen here to announce the winner of our Lobster or Crab die cut challenge.  We had cards using crabs or lobsters for Father's Day, for end of school, and a pun on being crabby.  My favorite was a lobster used in a scrapbook page sharing a visit to a restaurant in Ohio.  Our winner is Mandy from http://vanillacarmel.blogspot.com/.  Congratulations and hope you join us often.

Food Challenge

Hello, everyone!

Melanie from Courtney Lane Designs here! It was my turn to host a challenge. Apparently, today is national Onion Ring day, so I thought it would be fun if everyone made something using food items. I mean how often do we craft using food stuff and there are lots and lots of Cricut food images out there!

Anyway, enjoy what we have for you this week! Play along if you can!

Winner of the 'Sign or Banner' Challenge

I'm here to announce the winner of last week's challenge:  Sign or Banner

And the winner is Glenda of glendascards.blogspot.com.   Her card has so much going on - a banner, a portrait, a proclamation, and 3 baseballs representing her 3 grandsons.  She used cuts from 6 different cartridges for the outside and inside of her card.  Love your card and the thought behind the creation.   Congrats Glenda!
