Snow Challenge

It's mid-January -- the perfect time of year for a snow challenge. So using your cricut, make a project that fits our snow theme. Remember you can use cricut images or SVGs -- just identify which you are using and let us know the Cricut machine settings that work for your project. Have snow much fun! 

Here's what the DT girls have made:

Laura - Winter Frolic and When it's Cold Outside


Maureen - Zooballoo, Very Merry Tags, Family Album, Santa's Village

Alicia - Holly and Ivy


Michelle-Winter Frolic, Winter Wonderland, Artbooking

Happy New Year -- and Announcement!

Happy New Year to our blog followers -- just want to say how much you mean to us and love the projects that you share with us! You inspire us -- as much as we hope we do for you. We, as a design team, have decided to make an announcement that we find thrilling and hope that you do to:

We are expanding our challenges to include ALL SVGs, free and purchased, as long as you use your favorite bug machine. Of course, we can't monitor who actually uses a Cricut machine, but we hope that in good-faith, you will share what you do make with the Cricut with us. We'd like to ask you, when submitting your projects to our challenges, that you mention which Cricut machine that you are using and include your Cricut machine settings and the type of material that you used. This will also help others who read your blog and are inspired by your creation to try it out. There are some custom settings (and not so automatic) that help us in our projects. 

So we hope that you will continue to join us -- for inspiration, challenges, and just our mutual love for the machine that helps us expand our creativity. We are still Bitten by the Bug2 -- and love our amazing diecut machines from the Cricut Mini to the Cricut Maker. Here's to a New Year and more creativity!

And to kick-off the New Year and using SVGs, here's a throw-back New Years Eve card that I made with a free SVG.
