Winner of the Graduation challenge

Hi friends, it's Michelle here sharing the winner of the Graduation challenge.  I loved all of the great grad cards everyone shared, but selected the card Nancy E. from Pink Panoply made, using a Lori Whitlock design.  I thought it was a fresh take making an awesome graduation card without using a traditional cap image!  Here it is below and congratulations Nancy!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Make it Military

Hi, Denise here to host our challenge this Memorial Day.  Today we remember those who sacrificed their lives and also think of our current service men and women.  I have a layout that I did for my son and his graduation from the Air Force Academy in 2014.  Click on my name below and visit my blog for more details on the cuts I used for this layout.  We invite you to link your own creation using your Cricut and honoring our military below.  Get some great inspiration from our designers and be sure to visit their blogs too.

Project of the Week Winner - Flowers

Hi there, Dorlene here and I hosted the past challenge of FLOWERS.  Wow, everyone made the most amazing projects using the flower theme. It was a hard decision, but the winner of this challenge is Paper Talk with Samra.  WOW! She made the most beautiful card using the Cricut for the banner across the card and also the flowers.

Congratulations Samra! This is so beautiful. I hope you continue to link your Cricut made projects to our future challenges.  Be sure to grab the Challenge Winner banner to showcase on your blog!

There's still time to join our current challenge which is GRADUATION. Even with the Shelter In Place restrictions, we are still celebrating and honoring graduates!

Graduation (of any sort)

Hi everyone, this is Michelle, hosting the current BBTB2 challenge.   Our challenge for the next two weeks is a graduation theme.  While graduation ceremonies and celebrations everywhere have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, it still feels important to commemorate this important event for the graduates in our lives.  Since we can't celebrate with our graduates in person, sending a card or gift is one way to highlight this moment in their lives.  The design team and I have shared graduation cards below, although any project with a graduation theme is acceptable (it does not have to be a card).  The challenge  requirements are it must be a new project using the cricut with a graduation theme and our challenge runs for the next two weeks.

Project of the Week Winner - Let's Get Outdoors Theme

Little did we know that when the challenge theme of "Let's Get Outdoors" was selected, that we would all be in quarantine.  However, walking the dog, making springtime cards, and scrapping past outdoor activities were all submitted for our challenge.  I hope you all have been able to fill your spare quarantine time with additional crafting.  On to the winner, Just Jill, who created an outdoor fun-filled scrapbook page called "Adventure Starts Here", using a Miss Kate's Cuttables Cricut image.  Congratulations Jill, your artwork is making me itch for some outdoor adventures. -Maureen

Remember, you have until Sunday night to join the current challenge, "Flowers" by linking up your card or project at the bottom of our challenge announcement.
