Plantin Schoolbook...Rick Rack challenge and Guest Designer

Happy Monday to all. This is Carole and I am so pleased to be the hostess this week for our design team. I have chosen Plantin Schoolbook for the cartridge, and I have used the rick rack cut for the die. I love this little serves so many different purposes on cards or scrapbooking. I love the way the designers take a cut and make it their own. All of the ideas and creations are just fantastic. We would love to have you play along. If you don't have this particular cartridge, play along by selecting a strip design from any other cartridge. There is a cute cute scallop on several cartridges. Why you can even pick a flourish. We always love it when you play along with our challenges.

This is Heather and I'm pleased to announce we have another Guest Designer this month. Her name is Lisa Swift. You can see her gallery here. Lisa is also part of the Good Grief blog.

Hi! My name is Lisa Swift and I’m excited to participate in some of this month’s challenges with the talented BBTB2 team. I started scrapping nine years ago when my daughter, Alexa, was born and I’ve been addicted ever since. The Cricut is one of the newer additions (about a year or so) to my scrapbooking collection, thanks to Heather and some of the other enabling ladies at LOL! When I’m not scrapping, I like to volunteer at my daughter’s school, go to yoga class, bake/cook, and read.
