Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Challenge Winner

Jeri here popping in with a quick post to announce the winner of the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Challenge.  I simply adored the amazing and creative box that Jayne of JayneDesigns entered in the challenge.  Please click on her name to go to her blog and see her adorable reindeer box and another cake box design.  I just know that you'll want to "borrow" her fantastic idea for the cake box on the TBBM cartridge.  Here is the picture of her adorable reindeer box.  Tell me that's not the cutest reindeer you've ever seen!!!  Pure genius if you ask me.

Jayne if you'll email me at thomasjeri55atyahoodotcom, I'll see that you get your Design of the Week badge.  Thanks so much for playing along with our challenge.

Walk in My Garden... wheelbarrow challenge

Happy Monday everyone! It's Donna Mundinger here, bringing our final challenge for September (do you believe it?) and our end of the month BLOG HOP! I've chosen an "oldie but goodie" cart again this week. Walk In My Garden was one of the first cartridges I bought when I received my Expression back in 2008 and I still love it to bits. I've chosen the wheelbarrow cut and can't wait to see what you fill it with. Of course, as always, if you don't have the cartridge you may substitute a wheelbarrow from another one, as long as you create something "new" for us and link it back to BBTB2. If you can't find a wheelbarrow, how about a wagon? The DT has provided gorgeous inspiration and we're anxious to see what you create. And please join us for our monthly Blog Hop. You just may find some yummy candy. You know the drill. Start hoppin'!

TBBM - 3d box challenge

Happy Monday, Everyone! We're so happy to see you back for a new challenge. Jeri here, and it's my turn to pick the week's challenge. I love to make 3-D containers for treats and gifts so I chose an oldie but goodie cartridge...Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. If you don't have this cartridge you can choose any other Cricut cartridge that has a 3-D container on it. Please remember, to take part in the challenge you must make a new, never before published project. We love visiting your blogs to see your creations.

We also appreciate all our followers that leave comments on our blogs.

The Design Team has some wonderful projects to get your mojo cranked up.

Have Fun!

Rock Princess...Dripping Heart challenge

Good morning and Happy Labor Day! Now is the time when you put away your white shoes. Does that rule still apply? When I was a little kid, we could only wear our white sandals/shoes from Easter to Labor Day.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. It's me, Heather, and it's my turn again to host.

This time, I asked the designers to use the Dripping, Flying Heart from the Rock Princess cart. I hope you LOVE what they have done. I always get a sneak peek and I have to tell you that I really like what I see.

Please use the linky below to direct us to your beautiful projects. Now, if you don't have Rock Princess, please make something with a heart or wings or something with drips. ;)

As always, we look forward to seeing your creations. We LOVE it! We're testing a new linky this week. I can't wait to see what you make.

I will have the winner of the contest we held last week posted by tomorrow. Make sure you keep coming back because we have a HUGE, FABULOUS, and TOTALLY AWESOME sponsor coming up next week.

Make it a great day!
