On The Farm

Hello Friends! this is Krista Norman and today I am your host.  I decided to do a Farm theme, I would love to live on a big Farm with a huge garden and a wrap around porch.  I am allergic to a lot of different animals, but I would love to raise chickens and my daughter would love a horse:) (sigh)...I really admire people that grow their own vegetables and fruit.  Please join us in creating a project featuring any farm animal from any cart for a chance to win Project of the week...

BBTB2 "Window to my World" Winner

Hi everyone, Brenda here and it is time for me to announce the BBTB2 winner of the "Window to my World" challenge.  A big thank you to all of you who participated in this window challenge.  It was so fun to see everyone's take on this challenge.  I loved them all so much so that made it very hard for me to pick a winner.  But I had too and just one at that.  Let me tell you this was really hard for me and I didn't want to do it. lol  But I had to and the one I choose was this project by Linda Y of Threadbear!!!!

Her card is a cross between a card, diorama and a luminaira!  It just blew my mind and I thought was so clever of her to put all this in a card.  I love how it looks when the flameless candle lits it up!  It is so adorable and just puts a smile on my face when I look at it!!  Congrats Linda!!!!  Please email me at so I can send you the Project of the Week blinkie!

Thank you to everyone who participated, your projects were awesome!  Don't forget you still have a few more days to enter the BBTB2 Fashion challenge theme and the newest challenge them is "Christmas in July".  Happy Crafin' Everyone!

Christmas In July

Hello Everyone and welcome to BBTB2, this is Jayne here to host this week's challenge. 
I chose a  theme rather than a specific cut.
The challenge theme is 'Christmas in July'.
It's a great way to get a head start on Christmas. We would love to see your Cricut made
cards, layouts or 3D projects.
There's lots of great inspiration from the Design Team, do check
out their blogs for more details. 
And please join us but be sure to follow the rules.
We can't wait to see what you create.

Don't forget you still have a week to enter our fashion challenge too.

BBTB2 "Here Come the Sun" Winner

Hello everyone from Suzanne.  It's time for me  to announce the BBTB2 winner of the "Here Come the Sun Challenge!" First I want to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the sun challenge.  There were so many cute projects and I loved them all.  So fun to see all the amazing suns you found on Cricut carts and used for your creations.  It was really hard for me to select just one winner but I just guess I have to do it.  
So I finally decided  my favorite project  was the adorable Summer layout that Cricut Crazy Scrapper  created.  I love the Pack Your Bags cuts. The cute little kids, the sunny colors and the bright banner.  This layout just gave me a big smile.

Congratulations Cricut Crazy Scrapper!   Please email me at so I can send you the Project of the Week blinkie. Thanks again to everyone who participated! Don't forget you have a few more days to enter the BBTB2 "Window to my World Challenge" and  also we have this weeks challenge which is   "Fashion themed". Happy Craftin!

Patriotic Challenge Project of the Week

Hello everyone.  Susan from Busy with the Cricky here to share the Project of the Week winner from the Patriotic Challenge.  There were so many wonderful patriotic projects - cards, layouts, gift packages, and party supplies that I truly struggled to select just one.  But like the movie Highlander says, "in the end there can be only one"...  and that one is: Diane at Happy Scrapper Diane Blogspot

Diane's firecracker layout featuring her youngest granddaught, Peyton, was a perfect example of Patriotic scrapping. I believe I can actually hear those fireworks going BOOM! when I look at this!!  Wonderful layout, Diane.  Thank you all for participating the Patriotic challenge.
