"Fontastic" Project of the Week Challenge winner

Hello everyone, Suzanne here and its time for me to select the winner from last weeks "Fontastic" challenge.  There were so many wonderful projects and fonts it is always a difficult decision.  The winner I selected this week is Paula Bee of Craft with Bee.  I loved the "Movies" wall art she created using the new font Extreme Fonts and the Cricut Craft room.  The cuts and font are placed on a floating frame to add dimension.  Isn't this just the cutest project and font?  Congratulations Paula and thanks to everyone who joined us last week for the "Fontastic" Challenge.

Please email me Paula at and I will forward the BBTB2 Project of the week code.  Congrats again!

Hello, Susan here to kick off our first design challenge of 2013!  This is not only our first challenge, but our first challenge on our newly designed blog!  During our two week holiday break our web designer, Tiffany of Tiffany Kuehl Designs worked with me to create a new uniquely BBTB2 look for our blog.  I could hardly wait for the first challenge of 2013 for you to see what a truly fabulous job Tiffany did for us!   Oh, and feel free to grab our button code for your blog!!

So on to 2013's first challenge - I challenged the design team to create a frosty winter project of their choice using any SNOWFLAKE from any Cricut cartridge.   This seemed like a timely first challenge of 2013 as we usher in the short, cold days of winter (well, everyone north of the equator!).   Cold though they may be, winter days also offers us the opportunity to ski, skate, snowboard, and to go sledding.   We would love it if you would join in this weeks snowy challenge and create your own snowflake project!  The Challenge Rules are on our sidebar so be sure to take a peek.   But first, how about a bit of inspiration from the Bitten by the Bug 2 Design Team?
