Cricut Ornament Cut Winner

Hi Followers,
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and received lots of crafting items.  I sent Santa many hints and my wish for a Cricut Explore came true.  Now to find the time to get instructions read and learn how to use it.  I am really excited to start creating projects like those I have seen by my design sisters and others out in internet land.

On to our winner for the Cricut Ornament challenge.  The challenge was to use a Cricut cut to make a project or to make an ornament from Cricut cuts.  I really loved the vintage classical cut ornament made by Lynn B. from  My Cards N Stuff.   Her background paper really complimented the ornament perfectly.  Congrats Lynn. 

BBTB2 will be back next year with more Cricut inspired creations for your inspiration.  Happy New Year to All!

Anything Christmas Challenge

Happy Monday everyone !!! Mayra here, from Mayras Designs hosting this weeks challenge.

I know many of you are probably super busy, and have lots to get done. Hopefully, you are able to get some crafting time in there. I chose the theme "Anything Christmas"!!! We invite to share your Cricut made projects with anything Christmas related and link them up with us. Be sure to visit my wonderful design team sisters for fantastic inspiration .

I created this banner for the mantle on our fireplace. I wasn't sure what phrase or word I was going to use. I looked to Pinterest and saw the word believe used on a card, at that moment I knew what my banner would say. I used Pretty Pennants, Winter Woodland and the beautiful Christmas cartridges to make this banner. I hope you feel inspired and are able to join us!!!

Wishing you and your families a wonderful and blessed Holiday Season and a very Merry Christmas!
