Cricut Cut as a Stencil Challenge

Hello Everyone - Maureen here to host my first weekly challenge on BBTB2.  I have had a wonderful time on my first design team as it has challenged me to use my Cricut more, and to make projects and layouts that help me become the scrapbooker that I aspire to be.  

I wanted everyone to think outside the box this week, so came up with an idea to use a Cricut cut as a stencil for a card, layout, or project.  You can add cuts and embellishments if you like as well.

We hope can come up with a fun and exciting entry.   Check the sidebar on the right side for the rules for our challenges and get to creating.  You will have until Sunday, March 2nd to link up your project.

Patriotic Themed Challenge

Today is President's Day, and we in the US owe a day off from work and school -- and lots of shopping discounts -- to our country's forefathers. So for this week's crafty challenge, let's get patriotic and create a card, a layout (can even be vacation pics or last year's 4th of July or other American holiday), or project with the Cricut. If you can snag some free digital images from, I'd love to see that too!

Some of our DT members live overseas, so feel free to celebrate any holiday dear to your nation's roots. And don't forget to use your Cricut and let us know which cartridge(s) you use. :)

Check out the great projects from BBTB2's Design Team.  Here is my two-page LO from last year's President's Day Weekend. We went to Coco Keys in Boston -- and were snowed in, and had no choice but to stay longer and have more fun!  And I did base my LO on the February Pagemaps sketch :)
