Watermelon Challenge

Hello friends, welcome to this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge.  I am enjoying summer so much, loving time with family and friends.  I am also LOVING the abundance of summer fruits and vegetables!  Sweet Watermelon is one of my summer favorites and it is also the inspiration for this week's Cricut Cut Challenge.  I challenged the Design Team to use any Cricut cut watermelon on a project and they made some darling melon projects.  After viewing their amazing and inspiring projects, we invite you to create your own watermelon project and link up with us below.  Be sure to check the challenge rules on the sidebar!!   

It is with true sadness that I tell you that this is our sweet team member Valentyna's final week on the BBTB2 Design Team.  Valentyna is an AMAZING paper designer and crafter and we will miss her!!

Stars and Stripes Forever challenge winner


Happy Wednesday!  It's Michelle here to share the project of the week winner for the Stars and Stripes challenge.  With such cute patriotic 4th of July projects, it was hard to settle on just one.  However, I fell in love with Glenda's red, white, and blue independence day card which she made without a scrap of patterned paper!  Who needs patterned paper anyway with such fabulousness?  It is full of wonderful detail and so fun!  Congratulations Glenda!

Food challenge winner revealed!

Hello, everyone!

This is Melanie from Courtney Lane Designs. I completely forgot to pot the winner of my food challenge on the 22nd. Time really got away from me last week! My sincerest apologies! 

I love all of the projects the team and the viewers posted! It was a really great week! However, I had to narrow it down to one project, so I chose the strawberry project that Little Miss Suzy Q made! Your project was so darn cute!

Thanks again, everyone, who participated!! Have a great rest of your week!
