Winner - Spring Flings and Easter Things Challenge

Thanks to all of you who joined in our challenge last week - I hope your Easter was fun and I'm sure it was a busy time, but you all managed to find some creative time.   We have a winner of the "Spring Flings and Easter Things" challenge.  It is Vicki from HeARTfulStamper.   She took a border strip from Art Philosophy and cut it to make a cross, then added gold paper behind the cross.  I thought her design was spectacular.  Congratulations Vicki.  Here is her beautiful card.

Blooming Bulb Flowers - daffodils, tulips, irises, etc...

Hello, everyone!

This is Melanie from Courtney Lane Designs and today I have a theme that is one of my favorites. Since it is spring I thought it would be appropriate to do a spring bulb theme. There are so many Cricut cuts that have tulips, daffodils, irises, and hyacinths that you are going to be spoiled for choice! 

Want to play along? Make your project using a Cricut cut and post it below! Before you get going, be sure to check out all of the beautiful projects below!

A big thanks to all of you who joined us for the St. Patrick's Day Wearin' of the Green challenge. It was incredibly hard to choose a winner this week as there were so many beautiful projects. I chose the winner because her entry was as unusual as it was beautiful. The winner is Clare with this stunner. Congratulations!

Check out her blog here to see all the work she put in to create this. Hope to see you all this week for the Spring/Easter challenge.

Spring Flings And Easter Things

It feels like Spring, and it is my second favorite season after summer.  My outdoor plants are in full bloom, everyone is out enjoying good weather, and we are planning Easter festivities.  That includes making Easter projects and cards with my Cricut Explore.   Thus, our challenge for this week is "Spring Flings and Easter Things", meaning you can create Easter or Spring projects and showcase them by linking them up to the bottom of this post.  This is Maureen, and I invite you to enjoy our design team creations and hop down the path to a beautiful Spring and Easter.

Hey there, Susan here to bring you the Project of the Week Winner of the National Margarita Day Fiesta challenge.  Usually when we only have one or two submissions on a challenge we do not select a winner.  However, Vicki at HeARTful Stamper did such a great job on this fun layout that I just had to share with you!  How cute is this and how awesome is that paper she used?  Love it!! Congratulations Vicki!
