Tick Tock

Happy New Year Cricuteers!! Connie Can Crop here with my very first challenge for 2020 and as part of the BBTB2 Design Team. 

I love New Year's! It makes me reflect on all the amazing things that happened to me the previous year and keeps me hopeful for better things in the year to come. I always watch the ball drop in Times Square (on TV of course) and Rudolph's Shiny New Year is one tradition I always watch on New Years Day. So my challenge only seemed appropriate to be all about time! 

For this challenge Tick Tock, Use a clock or part of a clock on your Cricut project. Cricut has so many to choose from. Be sure to be on time and get your entries in before January 20th.

Our Design Team has some Timeless Inspiration for you all. Be sure to check our projects out!

Use a Number

Happy Holidays!  Welcome to our last challenge of 2019, Alicia here with your challenge for the next two weeks: USE A NUMBER.  This one should be easy considering Christmas projects often contain a "25" and the next big holiday will welcome 2020! Can you believe it?  It is also a big birthday for me this time week, I don't often put numbers on my birthday or anniversary cards but some of the milestone numbers deserve it.  You could also use numbers on your project for sports scores, anniversaries, and any NUMBER of reasons.  So turn on your Cricut and get cutting! 

Alicia-Close to My Heart Artbooking and Locker Talk

Michelle-Miss Kate Cuttables

Dorlene - Design Space

Maureen - Christmas Cookies and Cocoa banner, Annlie Extra Bold Font, Circle shape

Thank you so much for playing along with you Cricut, this challenge is open until January 6, 2020

Welcome our New Design Team Members

I would like to welcome our latest members of our design team for 2020! Joining our remaining ladies Caroline, Dorlene, Maureen, Michelle, and Alicia (me).  We are saying sweet good bye to Janet, we will miss her fantastic projects. And now for the latest additions to our team to inspire you for 2020!


Hello! I'm Connie (Can Crop) and I am thrilled to be joining this awesome team! I come to you from Sunny Southern California, USA. I have been married for almost 23 years and have 2 grown boys and 3 cats!! I am a crazy coffee addict, cat lover, and Cricut artist! I started with Cricut way back when with my baby bug and have evolved right along with them. I am privileged enough to be one of their beta testers and love their products! My current baby is the Explore Air 2. I truly hope I can inspire you to get crafty with Cricut! Be sure to stop by my blog Connie Can Crop and check out all I have been up to!


Hi! My name is Stacey and I love all things paper! My hubby actually got me into papercrafting by buying me a scrapbook kit for Christmas one year and I’ve never looked back lol! I started out by scrapbooking and then I transitioned into cardmaking during one of his deployments. I am a longtime user of the Cricut, I actually got my first Cricut back when they only had one size machine lol!  I love the endless possibilities and look forward to being on the BBTB2 Design Team and working alongside these crafty ladies!  I am learning how to crochet and knit and loving that as well. You can find me at my blog and on Instagram @staceyscreativecorner 


My name is Kim and I live in Southern California. By day I am a 6th grade Math and Science teacher.  By night I am a crafting machine. I am very much a paper addict. I can't go into a craft or scrapbooking store without buying paper. I love anything that has to do with paper. Paper comes in all colors, patterns, sizes and textures. Paper can be cut, folded, crimped, embossed, glued, and stitched, just to name a few. I love to see what new things I can do with paper.  My next favorite thing to play with is my Cricut.  I love to learn new things on my Cricut and explore what I can do with it.  You can find me at and on Social Media platforms as PinkZebraPC..


Hi I am Denise from Ohio and have been married for almost 30 years.My husband and I have two grown children. A son married with a wonderful wife and daughter and a great daughter who is engaged.  I have been crafty all my life, inspired by my crafty Nana.  I got into paper crafting in 2010 when my son entered the Air Force academy and I wanted to scrap his experience for those four years.  My mother had the original Cricut with two cartridges that she had never used, so she gave it to me. I purchased a cartridge called Stand and Salute and so started my love of paper crafts and especially using the Cricut. I soon upgraded to the Expression and later the Explore which is what I currently use.  I am an accountant by trade, so I enjoy being able to express my creative side especially with cards. I look forward to sharing creations here and on my blog

I can't wait to see what great projects we all will create in 2020!  In the meantime we still have our Pink & Gold Glam Holiday challenge until December 23.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Pink and Gold Holiday Glam!

Hello! It's Janet wishing you a crafty and fun day! We've moved into December so you know what that means - Christmas is almost here! Yay! I like Christmas traditions and I always have a red and green tree at our house but I also have what I call, "my artsy-fartsy" tree. This is the tree where I get to try out new colors, trends and anything that tickles my fancy. This year, it's pink and gold. Now, I'm not a pink girl usually but something about pink and gold with winter snow, lace, feathers and so forth just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

My two week challenge to you is to make anything holiday featuring pink and gold. Christmas, New Year, Hanukkah - you name the holiday, pink and gold will work. The Design Team has made some truly beautiful creations. We can't wait to see your entries. Get them in by the deadline on December 23rd. Best of luck!
