3-D Rose Challenge

Hello everyone, Susan here to introduce this week's Cricut Challenge Cut! I also have some sad news to share - Our sweet Carole has decided to reorder her crafting priorities and will be taking a step back from Bitten by the Bug 2.

From Carole: "I am stepping away from BBTB2 for now so I can devote my time to sewing for some shelters and other worthwhile agencies. I have about 14 quilts I have finished with many more to work on. I love sewing and this new adventure will take a lot of my time. So for now.... a fond goodbye to the wonderful design team sisters and to my friends and followers. I will post cards now and then, and maybe some sewing projects." I am going to miss Carole so much; she has been a pillar of strength and inspiration.

Now on to business as usual.... I have recently become addicted to the 3D Rose cut on the Art Philosophy cartridge. I think the flowers have such potential and I thought it would be fun for the Design Team to share some ideas on how to use the flowers.

We would love for you to join us in our weekly challenge. Once you create your project using the 3D Rose from Art Philosophy (or any other 3D flower from a Cricut Cartridge) be sure to check the challenge rules on our sidebar, and then add your project into the link area at the bottom of this post. If you do not own Art Philosophy and would be interested in purchasing the cartridge, click the Close To My Heart blinkie on our sidebar. And now - onto a garden of 3D floral inspiration!!

  2. I don't know about the rest of you, but blogger won't allow me access to Caroline's or Brenda's blog. I didn't leave you out just couldn't leave a comment. Will try again later.

  3. Beautiful projects this week as usual ladies!!! I love all the 3D flowers and all the projects were so unique and awesome!!! Stephanie, I fixed my link, not sure what happen there and I couldn't get to Caroline's blog either, tried a few times and then the third time was the charm. lol Not sure if it was because Susan already fixed it or not.

  4. Lovely projects..... one and all.

  5. These are great projects and a wonderful challenge. Thanks

  6. This was a fun challenge. I need to learn the art of rolling 3D flowers. I felt like all thumbs
