Alicia-BBTB2 Owner

Hello, I took over ownership of this blog in October 2019.  I am not new to blogging or Cricut crafting but this is my first time at running a challenge blog.  I hope to grow our Cricut blogging community and challenge crafters to create some projects of which to be proud.  I have had my personal blog for several years and have owned a Cricut prior to blogging. However, it was challenges that got me to think about crafting more with Cricut and really just thinking outside my box.  I hope this blog inspires and challenges you to think outside your own box.  Please visit my social media links below:

My name is Caroline, I have a wonderful husband, a mother to three boys and grandmother to four. They are my life. Oh, not to be forgotten, my furbaby, a Boston Terrier named Sophie. I work part time as an Ob-Gyne nurse. I have been a stamper for many years before my Cricut Expression, which I got in 2009. Cricut took over my life at that point. I love paper crafting, and there is barely a day that goes by, that I have to be in my craft room.

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 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’m the one on the right)  Hi my name is Dorlene and I’m a wife of over 30 years, mother of four adult children and grandmother of two granddaughters. I love all things crafty and seem to use my Cricut in most of my projects. I especially like using it for party decorations! I was encouraged at a young age to be creative and have continued to embrace my creative side. Being creative is not only fun but good for my soul. I hope you get a chance to check out my blog and I hope my work inspires you to be creative!

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..


I have been married for 37 years, we have a married daughter and a son. I have 3 grandchildren and the subject of much of my crafts. I love to travel the world, and have been to over 20 Countries. I have a Cricut Explore and use it all the time. I have enough crafting and quilting projects to last me two lifetimes.

My Blog:


I'm Michelle, married to a very patient husband for over 20 years who allows my crafty space to overflow my corner of the basement into his. I am the mom of three boys, high school and college age, who are the joy of my life. I work as an RN in a cardiothoracic ICU in a large urban trauma hospital, taking care of patients directly after open heart surgery and heart transplants for my day job (or rather night job, as I work on night shift).  

While I love my job, it is often extremely stressful and crafting is my happy therapy. I started out as a scrapbooker when my boys were born and fell in love with the Cricut when my best friend got one.  I have upgraded to a Cricut Explore Air 2 this year and use it for nearly all my crafting.   Although I do some stamping and card making, my passion is scrapbooking all our family adventures, big and small.

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
