This week we want you to create a quick tag or card using the sketch provided below with a least 2 Cricut cuts. You can make it holiday themed if you would like, but it doesn’t need to be.
I used Winter Frolic to create this Tag. Cricut cuts: tag feature, mouse and the phrase: For You.

Create a Holiday Gift Item. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify: Use at least 2 Cricut Cuts
•Use a tag made with a cartridge (there are so many great tags on so many cartridges!)
•Use the color red somewhere.
•Use a phrase from one of the cartridges.
I used a glitter water globe w/photo frame. Instead of a picture I used two Cricut cuts: Santa from Christmas and a snowman from Gingerbread. The recipient can use the Santa for December and then the Snowman for January. She will also have the option of adding her own pictures. The tag and phrase are from Winter Frolic. I decorated a paint can for the wrapping instead of the original box. Ribbon was used for the base, top of paint can and draped over the globe. I used liquid pearls to give the santa's coat dimension and added stickles to both cuts.

This week we want you to create a project that is about, includes, or holds a holiday recipe. This could be a scrapbook page, a mini album, a recipe box or book, a Gift for a Neighbor . . . the sky’s the limit. But we want to see you pay tribute to a holiday recipe in some way.
Project must be newly created for this challenge and must include atleast 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge to qualify.
For this challenge I created a accordian fold recipe box. Cricut cuts: Recipes-From My Kitchen, Sweet Holiday-Winter Frolic, Snowflake-Graphically speaking, images on card-Gingerbread. I love sugar cookies made with powdered sugar and of course lots of frosting and decorated.

This Weekly Challenge has a “Black Friday” twist! Here’s what we want you to do this week . . . Include the color black in your project AND recycle or repurpose something. Also, 2 Cricut cuts are required.
I bought the Noel decoration at Wal-Mart after Christmas on a great sale. It has sat upstairs since then. For this challenge I unearthed it and added cuts from A Child's Year, Winter Frolic and When It's cold outside. The black shadows were perfect against the gold. If it hadn't been for this challenge, it would still be in the bag!

I used Dear Lizzy + American Crafts from Christmas Comfort and Cheer. Cricut cuts: Holly, poinsettia, leaves from Winter Woodland, Penwork from French Manor and bag from TBBM. Embellished with red and gold gems, glitter pen and ribbon for handle. This will make a great gift card holder for my niece.
