Use this month’s magazine as a stepping off point for you to create something your way. Use one of our Designers projects to help you create something similar and yet has your own style. You might see a flower, paper, design element or maybe just the concept to help you design something of your own. CONTEST RULES: Use at least 3 Cricut Cuts and an idea from the magazine

I liked how Michele Kovak on p.23 used flowers on her picture. I used tulips and iris on pictures of my gransons during their Easter Egg Hunt. Cartridges used: Picturesque for the tulips, Walk in My Garden for the Iris, 3 Birds for the Rabbit, and Easter 2010 for the title-Happy Easter and Cross.

Weekly Challenge #33: Sweet Summertime Challenge!

The Challenge: What makes summertime “sweet” to you? Ice cream treats? Watermelon? Popsicles? Whatever it is we want you to include the shape of your favorite summertime sweet treat on your project.Include 2 Cricut image cuts.

Mom's birthday is July 6 and we always have a family dinner at her favorite restaurant. Since it is her bd, she is given a sundae with a candle. She shares with everyone at the table and the restaurant supplies enough spoons for all us to have a taste of that ice cream treat on a hot July day. Cricut cuts are from Sweet Treets: sundae and the present. Before she blows out the candle, we tell her to "Make a Wish" which is the stamp I used.

For this challenge I made a garden mini album using 3 buttons on the hat (2nd picture), ruffle and a flower on the cover. This is for a friend that loves to garden and she can take pictures and record her flowers. Aso the clips divide the album into the 4 seasons.

My Pink Stamper Challenge #4 Mother's Day Card

Weekly Challenge #31: Gift Card Challenge!

The Challenge: With Teacher Appreciation, Graduation, Baby Showers, Weddings, and other special events that are sure to be gracing your calendar over the next few months, we thought it might be fun to have a challenge to see your creative Gift Card and Money Holder ideas. Using your Cricut create a gift card or money holder with 2 image cuts.

For this challenge I created a gift card in card form. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the envelope @3.5", the hat from Locker Talk and You Did It from Beyond Birthdays. The school colors are for a specific graduate. To keep the envelope closed, I took a glue dot and rolled it in my fingers to get some of the sticky out and it works great.
