Use your exclusive Pop Up Neighborhood cartridge for this new contest! We love the fun versatility of this fabulous cartridge and want you to create any kind of project for this challenge. Use at least 4 Cricut cuts.

For this challenge, I made 16 Fall treat bags (4 of each style). The accessory cuts are wonderful on this cart and I used the ones on the following pages: 53, 36, 60, 57, 76. Each bag will be filled with candy as shown when Halloween candy is available.

Weekly Challenge #37: Technique Challenge!

All week long the Cricut Circle Design Team has been showing you new and different techniques to use with your Cricut Cuts, now it’s your turn! Create a project of your choice (Scrapbook page, mini album, card, home decor . . . it’s up to you!) including one of the techniques we have showcased this week and 2 Cricut cuts.

For this challenge I used Jennifer's example of using beads and glitter to dress up the Cricut cuts. Beads, pearls and glitter were used on this card. Cricut cuts are from Birthday Bash and Walk In My Garden.

The Challenge: Create a project of your choice with a BBQ, Picnic, or Patio theme AND use a gingham or check pattern somewhere on your projects. Your project must include atleast 2 different Cricut Image Cuts.

For this challenge, the lanterns are from Tie the Knot and with the Gypsy, I hid the hearts. The images and sentiments are from 3 Birds on Parade and Celebrations. I made these for a BBQ/Birthday party August 4th, to put on tables around the patio.

Weekly Challenge #36: Fabric Challenge!

The challenge is to incorporate fabric into our project with 2 Cricut image cuts.

For this challenge I made a wrapper for a Hershey Candy Bar. I wanted to do this last Christmas,(after seeing a computer generated snowman) but ran out of time so this challenge jogged my memory to get started earlier. I bought several 6 pack of candy bars from Wal-Mart and flannel for the hat and scarf. Paper is wrapped around the candy bar and then I added the Doodlecharms Snowman and the snowflake from A Child's Year.
