This week over at BBTB2 our fabulously talented Jayne chose Christmas in July as our theme using any Cricut cartridge.

I bought Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge back last year and it's got some beatiful shapes on it and as I have only used it once I decided to create a card using it..

I used the frame, Christmas word tree and santa and sleigh silhouette all from Dec. 25th and welded them together in CCR and cut a separate santa and sleigh silhoiuette in black which I added to the top of the base cut I had created. I covered the base of my card with red gingham paper, added a few gems and finally I added a little charm that I made from some chain, jump rings and some little jingle bells.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the gorgeous Christmas creations from the rest of the team and I know it's Summer but get a head start on your Christmas projects by joining us in our challenge, we love seeing your creations!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week!

Good morning

This week's challenge over at BBTB2 has been chosen by our lovely Caroline who asked us to create a project with a beach theme, quite apt for all the tropical weather we are experiencing here in the UK at the moment!

I made a card using this scene from Formal Occasions Cricut cartridge, very easy to go together and I made the base into a shaped card by cutting 2 and scoring one to adhere as the back of my card. I cut a few of the layers twice to ,  make it a bit more dimensional I added the word Paradise from Life is a Beach which didn't come with a shadow cut so I cut a second in white and just offset it. Finally I just added a few shell beads to finish off.

Please go visit BBTB2 and see all the beautiful projects created by the rst of the DT and please join in! You can use any cartridge to create your fabulous beach creations!

have a wondrful week everyone
