Welcome to our first challenge!!

Welcome to our first "Exploring Cricut" Challenge #1. This challenge is using the cartridge Art Philosophy from Close to My Heart. This is a fairly new cartridge, but we wanted to show you what beautiful things you can create!! We focused our designs using the Square 3 image on page 43 and at least two of the many flowers on the cartridge. You will see several flowers, but we all used the Square 3 as our focus. Join us this week in the challenge by linking your creation to the bottom and we will be giving away some paper packs from Close to My Heart to a lucky winner compliments of our Design Team member Emily! This challenge closes on Saturday, Ocotber 15 at midnight. You can do a card, layout, or papercraft which is only limited by your imagination! I will announce a winner picked by random org on Sunday. Be sure to check back daily for projects. If you click on the DT member, it will take you to her site and she will give you instructions on how she created her project.

  7. What a FUN challenge blog!! Great projects by all. Just a tad bit disappointed though that we have to use a particular cartridge as I've had my Cricut since Christmas and only have 2 cartridges. Guess I'll keep an eye out for when you are using my cartridge, lol. *Ü*
