Happy Birthday Exploring Cricut!

Hello and welcome to Exploring Cricut and More’s 4th Birthday celebration. Today starts a week of fabulous projects with several of my crafty friends joining me. We have a super challenge and lots of prizes to give away to our friends. I posted a couple yesterday and will add more for every 10 new projects submitted. Here are the 2 prizes that I showed in yesterdays post and after 10 entries, I will add another. You can’t win if you do not enter. Challenge starts today and runs through Saturday, October 26 10 pm eastern time. You may enter two projects and they must be current. You are to enter a card, layout, vinyl, or paper craft of something for a Birthday using any die cut machine. You must include what machine you used and if you used svgs, cartridges, or dies, please include that on your blog. Only residents in the US can win because of the shipping, but if someone enters from outside the US and wins, I will give a gift certificate to a company of my choice. Now everyone wins this way!!!! Start your crafting and please let your friends know. Now for the first two projects for Monday!!!!
Win these prizes by entering our challenge! More than 10 entries, I add another prize!!!!!!
Exploring Cricut & More is turning 4 this week!  Hello,  Michelle here from   Here is a Twisted Easel card I made for the occasion. I also needed a card for my sisters birthday in December, so I made this to celebrate her love of motorcycles. She has a Harley Road King, so this bike isn't a Harley, but she'll like it anyway! The image came from Rock Princess, cut at 4 3/4". All of the bike is cut using scraps. The hair is almost identical to my sisters real hair color-it's gorgeous! The road is a Paper Trey ink stamp embossed with white embossing powder, and the bottom sentiment (Live life at full throttle) is from Unity Stamp Co. Thanks for visiting me today, and make sure you enter a project-what great prizes!
Diane here today too sharing a couple different options for your gifts.  The first is a box I created using my Cricut Explore and svg files from SVG Cuts Mother's Garden.  I also used the cartridge Stamping for the Happy Birthday.  This is a easy box and the paper I used is from DCWV Celebrations stack.

 For this bag, I just used one from the Dollar Tree and the top border is from Mother's Day 2010, the pennents on the side of the bag in different sizes is from Creative Cards, Happy Birthday is from WildCard 2 and the balloons and confetti was in my subscription under My Image Set.  Now we have two different ways to present a gift to someone.  Join our challenge so we can see what you come up with for our celebration and tomorrow we will  have 2 more great projects to share!!!!
