Cricut Challenge for You!!!

While Karlee and I are finishing up My Pink Loft for the Live Broadcast at 7:00 PM CST we thought that we would issue a challenge to get everyone started!

Here is your first challenge......

Make a project (card, scrapbook page, 3D item, etc.) for a friend. Start the new year off by making something special for someone that you love or like. :)

When you are finished with the challenge post it somewhere, your blog or a Message Board, then share the link in the comments of this post! Karlee and I will participate in this challenge soon.

Good luck!!

  46. I just finished a HUGE project for my mom who is visiting me. I scanned all her old recipe cards into my computer, edited them, printed them and then sraped them into a cookbook for her. We decided to put them in a 3-ring binder so she could add or move around recipes. It turned out so cute and was such a labor of love. I haven't taken any pictures of it yet, hopefully I can slow down soon and do that. I LOVE making things for other people. Thank you for the great idea! Have a very blessed new year!

  55. This is for my friend who was born on New Year's Day (a few years back). I used Wild Card cartridge and the bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder. I added stickles to make it look even more like Champagne.

  59. I did it, I did it. I did the challenge. I used the Cuttlebug because these cards were too small. The stamp set was the Ronlad McDonald stamp set from Stampin Up (2009)

  65. Here is another card I just finished for a special "adopted" grandmother, Bootsie. Bootsie always sends cards for birthdays, anniversaries and for Christmas to hundreds of people. I've always received cards from her, but have only sent Christmas cards to her. This card is a "Just Because" card thanking her for who she is!
