Independence Day Challenge

Hi everyone, it's Michelle here hosting our challenge this week.  Do you have any fun plans for the three day weekend this year with the 4th of July?  The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and my family always celebrates with fireworks and BBQ, appreciating that we have the opportunity to be free!  So for our challenge this week, share a 4th of July themed project (if you don't live in the US, you can substitute a holiday from your country).  It needs to be a new project and use a Cricut cut to meet our challenge rules.  The design team have some fabulous inspiration below to spark your creativity!

Summer Fun Cricut Challenge

Hello, everyone!

This is Melanie Brown and this is my week to chose a challenge. Since we are now in the heat of the summer I thought a summer themed challenge would be a great idea! The challenge is to make a project using your Cricut that has a summer fun theme.

Below is a project I made using my Cricut Explore and an SVG I bought from Miss Kate's cuttables.

Father's Day POW

Hello friends.  Susan here to bring you the Project of the Week winner from our Father's Day challenge last week.  There were so many wonderful father's day cards and projects that I truly had such a difficult time selecting a winner.  But my eye just kept going back to Amy's Father's Day fishing exploding box.  This is just so outstanding with such attention to detail that it is truly a winner!!!  Congratulations to Amy at "all things beautiful" for her outstanding work!!

Project of the Week for Alter a Cricut Cut

So many great entries for the past challenge! I love what you all did to make your cricut cuts look distinctively yours -- fantastic. It was a tough choice to choose one project, but I did fall in-love-at-first-sight with this card from Amy L, a.k.a. the redheaded crafter. Congratulations and grab your button. Thank you everyone who participated!

Father's Day Challenge

Hello friends, Susan here to bring you this week's challenge - appropriately - Father's Day
We invite you to share your Father's Day CRICUT made projects with us this week - Cards,
Layouts, Gift Packaging, or Festive Decorations - we want to see them all, as long as they are 
made using the Cricut machine.

The Design Team has some wonderful ideas to help get you started.  My project this week 
is a Father's Day card for my husband.   Since he is getting the "Dad" cards from our children, 
I thought "My Guy" was much more fitting a spousal Father's Day card!  Scroll on and enjoy 
the wonderful projects our Design Team has created.
