FCCB Challenge #317 Something New & Part 7

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #317-Something New
Make a project using a new cartridge, embellishiment, or image. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!



And the prize is-

A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I interpreted this challenge as doing something new and in this case with something old. I took the Rudolph deer from Create a Critter and turned him into a little deer and I flipped him and gave him a girlfriend too.

This is also Part 7 of my After Christmas Crafting Series and I have a video showing how I put this fun card together.

After Christmas Crafting Series #6

Hi everyone,
I am back with another part of my After Christmas Crafting Series. There will be 10 total videos in this series! I just got back from a girl's weekend in Las Vegas. We shopped at the outlets and ate delicious food and of course gambled. A little bit sad to be back because I had such a good time. Here is the project for today:

After Christmas Crafting Series #2

Happy New Year everyone!
I have not even written in my planner all week, let alone decided on goals for the year but I will be working on that today because the first day of the year is a good time to do a little reset. The rest of the day will be spent cleaning out my daughter's room and hopefully crafting. Today, I am sharing the second part of my After Christmas Series.

After Christmas Crafting Series #1

Hi everyone,
I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday! Did anyone get anything crafty for Christmas? I buy my own crafting presents but I did get a year of cleaning from my parents so that is seriously the best present. My sister got me an air fryer and that thing has already changed my life!

I am spending my New Years Eve getting caught up on crafty projects and getting caught up on my DVR because it's full!

Today, I am sharing my new series which I am calling the After Christmas Crafting series. This series is all about using Christmas papers, stamps and products into the New Year before I finally put it all away. I hope that you enjoy the inspiration!

25 Days of Christmas - Day 25

Merry Christmas!
I made it! I posted 25 Days in a row. I was looking back at my blog and I think that this is the 7th year that I have done my 25 Days of Christmas. I hope that everyone had a wonderful day whether you celebrate or not. My children were with their father so it was a bit bittersweet. I did speak to them and spent the morning at my parents house with my siblings and their spouses and children watching them open presents so that was fun. Tomorrow the kids come home and we will go back to the parents house and they will open their presents.

I was able to finish my video for the day as I worked on my favorite 10 crafty things of the year. I have really enjoyed posting this month and I hope to continue posting. I would love for you to subscribe here to my blog or to my YouTube channel as I have made a goal of getting readership up on both. My son is totally into stats and YouTube stats so he is helping me keep track of my stats. I never pay attention to that but he is all over it which is kind of funny.

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a 25.00 giftcard to the craft store of your choice. I would love to hear your favorite crafty thing of the year.

25 Days of Christmas Day 15

Hi everyone,
Welcome to Day 15. This going to be a quick post because it is past my bedtime. Today's project is a cute little Hello Kitty snowglobe card for Lily's teacher. You will also see me struggle with my ATG gun which now I am thinking it might be that vs the tape. I have had it forever and have abused it quite a bit. I think it may not be latching to hold onto the tape. Anyway, enjoy the video and be sure to leave comments on each of my countdown post and YouTube videos for a chance to win my giveaway.
