FCCB #212: Class of 2014

Good morning everyone!

We hope you are enjoying our "Class of 2014" challenge this week, and getting those graduation projects put together!  Here are a few more projects for your inspiration!

First off I found these darling, darling preschool/Kindergarten graduation cards over at Sweet as a Gumdrop.  She used the Create a Critter cartridge on these.

Next I found this great tri shutter card, perfect for an older graduate, over at Cricut DIVA Blog.  The Teen Scene Paperdoll cart was used to create this.


Finally I found this graduation confetti that would be great for a party favor.  I found this over on 100 Direction.  The Cricut Design Space 2014 Grad Confetti Make It Now can be used to create this.

Spotlight Sunday

Hello!  This Spotlight Sunday marks the end of Paula's week as Guest Designer here at FCCB.  The DT would like to thank Paula again for being a guest designer!!  Before we say our final goodbye, Paula has a few parting words and one more project to share.

I just want to thank FCCB for inviting me to be a guest designer this week.  I really enjoy participating in the challenges and it was so much fun to be able provide some inspiration for last week's challenge.  

I have one final project for you today and I used the Art Nouveau cartridge to create it.  Hmm, I seem to have a new favorite since I used it for both my projects as guest designer.  Well, I hope you enjoy.

Thanks again to everyone at FCCB for the opportunity and be sure to visit my blog, Craft with Bee.

FCCB #211:May Flowers

Good morning everyone!

We hope you are enjoying this week's "May Flowers" challenge.  Here are a few more projects for your inspiration!

First we've got this gorgeous wreath made by Lisa at Lisa's Creative Corner. She used the Art Philosophy cartridge to create this.

Next I found this cute card over at Everyday Cricut.  This was made by either Joy or Melanie using the Cricut Essentials cartridge.


Lastly I found this fun pop up card made by June at Simply Elegant Paper Crafts. She used the Bloom cartridge on this one.

Here are a few go to cartridges when looking for flowers to add to projects!

FCCB #211: May Flowers

Good morning everyone!

We hope you are enjoying our May Flowers challenge this week.  Here's a few more project ideas for your inspiration!

First up we have this super cute flower pot made by Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  She used the Sophie cartridge to create this lovely little bouquet.

Next I found this elegant corsage made by Ginger Williams.  I think this is absolutely stunning.  She used the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge to create this.

Finally we have this wonderful centerpiece created by Amy at The Happy Scraps.  Amy mentioned using her Cricut Explore, but she didn't mention which specific cartridge she used, however I think she used the Flower Shoppe cartridge to make this.

Here are a few more cartridges that have flowers for your inspiration!
