I am happy to announce that we have our first GUEST DESIGNER:

Enfys Cashmore

I am so glad Enfys decided to be our first Guest Designer for the month of September...I have seen some of her work and it is amazing I look forward to seeing more of her awesome is a little bit about Enfys:

I am from the UK, born and spent my childhood in Wales (which explains my name, which is pronounced Envys). I am a retired RN, married to Mike and between us we have 5 children. I am now a very doting grandma to Kiki age 3, and Max age 15 weeks, and step grandma to Lily, Charlie, and Bertie. I have been cardmaking for three years, and last year all the photos of my gorgeous Kiki inspired me to start scrapbooking. We live in the West Midlands in the UK, and are lucky enough to have a house in Hudson, Florida, and we divide our year into three month chunks, so are enjoying the best of both worlds. I am addicted to the cricut MB, and having a 'bug' has opened new horizons for me. This is a first for me - the FIRST challenge I have ever done! Thanks for asking me to do it.

You are very welcome Enfys.


For this weeks challenge the designers used the MINI MONOGRAMS cartridge.....The girls were to use the word SMILE (page 122) and create a card with the cut and boy did they do an awesome job...This cartridge also has a fabulous scallop feature on it; you really need to check this cartridge out. If you have this cartridge, we would love to see your take on this cut.....just link your creation under this thread...........Also we have a new CONTEST going on right Contest to view details.
