jacquie44 said...

So the Cricut is it the baby bug or the expressions?

Anywho I am going to give it a try---I am a begginner, but why not try anyways you never know right?

LOL

Regina Easter said...

the cricut is both the baby bug and the expression......you can use either of the two...

britt said...

Ohhh yay! I have been wanting a cuttlebug for sooo long! I will enter this contest! Thanks Regina!

Sheila said...

I would love either prize!!! Let me put my thinking cap on!!!! thanks for the fun!

Sara said...

oohhh...I can't wait. I have been away for the past couple months and have so many ideas I have been wanting to do. This is perfect for a project I have been planning. I would love the cuttlebug and I have the software but I hold a fundraiser in February called crop out diabetes and it would be an awesome item to give away at the crop. Good luck everyone!!!

Tina said...

I did Halloween Goody Bags for Jacob's Class.

http://dianagibbs.typepad.com/stampin_with_di/2008/06/box-in-a-bag-tutorial.html?cid=119646038
Is the creative genius behind the style of the bag.

The Cricut cut on this project is the circle tag. It is from accent essentials. I used the drippy goo punch for the border around the bottom of the bags and Stuido G stamps for the tags.

Enjoy!

First off, thanks Regina and Provo Craft for the contest! Regina, I am a long time admirer of all your work. This is my first ever entry. Thanks so much for the inspiration to get started early this year.

It looks like I am finally going to have to get busy and enter a contest! Although it's rather intimidating seeing all these great entries. I really need a Cuttlebug!

EMD1117 said...

I was experimenting with paper and folding techniques and came up with this design using the SYI and Celebrations cartridges.

Tam (frugal scrapper) said...

Ok, here it is! I had this idea kicking around since around the time this contest was announced. Being the procrastinator I am, I finally got it done. LOL I wanted to show a few versions of the same idea. I used mulberry for one, and vellum for the other 2. Hope you like it! http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn251/thecutstudio/candleshades.jpg

Tam (frugal scrapper) said...

Sorry, I don't think my whole URL posted and I can't see there's a way to edit it!

scuba4two said...

Hello! This is my first time entering any contest. For my first entry I made a halloween wall hanging. Good luck to everyone!

http://i419.photobucket.com/albums/pp277/scuba4two/DSCN0828.jpg

scuba4two said...

Now, here is my 2nd entry. It is a halloween tree centerpiece. I saw a kit to make a similar halloween tree from K and Company but thought I could make one better and cuter (or at least in my opinion) with my cricut. So, here it is. I hope it is okay that I got my idea from somewhere else and made it my own project.
