Cricut Capers

Hello, crafters, Cynthia here. I shudder to remember what papercrafting was like before the Cricut. That ingenious little machine -- no matter which version I'm using -- helps me make with paper what I see in my head but cannot get my hands to cooperate to make a reality. It also helps me easily and quickly make A LOT of identical things -- invitations, party favors, decorations, to name a few. Close To My Heart makes crafting with the Cricut even easier because the company's exclusive cartridges contain hundreds of images each and many of them have coordinating stamps that fit on the cut-to-size paper.

The Heart 2 Heart Design Team's Cricuts were humming last week as the members prepared examples for this week's challenge: Cricut Capers.






Show us how you use your Cricut! You have until the end of October to play along with this and all of the October challenges. You will need to use some Close To My Heart products in your projects to join in our fun. Post your blog post using our linky and share our link on your blog so everyone can get in on the action. Ladies and gentlemen, start your Cricuts!

Home is....

This week at H2H challenges we are taking a look at our hometowns. Some of us still live there and some of us have moved away. This week's challenge enables to us to take a look at the areas that helped us shape who we are today. Big or small, near or far, good or bad... our home towns play a huge role in the people we become so this week we are paying homage to that part of our lives. Let us see the area you grew up in, live in, or are from. Share your favourite memories, places, events....what ever you like. Just have fun with it and let it take you where ever it takes you!

Here at H2H challenges we have design teams members from around the world, so sit back and enjoy our home towns!

We look forward to seeing where your from and what you come up with!  As always, you have until the end of the month to play along with this or any of the October challenges.  Thanks for joining us!
