It's Challenge time at Exploring Cricut!

Happy Monday to you all! How was your weekend? How are you doing with those resolutions??? One thing I am trying to spend more time doing is crafting! It's a great way to relax a bit and unwind. And...I am always so happy to have created something for someone else.

Are you ready for a new Challenge at Exploring Cricut?
Challenge: "Winter Wonderland" Create a card, layout, or paper craft celebrating winter and snow.  Any colors or cartridge. This is going to be such a terrific challenge, so many possibilities! Make sure to head on over to and check out the other amazing projects our Design Team has created.

I am sharing some bulletin board decor I made for our little homeschool. It was time to change to  a "winter" theme and this little banner was a perfect addition.

I used the Fall and Winter Tablescapes cartridge. I have used this quite a bit over the past few months. The cuts are simple, not too fussy and easy-to-assemble. A must for a quick and easy project. The font is from Cuttin Up and for the background banner pieces I used my new Elegant Edges Cartridge.

Fall and Winter Tablescapes:
Rosettes pg. 18 cut at 2.0" (cut four for each rosette)
Snowflake pg. 20 cut at 2.25"

Cuttin Up!
Font cut at 2.25" including shadow feature

Elegant Edges:
Snowflake pg. 47 cut at 5.0"

Thank you for stopping by today. Please be sure to visit Exploring Cricut to link up your challenge project!
