Today is our very first post for our very first challenge!
Each Friday we will post a challenge with a certain Cricut Cartridge and cut (including page number so you can find the cut in your manual). Your challenge is to show us how you can flaunt that cut! Of course if you don't have that cart, you can use a similar cut from another cartridge.
Our design team will be showing you how they flaunted that cut in their projects to inspire you. Sounds like fun, huh?
But wait.... there's more! (I sound like an infomercial LOL)
Since today is our first challenge, we are also making it a BLOG HOP! Yeah! More details on that right after I show you how I FLAUNTED this week's cut choice.
This week your challenge is to use the Cricut cartridge WINTER FROLIC and the snowman cut on page 29. Show us how you can flaunt this cut! Here's what I came up with:
Card base is Kraft cardstock
Background paper from DCWV The Christmas Combo 180 Stack cut @ 5 1/4" x 4"
"Happy Holidays" cut from same DCWV Christmas stack from a page of various sentiments.
Button and jute from Joann's.
Solid colored papers from Recollections
WINTER FROLIC snowman page 29 cut @ 3"
Now... onto the BLOG HOP!

For my BLOG HOP project, I made a MINI ALBUM using cuts from WINTER FROLIC.
Ornaments on pages 64 and 65 cut @ 3"
Tag on page 77 cut @ 3"
The inside of the album is made with creative folding and cutting 1 piece of 12" x 12" pattern cardstock. Be sure to use cardstock with a pattern that can be "right side up" any way you turn it.
The covers are made with chipboard cut @ 3 1/4" and covered with pattern paper.
Here is a video of how to cut and fold the paper for the inside pages.
