Mini Album/ Create a Critter, MM, TBBM, Gypsy Font, Cuttlebug

Back in April I was fortunate enough to win some blog candy from the ladies at BBTB2. One of the prizes was this yummy birthday paper stack that I was able to use on a gift for a little friend. I loved the papers and incorporated them to this mini book with lots of dies, rub-ons, bling, flowers and some tucked-in surprises. TFL!  And thanks to the crew at BBTB2!!

Cricut Explore Air 2 Dreamcatcher Tutorial

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
Please subscribe and like, and let me know your thoughts, or what you have made!!
