If you use your Sizzix, Big Shot, Grand Calibur, and Cuttlebug then please join in the fun!!! If you are a Cricut and Cricut Product person, then you will want to join our weekly, Wonderful Wednesday Cricut challenge.

Each designer will take turns hosting a challenge by selecting a theme and challenge.
Today’s theme was selected by Designer Evelyn

    1. Hello, I'm going to try to play along in more of the challenges here but I want to make sure I understand this one correctly...we MUST use one of the free cutting files offered for this challenge, along with "hand cut" dies?
      Thanks for the clarification!!

    2. Thanks for the free files. Can't wait to try these out!

    3. Thanks for the free files.

    4. Love the files, Melinda, and wanted to thank you for all the December free files too. You outdid yourself. Your files are always wonderful and so darn cute.
      Thanks for sharing them with us.

    5. Thank you so much for the wonderful inspiration from the DT and today's freebies. New grandson arriving in the next week, so love seeing the baby ideas!

    6. Thank you ladies for all your wonderfully kind comments. To answer Maria's question....You need to use one of the free files, but you DO NOT have to use a "hand Die Cut" machine. You can use whatever you have. For instance: you can use the FREE cutting file with your Pazzles Inspiration or Silhouette or other machines. Basically, this is a challenge for something OTHER than just Cricut like our Wednesday challenges. Hope that clears it up and can't wait to see what you do!!!! Thank you SO MUCH...Melin

    7. Thsnks for the free files. I just found out that a friend is expecting. Can't wait to use these!

    8. Love the sayiing, it is perfect, now off to make a card. hugs Cathy

    9. Thank you for the free files. The projects are wonderful too.

    10. Very generous of you to give us these two files. Thanks!
