Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Friday to you all! The day has finally arrived!! Today is the official launch of Cricut 360 and I am super excited!! As a proud Design Team member, I invite you to join us for all the fun :0) Our very first challenge is called “Invitation” and it is a way for all of us here to invite you in following our blog and joining us every week for new challenges. We also invite you to stop by each Design Team member’s blog; there is so much diverse inspiration out there. You will be amazed by all their talent. Also, spread the word and invite others to join in on our crafty fun. So, here is what I used for my invitation to you all.

* Cartridge Used: "Pack your Bags" Welded 2 shadow images and cut image & layers @5.50"
* All Solid cardstock: Recollections
* Patterned Paper: DCWV Citrus Mat Stack
* Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - "Forest Branches" Used on Coconut (horizontally) & orange (vertically)
* Xyron Machine (For cherry)
* Martha Stewart Glitter "Garnet"
* Stickles - Cinnamon & Orange Peel
* Chalks
* White Gel Pen

Okay, so now it’s your turn. Create and show us an invitation to any type of event (BBQ, Baby Shower, House Warming, etc.) and you can use any cartridge you want. Make sure you to link up your creation over at Cricut 360 Blog.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!

  16. Diana, I wanted to stop by and tell you how much your sweet comments mean to me. What you said on my post that I did to tell my followers I would be out for a spell with my back, was so uplifting to me. Your encouragement meant the world to me. My world has expanded because of all of you. You will never (at least I hope you will never have to find out)know how much your visits mean to me. Thank you again for every visit, and every comment you leave. Each one is very special to me. I looked for your button, but I didn't see one. As soon as you get it, I will post it on my blog. Hugs, Pam at
