FCCB Challenge #167 "Red White and Blue" Cricut Crawl & Birthday GIVEAWAY!

Fantabulous Cricut
 
Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog "Red, White, and Blue" Cricut Crawl.
In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!
If you've come from Catarina, you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE to start at the beginning.
 
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!

 My project today is not only for the crawl but is part of an ongoing series I like to call Caseing the Cameo. The layout I cased is from Faith Abigail Designs. Be sure to visit her website to see her original layout. Be sure to watch the video to get the recipe and see how it all gets put together.




 
Your next stop is Connie at Connie Can Crop.  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

Happy Crawling!!

Here is the line up in case you get lost:
 

Today, I also my 40th birthday. Yikes! I finally set it aloud! I have also been blogging for 5 years. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. I appreciate every one of you! To celebrate, I have a blog candy giveaway. Please watch the video below and leave your comment on this post!

I also do not have a cameo and sometimes have thought about doing cricut creations following the inspiration of cameo users. Thanks for encouraging that. Great 4th of July layout.

Also, happy birthday and happy blog anniversary. You have a lot to celebrate and I appreciate what you do. I just subscribed to your youtube channel and to your blog by email.

My name is Debbie and I live in Texas. If a winner, I would choose the Cricut Package (with Something to Celebrate) and I can be reached at tx.deb.gm@gmail dot com

Hi Cindy!

Happy 5 year blog anniversary and early Birthday! I love the page and inspiration it gave me - especially the adorable bear! I have to tell you, I completely understand what you said in your video as I too get discouraged at times when there is a lack of blog love and wonder if anyone out there is reading lol. But I love that I came across your blog in this crawl and will be a new follower as I love your projects I have checked out so far!

I would love to be entered in your giveaway for the Cricut package. My name is Brittany and I live in Maryland (U.S.)

Thanks again for the inspiration!

What a great giveaway! Congrats on all the milestones you have going on. I am very guilty about not getting to your blog everyday. I only get to watch videos about every 4 or 5 days because of a hectic schedule. Both prizes are nice but I think the Cricut package would be my choice. Janet buck2@casscomm.com I live in Illinois.

Hi I've been a subbie for awhile and love your cards.. Happy birthday and congrats, I Priscilla del Valle and I live in currently rainy florida! Lol not exactly the sunshine state! I would be so grateful either way, I own a few cricuts so I would lean towards that. Thanx for everything! Keep up the beautiful projects.

Very cute layout! I really like the patterned paper used for the layout!

Jilliene Designs said...

happy Birthday! I absolutely love my 40's (except for the energy decline and occasional ache and pain) But I'd take a little body pain over the wallow I had in my 30's! I love your layout - You have perfect balance with so many patterns. I still struggle with that magic formula, but you make it look easy. great job!
