Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge Entry

I think I have another addiction… I’ve been bitten by the bug (cricut that is).

They have a monthly challenge and I need Christmas presents …sooooo, here is the challenge details:


The theme for this month’s challenge is all about cozying up your home with Handmade Home Decor! Please create a home decor project. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify:

  • Use atleast one Cricut Cartridge Cut
  • Use the Cuttlebug in some way (embossing folder, Cuttlebug die, Quilling kit, etc.)
  • Use Felt in some way
  • Use the color GREEN somewhere on your project

I had a billion ideas, but, I remember Jen saying she wished she had somewhere to put her keys, and I’m always searching the house for my mail… so Walah!
