Charming-BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are doing well this February Monday! The weathermen lied and said it was going to be 50 degrees on Sunday, well that didn't happen! I was so disappointed! Oh well, that's the way it goes. As you know if it is Monday, then it is time for a new challenge over at BBTB2. I am hosting this week and my challenge was for my Design Team sisters to use the charm feature that some Cricut cartridges have. Base Camp, Doodlecharms, Jasmine and Life's A Beach are a few cartridges that have a charm feature. I used Doodlecharms for my charms. I made a Project Life layout, trying to get some of my millions of pictures in an album. So my layout is simple so I can gitter' done! For my journaling spot I put a charm in the right hand corner in a frame. The frame is a die from My Creative Time, my charm is a cute snowman that I glittered with stickles and then put a coating of Glossy Accents on top of.  I punched a hole in the frame and put a Tim Holtz brad/jump ring through. Then I opened the jump ring and hung my charm on it once it was dry. So my cute snowman swings freely. I cut two more charms, the snowflakes from Doodlecharms and put a hole in my pictures and attached these two snowflake charms with an eyelet and coated those in Glossy Accents as well. My title I used My Creative Time Alpha's in all caps, with a large snowflake die also from My Creative Time in place of the "O" in "got & snow". And that is it folks. Simple, fast and easy. I think the charms are so cute and I really love how they look! I will be using this feature more in the future!  Want to see more inspiration? Then go over to BBTB2 and see what my DT sisters have for you. Now it is your turn, lets see how you use Cricut charms on your project! Make sure to use your Cricut for the charm and then link up with us so we can see your lovely projects.

As always I want to thank you wonderful peeps for taking the time out your day to visit me. I love your sweet comments, you truly make my heart sing! Crafty hugs, Brenda

love how you put the charms onto the paper, those brads and the one with the snowman are great ideas. I didn't know how to 'attach' the charms on mine, so I didn't. wish I would have thought of brads. Great theme, thanks for hosting and sharing today

Your snow pictures are beautiful. I love all the charms and how you used them. I haven't used them on any of my projects, before, so it definitely challenged me. I love your layout!

Such a fun challenge idea, Brenda! We actually did make up to 55 degrees on Sunday-felt like spring! I was sorely disappointed when we were back to regular programming of 32 today! I had not really tried using the charm feature before this challenge, but I will definitely be doing it again! LOVE your adorable glittery snowman charm especially!!!

Love this PL page. I love snow pages. They always look like so much fun. (probably because we don't have to deal with it - haha) The charm is so cute. And I love the "got snow"!

Brenda, a 1000 and one apologies for my tardy commenting! I'm trying to get caught up but oh my...with work, travel and DT tasks (I can't believe how some gals manage being on several teams)...I'm perpetually on "fallen behind" status! Right now, though, I'm catching up with you, before we begin our 6 hour (or more) drive home! Your snowman charm has me clasping my hands in utter delight! Sparkly, glittery and that crooked little smile: simply adorable! He adds an extra touch of wonderful whimsy to your ultra-fabulous layout! Your creativity is pure delight! Thank you so much for you visits to my blog; you are a ray of sunshine!
Hugs galore~c
