BBTB2 Challenge Spring Equinox

Pin It

Hello and welcome to our latest challenge Spring Equinox.  The planet marks a seasonal change in the coming week depending on where you live on this planet you may or may not be seeing the signs of Spring bud.  Wherever in the world you are we encourage you to create a spring inspired project.  And now for a twist...we have collaborated with  Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge Blog for this challenge.  Therefore, we are opening up the normal golden rule to use a Cricut machine.  So for this challenge only, you can use any electronic die cutting machine, manual die cutting machine or punch.  They have several layers to their challenge and I have shared their post below and encourage you to play along with one, two or all three of the layers of this challenge.  

WELCOME to Challenge #52
Let the Troubles Begin 

"Die-lirious and Punchy"

THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "I'm feeling Die-lirious and Punchy!  Include at least one Spring item on your project made with  punches, dies, cutting machines and even fussy-cutting (i.e. hand punches, die cutting machines, Cricut, Silhouette, Scan & Cut, scissors, etc).    

You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to use Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below. 

THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "Winter is behind us and Spring is just around the corner what many believe to be the best season of them all!  Hope I'm not bugging you; but it's time to put some sweetness in our projects and why not include a bee, the makers of honey, or their honeycombs.    

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.

THING 2:  Double Dare
says, "Bitten By the Bug is a challenge that usually requires cuts from your Cricut machine, however, we were able to CUT a Die'al." 

For this challenge Bitten By the Bug is accepting the use of hand punches, die cutting machines, even fussy-cutting! Besides using a Cricut you are free to use Silhouette, Brother Scan and Cut or other similar devices. Be sure to tell us in your blog post. 

So, if you have used a Spring theme and at least one cut from any of these machines, you can click on Bitten By the Bug's "Spring Equinox" Challenge.  You don't need to use Twisted Sister's optional twist to enter and you will still earn an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw. 
Our Design Team has some  Inspiration for you all. Be sure to check their projects out on the blog Bitten by the Bug 2.

I hope you got this all! Sounds so fun!!
For my layout I created a Spring Layout but did not include the optional twist. And of course I used my Cricut.
I used the Happy Easter Cartridge and Seasonal Characters.

Head on over to Bitten By the Bug 2 before March 29th to enter this Challenge!! Hope to see some great stuff from you all!

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!
