BBTB2 - Christmas in July

Good Morning! Hope you all enjoyed a good weekend.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and it is my turn to host.
The theme is Christmas in July. So any project Christmas related made with your cricut.
Most of you know I love making 3D things and I went with a gift box...
I used TBBM2 to make this box to put these little Molton Brown soaps in.
The box is cut at 9" and the DP is Nordic Christmas by First Edition.
I used Dec 25th to cut the snowflake at 2.5" and a Leanne Creatief poinsettia die for the flower.
A little inking and a greeting from LOTV to complete it.
These are going to be table gifts for Christmas for the ladies.
I shall add their names to each box.
My DT sisters have lots more wonderful projects to inspire you.
It's a great time to get a head start on the festive season and I'm looking forward to seeing your seasonal creations.

BBTB2 - Beach Hut

Good Morning Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our lovely Caroline has chosen a beach theme this week.
What a fab challenge as we are enjoying a heatwave in the UK! A summer at last...haven't seen much of one for the last couple of years! We have beach huts at most of our seaside resorts and that was my inspiration for this project.
I used Sweet Tooth Boxes for the hut cut at 8".
I made some alterations such as adding an opening door and curtains.
I scored lines and sanded back to create sun bleached wood.
The surfboard was cut at 2.5",flip flops at 1" both from Life's a Beach.
I took this photo in a bunker at the golf course!
I rolled card to create legs and added floorboards inside!
I am really pleased how this turned out  and looks suitably summery in my conservatory!
Fire up your cricuts and come and play in the sand and do check out my DT sisters .... you won't be disappointed.

Ice Cream Tags

Happy Monday Everyone, hope you had a great weekend.
To celebrate National Ice Cream Month our sweet and talented Brenda has chosen an ice cream theme as our challenge this week over at BBTB2.
I love making tags but never have any on hand when I need one
so that was my inspiration behind these....
Doodlecharms - ice cream cut at 2"
Just Tag Dies and Chocolate Greetings both from My Creative Time.
I popped up the ice creams for added dimension.
My fellow DTers have lots of wonderful inspiration for you so do check them out and come and play along with us.
Thanks for looking.
