One of my favorite brands of paper comes from Crate Paper -- I love this Farmhouse Collection line...And using three patterns from the same line means everything matches -- so it is easy to take a risk and use patterned paper with your cricut.

BBTB2 Purse Challenge

At BBTB2 we have a purse challenge going on, hosted by Diana L. from DL.ART. And even though the humidity is killing me, leaves are starting to turn, and I am in a fall mood. I wanted to use my new Tags, Bags, Boxes & More2 cartridge, but to my surprise there were no purses! So I went old-school, back to my Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. It is still a must-have cart!
