ScrapbookerPhD Challenge #1

Winter Holidays  **(This Challenge incorporates the use of Cricut Die Cuts. Don't have a Cricut machine? You can still play. Email me at and keep reading.) 

Here's the catch:
Winter Holidays Without using Holiday Cricut Cartridges (Guest Desinger Spots for Top 3 Picks)

**(This Challenge incorporates the use of Cricut Die Cuts. Don't have a Cricut machine, you can still play and win the random prize, but Top 3 picks must use Cricut.) 

Memory Works

Follow Memory Works and Representative Gina Karas

In this challenge, you can choose any winter holiday for inspiration from Halloween to Valentine's Day. Here's the hard part: you cannot use Cricut holiday cartridges. Required element: at least one Cricut Die Cut on your entry. 
How do you choose a cartridge? Don't worry. You don't need a holiday cartridge to find a die cut. Using, you can find what you need. Here's an example: say you want to do a Valentine's Day card. First, go to and type in LOVE in the Search Box. You will end up with over 200 options. Options are listed alphabetically by Cartridge, and guess what, the first page of options include 3 Birds on Parade, A Child's Year, All Mixed Up and Close to My Heart: Artiste. None of those cartridges are Valentine's Day cartridges, but they have great Valentine's Day elements. Don't trust me, try it and see what happens. Need more help? Check out this POST at
Remember you can create any paper craft - card, layout, tag, etc.
Codes: 1M, 3E, C5.
*Be sure your blog post explains which cartridge you used.
