  1. Beautiful projects...super excited to be in the DT with such talented ladies.

  2. Man you girls totally rocked this challenge :-) Your projects were absolutely fantastic :-)

  3. Wow! All these projects are beautiful! I kind of understand the rules but was just wondering if the free files have to be used in conjunction with an outside program like MTC or SCAL? I would love to play but don't use these programs and use a Cricut.

  4. WOW! All the DT projects are awesomw. The cut files on all the projects are so darn cute. Hugs, Fran

  5. Hi Gigi, yes in order to use these files with your Cricut, you will have to have a 3rd party software. If you want to use your Cricut and cartridges, please go to our Cricut blog: we have weekly challenges there for use with your beloved bug and cartridges :-) Thanks so much! Melin

  6. How wonderful to see all the great Easter themed projects! I am sooo excited to be part of a group devoted to awesome die cuts.

  7. I can't pick a favorite from the DT examples! They are all so beautiful! All of you ladies are so talented! I may try to see if I can come up with something for this challenge but I'm sure it won't be as cute as what I've already seen! LOL!
