Altered Frames and some sad news.

Thank you for your participation in last week's challenge. I hope you enjoyed our creations.  It is with much sadness that I am posting today the end of The Gypsy Spot. We are closing the blog down at the end of the week.  As many of you know I host The Cuttlebug Spot and added The Gypsy Spot to bring your creations with Gypsy and Cricut, I have found that having two blogs has taken a lot of my time away from other things I enjoy.  I may bring this blog back in the future, but for now it's a  sad good bye. 


Thank you so much for your support.  Thank you to my Design Team.. you are all so very talented and I wish you the best in all your endeavors. I and many others will continue to admire your creations by visiting your blogs.  


Winner for last week was post #6 Ammie L. Smith  .. please send me an email to claim your prize. 




Our last challenge was to alter some frames. Enjoy and visit The Cuttlebug Spot for more altered frame inspirations.

This week we are sharing projects completed with Post-it® Craft Paper. I hope you enjoy them. This paper can be found at Jo-ann's and other craft retailers.

This week we are announcing a change to our weekly challenges. Our blog was started for Gypsy users, but we know that there are many out there that do not own a Gypsy or Desing Studio. Therefore, we are going to open all challenges to Cricut creations in general so that more of you can participate. We would love to see your projects just make sure you include some Cricut cuts. Our focus remains the Gypsy and its potential to enhance our creativity, but its not a must to enter our challenges. 
 Now for this week's challenge and prize. I am so happy to announce that Post-It® has offered to sponsor some of our challenges. They have a new line of adhesive backed craft paper that works awesome in your Cricut. The paper can be embossed and punched with paper punches. It's so easy to work with. Please visit their site here to find more information.
You will see some creations from our Design Team in the future using this paper, but you can enter for a chance to win a pack here along with one of my favorite new cartridges, Love Struck mini just in time for those Valentine's Day creations. 





Just follow these simple rules to enter :
 Give us a link to a Cricut creation using Gold and Black. Use the Mr. Linky box at the end of this post to share your link.
  or  
Post about our challenge on your blog and give us a link to your post using Mr. Linky.


***only entries done through Mr. Linky will be considered for the prize. 
Don't for get to sign up to follow the blog so you can come back and play along each week.                           
Good luck to all and have a great week. Winner will be chosen Monday January 25th. Deadline for all entries is Sunday the 24th Midnight.
