The Sistas Challenges May 11th - 18th -Poem/Song and Pretty Bugs Layouts, Stair Step Fold Card

Here are this week's challenges. Show off your imaginative and unique ideas! As you complete the challenge, please post it on "The Sistas" thread on the Cricut Message Board AND send them to - Do not send links please! Instead, email your pics.

Challenge #1 - Poem or Song
This is actually simliar to a previous challenge. Post a layout with a poem or song.

Challenge #2 - Pretty creepy crawlers
Create a layout with any pretty insect; butterfly, dragonfly, caterpillar, etc, - You must use an insect from one of the Cricut cartridges.

Challenge #3 - Courtesy of Schnurse2004 -
It's called either a Stair Step fold, or an Accordion fold, depending on the orientation of your project. This would be a Stair Step fold since it's landscape, but this fold can work either way - portrait or landscape. (See directions below....)

*************Directions For Stair Step Fold/Accordion Fold Card*****************
Cut cardstock-10.5 X 5.0 -( if you want to stamp on this, now would be the time to do it.)
Score cardstock at 1.25" - 2.5" - 4.25", 6" and 8.25"
Fold with hills and valleys (accordion style) making sure that the smallest (1.25" fold) is folded down, as this will be the front of your card)

Once you look at the samples, you will see what I'm referring to. Now here's the fun part...decorate with ANYTHING...punches, cut-outs, stickers, flowers, stickles, skittles...whatever your theme is, run with it. These cards may be done in landscape or portrait orientation so 'step it up' and let your imagination run wild. See a few samples here .........
