WELCOME to Challenge #73 - Let the Troubles Begin

"A Die-lirious Holiday Season
(December 7, 2020, to January 3, 2021) 

Thing 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "I am in a state of wild excitement! There are only 18 days until Christmas and it's time to get Die-lirious. Select your favorite cutting tool, i.e. dies, punches, and/or cutting machines, and finish your holiday cards, tags, ornaments, gift box/bags, money and gift card holders, etc.  

If you have completed all of your holiday preparation this may be a good time to prepare a scrapbook page(s) for your 2020 festivities -  and hopefully, the only festivities limited by a Pandemic. For this challenge, blanks can be placed on the scrapbook page in place of photos.  

If you use a Cricut for your project (or Silhouette, Brother ScanNCut, or another similar device) you will get an extra chance for the DTC random draw.      

You can stop here... 
OR, you can decide to use the Optional Twist below.  

Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "Since we are Wrapping It Up, let's include either patterned paper in your project and/or a "Tie It Up" twist by including string, cord, ribbon, twine, tinsel, etc. The choice is yours.

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.

Thing 2: Double Dare 
says, "Bitten by the Bug 2 is a challenge that usually requires the inclusion of a cut from a Cricut, however, we CUT a holiday Die'al with them." 

"For this challenge only, they are accepting the use of cut items from punches, dies, and any digital cutting machine, but NO fussy-cutting! You don't need to use Twisted Sister's optional twist to enter and you will still earn an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw" when you enter your project HERE for Bitten by The Bug 2." 

 Once you've wrapped up the holidays, what's better than receiving a crafting gift after the holidays?  In addition to the random draw prize, we will pick a favorite in each of the following categories and you will receive a Gift Card. To qualify, you must identify in your post what machine or tool you used for your project... don't keep us guessing  
  • Cards, Tags 
  • Gift Boxes, Ornaments, Table Display  
  • Scrapbook Page 
  • Machine-made Project (for using a Cricut, Silhouette, Brother ScanNCut, or another similar device) 

Please make a note of the Challenge dates. Challenge #73 begins on Monday, December 7, 2020 and ends on Sunday evening, January 3, 2021. The Design Team will be posting photos of additional projects on Monday, December 21, 2020.  

Change to Double Trouble Rules on entries per challenge: Since the challenge is open for a month, the first two weeks you can submit up to 4 Entries (Dec 7 - Dec 20), 
and another 4 entries can be submitted for the second two weeks (Dec 21-Jan 3).
