Fab Five Friday!

Welcome to Fab Five Friday! For those of you that are new to this blog, every Friday I showcase five blogs, websites or posts that I think you will enjoy.

I have a new obsession and I bet you know what it is. I am in love with digital paper and especially enjoy all the amazing freebies. Thank goodness, because I am buying way too much paper! This set is currently free along with over 31 additional paper and digital packs. Check out Design Digital’s freebies, but while you are there you will fall in love with all their designers. Warning! You can spend hours looking at this site and buying paper! Enjoy the beautiful freebies.

Beth from Thunderbirdlindy by Design created a beautiful and intricate tea cup filled with gorgeous flowers using Cricut Cartridges. Her tea cup is from the new Tags Bags Boxes and More2 cartridge. I so need to order that cartridge as I love and use the first one a lot! Beth also has a very detailed tutorial on how to make this elegant project. You will be impressed!

When I discovered Craft Crave I did a happy dance. Lucky for me….only my cats saw me! Craft Cave is a search engine that’s collects freebies. It is not perfect but gives you access to a variety of crafting freebies. Here is an explanation from the owners telling more about this site. “This blog is dynamically constructed by a computer program. You can think of it as an automated search engine for freebies, tutorials, challenges, etc found in other craft blogs. The program works by going through a list of thousands of blogs that it has found and it scans those blogs to identify (1) if they have been updated since the system last looked and (2) if they contain any new freebies etc. If both of these are true, then the system lists it here. It uses a bunch of “rules/patterns” to identify useful posts in blogs and then another bunch of “rules/patterns” to try to find the best preview image to use.” Keep in mind it is constructed by a computer so it is not perfect, but boy is it fun!

Tanya from Nonna’s Craft Corner decorated a paper mache heart box that would be perfect for a gift. Not only is the box beautiful, but she also provides a detail tutorial. I would love to receive a box like this as a gift.

Kevin and Amanda is a unique and visually appealing blog. Their blog includes sections on recipes, photos, scrapbooking and free fonts. I love their photos and click here to see photos of their trip to Wonderland Bakery. I so want to visit. Also be sure to check out their huge collection of free fonts.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a fun filled Fab Friday!

I always enjoy your Friday links, Linda. Thanks so much for sharing them! I'd missed Tanya's box so am especially delighted to have seen it!
Now I've got something for you! I came across a blog via Facebook and thought you might be interested in the giveaway at the end of the post (or even the information pertaining to the classes):

Thanks Kate, the freebies are beautiful. My friend Katie also mentioned the class and I am so going to take it. In fact, I will mention next week as part of my Fab Friday post.

Thanks again for the great link.
