This week I am double dipping! My project is for BOTH the Heart 2 Heart challenge (COLD HANDS, WARM HEARTS) and the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge (SNOW MUCH FUN). Unfortunately these challenges are way too appropriate for those of you in the Midwest dealing with the huge ice storm slowly making its way across your area. Ice is so much “trickier” than plain old snow, so I hope all of my family and friends back in southeast Nebraska stay warm and safe! On the other hand, I will be enjoying the abnormally high temps here in the Florida panhandle! (Sorry, couldn’t resist…)
Now back to the challenges at hand–wouldn’t this layout be perfect for a special wintry photo?
All of my Cricut cuts are from the Flower Market cartridge by Close To My Heart. The background paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection and the cardstock is New England Ivy, Glacier and White Daisy. It is hard to see from the photo, but the snowflakes and the “Winter Wonderland” were cut with white glitter cardstock.
Please stop by the Heart 2 Heart Challenges site and the Bitten by the Bug 2 site to check out the winter themed projects created by the two talented design teams. Then link up your own projects to share for even more inspiration! We love to see your artwork!
Thanks for stopping by! Do something AWESOME today!! Laurie
It’s a brand new year and time for a brand new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2! This week we are celebrating all things NEW and boy, do I have the perfect new thing in my life–a new grandson! He was born on December 29 and I spent part of my New Year’s Eve rocking with that little sweetie! It was the perfect way to ring in the New Year!
I used paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection by Close To My Heart to create this layout. The Cricut cuts are from several cartridges–Artbooking, Flower Market, Graphically Speaking and Phrases. I embellished with a few enamel arrows and called it good. I think I have the perfect photo already to complete this layout!
Now it’s time for you to get your craft on and create your own projects featuring something NEW! Link it up at Bitten by the Bug 2 for everyone to enjoy!
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use the word “thanks” or “thankful” on a project. I had this photo of my grandson from a couple years ago that I thought would be perfect for the layout I had in mind. I am so very thankful for him!
My background paper is from Echo Park and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart. I used the CTMH Flower Market cartridge to make the fall wreath and Autumn Celebrations for the word “thankful” that I changed up in Design Space. I love it when a layout comes together so easily!
Check out the other design team projects at Bitten by the Bug 2 for some more Thanksgiving inspiration! We love it when you share your artwork for everyone to enjoy so please “link up”!

I am happy to be hosting the challenge over at Heart 2 Heart this week! The theme for the challenge is CHANGE. That could mean changes in the seasons, changes in our lives, or changes in how our children grow each year. It could also be as simple as the change from a pumpkin to a jack-o-lantern! My project documents two changes–the transformation of a plain foam pumpkin to Halloween décor and the changes in my grandson since I last saw him in May.
I took quite a few pictures of our crafting sessions–too many to nicely fit on a one page layout. So I decided to try out the new CTMH Pocket Plus Memory Protectors. You simply slip your pictures into the sleeves, then add them to your albums. Easy as pumpkin pie! In this layout I was able to add four more photos and still have a nice, clean and simple page.
I used paper from the collection along with the coordinating black glitter Complements. The embellishments and title block were cut from various Close To My Heart cartridges.
Please stop over to Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects all about CHANGES. Then link up your own artwork so we can all enjoy!
Happy Halloween! Laurie
