Summer Nights at BBTB2

Hello Friends!

Do you live where there are fireflies?  Well, they are prolific here in Nebraska and it just doesn’t seem like summer until we see their twinkly lights once more!  Unfortunately, there are no fireflies where my grandchildren live, but I can’t wait until they visit in the summer and participate in a traditional lightning bug hunt.  And I will be prepared with this layout!

The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week is Summer Nights–use a Cricut cut of stars, campfires, fireflies or anything you associate with a hot summer night.

The background paper is from a retired Close To My Heart collection called Florence.  The Cricut cuts are from Summer Love, Simple Pop Up Cards and A Child’s Year (font).  I took a firefly from the pop up card, attached it to a hexagon and then “sliced”.  After placing a yellow layer behind the firefly hexagon, voila! a nice embellishment that I duplicated for the border along the edge of the page.  Love Design Space!!

Pop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the Summer Night projects by my design team sisters.  Then get out your Cricuts and create your own Summer Nights artwork to link up for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by today!   Laurie

  1. magnificent layout – love how you used the hexis and fireflies — such a beautiful layout. we don’t have fireflies here in northern california, but we saw them last year in Texas – and just sat outside and loved the glow. have a great summer

  2. I love all the fireflies on your layout and the pretty hexagon border. Fabulous layout! I have lots of fond memories of hunting fireflies. It is such a fun little bug!

  3. THIS, my friend, is wonderful! I love what you did with this challenge. Your colors and cuts are amazing. And for the second week in a row, if this was a “who used it better” contest, YOU WIN! Love what you did here.
