Celebrating Friends at Heart 2 Heart!

Hello Friends!

This week at Heart 2 Heart we are celebrating FRIENDSHIP!  I created a layout using the amazing Jack paper collection by Close To My Heart.  The Cricut cut is from the Artbooking cartridge.  I used the Marker Alphabet stamp to spell out “friends” and the other embellishments are from the Jack Complements pack.

If you would like to see the other Heart 2 Heart design team projects with a FRIENDSHIP theme, please stop by the blog.  Then link up your own projects and join in the fun!

It’s a Birthday Celebration at BBTB2!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 we are celebrating BIRTHDAYS!  I chose to get out my new Little Dreamer  Paper and Cardmaking Thin Cuts bundle for the first time to make this cute birthday card for a little girl.  I used the Artistry and Artbooking cartridges from Close To My Heart to make the birthday sentiment on the front of the card.

The card design is a center panel step fold and I found the directions on Pinterest.  I thought the center panel would be the perfect way to feature that adorable unicorn!  What little girl doesn’t love unicorns?   Everyone needs birthday cards to have on hand, so here is your chance to replenish your supply!  And while you’re at it, link up those cards at Bitten by the Bug 2 to share with everyone!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Something WONDERFUL is about to happen!!   Laurie


Oh, Baby!!

Hello Friends!

It’s Baby Week at Bitten by the Bug 2!  We are celebrating all things babies from cards to layouts and everything in between.  And boy, do I have a baby to share!  My new grandson was born on December 29 and here is one of my first scrapbook layouts to celebrate this new little sweetie.

I used retired Georgie paper from Close To My Heart along with Peacock, Canary and Juniper cardstock.  The Cricut cuts are from Wild Card, Flower Market and Artbooking.  On the right side of the layout I layered the coordinating Picture My Life cards behind the photos.  The journaling block is another PML card.

Be sure to check out the other design team projects at Bitten by the Bug 2.  Then make your own baby project and share with us for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make this an AWESOME day!   Laurie


Something NEW for BBTB2!!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

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!

 


October Swan Lake Workshop

Posted on

Hello Friends!

I am so pleased to announce my October Scrapbook Workshop featuring the new Swan Lake paper collection!  At first I wasn’t all that crazy about this paper pack, but after taking it out of the bag and working with it to make these layouts, my mind has certainly been changed!!  I really love it now!  Take a look–

These layouts were made with just one Swan Lake paper pack and one set of Swan Lake complements.  Add a few Cricut cuts, a little Poppy Thick Twine and photo mats from coordinating cardstock and there you have it–layouts perfect for Thanksgiving or any family themed photos!

I would be happy to make a set of layouts for you for only $23.00! 

I will cut all the parts and pieces so all you need to do is assemble.  You can attend my open house style workshop (Saturday, October 29 from 9:00 to 5:00 or Sunday, October 30 from 1:00 to 5:00) to make the layouts or I can mail you a kit of all three layouts for an additional $5.00.  If you want to attend the October workshop, I would need to have your RSVP by October 18th so I have time to order and prepare the materials.  Email, call or message me for any details!

Thanks for stopping by today!  To purchase any of the products I used, shop HERE.  I appreciate your interest in scrapbooking and Close To My Heart!    Laurie


Halloween is Coming!

Hello Friends!

This card is one I made for a recent card swap.  I used Close To My Heart cardstock and ink in Pansy, Emerald, Slate, and Willow and Tangerine.  The Cricut cuts are from Artbooking and the stamped images are from the new Halloween stamp set called Monster Crossing. 

You can purchase the supplies to make this card by shopping HERE.  Plus check out the awesome Stamp of the Month that you can only get during October!
