Easter is just around the corner, but there is still time to make some Easter projects! The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to create an Easter themed project. I made this cute bunny card from the Winter Woodland cartridge and the Hope collection from Authentique.
I absolutely love this paper and its vintage vibe. I added lots of inking around the papers and Cricut cuts to continue the rustic feel. For the inside sentiment, I used one of the coordinating elements from the paper collection.
Please join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the other design team projects and then link up your own artwork! There are so many fun Easter cuts and we can’t wait to see what you make!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Laurie
The Bitten by the Bug 2 design team was asked to create projects using a Banner or Sign this week. I recently saw a canvas project with a cute bunny and the words “hippity-hop” at a store and used that as my inspiration. Instead of putting my cuts on a canvas, I decided to put my design in an old rustic frame that I had laying around in the basement.
I used the beautiful Hope paper collection by Authentique. There is just something about soft blues and browns that appeals to me lately. The bunny was cut from the Easter 2010 cartridge and the banner and “hippity hop” were from Artistry by Close To My Heart. I think this cute bunny will make a fun addition to my Easter décor!
You really should check out the other projects containing a Banner or Sign at Bitten by the Bug 2 and then get busy crafting so you can share your projects too!
Thanks for stopping by today–I hope you have a fabulous week! Laurie
This week’s Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge is Birthday Bash. I made a masculine birthday card using the Southwest Cricut cartridge for my design team project. But I also made a second card that I want to share with you today.
This card was made with older paper from Authentique, my second favorite paper company besides Close To My Heart, of course! The Cricut cut is from Birthday Bash.
I love the simplicity of this design and the colors are perfect for a guy! I added a diagonal strip of various textiles as the only embellishment and DONE!
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate every one of you! Laurie
This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 the theme is APPLES! I was excited to see this challenge since Autumn has a special apple memory for me and I was happy to have a reason to document that memory on a scrapbook page. Every Autumn I have to make several batches of Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce, a recipe that came from my Grandma. She passed away when I was only 14 years old, so this cake always makes me think of her.
I used some Authentique paper and embellishments from my stash, and the apple Cricut cuts are from Artbooking and Classroom–August and September. I manipulated the images in Design Space, making an apple frame and apple border. The apple that was cut inside the frame became another embellishment on the page. The lace embellishments remind me of an apron that my grandma might have worn back in the day.
I plan to place a copy of the Apple Cake recipe behind the apple photo frame so that whomever gets this scrapbook when I am gone will see how important it was to me and they can even make the yummy cake too! Doesn’t it look good?
Please visit the Bitten by the Bug 2 site to see the other projects created by my talented design team sisters. Then get your Cricuts busy creating your own APPLE projects to share with all of us! We love to see what everyone has to share! Laurie
