Giving Thanks at Bitten by the Bug 2

Posted on

Hello Friends!

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”!

Don’t forget about the big Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales at Close To My Heart this week!  Check out the photo below for details.

Fall Colors Challenge at BBTB2

Posted on

Hello Friends!

I don’t know about where you live, but the beautiful fall leaves are almost gone here in Nebraska.  There are just a few trees left with any of the gorgeous colors that I love so much, so I was happy to extend the love with this week’s Fall Colors challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2.  I made a card with an older paper pack from Die Cuts With a View and coordinating cardstock from Close To My Heart.

I decided to challenge my Cricut Explore by choosing a very intricate design from Autumn Celebrations which I found on the Design Space subscription.  It was definitely up to the challenge and the cut came out just perfect!  The hardest part was applying adhesive to such thin lines without making a huge mess! Besides the fabulous Explore, I am a firm believer in using quality cardstock when making these kinds of cuts and the Close To My Heart paper has never disappointed me.
