An Apple a Day at BBTB2!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

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

Hello, Friends!

We are going back to school this week at Bitten by the Bug 2!  We were challenged to create a school themed project since this is the time of year that youngsters are heading back to their classrooms.  I used the Classroom–August & September cartridge on Design Space to create this cute three dimensional school house.  I decorated the school with some old Die Cuts With A View paper and a “back to school” label.


Stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the other design team school projects.  There is some great artwork there!  You are always welcome to link up your own projects there for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember to do something awesome today!   Laurie
