Back to School–Already??

Posted on

Hello Friends!

At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week we are celebrating Back to School!  It seems impossible that this can already be happening, but here we are!  As a former teacher, I am so appreciative of all the hard work teachers do to prepare for each new school as well as the excitement of meeting and working with a new group of students.  So my design team project is a tribute to teachers everywhere–you really are true HEROES!!

I used paper from a school themed paper collection by Authentique for the background of my framed artwork.  The “superboy” image is from Create a Friend and the saying is an SVG cut that I purchased from the Lori Whitlock store.  I think I know a very deserving teacher who would like this project hanging in her classroom!

Please stop by Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the other design team projects that are all about Back to School!  I’m sure you have a school themed project or two that you could share with us!

Thanks for visiting today–make it a great one!   Laurie

Football Birthday Card

Posted on

Hello Friends!

Today I’m sharing another birthday card suitable for a boy who loves sports–football in particular!  The football player image is from the Create a Friend Cricut cartridge.  The football is from the Sports Mania cartridge.  I think it’s really fun to combine cuts from various cartridges and Design Space makes it so much easier!


I found the cute background paper in the Birthday Wishes stack from Die Cuts With a View.  The big football is cut from Paper Fundamentals from Close To My Heart.  This was perfect paper as it has a glossy embossed pattern that resembles the texture of a real football!  The sentiments are also from Close To My Heart.


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!   Laurie
