Do you live where there are fireflies? Well, they are prolific here in Nebraska and it just doesn’t seem like summer until we see their twinkly lights once more! Unfortunately, there are no fireflies where my grandchildren live, but I can’t wait until they visit in the summer and participate in a traditional lightning bug hunt. And I will be prepared with this layout!
The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week is Summer Nights–use a Cricut cut of stars, campfires, fireflies or anything you associate with a hot summer night.
The background paper is from a retired Close To My Heart collection called Florence. The Cricut cuts are from Summer Love, Simple Pop Up Cards and A Child’s Year (font). I took a firefly from the pop up card, attached it to a hexagon and then “sliced”. After placing a yellow layer behind the firefly hexagon, voila! a nice embellishment that I duplicated for the border along the edge of the page. Love Design Space!!
Pop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the Summer Night projects by my design team sisters. Then get out your Cricuts and create your own Summer Nights artwork to link up for everyone to enjoy!
Amazingly, Easter is just around the corner! I thought I would try out a couple of the Make It Now projects on Design Space. These are really awesome projects that you can just click on and cut without doing any work besides deciding on which papers to use. But if you want to adjust the design, you can by first clicking on “custom”. Then you can change the size, layers, etc. to your own needs. I did change the size of these cards to my usual A7 (6.5 x 5 inch) size. Enjoy this little touch of Spring!!
If you have never tried out the Make It Now projects, I would suggest that you check them out! They really are quick and easy since the designing has been done for you!
Valentine’s Day is next week! Do you have your cards made? Here are a couple that I played around with today. Have I ever said that I LOVE Design Space? It is so easy to search for images, design online and actually see what your project will look like before you cut!
The cuts came from various cartridges and I honestly didn’t keep track of which ones I used. Cardstock is from Close To My Heart and the heart embossing folder is also from CTMH.
