Summer Water Fun at BBTB2!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

I’m so happy to host the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week!  I chose the theme Summer Water Fun for you all to play with this week.  Of course, your first thought might be the beach or pool, but what about sprinklers, slip and slides, surfing, boating, fishing, water skiing, water balloons, kayaks, cruise ships and so much more?  And if you live in hot, dry, rural Nebraska, your main water fun might involve irrigation pipes or pivots!

I chose to document the first time my new grandson went swimming in the family’s backyard pool.  I saw a similar project on Pinterest where the waves were rows of torn paper, but I decided the Cricut could do the work for me.  The wave cuts are from Crocs Rule and the title is from When I Was a Kid.  All the cardstock is from Close To My Heart and the stamped images are also from CTMH.  This little guy is certainly “born to swim”!!

Please take a minute to stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2.  There are some wonderful design team projects related to Summer Water Fun that you won’t want to miss!  Then link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope your week is off to a great start!    Laurie

BBTB2 Beach Theme

Posted on

Hello Friends!

The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to create a project with a pool or beach theme.  My son and his family live near the beach in Destin, Florida.  I made a card for them a while back with this cute saying, but decided to also create a home décor piece they can display in their Florida home.


I used a combination of many Cricut cartridges when I designed this project.  The shells are from the new Mermaid Party cartridge.  The palms trees are a cut from Doodlecharms.  The dolphins are from Life is a Beach and the waves are from Crocs Rule.  The font I used for the saying is also from Life is a Beach.

It’s summertime and I’m sure lots of you have some amazing beach pictures and projects to make!  Link them up at Bitten by the Bug 2 for everyone to enjoy!

Check out the July specials from Close To My Heart and SHOP HERE to get your goodies! It’s also a wonderful time to join my CTMH team!  I’d love to have you join the fun!

I hope you can enjoy the beach or pool this week!   Laurie
