Autumn Layout for BBTB2

Posted on

Hello Friends!

The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week is to use Autumn themed Cricut cuts on your artwork.  My son and his family will be coming home for Thanksgiving this year, so I thought I would get a head start on some layouts for the hundreds of photos I’m sure I will take!  I used the amazing new You Are Here cartridge from Close To My Heart.  I love that this cartridge has so much more than just images for travel!

The paper is from the CTMH Falling For You collection.  I added the buttons from the Complements pack, a PML card, twine and sequins as embellishments.  Scrapbooking is seriously so much easier when everything coordinates like the fabulous Close To My Heart products!

So let’s all start thinking about all the wonderful Autumn themed Cricut cuts out there and share your projects at Bitten by the Bug 2 for everyone to enjoy!  We love to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by–do something AWESOME every day!   Laurie


Stronger Together

Hello Friends!

Wow, has the weather been crazy lately!  From hurricanes and floods to wild fires and earthquakes, it seems like Mother Nature has been on a rampage!  Close To My Heart has created a special stamp set called Stronger Together as a fundraiser for victims of these recent natural disasters.  One hundred percent of the proceeds of this exclusive stamp set goes to the Red Cross to help victims of these disasters across the U.S.  Take a look at the great sentiments on this amazing stamp set!

I just got my stamp set a couple of days ago and had to use it right away!  I made a pop up box card and used one of the sentiments as a focal point for the front of the card.  I also used the new leaf embossing folder on gold metallic paper to make a decorative border on the sides of the card.  The paper is from the Falling For You collection.

If you would like to help with the disaster relief with a donation to the Red Cross, please consider purchasing one of the Stronger Together (C1716) stamp sets.  I’m sure you will get lots of use from the awesome sentiments on this set.  The cost is only $13.95 and 100% of the proceeds (no commission for consultants) is donated to the Red Cross.  Shop HERE to get Stronger Together.  Thanks so much for your donation!   Laurie
