I am so LUCKY to be hosting the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week! With St. Patrick’s Day coming in a couple of weeks, I thought it would be fun to get LUCKY with our crafting projects. The challenge this week is to use the word “lucky” or symbols of LUCK (horseshoes, clovers, rabbit feet) on a project. We can all use a little reminder of the wonderful things in our lives that make us truly LUCKY or we can wish a special someone GOOD LUCK!
I made a simple scrapbook layout using a cut from Flower Market by Close To My Heart that was perfect to describe this picture of me with my two grandsons. The paper is from Hello Lovely, also by Close To My Heart. I added a few gold glitter gems and a ribbon as embellishments to let the photo and the subtle colors of these papers tell the story of this special moment.
Please stop by Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the projects created by my amazing design team sisters. You will feel so LUCKY after you’ve seen their fabulous work that I know you’ll want to create one of your own to share!
Take time to reflect on the little things in your life that make you truly LUCKY!! Laurie
At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week the challenge is to create a project using RED and WHITE. I made this simple card from Flower Market and Art Philosophy(retired) cartridges by Close To My Heart. It was really hard for me to stick to only two colors so I just had to add a splash of green for the flower’s stem.
I used two retired embossing folders which are on clearance from Close To My Heart (Diamonds and Dots) to add more interest and texture to the card and popped up several elements using dimensional foam. The white layer behind the flower is cut from glitter paper.
Please hop on over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the beautiful red and white projects created by my design team sisters. Then get busy making your own projects to link up for us all to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by today! Eat lots of chocolate this week in honor of Valentine’s Day! Laurie
This week I am double dipping! My project is for BOTH the Heart 2 Heart challenge (COLD HANDS, WARM HEARTS) and the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge (SNOW MUCH FUN). Unfortunately these challenges are way too appropriate for those of you in the Midwest dealing with the huge ice storm slowly making its way across your area. Ice is so much “trickier” than plain old snow, so I hope all of my family and friends back in southeast Nebraska stay warm and safe! On the other hand, I will be enjoying the abnormally high temps here in the Florida panhandle! (Sorry, couldn’t resist…)
Now back to the challenges at hand–wouldn’t this layout be perfect for a special wintry photo?
All of my Cricut cuts are from the Flower Market cartridge by Close To My Heart. The background paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection and the cardstock is New England Ivy, Glacier and White Daisy. It is hard to see from the photo, but the snowflakes and the “Winter Wonderland” were cut with white glitter cardstock.
Please stop by the Heart 2 Heart Challenges site and the Bitten by the Bug 2 site to check out the winter themed projects created by the two talented design teams. Then link up your own projects to share for even more inspiration! We love to see your artwork!
Thanks for stopping by! Do something AWESOME today!! Laurie
It’s a brand new year and time for a brand new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2! This week we are celebrating all things NEW and boy, do I have the perfect new thing in my life–a new grandson! He was born on December 29 and I spent part of my New Year’s Eve rocking with that little sweetie! It was the perfect way to ring in the New Year!
I used paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection by Close To My Heart to create this layout. The Cricut cuts are from several cartridges–Artbooking, Flower Market, Graphically Speaking and Phrases. I embellished with a few enamel arrows and called it good. I think I have the perfect photo already to complete this layout!
Now it’s time for you to get your craft on and create your own projects featuring something NEW! Link it up at Bitten by the Bug 2 for everyone to enjoy!
