Don’t Bug Me!!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use an INSECT cut on your projects. Well, I have recently been playing with the Dreamin’ Big papers from Close To My Heart and it has a cute bug print paper, so that was my inspiration!  There is a Thin Cut/Stamp set that goes with this paper, but I wasn’t able to purchase one before they sold out, so I went to my old friend, Design Space instead!  And there are a lot of bugs on Design Space, let me tell you!

I chose insects from Garden Soup, Dinosaur Tracks and Potions and Spells to crawl up the side of my layout.  I think they go great with the papers and the “totally boy” photos of my grandson.  All the other embellishments are from the Dreamin’ Big Complements package.  Unfortunately, this collection retired on April 30 and is no longer available.

For the right side of the layout, I chose flowers and the “explore” title to go with the photo of my grandson examining some early spring flowers.  He seems to enjoy flowers as much as his grandma!

Stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 and see the other design team projects with INSECT cuts!  Then help us celebrate spring by sharing your own “buggy” projects!

Thanks for stopping by–make today awesome!!   Laurie

Butterflies and Bees at BBTB2

Hello Friends!

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2, the challenge is to create a project with a Cricut butterfly or bee.  I found these great bees on the Garden Soup cartridge and just happen to need a few birthday cards this month, so this card was born!  I’m glad I remembered some old Teresa Collins paper with bees that I had and decided to use it for the background.


Be sure to stop by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog to see the other Butterflies and Bees projects made by the design team.  Then link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy.  You know you are ready for some springtime projects!!

Check out the April promotions from Close To My Heart below.  If you have ever thought about becoming a consultant, now is the time!  I would love to talk to you about this amazing business opportunity.  I have truly enjoyed every moment of my time as a consultant.  I’ve met so many great people, gotten fabulous discounts on CTMH products and earned some extra spending money to boot!  Ask me how!!
