This week at Bitten by the Bug 2, we are thinking Arbor Day and Trees! The challenge is to use a TREE cut to make a project. Since we always seem to need sympathy cards, I decided to make one to have on hand.
I used paper from the Hello Lovely collection from Close To My Heart to make this card. It paired nicely with Fern cardstock for the tree image from Artistry, also from Close To My Heart. It is hard to see in the photo, but I attached the tree image to a rectangle shape and then used the Slice feature to make a window in the top card layer that has the tree image. I then cut a separate tree image in Fern cardstock to attach over the trees cut in the window. The sentiment is from a retired stamp set, also by Close To My Heart.
I hope you can take a minute to stop by Bitten by the Bug 2 to see more TREE projects created by my talented design team sisters! Then join the fun and link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Do something AWESOME today! Laurie
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
The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is Mix and Match! We were asked to design a project using papers from different paper collections. I chose to use Hello Lovely and Uptown Fundamentals for these beautiful beach photos of my son and his family right before their second son was born.
I love how the gold foil striped paper from Uptown Fundamentals adds a little bling and elegance to the subtle colors of the Hello Lovely papers. Plus the Sea Glass print perfectly matched the color of the ocean in the photos!
Please head over to Heart 2 Heart Challenges to see the Mix and Match projects made the rest of the Ruby Design Team. Then be sure to share your own artwork for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have an awesome week! Laurie
