Something Sweet for H2H!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week we are celebrating all things SWEET!  That means sweets to eat or things in our lives that make life SWEET.  My design team project this week hits on both of those themes! We recently celebrated my mother’s 80th birthday, so I made this card with a sweet birthday cake image from the Simply Sweet Cricut cartridge.  That’s a lot of sweetness, for sure!

Please check out the other design team projects at Bitten by the Bug 2.  Then you can link up your own projects about anything SWEET for everyone to enjoy!  We love to see your artwork!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!   Laurie

Hello Friends!

It’s National Gumdrop Day so this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 the Design Team was challenged to create a project using a Cricut candy cut!  I LOVE gumdrops, so I thought I would give them a try.  I found the cuts in Design Space from the Sweet Shop cartridge and manipulated them a bit to fit the idea I had for this card.  Check out the other cute candy projects at BBTB2 for your “sweet” inspiration and then link up your own projects so we can all enjoy!


I embossed the yellow background with the new Confetti embossing folder from Close To My Heart and added some iridescent Stickles to give the impression of sugar coating on the gumdrops.  The inside of the card could say “It’s Your Birthday” or it could even be a congratulations card.  The appropriate accompaniment would be a bag of yummy gumdrops, of course!

Have a SWEET day, my friends!   Laurie
