Jolly Old St. Nicholas!

Hello, Friends!

It is my pleasure (Ho Ho Ho) to introduce the fun challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2--use a SANTA cut on a project!  I loved this Santa from Seasonal Characters and thought he would be a great embellishment for my layout all ready for photos of my grandsons visiting Santa this year.  I also used Teresa Collins’s December 25th cartridge for the word “Santa” and Winter Frolic for the stack of presents.  The paper and coordinating cardstock are from the Beary Christmas collection by Close To My Heart.

Be sure to stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 for lots more Christmas cheer and Ho Ho Ho’s!  The design team has been busy searching for their favorite Santa cuts to share with you this week.  Don’t forget to link up your own projects with a Santa cut because everyone needs a smile!

Have a blessed Christmas week!    Laurie

Penguin Valentine for BBTB2

Posted on

Hello Friends!

This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 the theme is Penguins–perfect for these cold January days!  Since I need to get working on my Valentine cards, I decided to kill two birds with one stone (sorry all you penguins out there) and make a Penguin Valentine!


The penguin Cricut cut is from Winter Frolic, but I changed him up a bit in Design Space, taking off his hat and the pinwheel in his hand.  The heart border is from Artiste by Close To My Heart and the speech balloon is from Smiley Cards.  I added some glittery puffies from CTMH and google eyes to embellish the cool little penguin


Stop on over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the penguin projects created by the other Design Team members.  You will be sure to find some inspiration for creating your own artwork.  Then link up your awesome projects to share with everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Have an awesome day and try to make a whole bunch of people smile!  Laurie
