Time for Warm Winter Clothes!

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

It’s time to start digging out those warm winter hats, gloves, scarves and heavy coats!  Those of you who live in warm climates, will just have to miss this “fun” LOL!!  The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use a Winter Clothes cut on your project.

My son and his family came to Nebraska for Thanksgiving this year and his 11 month old son had never experienced a cold Nebraska wind.  They live in Destin, Florida, so he had to get used to socks, shoes and long pants too!  In this photo, he looks like a fish out of water in his warm winter clothes!

I used the Winter Woodland cartridge for the large stocking cap that I placed in the background and Three Birds on Parade for the title.  The subtle patterns of the Whimsy Fundamentals from Close To My Heart were the perfect papers to use.  It is hard to see in the photo, but the snowflakes and the words are cut from white glitter paper.

I hope you stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to check out the other design team projects.  Then link up your own artwork with Warm Winter Clothes cuts!


Hopping Down the Bunny Trail!

Hello Friends!

Easter is just around the corner, but there is still time to make some Easter projects!  The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to create an Easter themed project.  I made this cute bunny card from the Winter Woodland cartridge and the Hope collection from Authentique.

I absolutely love this paper and its vintage vibe.  I added lots of inking around the papers and Cricut cuts to continue the rustic feel.  For the inside sentiment, I used one of the coordinating elements from the paper collection.

Please join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the other design team projects and then link up your own artwork!  There are so many fun Easter cuts and we can’t wait to see what you make!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!   Laurie
