Here are my letters using various cartridges for the banner swap I am in..I joined the Father's Day (letter A), Mother's Day (letter A with flower), Memorial Day (letter E) and Happy 4th of July (letter P)....
The patterned paper/cardstock is Bo Bunny (provided to me by www.crazyscraps.com our awesome sponsor..check them out..they have daily deals which are SUPER!!)
I am usually the one taking the photos I excited to do a layout with my kids and I! They are truly my whole world..I am so thankful that I was blessed with these two! They make being a mom so much fun and easy! I am very lucky!
I added a new picture of what one lucky winner will receive this month from the Cuttlebug Blog! If you click on the picture, it will take you to the blog then just click on the current challenge and join us! They are fun challenges and are a great way to get out your cuttlebug and use it! May's theme is All About Mom!
Sam decided to close down the Cricutters Anonymous..(Just Buggin Challenges).. It was nice to challenge myself with the challenges every week and I will miss that..if anyone knows of any good challenge sites, please let me know!! Sometimes it seems the only way I get some crafting done is to be doing for the design teams I am on LOL! And now I am only on one DT! Looking forward to maybe getting on another..any one need a design team member?? LOL!
The theme is still Mother's Day!! This is my first project for May for the Cuttlebug Blog! We do a challenge for the first of each month then we do 2 projects for the same theme! So in a couple weeks I will have my 2nd project up!
Don't forget to join us every month over at http://www.cuttlebugblog.blogspot.com/ There is always a great goodie package given away to one lucky person! In just a few days, we will be announcing the winner of the EXPRESSIONS over there!
For this card I used and did the following: Flocked paper (my friend Mary bought me this a long time ago and I am still using it!! Thanks Mary) White velvet lace ribbon (it stretches..LOL..I need to fix the top I see when looking at my card) White ink rubbed over the top of the embossed black paper (which was cut with the cricut) Swiss Dots embossing folder Silver Leafing pen around the edges of the embossed paper
Now the fun part: The butterflies!! I stamped them on a transperancy then on the one that has purple I used stickles (wanted to see what they would like with using stickles) then the other butterfly I used the glitter glue and glitter I bought at the stamping show...I actually bought the glue 2 years ago at the first stamp show I went to and then couldn't remember what to use and how to do it (which it is soooo simple LOL) so this year when we went back I watched and learned again so now I did it! LOL)
While I think they both work..I think the glitter and glue covered my image much better!
May is here..time for a new challenge at the Cuttlebug Blog!! So for the challenge, we were given the Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder and some Bo Bunny paper to use (www.Crazyscraps.com is our sponsor..check them out!)
I decided I really wanted to try to make an Easel card and this is my first attempt at one! What do you think? I watched the tutorial on a different site to learn how to make them..they are pretty easy LOL!!
I used my CB butterflies embossing die/folder for the butterflies and added some pearls/rhinestones to them! I had some MM alpha stickers in my stash so I used those and this will be my card for my Mom! I hope she likes it!!
