The Cuttelbug Spot - Challenge 46

Who's ready for school to start??? The Cuttlebug Spot is celebrating education with our projects this week. My son is starting Kindergarten, and as of this week has been accepted to the best place we could ask for him to start his schooling... and his teacher... well she's one of my best friends so it just doesn't get much better! My card is super simple this week due to limited time. The Cutting Cafe has this great "Just A Little Something From Me To You For My Teacher Stamp. 99 cent special and well worth it. I used the Cuttlebug A2 Diamond Plate folder. EK Success border punch ABC123. DCVW paper, misc ribbon and felt shapes.

Play along with us this week and create anything that is school or education themed. We've got a $20 gift certificate sponsored by Custom Crops this week for one creative participant!

Cuttlebug Spot Challenge 45 - HOT

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot our challenge is to use the word HOT in some way on our project. This is a really great challenge for DT inspiration as we all had a blank canvas to start and we all created such different things. Love it!

My stamp is a super cute digi 'More Teddies' stamp from Lily Boo's Boutiques. My sentiment is my 'own' digi stamp, lol. Paper is American Crafts. Cuttlebug folders used: A2 Heart Block and Houndstooth.

Cuttlebug Spot Challenge 43 - Sketch a week late

Last week at The Cuttlebug Spot, Aymee made a great sketch for everyone to play with. I am late putting it to paper but it is so much fun I had to make something for it... one thing I forgot was to emboss something! The one key ingredient... I got crazy with the adhesive and before I knew it I was done, I was happy with my project, and then I realized I didn't add any cuttlebug! Ah well... it's a cutie anyway. Thanks Aymee for the inspiration!

Somethin' else I had fun creating with is The Social Butterfly digi stamp set from The Cutting Cafe! I won this set as well as the Butterfly Backgrounds from Shelly's fabby blog candy a few weeks ago. I've been enjoying playing with them a ton. I just love this set and it came at the perfect time to use on Aymee's sketch! Thank you Shelly!

I used 2 newish totally cute Magnolia stamps in this small 8x8 wall hanging. The Watering Can and Tilda with Butterfly. Paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection. Love this stuff!

This is the Sketch for the challenge

The Cuttlebug Spot - Challenge 44

The Cuttlebug Spot is creating invitations this week~ Invite to what?!?!?! Well anything think you like. We've got a great assortment of ideas for you this week from baby showers, birthdays, Halloween parties to apple pickin! I adore this little house mouse image. We've got transparent apples nearly ready to pick which prompted my card this week. My MIL loves them. I thought an invite to harvest with us would be a great way to get the fun started! I used the Script Texture cuttlebug folder this week. I love this folder especially for a card you know you'll be writing in. Sort of takes the message from beginning to end for me.

We've got a great prize this week sponsored by Oh My Crafts this week! They have tons of great buys happening... awesome prices on cuttlebug folders, cricut carts, exclusives for their site only, even pre-order sales! I am really excited about many of the new cricut cartridges coming out. I pre-ordered 2 weeks ago and they've already shipped! Go get 'em!

The Cuttlebug Spot - Challenge 42

Happy Monday~ Today at The Cuttlebug Spot we're using our favorite new folder. Provo Craft was kind enough to send us some new folders to play with. I am very happy to show you Moroccan Screen today for my little Thinking of You card! I love this folder. I think it could easily be used for any type of card, both feminine or masculine. My stamp image is Tilda Picking Lilacs on K&Co: Amy Butler~Lucky Flowers paper (I adore her fabric... I am in real trouble now that she's makin' paper too!). I sanded the paper lightly to show the white core on Thinking of You.

Enjoy your week! Beeeeee sure to stop by and see all the beautiful DT work this week. You will surely want to play along with us also using YOUR favorite folder... old or new... we have a very special prize for one lucky crafter.
