Cuttlebug Challenge Sweet for my Sweet

Welcome to the second stop on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Luv bug weekend Sweet for my Sweet Challenge. I kept my project short & sweet,LOL, which means you could easily make these for your kids classrooms, teacher gifts, your own kids, etc.

Here is my project, complete with instructions, just in case you want to make one for your sweetheart :)

1. Take a piece of 5 ½ by 4 1/8 inch piece of pattern paper and fold in half. I used a piece of red with polka dots from Scrappin’ Sports & More new Game Day line.
2. Using the Valentine Sizzix folder, run one end and then the other through the Cuttlebug to emboss. Make sure that you can read the word Valentine from both sides.
3. Lightly sand the embossed design for more depth.
4. Using the 2-step heart #1 Cuttlebug Dies, cut the solid heart from red Prism cardstock and the outline heart from white Prism cardstock. Ink the outline heart with ColorBox warm red chalk ink from Clearsnap, Inc. Adhere to the upper right hand side of the tag.
5. Using the Alpha Typewriter Cuttlebug Dies, cut out the words BE MY using black Prism cardstock. Adhere just above the word Valentine, overlapping the hearts.
6. Using Glossy Accents by Ranger Inc., add 4 white rhinestones to the ends of each swirl.
7. Take a 4” by 5” clear bag to hold the candies, or in this case chocolate covered pretzels. I used a bag that was over some self-adhesive woven labels from Colorbox; it’s a great way to go green!
8. Using a strong tape adhesive, I used the permanent adhesive from Tombo, adhere the tag top to the bag of sweets.

Cuttlebug Challenge #15

This was my first week to participate in the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog as a DT member. We were given this wonderful Page Map card sketch by Becky Fleck. For this card I used the Cuttlebug circles, the Cuttlebug flower and the Harmony font dies. I also created a second card using the same wonderfule Becky Fleck sketch and some Scrappin' Sports & More papers along with the Red Tag Sale Cuttlebug Alphabet. TFL To see what the rest of the Amazing DT came up with, visit the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog.

It was announced today that I am going to be a Design Team member on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. I mean who doesn't like to work with Cuttlebug Products. My favorite has got to be the Red Tag Sale alphabet. I use this on nearly every layout I create these days. The Cuttlebug Challenge blog will have weekly challenges and some fun DT challenges, tutorials...with changes to win some prizes. So stop on by....what are you waiting for??

On another note...above are a couple of layouts I created with the new Game Day release from Scrappin' Sports & More. These papers are being released at CHA and shipping next month. Don't you love the dots??? Each page has a different color and the line mixes and matches perfectly. It also matches Prism cardstock. Woo favorite.

You guessed it...more SS&M

Today I picked up the new paper from Scrappin' Sports & More. WOW...the new Game Day line is wonderful. I can't wait to start playing. The backs are so versatile, I mean who doesn't like polka dots!! Anyway, here are a couple of layouts I finished over the weekend. I realized after completing Maddy's page at the Little Red Schoolhouse, that I still need to do pages for Victoria and Alex when they went! Add it to my never ending list of projects :) Okay...gotta get started on the new lines :)

Sports on Fire!!!

I was able to create a couple more pages using the new Sports on Fire line from Scrappin' Sports & More...these papers should be printing soon for release at CHA Winter show in Anaheim. Speaking of the show....I AM GOING!!! Woo Hoo....I have never been west of Dallas, so I am very excited to make it all the way out West. I will be there for 5 nights, hopefully Mark survives at home. LOL

Okay, back to Sports on Fire, these papers were just test paper so the official ones will be a little different. First of all, they won't have the glossy finish and second they will be 2-sided with the words written in the fire color on the back. We are hoping to get these this week to design with. We are also getting the new is my favorite!! Can't wait to get my hands on it.
