Just Buggin Spring into Spring Challenge

I used my New Arrival cartridge for the butterfly and flowers and my storybook for all the lettering to create this adorable birthday bucket. I embossed the flowers and butterfly and then pasted a couple play-doh's to the center of a few to go along with the play-doh gift I got her, which is wrapped in the middle. Very springy and I think she is going to love it!

Final Valentine's projects

I forgot to post these before Valentine's Day but here are two more projects I did. The candy shake was a centerpiece on my island and the card was for my secret sister to go along with her gift. I had a lot of fun making both! I found both ideas on the web when I googled for images, changed it up a bit to give it more of my personality. When I find the website where I got it, I will link to the owner, they did a great job coming up with such cute ideas.

Just Buggin Black and White Challenge

This was a toughy for me because I really love color. I didn't want a background that was too busy so I went with plain black, I did want my couple to stand out so I inked around the edges and inked a little bit on the actual dress. I wanted the vail to stand out and the "love". I actually really like the way it ended up looking! I used Potpourri cartridge for the bride and groom and Beyond Birthdays for the "Love". I have a wedding to go to in a couple weeks so this will be perfect!

Candy Bouquets

Last year on our Anniversary, I ordered my husband a candy bouquet to be delivered to him at work. It was cute but with shipping cost me $50! After I saw it, I knew I could duplicate it. I made one for my husband for valentine's day(going to surprise him tonight with it) and I made one for my dad from my boys! I used my CDS and welded the letters together to make the "love u Grandpa" They turned out very cute and I spent less than $12 a piece on them. Let me know what you think! I am thinking about making more and selling them, thoughts??

"Berry Sweet" Valentine treats

I was surfing the web trying to find some cute valentine ideas for my 2 year olds valentine party. I came across this lady's site and she had these adorable strawberries. I made them my own creation by embossing the strawberry and leaves to give more texture and put my own little sentiment on them. They turned out so cute and make adorable candy holders. Everyone loved them!

Just Buggin" 3D Challenge

Well, it's Wednesday and that means another Just Buggin' Challenge. I always look forward to these.

Challenge #24 is to make something in 3D and use at least one cricut cartridge. I decided on this little gift bag that would be perfect to hold a gift card! I Love it! I used Beyond Birthdays for the "love" and I used Plantin Schoolbook for the heart which I welded together on CDS.
I hope you like it!

Just Buggin' Love ya Challenge

This weeks challenge is to do something with a Valentine's Day theme. On this card I used Wild Card for the card shape, Potpourri for the lips, and Cuttin Up for the "Kiss me". This card was so much fun to make. If I get my other project finished that I am working on, I will add it into the contest also. Thanks for the Top 3 pick on last weeks challenge!!!
