Bring On The Bling At The Cuttlebug Spot & Some Big News!!!

Hey guys! Happy Monday to you! I hope your week is getting off to a fabulous start! We are 'bringing on the bling' this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. We are adding all sorts of Stickles, rhinestones, etc. to our projects. For my project this week I wanted to do a bit of double duty...that's always nice, right?!! :) I was recently contacted by my absolute favorite site for SVG's (for use with SCAL), My Scrap Chick, and asked to design with some of their files. Of course I had to say yes! They have just about the most adorable things! It is all really cutesy and I love it! I used their 'Tooth Fairy' (you'll have to scroll down a bit on that link to see the files) set of files to create this little shaped card. I cut out all that you see using my Cricut Expression and SCAL software. As for The Cuttlebug Spot, I used the Swiss Dots and D'Vine Swirl embossing folders. For the bling, I brought in an assortment of rhinestones and Stickles glitter glue. I know it may be a bit off before Carter starts to lose his baby teeth, but as soon as he loses the first one, Aunt Mamie will sent him some money in this little card. Tee Hee! Here it is: (you can click on the pic if you want to make it bigger so you can see better)

Second up, I wanted to do some more projects for 'My Scrap Chick.' So I decided to play with two of their book files, 'Critter Books' and 'Sweet Animal Books'. These can make cute little books, but also double great as shaped cards. Yall know how much I adore shaped cards!!! This first one is the 'lamb' book from the Sweet Animal Book set. I made this card for my Daddy. His 60th bday is on April 15th. I used SCAL and a font called 'Mr. and Mrs. Popsicle' to cut out the phrase I love 'ewe' for the inside. Here is the front:

Here is a view of the back and inside of the book. I used Helmar Zap Dots to pop up some of the features on this card.

Next, I made card for my nephew, Carter. His birthday was April 11 and he turned 5 years old! I can't believe it! This snail is from the 'Critter Books.' I just love both sets of the books that they have. The critters are just the cutest. But I think the snail may be one of my personal faves. I used a Peachy Keen face stamp to stamp the faces on both of these cards. Here is the front of the snail card:
Here is the view of the back of the snail card. I used Colorbox Chalk Inks on the edges of each piece.

I had a lot of fun making these cards. I am in a 'cutesy' type of mood here lately. I am working on another shaped card for another special little boy, but it will have to wait. I need to get it sent off so the recipient can receive it before I post it. But I'll have it up asap.

Next, I wanted to share some exciting news with you. I am now a member of the design team at Scrapstreet!!!! I am so excited and can't wait to work with all of the phenominal artists over there!!!!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope each of you have a fabulous day!!! Take care of yourselves and Happy Scrappin'!!!

Pin It!
