BBTB2 Challenge - Birds of a Feather

Hi all!

I hope y'all had a wonderful Father's Day yesterday!

Our new challenge is up on Bitten By the Bug 2 - Birds of a Feather - you must use a bird cut on your project.  I had these silly pictures of Pezza attempting to fly when she young and thought they would be perfect for this challenge:

I love this new patterned paper I got recently from Scrapbook Generation and thought the bright colors went really well with Pezza's bright outfit in the pics.  I have loved all of my Cricut machines but I have to say I love my Explore the most because I can use cartridges OR outside images - I designed my title using a regular font and put a shadow layer with it in Make the Cut then imported it into Design Space - love love love that I can do that.

My little bird is from the Cindy Loo cartridge - I just love the images on that one!  My good old glittered skittles finish off my flower centers perfectly.

The sketch I used had this little tag embellishment up top and I found this perfect little bird tag from Picturesque.

Head over to the BBTB2 blog to see the wonderful projects created by the other design team members.  Then make a project of your own and post it to the blog for us to see!

BBTB2 Challenge - Summer

Hi all!

We spent a fun weekend at the camping and watching races - it was historic sports car racing (or something like that...)  Anyway, hubby really wanted to come see it so we headed for the very most southern part of VA for a few days.  Pezza LOVED it - I mean loved it.  Luckily it wasn't too hot so she was able to enjoy the cars.  She spent alot of time watching the racing but she also spent a lot of time walking around getting to know the drivers and sitting in all their cars! LOL.

This week we have another great challenge for you on Bitten By the Bug 2 - Summer!  With 1 more week of school left for us we are definitely gearing up for summer fun at my house!

In my overwhelming effort to catch up on my scrapping I pulled out some pictures of Pezza and hubby swimming with dolphins we went on a cruise several years ago.  The left page uses a sketch I found on Pinterest which I can't

I used quite a few different cartridges for this one - Disney Pixar - Best of Pixar, Seashells, Kate's ABCs, Splish Splash, Sweet Treats, Life Is A Beach, Fabulous Finds.

This is a based loosely on a Paper Play card sketch I found on Pinterest and I had these perfect little shell stamps from a CTMH stamp set I got 100 years ago and never used.  I really need to get my stamps out more often!

This cut is actually a card but I just cut off the back half and then put a piece of aqua paper behind it.

This was another Paper Play card sketch I found on Pinterest to incorporate - I find grid style scrapping so satisfying because I can break it down into separate fun little projects.

STILL love using my glittered Pez-a-bling from my online stamp store days as little accents!

I hope you can join us in our challenge this week!  Be sure to check out the other DT projects on the BBTB2 blog and then link up a project of your own!

I was inspired by the following challenges:
