It's Elvis' Birthday Week at BBTB2

This week we are celebrating Elvis Presley's birthday at BBTB2 by creating projects that somehow relate to the "King". 


I made this card with a "hound dog" from Four Legged Friends and added the hair from Photo Booth Props and the crown from Royalty.

It's a "New" year at BBTB2

Happy New Year! Maureen chose the very apropos theme of something "new" for the first challenge of 2017 at BBTB2. My "new" is this resolution that I found on Pinterest. It's actually going into my classroom as a reminder to my students, especially the seniors, to stay on track this quarter. The third quarter is always the hardest for them.


The entire card, with the exception of the scalloped circle, is made from basic shapes. The scalloped circle is from Wild Card. The font is Dear John. I hope everyone's year is off to a great start!

Nativity or Menorah at BBTB2

DT sister Susan asked us to make a Menorah or Nativity project this week at BBTB2. Here is my Menorah card, it's almost the same as hers (hers is prettier), weird huh? 


I used elements from the Family Album image set to create the card. It's supposed to be a scrapbook layout but I resized some of the elements and removed others. Here is a link to the DS file if you would like it. Everything is in the subscription so you should be able to cut it if you have that.

I have very little Christmas shopping done and nothing mailed. Everyone is going to be out of town so they'll get it when they get back. We have to go to school through Wednesday and it has thrown off my normally late timeline. Now it's just ridiculous! I hope everyone has a peaceful holiday season.

Christmas Wording at BBTB2

This week at BBTB2 our DT sister, Caroline, chose Christmas wording as the theme.  I made this free box from Dreaming Tree and added the "Happy Holiday's" ornament from the Merry and Bright Cricut image set. 


The box was really easy to create and is a pretty good size. It's about 4.5" tall so it could probably hold a candle or a demitasse cup (or of course candy) fairly easily. It's getting crazy busy in my world with Christmas and basketball season so I may be hit or miss for a while. I hope everyone enjoys the Holidays!

 I used this cute, free files from Digiplayground to create a few little nifty gifties for the Christmas season. They whip up pretty quickly and are adorable when they are done.


They hold exactly 6 Andes mints perfectly and will be great little "thinking of you" presents without going over the top. The paper is all Recollections and the image is from the Teresa Collins "Deck the Halls" Cricut image set.

Twist and pop card

I made this card for a challenge on Koala T Crafts FB page. It's a fun group if you're interested. Jen Evers (Koala T. Crafts) has a video here if you are interested in what makes it twist and pop. It may need some embellishments on the front.


The front is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. The sentiment and the coffee cup on the inside are from Unity Stamps. I've really been enjoying them lately. I left the spot on the right open for writing or another sentiment stamp.


I created a Cricut file for the mechanism piece that makes the twist. Here is the link.

They are fun to make and I may try to whip up one or two more before Christmas.

Here is my project:


I used gold and orange vinyl on a deep red charger for my project today. It's from the Intricate Seasonal Art image set. The bow is made from some ribbon I had in my stash. It looks better in person. You can see the red woven into the gold more.
