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!

Here is my project:

 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.

I know it's beginning to be really hectic in most people's lives at this point, but take a quick break and play along with this fun challenge! Have a happy holiday season!

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.

Flourishes at BBTB2

It's a week full of flourishes at Bitten by the Bug 2. My card is quick and simple, it's been a crazy week. This is for a friend who is coming back to work after her sister passed away this week.


The patterned paper is cut from the Tie the Knot image set. I welded a sentiment from Cake Basics and a flourish from Wall Decor and More to get the sentiment.

I will be taking a bit of a break from BBTB2. I will participate occasionally for the next few weeks, but it's a crazy time at school and I am having a hard time keeping up with everything. Hopefully I'll be back full time fairly soon.

Football at BBTB2

I got to choose the challenge this week at BBTB2 and I picked "football" (whatever that means to you). For some people it will be American football, for others it may mean soccer. 
Things have still been crazy here with the aftermath of hurricane Matthew and the end of the first quarter of school so I made a quick card for my project.


I chose images from Sports Mania for the front of the card and Phrases for the card base. I did some slicing to create the dark brown piece to match the front of the card. It's embossed with a Tim Holtz textured impression folder. The paper is not all Recollections for a change. There is some Bazzill thrown in the mix this time.

Come join us with a "your idea of fooball" project.

It's Halloween at BBTB2

DT sister, Laurie, chose Halloween for the theme this week at BBTB2. I love making things for Halloween but it has been a crazy couple of weeks and I didn't get this done till the last minute (again). It still turned out pretty cute.



I used images from the Creepy Critters, Gothic Graveyard and Mother's Day Bouquet image sets. It's an odd combination, but they still worked well for what I wanted. The ghost is attached to the coffin top with a piece of acetate. The leaves worked nicely to hide the bottom that was glued on. Mr. Ghost is double sided and grinning at you from either direction. I think I may put this on my desk at work with some Halloween treats inside.

Have a great week and join us for some spooky fun!
