spring hopping with the bug! & a truffle too!

blog tag


who is ready for spring???  me FOR SURE!!  and so is the rest of the Just Buggin design team so we decided to hop right into spring with a spring themed blog hop!

i bet y’all had no idea i could get that corny did ya???  hahhahaha!

if you are hopping with us you should have arrived here via >>Samantha<< and her wonderful project.  if you stumbled onto the path by accident then you will definitely want to go start at the beginning on the Just Buggin Challenge Blog and see what the girls have come up with – GREAT stuff!!  PLUS some of them are giving away blog candy too!!!!!!!  and the prize on the JB blog is a guest designer spot!!

As for me i just couldn’t resist playing with my 12 x 24 patterned pad and creating another gift bag!
i cut the gift bag/purse using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cartridge at 8.5″.  the large pad is a vailable at michaels.  it is somewhat different than the usual cardstock we all love to use – a glossy finish and somewhat thinner thn i prefer – but it works very well for large projects like this.  When you first peel it off the mat you have to be careful not to rip it and it rolls up quite a bit.  but once i put my project together it is perfectly fine and really quite sturdy!
the dragonflies on the front are the cutouts from a Pagoda Cartridge card i did (yes the one you got  sneak peak of yesterday after it had been “re-styled in the Pezza way” – her words not mine)  I covered the wings in lime green and fruit punch stickles and then ran yellow liquid pearls down the bodies.  i lined the front of the bag with grss green glittered skittles (of course – my fave embellie), stuffed in some tissue paper and tied it close with theis crazy polka dot glittered ribbon i ran across in michaels.  a really fun way to pack up a gift dontcha think???
This will be up on my etsy shop too!
i am thrilled you could join us for the hop and hope you enjoyed seeing all the fun stuff you can do with your cricut!
better blog siggy
