My first challenge project for the Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Design Team

I am so excited to be part of this new design team! So much so, that as soon as I found out what the first challenge was, this idea popped into my head and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I jumped right in and got started, and before I knew it, it was done!! I told you I was excited!!! I used Storybook to cut the letters and Doodlecharms to cut the cupcakes and candy. I used the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder on the cupcake frosting and lots of glitter!!! I wanted it all to look "sugar-coated". I took one picture before I put it in the frame because I didn't know what effect the glare on the glass would have. This project is large--8" X 16". I must confess that my dining room looks like the "morning after the Fairyland Ball"!!! I spilled the glitter everywhere and the more I tried to clean it up, the more it scattered!! haha Oh well! A little sparkle never hurt!! And now that she knows, I'll let the "cat out of the bag". I created this project as a thank you gift for our fearless leader, Cheryll, for all her hard work in putting the design team and website together! Thank you, Cheryll!!! Comments appreciated! Thanks for looking! Hugs!

Easter Challenge for Whimsical Scraps and Bugs

Our challenge this time for the Whimsical Scraps and Bugs Design Team was to create something with an Easter theme, using our Cricut and 3-5 jumbo playing cards or flash cards. Being a Christian, Easter has a deep spiritual meaning for me, so that is the theme for my entry. I used 3 jumbo playing cards, Prima flowers, pearls, ribbon and a rhinestone to create this 3-panel Easter card.

Two birthday cards

I had so much fun creating these cards today! My sincere and heartfelt thanks to Lacy Gilbertson for sharing these adorable shoe graphics with me! I LOVE them!! And my thanks to all the awesome, creative people on the Cricut Messageboard. These cards combine elements from the creations of others and I am so grateful for their inspiration! Papers are from the Pastel cardstock stack from DCWV. Cuttlebug embossing folder on the white oval, along with Nestabilities scalloped ovals. Lattice work card created with Design Studio. Flourish is from Home Decor. Prima flowers and iridescent glitter from Michael's. The cards are for two of my granddaughters. Their birthdays are 3 days apart and the party is tonight! Got these done just in the nick of time!!! Thanks for looking. Feel free to leave a comment.
