CRAZY CUTTLEBUG WEEK - DAY ONE

Welcome Monday! I am trying to wake myself up and be cheerful at the same time!! Kel came up with the great idea of pulling out our cuttlebugs and getting busy. Since I haven't used mine in so long I thought great idea!

Kel and I got together Friday night thinking that we would get all the posts done for the week, the theory was great, but it didn't really happen. We spent more time talking and laughing!! We did manage to came up with this cute halloween page. The green scallops are nestabilites.


Here is a close up of the birdcage folder. Love, love this folder. Kelly brought over some great coordinations paper, it is black with an orange core! Perfect for the antique bird cage look. This folder is the 12" border folder. We bought the larger 6x12 plates and we are so glad they did, perfect for this page!



Here is an owl cut at 4" inches from Happy Hauntings, (I love this guy).
Cuttle bug folders used on Mr. Owl were:
Forest branches for the branch
Diamond one for the entire owl
Swiss dots for the belly
(I am sorry, I don't know the "official" names of the folders, I wish they would put them on the folders.)
Don't forget the more comments this week, the better your chances are for the prize!!!

  4. Great idea ladies! I just got my cuttlebug just over a month ago and am still learning it. I damn near cr@$%ed myself the first time it cracked! I'll be watching this closely this week. I need lots of ideas. I finally got some spellbinders and am still learning those. I did however figure out how to run the sizzix textures through! Yay! I like those cause you get alot of patterns for pretty cheap. My middle name.
