BBTB2: Cricut - Spring Fling - The roses are blooming

Our hostess for the week is the talented Caroline, from Card Creations b y Caroline, and she wants us to show our spring colors and use any Cricut cut with spring flowers - daffodils, tulips, roses, anything in bloom.  Link up your card or project to our Linky at Bitten By the Bug2.    I used roses, since they are in bloom in my yard right now.  I have about 10 rose bushes in various colors in my yard, they do really well here.

I used my Cricut for both of my cards today, the roses are from Spring Fling, and the overlay for both cards is from Antiquities Cards.  My butterfly was created with paper made on my Gelli plate, and then die cut from a Stampin' Up die belonging to a friend.  I added Stickles as dots on the lattice for a little sparkle.

BBTB2: Cricut: Candyland game, so Much Fun!

I used the Family Album cartridge and altered the gameboard to make it similar to the Candyland game.   I added color to the gameboard, changed the banner to say Candyland, and added icons simular to what the board has.  This was a really fun layout to make, and the picture was great too.    I taught my granddaughter to play the game using the same game board that her mother played on.  Notice the tape holding the cover together, yep, it's 30+ years old.

Join our "Sweet" challenge at Bitten By The Bug2, our hostess is Valentya, from "" and link up your sweet cards and projects to our Blinky.   Have a sweet week sugar!

BBTB2: Cricut Easter is for Chocolate Bunnies

Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy Day!

Doesn't it feel great to see all the kids about, the nicer weather, and longer days?  I know I come alive when Daylight Savings time starts.  I made 3 layouts this week, and worked on my scrappy quilt -  that's pretty good for me.  Oh - and I cleaned a bit of my craftroom - that doesn't happen often enough, and worked pulling weeds in the yard.

This week at Bitten By the Bug2 our challenge by Susan, from Busy with the Cricky, is to use an Easter related cut on your project or card.   Submit your entry to our Linky page and enjoy all the posts from our designers and followers.

I made a traditional layout this week, making it a little fancy by adding lots of bling (gems, washi, and flowers) that I got from Queen and Co. at the Scrapbook Expo.   I inked most of the cuts, used a Cuttlebug folder on the basket, along with adding the lamb medallion on the front.  Little gems look like eggs in the grass.   I probably will insert pictures of the grandkids hunting eggs.     Enjoy - Maureen

My cuts are as follows:

Chocolate bunny - Create a Critter 2
Chick - Easter
Basket and eggs  - Doodlecharms
Title of Happy Easter - Miss Kates Cuttables
Grass - Artbooking

BBTB2: Cricut, Hiking Donner Summit

It's Arbor Day at Bitten By The Bug2.  Kelly from Kelly's Concoctions is our hostess this week.    Use a tree cut cut from anything Cricut and submit it to our Linky page.

Here is my take on trees.  This is a layout of my son on a hike we took last summer. That's Donner Lake in the background.  We were hiking the Mt. Judah trail on Donnet Summit. It was a gorgeous day, a 6 mile hike, and spent with family.  Who could ask for more?

Cartridges used:
Rocks:  Dino Play
Tree limb:  Christmas
Great Outdoors:  Artbooking
Circle:   Free image
Canteen:   Outdoor Man
Trees:  Frozen

Come join and celebrate our Arbor Day challenge at BBTB2 this week by linking up your card or project.
