Baby Girl "little angel" Onesie

I love making these little onesies for newborns.  I can personalize them and they are one-of-a-kind creations.   I was lucky to find a lavender onesie and it was perfect for a friend's new little girl.  I used baby pink iron-on vinyl and the Rock Princess cartridge to cut the design.   There are little hearts in the lettering -  they are a little hard to see.   Sometimes I also decorate the backside with a design as well.   This is a 15 minute project from start to finish, selecting the phrase from the 20 or so on this cartridge is the hard part.

BBTB2 Design Team Post: Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone!   This is my post for the BBTB2 Design Team Challenge.  Since Halloween is still a few days away, I am posting a layout I finally completed from last year's pictures.  My granddaughter received a riding horsey for her birthday, so it was only fit she get a cowgirl outfit to go with it.    The title is my favorite aspect of the layout, with the word Halloween, skull, and spider from the Artiste cart.   The October 31st cart was used to accent the title, the spider, tree, haunted house, and scarecrow/pumpkin cuts.    The signs read "Whoa and  lil' Cowpoke" from the Old West cart.   This was a really fun layout to put together.   Enjoy!

BBTB2 - Pumpkin Time Challenge

This week's challenge at BBTB2 is "Pumpkin time".   I love the cuts on Hello Kitty, and so does my 2 year old granddaughter.  She calls her "KI KI", and even has little Hello Kitty earrings, clothes and purses.   This is a layout I made using a similar design that some on the Cricut message board posted a few years ago that I have saved in the "I've got to make that someday" file.   My GD was only 1.5 months old when these pictures were taken.   She was dressed as a banana baby along with mom and daddy, and the other one is with me and we are looking at the pumpkin my son grew.   All cuts were from the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge.   Happy carving!

BBTB2 Design Team - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Welcome back to my blog.  Today's post is my selection for the BBTB http://heather-bittenbythebug2.blogspot.com/ blog.  This is my 2nd week as a designer.  Having fun so far and enjoying the challenge.   Our challenge this week is Awareness Month, and I have selected to make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I have several friends who are cancer survivors, and for the last several years, I always send a card to let them know I remember and love them.   The pink ribbon is from the Pink Journey cart, the lady is from Surburbia, and CCR provided the lettering.  I stamped Think Pink in pinks, and inked the lettering and added brown shadows.  Thanks for looking.

Yes That's Me

This is a 5x7 card that I made as a joke for someone at work.   Yes, that is me when we were camping many years ago.  We had a porcelin pot that we called the 'pee' pot that went on road trips.   I copied the picture and stuck it on a patterned paper that was like a denim pocket.   Hope I made you smile.

BBTB2 - Design Team - Grape Harvest - Leaves

Welcome to my blog.  This is my first post for the BBTB Design Team.  You can see their fantastic blog by clicking here:  http://heather-bittenbythebug2.blogspot.com/.   This week the challenge is the fall maple leaf.  I used a slightly different leaf, making a layout of my granddaughter harvesting grapes from the backyard grape arbor.   The 'fencing' is from the Sophisticated cart, the word grape and grapes/leaves from the Preserves cart, and the word harvest from the Freshly Picked cart.  Everything was inked and layered.   Notice the burlap strip beneath the leaves, I thought it made a nice rustic effect.   On the closeup of the leaves, I am trying to show how I take different colored inks to the leaves to make them look like they are changing colors.  I used browns, oranges, yellows, and greens.
