Guest Designing at BBTB2!


Today I'm guest designing at Bitten By the Bug 2!  They have a new challenge beginning today to make a project using a ladybug from any Cricut cartridge!

I thought it would be fun to make a little box of 3 x 3 notecards.  I found an adorable pizza box on the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge and cut it at 5.5".  To decorate it, I used my Elegant Edges cartridge to add a couple of layers.  I adjusted the sizes of them on my Gypsy to 3.25" x 3.33" for the black layer and 2.93" x 3" for the patterned paper layer (from the Simple Stories I {HEART} SUMMER collection).  The sweet little ladybug, from Just Because Cards, is cut at 6.25".  I then added a little brad from I {HEART} SUMMER and a sentiment from My Creative Time's Chunky Jar Accessories, stamped on a die from MCT's Chocolate Greetings.


Inside the box are several little 3 x 3 notecards and envelopes.  I used more of the paper from I {HEART} SUMMER and did a little machine stitching to make a border.  Then I added the same ladybug that is on the outside of the box, but this time it was cut at 5.75".


Each little notecard has a different sentiment from MCT's Small Talk stamp set.  This will be a fun little end of the school year gift for one of my coworkers.

Be sure to head on over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to join in the fun!
