Cuttlebug Mania - Autumn

Tuesday, 29 October 2013

Autumn is definitely here, cooler, windy and the leaves and acorns are falling. Trust me, cycling on acorns is like cycling on marbles!! So there’s are theme for the next 2 weeks at Cuttlebug Mania. Create a project featuring whatever comes to mind when you think of Autumn. I thought of preserves. I haven’t done anything in a jam jar but I have been freezing a lot. We’ve had loads of tomatoes, beans, chillies and apples this year. I gave some away as we far more than we could eat.


Materials used – White square card blank, Green and red cardstock, Cosmo cricket Garden Variety papers, Toga Confitures stamps, Cuttlebug plus Craft Concepts In Stitches embossing folder plus Fruit and Tags dies, Studio G Mini alphabet stamps, Glossy accents and String.

Time for another colour challenge over at Cuttlebug Mania. It’s black and white which is just a great combination. You can add a touch of colour if you wish, but it must only be a tiny bit. You can make a card for any occasion, birthday or even Halloween. Pop on over so the great project the design team has made.

Cuttlebug Mania – Flying High

Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Can you believe it’s the 1st October already, the leaves are falling, there is Christmas stuff in the shops and I’ve only just got back from my summer holiday!! But on a plus, it’s still actually quite warm, so no heating on yet.

We all love toys and I'm sure we all have a favourite from our childhood. My boys loved Lego, the possibilities are endless with those brilliant little bricks.

The design team at Cuttlebug Mania have been given some lovely digital images to work with this week featuring toys from our sponsor Paper Nest Dolls. I chose the cute Bedtime Ellie complete with her teddy. We’d love you to create a project featuring a toy and our winner will receive a $25 voucher to spend.


Materials used – White square card blank, Grey cardstock, Scrap papers, Cuttlebug plus Swiss Dots embossing folder and Cart-Us scalloped oval die, Assorted Promarkers, Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamps and a Heart punch.
