Woodsy Christmas Ornaments Card




Hello everyone.  With less than two weeks until Christmas, the Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team is offering you some last minute Christmas ornament crafting inspiration this week.  Our wonderful DT sister, Maureeen, challenged the DT to use a Cricut Christmas ornament (bauble for your Brits), or to use Cricut Cuts to make an ornament!  

I have been spending time with my Cricut Explore lately so I created a Christmas card using two Cricut cartridges and an SVG cut.  I used Cricut's Winter Frolic for the tree limb, Cricut's The First Few Years cartridge for the labels, and Miss Kate's Cutables for the ornaments (Ornaments with Flourish). 




I wanted my card to have a festive yet woodsy feel to it.  I used green prints, herringbone prints and dark greens and browns to achieve the woodsy feel.  And for the festive element, I used bright solids to create my ornaments.  I finished the card with doodles and a Close To My Heart sentiment stamp.  


I know this is a busy time of year, but try to take a bit of time and join our Cricut Challenge this week.  Drop by Bitten By The Bug 2 where Maureen introduces this week's challenge.  Check the rules on our sidebar, then join us in this week's challenge by linking your project under this week's post.  


I know the Close To My Heart Rolling Tote sold out quickly last week.  We are expecting another shipment this week so do check my CTMH on-line store daily this week!

Thanks for dropping by today!!

Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder 2


Hello everyone, I am back today with another gift card holder.   Actually this stocking is going to be a "ticket" holder.  My younger son asked for concert tickets as part of his Christmas.  We ordered the tickets through Ticketmaster and they arrived this week.  I wanted to something other than just stick them in his stocking and that's when I came up with idea to use the "gift card holder".

This card holder was made exactly the same as the one two days ago (See this post).  The holders are super easy to make and very cute under the tree!



What is the most practical and stylish way to transport your crafting supplies to all of your crops?

Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder



Hello everyone.  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at my house.  The tree is up, the Santas and Nutcrackers are out, and the festive lights are hung.  I am to the point of wrapping gifts, which brings me to this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 post - A Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder!

It is my week to select the Cricut challenge cut at BBTB2 and I chose a Christmas Stocking.  I asked the Design Team to use a stocking on any type of project, and you are invited to join us in this challenge.  





I used two cartridges in Cricut Design Space to create my Gift Card Holder stocking, Christmas Kitsch for the Snowman and the sentiment, and Teresa Collins Dec 25 for the stocking.  I cut the stocking elements twice, once in mirror view, so that I could glue the two stockings together back to back to create an open area in the middle in which to insert my gift card.




I crafted a "present" shaped gift card holder where the card is held with a glue dot between the two layers.  The gift card then slides into the top of the stocking.  

I wanted to give you a close up view of the snowman and some of the stocking details in the photo below.  I am was really please with how this holder came out!



Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to go by the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog and check out all of the inspiration the Design Team has for you.  Then read the challenge rules on our sidebar and link your stocking project to the post for a chance to win the Project of the Week button for your blog!
