Hello everyone! It is Monday and guess what? I actually found time to complete my Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge! My sweet Design Team member Emily is hosting this week's challenge. She asked the DT to use the theme of "Happy Campers" or "Camping Critters" to create their projects. I am not much of a camper so I went with the concept of camping and took my project in a different direction. My idea of camping is to camp out at the mall for a sale!
With the wedding and mom's move I have been seriously neglecting a new toy in my scraproom. Today's project was created using my Cricut Explore, which I had to take out of the box for the first time! I used Cricut's Design Space to cut the card, the button strip, the doily, and the tag.
I have a huge learning curve in order to use the Design Space as masterfully as I have used all other of the Cricut softwares. But with time and practice that should come. This project was very easy so I did not have a difficult time.
My shopping lady stamp is a Close To My Heart Hostess Purchase only stamp set, D1608 "Better with a Friend". Anyone who has a gathering can use part of their hostess credit to purchase this $10 stamp set.
I used card stock, my computer, and printer to create the typewriter font sentiment for the front of my card. I used small scissors to trim the word sections, purposefully not straight.
I finished the card with buttons and seam binding ribbon and khaki colored floss.
I hope that you do join us this week at Bitten By the Bug 2 for Emily's Happy Camper challenge. You may go with a traditional camping theme, or like me, take the idea of camping in a different direction. Please be sure to read the submission rules on the side bar at BBTB2.
