Spartan Tailgating

Hello friends!  Happy Labor Day and welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut challenge.  This week's challenge is hosted by my wonderful design team sister, Amy.  And appropriately our challenge for the first unofficial week of fall is FOOTBALL!  

Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I am a Michigan State Spartan! When it comes to football, my first choice is always MSU Spartans. And combine MSU football with tailgating and you have a recipe for an afternoon of fun!

I created this tailgate invitation using two Cricut cartridges in Design Space:  You Are Here and Autumn Celebrations. Remember how I keep telling you that YOU ARE HERE is more than just travel???  The stadium and football were cut using You Are Here.  Of course I added the S for State and the MSU.  The "Let's Tailgate" cut is from Autumn Celebrations. I love how the Let's Tailgate cut works wonderfully with the stadium.

My design team sisters have created really cute Football projects this week. I hope that you go by the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog and check out their projects, then leave some love on their blogs.  We would love for you to join our challenge this week.  Show us your Cricut Football projects!! 


The exclusive From the Heart card kit gives you all the materials you need for creating 12 interactive cards, including an E-size stamp set with heartfelt sentiments and stamps you can layer together for exquisitely artistic cards. Available only during September, this card kit is a must have that will help you create elevated artwork from the heart.
The From the Heart card kit can be yours for FREE when you become a Consultant in September or when you host a qualifying party.

The September Stamp of the Month, FEEL SO BLESSED, is a super-fun and super-versatile stamp set.  You can see samples projects created featuring FEEL SO BLESSED in the two photos below.

On September 1st our Holiday Expressions Catalog went live on my online store. I am very excited about new products in this catalog.  I ADORE the new fall paper (used in the two project photos above), as well as our Halloween and Christmas products.  You can view the catalog HERE
