Calling ALL beginner Cuttlebug Users!

Welcome to the Cuttlebug Blog. We are excited you have stopped by to visit. So relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your stay here. We have decided to dedicate this site to beginners! (Seasoned Veterans welcome too!) As I am a beginner Cuttlebug'er I have looked around other blogs and get kind of discouraged by all the very advanced (and fabulous) designs. So I thought to myself, beginners need a place to feel welcome, make mistakes (as I am sure I will ;) and grow with creativity! So lets join together and Create, Inspire , Teach, Grow!

Stop and Smell the Flowers!

Since no one ever brings me flowers I thought I would make some for myself! It cheer'd me up! I love flowers! They're so pretty!

      Side View!

* Walk in My Garden Cricut Cartridge = Flowers, Stems, Vase
* Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (love language) = Flowers, (textile) = vase
* Ink it up ink (black) = Vase
* Color box chalk (chestnut roan) = Flowers
* doodlebug design inc.(bright assort) = jewels
* Cardstock = bazzill bling (vase), yellow, pink, purple, 3 different greens (stems)
* Puffy adhesive squares
I cut the vase out at 5" then used textile embossing folder and while it was still in folder I used black ink to bring out the design. Note: apply softly, trying to only bring out design
I then cut the flowers and stems ranging from 3" to 1.5" and different colors, then I used love language embossing folder on them, again while still in the folder I used chestnut roan and lightly applied to bring out heart design. I then arranged the flowers how I liked and glued! I used puffy squares to add some depth.
TYFL! Enjoy!
