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!

More Green Inspiration From The DT

Each week we will post more inspiration from our DT. We want to get your creativity flowing. We are still with the Green theme and this is what our DT came up with!
Sentement: Let the relaxation begin, Happy Retirement
Recipe: Cuttlebug embossing folder=Fleur di Lis/ cardstock=Kiwi Kiss, Naturals White(SU!)/ ColorCore Cardstock=Key Lime(Coredinations)/ stamps=Chairs to You(Flourishes) & sentiment(SU!)/ markers=Copic.
Technique: I embossed the ColorCore paper with the Fleur de Lis embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I then sanded the surface to bring out the green core...the more you sand, the more color will show through! I chose this folder because it reminds me of wallpaper and I thought it would look cute with the chair!
Easel Card
Recipe: Leaves cut from a sizzix die, chalked and shaped into a heart. I embossed with one of the Fancy Corners embossing folders.  The owl is a Cricut image that I flocked and added crystal jewels for the eyes.  The tree trunk was embossed with the Distressed Lines embossing folder.  I also added were green crystal jewels, rub on lettering and organza ribbon.
