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!

Last of the MOMs Inspiration!

Happy Monday Morning to you all! Today will be the last post for our MOMs inspiration.  Donna, Lynne, Suzann, Michelle and I have had a fabulous time this month being inspired by our MOMs! Moms tend to be the one person that you can ALWAYS count on to be there for you and we hope that we did all moms proud with a whole month of projects dedicated to them! So for every Cuttlebug'er mom we say ROCK ON! There is only ONE "official" day for moms... but EVERYDAY should be moms day! 

RECIPE: Cuttlebug embossing folder= Bloom Dots (Blue Border), Textile & Swiss Dots (Flowers)/ patterned paper= Bo Bunny (Flutter)/ ribbon= Making Memories/ stamp= SU!
TECHNIQUE: I embossed the blue border and rubbed a tan ink pad over the surface to highlight the raised image. I embossed the small brown flowers with the Swiss Dots folder and the larger tan flowers with the Textile folder, then assembled them with brads.

NOTE: Due to one of our readers requests I am going to try to include instructions for our designs. If you are still in question about how we did something hop over to the designers personal blog listed on the left.

Sabrina (cricut blog)
Cuttlebug embossing folder: Textile
Cricut Cartridges:  Home Accents(flowers- welded in DS, Download courtesy of Nanne Harry- Thanx Nanne!) Home Decor, Opposites Attract, George (used DS to weld mom and accents from these carts)
Paper: Bazzill canvas (background), Bazzill basic (purple, tan, green), not sure where the pattern paper came from???? sorry!
Ink: color box (flowers)
Martha Stewart punch

NOTE: Next weekend is a Holiday weekend so our DT will be off for a much needed break! So we will not post inspirations next monday... However our regular schedule should not be affected by the Holiday!

Thanx everyone for comming by and supporting our fun little blog. Each of the Design Team loves to hop around and see what you have made to share with us... Just  a reminder there is only 6 days left to enter this months challenge (ALL ABOUT MOMS) so click here and enter your project!
