  LoveBug Creations- Love my friends

Hello Lovebugs!!
 
http://www.lovebugcreations.net/

 
 
It's my day with another new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 

Just another gorgeous layout to share designed by Miss Suzy West. I created this when I attended another one of her classes. I took advantage of the tag we used and thought it needed some rumple ribbon on it to give it that finishing touch.
 



I have the perfect pic of me and some of my friends for this layout!! I just love all the yummy flowers and this paper line "Coffee Break" by Prima. And my pink Rumple Ribbon is the icing on the cake!
I love it! Hope you do too!! 

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  LoveBug Creations- Thinking of You

Pin It

Hello Lovebugs!!

http://www.lovebugcreations.net/

It's my day with another new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 
 
I have this crazy card template called a Zig Zag Pop in and Out Card Template made by Let's Party Hearty. I won it a few years ago at the Expo. I have tried on several occasions to figure this thing out.
Well today is your lucky day! LOL!
I think I did this right. And if I didn't you will never know. Ha!
Here's my Thinking of You card.
 

 This is the front view with the card closed.
 
This view shows the card starting to open as you pull  the front to the right.
 
And here is the card opened up completely. You would add your personal message on the back panel which is actually the left side.
 
This was my first attempt at this card and I think it's pretty cool. My 13 year old thought so too. So in my book if a teenager likes it then that is good enough for me!! Hope you liked it too.

 
 This card features lots of gorgeous Simply Red Rumple Ribbon from LoveBug Creations.
 
Other products used:
My Mind's Eye Paper and Diecuts
Buttons
Black ink ctmh
Tim holtz tiny attacher
Stick and pop dots 

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Kiwi Lane- Altered Notebook with Mon Abi Gabby

Pin It
here's the badge.  Sorry I had my hubby Aaron e-mail it to you earlier so it might have showed in your junk mail.  Can you pull it from here?

Hello friends!! Connie here again and I'm so excited! Time for me to share my love of Kiwi Lane products with you all. I hope I can inspire you to create fun projects using the templates we all love so much.
 
This month we had the opportunity to work with some amazing embellishments from Mon Abi Gabby. I have never seen so much yummy gorgeousness in one package!
I decided the best way to show it all off would be to alter something. Today, I altered a beautiful journal that brings together Kiwi Lane Designer Templates and Mon Abi Gabby embellishments.

 

I used some paper I had on hand that I absolutely love by Marcella K. I also had a few matching butterfly diecuts. These would work perfectly with the designer templates I wanted to use. My covers consist of Kiwi Lane's Large Bracket and Scallop 2A/2B. I also used Playtime 3, Playtime 4, and Celebrate 3T.

 


This gorgeous dragonfly was created with my Kiwi Lane Template Playtime 4. I added some wire for his antennae and some sparkly fluff flocking to his body. Achieving the two colored look is really easy. Just follow my instructions below.

I wanted to use as many Mon Ami Gabby embellies as possible without making my project overcrowded. On the side of the book near the binding I used the Burlap Trim and added my Kiwi Lane Scallop next to it. The Mon Ami Lace trim matched up perfectly with the scallops. I was so excited!



I also used Mon Ami Gabby teal buttons. Instead of floss they are  tied with Mon Ami Gabby twine. The buttons match perfectly with the Mon Ami Gabby Teal Canvas that I used as part of my background paper for this journal. My favorite item on this project has to be the dangling dragonfly charm. It ties my whole project together so well and gives just the right amount of bling. I used Kiwi Lane template Celebrate 3T and added a CTMH stamp that reads "Here's the Story". How perfect for a journal!


Of course I decorated the back very similarly. I wanted it to be able to lay flat so I didn't add as many 3D embellies as on the front. That gave me the perfect chance to use Playtime template 3, the fun arrow, in the cute polka dot paper to help fill in some space. I just love it!
 
 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!
