  LoveBug Creations- Charmed

Pin It
Hello Lovebugs!!

here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 

www.lovebugcreations3.blogspot.com
 
I dabble in all areas of crafting. How could I not? There are so many cool things out there to be made! Once upon a time when Provo Craft came out with the Gypsy I designed some really cute Gypsy Stylus Charms that you could attach to the end of your Gypsy Stylus. Not only did it look cute but it helped you to fine those tiny little Stylus pens when they where laying on your scrap area intermixed with everything else. They were a huge hit!
 
 
I just created several more to list. Turns out people love them as key chains too! Who knew?
While creating this one I had the idea to add a lovely Simply Red Rumple Ribbon bow. How gorgeous is this now? Love the endless possibilities rumple ribbon has.

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- Tucker's Treats

Pin It
Hello Lovebugs!!

here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 
www.lovebugcreations3.blogspot.com
 I love vinyl and am always looking for new things to decorate. My kids love to give Tucker treats, however they are really bad at closing the seal on the bag so the treats become stale. It's a huge bummer! Until now! I found this container and the treats fill it up. It's so cute too because Tucker knows they are in there.
I added some personalization in vinyl to this container and couldn't help adding some LoveBug Creations Camo Fun Footz Rumple Ribbon. You can't get the Fun Footz anymore but there are a ton of fabulous colors to choose from that would look amazing on this project as well.

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!

 I am super lucky to have three amazing MEN in my life!!
 My husband is a great DAD and my boys are lucky to have him in their lives!
I am pretty lucky too! 
My Dad is just the sweetest and cutest Dad ever and I love and miss him so much.
Florida is just too far away!
And then my Father in-law, Jim. A girl could not ask for a better In Law.
He is charming and so fun to be around. I really am blessed.
 
 
I decided to toy around with some cool mugs I purchased a while ago at Dollar Tree. I love that they are Ball Jar Mugs. They remind me of the beer mug my dad had when I was little. He always kept it in the freezer so his beer would be nice and cold.
 
 
Using my Silhouette Cameo and a file I found on the Internet I was able to Trace and Cut these Images of the Duck Dynasty Characters on to the glasses. The heavy duty silver vinyl should last a really long time because it is the outdoor strength and made for all temps.
 
 
 Who can resist Phil Robertson with his Happy Happy Happy? And of course Uncle Si? He cracks me up! Hey Listen here Jack! It's Father's Day!! So have a great one!
 
 
LoveBugs Creations Rumple Ribbon adds the finishing touch!!
Whether our dads add beer or sweet tea to these mugs I am sure they will bring laughs and smiles to their faces! Hope you enjoyed them too.
Want your own? I may be adding these to my Etsy store.
Thanks so much for hopping along with me today!!


 Up next is my awesome friend Alicia!
Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:

 

Thanks so much for joining us! Happy Father's Day to all the Men in our lives!!

Hello Divas!!
http://diecuttindivas.blogspot.com/

 
Time for a new challenge and a new post from us at the Die Cuttin' Divas Design Team!!

Ch#168: Sketch Week
Create a card or layout using this awesome sketch:
 

I love this sketch and had so many ideas pop through my head. But this one did it for me!!

Been meaning to make a get well card for sometime and this paper was perfect!

 

 I also used my Dr. Check Up Cartridge for the first time. I adore this broken heart with a bandaid.
And LBC Mama's Mesh makes that bandaid look so real!!! LOVE it!
I guess this could be used for a heartache card too. In either case it is sure to make someone smile.
 

Items used to create my project:

Cardstock
Patterned Paper by Adorn-It
Sequins
Mama's Mesh in Simply White
Dr. Check Up cart
