Bag IT and Tag IT!

My project this is week is doing double duty for both of the challenge blogs I design for. At The Cuttlebug Spot it is tag week and at Practical Scrappers it is time to use up those flowers.

I created this gift bag for my darling daughter Delaney, who will turn 4 on June 28th. She's having a princess birthday party and this is for the gift that her brothers got her, which she is just going to love-- more silly bands! The pattern for this bag comes from My Scrap Chick in there newer collection of bigger bags! It was a must buy for me!!

The Cuttlebug Spot-- It's LO Week!!

Over at The Cuttlebug Spot this week we are doing another great challenge! We want you to show us how you can incorporate embossing on your layouts. This is one of my favorite things to do-- most people love their bug for cards, I actually prefer mine for LOs. I'm a big fan of adding some texture to my projects and embossing is peferect for that!

On this LO I used two different embossing folders, Swiss Dots and Spider Web. I embossed some iradescent vellum with Swiss Dots on the angel wings. Then I embossed the red photo mat and the half marquee with the Spider Web embossing folder then inked with some black glitter Studio g pigment ink.

Make sure you stop by the blog and check out the rest of my DT sister projects for some more inspiration on how to use your bug on LOs. I will update this post with the prize for this weeks random winner once Nilda posts!

Thanks for stopping in!

Here's my design for our challenge this week at Practical Scrappers. I created this little fish bowl card for some fun!

here are the detail on the card and what I used:
DCWV textured cardstock
D'Vine Swirls embossing folder used on the water
Eyelets for bubbles
Dew Drops for pebbles
the fish is on the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge (there's a fishing guy on there)
the Seaweed is a Cottage Cutz die
the fish bowl I just drew by hand, cut it out, then outlined with marker

The Grand Prize this week is three digi stamps of your choice from Squigglefly! The contest is open until 5 pm ET on Saturday, June 12th. Have fun and use up some of those supplies!
