LBC March Holidays Blog Hop

                                                                     Hey y'all and welcome to Lovebug Creations' Creative Team FIRST EVER blog hop!!! The theme is MARCH Holidays. We are totally tickled to have you and super excited to show you MORE of the NEW Rumple Ribbon!!! They will be live in the store on Sunday, Feb 24, 2013. 

If you just so happened to find my blog and want to start at the beginning, please visit Lovebug Creations Blog. The entire line up is there in case you may get lost along the way. If you got here from Zeni's Blog, you are on the right track. Doesn't she do amazing work?? 

Now, onto my project. Going with the theme, SPRING is one of my favorite times of the year and just so happens to be March 20. Spring brings flowers and most of you know my LOVE for flower making. The color rumple ribbon I used is BALLET SLIPPERS. You may remember it in my sneaky peek from Tuesday. ( sorry if it looks different, photos and lighting don't always work) 

I started with a plain 'ole water bottle and chopped the top of. I painted some Gesso on the bottle so the paint would stick. I then mixed some CTMH Create A Shade and some ink. I painted it over the dried Gesso. This gave the bottle a beautiful pink shimmer. I wrapped lace around the bottle and then put the Ballet Slippers ribbon over it around the center and tied a bow. I hand made the flowers. The tag was a print and cut from the Silhouette Store. I added tulle and stamens to the bottom. 

Thanks for stopping by and now you are on your way to Christine's Blog. I'm sure she has something wonderful to show you. 
Don't forget to comment on each blog for a chance to win your choice of 2 colors of ribbon. You MUST comment on EVERY blog in the hop.( open to US residents only.. sorry)  Again, to start at the beginning please visit >> Lovebug Creations .

Happy Crafting and big Hugs,

For my project, I used BALLET SLIPPERS!!! I love the softness of this color.

I used the Ballet Slippers solid to make the flower and the "On The Edge" for the center then added a lil bling.( I used a low temp flat iron to iron the ribbon flat to make the flower)  Lace and feathers and tulle were added to add to the POP of the Rumple Ribbon Flower. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom "Simple Sayings Valentine Edition". I LOVE LOVE this set. You DON'T only have to use it for Valentine's Day as you can see.

I am FORTUNATE to have you as a teacher.

                                                                      Hey y'all and thanks for coming back to see this post. I am LOVING these little treats and they were soooo easy to make. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making them!! 

 This project came TOTALLY from Country Woman !! They have the printable for the sentiment and the fortunes to put in the cookies. I did tweek the fortunes a bit so they are not done per the instructions. I used only the felt. I made my own boxes from the Silhouette store and made my holes and used wire for the handle. I used Ribbon from Lovebug Creations to wrap around the wire. I also purchased the V-Day kisses circles from the Silhouette store to put on the bottom of the Hershey's Kisses. I LOVE this because I can print and cut and I don't have to punch each little circle out!! Major time saver!!! 

There ya go.. Totally easy and a wonderful site to visit. There are tons of awesome ideas with detailed instructions. 

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Valentine's for the kiddos :)

Hey y'all!! So happy to have you. :)  Today I have some CUTE lil bags I made for my son's pre-school class. I LOVE the way these turned out!!! I'll be showing you the teacher gifts I made tomorrow. :)  I am showing a close up of the 3 basic designs I went with. Thought it would be better than a photo of all 16 bags. :) 
So.. on with the show.. 

 For this cutie I used Paper Piecings By Nikki for the cute lil elephant. I used my Cameo to make it one piece instead of piecing it all. That is ALOT of work for 3-5 yr olds to throw away!!! The heart doily was a file I bought from The Silhouette Store as well as the sentiment. The ribbon is from Lovebug Creations. I LOVE LOVE their RUMPLE RIBBON!!!  This little guy is sitting on an Action Wobble as well. 

   This sweet thang just SCREAMED .. PRINT ME!! Who says a bunny can't help share a special Valentine message? I print and cut this from my Cameo. Other supplies are the same as above. 
What child doesn't just LOVE bears?? I also got him from the Silhouette store. I used the dotted lines feature to add a lil "something" to him. The sentiment is a stamp from My Creative Time. This is an older Valentines stamp. The other supplies are the same as well. 
I hope my son's class love their lil goodies!! I'll be back to show you what I made for the teachers tomorrow.  Thank you for stopping in!! 

Happy Crafting!!
