Freebie Friday


Hello again and happy Friday. As always, Jodie has a great new freebie in the Bugaboo Stamps store today. This week it's the Flamingo- Sand 2, a great summer image.

I love decorating these little paper bags and using them as packaging for photos, cards and small gifts. I recently ordered a bunch of photos for my mom (of her trips to the beach with my kids), so I made this little bag to put them in. 



I colored it with my Spectrum Noirs and added a little glossy accents to the glasses and some stickles to the sun. The label was just printed from my computer and cut with the Silhouette, the flourish is also from the Silhouette. I added a little piece of gold glitter paper to act as the sand in the background.

So stop by the Bugaboo store to pick up your freebie and be sure to check out all the great new releases while you're there!

OBG Thursday With My Buddy Gus



Last month the priest at out church was turning 60 and someone sneaky at the church office posted it on facebook, along with a request to bombard him with birthday cards. And since I'm always looking for reasons to make cards, I was in for sure. I knew Gus would have something great to say for a 60th birthday so I went through my Bugaboo folder and finally decided on this one (Gus- Birthday Rocking Chair).  

I wanted to make the card fun so I chose some of these old Stampin' Up papers and lots of bright colors, and just a tiny bit of orange stickles too.


To see some more great OBG images be sure to check out the Catch the Bug blog. And as usual, Jodie has some fantastic new releases available in the Bugaboo Store
