Bitten By The Bug 2; Oh Baby Challenge


The current challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) challenge blog is...Oh Baby. For this challenge, we're teaming up with Double Trouble. Because of this, we are dropping the "must use a Cricut" rule to allow for any die cut as long as it meets the current theme.

I hope you join us and/or Double Trouble for this fun challenge.

My project:

I made a tunnel card! This card needed lots of foam adhesive and I think it turned out so cute! I used various cuts in Design Space of stars, clouds and a moon. It's so easy to search for these images. Even though there are lots of layers on this card, I still feel like it fits the "keep it simple" theme described under Thing 1. Do you agree?

WELCOME to Challenge #88 - Let the Troubles Begin 

This Challenge runs from 
Monday,  July 5th thru Sunday, July 18th
"Mood Board - Oh Baby" 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "July 12th is "National Simplicity Day" which promotes the concept of unnecessary clutter in our lives and the idea that less is more. As liberating as this may seem clutter is an accepted way of life when you have babies... so we decided to keep it simple.  

"Simply use My Mood Board for inspiration and create a project for a Gift Card, First Birthday, Invitation, Congratulations, Announcement, Thank You Note, Scrapbook page, etc."  

You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw.  

Thing 3: Twisted Sister says, "What! Eliminate clutter? Does that mean I have to scrap my scrapbook space? I don't think so! 

My stash is essential and dies are important to this challenge. Let's use at least one die or Cricut cut in creating your project and don't be afraid to use more than one, e.g., frames, sentiments, objects, borders, etc."  

You can stop here...
If you use a die or Cricut cut on your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw and can share it with Double Dare's Dare below.

Thing 2:  Double Dare
says, "Bitten by the Bug 2 is a challenge that usually requires the inclusion of a cut from a Cricut, however, we CUT a little Baby Die'al with them."
For this challenge only, our partner is accepting the use of cut items from punches, dies, and any digital cutting machine, but NO fussy-cutting! You need to have a baby project and use Twisted Sister's optional twist to enter.  

You earn an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw" when you enter your project HERE for Bitten by The Bug 2 "Baby".
if you use a Cricut Cut you will get another chance at the random draw. Don't keep us guessing, let us know in your post.
