BBTB2; Summer Fun Challenge

Hi there Cricuteers! Is that a thing? It just popped up in my mind. LOL  Today starts the new two week challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) challenge site. The current challenge is Summer Fun!

There are so many activities that could be lumped into the "Summer Fun" theme. I decided to make these customized sunglasses to wear while enjoying them.

Check out the YouTube video:
Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos!

Here are some photos:

Of course while I was taking the photos, I realized that I probably should have put Summer on the left side and Babe on the right...but it's not so important for them to read this way.

I used the Palm Tree from the Luau image set, "summer" from Summer Forever set & "babe" from Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice set in DS. I mention it in the video, but just wanted to let you know, I searched for the words, summer & babe in the images in DS. I do this often since you can find cute fonts or designs instead of typing with your font choices. This is a great idea if you're searching for a font with a mat and/or shadow.

Sunglasses = $1 at Dollar Tree
In the video, I mention that was going to give them to my granddaughter, but the "BABE" was not right for her (she's only 10) so I decided to give them to Kati. Kati is my DIL's teenage sister and is family. She modeled them and sent me this picture. She's so silly! You best believe that I'm making another pair just for my granddaughter! I know she'll love them.

This is a perfect project to use scrap pieces of vinyl. Can't you see doing something like this for a wedding, birthday, family reunion...anything really!?!

Your turn...create a project using the challenge theme of Summer Fun and link it on the BBTB2 site.


  1. I subscribed to your channel, I can't believe I hadn't already! Such an adorable project and so many great tips in the video. You rocked this as usual!


  2. Super cute project and what a great way to use the small vinyl scraps I save.

  3. I would’ve never thought to embellish a pair of plain sunglasses. Now your little friend has designer sunglasses!

  4. You sure made these sunglasses fun and special. I am sure your family will enjoy using the sunglasses.

  5. Such a fun idea-could be done for so many events!!!! Love the pic with her modeling them too!!!!


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
