Secret Santa Gift For a Special Lovebug!

Good morning! I am so excited to do this secret santa with our Lovebug Creations' Creative Team!!  We all are someone's secret santa and today we are posting our handmade gift but not saying who it is! :)  This is what I made using some beautiful Mama's Mesh and Simply Sheer ribbon in various colors:

Along with this gift there will be some additional goodies included! So to my Lovebug Creations Creative Team Sister, I hope you enjoy it!

Lovebug Creations Mama's Mesh: Merry Mesh and Winter Mesh
Lovebug Creations Simply Sheer Christmas Candy and Winter Wishes
Jaded Blossom Holiday Treat Bags
Jaded Blossom Layered Frame and Journal Die

My dear crafty friend Cecilia from Crafting the Night created the calendar as a silhouette file and I thought it was a perfect fit for these dies.  I absolutely love how this came out and might be making more as gifts! 

I am also entering this project in the Jaded Blossom December Challenge: Anything Christmas.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Happy Birthday Tanya!

We are just a few short hours away from beginning to celebrate a very special birthday! Tanya from Scrappin' KY Momma will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow.  So instead of posting something for her on her actual birthday, Lovebug Creations' gals and myself decided to do it the night before to surprise her!

Tanya is the sweetest, most caring person that I have had the pleasure to not just meet online because of our common interest in crafting, but to also call my friend.  She's a great mother and wife and juggles a lot between everything in her life.  If there is anyone that deserves to have a "spa day" is definitely her and I hope that I can accomplish that for her with this gift. 

 Here is everything that's inside for her ME days!

The tutorial for this box can be found at Splitcoaststampers.

Cardstock and Pattern Paper: Core'dinations and Authentic Lively Stack
Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon: Lots of Queen Taylor and Green Leaves
Jaded Blossom: Treat Tag Die, Mini Tag Dies, Pamper Yourself Stamp set,  Make a Wish Stamp Set, and Gusset Bags

Tanya, I hope you have the beautiful day that you deserve.  You are truly an amazing person with an amazing heart!!! Love you girl!!!! :)

Lovebug Creations Christmas New Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Lovebug Creations Have Yourself a Meshy Rumple Christmas New Release and Blog Hop! 

If you have arrived here from Dawn Rene's blog then you are in the right place, and if you just happen to be visiting me, you don't want to miss all the fun projects and blog candy so head on over to Lovebug Creations and start from there.

I absolutely love the new ribbons in the store and can't wait to create even more with them!! This Christmas is sure going to be a lot of fun for me!

For my project I used Merry Mesh collection and also Simply Sheer Christmas Candy collection.

I saw that a couple of people made a Christmas tree with my 2nd most favorite crafty company Jaded Blossom mustache die (sorry girls.... Lovebug Creations is my first!), so I wanted to try to do the same thing, except that I added the mesh to it!!! Can I tell you just how much I love it!!!   

Mesh Tree Instructions
For the "mesh tree" I used cuttlebug's plate B and C.  I layered them exactly in this order, first the die, then the mesh and lastly I used a piece of cardstock (Core'dinations glittery white cardstock same as the base for the journal die).  When you cut in the matter, the mesh will automatically stick to the cardstock. 
 Add a bit of glue so the mesh will permanently stick to the cardstock.  

Additional Materials: 
Jaded Blossom's Layered Frame and Journal Die
Jaded Blossom's Mustache Dies
Jaded Blossom's Christmas Candies
Stampin' Up Petite Pennants Builder Punch (for the base)

Before you go, do you smell some delicious blog candy?  Here’s what you need to do to win a $15 gift certificate to the LBC store HERE

1. Fan each hop stop (if you aren’t already) and leave a meshy rumple love note
2. Zip over the FB LBC page and say you attended the hop today HERE
3. Easy instructions – so what are you waiting for??

AND for the first 25 people who shop this weekend and spend $25 or more, you’ll receive an extra special surprise – FREE 2 yards of a delicious grunge rumple ribbon color called Golden Licorice – it’s a super surprise from us to our wonderful customers!!
Thank you so much and hope you have a Meshy Rumple Christmas!  The next festive blog spot is the most talented Stephanie

Happy Birthday Kyra!

Today I am posting on the Lovebug Creation blog and I'm excited for this
cute little personalized card I made for my daughter's firend! I haven't been
blogging much for fun and I've been working on getting my Etsy store a
little more organized and doing new things and venturing into the business world, lol.
So little things like posting on this blog make me really happy! :)

 I used some of my most favorite things, beautiful
Olive You rumple ribbon (my favorite color!) and Jaded Blossom goodies.

I triple looped the bow to give it a fuller look and added a little pearl to give it more of an elegant look.

Since I'm big into invitations and party decorations, I decided to do an invitation for this hop.  Wedding Wishes is just perfect for this and if you add the beautiful colors of Lovebug Creations rumple ribbon, it just makes for a match made in heaven! (no pun intended!)

I used both wedding wishes and wedding candies stamp sets and simply blue and new butter cream rumple ribbon.  I think those two colors together are just beautiful.  I used the simply blue across the card and both colors as a ribbon behind the dress.  The stamp and the invitation wording just go together perfectly!

Happy Birthday Michelle!!!!

Welcome to Michelle's birthday blog hop!!! If you have arrived here from Xochitl's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happen to be stopping by you may want to start at Candace's blog, you don't miss out on the awesome projects made for Michelle, not to mention there is a lot of blog candy!

I made Michelle this card.  Of course, I used Jaded Blossom alphabet and birthday candies and I had to use some yummy rumple ribbon (purple-dise and a new coming soon color to the lovebug store!) from my bestie Kimi from Lovebug Creations!  
Michelle loves purple so I made sure to have some in there along with some echo park paper which she absolutely loves!

There is a funny story behind it.  As I was making the card on Tuesday night, I realized that I had lost the letter L.  So I went into panic mode and ordered another set and had it sent to me priority mail just so I can finish my card!! I'm pretty sure that I was emailing with Michelle on this since Candace was on vacation LOL.   It was placed in the mail Wednesday and I promptly received it yesterday, just in time for the hop!  Michelle, now you know why I desperately need it! Not to mention that I had orders to fill that I use these candies for!  

I had a lot of fun making this card and the ribbon center.  I basically wrapped the two colors around my three of my fingers (adjusting my fingers for the width that I wanted) and then tied it in the middle.  I made two of these and then glued them to a 2" circle.  I then cut the sides to give it this cute effect.   I added a button, some twine and a couple of fabulous pins that my dear friend Ana makes and voila!  I won't show the inside because it has a little surprise for the birthday girl!

Michelle, I hope you have a beautiful day and you enjoy your hop! You are such an inspiration to many and I'm so glad to know you and be a part of this great crafty celebration!

Just leave a comment on all the blogs along the hop!  
Don't Forget to Great the Birthday Girl!!!
The more blogs you comment on the more chances you have to win!
