Humor Me Wednesday


Good morning!  It's Humor Me Wednesday at Catch the Bug; Humor Me Holidays for this week are:

20: Moon Day
20: Ugly Truck Day (it's a guy thing)
21: National Junk Food Day
22: Hammock Day
25: Threading the Needle Day

I went with "Threading the Needle Day"...I thought a sewing theme would be fun!  I've colored the image with pencils and pulled some sewing themed papers from my stash...I actually had the coordinating scissor brad to match!  I did a bit of layering and added some silver brads for embellishing.  Sketch is from The Vintage Challenge.

Princess


Good morning; we have a new sketch for you at Sketch Saturday.  Here it is:

Just envision the possibilities!  I knew I wanted to make a baby card and when I was looking for the onesie die, I came across this fun paper...I went clean and simple and decided to let it do the work for me.  I love the "Princess" motif!  I've added a touch of glitter to the onesie and a tiny heart button to the sentiment for embellishing.

Sentiment: Computer Generated
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, Imaginisce Patterned Paper

Oldie but Goodie + Photo Challenge


Good morning!  Welcome to Day 6 of Catch the Bug's Christmas in July!  Thursdays are "Oldie but Goodie" day plus we have a Photo Challenge; check it out:


Instead of a "Sand Snowman", I went for a snowman "Sand Skiing"!  The image is colored with pencils.  I kept the layout simple to focus on the fun image and have embellished simply with brads and a die cut snowflake.

Humor Me Wednesday + BINGO


Good morning!  Welcome to Day 5 of Catch the Bug's Christmas in July!  Today is Humor Me Wednesday plus BINGO, check it out:


I went with Gertrude and the top horizontal row of the BINGO card.  Gertrude is colored with pencils and I've added Glossy Accents to her glasses...this is a step I don't often take because I am too impatient to let it dry!  I'm glad I did though...the dimension and shine really look nice in real life!  I've also added silver brads for shine along with an embossed red strip.  I opted for a bit of sparkle too with the silver glitter strip.  I don't think you can ever have enough sparkle and shine!

Catch the Bug's Christmas in July: Jingle All the Way


Good morning!  Today kicks off Catch the Bug's Christmas in July week, which will run through July 17th.  We are in for a fun week...I hope you will join us!


The theme for today is "Jingle All the Way".  I went clean and simple today and made a card that could be constructed easily in multiples.  The image is colored with pencils, cut out, and mounted to die cuts.  I have scored 5 lines across the bottom of the card to ground the image, but had a hard time capturing the texture in the photo.

Sketch Saturday


Good morning sketch fans!  It's Saturday so that means we have a great new sketch for you at Sketch Saturday...check it out:

I was a little bit stumped with the top panel, but then I thought of clouds!  I got out a Cat's Pajamas stamp set and some dies.  I had fun with this one; there's no coloring so it was a change of pace...a bit of paper piecing and die cutting.  I've embellished with Swarovski flatback crystals, buttons, and twine.  I love all the sparkle and texture!
