Connie Gets Creative ♥

Hello Lovebugs!!

here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 

Here's another beauty I created while at Let's Get Creative at the Prima Outlet in Chino, California. This make and take was so easy and yet is so elegant!
 

This tag is made with lots of Prima goodies.  But what I really love is the gorgeous Simply Gray Sheer Ribbon from LoveBug Creations that I topped it off with.

Beautiful Bookmarks w/ Tanya Hahn ♥

Good Morning! Tanya H. from Crafting on Caffeine here and today is my Day!
 I'm so happy to show you these bookmarkers. My Daughter flipped when I made them!


I first cut out 2 flowers with the Flower Die from Jaded Blossom Spring Die Set, One Cardstock and one Lovebug Creations Mama's Mesh. then I hot-glued them together. Next I took a circle and hot glued them together with the Hugh paperclip in between and pressed together to secure. 
I then made a bow with Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon and spread it out and hot glued that on as well.


Hope you enjoyed all 3 and maybe you will try to make yourself one. 

Thanks for stoping by and Taking a Look! And be sure to play along with us at the Lovebug Lounge on Facebook Monthly challenges!!

Sweet Birthday Wishes w/ Stephanie ♥

Hey Lovebug friends & welcome to another Tuesday with me, Stephanie!
Thursday is my mom's birthday so I am sharing the card I made for her. Her favorite color is pink & she loves flowers.
 I have used Garden Green rumple ribbon here from the "Gardens of Tara" collection. It works so well with the pinks in the card & green striped paper. I know my mom will love this! You can read more on my blog.
Thanks for checking out my project! Make it a crafty day y'all!

Happy Summer w/ Dawn Mercedes ♥

Dawn Mercedes here...from Sunnyside Up!

 It's summer time...and time to have some watery, wavy fun with 
Lovebug Creations' very unique..Mama's Mesh!
Did you know that there are 15 different colors you can buy?
You don't have to keep it straight for your crafting projects.




Here, I cut a wave into it. 
I flipped the small section to the bottom...
sponged both the top edge and the bottom edge with a blue ink.

Glue Dots ® are a great way to secure this mesh ribbon!
For more ideas using Mama's Mesh, swim on over to this line up of projects
