Have A Crafty Day♥♥

Hello fellow lovebugs!!

here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!!
On Tuesday I posted page one of a layout I created and well here I am on Friday with page two. And best yet I adorned it with some delicious Red Sheer Ribbon from the LoveBug Christmas Release Christmas Candy.
Isn't it cute? I tied it in a bow and hung one of the snowflakes from it with a tiny white safety pin. Love the way the sheer ribbon glimmers!!

Wednesday Awesome-ness with Kathy, Stephanie, Katie & Christine ♥

Happy Wednesday Lovebug Friends!
It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, and today I am sharing with you a card that features the new "Kisses" Rumple Ribbon.
Stop by my blog for all the details.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hey y'all! Stephanie here.
It's another snowy Wednesday around my neck of the woods. We are all starting to feel cabin fever set in and are craving Spring!!
Today I want to share this cute hair clip I made for my daughter. To me it feels fresh & spring-like.
  I used the newest sheer ribbon, "Crushed" from the Loves Me...Loves Me Knot collection. I topped the ribbon flower off with a new Beautiful Bloom! Love these fabulous flowers! They are so fun to add to a project. You can read more about this hair clip over at my blog.
Have a great Hump day!!

A sale on #10 red envelopes means a new size card.  And my go to product is always Rumple Ribbon!!  This time in 'On the Edge'
I love how this turned out and that 'menu' style will be great to add little notes to someone special once in a while.  Hop over to the blog for details or the video link.

Hi, it's Christine, sneaking in a project that I created using one of the beautiful new colors of Rumple Ribbon that were released last weekend during the Valentine Loves Me, Loves Me Knot Blog Hop.

Come over to the Scarlet Calliope Blog to see what I made and find out what color I used!

The Click Your Heels Tag - The New Greeting Card

Good Morning, Crafties.  
It's Mama LoveBug here to share my new favorite crafting project - 
The Tag, the New Greeting Card.  
I coined this phrase as it's so true - tags can give you a whole new way to express your creativity, use all types of items from ribbon to stamped images to just about anything - the sky's the limit on your imagination.

LoveBug Creations' new I Love Grunge Rumple Ribbon really took my imagination to a bit of "steampunk" with the focal image of the shoe (colored with watercolor pencils), a stamp I just bought, and the saying, Click your heels, was just perfect.  I covered a kraft tag with patterned paper, made a fake bow using the We R Memory Envelope Punch Board and then made a real bow from the new grunge.  For added items I used a doily die, some colorful feathers print and cut with my Cameo, and a bit of chipboard border at the bottom.  More grunge at the top finished this baby off and there you have it.
On the second picture I added one of the LBC Beautiful Blooms for even more texture and interest!

You can make a little envelope to adhere to the back and inside that you can tuck in a message for the recipient.  How cool is that!!

So click your heels three times and let your imagination soar!!
Remember no matter how you bundle your blooms, rumple your ribbon, and piece your paper, have fun with it................cybertags...........Mama LoveBug

Mama's Mesh Monday W/ Dorcas, Dawn Rene & Stacey ♥

Happy Monday all!!!
How's the weather where you are???
It's downright horrible here!
Thanks to everyone who hopped with us over the weekend!
Did you see the new release items???
If not you can see them all in the store by clicking here!!!
Hi everyone!

Orange seems to be the color I'm loving lately.  I created this cute card and thought I'd share it for Mama's Mesh Monday.  I used the Mama's Mesh from the Halloween set.  It blends perfectly with the Chevron paper, doesn't it?

Please stop by my blog for more details.

Dawn Rene here with you to share an easy DIY home decor project - a ribbon wrapped candle. I wrapped Lovebug Creations' Mama's Mesh around a white candle. Then I tied Lovebug Creations' Sheer Ribbon in a bow on top of the mesh. Simple and elegant!
Ribbon Wrapped Candle - Designs By Dawn Rene

Hi there!
here to show you another project that uses that fun Mama's Mesh!

Since it is still so cold almost everywhere, I decided to make this cute little card.

For my bow, I used some Mama's Mesh from the Merry Mesh Collection.

I love how versatile Mama's Mesh is!

You can use it for a accent or make it your focal point, the sky is the limit!

You can read more about my card on my blog,

I hope you have a wonderful crafty day!

Loves Me... Loves Me Knot Blog Hop ♥

Hello Everybuggie!  Welcome to LoveBug Creations’ Love’s Me... Love’s Me Knot Blog Hop and New Release Event! 

Since we primarily sell ribbon, a knot is very important! It's what ties the bow in place and it's love that we share with others that ties us together.

We are so excited to share with you our new products that center around love.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you might be planning some projects to demonstrate love for family, friends, co-workers, neighbors – the sky’s the limit with love!!

The New Love Products
1. Rumple Ribbon- The Loves Me...Love Me Knot Collection:

2. I Love Grunge

3. Simply Sheer

4. Beautiful Blooms

5. It's a Bundle, Baby!!!

This weekend ONLY we are offering our
"It's a Bundle, Baby" 
for $35!!!
What's included you ask?
Everything you see above (45 Yards of Ribbon & 18 Blooms) + 1 yard of Mesh (either White, Pinkish/Purple, Red or Black) + Free Shipping! 
It's a Bundle, Baby!!! :)
Project Love -
Mama LoveBug here - I have two projects to share for our LBC New Release Hop

The first is a 3-D double-sided stand-up card, which can be used for a table decoration at a Love Event; our CT Connie got me thinking about penguins and I found this little gal in the Cameo store from Stinkin' Cute - and she is just that; I used two new LBC products after cutting and gel-pen accenting her:
1. Simply Sheer - just the kiss of pink for my little penguin
2. Beautiful Blooms - the large one in kisses and added a tiny pearl to its center
She's all blinged up and ready to reign over a Valentine celebration!!

My second project is a Valentine Tag, but not just any old tag - this is a Julie Nutting doll stamp and thanks to CT Dawn Rene, I am a huge fan of this stamp. I think the "Tag is the New Greeting Card" - what do you think??

I stamped her twice, once on Tim Holtz glassine paper for the body and once on some colorful Kathy Davis paper for the dress, ruffle, and headband.  I have a ribbon die that has strips of pink twine threaded through and I topped the center with new products
1. LBC Beautiful Blooms in Envious - a small one
2. Mama's Mesh (along the right side of the tag)
and a few other items like the heart border stamp and cut out hearts

BTW - the Beautiful Blooms make a wonderful addition to any project - they are light-weight so they can be used as a paper embellishment; they are shiny, they come in 3 different sizes and 6 different colors, and they can accommodate additional bling - perfect for centers on ribbon or other textures; and they're lots of fun to play with!!  I am sure you want your Valentine projects to be extra-special and these new products and colors can take your imagination to the next level!

Hi everyone!!!
It's Kimi!!!
I hope you enjoy the hop!!! Weren't Mama Lovebugs projects super awesome??

Ok for my project I wanted to do something I've never done!
So here goes nothing....
I got this sign at a garage sale years ago for 25 cents
so I decided I would take it and turn it into this:

I used the White Mama's Mesh and a Kisses Beautiful Bloom (Large) here on the top:

To dot the "i" I used a small Kisses Beautiful Bloom!!

And for the bottom corner I used a Medium Kisses Beautiful Bloom and the gorgeous "I Love Grunge" Rumple Ribbon to make a fun ribbon flower!!!

I also used:
-Digital Paper 
-The wording is a Silhouette Store File
-Simply White Rumple Ribbon (along the bottom)
-White paint
-Pink paint
-Helmar Crackle Medium

So now it's time to hop along...Here's the full line-up in case you get lost!!!!!

Remember, no matter how you bundle your blooms, rumple your ribbon, and piece your paper..........have fun with it...........cyberloveknot from Kimi and Mama LoveBug

And now let the love take you to the talented Stacey

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

I really enjoyed creating this fun candle for a friend of mine. She has a therapy dog named Daltrey and he is a Labradoodle. He is such a character.
The LBC Halloween Grunge Rumple Ribbon was the perfect color combination for the colors of vinyl I used. I added a pretty flower and pearl on the lid to finish it off. I think it turned out pretty awesome. Don't you?


Please stop by my blog to read more details and see more pics of this and other projects using LBC products. Become my follower, join in my monthly challenges or just come hang out at

Hello Lovebuggies! Kristi here again from Little Paper Sprinkles.

To create this cutie I started with a2 card base, added some stitching with stamps. Cut out the sewing machine from the Silhouette Store. I used Peachy Keen stamps Happy Lashes for face, added some MAMA's Mesh in white to background, a few more embellishments and done! So fun and cute!

Beautiful projects by Stephanie, Katie & Kathy ♥

Happy Hump Day, Every-buggy!!!
The gals have lots of inspiration for you today!!
But before we get to that don't forget Saturday is our
next release & blog hop!!
We hope you'll join us!!!
Now on to the team....

Hello Lovebug friends! It's a snowy Wednesday here, so I thought making a card with flowers & bright colors would help chase away the gloom!
I love the basic colors of the rumple ribbons from the Just the Basics collection, and the Simply Grey that I used here is no exception! I have always loved orange & grey together. I think the grey ribbon coordinates nicely with the floral paper also.
You can see more details about this card on my blog.
Have a fantastic day y'all!

It is time for romance and candy - altered style!!
This week I used both the sheer ribbon and some PRESSED rumple ribbon.  Some of the other gals have ironed it before and I thought they were nuts - I mean all that shabby love pressed out??  Then I wanted it lie a little differnt for this project, so I pulled William through the curling iron... and I LOVE IT!
If you want some more details or link to the video hop on over to the blog

Hello Lovebug Friends!

Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, here to share with you a sneak peek at a new Simply Sheer color.
I have been playing around with the new releases and I have to say, I LOVE them!  And you're going to love them too :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Mama's Mesh Monday W/ Stacey, Dawn Rene & Dorcas ♥

Happy Monday!!!
In case you didn't see the news we will be having
a NEW Release & Blog Hop on
Saturday Jan 25!!!
Hope to see you then!

Now on to the designers for today!!!

Hi there!
here to show you my Mama's Mesh project for this week.

For my project, I cut this box out of the Silhouette Online Store and then embellished it by making this pretty little flower out of some of that Awesome Mama's Mesh!

For my flower, I used some Rosebud Mama's Mesh and some Merry Mesh for the leaves. 
I also used some Purple-dise Rumple Ribbon to tie my box shut. 

You can read more about my project on my blog, Stacey's Creative Corner.

I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!

Dawn Rene
I just got done making 25 bows for my daughter's cheearleading squad. So I thought I would try to make a bow with Lovebug Creations' Mama's Mesh. Simple, fun, and girly!
Pink Mesh Bow - DDDR

I am loving this weather we've been having in South Florida lately.  The cool weather gives me a chance to sit indoors and play with paper and ribbon and come up with all sorts of goodies.

This week's Mama's Mesh is green!  I wanted to make a special birthday card for a friend and found the perfect combination of Mama's Mesh and patterned paper.  Exciting!  I also used George and Halloween Grunge rumple ribbon to make it all beautiful!  Hope to see you on my Blog!!

Just Chillin' Blog Hop

Welcome to the Just Chillin' Blog Hop - if you bounced over from Jenny, then you're on the right iceberg, but if you swam upon this and want to start with our blog hostess, join in with Connie

Penguins Unite!
It's me, Pandora Penguin, and I'm here to say hi.  I'm all decked out in my finery - I'm wearing my LBC Mama's Mesh stole and dazzling pin; I've chosen a 3-D flower with LBC Simply Sheer Ribbon and some twine and I've even got a gift bag for the event - So Let's Party!!

I'm sharing in some Just Chillin' Mojo Magic today as our theme is all about me and my kind.

We have a great sponsor for our hop - Creative Cuts with a $10 gift certificate - you need to fan each spot and leave a comment and then let our blog hostess, Connie, know you followed the rules!

So do you know much about penguins?  Let's see:

*We are aquatic, flightless birds that are highly adapted to life in the water.

*Our distinct tuxedo-like appearance is called countershading, a form of camouflage that helps keep us safe in the water.

*We do have wing-bones, though they are flipper-like and are extremely suited to swimming. We are the fastest swimming and deepest diving species of any birds.

*We are found almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, where we catch our food underwater and raise our young on land. BTW, we do NOT live at the North Pole.

*In general, penguins closer to the Equator eat more fish and penguins closer to Antarctica eat more squid and krill (yummy)!

*My lifespan is 15 to 20 years.

*The smallest of us is the blue penguin also known as the fairy penguin (16 inches tall) and the largest is the emperor penguin (3 ½ feet tall).

*We are social birds. Many species feed, swim and nest in groups.

*I don’t jump – I bounce!

*Two-thirds of us are at risk, with five species officially considered endangered. Please be kind to us!!

Seriously, Mama LoveBug here for this National Awareness of Penguins! My project today is a Let's Just Chill party invitation card with two penguins from a Peachy Keen die I had, a Cameo-cut center step card using some fun Kathy Davis paper in various layers, and I used some of that paper for the penguins' hats.  The center is a 3-D flower from Lori Whitlock and the center of that is LBC Rumple Ribbon.

Here's the entire penguin parade in case you get lost:
1. Connie-
Remember no matter how you rumple your ribbon and piece your paper, 
have fun with it.........cyberpenguins........Mama LoveBug

Well, I hope you enjoyed my spot and now I'll send you on to BETH
