Stephanie, Katie & Kathy ROCK the Lovebug Blog ♥

Happy Hump Day!!!
Hope it's warm and toasty where you are!!!
Here in Ohio...It's very cold! In fact it's about 30 degrees BELOW normal for this time of year! I don't know about you but I'm beyond ready for spring!!!
But since that's nowhere in sight I'll just enjoy the cheery projects the CT made and think warm thoughts!! ♥

Hey every"buggy"! I hope you are having a great day & are hopefully finding time to be crafty!!
I have another birthday card to share with you today. Another good friend had a birthday yesterday, so I made this card for her:
I used rumple ribbon in William, which is from the "Oh Cecilia, Family Ties" collection. 
To see more about this card, visit my blog
Thanks for letting me share with you today! See you next week!

I needed a little book to keep track of some notes and hopefully add a few pics to later.  I used those great red #10 envelopes from a few weeks ago.  There are three envelopes folded in half with the tiniest tip of the ends cut so I have room to put the little note cards in.

All three page sets are the same, Key paper matted on the front, animal print inside, then the more open space and the little pocket on the back page.
Nothing better to use as a closure than Rumple Ribbon.  For this project the Edgy Halloween with that kind of smoky edge is about perfect.  Get yours here.
Here is the cover - with a big button to use as a 'wrap around' for the ribbon.  For a few more photos please feel free to stop by the blog
Happy Hump Day Lovebug Friends!
It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, and today I am sharing with you my first shaker card.  I finally jumped on the sequins train!
Have you made any shaker cards using Lovebug Creations ribbons or mesh?  Be sure to share in the Lovebug Lounge, we'd love to see them!
Thanks for stopping by!

And speaking of the Lovebug Lounge....There's 2 days left to get your challenge project posted!!! Anything Valentine's Related with any LBC product!!! Hope to see yours there! ♥

Good-bye to Dawn Rene & Welcome back to Dorcas!!! ♥

It's Monday, Every-Buggy...
and a sad Monday for us here at Lovebug Creations...
Today we say good-bye to Dawn Rene.
She has been with the Creative Team for over a year now and we will miss her greatly! Hopefully we will continue to see projects from her! She is a uniquely talented lady who has inspired all of us!!
I went back to her blog and found the first official Lovebug Creations post just for fun! Here was Dawn Rene's First Post...
And here's her final post...
Dawn Rene here today to share a Happy Birthday card I made using three colors of Mama's Mesh to create a beautiful ruffle! I love the colors blue, green and purple together. The mesh ruffle is topped off with lace, white gingham, and a button. The background is dry embossed and slightly sanded. The "Happy Birthday" stamp is from Close to My Heart!

Thank you Dawn Rene for the wonderful friendship and talent you've shown us!!! We will truly miss you!!!
♥ Kimi & Pamela

And on a happier note...

Dorcas is back!!! YAY!!!
Hi everyone!

I'm back from a brief moving hiatus.  I cannot tell you how much I missed my crafty space these last three weeks.

I'm here to share a simple 5 x 5 card made with Brown Mama's Mesh and some pretty Caddy Blue rumple ribbon.  I hope you enjoy.  Be sure to check out my blog for more details.

Rainbow Birthday Card by Kimi ♥

Hello Every-Buggy!!! It's Kimi (I know...How odd I've made 2 cards in a week!) again!!! My oldest daughter's best friend celebrated her birthday yesterday and I wanted to make her a card! Gave me a good excuse to actually craft ;)
My daughter told me she likes rainbows and I had just seen SVG Cutting Files had come out with a Rainbow Stitch Up! Now when I went to her store to purchase I noticed the write up about this said that it was a "great way to use your twine or floss". Ok...Being the Rumple Ribbon Queen I had to try it...I wasn't sure I'd be able to do it but..... I LOVE how it turned out! SO...Let it be known...Rumple Ribbon is a great product to use on the stitch up files too!!! :)
Rumple Ribbon Colors used - Rosebud, Sunset, Lemonade, Olive You, Simply Blue & a sneak peek of a new shade of purple :)
I also used some of my favorite Jaded Blossom products: Simple Sayings (the Happy Birthday) & their new Spring Dies (for the grass)
Heidi Grace papers and epoxy embellishments along with some pop dots finished this sweet birthday card off!!! I hope you enjoy this and that maybe it will inspire you to try something different!!!
Bug hugs,

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

I spent this last weekend away at a scrap retreat and was able to play with my ribbon and mesh!
I really love the way this card turned out. The top of the card reminds me of a curtain on a little girl's princess bedroom window. And just outside a magical unicorn is flying by.

Hello Lovebuggies! Kristi here from Little Paper Sprinkles!

I have been wanting to try a shaker card forever, for some reason they intimidated me! Why? I am not sure, but I am here to say it was super easy and super fun!

For this project today, I used "Jaded" Rumple Ribbon which is a new fave of mine, I can tell because it is almost gone! Eeekk! :) 

For more details head on over to my BLOG! 

Have a great day!

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

Happy Mama's Mesh Monday!!!
Hope your weekend went well!!!
Dawn Rene & Stacey are here today to share some gorgeousness with you!
So sit back and be inspired!!!
Hello! Dawn Rene here to share another Julie Nutting Mixed Media doll tag. I promise this will be the last one for a while! I used FOUR different Lovebug Creations products on this tag.

I stamped the Prima doll stamp with black ink and colored her body with Copic markers. Her clothes, shoes, and hair band are paper pieced with BoBunny papers. She has a Lovebug Creations Beautiful Blooms in her hair! I made a multi-layer butterfly with a Sizzix die - the top layer is Mama's Mesh. The sheer ribbon and rumple ribbon adorn the top of the tag!

Mama LoveBug here -This is a one-day hop to explore the creativity of using Hello Kitty in various ways, but do you know much about Hello Kitty?  Sanrio, a Japanese company, launched the first Hello Kitty product, a coin purse, in 1974 as a marketing tool to promote interest for the image.  Today Hello Kitty is on a huge number of products, videos, games, etc.  She does not have a mouth because the concept was to allow the user to project a happy or sad feeling through friendship.  Also, did you know the original Hello Kitty had blue as her dominant dress color?
She has been a UNICEF ambassador to the United States since 1983 and to Japan since 1994. Then, in 2008, she was appointed as the official Japanese ambassador of tourism to both Hong Kong and China, the first fictional character to hold this title.  Wow, who knew?!

I made a Hello Kitty Perpetual Calendar - the inside has 12 sheets (one for each month) that allow one to record important events by the month and day; there's also a back cover.  This is perfect for keeping track of birthdays and anniversaries and not to have to recopy dates onto a new calendar.

I used LoveBug Creations NEW Simply Sheer (Loves Me Loves Me Knot) for HK's bow.

Next I took one of the LoveBug Creations NEW Beautiful Blooms (white) and sprayed it with some pink highlights for interesting detailing - you can also use ink for a distressed look, but my HK is bright and cheery so I went with the spray!

LoveBug Creations Simply Sheer Ribbon

Handmade Perpetual Calendar Base
Hello Kitty designer paper and some pearlized embossed cardstock
Sizzix Top Note and Fan die

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