Saluting You By Dawn Mercedes

This is Dawn Mercedes, of Sunnyside Up, saluting you on another 
gloriously, sunny, and happy day!

Here is another great way to use Rumple Ribbon....
Simply Blue, Crazy Coral, and Simply White.

Glue Dots ® XL dot and Mini dots make this a breeze!
It's a shabby chic patriotic card
...and now all you need is a hot dog and some fireworks.

Doesn't that XL Glue Dot ® make a fantastic rossette?
Be sure to play in the May Flower Challenge 

March on over to the Lovebug Creations store and stock up on festive
colors for the summer months.

Stephanie's Sweet Thanks & Katie's Good-bye ♥

Hey Lovebug friends! Stephanie here on this fabulous Wednesday.
I want to share with you some more "thank you" notes that I recently made.  
I am the worst at getting them out to people! These are for friends & they are just a few weeks late!!
For the first card, I used the beautiful Rosebud rumple ribbon from the "Spring Rainbow" collection. On my second card, I used a sheer ribbon in Crushed  from the "Loves Me...Love Me Knot" collection! I made a flower with the ribbon & adorned it with a Beautiful Bloom in the center.
You can read more about these cards on my blog .
Thanks for letting me share with you all today!    
It is with a very heavy heart I make my final post for Love Bug Creations.  I have so appreciated being a part of this creative team.  I have learned so much from each and every fellow member.  Kim and Pam run this company like true professionals - and that is a lovely gift in the craft world.  I am so grateful for all they have done to promote me and my brand.
I wish I had the time to give them and their amazing product the attention it deserves but I am not going to pursue another term.  I will miss you all!!!
OK - enough sniffling... on to the post...  I am giving you a twofer this week.  Same great stamp from  Paper Trey Ink, but one card with Simply Black Rumple Ribbon and the other with Mama's Mesh.  I really like how the mesh repeats that 'giraffe feel'

Card Kit w/ Katie ♥

Have you tried these card kits yet??? You can find them on HSN and HOLY COW!!!! They make the nicest, most detailed cards in literally minutes! Now, the kits include perefctly coordinated little bows, but I have to confess, I prefer my Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations. I like to wrap around a card and often like the knot as opposed to a bow. You might see a few more of these in the next few posts because I just LOVE how quickly they come together. This Garden Window set is perfectly matched to the Spring Collection from Lovebug Creations!

Dawn Mercedes Poppy Tutorial ♥

Hi! This is Dawn Mercedes from Sunnyside Up!
Using a Box Flower tutorial, I created poppies
 out of Simple Red Mama's Mesh from Lovebug Creations!

Very simply..
cut out four circles. (I used a die.)
Fold each circle in half and arrange them as you might fold down four box flaps.
I used red thread and put in a few stitches to secure my flower together.
Then, I sewed on a sunny yellow button!

The Green Leaves rumple ribbon was attached using Glue Dots...and I love the look
of the rumply leaves!  Poppy leaves are sort of jaggety!  

Don't you just LOVE poppies? 
I do!

Remember, this month, we want to see what kinds of flowers you can make using ribbons
and mesh from the Lovebug Creation's site!

Thanks for remembering us today!
Remember what comes this weekend...

Connie's Cute Spring Banner ♥

Hello Lovebugs!!
Connie Can Crop
here (finally with my finished banner project) to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!! 

I started these buggy creations weeks ago with the plan to create a cute Spring wreath. But my plans did not work out. Sigh! Instead I turned my frown upside down and created this adorable Springtime Banner using Dahlia Rumple Ribbon from the Southern Sass Collection for my pretty Insect panels. I just love the way this finished banner turned out and hope you do too.

Let Stephanie & Katie INSPIRE you ♥

Hey friends! It's Stephanie here today to share a project I made for my daughter, Leah.
She had her fifth grade play last week at school & the final performance was Friday night. Her dad and I both gave her flowers after the play was over. I made this star wand to accompany them in the vase.

I was super excited by the way it turned out! I added some "Fun Footz" ribbons (that are now retired) in the zebra & giraffe print  to the back of the star. My bow is made with "Kisses" simply sheer ribbon from the "Loves Me...Loves Me Knot" collection, and rumple ribbon in "Rosebud".
You can read more about this project on my blog.
Thanks so much for letting me share with you! Get out there & shine!
People seem to always ask... what is your inspiration... Sadly, it is new product!  I ordered a big (BIG!) box of Paper Trey Ink Stamps and I just LOVE this pretty little butterfly that also has a matching die. I wanted to use it so I went to Pinterest and found a sketch with an image about the same size. This one didn't have measurements, so I eyeballed it - I just love how the papers coordinate and that Caddy Blue Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations is a perfect match!
