Bugaboo Stella Christmas - Fruitcake


Good morning, today at Catch the Bug we branch out and do Anything But a Card! So I decided
that I needed to do something for me...and my family. My Mom made the best Christmas cake ever, its actually an old recipe and called Stained Glass Cake. When my husband was diagnosed as Celiac this was one of the things he missed at Christmas. So it took us a lot of tries and fails (so MANY fails) but we finally got the recipe converted to Gluten Free and with Bugaboo's Stella Christmas - Fruitcake its amazing, enjoy!

Bugaboo Teddy Bear Winter Topper


Good morning, today starts a new challenge at Stella Says Sketch!

I chose to use Bugaboo's Teddy Bear Winter Topper for my card. The DP paper I used didn't have the beautiful blue in it so I stamped on more snowflakes in the right colour, then I embossed the paper with the tiny dots embossing folder. The white paper is embossed with Frosty morning, then I added stickles to the snowflakes.

Bugaboo Snowflake Frame


Good morning, today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug and its anything goes! July is always special because Bugaboo has a week long Christmas in July celebration. I thought I'd start off early and use this gorgeous image Jodie made, Snowflake Frame, I've been wanting to make something with it for a long time! I printed it on a shimmer paper which turned the black ink into a dark silver colour. I added stickles and liquid pearls and then the sentiment, so easy and fast!

Drop on by Catch the Bug and see what the other DT created and then start stamping! Christmas in July is on its way, begin the countdown!
