Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge #46







Happy Wednesday! It's time for the Cuttlebug Be Inspired #46 Challenge! We are thrilled to be working with this week's sponsor...the fabulous Cosmo Cricket!! This week's challenge is to create projects with a "Back-to-School" theme! Good timing, huh?!


I received the awesome new Jolly by Golly line of paper and ribbon to work with, lucky me!! Yes, it was already on my wish list after seeing the sneak peeks of it at CHA! I love everything Christmas and this is such a fun collection! So...how to make it work for a "back-to-school" theme?! I decided to make a teacher gift that would be ready for her on the school's first snow day! I decorated a cannister of Sprinkles cupcake mix and added a matching card. Since I'm a teacher, I happen to have first-hand knowledge this would be an awesome teacher gift! hee! hee!


Of course, I had to jazz it up with some Cuttlebug goodness, so I used the Snowflakes embossing folder on the "Snow Day" piece on the card, as well as the Swiss Dots folder. Aren't those striped and snowflake ribbons absolutely yummy too?



For the Sprinkles cannister, I jazzed up the gift tag and cord with some snowflakes from the Winter Jelly embossing set.


Be sure and run over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the wonderful design team came up with! You will be amazed at all the great ideas for "back-to-school" projects they made! Of course, it's easy to be super inspired with the Cuttlebug and Cosmo Cricket! You will definitely want to play along with the challenge this week for a chance to win some yummy Cosmo Cricket of your own!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
