Let's Get Fruity with The Cuttlebug Spot


This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we're getting fruity, or should I say our projects must all have some kind of fruit on them. Well, this challenge project comes with ANOTHER little story. LOL Skip this part if you're bored. Since the beginning of the year crafting has taken over my life and my daily exercise has been cut down to...well, shall we say non-existant? Needless to say this has not been great for the figure and the jeans are getting mighty tight. Therefor, I have resumed my healthy eating plan and added at least a bit of activity other than loading the Cricut and cranking the Cuttlebug in hopes of being able to fit comfortably into my winter clothes. If starvation isn't bad enough, I've been on the wagon since last Monday (that being a WEEK ago, not yesterday) so the ONLY fruits I could think about were WINE GRAPES. LOL I made this tag using my 3 smallest oval Nesties which I glued and popped to a hand cut triangle. I used an old cartridge package for the leaves. First I dropped in some alcohol inks and let them dry. Then I cut it with my Cuttlebug Leaf die and embossed. (Had to run it back and forth a few times and sort of punch it out, but eventually it worked.) I backed them with some cardstock leaves for a bit more color.
The label is a Nesties Label 4 with a bit of inking with Distress inks. I thought this would be cute packaging when I bring wine to a dinner party. I'm afraid I'm gonna be whining for at least as couple more days. No wine for me until Friday when we go to a special Winemaker's dinner at a local winery. Trust me, I'm counting the days! :D My Design Team sisters just rocked this challenge so why don't you go have a look HERE and of course we'd love to see what you're going to create.
