The Cuttlebug Spot Inspired by Children's Games


We're being inspired all month at The Cuttlebug Spot and this week it's by children's games. I've chosen Twister because I've always loved bright colors against a white background and dots to me mean PARTY! The background is embossed with the 5x7 Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder, and the 24 colored dots are embossed by the various textures from the Snow Fun 3x3 combo.
I actually punched the dots because it was faster, and I was able to emboss 4 at a time using the folder like this. Easy, peasy. (The hardest part was gluing them on straight.)
The birthday 'prise ( read "surprise") is cut twice from the Beautifully Boxed 3x3 combo. The yellow ribbon is cut and pasted directly over the white for contrast. I was really happy with the simple design that I think would work for guys or gals of any age. The DT came up with some really creative ideas so be sure to check them out HERE and play along for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops.
