Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge 31: Words with POWER

Good morning everyone! Are you having a wonderful Wednesday? I sure hope so!! Wednesday is all about the cuttlebug and the butterflies around here!! I ended up combining the two as I was just tired and wasn't sure that I could even pull a simple butterfly card out this week!

The Cuttlebug Challenge team is sponsored by Create & Treasure this week. They sent the design team a variety of their products and we were asked to create a 3D project. They are generously donating a prize pack to a participant as well! You can see the details over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog!

My project actually fit in very well with the challenge for FlutterBy Wednesday as Danni wanted us to use a quote/sentiment this week along with our butterflies or fairies.

I used the tag book to create a mini book of words that are very powerful, in general and especially to me! Words that describe characteristics I strive to have. Words to remind me to stay on track.


All the pages were covered with some vintage dictionary pages and then stamped. The cuttlebug was used to cut out the decorative strip as well as all the elements for my flowers. A little cream paint was smeared on with my finger so that part of my title would stand out!

Here are the interior pages. I used the same elements on every page which really helped it come together fast!



A different view of my completed book.

Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog so you can see the rest of the team's creations. Leave them some love and encouragement on their blogs too! I look forward to seeing YOUR 3D projects!!
And don't forget those awesome FlutterBy girls too! Nicola is our featured stamper this week. Be sure to visit Danni's blog to see her feature and to leave your link with your butterfly or fairy creation! And visit Nancy too - her birthday was yesterday!! And Harriet, Heather and Michelle could certainly use some get well wishes!! Kim too, her allergies have really been acting up!
HMMM - just leave everyone some love!!! All the links are over there!! OH - almost forgot, we get to welcome 2 new team members this week too - see the details on Danni's blog!
