Just Buggin' Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Just Buggin' Challenge Blog "Spring Into Spring" Blop Hop, sponsored by the Just Buggin Design Team!

If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at the Just Buggin' Challenge Blog. You should have arrived here from Stephanie's Blog!

Each of the Just Buggin' Designers has created a Spring project to share with you! My project uses the ever versatile "Base Camp" font cartridge! I chose this font because I wanted basic letters for my title. To add something a little different to my project, I decided to cut the actual letters using duplicates of my photos! This is a great way to use up those "not so great" photos you have around. There are severals ways to do this using your Cricut... I used the "Center Poing" feature on my Cricut Expression. I simply stuck my photo to the mat & moved the blade to where I wanted the center of letter to be... then selected Center Point and Cut! Then I used the Shadow Feature to cut a shadow to match out of coordinating patterned paper to help separate each letter & make it pop!


Thank you for joining us during the Just Buggin' Challenge Blog "Spring Into Spring" Blog Hop! Now you want to "hop" on over to Samantha's Blog to see her wonderful Spring project!

Have A Great Day!!
