ShortCuts, Cuttlebug Challenge & Jillibean Soup

It's Wednesday so time to show you my ShortCuts and Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot projects. Let's start with ShortCuts today. This month's sponsor is Deborah from MemoryWorks. She sent us some wonderful kits to work with. This card - again quite clean & simple - was inspired by SheetLoad of Cards July sketch. ShortCuts has teamed up with Caardvarks for their first challenge this month. Head on over to their new challenge post to find out how you can play along and win ShortCuts goodies!!

Starting this month, and each month through the end of the year, ShortCuts will welcome a new Guest Artist. You will be able to see their creations using the ShortCuts products on every Friday for the month. This month our Guest Designer is Lisette Gibbons. Lisette is an amazingly talented scrapbooker and card maker, and she is also a very wonderful person. I can tell, because Lisette is my dear sister-in-law. You can read more about Lisette's Guest DT gig here. Hop on over to her blog to see her gorgeous cards, mini albums and layouts.



Since last week my Wednesday blog posts are also dedicated to Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, because the new Be Inspired Challenges are posted on that day. I have been a DT member for only 2 weeks now, but I can tell you I love being a member a lot. The challenges are great. This week's challenge Be Inspired #39 is to create a woodsy outdoor project, using woodsy animals (except for snakes) using twigs, pebbles anything from nature and a fun colour template as a component for this week. Details on this week's challenge and the gorgeous DT projects can be found here. If you participate in all 4 challenges for the month of July you'll be entered in the drawing and have a chance to win some of the new folders going to CHA.

Here's my card for this week. Except for the ribbon and twine I only used goodies from my stash.



Supplies: Card, tag: Creative Café Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, rub-ons: October Afternoon Weathervane Paper frills: Doodlebug Design Button: Rusty Pickle Tools: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, EK Success Retro Flower punch Ribbon: Creative Impressions Twine: Jillibean Soup Other: jute

Again, I have some Jillibean Soup sneak peeks to show you. Today the new Calendar Sprouts are revealed. They come in 4 different colors. What do you think? I think they are great, and love them! You'll have a chance to win 4 packages of Calendar Sprouts by leaving a comment before Midnight EST here.



Yesterday the new Lentil Soup Collection was revealed. I love the colors of the new patterned paper collections.



I can tell you that the new papers look even more gorgeous IRL. How do I know? Well, yesterday I received this....



It is full of new goodies. Thanks, Jill!!

Have a Happy Wednesday, and thanks for stoppin by my blog!
