Cute as a Bug

I hope everyone is feeling happy and scrappy on this Friday morning!!

Today, I am featuring the Cottage Cutz Ric Rac Edger die and the Grasshopper Die.

I used the patterned paper as my inspiration to create my grasshopper shape. I love that I can make him coordinate perfectly with the paper because of the versatility of the Cottage Cutz dies! I am all about the matchy-matchy!! :)
In order to create a 12" long strip with the ric rac edger die, I used the same technique I demonstrated on my last Watch for it Wednesday post. If you want to see that technique again, just click here.

This picture is of my adorable new nephew when he was just a few days old. It is so fun to have a little boy around for me to scrap!

Don't forget about the contest we have running right now! Check out the sketch from this week's Watch for it Wednesday post and use it to create a layout showcasing one of your favorite Cottage Cutz dies (as if you can really have just one favorite!). The entries so far are really cute so keep them coming!! Who couldn't use a little free spending $$$ at the Cottage!! So don't miss your chance!!

Have a great weekend!!
