My Latest Tumbler Request!!

Happy Wed.! Hello everyone, How are all my friends and visitors doing? I hope all is well with everyone. Today, I thought I would share with you my latest tumbler request, "The Angry Birds". If you are not familiar with them, they are the games that everyone plays on their phones, tablets, and now I hear they are on the internet. I play it on my tablet, and it is a lot of fun. I had a request from one of my friends, who plays it everyday to create him a tumbler, so this is what I came up with. It has the green pigs, slingshots, which the birds are being launched thru. Angry birds title on the back, and I will add the persons name below that. I really think it came out cute, not too busy since it is for a male. Love to get some feed back, on what are your thoughts. Catcha later, have a great week. I will be adding this tumbler to my store soon. Thanks for visiting.

TCBS-Easel Card w/ twist!

Happy Tues.

Hi~ya everyone,

How are all of my cyber friends and visitors today? I hope you are all safe and well, especially those that are in the path of the nasty weather. We experienced some heavy rain and thunderstorms last week, but it has been beautiful the past few days.

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot our challenge was to create an Easel card. I love making these cards, and this time I did something a little different. I made a easel card with a twist! Get it, my name with a twist, lol. I have seen these cards before, but most are made square. I wanted mine to be A-2 size, so I Google-d it and found different variations. Once I found one I like, I made a sample until I got it right.

This card is for my oldest brother who's birthday is next month. I know I won't have time to make him one, will be busy making Mother's Day cards and Graduation gifts. He doesn't like frilly things, so this one is more his style. He loves classic cars and trucks. I made the sentiment a pop-up when the card is opened. For this I used a small piece of heavy duty acetate folded in half, and secured with sticky tape. I love how the card angles, and inside has room for a quick message. He doesn't like all that mushy stuff, just straight forward. The soft pale plaid colors are one of my favorites. I am not sure if you can tell, but the green underneath has been embossed with the cuttlebug. The design paper has foil in the gray and blue sections. A very pretty paper for doing a card for a male. OK, I have been running off at the mouth, so I want to see your creation for this weeks challenge. Be sure to check out what my D/T members have in store for you this week at The Cuttlebug Spot! Catcha' later!

More Graduation Tumblers!

Hi Everyone,

I would like to wish all a happy Good Friday! I hope you are having a good start to your Easter weekend.

Today I would like to share with you, some graduation tumblers that I have been commissioned to make. The first two are for a high school that is in Stockton Ca. Their colors are black, red, silver with a splash of white.

The purple one is for a high school in Bakersfield Ca. The colors are purple, gold and white. I used a metallic silver and gold to give it more pop. I really love how they came out, and these are perfect graduation gifts. How cool is it to have a remembrance of your high school grad year, and with it personalize too. The top also has a grad hat and diploma on it, (not shown).

If you have a wish for one, please contact me thru my on-line store, to discuss the particulars. Check out some that are available on my store.

The cups can be created in a variety of colors, (providing availability). Please place your orders early so that I may accommodate you.

These are ship-able by Priority Mail Only! Thanks for viewing and have a great Easter weekend!

The Cuttlebug Spot~Sketches!!

Happy Tues!

Hi~ya All,

I hope everyone is having a nice start to the month of April. The weather was gorgeous today, unlike Saturday when it was storming.

It is time for another Cuttlebug Spot challenge, and this week our theme is "Sketches." We were to design a card using a particular layout, which was fun. I myself like designing my own themes, but it was fun to be creative, and it really makes you think outside of the box. I am sure my D/T members have some awesome displays ready to share with you. Be sure to check out everyone's input, and play along with us this week. I am sponsoring this weeks prize, a lovely Expression cover I created.

On A Different Note: You might want to check out my store, if you're in need of a cover for your machine. I will no longer be creating covers for the Expression, since they have came out with different machines. What I have left is all that is available. I will be adding the final ones within the next couple of weeks, so if it says only one available, and you like it, better grab it. I hope to see a creation from you over at The Cuttlebug Spot blog. Have a great week everyone!

Baseball Mom Tumbler!

Happy Sunday!

Hi~ya All,

Happy April Fools day to all the jokesters out here in cyber-space. Hello to all my visitors and friends who stopped by to visit.

I have another tumbler to share with you today. This one I made for my BF Nilda, you know her from The Cuttlebug Spot. Well she is an avid baseball fan, and has 3 boys who also plays little league baseball. I can only imagine sitting thru 3 games, watching the kids in this hot California weather. I came up with the idea to make her a custom drink tumbler, that will keep her drinks nice and cold. I personalized it with her name. I can make them for other team sports also, soccer, basketball. etc. If you would like one visit my on-line store, and if you want a special order you can e-mail me at: umbuggin09@comcast.net. I love these cups, no condensation, they are double walled. Tell me what you think. Have a nice start to your week.
