QQ Blog Challenge - 10 Reasons-Cricut Puppy Piecing

Good morning Crafty friends,

Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday and getting ready for some super fun crafting this weekend! 

I wanted to share a project I made for the Quick Quotes Blog challenge starting today! Design Team member Michelle has issued our first challenge. Your challenge is to create a project with numbers on it. Please head over to the QQ Blog and enter your project! You could win some wonderful stuff!

So here is what I made:

Here is a view of the entire layout.

I used the beautiful Savvy Davvy Designer Paper From Quick Quotes as well as their new Vintage Alphabet – Savvy Davvy Set (SAM) and the adorable quotes are from the babies, kids & Families Itty Bitty Box Set. The top ten, the list and number border die cuts are from the Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge.

Here is a close up of one of the Quick Quotes Quotes that I used. I wanted to show here how I was able to stick the vellum quote onto the paper without showing any of the adhesive! I use a very common trick of “following the letters” in the back with my adhesive pen.

  8. I'm new to your site. I love the bunny. I've looked and looked at the Playtime cart and can't figure out how you made a bunny. The outfit looks like it's from the cut Dan, but I can't figure the rest out. Any chance of a tutorial on making the bunny? He is adorable. Thanks. Barbara
