Here is another take on the Jasmine Frame Challenge from our designer Santina Turturro.

Sunday, February 24, 2008


Looking for some photo corners to put on your layouts or cards, well take a look at the JASMINE cartridge...on page 121 there is a cut called FRAME, this is perfect for adding photo corners to your projects and you can do it in any size you like....For this weeks challenge, the girls were asked to use this cut.........but there was a catch, they had to use it in YELLOW.........and yes once again they all did a wonderful, amazing job.....Remember there is still time to enter the current contest to win a PAPER DOLL cartridge...Peachy Keen Stamps is sponsoring the cart....their stamps are awesome...Take a look at Teri Berrios design this week, she used some of their amazing stamps on her project.

Yes it is contest time again.............oooooooooo I so love contests and this time around we have the awesome PEACHY KEEN STAMPS online store sponsoring a PAPER DOLL cartridge to one lucky winner.....Kathy over at PEACHY KEEN STAMPS is awesome. They sell some of the cutest well made clear stamps, but they are really best known for their HAPPY FACE STAMPS. These stamps go hand and hand with the PAPER DOLL cartridge. PEACHY KEEN STAMPS offers so many different expression for your PAPER DOLL faces.......If you already own the PAPER DOLL cartridge, you really need to invest in a set of these faces.........THEY ARE AWESOME....Here is a little bit about PEACHY KEEN STAMPS:

Peachy Keen Stamps is a family owned and now, an Incorporated business. We carry a complete line of self-clinging, transparent stamps. The stamps are unmounted and require an acrylic block to adhere to as a temporary mount. The designs are created by me and the stamps are manufactured by my husband, Dave. Dave is a polymer tech who has over 25 years experience in stamp making. Our products are 100% guaranteed against manufacturer defect or your money back.

We've taken the frustration of faces out of the equation when it comes to making paper dolls and more. Peachy Keen Stamps currently holds the largest selection of face stamps in the world! :)

When I visited the PEACHY KEEN STAMP site, it immediately made me feel all cheery and wonderful inside because the stamps are just so cute, so with that said, we here at the BUG site want to see some colorful, cheery cards..............Spring is just around the corner and the colors I think of during Spring time is like ORANGES, GREENS, YELLOWS, HOT PINKS with a touch of brown.

Before I get to this weeks challenge, I want to announce that the BUG site is starting another contest TODAY..........The awesome PEACHY KEEN STAMPS is sponsoring a PAPER DOLL cartridge to one lucky winner.....Click CONTEST for details.

The Doodlecharms cartridge has to be one of my favorite has so many cute little cuts on for instance the envelopes..........These adorable envelopes can be cut and embellished to where you don't even need a card to go with them....The designers this week we asked to use either of the envelope cuts on the Doodlecharms cart...There are two, one on page 86 (not an actual envelope) and the other is on page 131....and once again the ladies all did a wonderful job.....Don't forget to check the blog within about a week, we will be having another contest...
