Woodsy Creatures - Be Inspired #39 (Vietuitoarele padurii)

I am thrilled to showcase another Provo Craft embossing folder being released for CHA - the Owl Flourish Folder!

I gotta tell you the new folders are wonderful! The improvements they have made, the embossing is deeper and the lip on the top is narrower.

Wanna win some of the folders going to CHA?

It's easy! participate in all 4 challenges for the month of July to be entered in the drawing if any given week we get over 200 participants each week, we will up the ante and give more new folders out! go on tell your friends and enter to win that easy!

So what is the challenge for this week?


This week challenge is to create a woodsy outdoor project, using woodsy animals (except for snakes) using twigs, pebbles anything from nature..

We have a fun colour combo for you as a component for this week. At least it was fun for me because I am not a fan of brights and bolds so you can only imagine....

Post your project on your blog or any online gallery (keyword is: CBI39), then Go to Cuttlebug Challenge Blog and leave a link to it.




The card is for a dear friend in Canada. It was her birthday yesterday so I made the card with her in mind. She also likes these colors more than I do, so Val, I hope you like it.



The box is for me. Finally something for me! I never have time to make pretty things for myself. This is the box where I keep my hair accessories. I got it long ago from my mother-in-law and it needed a make-up. At first I wanted to paint it all on the outside, but then I liked it with just the owl design on top so I decided to leave it like that.

I really love how it came out and I think this could be easily reproduced to make gift boxes for friends.

Wonderful presentation of this new & cool embossing folder, Meda! I'll be attending CHA at the end of the month, and I'll make a point of visiting the Cuttlebug booth indeed! I wish you could come along as well. It is time that you created something for "you", my dear! Keep up the great work!

Awesome! I love the colours you've used and the texture. Your friend in Canada is sure to love it. The box is SO sweet. It's fun to break down and make something just for you isn't it?
