The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge for this week: Inspired by a song

Hi there, it is almost Cuttlebug Tuesday again and the theme continues! This whole month we use inspiration, I think it is a supertheme!

For this week the inspiration must come from a song! Are you inspired by the lyrics, instruments, message.... or does the song define an important moment in your life like songs at a wedding?

Come and join us at the Cuttlebug Spot and win an amazing prize!! And do go and see what my other Design Team Members have done with this Challenge!!!!

Music was and always will be very important for me! There is always music where ever I go, in my car or traveling by train or when I am crafting, I need it!!!

I have a lot of memories way back! They somehow get inside you and where ever you go and you hear a song, it always reminds me of a certain event or place I was then! It always brings back nice memories!

In our house there where 3 artist who rule!
My mums'favorite:Neil Daimond!

My sisters'favorite: Elvis!

And mine: ABBA!!

Those three genres are very important to me! And are in my system!

When this challenge came I thought of millions of songs that have inspired me! But crafting has inspired me too! So why not combine them! I bought this amazing Telephone paper! And I thought..... ABBA......

I was sitting by the phone
I was waiting all alone
Baby by myself I sit and wait and wonder about you
It's a dark and dreary night
Seems like nothing's going right
Won't you tell me honey how can I go on here without you

Yes I'm down and feeling blue
And I don't know what to do, oh-oh

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please understand the need in me
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call

I cut a page out of an old phonebook! And then put the card together! I used the folder with numbers (that's what you need to ring right?) and run it through the Cuttlebug! Then I put brads through the holes of the telephone! Remember we used to put our fingers in the holes to dial? Oooo good old times!!
And I made a bow with some twine!
I then used a cartoon bubble and put in the words "So ring ring"

Isn't it supercute??

Close-up from the telephone, which I totally love!

Good luck with your inspiration! can't wait to see what you've come up with!

We hebben deze week inspiratie door een lied! Nou dat was wel lastig, muziek is zo belangrijk voor mij, ik heb altijd muziek om me heen, in de auto, trein of als ik zit te knutselen! Ik kan gewoon niet zonder. Daarom was het moeilijk kiezen! Maar toen dacht ik waarom niet 2 inspiraties bundelen, knutselen en muziek! Toen ik dit geweldige "Telefoonpapier" kocht moest ik het wel voor deze challenge gebruiken! Dus "Ring Ring" van ABBA is het geworden! Alle ABBA liedjes vind ik super, ABBA zit in mijn systeem! Thuis waren er 3 muziekstijlen die continue aanwezig waren: Neil Daimond van mijn moeder, Elvis van mijn zus en ABBA van mij! Wie heeft het niet, als je een liedje hoort dat je meteen weet waar je toen was!
Ik heb dus een kaart gemaakt, met als achtergrond gewoon een pagina uit een oud telefoonboek en ben toen gaan opbouwen! Ben helemaal verliefd op het telefoontje, die ook bij dit papier hoorde! De gaatjes waar je vroeger je vingers moest inzetten om het nummer te draaien (oe dat mis ik wel hoor) heb ik verfraaid met brads! En ik heb met de embossingfolder Nummers een extra touch aan de kaart gegeven, want die heb je toch nodig om te bellen! En om het af te ronden, touw als extra accent! Daarboven nog een cartoonballon met de tekst "So ring ring"

Ik vind hem super gelukt en wens je veel succes met deze challenge, ben benieuwd wat je er van maakt! En vergeet niet naar de te gaan om de andere Designers te bewonderen!
