Sizzix Gorguss Girl Trinket Box for Mother's Day


Just one more Mother's Day project to share with your today and its a whopper!!!!!  This Sizzix Book & Pages Trinket Box die is a winner in my eyes.  Oh how I love this die.  It is so fun to make and put together.  You'll be seeing more of these in the future.
Just had to use these sweet little Gorjuss girls to decorate the book create to fit inside the box.   All the stamps have been colored with copic markers.  There is a acetate window on the door of the box.
This is page two and three inside the book.  The paper used for this project is from Prima called Rose Quartz. 
 This is page 3 & 4.  Each Gorjuss Girl is as sweet as the next.  A variety of different dies were used on each page.  Don't you love die cutting.  It's so fun!!!
 Here is page 5 & 6 of the book.  I didn't make it too embellished so that it would fit in the box.
 Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this project.  I have more coming up in the next few days.  I have been having fun in the craft room.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!!!

Mother's Day Sizzix Scallope Bag with Gorjuss Girl Stamp

Are you as smitten with Gorjuss Girls as I am?  They are so cute!!!  Hello my friends and fellow crafters.  Here is a little creation for Mother's Day using a Sizzix Scalloped Edge Bag die.
 The paper used is from Prima called Rose Quartz.  I'm so in love with that paper.  The roses were created with a Sizzix Die called 3D Flower #2.  The leaves are a Nellie Snellen die and the Flourish is a Cheery Lynn Die.  Little pearls were added to the center of the flowers.  This cute little bag is big enough to hold Alex and Ani bracelets as I had put a couple inside.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Happy Mother's Day.  Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Spellbinders Grand Arch 3D Die meets Gorjuss Girl

 Greetings friends and crafters.  For today, I would like to share a Mother's Day card that was created with a Spellbinders Grand Arch 3D die.  I am in love with these dies.  I only have this one, but I can assure you that the other two are on my wish list!  Don't you just love all the layers?  It's also very easy to assemble and folds flat to mail.  It's awesome!
The image inside is Gorjuss Girl #24 Heartfelt.  She's so sweet and perfect for a Mother's Day Card.  She was colored with Copic markers.  The Roses are created with a Sizzix die called:  3D flower No.2.  They were distressed with Victorian Velvet ink with a pearl center.  The leaves are a Nellie Snellen die and the flourish is Cheery Lynn.  The scalloped edge on top is a Martha Stewart punch.  
You can see all the layers here.  There are a total of 6 to create this card.  The 3D effect is stunning. Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I have a couple more projects to share for Mother's day.  Happy Mother's day to you.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Cottagecutz Sweet Fluffy Bunny Easter Card

 Greetings friends and crafters.  Here's a little something I'm sending off in the mail today.  It's an Easter card created with the super cute Cottagecutz die called Sweet Fluffy Bunny.
 As you can see, this is a shaker card.  I really love shaker cards.  I gave the bunny a darling fluffy pom pom tail.  
This is an easel card.  I used the Cottagecutz Happy Easter Egg on the bottom.  The butterflies are Martha Stewart and the little banner is from La La Land.  Hope you like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!

CottageCutz Bee Hives Memorydex Card

 Have you tried Memorydex cards?  Wow, they are little pieces of art that you can use the backs of for journaling and pictures.  Or you can just line them up in a Memorydex box and flip through them just to look at how pretty they are.  Even for inspiration for your next project.
They are so fun to create.  There are at least two groups on Facebook where people go to swap and trade these cuties.  One group is called the Memory Dex Swaps and the other is called Rolodex Card Addiction.  There are even tutorials on Youtube where you can make your own boxes with straws to keep these in.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to check out my project.  I am trying to get better at posting here.  If you like this card, I can post my February Valentine one.  Also, check out my YouTube channel "Carol Hurlock" as we have a Cottagecutz Easter Blog hop where you can when some fabulous gift certificates to The Scrapping Cottage.  Happy Crafting!

Cottagecutz Valentine Box and Card

 Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  Now here's what you can do with those boxes you saw at the
Dollar Tree.  Yes, that is what this is!  I purchased this and popped the red heart off and cut the gold heart to place under it and re-attached to the box.  It was easy to pop off with no damage to the box.  I added the very cute Cottagecutz Mr. Love Bug to the box and Tweet Love Dies.
 Isn't this Cottagecutz Tweet Love die just darling in the center.   There are so many things you can put in this box and they had different sizes.  The size I chose was the 6 x 6 box.
In side the Dollar Tree box I placed a card that I created with the Cottagecutz Hoot Loves You die.  The Boy and Girl Owls are simply adorable!
The card is 5-1/2 x 5-12 inches and fit perfectly inside the box. It's better than making your own box. This is being sent to my BFF/Sister in Connecticut and makes a pretty presentation in the box that I sent to her.
The Cottagecutz Hoot Loves You is so sweet.  The boy and girl owl are so fun.  I found a sticker in my stash that fit perfect on the heart body of the girl.  An older Martha Stewart Punch around the page was used for the square border around this card.
Rolled roses are such fun to make. Just wanted to show a close up and how pretty the sparkle is on them. I will be having a tutorial soon on my YouTube channel on how to make them.
They are cute don't you think.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I still have more Valentine to share.  I am trying to get used to some new programs and a new computer so I am slow getting my things posted.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.

Cottagecutz Mr. Snuggles & Hoot Loves You Gabel Boxes

 What is Valentine's day without a box full of Chocolates for someone special in your life!  Here are a couple of Gable  boxes created from a die in my stash.  These two boxes have been decorated with Cute Cottagecutz Dies.
Meet Mr. Snuggles from the Cottagecutz die collection.  Isn't he cute!!!  This is a great die to have in your collection because you can change out what he holds to fit the Holiday or Celebration you want to decorate with.   My Creative Time bow was used as well a Marianne die for the rolled roses.  The Sweet Flourish Cottagecutz die was used under the rolled roses.
For this Gable Box I used Hoot Love from Cottagecutz.  There is a boy and girl on a branch included with the die.  This is the box.  Later this week I will show you the whole die that I used on a card.

Hope this projects helps to inspire you to create Valentines for the ones you love.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to check back again this week as I will be posting my Valentine fun.  Until next time,  Happy Crafting!
