CottageCutz Ghost House Halloween Card

Greetings everyone.  Today's creation features beautiful Halloween CottageCutz dies in an exciting array of shapes.  The main focal point of the card is CottageCutz Spooky Ghost House.  Isn't this fabulous.  Just cut out your die on black card stock and mount it on a piece of orange cardstock that is 1/4" larger than the die to make it pop!
For the CottageCuz Halloween Tag the die was cut on orange glitter paper.  After die cutting, just take the die and trace around the outside on black paper and cut with scissors.  Mount the orange glitter die cut on top and you have this awesome contrast.
The green scarecrow is the CottageCutz Harvest Scarecrow.  The Gold with Brush Corduroy distress inked scarecrow is CottageCutz Garden Scarecrow.   The top border is CottageCutz Graveyard Border.
 Thank you for checking out this Spooktacular Halloween card today.  Sure do appreciate.  Be sure to check out the latest CottageCutz Halloween Release for all you Halloween Papercrafting needs.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  These are the CottageCutz dies used:

Butterfly Altered Glassine Bay

 Greetings Papercrafters.  Today is a share of another project done for the Butterfly Pocket Letter swap I did.  This is an altered Glassine bag.  I just love altering these.  They are fun to do. 
Look at how beautiful this flower turned out!  It was made with the CottageCutz die called Flower Cluster but taken to a 3D level by using a five petal punch.  Studio G purple and blue inks were used to shade the flowers and there are pearl centers.  Peeled Paint distress ink shades the stem and leaves.
The beautiful Spellbinders oval die host the framing of this gorgeous flower.  The butterflies are K&Company.  A Martha Stewart deep border punch trims the background.  The topper is a Marianne Die and the "Createis Hedi Swapp.  The reason I used that word is because I filled this back with goodies to "Create".  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visit.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon.

Altered Butterfly Photo Holder

 Hello Crafters.  Did anyone get these Burlap Photo Holders from Michael's this spring.  They had the butterflies and birds and I don't remember what else.  I have been scoping out Pinterest looking for anyone that has altered these and haven't been successful.  This one was altered for a swap I was in that had a Butterfly Theme.  It was perfect to fit the theme.
The wings on the butterfly are trimmed with small doilies that I crocheted.  The little butterflies are Marthat Stewart.  The big butterfly is a CottageCutz die as well as the little blue flower.  The yellow flower is Sizzix and the Carmelia is a Spellbinders die.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!

Butterfly Themed Pocket Letter

Today's project features a Butterfly Themed Pocket Letter that I created for a swap with Deb over at Garage Sale Gal.  This was a fun theme and I did several projects that I will share over the next few days before I do back to Halloween and Fall projects.
Starting with the top three pockets, pocket #1 is a Cheery Lynn Hydrange die.  The middle pocket uses CottageCutz Ornate Fence.  Pocket #3 is CottageCutz Flowerpot Mini, and Flower Mini.  The Butterfly Embellishments from K&Company.
For the center of the pocket letter, Pocket #4 has CottageCutz Daisy Showers.  The Center Pocket is a shaker and it features the CottageCutz Springtime Window.    Pocket #6 features CottageCutz Flower Bouquet Jar.
For Pocket #7 the Brown Eyes Susan fl0wers were created with a Sizzix die.  Pocket #8 is the CottageCutz Flower Cluster die.  Pocket #9 is CottageCutz Watering Can with Tulips die.
  This is a tag created to dangle on the Pocket Letter.  It's a blackboard tag that comes from Michael's.  I used a Cricut Alphabet Cartridge to create the name.  The CottageCutz Victorian Frames was used to decorate the tag.  The butterfly is CottageCutz Garden Delight.  As you can see, CottageCutz dies are absolutely perfect for creating Pocket Letters.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this Pocket Letter.  Be sure to check back for more items that were created for the swap that I will be posting the next few days  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!

Tea In Paris Box

 Happy Saturday Everyone.  Today's project is the last of the "Tea in Paris" themed gift I did.  Isn't this just darling?  Oh, by the way that Paris cut is from the "Summer in Paris" Cricut Cartridge.  The bling Eiffel Tower was from my stash.  I got that from Michael's a while back.  It fit perfectly on the image.  Just love the way it looks.
The flowers are Recollection and so is the crystal bling.  I rolled the rose from an old book page and placed a pearl in the inside.  All and all this was pretty easy to put together.  Thanks so much for stopping by for a peek!  Be sure to keep checking back.  I have lots of projects to post.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!

Cricut Forever Young Cartridge Purse-Tea in Paris

Chirp, Chirp, Chirp.....what is that sound you say?  Well it's a Cricut...yes that's right.  After years and years of my cricut just sitting on the desk, I decided to give it another try.  Someone came to craft with me and we made Mickey Mouse images and it was so fun, I got hooked.  This purse was made from the Forever Young Cartridge.  That is an awesome Cartridge.  This was so easy to create.
This purse holds three 3 x 3 cards inside.  It has it's own cut out clasp so it doesn't need a velcro or magnets.  It's just sweet an adorable.
This is another piece to the "Tea in Paris" gift set I created.  There are only a couple more pieces to show of it.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon!

Tea In Paris Tea Cup Tower with Julie Nutting Prima Stamp

Hello friends and crafters.  Today is a littel project I created for a "Tea In Paris" themed gift I sent to a friend.  This goes with the Tea In Paris Pocket Letter seen here, the Eiffel Tower seen here, the Paris card here, and the Paris Shoes and Shoe-box here.
For the teacups, I used the Brenda Walton Teacup die from Sizzix and stacked them three high.  The flowers are recollection except for the rolled roses that I made myself.
Tea in Paris was cut on a Cricut, the butterflies are a Marthat Stewart Punch.  The Julie Nutting Doll Stamp is Audrey.
The entire project was decorated front to back so that it could be enjoyed from all angles.   The paper is from K & Company and is double sided.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  This was so much fun to make.  I really enjoyed creating this.  There are still a couple more things to share from this theme I made so keep checking.  I am trying to catch up on posts.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon.
