Blog Hop with Creative Cuts n More

Welcome to Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop. You should have just come from Becky Voth’s, You don't want to miss what our designers have in store for you! I’m delighted to have been asked to help celebrate the launch of Creative Cuts and More’s brand NEW website! The Celebration Blog Hop starts at incase you didn’t start from the beginning.

If for some reason one of the links is broken along the way do not worry, HOP back over to Die Cut Diva where the complete list will be.

For my first project, I decided to use the Multiple Oval Frame – Super Large (8x10) in Mocha Texture. I printed off pictures of my little girl and my niece at a Tea Party that they attended at our library. I cut the pictures with an oval coluzzle to fit the smaller oval frames. Using Flourishes Flourished Elements set, I embossed the flourish with clear embossing powder in the corners. Used Spellbinders to cut out the computer generated title. After the two layers were attached together, I embossed another flourish in clear embossing powder on the side. Clear Zapdots by Helmar were used to attach the layers. Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots was used to attach the tea pot charm in the bottom corner.

For my second project, I used the Tuck Top Cube Box with Layers set in textured red with 2” smooth watermelon and 1 3/4” smooth guava sensation layers. Using Our Craft Lounge set, Flower Power, I stamped the 1 3/4” piece in black. Used copics to color them and added sparkle with clear stickles.   On the front, I used Spellbinders to cut out the sentiment. Restamped the word “Friend” in red and cut it out. Attached it with clear ZapDots.

Here is the box starting at the front and going around to the right:

Here is the box with the lid open:
For my last project, I used the Square Window A7 Scallop card in Amethyst Metallic. I stamped a floral print in gold on the front and added ribbon with a bow. The picture is actually attached on the inside of the card. It is Vintage Roses from Our Craft Lounge. I used copics to color the image and Sparkly Fluff on her hat.


Here is another look at the card where you can see the gold stamping a little better. The above shows the shimmer of the cardstock that Terri has.
