For my Card today I am showcasing the DARLING CottageCutz "Moose with Bird" die. He is colored with copic markers, and I used some Viva Pearl Pen for the white on his eyes. Next I chose to use the Tree's from the CottageCutz "Campground" Die, they too are cut out in white, and then colored with copic markers in 2 different shades of green. The little sign that says "Moose You" is from another die in this release.

The Hello Friends is a stamp I used, and then cut out. This card was super simple to make, as all I did was 2 layers, and then added my die cut pieces using foam squares and circles in different heights.

Santa's Naughty or Nice Page/Family Christmas Memories Album

Hello Friends! Happy Thursday to all!
Today I'm sharing another page from the "Family Christmas Memories Album" Iv'e been working on this last week for the Scrapping Cottage.

For this page, I have used a 6" x 6" chipboard piece, and covered it with American Crafts Design Papers. Next The frame I created was designed using Spellbinders Die, and the sentiment tag was done using SU! punches. For the SU! tag, I used the CottageCutz stamp that was released last year in the Christmas gift set. I also used the Naughty and Nice from the same giftset.

I absolutely LOVE Santa, he is so Jolly and Sweet! Matter of fact, we still hang stockings for the kids and us, because Santa still stops by for a visit every year at the Walkers :) 
This CottageCutz Santa & Friends is absolutely one of my Favorites,and worked perfect for this page.Santa and his friends are all colored using Copic markers. I also used white glitter for Santa's fur on his coat,pants, and hat. For behind Santa, I used pieces of the CottageCutz Holiday Floral Spray, and just left them white.

On the Right side of the page, I used the CottageCutz Bare Tree w/ Accessories , and just colored it green. Lastly I finished off my page with some Red Sheer Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Supplies Used:
Spellbinders Dies
StampinUp! dies
American Crafts Design Paper
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Copic Markers to color
Scor-tape
Helmar Glue
I hope you enjoyed today's post, and thank you for stopping by!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

CottageCutz Deer Snowflake Scene Card

Hello everyone and welcome to another CottageCutz Die creation.  Glad could stop by. It's Carol here today.  This year there seems to be a lot of "Burlap" for Christmas.  Even the "Dollar Tree" is carrying burlap Poinsettia.  Have you seen them?  The burlap trend is no carrying over to Christmas.  This is what inspired me to create this card.
For this Christmas Card the following dies were used:  Deer Snowflake Scene, Snow Swept Border, Vintage Bells, Winter Frost Border, Deer, and Deer-Set.  There are pearls in the center of the snowflakes and I used glitter on almost all of the white cardstock.  This is called a "Stair Step" card just in case you would like to create one for your holiday needs.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to check out all the new Christmas release.  They are all super gorgeous and perfect for crafting your Christmas cards.  You will find that these dies make your crafts got together in a cinch and they are beautiful as well.  Until next time---Happy Crafting!

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Hello, my dear readers. Vladka here! 
It is time to think about Christmas gifts and when we don´t know what to buy (special when we are talking about man), it is a perfect solution to buy a gift card. And gift card in such a holder is great, don´t you think?
I created both of them with following CottageCutz dies: Gift Card Holder, Bells (Petites), Expressions Happy Holidays, Holly Branch w/ Bow, Gift Set (Merry Christmas Expression).
As always I colored them with Distress Inks and added also red stripe to the bottom, which is used to hold the front side of little envelope.
I hope I gave you some inspiration. Have a nice week.

Family Christmas Memories/Sleigh Bells Ring Page

This is "Sleigh Bells Ring"  8 x 8 page.
Hello everyone, Cheryl here with Page 1 of my Family Christmas Memories Album I am creating for The Scrapping Cottage using the New CottageCutz Christmas dies
This page is big enough to have a photo on the outside of the pocket, and then the tag on the inside can hold 2 more photo's. So for a total of 2 photo's for this page. 

On this page I used CottageCutz Vintage Bells die for the page and for the tag, I then used the CottageCutz Petites Sleigh for along the bottom of the page. I use copics to color all, and then some glitter for some extra bling.

Our family is CottageCutz Expressions die. and was uswed on the tag. 
CottageCutz Dies used:

I added some Ribbons, Snowflakes and a sticker sentiment to the tag at the top. I absolutely LOVE this Christmas Release and cant wait to share more of my pages with all of you :)

Thank you for stopping by today, and Have a super wonderful day!!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

Whimsical Reindeer and the Sleigh

Hi, my dear readers. Vladka here! 
Rudolph is ready to go. He just need to wait for all the presents to be loaded and for Santa to get inside of the sleigh. It's snowing and atmosphere is perfect. 
New Christmas CottageCutz Dies are so playful . I used following dies: SleighWhimsical Reindeer, Woodland Snowlady (I used both bows) and expression Let is Snow. You just have to look all these dies and ideas comes by themselves. Die cuts are colored with distress inks and background is made out of some stamps and blue and white tempera. Originally, Sleigh are in opposite direction, but I just turn them around and used back side of die cut. 
Have a nice weekend!
