CottageCutz Cardinal W/Branch

Hello everyone!  It's Carol here today.   Welcome to another addition of creation with the beautiful CottageCutz dies.  For today's project I am using the beautiful Cardinal w/Branch die.  Every year I made a card to send to my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-Law with a Cardinal on it.  This year I made the card with "Today's Trend" of using burlap with your Christmas Decorations.  Don't you just love this sketch?  I am a huge Pinterest fan.  The other day I needed some inspiration for a card layout and I found this pin on one of my boards.  So fun to create!
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  How are your Christmas creations coming along?  Hope you are enjoying the Holiday Season.  Happy Crafting!  See you soon!

Christmas Journal

Hi, all!  Vladka here! Maybe you saw my Camping Journal, but actually I created it after this one, which I want to show you today. This one is Christmas Journal and it is my special piece of work. Here is the front page, where I used  Whimsical Holiday Wreath, Double Bow and Splish Splash! Alphabet dies.

I combined a lot of SC dies, specially from last two Christmas releases. And without Distress Inks, white tempera and kraft cardstock I can't create anymore. :) Here are first two pages where I used  Trio Choir, Candle and Fancy Insert Card dies.

Next two pages are decorated with Gift Card Holder, Holly Branch and Little Angel:

I tried to add a little bit more winter atmosphere with Holiday Village and Woodland Snowlady die cuts to the next two pages:

And here are last two with little more Christmas spirit. Angel is playing on his harp and Santa has all gifts already in his bag. Here I used all these dies: Santa hat, Library Pocket, Santa and Friends, Angel with Harp, Stocking and Magnolia Doily.
I wish you all great day and here are all dies, which I used:

Snowman Winter Scene card

  Today I am sharing with you my new Holiday 2014 card I created with beautiful CottageCutz NEW Christmas 2014 Collections of dies.
  In this season of 2014 the CottageCutz Company have a huge Winter Collection of dies. One of these I used for my Snowman Christmas card. Very simple card. Just cut snowman out and embossed with dots embossing folder. Then, I created scene with snowflakes. After all, I added snowman scene to background and decorate with white pearls.

Christmas Memories Album/Video

Hello everyone Cheryl here  today , and I'm sharing my entire "Our Family Christmas Memories" Mini Album, using LOTS of CottageCutz Christmas Dies.
For the front cover I used the Sweet CottageCutz "Santa & Friends" Die, along with the Fireplace,  Deer Flying, Winter Wonderland Sleigh. I also used the Vintage Bells

For this next page I used the CottageCutz Vintage Bells, Sleigh Expressions Die "Our Family"  To see how each page is interactive please see my VIDEO below.

For this next page here, I used the Sweet CottageCutz Holiday Dove Die. Another beauty from the Christmas Release.

Here is another Interactive Page. For this one, I cut several of the CottageCutz Holiday Floral Spray, and used the flower to layer for each one. Love the look I was able to achieve using this beautiful die.

Next up is another Interactive Page, using envelopes to create a mini within this mini album. I used CottageCutz Vintage Bells, CottageCutz Bells, CottageCutz Woodland Pine Trees , CottageCutz Holiday Village , Stamp  and Merry Christmas from the CottageCutz Homemade Christmas Giftset.

For this page I used more of the Stamps from the Homemade Christmas Giftset, and Santa & Friends.

On this page here, I kept it pretty simple. There is room for 1 photo on the front, and then the tag will hold 2 more. 
Dies Used:

CottageCutz Ornament Nativity Card

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Oh what fun it is create with CottageCutz tonight.  Don't you just love the new Christmas release.  It's Carol here today.  My creation is using the beautiful Cottage Cutz Ornament, Nativity.
My background is a card from last years $1 bin at Michaels.  I think I only paid like 10cents for the pack at the after Christmas Clearance.  Again, I have used burlap.  I have used a lot of burlap this year.  Not only is it very popular, but I have been working all year on Wedding things and it still out on my table.  I love the texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate the visit.  Happy Crafting and see you soon!

Cards with Ornaments

Hi, all. Vladka here. 
Today I want to show you two similar cards with two beautiful CottageCutz dies: Ornament - Nativity and Ornament - Reindeer. Both die cuts are embossed with red embossing powder. I just add "Peace on Earth" expression to the first card, cut from black cardstock and embossed with white powder. 
Second card is more special, is actually a shaker card. Because of delicacy of the die cut it would be difficult to use foam tape. So, I cut out the motive one more time from fun foam. But because I have it just in green color, I colored it with red. I used just edge of foam die cut. Also here I add expression, but this time "Happy Holidays".
I hope you get inspired. I wish you all great week.
