Cuties Notecards

I love the Cuties Mary makes and I'm so happy she includes the printables in the extras folder.  Sometimes you just want a simple print n cut file, like these notecards I made.  All the animals are from the Thankful Cuties Collection, so adorable.

I was so inspired to make these after seeing Melanie's from The Paper Retreat, I love how she made her Christmas cards.

I also used one of the boxes from the Gimme Candy kit, I just resized to fit the notecards.  I used some Chocolate Truffle, Orangesicle and Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine on the box.

You Make Me Happy

Lori has so many beautiful cards in her store and I love pairing them with one of the 3d bags or boxes to create a wonderful gift set.  

The card is from the A2 Card Base Set 2 which has 4 beautiful card designs included.  Fill the cute little purse with some candies or resize it to fit some makeup or a gift card, so many possibilities.

The design of this card is so beautiful, I love that lace edge.  Definitely want to use it for a Christmas card.

All the embellishments are from Lori's store, except for the label which is from the Silhouette Online Store.  The flower is the 3D Flower 5, the butterflies are from the Layered Shapes set and the sentiment comes in the You Make Me Laugh set.

For the flap of the purse I used one of the labels that came in the same set I used on the card, just cut it in half and added the cute little button brad.  The beautiful digital paper I used on both projects is from Echo Park's Beautiful Life collection.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my project!

PaperHaus Magazine By The Sea

I was so excited to have my By The Sea project published in the summer edition of PaperHaus Magazine.  There's so many wonderful projects in the magazine, make sure you check it out.

For the frame I used SVGCuts Sew Crafty kit, it's my go to for shadow box frames, I just fold the flaps inside, enlarge the front piece and glue it to the inside of the frame.

The elements I used to decorate are from Miss Kate Cuttables, I combined two different sets, Anchors Aweigh and By The Sea.

And of course I had to use some Nautical Trendy Twine to complete my project!!

Off To See The Fireworks

Here's my design team project for SVGCuts, a cute 4th of July card and treat bag.  When I was designing the card I wanted that old fashion patriotic feel, like the kids were off to see the fireworks and I couldn't resist adding that adorable dalmatian!

Love the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine and the stamp sentiments from Jaded Blossom's Celebrate America stamp set, I'm going to miss making 4th of July projects!

The fence card is from SVGCuts kit Chamomile Friendship Cards, this is such a great kit to have, you can decorate in so many different ways. The children are from the Made in the USA kit, dalmatian from Patriotic Parade and the wagon is from Crisp Days of Fall.  I also use both Uncle Sam's Extravaganza collections Part1 and Part2 for the bunting and scalloped circle.

This star bag is actually from the Christmas Gift Bags and Boxes kit which also has a bag shaped as presents that would be great decorated for a birthday.  The rosette pieces are all from the Vintage Paper Rosettes kit.  The paper is from Lori Whitlock's Patriotic Picnic digital collection.

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project!
