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.

Winter fun

Hi, all! Vladka here.
I have another project with "In the Woods" dies. You still have a few days left to get them on the sale in the Store together with other dies.  Be sure to check it out.  Today I'm showcasing following dies: Cute PenguinEarmuffs & Mittens MiniScarf MiniWinter Boots Mini and Winter Hat Mini. 
I remember as a child how I liked the stories which had pictures of some objects instead of words. And this was idea here and so I used die cuts of Mittens, Scarf, Boots and Hat instead of words. But this is just the beginning because card has also second page. I used brad on the upper left corner which helps to open the front page on the side. Text also begins on the first page and it continues on second one where cute little penguin invite you to have some winter fun together.
This is it for today. Have fun!
