CottageCutz Victorian Birdcage

 Greetings friends and papercrafters. It's Carol here. For today's creation for CottageCutz dies is this lovely card using the Victorian Birdcage, Flourish Bird Corner and the Flourish Vine.
 Don''t you love the background paper.  It has little bird cages.  I just had to use it-it goes along so well with the theme.  Look at the beautiful lines and scrolls in the birdcage.  It's so pretty.  I painted it with glue and sprinkled with glitter.
 You can see the bird flourish corner here.  This is a die you will find yourself using a lot.  I know I will with all the birds are use in my creations. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this creation.  It is appreciated very much.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.  These are the dies used.

This is it for today, I wish you good start in new week.

Shabby Chic Butterfly Post-it notepad

 Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to all!
Today I'm posting an extra post to share a Post-it Notepad I made using CottageCutz Dies,for a dear friend. We celebrated Janna's Birthday Yesterday at my house, with a luncheon and lots of crafty fun!

 I just had to use this beautiful CottageCutz Victorian Butterfly Flourish as I love airbrushing them. I also added some glitter in a couple of pink colors to give it some bling. Love the way it looks in person!
The card base was cut on the cricut, and then just added some circle layers in one of my favorite Bazzill Patterns, and in a Polka dot blue. Next I added some Sweetheart Blossoms, branches, and a little seam binding to complete my Post -it notepad for today.
 I also went through my stash of stamps, and found a couple of sweet ones, that were perfect for her card/post-it.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs to all,

CottageCutz Victorian Gift Box

 Greetings friends and papercrafters.  Today's it's Carol with a  Cottage Cutz creation that is a gift box made with the beautiful dies from the "Victorian Release".  The dies from this release have gorgeous scrolls and sweeping lines.  They make an elegant addition to any creation.
The box was created with the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board.  All the corners are embellished with the Butterfly Flourish Vine.  Tim Holtz distress ink Broken China and Stormy skies were used to color these vines.
On two of the sides the Fancy Victorian Butterfly accents the gift box.  The butterflies were painted with glue and sprinkled with sparkling glitter.
The Fancy Victorian Frame die was used under the cabbage rose along with the sweet Butterfly die from the Petite's collection.  The Bella Leafy Branch die is under the rose.
You can see how you can make your gift boxes shine as the star of the gift giving by dressing the boxes up with the gorgeous CottageCutz dies from The Scrapping Cottage.  Thank you so much for viewing this project today.  Until next time,  Happy Crafting.  See You Soon.
Here are the dies used:

Roses and Ornate Fence

Hi, all! Vladka is here today!
Spring is so beautiful with all blossoms, it gives romantic hint and I like the view on different gardens and houses with all these flowers and greenery. To illustrate this on my card a little bit, I used new Ornate Fence and Victorian Rose Vine dies. 
Fence was cut out from black cardstock and roses were colored with Copics this time. Sentiment is modified a little bit - I used Friends die cut instead of this part of the stamp. Background is stamped with text stamp and distressed with Walnut stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks and with touch of white tempera. 
Have a great weekend!
