I hopped all around but 1 blog was not posted yet:( I'll try and hop back by later today.

For the question... I would love to see boxes or containers made with the die cuts as I just love little containers.

Also I need to look around but a video on using die cuts with many pieces would be helpful to me

jrugg said...

Great blog hop! I would like to see more layouts using the cottage dies, especially the ones with the peachy keen faces!

Lorie said...

So exited to see all the creations!

MiamiKel said...

absolutely beautiful Cottage Cutz creations all around!! so looking forward to the beauty of Spring on the blogs :)

Olivia said...

Of course! Can or wait to see the fabulous creations.

Olivia said...

Grat job on the blog hop! Your DT did. Fabulous job showcasing the amazing dies you have.

I am way behind on the Copic marker scene. There are so many Cottage Cutz that look fabulous shaded, and colored with the Copics. I would like to learn how to do that. Video's and instructions would be great. I also would like to see some quick and cute small projects like pins and hair embellishments--things that can be made in a day. Thank you for all the fabulous project shared today with my favorite dies!

Miss Marie said...

Great hop! All the ladies are soooo talented. (I can't wait to lift some of the ideas.)

I would love to see Cottage Cutz put out a ZOO THEME collection. I simply adore all of your animal dies!

Glora said...

Wow, the hop was awesome! What a talented group of designers! I love cards so this was awesome. But I also love to see scrapbook layouts and 3D items too (like boxes, home decor etc). So I would definitely say have them keep doing more of the same and to add an occasional 3D item of layout. AMAZING job everyone! Hugs - Glora

Finished the blog hop. What beautiful creations. Super talented ladies and learned something from each blog.
I would like to see a scrapbook page using any of the dies (since I have so many, lol). I see cards a lot but would love to see a scrapbook page. Thank you ladies for sharing your great talent!

Linda said...

I visited all the wonderful blogs! I can never get enough 3-D projects! Would love to see more.

momof5sons said...

I loved your blog hop. All your designers are very talented ladies. They did a great job on showing what can be made with your great dies. I would like to see more altered items, frame dies and also some small different shape box dies.

Percilla G said...

Ok I visited everyone and was so impressed. Nice job everyone

Karen said...

Enjoyed viewing all the cards! It seems like there is more and more use of Copic markers for shading and less use of chalk. How do you begin to use Copics? Would like to see these showcased on how-to videos. Also how to pick the right color for shading.

Anita said...

What an amazing hop! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the inspiration from the DT.

Happyscrapin said...

AMAZING hop!!!! Every DT did a stunning project to show your dies! This is the first time I have seen Cottage Cut dies and am so in love with them, so to answer your question since I am new to your blog and dies I would love to see more projects, (cards,layouts) and videos using your amazing dies!

StaceyM said...

I hopped around to all of the blogs and really enjoyed the creations. I would like to see videos on your site and more ideas with PK stamps using your dies. :)

Heidi said...

WOW that was exhilarating and inspirational. I loved how there were so many different dies used, and how so may of the DT used a variety together. I know my list has grown.

What else I would like to see? I specifically would love to see the snow globe with some other pieces that will fit, or multiple dies together- I love this.

Thanks! Heidi

Heather said...

What a great hop. It is the first I have had time to do all year. Seriously!! So many great cards!! I am fairly new to Cottage Cutz so I love to see all the ideas. I am pretty partial to card and layout ideas. Thanks so much for all the inspirations!

Darlene said...

Congratulations to the entire DT for such fabulous creations! I am new to Cottage Cuts, found out about you via Kelly's blog and promptly went and completed the hop. Boy am I ever glad that I did!!

What would I like to see? Hmmm so many options with these dies. Maybe some scenic sympathy/thinking of you type of cards. I can always use some inspiration for those.

Or some masculine cards, always need some inspiration for those as well.

Seriously, I have just become a fan of your dies, so will be checking back regularly for ideas & shopping!

Thank you.

Die Cut Diva said...

I would like to see showcased -- some more scene cards where many dies and parts are used. I would also like to see more projects using the stores and buildings etc.
Loved the blog hop -- great projects and made me add a few more dies to my wish list. Congrats to the entire design team for creating such inspiring projects.
I have finished the entire blog hop and left a comment on everyone's blog.

Dianne said...

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas today on the blog hop. I loved seeing everyone’s art and it was very inspiring.
My wish list for dies in the future would be… Travel, Baby, Wedding, Zoo, and more Christmas things. Not a little list sorry I have big needs!!! I love your dies thank you again for all the ideas today.

Bonnie said...

What a terrific hop!! I'm so glad I was able to see all the wonderful projects. As much as I love cards, I would like to see some other types of projects too using these fun dies. Keep up the good work!!

Noelle Reese said...

What a talented group of ladies! I loved your hop! Such fantastic ideas! I would love to see more of my all time favorite KITCHEN collection. Thank you for the chance to win Joanne!!

Gosh, the question on the diecuts is a hard one b/c there are already so many wonderful ones. I am a diecut-aholic, so anything you come up with would be fantastic for me. I really love a French flair, so anything in that arena would be great. I like it when stamps are coordinated with diecuts too. That's about it. The creations are DYNAMITE and I will jump on the blog hop now!

What a fun and inspiring time I had on your blog hop! Such talented and creative ladies...thank you so much for the wonderful journey!
My fave dies (and the ones I always buy from Cottage Cutz) are the ones with a cute animal (dog, cat, mouse, bunny, etc) either dressed up to look adorable or in a cute scene...mouse in teacup, cat in shoe, etc. These are UNIQUE to your company...no one else does these...and I love them the most! I hope to continue to see more of these in the future. Also, I love most when you have a separate cut for the nose and eyes instead of an embossed indentation on the head cut! Thank you so much!

gobeagirl said...

Wow, I just finished the blog hop and I am so glad that I stopped over at Cindy's this morning. I have not heard of your dies until today, so I don't know what else I would like to see, but I do know that as soon as I get some money (waiting on payday as always :o)) I am so going to check out everything you have as it seems that your dies make very crisp cuts and I love, love what I have seen today on the hop. ADORABLE!!! Thanks to everyone that made a project and shared. I really enjoyed them all. Hugs, Lisa G

Julie Lane said...

Had to delete my other comment because I forgot to answer the question!! Okay!
I haven't really been around long enough to know what the design team does on a regular basis, but, Projects with lotz of detail is always worth taking the time to explore :o)
Thanks!

Anne said...

Great job on the blog hop. Your DT's did a fantastic job showing your dies. They were all so beautiful. The answer to your question is I would like to see more cards using cottage dies w/copic markers and peachy keen faces. Would love more instruction on the copics.
