Blog Hop & New Dies!

Welcome to our first ever BLOG HOP! At the end of this post, we'll describe our hop and tell you how you can win blog candy at each blog in the hop!

We're so excited to show you all the fun projects we've been creating with love & weddings in mind -- and it's been even more fun because we have four new dies to show off: Dress Box, Tuxedo Box, Chair Box, and A2 Scalloped Border Card.

Here are Deb McNett's interpretation of the Dress Box which she had cut from Crystal White Stardream Metallic Cardstock and covered with lace, and the Tuxedo Box cut from Onyx Stardream Metallic Cardstock.


Next up is an entirely different take on the same two boxes from Andrea Ruccolo. Her Dress Box is cut from Ice Gold Curious Metallic Cardstock and Tuxedo Box is cut from Onyx Stardream Metallic Cardstock.


This wonderful ensemble of wedding items was created by Judy DiScipio. What creative ideas! In addition to favors, she created some beautiful cards. One card is the Creative Cuts & More exclusive Shoe Card.


Diane Koerner made this beautiful cake using multiples of the Cake Slice Box. They were cut from Papaya Blast Bazzill Smoothies Cardstock. (Note: You can also choose to purchase the Cake Slice Boxes by the set.)

Our next samples are cake slices created by Kat Salmon, cut from Aqua Bazzill and Lagoon Bazzill respectively.


Next we have two fun samples from Deb Oberg, who served as a Guest Designer during the month of February. Her Tuxedo Box was cut from Black Tie Bazzill Bling.


And this favor box from Deb is one of our exclusives, the Peek-a-View Box cut from Anthracite Stardream Metallic paper. It is adorned with Flower #6 Small cut from Kunzite & Amethyst Stardream Metallics and Lavender Velvet paper. Beautiful!



We hope you've enjoyed looking at these samples! We have even more for you! Each of our blogging DT members have additional samples posted on their blogs now, and they're each offering BLOG CANDY! Start here at Hop #1 with Angie Pearl.

At the end of the hop, Pam will direct you back here for the chance to win one more prize. Leave a comment on this post with the name of your favorite new die or your favorite project you saw during today's blog hop. Entries will be accepted through 11:59PM Mountain Time on Thursday, March 5th and the winner of a $15 gift certificate to Creative Cuts & More will be posted the following day.

Now that you've seen all of our wedding-inspired projects, we'd like to see yours! Check back later in the week for details on our upcoming customer challenge.

Thank you & Happy Hopping!

Hi Terry!! These are all exquisite! Each one is a treasure!! I wanted to LYK that I can't get Lila's link on Kim's blog to work. It could be me, but the link could be bad, too.

Smullis said...

I really loved all of the projects, the ladies all did a great job! My favorite has to be the trio of boxes Pam made, very classy and great use of the boxes. Thanks for the chance to win some great stuff!!!

dk.denton said...

This blog hop was so much fun. I loved seeing how different each box was. Really helped give me ideas for my own boxes.

KanataNewf said...

Of the new diecuts, I do like the A2 scalloped card...being a card-maker and all. But I truly LOVE the cake slice. It is by far my fave!

Patti J said...

OMY - How much fun!!!

Eva said...

Ohhh...these are just gorgeous!!!! I just made a slice of cake, too.

Eva said...

Ok, I came back and I am in love with the dress, that is so much a must have diecut!!! So many gorgeous creations, there is no way I could pick a favorite, as they are all gorgeous!

Bonnie Sherwood said...

I had a lot of fun looking at all of the wonderful creations on the sites. I love the dresses, and also the peekaboo box since that could be used for so much.
Thanks,

It is amazing to see everyones creative work and how they are all so different. The dresses are beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win.

CarolG said...

Everyone did such a great job. I think my favorites were the scalloped dress card with the purple iris folding (sorry I forgot the blog name) and Pam's trio of boxes. Thanks for the chance here and along the way to win the blog candy.

Denise said...

Thank you for this blog hop, all the designs are so impressive. I love the first dress on this page, I love the train. But I think my favorite is the trio of boxes from Paper ask askew.

Jenniwren32 said...

I couldn't possibly pick one favorite project they were all sooooo GORGEOUS!! The new die-cut I'm in love with though, is the dress box!

Heidi said...

Ok, this was fun. I have never done a blog hop before. I loved everyone's ideas and different ways they did the wedding dress boxes. My favorite thing I saw, had to be on the last blog with the red and white cake boxes. I loved the colors, the way there were alternating, and two layers of them. What a fun way to decorate for any type of party....adorable, usable, and giveawayble (if that is a word! LOL).

Thans for doing this!

Beautiful work!

RynMattsMom said...

Hi All the projects were SOOOOO beautiful it is hard to choose 1 favorite- but I have to say I love Linsday's cards the best- they were so elegant! Thanks so much for the blog hop- how fun!! :) Linda

Ginger said...

These are all so creative, but I do like the cake slice the best. Thanks for starting this blog hop, to show off everyones, ideas.

Sharon said...

what wonderful work

Cammy said...

What great projects! I really love the dress die since it is so customizable. Love the tux and chair as well.

Boni said...

What a wonderful way to start the day! I loved everything but the two that stick out for me are the first impression I got from the dress with the studs and the cake. Who doesn't love cake? Awesome job ladies can't wait to get my hands on some die cuts and start 'dressing' them up!!

Melissa said...

I love them all, but my favorite was the dress box. So many possibilities, all elegant and beautiful! sullymel13@yahoo.com

Stephanie Smith said...

I would have to say my favorite is the dress box, and my favorite use of it throughout the blogs was Andrea Ruccolo's example on this post. The skirt was just so whimsy. I loved it. Thanks for the chance to win.

paradise45 said...

All the creations were absolutly stunning, each with their unique styles and ideas! My favorite was Pamela's from Paper Askew Studio. I loved the red & white color combo and the chair. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sharon said...

These are all so wonderful!! Hats off to all of the design team!!
I have to admit I am in love with the wedding dress and tuxedo box die cuts!!
Sensational!!

craftaddict said...

Great blogs, was going to wait till the morning to look but had a peek at a few tonight.

Kendra - The Craft Addict said...

Hey, thanks for the chance to win some pretty cool stuff! I LOVE the Andrea Ruccolo's dress... very beautiful (not that the rest weren't, but that's my fav so far). I may be back with another still!

Dawn said...

Thank you all, so very much. My DD is getting merried next year and I am so inspired to create something special for her. I have no clue where I'll start, but I plan to try several of the ideas I've seen. I think my favorite die cut was the card. It has so many personalities.

Connie N. said...

This was so much fun for my "first" blog hop! How wonderful to see all the different ideas for the same project. I loved them all and it wouldn't be fair to pick just one!

Anonymous said...

Such a feast for the ideas, but I think Lila's bride & groom were my personal favorite!
Thanks for the blog hop!

My favorite has to be the dress, it can be used for different occasions.

craftaddict said...

Thanks for a great blog hop, my first one, and I enjoyed looking at all your creations. Thanks also for the inspiration. Difficult to choose a favourite but I think it is the A2 scalloped card with the cut out heart, beautiful.

Oh I loved all of them, do I really have to pick. If I had to I'd pick Pamela's "cheery, summery, red and white polka dot two tier wedding cake". So yummy, I could just eat it.

Thanks for the blog hop. Enjoyed every moment of it and hopefully I win some candy so I can play too. Thanks much.
