Mini Album Tin Kit

Creative Cuts & More has these round and rectangular MINI ALBUM & TIN KITS.
I made mine into a super cute banner, unfortunately, the ribbons made it too bulky so I can't fit it back into the tin (not shown here). That just means I can make something else for the tin....yeay!

Diva Dresses

These dresses are from one of the newer dies from Creative Cuts & More, the Dress Box die. It's so easy, and very versatile!

My wedding dress was very easy to make. It was cut from Bazzill Smoothies Coconut Swirl. The only embellishments used on the project are Prima Marketing's new Say it in Studs self-adhesive embellishments. The studs were arranged in an ornate frame pattern. I used my sharp Tonic snips to cut only certain parts of the frame to create the bodice, waist, and hem adornments.

Because these studs are self-adhesive, they were very easy to adhere. They're nice quality, too, and the segments held together very nicely.

My other sample was also very easy to put together. This next dress is cut from BasicGrey patterned cardstock from the Two Scoops collection and tied with a thin pink grosgrain ribbon. I made this to show that this die is not just for weddings!

Dresses cut from other patterns and other colors could be used for all sorts of occasions:
  • Pretty floral dresses for Mother's Day, Tea Parties, Bridal Showers
  • Matching dresses for Bridesmaid gifts
  • Pastels for pretty Easter Dresses
  • Dresses in school colors for graduations
  • Dresses in sorority colors for Bid Day, Initiations and other special occasions
  • Red or purple dresses for Red Hat events
  • White dresses for Confirmations, Baptisms, First Communion, etc.
  • Pink and/or sparkly dresses for "Princess" party favors
  • Black, scary dresses for witches at Halloween
  • A whole variety of dresses for favors at an Oscar party or a Mardi Gras/Costume party
  • Pretty dresses for prom or homecoming
  • Gold or silver dresses for 25th or 50th Anniversary parties
The possibilities with this dress are endless! Creative Cuts & More carries a few patterned papers. However, you can also have CC&M cut papers that you send in -- and they cut it for a reasonable cutting fee. You can visit the Contact Us page to inquire via e-mail or by phone.

Acetate in August

Welcome to our big August Acetate Blog Hop! We're shining our spotlight on the clear plastic acetate material that makes terrific cards, boxes, embellishments, and more. It can be stamped on, painted, and embossed -- which makes it a very fun, versatile choice for any project.

Let's start this party with some new, never-before-seen samples made with acetate components of our adorable Birthday Boy Card Kit, designed by Pam Smerker:

And here are a few more from the kits:

And here we have a card from Dusty Patrick. It is the A2 Acetate Card plus straight frame in black cardstock. The rubons are from Basic Grey.

Another sample is this card by Trish Estrella. It is the A2 Gate Fold Crescent Card with Band in Acetate. The stamps are from Fancy Pants.

And now for some fun news! We're getting ready to show off a fabulous new designer kit very soon -- and we're offering one up as a prize. It's so new, we don't even have a photo yet! It's the new Sealife 8"x8" Album Kit. It uses the adorable Doodlebug papers and embellishments, and includes chipboard, cardstock and acetate pages. Here are the four different ways to win it:
