WEDDING MATCHBOX - PARTY FAVORS from Guest Designer Patti West

Hello Everyone - HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! For our wonderful GUEST DESIGNER Patti's fourth project she chose to alter the matchbox. The matchbox comes in a variety of colors & textures, including metallic cardstock. One can easily find the perfect color to match your party theme!! You can see the matchbox #01 here.

Patti wanted my first box to be simple, yet classy. Using the metallic cs gave her the classy look she was going for. For the simple text, she used her computer to type "Kate & Tim", printed on white bazzill, then mounted on metallic cs and pop dotted to the matchbox. So simple and quick too! Wouldn't these make pretty engagement party or wedding reception favors?

I hope you've enjoyed Patti's Creative Cuts & More project. Check out her blog for another project!
A BIG Thank you, to Patti for being our Guest Designer. We really enjoyed her work!

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

THANK YOU!!! So Very much!

Hi Everyone! It's Noelle posting today! I am always making Thank You cards! I am so lucky to have so many occasions that need a Thank You card! I LOVE LOVE LOVE how easy it is to make them with things from Creative Cuts and More! This particular 5 1/4" Square card is one of my favorites! The sticker 'brads', ribbon and label are from my stash. I used 2 of these value stamps from Basic Grey!

We have a guest designer today! Her name is Carlee and she is 2 1/2 years old! My girls make thank you cards just as soon as their little fingers can manage it! Carlee picked out the Scallop Border A2 Card. It's another one of my favorites! Her embellishment of choice is Stickers!
Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to always send a Thank You card! Creative Cuts & More has a whole bunch to choose from!! Handmade cards are so easy a 2 year old can do it. :-)
Happy Shopping!

Fun Father's Day Gift Idea

Hello! Mustangkayla here sharing a fun project today. I have seen this idea some where in blog land and am lifting it. Truth be told I've seen it a handful of times and that is why I can't pin point the exact blog or site I saw it on.This is a fish tackle box. What else could I possibly use but the fabulous Cosmo Cricket to alter it? The Boyfriend line was just perfect. All the papers are from Cosmo Cricket as well as the sentiment alphas. The sentiment is on the Antique Label. We have a fun new die cut, the Scalloped Rectangle Frame that I had cut in velvet! I also had the Moose cut in velvet. If you need specific colors let me know...I can definitely track them down! The velvet was very fun to work with and added a little flair and texture.
I plan on filling it with little candies, but thought I'd wait a little closer to Father's day so they would be fresh! I hope you enjoyed my project today! This was very quick and easy to do! I think they make great gifts for any occasion or even just because! I saw one filled with paper clips, erasers and such for a teachers and thought that a great idea!

Candy Treats!

Hi Everyone!
It's Noelle posting today with her favorite tiny helper!
We LOVE this Scallop Purse! Carlee loves a good purse but we had so much fun making this one! It is big enough to hold fruit snacks, candy, a sucker and "the yummy" [Lip Smacker]! This purse doesn't even need Killer Red Tape! You just have to fold it and tuck in the tab to close it! Carlee picked out a chipboard flower and we painted it with Making Memories Clear Glitter paint. It's really sparkly. Then she picked out pink Stickles and pink letters because everything really should be pink. When I dug out that giant crystal and glued it on she got so excited you would think it was a real diamond!
She loved making this purse! She even gave it a kiss! Lucky purse!

Carlee is only 2 1/2 now, but when she hits pre-school we will be making this purse for all the girls in her glass. We can pick a bag for the boys! We LOVE gifts that are so easy a 2 year old can make them!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! Its Kayla here to share a fun project today. I got this cute Square Box with Square Window to play with. I'm a big fan of adding pictures to projects and making mini's out of things, so thats just what I did.

I put it together with Tacky Tape from the CC&M store. Terry has the best prices on that stuff and it is fantastic for boxes. I then added some border stickers to the lid.

Just another view. I tried to make the front of the mini pop out of the lid a bit.

I love this flower. I inked the edges and went over it with some Crackle medium from Ranger. I think it gives it a fun look. I used a sticker for the flower center and covered it with liquid glass.
One of my husbands co-workers is moving away. I thought this would be perfect for her. The front is perfect for a few pictures and all the co-workers could sign the back. A great little memento to send her off with!

Don't forget we have blog hop coming up to celebrate the launch of our new site! You'll definitely want to come back for that!

Featuring Guest Designer: Patti West

Hello Everyone!
We did NOT have a Guest Designer last month as we are preparing to launch the NEW and IMPROVED Wonderful Website! However, this month, we are so excited to share with you our Guest Designer, the very talented Patti West! You can see MORE of her wonderful work HERE.

The first piece she worked with is the Flower window w/scalloped edge card (this is a brand new die cut which will be available at the new website on May 17th!) What makes this card so fun is it's already started for arrives full of inspiration! The flower cut out and scalloped edge make for great jumping off points.

~happy birthday~

The Making Memories pp and letters are from the April Citrus Tree Studio kit. Patti used MM paint on a GCD Studios chip butterfly and then sprinkled some glitter on top. The "birthday" stamp is by Stampin' Up. She machine zig zag stitched the pp behind the flower cut out and then added a strip of pp to the top. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Creative Cuts and More Popcorn Box

This darling box is a die cut from Creative Cuts and More. It's called a Popcorn Box. I love the shape of it, and wanted to work with it, but I wanted to do something sophisticated, so I had them cut it in my favorite Amethyst Stardream cardstock. They have dozens of choices! I embossed it with SU!'s Print Pattern. I did it one section at a time, masking the others so they didn't get messed up. I added a fat dollop of Black Diamond Stickles in all the blank triangles. The stamp is a SeeD's set, I embossed it in black and colored with my markers and a wc brush as usual.
