We have TWO people sharing GORGEOUS work here on our Die Cut Diva Blog...

The first projects I will be sharing are from the very talented Joan Ervin. She was our Guest Designer for the month of June. 

These are just a few of the wonderful die cuts from Creative Cuts & More and they are all just perfect for a bride!! 





The card is a 5x7 size with the little dress cutout window. Joan added some lace to a piece of scrap white paper and then taped it to the backside of the window. A cover piece will cover the inside. The flower corsage consists of sheer ribbon, silver cording, and the sugared rose from Prima. The Slice Tag Maker heart rims are by Making Memories and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Simple Little Things. A pearl flourish and the silvercording and pearl on the dress finish it off. 
The corsage on the cake slice was created like the one on the card. Pearl trim and pearl flourishes were also added to the sides and top. The is the cutest little box that opens in the back and would be perfect for wedding favors or bridal shower treats.
The little dress and tuxedo boxes are just so adorable...wouldn't they look cute as favors on the guests tables, as decorations on the guest book table, or even on the food tables....toooo fun!!!

Kim from the Scrap-a-Teeny Girls really out-did herself this month! (Of course it helps that she attended a fun wedding in Napa recently!!) Look at this wonderful wedding ensemble she created! An adorable little box that could be used for momentoes or favors, a sweet wedding card & an amazing album!! All with the great dies available at Creative Cuts & More!!

 First, she worked with the Color Block A7 Scallop Card to create this wonderful wedding card:


Instead of mounting her color block items on the inside of the card, Kim decided to mount them all on cardstock first and then place them inside the card. This allowed more space for her sentiments inside! 



This is the wonderful Bride & Groom silhouette die that comes in 2 sizes (not on the site yet, just contact Terry if you are interested in some of these!) in any color you want!



 After that, Kim created this adorable little box using the Dress Window Square Box #01 by covering the dress cut-out on the inside with some pretty patterned paper; embellishing the dress with pearls. After assembling the box with Killer Red Tacky Tape, she attached the 3 fabric flowers from her stash.

Finally, she worked on the album. Now, this is no ordinary album! It is actually FOUR of the Dress Window A7 Scallop Cards linked together!!!

After adhering the edges of the cards together in such a way as to form an accordian, Kim began to place her photos, stickers, DIES embellishments! It really is a wonderful album; a great keepsake for years to come!!

(front side. Dies used here: Bride & Groom, Rings  of course, 
the dress cutouts from the Cards!)

(back side. No CCM dies were used here - just the Cards.)
The dress card also comes in several other sizes layouts, as well as a 6x6 or 8x8 Album from CC&M! There really are so many amazing dies to choose from for any of your projects & remember to "think outside the box!" You never know what kind of creative concoction you might come up with!!


Do you want to see more??? Do you want to learn how Kim embellished a couple of the dresses on the Cards or how she used a Hinge in such a clever way? 
Well, you'll just have to check back here next week for more!!!


Have fun and don't forget to come back for your chance to win!

Steph Zerbe said...

Joan, that is an amazingly beautiful ensemble. I love the touch of teal, all the gorgeous texture and the cake slice looks good enough to eat. Really, it does!!!
And this album by Kim is so inventive! You are so creative. Love this ensemble!!

The most problematic part of gifts is when it comes to choosing them. You usually end up all confused and lost. The most important bit is to look for something that your loved ones would really appreciate. It certainly does not mean that they have to extremely costly items. The thought behind it will be important. On the other hand, inexpensive does not mean something totally trivial either. You need to let loose that creative streak in you to find something interesting as well as innovative.
