Merry Christmoose

Christmas is finally here so I thought I would share one last Christmas project with you!

All week long I have kept running back in my craft room for some last minute stamping!

This time it was to make this card for my husband to give to someone at work.  He wanted a fun way to give a gift card and I knew that I had a few of these great
Gift Card Holder Square Scallop Card from Creative Cuts and More in my stash.

I decorated the front with this cute Holly Moose by Eureka Stamps.
And then I finished the inside with this cute saying.

This die cut card comes with the slot all ready cut out for the gift card!!!

I recommend that you always keep these Gift Card Holder Square Scallop Cards around in different colors so that you always have one on hand when needed for that last minute gift card giving occasion!

No Fries… Just the Box!


Merry Christmas!
Do you have everything wrapped and ready?!

Every year I do up a little ‘something’ for our mail carrier…this year, Lisa will get a French Fry Box from Creative Cuts and More, filled with a chocolate mint cappuccino mix, a white hot chocolate mix and candy!

The Pinecone Bazzill Canvas was already cut and scored, I just used White Tear-able Tape on the tabs…easy peasy!

I thought the cute image holding a letter, from Sassy Cheryl’s was a perfect match too.

I hope you find some Creative Cuts & More under your tree!

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year!

Have YOU stopped to have FUN today?

Hi Bloggers, it is Noelle posting today!  I did!  I highly suggest you do too! 

You can't really see the pink ink very well but it says "i had a fun time."  I ADORE the Filigree Rectangle Window A7 Card - Vertical from CC&M!  That shape makes me so happy!  It is so much fun to work with!
I embossed my Unity Kit-of-the-Month stamp and colored it with Stickles.   Quick and easy and a perfect thanks for my 14 year old who made sure today was fun!
The paper/ribbon is secure as can be with some Killer White Tear-able Tape!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hello Divas!!!  

This chipboard album comes from Creative Cuts and More and is called the Heart Shaped Window 6 x 6 AlbumThe leaf ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used Creative Inspiration Paints Aquamarine and Light Purple. This paint adds just the right amount of accent and shimmer! 
I used the gorgeous Butterfly Single and Die and Faith from Our Daily Bread Designs. I also used the Ecstasy Crafts Small Template

 The second page of our album is this picture of my husband and I! As soon as you pull a camera out, his eyes close or he grimaces!

From Creative Cuts and MoreI used the Petite Heart die cut in double sided adhesive and added Martha Stewart glitter to it. 

On my third page,  I created a pocket with a 4" x 4 1/2" card stock and scoring at a half of an inch of three sides. I mitered the edges and using Killer Red Tacky Tape adhered it to the album. I had three of my children write a note of things they love to do with Grandma and added a punch tab to them.

The stamps that I used the stamp set called Don't Worry and the ZVA Pearls Double Flourishes.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed week!

Oh, how I love a square card!

Square cards are my favorite!  Just like a 12 x 12 scrapbook page!  Add scallops and it is really more than love!  Then turn it into a Window Square Scallop Card, so fantastic and the options are endless!   
This week I picked the Oval Window Square Scallop Card, it was hard to pick just one!  So, I didn't. I picked several! 
The ribbon is from my stash and so are the buttons.  The stamps are {ippity}, the gems are from Recollections.  The twine is mine.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Chocolate Strawberry Cake Anyone?

Chocolate a strawberry cake anyone??? I love a great dessert that doesn't put on any calories! This one layer small scalloped cake from Creative Cuts and More is just the ticket.
 Let me share a couple views
I used  a flower from a tutorial I shared on You Tube Right here.
 The  light pink mini ric rac is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The crochet ribbon is from Hobby Lobby
After it was all together I thought it needed some pearls-these were from Pizzazz Aplenty.
I thought this one layer would be a fun idea for a Birthday gift ,they could keep it around till the next person has a Birthday and pass it on. Kind of like that Fruitcake you get at Christmas, but so much prettier!

Hello Divas!!!  Welcome to the Die Cut Diva Blog! This is Chrissy D!!! Every Christmas, I love to make little gifts for family and friends. These wonderful Die Cuts make it SO EASY to  create CUTE gifts!

 I used the WHITE TACKY TAPE to hold this cute Apron together. Have you tried it yet? Terry  has this available for such an AWESOME DEAL!!! Give it a try, You will LOVE IT!!!! You can tear it and it holds like the Red Tacky Tape.

I started by running the APRON POCKET Card and ran the pocket portion through the Big Shot and used the Cuttlebug folder. I then sponged White Craft Ink over the embossed area. I then stamped with the White Craft Ink the 4 in 1 Snowflakes from DRS Designs.  I wrapped some ribbon around the base stamped the cute Cocoa and Marshmallow mug on the called Labels Nine card stock. The sentiment on the inside goes perfectly with the adorable image. It is called the Cocoa and Marshmallow Greeting from DRS Designs.

I threw in some Cocoa and a Candy Candy and WAH-LAH! I have a nice, inexpensive gift that was fun to make!!! What could be better than that??? (Well, besides drinking the cocoa, that is! *wink*)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Tuck & Close Bag

Hi! I'm sharing 'just a little something' that looks like you spent hours to make, but only took a short time!

My daughter-in-law's birthday is also Christmas I always try to make her card or gift bag as far away from looking "Christmas" as possible. This time I chose a Tuck and Close Bag, XL, in Bazzill Criss Cross Forget-Me-Not from Creative Cuts and More!

It's so easy...every die cut comes pre-scored, all you have to do is assemble and decorate! This particular die cut has one seam to stick together, and that was easy with White Tear-able Tape!

I love the flaps on this box!

I'll tuck a check or giftcard inside, but it's plenty big enough to hold some large items!

Thanks for stopping!

Tis The Season

Hi there! It's Nora Anne here today sharing a Christmas tag with you! I have been following Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas, but haven't made any using his techniques. However, I was inspired by them to make a tag with some of his products.

I wanted to make a larger tag to show off more of the embossing folder, so I thought the Slash Pocket with Tag #05 would be PERFECT for this!

These are also great to attach gift cards to for the upcoming holiday season and for occasions all through out the year! Now rush on over to Creative Cuts and More to stock up on all your die cut needs!

I can't get enough of this banner album!

Hi Everyone!  It is Noelle posting today!
I apologize for the bad picture of Carlee.  It does not have a crazy film on it.  LOL
I decided for this one I am only punching one hole for a single ring.  You can see it in the corner there.  I want this one to turn just like a normal album.  The last Banner Album I did I put two rings on the top of the pennant.  One more thing I love about these shape albums.  I get to decide where to put the rings.  The possibilities are endless and I LOVE that!
I have not mentioned the Killer Tapes lately.  I also really love the red and the white tear-able.  The prices can not be beat!
There are 2 widths in the White Tear-able and 3 widths in the Red Tacky.  You can not beat the prices anywhere that I have ever seen.  Click HERE to see them all!
Thank you so much for coming by today!

Elf Pocket Card

Hi everyone, it's Taylor here today with a cute holiday project to share.  I adore the Elf on the Shelf tradition, and so do both of my kids.  My six year old looks forward to "Elfie" (great name, huh - she picked it when she was three!) coming all year and this year my 18 month old is obsessed with waving to him.  It is SO sweet.  With that said, let's get to my project for today:

I decided to make a pocket full of gift tags.  I started with my main image, and put him on the outside of my library pocket die cut from Creative Cuts and More.

The insert card has a different image on it.  I embossed both the pocket front and the insert card; the insert card I used the debossed side as the front for a little bit of fun. 

Both elves are colored with Copics and have flock on their collars, hats, and gloves.  I couldn't resist adding a bit of softness!

I tied twine around my insert card (and the gift tags as well) and will eventually add a plain cream card stock piece with a note to the recipient.  I'm just not sure who is going to get these sweet tags yet!  

Stamps: Elf on the Shelf - Nocs, Elf on the Shelf - My Regrets (Amber Ink)
Card Stock: Kraft, Cream (Bazzill), White (Neenah)
Ink: printer
Coloring Medium: Copics (R27, R29, E37, E35, E33, E11, E00, E000, C00, C2, C5, C7, C9)
Accessories: Marachino and Pea Pod twine (The Twinery)
Tools: Library Pocket #02 die cut (Creative Cuts and More)

Two Cup Day...

It's Monday!!!

If you are anything like me, Monday is always a two cup day to get me going for the new week!

I just love this adorable Changito stamp from Stampendous and had to get it to use on these fun Mug die cut cards from Creative Cuts and More.

I rounded out the top and glued down the other three edges to create a pocket in the top which is perfect for a packet of  coffee, hot chocolate or tea!  What a fun little gift for a workmate or friend!

Here's a closer look at Changito.
