Merry and Bright!

Good morning everyone! :)
This will be my second year at attempting to make all of my own Christmas cards to give to family, friends and clients. This is what I like to call a nice clean and simple design. Very easy to make and fast!
I made this card (size A2) by cutting a 8.5x11 sheet of card stock in half. I then layered the green and red card stock and cut a piece of white card stock for the sentiment. The circles were punched and then stickers applied. The gems were applied with glue dots and after inking the edges of the card I was done! Quick and cute! I love making cards! :)
Here's a list of the products I used or variations you can find in our store, thanks for looking!

Cutters Creek Design Team Holiday Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Cutters Creek Design Team Holiday Blog Hop! We want you to hop along with us and play for some awesome Blog Candy. The objective for our Blog Hop this weekend is to provide some inspiration to help you get your holiday crafting underway! Our Design Team has come up with some fabulous projects and we have a little bit of everything, from cards to gift ideas, and home d├ęcor items. So we invite you to hop along with us and get your creative juices flowing!

I've decided to go with a home decor project that's easy, fun and fast!
I figured the holidays that are coming up are the ones that people most likely have parties and have family and friends over for dinner. You might not be able to tell by the picture but, that is a drink coaster I made from a ceramic bathroom tile! Isn't it cute?!?!? :) These are inexpensive at the hardware store and they come in a variety of colors, but if they don't have the color you want, you can always paint them! I love it!!
Here's some for when the family comes over for Christmas dinner! As easy as 1, 2, 3! And you don't have to stop there...
I made this one for my Kevin. Now he has a coaster to match his cup of his favorite team!
And of course I had to make at least one for myself! :) They make great gifts and you are only limited to your imagination! I hope this project has inspired you! Thanks for looking!!! :)


Here is the complete blog hop line up in case you get lost along the way:

Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone! Here's a quick and cute little sign I made to put on my front door for the Halloween season.

I know I've said it before, but I will say it again......I LOVE MY eCRAFT PURPLEBERRY!!!! :)
I was really stumped on what to create. When I came in the house yesterday and realized I hadn't decorated my door for the holiday yet, that's when it hit me to make a Halloween sign.
I used eCraft to cut the title and then I went from there. After layering the different color card stock, I used some Stickles-Black Diamond to add little dots around as a border.



 
 I downloaded and cut the little ghost and the jack-o-lantern. I also used Mustard Seed Distress Stickles to enhance jack's eyes and winning smile! The dangling spiders at the bottom of the sign is a piece of ribbon I received in a swap last year. I really like how this turned out and I had such fun creating it this morning! Thanks for looking!!!! :)

Sister Friend


Hello everyone! Here's a layout I did of one of my close friends using some scrap papers from my stash. Sometimes it's hard putting a lo together that did not come in  a kit, but it sure is rewarding when you can! :) Thanks for looking!

Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Hello everyone!
Here's a quick Christmas card I made. It really didn't take me that long and with minimal supplies. Great time saver! :)
My goal was to design this to look like a wrapped present. The background paper is from my stash and I used Distressed Ink on the edges of the card base. After cutting out a couple of solid color strips of card stock, I used my eCraft Purpleberry to cut the circle and I attached my hand tied ribbon bow using Scor tape.
Thanks for looking! :)
