Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to the Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop. You should have arrived from Lisa's blog. If you haven't, you will definitely want to start at the beginning of the hop. You will not want to miss the other projects the Design Team/Guest Design Team members have in store for you this month. Here is the link to the beginning over at the Die Cut Diva blog. If you get lost anywhere along the way, head back to the beginning (DCD blog) where there is a complete list. From here you will continue to Lindsay's blog.

I am one of the Guest Designers for Creative Cuts and More this month. I am continuing my little treat projects here with this Creel Die Cut Box. When I saw this cute box I knew it had to be turned into a purse! I had this die cut made out of the Romance Textured Cardstock. I decorated it with Basic Grey cardstock, used a Cuttlebug Flower Die Cut and a strip of Tacky Tape sprinkled with glitter. I added some finishing touches with the Rhinestones on the corners and in the middle of the flower.

Now with every purse comes chocolate money, right? :) I had the idea to alter these chocolate coins when I saw everyone altering the round chocolate mints. I used my Spellbinders die cuts and attached them to the front and back of each coin. I stamped a Love sentiment on a couple, paper pierced the outside edges, used a heart punch and added a couple rhinestones for bling. What girl wouldn't love bling on her purse!


This is my second project, again with the treat theme. This is a Ghiraradelli chocolate bar. I used the one which comes in a box. I wrapped a plain piece of white card stock around the bar first. Next I wrapped one of CC&M's Mix and Match Mini Album Covers, cut out of Velvet Bubble Gum card stock, around the bar. I added a strip of white paper which I used a border punch on and added a scrap of the left over Album cover. I added a ribbon and tied in a bow. I used more Spellbinders die cuts and topped those off with another CC&M Small Chipboard Heart. I painted the heart with Acrylic paint and stamped the sentiment onto the heart with Brown Stazon Ink.
Now it is your turn to create something wonderful with Die Cuts! You must post a comment to each members projects AND create a project using a Valentine Themed Die Cut for your chance to win.
