CottageCutz Baby Shower Candy Holders

Greetings everybody!  Today is a creation using the beautiful Baby release from CottageCutz.  Aren't they just darling.  The We R Memory Keepers Candy board was used to create these sweet little candy holders.  The combination of the board and pretty CottageCutz dies make a gorgeous baby shower favor.
The first one is made with the Duck Pull Toy Die.  It is mounted on a labels die and that is mounted on a rosette.  A little banner with the Expressions "Baby" die rounds out this very lovely little candy holder.
Next we have this sweet little Baby Elephant die.  Now tell me how cute is that?  Right!  It was create exactly like the duck one.  Imagine all the possibilities with the baby animal dies in the 2014 Baby release.  You could make all the candy holders the same but use different animals.  Super sweet and very easy.
Thank you for stopping by today.  It was a pleasure to show you my latest creation.  Hope this inspires you to create something lovely for you next baby shower.  Until next time.  Happy Crafting and see you soon.

CottageCutz Baby Boy Shower Banner

Greetings everyone and welcome to a CottageCutz Design Team post.  Today the creation is this lovely Baby Boy Shower banner.  Isn't this cute for a decoration for a baby shower!  This is super fun to create and display using a variety of pretty CottageCutz dies from the 2014 Baby collection
The banner was created with the Spellbinders Shapabilities Nested-Lacy Pennants.  That is actually the base, but there are many layers used to make it as big as and full as you see here.  For the outside lace edge the CottageCutz Fancy Lace Border was used.  It only needed one cut for each side and one for the top that was cut to fit.  For this banner the Baby Buggy Mini was used along with the Bow Mini.  The Leafy Branch Mini was used under the flower accents.
For the middle Banner the Bib Mini, Bow Mini, and Leafy Branch Mini are featured.  The Baby Boy Shower words used are from the CottageCutz Expressions release.
For the last section of the banner Sippy Cup Mini, Bow Mini, and Leafy Branch Mini complete the project.  The banners are tied together with seam binding and bows are created on each end and decorated with matching roses and CottageCutz Leafy Branch Mini.
Hope you have enjoyed viewing my project for today and it brings you some ideas for creating your own sweet Baby Shower decorations.  This would also be lovely hanging in the baby's room.  Just use different word dies or perhaps the baby's name.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies used:

CottageCutz Baby Block Card

 Welcome to another CottageCutz creation today.  CottageCutz has an  awesome baby die release that has some of the cuties dies you have ever seen.  Today this card is showcasing the Blocks and Fancy Baby Corner from that collection.  The Bella Leafy Branch and the Fancy Lace Border rounds out the CottageCutz dies used on this sweet card.
Isn't this Fancy Baby Corner super cute.  Just had to share a close up of the sweet little "Bear", pins and little duckies on there.  It's adorable.  Love the blocks too-they are so versatile.  As always, these dies cut through paper as smooth as butter.   Not only that, but they are so fun to work with!

Thank you so much for dropping by today to view this fun baby card.  Be sure to check out the Baby release.  There are so many cute images to chose from.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.
NOTE:  SANDRA C-since I couldn't find a way to contact you, I will tell you this paper is call The Blossom Song and is an old DCWV stack I found at Michael's and have had for a while.  Thanks for asking.

Coffin Wedding Favor

 Do you remember this little number back in June?  Well, this is another little something I included in the package to a friend of mine that is getting married on Halloween.  This was just an extreme BLAST to put together.  I just love a good challenge.
 Let's make no "Bones" about it.  I am a Dollar store addict.  These little skeletons are something I picked up at the dollar store maybe a year or two ago.  I gave the Bride a Veil and the Groom a Bow Tie.  The white lace looking trim around the coffin are various Martha Stewart Halloween punches.
 There is a fence behind the couple that helps them sit up properly.  The roses were made with watercolor paper dipped in distress ink and tipped with black.  The box is something I got at Michael's a couple years ago.  I want to get one that plays spooky music when you open it!!!  lol
I included the Wedding Couples name and date of marriage on the inside  I just love this.  I want to make one just for my own Halloween decorations.  So a super cool fun project.  Hope you like it.  See you soon.

CottageCutz Post-It Note Holder

 Greetings and welcome to another CottageCutz creation.  So happy you stopped by.  It's been a while and I owe you all a visit.  My husband has been going through medical procedures that had kept us hopping.  It's tough getting old, Ill tell ya!!!!  lol 
My project today is a Post-It note holder made with the very versatile Fancy Envelope die.  Isn't it cute and it's really super easy to create.  The other dies used are the Garden Flourish, Butterfly Mini, and the "new" Baby Alligator.   To make this just cut two envelopes.  On one turn down the scalloped envelope flap, cut the bottom of each envelope 1/4 " from the scored bottom edge.  Fold the edges of each piece to form the pocket and glue.  Decorate as desired.  Hope you have enjoyed this little gift idea.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!  These are the dies I used:

CottageCutz Wedding Luminary

Hello everyone and Welcome to CottageCutz Blog Hop for June. We will have lots to share with you today using the Beautiful CottageCutz Wedding dies, so be sure to grab your favorite drink ,and enjoy the hop.  You should have arrived her from Olena's blog.  If you get lost along the way be sure to go to the CottageCutz blog for the entire line up.


For my project today I have created a Wedding Luminary/Lantern with the beautiful CottageCutz Wedding dies.  The Tim Holtz Luminary Die was the inspiration for this piece.  Starting at the top the Wedding Day Expressions die is featured.
On the front we have the Wedding Rings, Garden Delight Butterflies, and Swans.  All leaves on this creation were cut with the Bella Leafy Branch.

The Tim Holtz Luminary sits atop a Laughing Cow Cheese box that has been decorated with the Wedding Border Die.  The Tea Time Doily has been used on top of the box.
The Bride & Broom grace the base of the luminary.  The Wedding Border has been used again to coordinate as trim for the perimeter of the wood block.  More butterflies, flowers, and Bella Leafy Branches  accent this creation.
Here are a couple more shots of the bottom decoration and the back of the Luminary.  This would be a beautiful centerpiece for a head table or as a cake topper if the cake is going to be several layers high.

CottageCutz Bridal Shower Paper Fan

 Today I would like to share a project with you using the beautiful Wedding release from CottageCutz dies at The Scrapping Cottage.  Don't you just love all the sweet little "Epression Dies" that JoAnne has created.  They add another dimension to your die crafting needs.
Do you recognize the "Paper Fan".  It is from the dollar bin at Michaels.  There were two to a package.  You could get 2 small, or 2 large paper fans.  They were also available in two sizes in the color pink as well.  I purchased a bunch of them in both colors.  This is the first opportunity that I have had to play with them.  What fun-and talk about fast and quick.  I used the CottageCutz dies  Wedding Cake, Tea Time Doily, Garden Flourish, and the Bridal and Shower Expression dies. 
Thanks for stopping by today to view my creation.  Just a reminder, be sure to join us tomorrow for our CottageCutz Blog Hop.  You won't want to miss what the design team has cooked up for you.  So be sure to stop by tomorrow for all the gorgeous creations.  Until then, Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies used:
