Christmas Memories Album/Video


Hello everyone, today I'm sharing my entire "Our Family Christmas Memories" Mini Album, using LOTS of CottageCutz Christmas Dies. I also used tons of Really Reasonable Ribbon throughout my mini.

CottageCutz Black Friday Preview/Puppy In Bag

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
Today is day 4 of the CottageCutz Black Friday Previews for the CottageCutz "In The Woods" Release. 
Today I'm showcasing the Sweet CottageCutz Puppy in Bag Die. He is another super cute die in this darling collection. He is cut out in white card stock, and then colored using the dusting technique. I did dust him using Tim Holtz distressed inks. Next I colored his eyes, nose, and mouth using copics.
 card measures 3 1/2"x 3 1/2"
This card was super simple to make, as I cute a 3 1/2" x 7" piece of card stock for the card base, then layered my frame with Pink Paislee design paper Winter Wonderland. I added some Really Reasonable Ribbon in a brown Gingham Print, and a big bow/ with a button. Lastly I added some white dots to the corners, and stamped a StampinUp! sentiment on the bottom.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!!!

Santa's "Naughty or Nice" Page/ FamilyChristmas Memories Album

Hello Friends! Happy Thursday to all!
Today I'm sharing another page from the "Family Christmas Memories Album" Iv'e been working on this last week.

For this page, I have used a 6" x 6" chipboard piece, and covered it with American Crafts Design Papers. Next The frame I created was designed using Spellbinders Die, and the sentiment tag was done using SU! punches. For the SU! tag, I used the CottageCutz stamp that was released last year in the Christmas gift set. I also used the Naughty and Nice from the same giftset.

I absolutely LOVE Santa, he is so Jolly and Sweet! Matter of fact, we still hang stockings for the kids and us, because Santa still stops by for a visit every year at the Walkers :) 
This CottageCutz Santa & Friends is absolutely one of my Favorites,and worked perfect for this page.Santa and his friends are all colored using Copic markers. I also used white glitter for Santa's fur on his coat,pants, and hat. For behind Santa, I used pieces of the CottageCutz Holiday Floral Spray, and just left them white.

On the Right side of the page, I used the CottageCutz Bare Tree w/ Accessories , and just colored it green. Lastly I finished off my page with some Red Sheer Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Supplies Used:
CottageCutz Dies/Stamps
Spellbinders Dies
StampinUp! dies
American Crafts Design Paper
Really Reasonable Ribbon
Copic Markers to color
Scor-tape
Helmar Glue


I hope you enjoyed today's post, and thank you for stopping by!
