Critter Mini Album/Video


Hello everyone, today I'm sharing my CottageCutz Critter Mini Album I made using Toilet Paper Rolls. On this mini, I did add a spine and binding, so that it looks like a mini book.

I used the DARLING CottageCutz Critter Release in the mini album, and surprisingly there is plenty of room for photo's. Each page will hold 1, but the tag in each page will hold 2.  On the front cover I used the darling CottageCutz Resting Fawn, and I used the CottageCutz Critterville Little Fawn, CottageCutz Critterville Tree House and the CottageCutz Little Owl. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this release! Its soo sweet!!

On these next 2 pages I used the CottageCutz Little Fox, CottageCutz Resting Fox, and the CottageCutz Critterville Burrow all are colored with copics.

Here on my last 2 pages I used the sweet CottageCutz Bear Cub, CottageCutz Rabbit, and the CottageCutz Critterville Flower Shop. I did add some moss green leaves trim to these 2 pages.

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments! Hugs to all,
Cheryl

Video on how I store my CottageCutz Dies

Hello everyone, and welcome to 
CottageCutz Week of "Storage Idea's" 
for your CottageCutz Dies.

 This next week the CottageCut Design Team Members will be sharing how they store their CottageCutz dies with all of you. Its always nice to get some idea's of storage for our crafting supplies, and we hope that you find some inspiration from our Design Team. They will each be posting on different days this week sharing idea's on how to store CottageCutz Dies!

I like to store my CottageCutz Dies in several different ways. Today I will be sharing 2 out of 4 ways I store them.I like storing them in these Binders for easy finding, as I can flip through the pages. I do store holiday in these file boxes, and when those holidays arrive I just pull the box out and I'm able to go through them very easy. which you will see in my video as well.

In my video below it will show how I store them so you can see! Hope you enjoy my post for today!
Thank you for joining us for another day of  CottageCutz Storage Idea's!

Mr. Snuggles "Make a Wish" card

Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing well, and enjoying the New Year! :)
Today I wanted to share a Birthday Card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the darling CottageCutz dies.

For my CottageCutz Mr. Snuggles, he was cut with white card stock, and then colored with 4 different Copics in E shades. Next I added some blush to his cheeks, and some white gel dots. For his eyes I used Viva Pearl Pen in black. His nose is popped up using a pop dot.

Design Paper- is from American Crafts and is the Pebbles Birthday Wishes paper stack. Love the designs on this dp, perfect for the CottageCutz Birthday Release. CottageCutz Party Hat is cut using the same design paper. I also used another design from this same paper stack for the cake.

Layers- on this card there are 4 layers, that includes the doily on the background layer. I used the CottageCutz Magnolia Doily for the top circle layer. This is for my main images.

Embellishments- I used some brads that I had picked up at the AC warehouse sale last year. I ended up using the Yellow and Blue ones. I also used a Viva Pearl Pen in white to do all the Pearls on the cake and hat. Next I did use glitter glue on the hat as well. Ribbon is extra that I picked up for an awesome deal at the same warehouse sale.

CottageCutz Dies Used: these photo's are all linked to the Scrapping Cottage Store for easy finding.

Telescope "Be Mine Valentine" Card

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share a super fun card I made yesterday. This is a Telescope Fold Card. These are easy and fun to make.

Here is the Card Completely Closed Up!

For the Card- I just picked 3 different base sized circles. Most of them are spellbinders dies, except the top one, it is a CottageCutz "Be Mine" Die, and then I layered a pink spellbinder circle under the red layer on this one. For all the others, I layered each one how I wanted it to look before connecting them all together. The key is to decorate them before connecting them, and to make sure any of your die cut pieces are glued down good, so they don't get in the way when opening this card.

CottageCutz Dies- I just had to pull out these older Valentines CottageCutz dies, as I love making Valentines cards. So for this card I used CottageCutz "Be Mine", "Tweet Love", "Mr. Love Bug", "Sweet Flourish", "Fancy Cattails&Butterflies",Expressions "Valentines Day", all are CottageCutz Dies from The Scrapping Cottage.

Partially Opened card in the photo above

Embellishments- I kept it pretty simple for embellishing this card, as you want to have it close easy with no embellishments in the way. So I only embellished the top layer with some half backed pearls. I was sure to glue them on with glue, so they don't fall off easy. I also added some glitter to the "Mr. Love Bug" Die cut. This gives it a fun look and a little extra Bling for my card.

Supplies Used:
CottageCutz Dies
Spellbinders Dies
Half Backed Pearls
Viva Pearl Pen
American Crafts Card Stock
American Crafts True Love Paper
American Crafts Glitter
Copics for Coloring
Dusting with Distressed Inks
Brads

My card fully Open!
Thank you for looking and I always love hearing from you all! So let me know what you think of my Telescope Card!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

CottageCutz "Snowman Winter Scene"

Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to you all!
Today I'm sharing this Darling CottageCutz Snowman Winter Scene Card. Isn't he just too sweet?! 

For my CottageCutz snowman- I cut him out in white card stock, and then added some viva pearl pen dots, a little glitter glue, and then dusted in a blue ink around the edges. Next I framed him with a border punch, and then added some punched branches in white. Love the look it gives.

 Design paper- I kept it all the same blue with white polka dot design , as it reminds me of winter and snow. Love snow in the winter, however not for several months.....LOL

Layers -There are 3 layers on this card. 1st is the background layer, and then the border layer, and lastly the image layer.I did add sewing with a pattern that looks kinda close to snowflakes, on the background layer and the border layer, cute huh?

Embellish-Lastly I added white half backed pears to each side of my card for some extra embellishing.

 I really enjoyed designing this card. I have added a list of supplies used below.
