CottageCutz Ornament Dove Card

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share my card made using the Beautiful CottageCutz Ornament Dove die. I love these Ornament dies, as they are absolutely beautiful and easy to use. for my card today I cut the ornament out with white card stock, and placed it over green striped design paper. Next I used the CottageCutz Red Bird Wreath die CC4x6-104 from an older release. I used the wreath, and then added some small flowers to it.

The design papers I used are from Recollections, and the Ribbon is a chevron red and white from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

"Christmas Past"Mini Album/Video

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas to all! Today I wanted to share another Christmas Album, this one is called "Christmas Past" and was made for my Mom for Christmas.

This is the first page in my mini album. It opens up and closes with a magnet. It has 2 pull outs for writing and photo's. The CottageCutz Dies are from The Scrapping Cottage, and I used them throughout this entire album. 

On this page, there are flaps to hold several photo's and then room for photo's on the tags. I used CottageCutz dies, Really Reasonable Ribbon, some die cut pieces from American Crafts, and wild orchid flowers.

I love this page, as I love Santa and his reindeer. These are CottageCutz dies that are from this years Christmas Release from The Scrapping Cottage. I also used some die cut pieces like Santa's list, and the North Pole. Those I got from American Crafts. I also used the Alphabet Thickers and those too are by American Crafts, and I LOVE using these. There are 2 tags that pull out of the top flap, and inside there are 2 more tags to add photo's to.

Another favorite page of mine, as this one has LOTS of room for tons of photo's. You will have to watch my video to see how many photo's you can fit on this one page. I used CottageCutz Doves on this page, and some of the branches from the CottageCutz Vintage Bells die. I used more of the Thickers, and they are pretty much being used on each page.

Of course this is another favorite page of mine, as I have used this layout in my last Mini Album. Love how it holds about 9-10 photo's and love the snowman, and the Cardinal.

This is my last page of the mini, and LOVE it too!! hehehe. this one opens kinda different, you will have to see in my video. I will be using this layout and interactive page for my Christmas Mini that I will be making next :)

Here is my Video on my Mini

Merry Christmas, and thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
