CottageCutz Haunted Mill

 Welcome friends and crafters to a CottageCutz Halloween creation.  Here is another Spooktacular die.  This one is called CottageCutz Haunted Mill.  Doesn't it look fabulous on this background.  It almost appears to be lit up!  To create the background cut a circle for your mask to create the moon.  Tape it with removable tape and use your distress inks to color the background.  Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and Black Soot was used here.  The frames were cut on the Cricut from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge.  The bottom frame was distressed with Peeled Paint and stickles were applied for the glittery effect.  The CottageCutz Halloween Tag Topper was cut on black cardstock and mounted on green designer paper.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this project.  It sure is appreciated.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies used:

CottageCutz Ghost House Halloween Card

Greetings everyone.  Today's creation features beautiful Halloween CottageCutz dies in an exciting array of shapes.  The main focal point of the card is CottageCutz Spooky Ghost House.  Isn't this fabulous.  Just cut out your die on black card stock and mount it on a piece of orange cardstock that is 1/4" larger than the die to make it pop!
For the CottageCuz Halloween Tag the die was cut on orange glitter paper.  After die cutting, just take the die and trace around the outside on black paper and cut with scissors.  Mount the orange glitter die cut on top and you have this awesome contrast.
The green scarecrow is the CottageCutz Harvest Scarecrow.  The Gold with Brush Corduroy distress inked scarecrow is CottageCutz Garden Scarecrow.   The top border is CottageCutz Graveyard Border.

Butterfly Altered Glassine Bay

 Greetings Papercrafters.  Today is a share of another project done for the Butterfly Pocket Letter swap I did.  This is an altered Glassine bag.  I just love altering these.  They are fun to do. 
Look at how beautiful this flower turned out!  It was made with the CottageCutz die called Flower Cluster but taken to a 3D level by using a five petal punch.  Studio G purple and blue inks were used to shade the flowers and there are pearl centers.  Peeled Paint distress ink shades the stem and leaves.
The beautiful Spellbinders oval die host the framing of this gorgeous flower.  The butterflies are K&Company.  A Martha Stewart deep border punch trims the background.  The topper is a Marianne Die and the "Createis Hedi Swapp.  The reason I used that word is because I filled this back with goodies to "Create".  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visit.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon.

Altered Butterfly Photo Holder

 Hello Crafters.  Did anyone get these Burlap Photo Holders from Michael's this spring.  They had the butterflies and birds and I don't remember what else.  I have been scoping out Pinterest looking for anyone that has altered these and haven't been successful.  This one was altered for a swap I was in that had a Butterfly Theme.  It was perfect to fit the theme.
The wings on the butterfly are trimmed with small doilies that I crocheted.  The little butterflies are Marthat Stewart.  The big butterfly is a CottageCutz die as well as the little blue flower.  The yellow flower is Sizzix and the Carmelia is a Spellbinders die.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!

Butterfly Themed Pocket Letter

Today's project features a Butterfly Themed Pocket Letter that I created for a swap with Deb over at Garage Sale Gal.  This was a fun theme and I did several projects that I will share over the next few days before I do back to Halloween and Fall projects.
Starting with the top three pockets, pocket #1 is a Cheery Lynn Hydrange die.  The middle pocket uses CottageCutz Ornate Fence.  Pocket #3 is CottageCutz Flowerpot Mini, and Flower Mini.  The Butterfly Embellishments from K&Company.
For the center of the pocket letter, Pocket #4 has CottageCutz Daisy Showers.  The Center Pocket is a shaker and it features the CottageCutz Springtime Window.    Pocket #6 features CottageCutz Flower Bouquet Jar.
For Pocket #7 the Brown Eyes Susan fl0wers were created with a Sizzix die.  Pocket #8 is the CottageCutz Flower Cluster die.  Pocket #9 is CottageCutz Watering Can with Tulips die.
  This is a tag created to dangle on the Pocket Letter.  It's a blackboard tag that comes from Michael's.  I used a Cricut Alphabet Cartridge to create the name.  The CottageCutz Victorian Frames was used to decorate the tag.  The butterfly is CottageCutz Garden Delight.  As you can see, CottageCutz dies are absolutely perfect for creating Pocket Letters.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this Pocket Letter.  Be sure to check back for more items that were created for the swap that I will be posting the next few days  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you soon!
