Cottage Cutz Blog Hop Tea party

Hello everyone and welcome to The Scrapping Cottage Blog Hop for June.  We have lots to share with you today featuring the darling Cottage Cutz die cuts.  So grab your favorite drink, relax, and enjoy visiting the design team to view their awesome creations.  You should have arrived here from Janice.  If not, be sure to start at The Scrapping Cottage so you do not get lost along the way.
 Let me invite you to my blog hop tea party.  Here is your place setting.  Won't you please sit down while I pour you a nice cup of hot peach tea.  It is my pleasure to serve you while we share a blissful moment of great conversation and a few tasty treats.
Here is a red velvet cream cheese frosted cupcake I made just for you.  Notice the cute cupcake topper  made with the cottage cut Tea Cake Mini.  Don't you just love it!  It was made with a Martha Stewart Punch, Spellbinders scalloped circle, a little bow, prima flower,  diamond stickles, and a tooth pick.  Delicious!
Now it's time to select a tea bag from this pretty Tea Pagoda that was created especially for this party..  It has the Cottage Cutz Small Teapot on the front and the Small Teacup on the side.
As you can see on this side the matching Cream and Sugar Set was used to decorate the Pagoda.  If you would like to create one of these yourself, please stop by my friends Cibele Glazer's blog here for the tutorial.
This is  your napkin with a napkin ring created with the Small Tea Cup.  As a thank you for joining me today, this round box has been created with the sweet Tea Cakes die and the lovely Tea Time Doily.  If you look inside you will see it contains bon bons.  This was made from a recycled "Laughing Cow" cheese box!
Here is a place card at your setting for you to write in your name.  This was created with the Napkin and Decorative Teaspoon Die and the sweet little Tea Pot mini.  This would be really cute if you used the  Sugar and Cream Alphabet to place your guest's name on this!
Here is another little gift I made for you to take home.  It's a teabag holder!  When you use it think of me and the tea that we shared today.  This was made with the Cottage Cutz Tea Cup With Saucer and Tea Bag Die.
Thank you for coming to my Tea Party.  The pleasure of you company was thoroughly enjoyed!  We thank you for joining The Scrapping Cottage Blog Hop.  Your next stop is the talented Kelly.  Be sure to check out her fabulous creation.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the Design Team member blogs and at The Scrapping Cottage Blog to have your name entered to win one of three fabulous prizes.  Have a great weekend!!!
