CottageCutz Build-A-Grapevine Wreath Card

Greetings and welcome to another Fall Harvest Creation.  It's just a few days before Thanksgiving.  Here is a card with the beautiful rich fall colors that are just amazing.  Using the beautiful CottageCutz dies makes it so easy to create a eye catching design.
For this card we have layered spellbinders dies to host the focal point of the Build-A-Grapevine Wreath die.  Just a little bit of text embossing highlights the background.  The Mums were made with a Martha Stewart Punch.  They were created in the same colors used one the leaves.

Pink Hydrangea Card

 Hey everybody.  Here is something a little different from the Halloween, Fall, and Christmas that I have been doing.  This is made with a Joy! Craft die that I purchased at the Creative Keepsake Convention back in September.  I talked Nancy into getting one  It's so pretty.  I love how this came out.  I know when the Holidays are gone, I will be making this again in different colors.
 Not only do I love pink, but the inspiration for this came from some beautiful fall flowers I saw on clearance at Michaels a few weeks ago.  I should have bought them, but dang-I got way to much stuff
Not only did I use that beautiful Joy!craft die, but I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch, deep edge border punch and butterfly punch.  There is also a Cheery Lynn Corner die and a couple of Marianne dies. 
This will probably be the last non-holiday item you see until after Christmas!!!  Thanks so much for dropping by.  I really appreciate it.  Happy Crafting  See you soon!

CottageCutz Harvest Corrugated Boxes

It's Harvest time and my favorite time of the year.  The Cottage Cutz Harvest 2013 collection is just beautiful for creating those fall projects you'll want to share with family and friends.  As promised, I am back with a project that shows you what to do with the corrugated cards.
Aren't these boxes super cute.  They are 3" x 3" and can hold sweet treats or little cards and envelopes.  Whatever you decided, these are sure to please anyone who receives them.  Imagine how pretty this would be on a plate for Thanksgiving dinner. For this gift box I used the Filigree Leaf Pumpkin, Maple Leaf Mini, Oak Leaf Mini, Fall Vine, Sprig Vine Mini, and Leaf Mini. 
This box was created with the beautiful Fall Tree, Fall Vine, and Sprig Vine Mini.  I just love the Sprig Vine Mini.  It reminds me of beautiful ferns.  And, don't get me started on the trees in this collection.  They are amazing.  I cut my tree with brown cardstock and painted the leafs orange and green smooch ink.  It looks amazing IRL.
Here is the inside of the boxes.  You can find the tutorial for making these here.  They are super easy and make up in no time.  So if you want to make them for your Thanksgiving dinner-you still have plenty of time!  Thank you so much for visiting me today.  I really do appreciate it.  My next project for CottageCutz will be another cute item for your Thanksgiving table setting.  Be sure to check back on November 19th for that.  Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

Cottagecutz Fall Goodie Container

Need a fun little gift box/pouch?  Well I have just the little item for you.  And to top it off, these are SUPER EASY to make.  I see you over there saying, yeah she says easy-maybe for  Well let me tell you these are really envelopes.  Yes, that's right envelopes.  The kraft envelopes you find at Michael's with the corrugated cards inside.  So you say great, love these but what am I going to do with all the leftover cards?  Well, I will show you on November 11 what to make with the card.  Hint....Hint....If you love these, you will love what I show you next!!!!!
Let's begin with the Sunflower.  I have a thing for Sunflowers.  This was created with the Cottagecutz Harvest Sunflower, Harvest Vine, and Harvest Fall Corner.  I also used the Harvest Oak Leaf, Elegant Harvest Leaf, and the Harvest Oak Leaf from Cottagecutz.  I created my sunflower with the Sunflower Spellbinders die and mounted the Harvest Sunflower on a Spellbinders Tag.
For this pouch I used the Harvest Vine Border, Harvest Fall Corner, Harvest Apple Tree, and the Harvest Apple Basket.  I used some lace trim from my stash and a fabric flower for decoration.  It even has apple designer paper covering the envelope.

Have you noticed that Owls seem to be all the rage this year.  I have seen some of the cuties Owl Christmas decorations.  So I just had to make an owl pouch.  I used the Fall Owl Border, Harvest Fall Corner, the Harvest Owl and the Sprig Vine Mini.  The flowers are Recollection and I used some bronze glitter on my die cuts for sparkle.
This is what the inside of the pouch looks like.  You can fit a good bunch of stuff in there.  Aren't these really cool.  I have seen quite a few of these on YouTube.  The tutorial for how to create these can be found here.
Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my project.  I sure to appreciate it.  Remember to come back on November 11 and I will show you want to do with the cards.  You'll be creating some cute little projects in no time.  Happy Crafting!!!  These are the dies used:
