Creative Cuts & More - Blog Hop Time!

Welcome to my spot on the Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop!

If you haven't been following the blog hop, please be sure to head on over to the Creative Cuts & More blog in order to find out how you can win a FALL ALL OCCASIONS CARD KIT and get a coupon code for 15% off of your order. {Oh, okay...I'll spill it here. The coupon code is Octbloghop1509.} 15% off the already great prices on the die cuts, papers, Killer Red Tacky Tape, and more is a fabulous treat...not to mention all of the great eye candy along the blog hop! {The next stop is at Steph Zerbe's blog.}

Thanksgiving & Christmas are sneaking up on us, and I'd like to share some holiday projects that are quick and easy {thanks to the die cuts from Creative Cuts & More}, and also very cute {if I do say so myself!}.

First off, I made this frame set with a fall/Thanksgiving theme, but you could use different papers and embellishments to easily suit any occasion.
{You can click on any picture for a larger view.}


I started with the rectangle frames in a heavy chipboard and covered them with some great fall colored papers from Bo Bunny. I then used my Crop-A-Dile and some twine to attach the frames.


I love these pumpkin cuts! I used some of the awesome velvet paper from Creative Cuts & More and hand cut the accents for the pumpkins. I just topped them off with a little bit of detail using a white Inkssentials pen.

And here's a little helper for "Santa":


This little book is small enough to fit in your purse, but can easily hold all the lists to help you manage your gift shopping. And after you are done shopping, you can add a few album pages and turn it into a great holiday mini-album!

The velvet paper from Creative Cuts & More is a must for any of your Christmas projects...it is so soft and beautiful. It is also super easy to cut! The back of the paper has a surface that is very easy to trace onto to make your cutting easy!


I love all the options for each of the great die cuts...you can get them in foam, acetate, many different papers and cardstocks, felt, polyshrink, different weights of chipboard, velvet, vellum...and even Tacky Tape! For the buckle I used a light weight chipboard cut and topped it with a metallic cardstock cut. The chipboard adds a nice depth to the buckle and the metallic cardstock was so easy to cover the chipboard with since it was already cut to the same shape.
