Die Cuttin' Diva's - Hugs and kisses

Happy Valentine's day!

Welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week it's all about PinkRed, and/or Purple. Come on over and show us your sweet projects and don't forget to include a die cut. Wow, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day, the sun is out and I actually can feel the warm rays. Sorry to everyone enduring the cold, rain and snow :(


I went with pink, pink and more pink :) I used a MCT die and I tried something new to me. I placed the die cuts on the paper and then I ran it through my cuttlebug and it gave the paper an embossed look and feel. It looks really neat because it flattened the die cut and gave the paper a little texture which you can't see in the photo. Also it did spread the glue about which you can see in the picture :( 

I added a bit of pink ink to highlight the inner hearts and them added my sentiment.

Trendy Twine - Love Day

Hi There!

I'm over on the Trendy blog with a Valentine card using some gorgeous Totally Raspberry . I always make a few cards for Valentine's day and usually they are for my boys so I try to not use a ton of pink & red.
Although, I did use a great big pink heart with some Totally Raspberry :) HAHA! 
Oh my gosh, Totally Raspberry is such a pretty pink I just couldn't resist.
I die cut a pink heart and then I die cut a smaller heart in the center and just lined the small heart with twine. 
For the sentiment I used two stamp sets Documenting-the-Everyday-Stamp-Set & Smile-Stamp-Set and simply stamped the sentiment off center.

I hope everyone has a GREAT Valentine's day!

Die Cuttin' Diva's - Sketch challenge

Hello There!

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start. It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week is our monthly sketch. I wanted to make a card with a bunch of items I have had but haven't used yet. I really need to get better at using what I have.


I started with some Gina Marie dies, which are awesome and so reasonably priced!  The squares and the rose are both from Gina Marie. The paper is from we are memory keepers. I flipped the sketch so that I could use my precut cards. Do you precut your card bases? I sat one night and precut over 100 card bases and lots of card mats so I have them on hand for quick use.

Here's the sketch for the week



I added a sentiment from MCT Pretty-Spring-Wreaths-Stamp-Set and I used some distress gold glitter from Ranger.

Die Cuttin' Diva's - Anything Goes

Hello There!

I hope everyone is well, It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week is everyone's favorite - Anything Goes. So come show us what you are working on as long as it includes a die cut.

I have a little lollipop favor to share. These can be used as party favors, or Valentine treats.
Oh my gosh, I picked up this adorable lollipop die from MCT and I just LOVE it.

It is so perfect for the mini lollipops and I just love how it has the holes that are perfect for my Cherry-Cupcake-Trendy-Twine

I added a die cut heart to my favor and then put in my mini lollipop and tied it up with the Trendy Twine. Oh these would be great for Classroom treats!

Trendy Twine - Treats & Sweets

Hi there!

I'm over on the Trendy Blog with a treat pouch for Valentines day using our spotlight twine Totally Red Trendy Twine

Oh I just love anything mini and this little mini pouch/pillow box is so perfect for packing up those mini treats and even more perfect with gorgeous wrapped in Totally Red Trendy Twine.

I used some heavy duty white card stock and die cut the box. I made a belly band with some Valentine theme paper.
I attached a fun tag that I stamped with a sentiment from the This is December 2 using some red ink.

Then I just filled it up with candy!

What a great little classroom Valentine treat too!

It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week we have a very appropriate challenge for many parts of the U.S. Come and show us your Snowflakes or Snowman projects. Now we don't get snow where I live but the temps have dipped into the 30's (well 39) which is SUPER cold for us beach wimps :) and we've had so much rain but we LOVE that it's raining we have been in a severe drought so bring it on!! Okay back to the challenge.... share your Snowflakes or Snowman projects at DCD just be sure to use a die cut.

Here is a tag I made using lots of dies.
I started with a flag banner die for the tag itself and added some stitched square die cuts. I used some fun enamel accents to create snow, and sentiment from APB Let-It-Snow-Stamp-Set

I used the MCT build a snowman set for my cute snowman and added a peachy face. Lastly, I added some pretty aqua sheer ribbon.
