Tuesday DT Project

This week's Design Team project features this lovely Bunny Card. This card pattern file will be available soon at CK2.

This card is a tri-fold card. The file includes an envelope as well.

I used patterned paper by K&Company "Kelly Panaci's Valentine". Bunny parts are cut using random scraps of  card stock. All pieces as well as the card are inked with "Worn Lipstick" distress ink. The sentiment "some bunny loves you" was made using my Dymo label maker. I used a white gel to highlight his eyes. On the inside of the card a placed a small mat for an extra sentiment or personal greeting!

Please visit CK2 for your project file! Remember to check back often for new files!

Build -A-Project

Hi guys! Today I want to share with you this week's Build-a-Project (BAP). Every Monday morning a new BAP is posted on Creative Kuts Facebook fan page. You request the file if you want to participate by emailing the person listed for that project. Each  BAP is due by Sunday 5pm PST in order to participate in the next week's BAP.

This week's BAP is a "Happy Birthday" card. Then I used a file I purchased  from "Creative Kuts" to embellish my card! The file name of this cute bear in a boot is called "More Shoes Than.." and can be found here. The patterned paper I used is "Lemon Flower" by DCWV.

I also want to share with you last week's BAP since I forgot to post it. We were given a pattern file and had to make a birthday  layout with it. I used "Nana's Nursery Baby Boy" by DCWV for my patterned paper and some assorted card stock. I used a Martha Stewart loops punch on the top of the page. The balloons are popped up with foam tape and so are the presents and cake.

Hope you come over and join us over at Creative Kuts Fan page and play along!!

Squirrel Gift Bag DT Project

Today I want to share with you my first official Design Team project. This pattern file can be purchased here.

For this cute bag I used patterned paper from Martha Stewart "Enchanted Woodland" designer paper pad.  I chose this paper because it has cute little critters on the paper to match my little squirrel guy!

The squirrel and acorn were cut using random card stock from my scraps. The acorn was inked with Vintage photo distress ink and on the squirrel I used Worn Lipstick on the edges. For the top of the acorn I ran it thru my Sidekick using a Fiskars texture plate "squares".  The squirrel's eyes are highlighted with a white "Gelly Roll" pen. The sentiment "Nuts over you" I printed the words out with my printer and changed the font color to match the colors in my project.( Note: the banner piece for the sentiment is included in the pattern file.)

Hope you enjoyed this project! I had a lot of fun putting this one together! Be sure to stop by CK2  to purchase your file for Valentine's Day!

I am a new DT member for CK2!

Today I want to share with you this beautiful cookie box using the "XOXO" cookie box pattern found here.

I used DCWV's patterned paper "Be Mine" stack. The cream and gold card stock are from a Martha Stewart paper pad. After all pieces were cut using my MTC software I inked all around the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. To finish it off I added some bling to the XO on the box as well as the tag.

Altered Composition notebook

My daughter asked if I could make something for a friend of hers that loves Hello Kitty. So I decided to alter a composition notebook for her. The patterned paper I used is "Sweet Life" by K&Company. Hello Kitty of course is from the Hello Kitty cricut cartridge. The little flowers are from an ek success punch and the letters are thickers. I thought it turned out cute.
