Cottage Cutz Spring Album Page 3 & $

 Greetings CottageCutz Lover and Friends.  Today is my project share of Page 3 and 4 of my Cottage Cutz Spring Mini Album.  The tutorial for this mini can be found here.   It was a lot of fun to create this.  It has lots of room for pictures and journaling.
 For the third page in the series I used the Springtime Bunny, Bella Flora Frame, andd the Fancy Floral Scroll.  The frame has a Martha Stewart Punch around the Page design and the flowers are Prima.
 For page four again we have the Fancy Floral Scroll, Fancy Daisy Vine, and the Bumble Bee Mini.  The tag in the pocket uses the same Martha Stewart Punch around the page, another Prima flower, a acrylic butterfly and a Some Bunny Loves You stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's.
The pocket insert used the bird from the Spring Tweetie die and the Spring Birdhouse Branch.  It looks like spring has sprung on these pages doesn't it?   Thank you so much for stopping by today to view another edition to this CottageCutz Spring Mini Album.  Happy Crafting and have a wonderful day!  Here are the dies used:

Cottage Cutz Page 1 & 2 Spring Mini

Greetings friends and papercrafters.  Today is another post featuring the CottageCutz Spring Mini Album with the beautiful Cottage Cutz dies.  It's an envelope mini made with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.  You can find the tutorial here that I used to create this sweet little mini album
 For the first page I used the Garden Birdhouse Tree on the tag.  The Spring Hedgehogs are playing by the Garden Butterfly Tree..  The little Confectionery Bags, Small hold the sweetest little tags made with the Spring Daisy Egg.  Such a cute and fun page.
 The tree has been embellished with pearls that were colored with copic markers.  Martha Stewart Punch around the page was used on the tag and the matt for this page.
 For the second page a pocket was created to hold two folders.  The pocket has been decorated with Springtime Friends.  Isn't this a precious die.  I love the chicks-they crack me up....get it....crack me  On the folders we have one with the Garden Delight Bird and the other with the Fancy Daisy Vine.
 When you open these two folders, each one houses a pocket for egg tags that were made with the Garden Butterfly Egg and the Spring Sunrise Egg dies from CottageCutz.  Lots of detail for this Spring mini Album.
Thanks for stopping by today to view my album.  Here is the front cover from the last time I posted my Design team project.  I will be back soon with more pages to show you.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Until next time, Happy Crafting, see you soon!  Here are the dies I used:

Happy St. Patrick's Day

 Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Here in Georgia we had no power this morning.  Woke up to flickering candle light as my husband lit candles all over the house before he left.  The power was out for at least a couple hours.  It just came on so I thought I would share this picture of my St. Patrick's Day tree before I get ready for work while I am waiting for the coffee to finish brewing!
Don't think I could get any more green on this tree if I   There are some gold coins, but pretty much everything else is green.  This year I added some green ornaments that I got on clearance at Walmart at the Christmas Closeout.  They were 25 cents each so I couldn't pass them up.  Going through Christmas clearance is one of my favorite things to do.  I will get ornaments I can use throughout the year for my different holiday themed trees.  Looks like I need to make my Shamrock Quilts.  It would look so much better than my spring tulips.  Enjoy your day-see you soon!

CottageCutz Spring Mini Album

So how many of you have the WeR Memory Keepers Envelop Punch Board???  I got mine at Michael's with a 40% off coupon.  It was a great purchase-there is so much you can create with that--have you notice!!!  For instance, I made this mini album with the Envelope punch board.  Thanks to the wonderful crafter who created this tutorial it was a breeze.
 Today I am going to show you my cover.  This is my Design Team project for CottageCutz using the cute dies from the Garden Delight release.  Of course, I used a few other ones in my Cottage Cutz collection that coordinate perfectly with this release.    The cover uses Springtime Bunny, Garden Delight Butterflies, Lace Flower Doily, Bella Leafy Branch, and Fancy Floral Background.
Blossoms and Butterflies from DCWV is the paper collection used in this project.  I think I have hoarded that one for long enough don't  It was perfect for the bright cheerful spring look I was going for.  The edges of the paper have been distressed and inked with tea dye distress ink.  There isn't a speck of glitter on this project either...WOW-huh!!!  There is silver foil in the paper and that is what you see glistening...but yeah, no glitter.  The flowers were created with a large and medium five petal Marvey punch.  The stamp is from Michael's $1 bin from a few years ago.
Please stayed tune to more reveal of my project this month.  My mini album was made with 4 envelopes created on the Envelope Punch Board.  It was so fun to make and holds lots of pockets and pictures.  I can't wait to show you the rest of the 22 Cottage Cutz dies I used to create this.  That's right---I used a total of 27 Cottage Cutz dies for this album.  I think that is a record for  Thanks for stopping by today to view my project.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies I used:
