Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!


I am so grateful for my family, friends and you!!!  I hope you have a wonderful time enjoying the delicious smells, tastes and fun this awesome holiday has to offer.  May you give thanks for all you have and God Bless!

For this card I used a wheat DP for the background.  A cream colored card stock cut with the Pierced Rectangle and run through an embossing folder.  Next I cut the Give Thanks using copper metalic paper.  And finally I cut out the pumpkin and leaves in white and colored them with my Copic Markers.

Have a restful and joyous time with loved ones!!

Christmas Wishes!

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends

I can't believe Christmas is only a month and a few days away!  I am enjoying making my cards this year because of the adorable dies in the new Christmas releases Part 1 and 2.  There is everything you could want in these 2 releases.

Design Steps:

 1.  Use the Holiday Gnomes w/Fox die and cut all the pieces out in white card stock
 2.  Color and shade the piece with you favorite markers.  After they are colored assemble the pieces
 3.  Cut a piece of purple card stock 4 x 5 1/4 and run it through an embossing folder.  Cut a piece of snowy designer paper 3 x 4.  And cut a circle 3 1/4 inch circle using the Stitched Circle die.  Also cut the snowbanks using the Polar Bear.  Glue all pieces to the purple card stock
4.  Glue the purple panel to a white A2 card base.  Use dimension tape and pop up the gnome and fox.  Cut out the sentiment and scalloped circle using the Christmas Tag Topper set.  The snowflake is cut with the Santa Over Christmas Town

Reindeer Baking

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I am so glad I have gotten a head start on my Christmas cards.  So that I can make each one of them special for the family member or friend.  The one I am making today is going to a friend that loves to bake.  I personally would rather bake then cook!  These little baking reindeer are just adorable!

Design Steps:

 1.  Using the Let's Bake Cookies die cut all of the pieces out in white card stock
 2.  Color and shade the pieces using your favorite markers
3.  Assemble the 3 reindeer and place dimension tape on the back of each of the reindeer
 4.  Use a white A2 card base cut a piece of red polka dot DP  4 x 5 1/4.  And then using the Double Stitched Rectangle die cut second from the largest cut out a piece of DP.
5.  Glue down the DP stitched rectangle then wrap white Ric Rack to the red DP on the top and bottom.  Then glue to the card base
6.  Arrange your little reindeer on the front of the card and add your sentiment

Winter Village

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

The Design Team is continuing to show samples from the Part 2 Christmas release.  Today I selected the Winter Village die to create with.  This die is just loaded with trees and little buildings super fun to work with.
Design steps

 1.  Using the Winter Village die cut out all of the pieces in white card stock
 2.  Using the second to the largest Circle die and a piece of blue card stock cut to 5 1/4 x 4 1/8. Cut out the center of the card stock. Next cut out a slightly smaller piece of purple DP and use the largest circle die to cut out the center of the DP.  Glue the two pieces together
3.  On the circle that was cut out from the DP arrange the snow banks then glue to the back of the opening
4.  Start to arrange the village scene by tucking in the pieces behind the snow banks.  I lined the backs of the houses and church with light yellow card stock to give them a warm glow
5.  After your have finished arrange your pieces glue them down to the card.  Then glue the whole panel to a A2 white card base and your card is complete
