Jolly Cardinal Christmas Card

I’m hopping on today with a quick Christmas card share using the Cottage Cutz Jolly Cardinal die set. I LOVE this cute little bird sitting on his snowy branch!

I chose to cut him out in blue for this card, but you could also cut him out in red to be a Christmas cardinal, white or pink for wedding or Valentine’s day, yellow for springtime, or even black for Halloween!

See you again soon!

I love the images of Santa in this collection! Look how cute this die cut is … he is definitely keeping an eye out to see who is being naughty or nice!

I also really love the greenery images from this collection … especially the holly and berries. I made sure each embellishment cluster on this page had holly, tying them all together and adding a cohesive look to the design.

Carta Bella Paper: Beautiful, Beautiful Fall!

Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog sharing a new layout created with the gorgeous Carta Bella Paper Fall Break collection.

I love when a fall collection includes the color blue (although, my pictures here make it look a little more mint green?). So many of our Fall photos include the warm colors of gold, orange, and red. Using blue can offset all the warmth and really help your photos pop and look their best!

I included two 4″x3″ photos on this page in a grid pattern of six blocks. In between the photos in the left column I added this adorable map die cut (Ephemera) of the fall colors in the United States. A trio of blue enamel dots gives the die cut a bit of dimension.

The remaining blocks in the right column were all cut from papers of the 6×6 paper pad. I added my journaling to the top block, and then used the center block for my title. The bottom block is a more colorful pattern, so I left it plain, without any embellishing, to let the viewer take in all of the cute fall images.
I used die cuts from the Ephemera pack (the “Beautiful” word piece and the “F-A-L-L” banner pieces) together to create the title. Next, I accented the title block with the blue and white pumpkin images from this collection. I love these non-traditional pumpkin colors! They are so on trend and have a serene feeling about them … just like a beautiful, crisp fall day!

Underneath the right edge of the grid block I added several die cut leaves using Natural White Felt Designer Cardstock and the Harvest Branches Die Set. If I had die cut them from colored cardstock, they would have competed with the patterns I had going on in the rest of the design. The tone-on-tone texture of the die cuts is a fun way to add more interest (and more fall flair) to the overall layout.

Echo Park Paper: “You Are PAW-some” Dog House Treat Box

Hello, friends! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a fun dog house-shaped treat box for the dog lover in your life. I used the adorable new A Dog’s Tail collection for this project. Check it out below!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine to cut out the dog house using a house cut file from the Gingerbread Chalet Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. The base of the box is cut from the Puppy Play Paper. The roof was cut from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then covered with Furry Friends paper shingles (green polka dots). I created the shingles by cutting out small rectangles using my Silhouette Cameo and then adhering them one-by-one to the roof.

Next, I added a piece of acetate over the dog house door and added some grass border die cuts (using a metal die from my stash) along the bottom of each of the four walls. I then decorated the front of the house with several stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet and a dog that I fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I die cut the heart above the door using the Postage Stamp Die Set (an older metal die set by Echo Park Paper).

I placed a treat inside of a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow, and then placed it inside of the gift box. I then tied everything closed with a cheery, red, plaid ribbon.

Every gift needs a cute tag, don’t you think?! The tags in the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack make it easy! I attached one to the bow at the top of the box using a bit of white twine, and then decorated the tag with a few small die cut hearts (Flower Set #5 Die Set).

Now this fun little treat is ready to give to your PAW-some friend! They will be delighted to open such a fun gift!
