Lots of photos....Grab your coffee!!!

Hello, and Happy Friday!


I have oodles of photos for you today, so I'll keep my words very short! I was invited to serve as a Guest Designer at Creative Cuts and More for September and October! Thanks to Terri and her wonderful DT for thinking of me!


For my first part of this project, I chose to work with the Library Pocket Card #02. I used it as a card front on a standard A2 sized card.



All of the stamps you will see on these items are from Our Daily Bread Designs. All DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Paper Pad, and all coloring is done using my Copics.



This is the Tag #03, Small with Layer from Creative Cuts and More.


My project was designed with DD in mind. She has just begun sewing 'sock critters' in her spare time, and is in need of buttons and other little embellishments. I thought it would be fun to create a funky box for her, so I inverted the Bell Box with Layers from Creative Cuts and More. You can see the box here as it should be!
I hope no one at CCM is offended that I took the liberty to invert this fabulous box!!!


This just shows side view...

And here is a view of the back...look at those ca-ute buttons!


And of course, the top! (which is really the bottom...lol)



Here is the bag of buttons that will go into the box...




And here it is all ready to mail!
Hope DD will like it :)
If you haven't been to Creative Cuts and More, it's well worth the trip! They have literally hundreds of items just waiting for you to create with!!! Cards, tags, boxes, bags, and lots more!



Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Potential is like a hammer...it doesn't build anything until it's put to work.

Cute projects Patti! I love the library pocket...I used to work in libraries before my kids were born so I love seeing stuff like this used on cards. The box is super cute and I'm sure they won't card that you turned it over....shows how versatile it is. I'm sure your DD will love the box and goodies inside. TFS!

Patti, your button box and your cards and tags so sweet!! What a nice way to send along some buttons for your DD. I just let my DIL go though my button boxes to pick out some for some crafts but never thought of a pretty box for her to put them in...we just grabbed a sandwich bag! :D
Thanks for sharing and inspiring! :)
