Here is a cute gift box made using Gift Box with Divider which was provided by our generous sponsor.  I made the large box for this challenge.


It's so nice that Regina includes a PDF option in her files.  I was having challenges with updates for my Silhouette and ended up just cutting this one out by hand using the PDF files.  It worked great!

We do hope you'll give our challenge a try this week.  To learn more about the challenge including the prize that is up for grabs and to see what my teamies have made, head right on over to the CRAFT Challenge blog!

TCP Tuesday Reminder #362



Half the month of October is behind us, believe it or not.  That means, you still have plenty of time for you to join us in The Cat's Pajamas October challenge.  I have a little inspiration for you today and if you visit the TCP blog, so will the other TCP designers.



For this tiny card, I used Rectangular Stamp Die with a sentiment from Wreath Building Kit.  It was fast and pretty easy to make.


I started by cutting the "stamp" and used washi tape to put the pieces together.  The leaves were cut from yellow and brown scraps and color was added with distress oxide ink.  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap and hand cut into a flag.  Next I cut the card blank which is 3 7/8 x 3 1/8".  The "stamp" was wrapped three times with craft twine and the leaves were threaded on it first and tied in a knot.  The sentiment was tied on with a bow.  I colored several of the clear holeless sequins with a Copic marker to get the Burnt Sienna color and glued them in place.  The 'stamp" was popped up on foam tape and adhered to the card base.  Now it's all ready for sharing Fall goodies with friends or family.

All the details are available on the TCP blog.  Remember you don't have to use TCP products, but if you win the $50 gift voucher will get plenty of goodies for the next challenge!

Aloha,
Brenda

Little Red Wagon #518 - Cut It Out

 It's Wednesday again which means it's time for a new Little Red Wagon challenge.  This week Janice is our hostess and she wants us to "cut it out".  When this is translated, she wants us to either fussy cut or use dies to cut something out for our projects.

Here's what happened for me -




I used a new Altenew stamp set and matching dies to cut the images out.  It doesn't get much simpler than this. 
Why don't you stop by and give our challenge a go this week.  We would love for you to head on over to Little Red Wagon and link up. While you're there, be sure to check out the wonderful projects my Girlfriends have created.

Aloha,
