Creative Cuts and More BLOG HOP!

Hello Blog Hoppers!
This is my FIRST blog Hop with Creative Cuts and More! I am so excited to have been asked to join their Design Team!
If you didn't arrive here from the Die Cut Diva website, you don't want to miss what our whole DT has in store for you! The CC&M Blog Hop starts at http://diecutdiva.com/

Creative Cuts and More is offering blog candy at the main Die Cut Diva blog and also on one other link in the chain, so you will want to keep hopping through the blogs Two of the brand new card kits will be given away!!! How fabulous is that!?

Now for your "Eye Candy here" ;) Here are pictures of the TWO KITS available at Creative Cuts and More... You can find the kits HERE. Both of these DELIGHTFULLY FUN kits were designed by Pam Smerker. This GIRL card kit was the one I used for all of my cards. I have to say, this was SOOO much fun! I do not think I have had this much fun playing with cardstock in the past few months! It was just SHEER JOY to create these cards with this kit! The kit had everything I needed, but I couldn't resist adding a few things. Those things will be listed per card for you, so you know what won't be included in the kit when you purchase or win it!
Watch for many more new and exciting kits and products from CC&M.

This card kit is jammed packed with supplies. This kit contains 12 die cut cards and envelopes. Many of the cards included in the kit are exclusive to CC&M. The kit is worth over $30 but we are offering it for $26.99.You will have everything you need to make 12 great cards. The only thing you will need to add is adhesive.

There is a great birthday stamp set from Doodlebug that is an add-on to the kit. View our gallery to see all of the great examples that can be made with this kit.
$26.99 for this complete kit.


Do you notice in the kit ALL of your 12 cards are cut? I was thrilled when I saw that! I was able to create some cute cards quickly and in all different shapes and styles!

For this cute Purse card in addition to the kit supplies I used scissors

and the Scallop edged punch. Everything including the Gift Card holder insert which is exclusively designed by Creative Cuts and More is included!


This is a Side Opening Tag Card. I used a Pink Marker to frame the heart, this was not included in your kit!For this Side Opening Tag Card (included in the kit) the only addition that I used was the Copic Spica Purple Pens, SU Tempting Turqouise cardstock and a 1 1/2 inch circle punch.For this Flip Flop card (included in the kit) I used a Bone Folder for the extra scoring on the white layer, Glue Dot to attach the flower. I cut the designer paper strips in 1/2 inch strips and 1/8 inch strips. I loved this because the flip flop card is precut and scored for me, so all I had to do is decorate these cards!

This Flip Flop card was so fun to create. I used the 1/8" hole punch and a half inch circle punch on the hat Die Cut, glue dot to attach the flower on the top of the hat, SU Tempting Turquoise CS, SU Green Gable CS, and Pink Passion Marker to draw the faux stitching.This fabulous Window card comes with this exclusive scallop circle fit to your card precut in your kit! Things I used not included in the kit are the Bazzill Swimming Pool Criss Cross cardstock, Circle cutter, Very Vanilla 5/8" grosgrain, Bazzill Buttercream Criss Cross Cardstock for the layer, K&C adhesive gemstones.The extras on this card was the SU Gable Green and Tempting Turquoise cardstock, scissors to layer, Rose grosgrain, the SU round oval punch

For this Gatefold card I added a sentiment on the inside along with the stickers. The sentiment is from a stamp set available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Birthday greetings.


Now with this card...I have to say I think I got a little carried away. LOL It was fun to create, but I made it a little too busy for my taste. Additions are SU Tempting Turquoise cardstockand the Rounded Tab Punch.


Out of all of the cards, this one was the most fun to create! This is an Acetate Gatefold card. I was so excited about it, that as I was showing my husband it and passing it to him to look at, I dropped it in the dogs water dish, so I had to use my heat tool to dry it, pull it apart to see what I can salvage. There is a tiny bit of warping on the inside cardstock. I couldn't get that off without destroying the acetate visual on the back of the card - so I left it in there... so bare with me as it is a tiny bit warped!


The top portion that says "Party Girl, You take the cake - slides off. Additions not included in the kit is the layers - SU Gable Green and Pink Passion Cardstock. I also Paper pierced the top postion of the outside layer.Out of this kit, this was the quickest card I created. Once I was on a roll there was no stopping me! Additions were Su Pink Passion, Green Galore Cardstock and the Celery RibbonOut of all of the cards...this one is my favorite! Do you know what makes it my favorite? The Black Cardstock. I used it for the layers -and a 1 1/2" circle punch for a layer behind the heart, Stardust Stickles was used on the HAPPY.
