Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Creative Cuts and more blog hop! Aren't these fun?! If you are hopping than you made your way here via Lindsay's blog. Didn't you just love her projects? If you didn't arrive here from the Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop you may want to start there because that is where the directions are posted to win the Fall All Occasions Card Kit.

I want to remind you to check out the store and the Killer Red Tacky Tape. It is the bomb when it comes to putting die-cut boxes together. I don't know about you but I don't have time to sit there and hold it together until it dries. Also, just enter the coupon code octbloghop1509 to receive15% off your order {good for one week}!

Make sure you head over to Chris's blog when you are done here for some more AMAZING inspiration! And if you get lost along the way click here to go to the Diecut Diva blog.

I used the card portfolio for my first project and the football die-cuts. If you have a football player in your family you have to get these!!! They are PERFECT! and you can run them through your Cuttlebug too....I used pop-up dots to accent the one in the middle.

I added some MyStampBOX Just Add Notes stamps on here too for the journal stamp and note stamp inside.


The is portfolio will hold six cards and envelopes but I chose to use it for photos.








For my next project, I used the pumpkin die-cuts for a mask and then accented the one in the middle with some pop-up dots.




And lastly, I used the short kraft puff box for this project...I put some dried marigold seeds inside for a gift for my friend. We love to garden ;) And some more MyStampBOX Funky Flower stamps.







Thanks for stopping by!!!

Ellen, you have such great ideas!
I LOVE the flower seeds in the little cone, I am so going to do that!
I must agree the "Killer Red Tape" rocks! I was at a local store once and they had a GIANT roll of it (It was like 6 inches tall!)
It took all the self control I have not to grab it and RUN!
LOL!
