PPPR design team day

Today is design team day for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I actually have 2 projects to share with you today, both of them using the "Holiday Trees Cutting Files"  My first project is a Christmas card.  The sentiment I used is from Cardz TV stamps' "Home for Christmas" set.   I used PPPR's "Sentiment Spots 1" cutting files for my stamped sentiment.

For my other project, I made some hand sanitizer gift boxes to give to my daughters' teachers for Christmas gifts.  I chose to do a print and cut for my tree since I was making several boxes and at a small size.  Again I used Cardz TV stamps' set "Home for Chirstmas".  The hand sanitizer box is from Scraptastical Kreations.

Don't forget to head over to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog and check out what the rest of the design team made for today!

Cut It Up challenge #8: White Elegance

Welcome back to another Cut It Up challenge!!  This time the challenge is to create an all white card with only touches of another color - and include a die cut!  I decided to go with a winter/Christmas theme for my card.  I pulled out my Cricut and used this snowflake from the Christmas Noel cartridge.  I used my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and chose silver as my accent color for my card.  I also used my scor pal to create a couple of horizontal lines to separate my sentiment from the embossed section.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps' set, "Christmas Joy".

Now it is your turn - link your card/project up at the Cut It Up Challenge BLOG and while you are there make sure to check out the rest of the design team's projects.

Cupcake Birthday Cards

Happy Monday my fellow bloggers!!  I wanted to share with you a couple of birthday cards I made for 2 of my youngest daughter's friends.  There were two birthday parties back to back so I decided to use the same card and just varied the colors a bit.  I love this cupcake file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Panda Cutting files.  

I cut my border strip using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Borders 2 Cutting files.  I used some silver Liquid Pearls to add accents to my cupcake swirls.  My sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps' "Christmas Joy" set.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  I want to let you know that we will be having a Winter Blog Hop for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on December 15th!   Hope you come back to visit then!!

PPPR Design Team Day

Happy Wednesday and welcome back to another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team day.  Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made using Santa's Helpers Cutting Files.    I decided to do a print and cut for Mrs. Santa because I wanted to try to make a card that had fewer layers so that it was cheaper and easier to mail.  I did pop up my frame shape but that is the only dimension to the card.  My background paper is from a Recollections Christmas pack from last year.  Both of my sentiments (inside and outside of card) are from Cardz TV stamps' "Christmas Joy" set.
