Thank you to Creative Cuts & More!

Happy Monday - hopefully your weekend was a nice one.  We just BBQ'd, probably for the last time.  It gets pretty brisk and windy up here on our hillside in the colder months.

I'm not sure where the months of September and October have gone.  It seems like just yesterday, I got my order in from Creative Cuts & More, and my two months as guest DT member began.  I want to say that Terri, and her team at CC&M were wonderful to work with.  Their products are outstanding.  I've not found anything yet that was not easy and amazing to create with.  Thank you, everyone at CC&M for making my time so enjoyable!

I have two projects for you today, using their products.  The first is a color-blocked card.  I chose to use the cream base, with an orange grid.  I had a good time testing many of my forgotten stamps, trying to find the right fit for the openings.

Stamps are Inkadinkado and Hero Arts.  Coloring was done using colored pencils and mineral spirits.  The Designer Paper was from an Autumn Mat Stack by DCWV.


This next project was fun to make.  I started with the Apron Die Cut.  Added some great designer paper from The Paper Studio.  Mmmmm....Pumpkin Pie?  Who can resist that?   Added  a Tag Die Cut, a sentiment from Hero Arts, and a bit of green seam binding ribbon from Stampin' Up.


Next, out came the Copics, and Pie Birgitta from C.C. Designs - how perfect is she with the pie papers???  Too much fun!


OOPS!  Looked at my photo just now, and realized that the ribbon on the tag had fallen down for the photo...lol.  Oh well, you get the idea :)

The finished project.
Once again, thanks to Terri, Dawn, and the crew at Creative Cuts & More.  You are the best!

Have a great week, everyone!  I'll be back tomorrow with a CAS card for Christmas!  If you are looking for something that will lay flat for mailing, and mass produce like one, two, three, be sure and check back!

Then, on November 1st, it's New Release Day for Digi's at the Doodle Pantry!!!  Laurie has some amazing new images for you!  Hope to see you on the 1st!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Food for thought:  You know you're getting older when you are given two choices, and you choose the one that gets you home earlier!  lol.....

Oooh Patti both projects are lovely! I especially like the little gift apron and tag what a wonderful project to have in the stash ready for Christmas. Barbie time in Aus. coming up and we always take along a bottle of wine at least so this would be a great addition! Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow Patti! I love the autumn fall-y look of the first card and the second it so cute! It would be absolutely wonderful for a chef! And I love how you added those dots to the background of the image! It's so perfect!

These are both great Patti, but I simply adore that little apron card! You are so right - that image is just perfect with that paper!

Sue said...

Patti, both cards are wonderful. The grid card is great and love how you can use some stamps that have been neglected on a card like this. Great apron card too, and the image is adorable and so fitting.

Well done, my talented friend. Love these projects - so appropriate for the season and I'm glad you got one more chance to BBQ. It was a splendid weekend to do it!

Thanks for all the well wishes for the Northeast. DD's new inlaws still have not power and the kids got stranded there for a couple days. Schools are closed, traffic lights don't work and all you can do is keep as warm as possible. Thank goodness for fireplaces.

Love your projects PJ! That little sweetie can bake me a pie anytime!
