The pennants are cut at 3.5 wide and I used different Halloween paper I had on hand. I used some purple n green twine from Doodle Bug Design to hold them together. I used Scotch quick-Dry adhesive to put the pumpkins together, 3-d pop up dots for in between the last pumpkin shape to face and pumpkin and pennant. Please visit cutters creek store to find all your paper and adhesive needs and much more. Also, we have clubs you can join for 6 months on different items, just ask Kim and she will give you all the information. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Halloween.

My card is a white card stock base cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. I added a blue mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My patterned paper is from my stash. The floral paper was cut at 3 1/2" X 3 3/4". The striped piece was cut at 1 1/2" X 3 3/4". I took a strip of the blue paper and used a scallop punch to create a little border between the two different papers. I also added a strip of blue to the upper half of my card. I then attached my flower embellishment using a craft glue dot. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of white card stock using some Memento Danube Blue ink. I used the ink pad to ink around the edges of the white card stock.
On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the floral paper and stamped the rest of my sentiment using the Danube Blue ink.

Today I am here with my DT post for Cutters Creek. This month is Breast cancer month and so just a reminder that if you are over 40 you need to get your mammogram and not to forget to do your monthly exams. I always forget to check monthly so I am most definitely going to do a better job on that. I turned 40 this year and so my Dr. has scheduled me for my first mammogram. Not too excited about it but it's just one of those things that we have to get done! My card today uses a lot of pink! Be sure to watch the video to get the recipe and see how it all gets put together.

My card is a center panel step card, and is cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I used a white card stock base and some pink Core' dinations card stock. I embossed the small side pieces with the Juliet Damask Anna Griffin Embossing border folders and the center decorative piece with the main embossing folder. Kim, can order this folder for you.
I cut the ribbon symbol with my Silhouette and using some Glue and Seal added some Spun Sugar Distress glitter. (Yes, this is a special order item, but please just ask)! I attached this to the card with some foam squares.
My sentiments were stamped from the Jillian Vance Design stamps with some Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I used two sentiments from the set.
I just want to encourage all of you women out there to be sure you get your annual screenings. Thanks so much for visiting us here at the Cutters Creek Design Team Blog.

The Cutters Creek Design Team is dedicated to raise awareness through our projects and for today I made a tag. Tags are one of my favorite things to create. In my stash I have some tags made of metal foil. After doing some research I found how cool the metal foil tags look embossed.
I embossed my tag with a Sizzix embossing folder called Flowers. It’s the A2 size which was perfect for the size of my tag (approx. 2-1/2” x 4-3/4”).
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the tag. I don’t know if you are like me but some of my craft supplies have dust on them from not using them much. But I finally dusted off two of my Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Wild Plum and Red Pepper. I don’t have many colors but I was hoping that these two colors would give me a nice pink color. It turns out that I got a very deep pink which I loved a lot. I took an applicator felt and applied it to the applicator tool. A few drops of each color goes a long way. Plus I added some Adirondack Blending Solution to help lighten the color. Then I spread the color on my embossed tag (both sides). Once the ink dried I sanded the embossed tag to take some of the color off to expose the silver metal foil. I love how it turned out. And I would love to know what you think.
I added the word HOPE (used clear glitter using a Wink of Stella glitter brush). And added some pretty ribbon and braided pink trim.
I used a Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent Dispenser on the ribbon to hold in place. I glued the word Hope using Inkssentials Glossy Accents since I was gluing to metal foil. And some hot glue to the braided ribbon to keep it in place.
Side Bar: If you are interested in using metal foil to cover tags and more you can purchase it at the Cutters Creek Online Store. Its called Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape Sheets. Cutters Creek carries a lot of the Ranger Products and if you don’t see what you are looking for you can contact Kim and she may be able to special order it for you. She loves keeping her customers happy.

When breast cancer is detected early, in the localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is 98%**From the National Cancer Institute
That's why it's so important to get your yearly mammogram. Remember: breast cancer doesn't discriminate!
I have had my own scare with breast cancer and was thankful that it only turned out be cysts but I know of many other women who got the sad news that their lumps were breast cancer. The good news is, because their cancer was detected early, these women are breast cancer free now or going through treatment with promising outlooks when finished.
I made a card last week that I designed and I made another card for today's project but this card wasn't designed by me. I was going through my piles of stickers and such and came across some beautiful breast cancer stickers that were sent to me last year. One of these stickers was the word HOPE so I had to use it as part of my project.
Please click on the card to see the embossed scroll work at the top
This is a 6 x 6 card.
Perfect Pearls Mist on the solid pink background to give some shimmer
Cuddlebug Embossing Folder ORGANIC for the design on the top of the pink part of the card
Stickles in cotton candy and waterfall on the heart and in waterfall on the design under the word "HOPE"
Distress Ink from Ranger in FRAYED BURLAP to give an old look to the flowered background
My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 paper pad THE SWEETEST THING for the flowered background (Contact Kim since this paper pad is one of her specials from her 6 x 6 paper pad club)
ATG adhesive tape to hold it all together
Thank you so much for stopping by today and remember to get your mammogram!

I see so many women wearing T-shirts with logo's on it so I decided to make a T-shirt card. My grandmother is a survivor of 25 years.
I used papers that I had in my stash white and pink with white stars and glitter on them. I cut the T-shirt size about 5.5 and the words Survivor I cut out at 1.5.
I used Scotch Quick-Dry adhesive to glue it down. Hope you like this card. Please stop by the store and check out all the great items and the monthly clubs Kim has going on. Thanks for stopping by, Have a wonderful day.
