Halloween Tag by Cindy

Hi everyone, Today it's my turn to post on the Cutter's Creek blog. I have seen tons of cute Halloween tags on Youtube and decided to make one myself. But...I have to have some kind of practical use for it so I decided to add it to a giftbag for my sister's birthday. Her birthday is the day after Halloween so it works!

Isn't it fun? I covered a plain white giftbag with some G45 paper and then made my tag using Prima Paper Doll stamp and tag, some Cricut cuts, stickles, lace and some other odds and ends. Be sure to watch the video!

Thank You Card by Fran

I want to share a Thank You Card I made for a special lady who made Chuck and me a Cross to mark Butch’s (our pet dog) grave.  I tried a new product (new for me) on the card called Fran-tage Encrusted Jewels.  You can purchase Fran-tage from Cutters Creek Online Store.
(Click on photo for a closer view)
If you like to see a great demonstration of  how to use this cool product go here to watch a YouTube video.
Card Details: 
Card Base, Tag, and banner all made using Neenah Card Stock in Ivory. 
Pink paper from my stash was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Mesh.
Fran-tage on the tag and butterfly is called Shabby pink and Shabby Blue.  Plus I added Aged Gold.  In addition I added some Shaved Ice fragments that gives a Mother of Pearl look.
The tag was cut using my Cuttlebug and a Die by Marianne Design Creatables (LR0154).
The flowers, butterfly, and pink filigree swirls are from my stash.
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink on the edges of the card and banner for a vintage look.
And the card is held together using two of my favorite adhesives: Glossy Accents and Tombow Permanent Adhesive.
Attached adhesive pads to the banner for dimension.  And the banner was created in Paint Shop Pro adding the small butterfly on the corner.
All the flowers were painted with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  And the pink filigree swirls were painted with Clear Glaze 3-D Glossy Ink pen by Sakura.

Michele's Halloween Banner

Halloween is next week and I wanted to make something I could hang but not too scary. I found this SVG file I had for a banner. This files works on machines that are compatible with SCAL, like Craftwell eCraft that Kim sells in the store.  When I bought this file it comes with all the pieces you need to re-create the project.  I cut out the  pumpkin pieces, out of orange paper, the middle of the pumpkin a peach color, and then I used some yellow, for behind the eyes, black for some eyes, nose and mouth and white for some of the teeth. 


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.

Belated Birthday Card by Deanna M

I had to make a birthday card for a co-worker's birthday that we missed. I started with a wooden flower embellishment from Kaisercraft. I painted the flower using Sailboat Blue Paint Dabber. Once the flower was dry I embossed the flower with some Bodacious Blue WOW embossing glitter embossing powder.

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.

Trick or Treat

I've been spending a lot of time trying to get my scrapbook room organized and put everything in a place that makes sense. In doing that, I've become reacquainted with things I haven't used in a while or, even worse, forgot I had. I found this little Tilda holding a pumpkin and knew I wanted to color her. 
She's so cute and perfect for Halloween time. I colored her with copic markers to match the colors in my favorite My Mind's  Eye paper. It's hard because the colors in the paper are so muted. I matted the image with a couple of rectangle nestabilities and then finished the card off with a Cutters Creek gardenia.

I guess it's time to put my Halloween images and paper up for another year. I've had a lot if fun playing with some old friends.

Beautiful Pink card by Cindy

Hi everyone,

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.

Fight Like a Girl!!! By Deanna M

I am sure you are aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Cutter's Creek Design Team is encouraging all women to get their annual mammogram!!! So I have a Breast Cancer Awareness card for you today!

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.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


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.


Supplies:  Tombow Mono-Adhesive Permanent DispenserInkssentials Glossy Accents.

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.

Thank  you for stopping by, Fran

More HOPE and breast cancer awareness by Jearise

It's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that is why my projects have included the famous pink associated with breast cancer. 

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.

Products used:

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!

Think Pink

October is breast cancer awareness month and you sure to see a lot of pink. We're honoring breast cancer with pink projects all month. I chose this cute image from La La Land Crafts that I've had forever and never inked up until now.
I colored Marci with my copic markers to match the colors in the Echo Park paper. The frame around the image is a nestabilitie and I sanded it to make the polka dots stand out more. I finished the card off with some silk flowers and a cutters creek gardenia. 

Remember to think pink this October and  protect yourself.

Awareness T-Shirt by Michele

This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness and we here at Cutter's Creek are promoting that and reminding all women to remember to get your yearly 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.

Breast Cancer Awareness Card by Jearise

This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness and we here at Cutter's Creek are promoting that and reminding all women to remember to get your yearly mammogram.

Today, for this special month, I have designed a card and would like to share with you my creation. A dear friend, who is a breast cancer survivor, asked me to make a special card for her and this is what I came up with.

The word HOPE stands for the hope that all women and families have that some day there will be a cure for all types of breast cancer. The hearts represent the love we have for those affected by cancer and the flowing ribbon in the background represents the bind between every families' love and hope: love for the one affected and hope for a cure.

Products used and where:

Scotch Quick-Dry adhesive to hold it all together
Perfect Pearls Mists in "forever red" on hearts and "pink gumball" on HOPE ribbon
Stickles in Cotton Candy on background ribbon
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in tea dye color for edges
6 x 6 paper pad called HONEY and from "the sweetest thing" by Jen Allyson for My Mind's Eye and Kim's 6 x 6 paper pad club. Email her about all her different clubs!

Thank you so much for joining me and until next time...Best of everything to you.
