Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop!

Hello blog followers and visitors from the Die Cut Diva Blog Hop! Welcome!!! You’ve probably just come from Angie’s blog…If not, you can start at the beginning by going to http://www.diecutdiva.com/. You really don’t want to miss out on all the great projects and the blog candy they've got! And, as if you needed more motivation, they have a 15% coupon code for all who visit that site! I ADORE coupons!

I have two projects for you today. For those of you who have been here before, you probably know that I have a fetish for boxes. OK it’s more of an addiction.
For this project, I used the French Fry Box in Caramel Curious Metallics, Leaves #03 – mini in Bronze Curious Metallics, and the Buckle #01 Set in Cappuccino Curious Metallics, and I have to say, I am all over these cuts and colors. This is probably my favorite box cut out of all five of the ones I chose for my projects this month. It’s gorgeous! I don’t know if you can see it in the pic, but the paper shimmers and just looks really rich and elegant. (And I love elegant!) The paper is nice and thick too. I can’t say enough about it. I love how it stands – perfectly. I’m happy just looking at it!

This other project uses their Basket with Handle in Tangerine Blast Bazzill Smooth. It’s such a fun and versatile basket. There’s another great project using this cut for Easter that you can see on the website. And don’t forget to get that great Red Tacky Tape! It’s a must for these boxes!
Now head on over to Carla's to see what amazing things she has in store you!!! Thanks for stopping by!

The bountiful harvest box turned out awesome! I love the choice of colors as well as the scrolls behind the ribbon. The ribbon buckle is great too...reminiscent of a pilgrim's hat or shoe buckle. Cool!
