Cuttin' Up With Class first Challenge!!

Welcome to the inaugural "Cuttin' Up With Class" Challenge. I created two projects for this challenge, a card and a goodie bag.
This is a super cute gift bag! I used Jani's pumpkin file and chose the shorter of the two pumpkins. I used Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's "Fun Favors SVG Templates" available at My Grafico.

The face is a Doodblebat font "DB Jack-O-Patterns 2" (Letter G) I used some glossy accents on her lips, a couple of leaf brads for her earrings and I used some Fabric Stiffening spray to make the curly tendrils from some twine. I used two different twines, one from Trendy Twine (I love this twine, the colors are so gorgeous, Thanks Bee) and some from The Twinery. I added a bow and she is ready for some gifting fun! :-D
My Second project is a Pumpkin Pirate card. I used Jani's pumpkin file, this time I chose the taller pumpkin, I created a shadow, duplicated it, mirrored one of the two images and then welded them together to create the card base. I cut the pumpkin and inked the edges in black to make my Pirate scruffy. I used the "DB Jack-O-Patterns 2" (letter Z) again to create the pirate face, I did not cut  the left eye and substituted the eye patch from the Lettering Delights svg set "Aye Matey" and the pirate hat is from the Lettering Delights "Hat Hoopla" svg set, I used Trendy Twine's Halloween Twine to attach the eye patch. I used a Joy's Life stamp from her "Halloween Puns" stamp set.

Come on over to the Cuttin' Up With Class Blog and join in on our challenge and win great prizes and get free svg files created by the super talented Jani!!  I as so happy that Jani asked me to be a memebr of her Design Team with her new "Cuttin Up With Class" Challenge Blog, I look forward to all of the fantastic challenges!! Thanks Jani!!

Gnome Gift Box

I made this super cute gift box using the "My Time Made Easy"  Carry It Cut set. I also used the Lettering Delights "Good Luck Gnomes" svg set. The doors and windows I created using basic shapes. The door knob is a paper fastener. The roof is glitter paper and the stamp is from Joy's Life's "Wildlife Puns" Stamp set. The papers (other than the main box paper and the glitter paper) are all Echo Park papers.((Wow the typos! LOL can you tell I am feeling under the weather and when I am sick my brain refuses to work!))

I am a Child of God Plaque and a Freebie!! Also Link Up for Pink info!!

(Actually three freebies!! Woo Hoo) I created this plaque for a new baby girl (who has since arrived and I have even held her!!) My wonderful Hubby routered the edge and painted this plaque and I used to different colors of vinyl to create this.  I added some ribbon to be used as part of the wall hanging. I also used two different fonts in three different sizes for visual interest. The Mom (in the pic) loved this gift and I am so glad!! I am giving y'all the svg file for this saying and I am also adding two svg files for a wavy banner that are similar to the retired Sizzix Creative Memories wavy banner die(these are available over on the righthand side of my blog under the "My Free SVGs" Heading. Enjoy your freebies!!

An Apple and A Pumpkin

These boxes from Kelleigh Ratzlaff are so super cute! This is actually a pumpkin but it makes a great apple too with a quick change of paper. The leaves are from my super huge svg stash LOL. To make the stems I used a clear straw, used some Scor-Tape to go around the straw and then wrapped it with some twine I bought at Wal-Mart. These boxes would make great teacher gifts filled with some candy. (I want mine filled with Ferrero-Rocher candy! LOL)

Y'all need to go check out Kelleigh's files, they are all so cute and easy to work with, I am loving them!

Scrumptious Sweet Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Scrumptious Sweet Blog Hop, hosted by the Fabulous Yolie. If you have arrived from Norma's Blog then you are in the right place, if you just came to visit, Welcome and please start at the beginning so you are sure not to miss a single fabulous thing!! I created two projects for you and neither is a card! LOL. The first project are two wonderful and fun Cupcake Boxes.
Both of these fabulous boxes are  from Kelleigh Ratzlaff, I used DCWV papers from their Nana's Kitchen Stack and the Ball Fringe is from hobby Lobby and the pink lace trim is from Michaels. I love how fun and flirty these boxes are, they will also hold a plenty of fabulous Chocolates!! (my gift of choice!)

This next project is one that I have had on my "to Do" list for a while. I have had these large glass jars for a while, I believe that I purchased them from IKEA. I used MTC software and the Font "KontikiEnchanted JF", It was included in a Font Pack from my Yahoo Font Group. I cut these out of red vinyl at 6 inches long and 3 inches tall. We recently painted our kitchen a pale yellow with bright white trim and I want to go with red accents (red is my Favorite color) I love the way these turned out and I filled them with my 2 year old's Favorite cookies and snacks! (needless to say they are gourmet only to the 2 year old set! LOL) 
Leave a comment here for a chance to win a mini album kit and if you are a Facebook Fan leave a separate comment for a second chance at the blog candy.
