OMG OMG OMG.....Can you tell I am excited?????????? As you all may know I have been a fan of Peachy Keen Stamps for over 3 years now. Then a couple of months ago I was honored when she asked me to join her DT. I was thrilled of course. My fellow DT members are just so awesome and it makes me sad that we all live so far apart!
Wellllll.......I have such exciting news! (Make sure you read all the way thru for the info on how to win...11 chances and then some so don't miss out!) We are having a Super Fun Blog Hop to celebrate!!! At the bottom of this post you will find a list for the order of the hop and more details.
The The Scrapping Cottage and Peachy Keen Stamps have teamed up to bring you amazingly crisp thin metal die sets featuring some of Kathy Jakopovich’s most whimsical and fun designs! And guess what? You’ll even receive coordinating Peachy Keen face stamps inside your package of Cottage Cutz® die shapes! Whaaaat!? This is so much fun; The Scrapping Cottage and Peachy Keen Stamps have never offered a bundle like this before, and it will be pre-sold exclusively on The Scrapping Cottage and Peachy Keen Stamps’ websites starting Monday, July 19th. Pre-ordering begins tomorrow, it is 25% off entire collection or 15% off single sets. This pre-order special will be available until Monday, July 26th, after that they will be regular priced. So don't miss out on your chance to get these dies at a steal! Remember all but the bird comes with a face stamp (the bird's face is already embossed so you don't need to stamp it!).
What are Cottage Cutz®? They are an exclusive thin metal die line brought to you by The Scrapping Cottage. These thin metal die shapes are made to work with many embossing/die cutting machines on the market today. They cut incredibly well, and like Peachy Keen Stamps, are produced at the highest quality standard.
Since this post is going to be sooo long you can click HERE to see all the different adorable dies.
We literally got these dies hot off the press so we didn't have much time to play with them. Each DT member was given a die to showcase and I received the adorable Gingerbread men/ladies :) I used them as well as the accessory set and a few more I snuck in 'cause I couldn't help myself.
I wasted so much time deciding which one to use and what to make it with. I decided just to play around and see what I could come up with. First I was amazed on how these cut. These will work in almost any die cutting machine. You may have to shim it with card stock or something depending on your machine/paper but I used the Cuttlebug and I didn't have to shim it at all. I have a couple more super cute and fun projects in the works but due to time and some well..some health issues I didn't finish in time :(
I cook a lot and I am always giving out goodies to neighbors and friends so I decided to make some simple tags and cards to give along with it. Here are some pics of the projects I came up with:
I used the FROM MY KITCHEN cartridge to cut out the cutting board. The sentiment is from PK-408 Gingerbread Doll Set
I cut the Igloo out from the Create A Critter cartridge and welded it in my Design Studio to make it into a card.
This is a PlaceCard that I made with the Christmas Cheer placecard feature. You can use any placecard feature or just fold a piece of paper in half!! I did it in blackout so it was just basically a blank template. I then sewed around the DP and added those adorable dies.
