Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Guest Designer

Hi all! I am so excited to be a Guest Designer today for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  
Lisa has such cute Cutting Files and such a great variety.  So easy to put together as well...

Today, I have showcased three different projects using a variety of Cutting Files.  
For my first project, I have created a simple Christmas Tag using the Christmas Stocking Cutting File.

Here is my tag!
 For the tag, I used Elegant Edges for the tag base and Stocking 1 from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.
 The sentiment is from Cardz TV Christmas Joy stamp set available at the Cardz TV Store. I added some Emerald and Cherry Glitter Glue to the Holly and Berries on the top of the stocking.

For my next project, I created a gift using the K Cup Treat Cutting File and the Java Great Day Cutting File.

Here is my project...
 From the Java Great Day Cutting file, I used the Coffee to Go and K-Cup Cutting File. I added a Peachy Keen face to both cups!
 The sentiment is from Cardz TV Brew Ha Ha! 

For my 3rd project, I used the Lego Mania Cutting File and the Master Builder Cutting File.

Here is my 2 page layout...

For my card I used the Print and Cut feature on my Silhouette.

My image is from Kadoodle Bug Designs and is called Surfing Bear. I believe it is now retired however she does have a similar image found here called Beach Bears.

Cardz TV 3D Challenge #4: Masculine Birthday

Hello everyone! Happy Friday....
It has been NUTS to say the least in New Brunswick.  We were hit hard with Tropical Storm Arthur and the worst of it, in our community.  We were 4 1/2 days without power, and there are some that still do not have power.
But I'm finally back to crafting and feel SO much better!

Our challenge this week over at Cardz TV Challenges is to create a 3D project for a Masculine Birthday.
For my sentiment I used my Cardz TV Stamp set called "You're The Man" available at the Cardz TV Store.

For my project, I made a Tool chocolate bar box for the hubby. He's been cutting down so many trees lately, he deserves a treat!  The box and tag are from SVGAttic.com and is from the Tools Rule SVG set that can be found here.
 The finished project

 The chocolate bar inside the wrench

Tag with sentiment from You're the Man stamp set from Cardz TV available at the Cardz TV Store.

We are hoping you'll join us for this fabulous Challenge.

Materials Used:
*Recollections cardstock
*Tools Rule SVG by SVGATTIC.Com
*"You're the Man" stamp set by Cardz TV
*Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
