Cuttin' and Stampin' - Challenge #49: Pockets

Most of you know that I've began working with an online store called "Cuttin' and Stampin'".  I am absolutely LOVING being back in the industry!!  With each scrappy job I've had, I've made friends and learned so much.  This time is definitely no exception, and now YOU can learn and play along, too because they have a challenge blog!!  I am filling in for one of the girls over the holiday so I'm pretty excited to be here with you!

Challenge:Anything Goes with a Pocket

December 10th - 16th, 2013

We are thinking about pockets.  Everywhere you look in scrapbooking and card making, you see pockets.  All of the design team projects are using Sn@p December Documented paper this week to create something with pockets.   

We were supposed to use Simple Stories "December Documented" line so I cut down the 6x6 pad and made my own Pocket Cards. :)

I also used the following supplies that can all be found here in our store:
December Documented Paper
Style A Page Protectors (Project Life)
Wink of Stella Pen (clear) on the candy cane (gives a subtle shimmer...hard to see in the pic!)
Black Rainboots Thickers (Santa)

I actually used a die to cut this little gem out.  It's the Lawn Fawn 3x4 Journaling Die.  Made cutting the cards MUCH easier and quicker!! :)

Please make sure your creation post has a link back to Cuttin' and Stampin'

Thanks for playing along we will be announcing the winners on December 20, 2013.

Silhouette Challenges - December - 3D

It's the first of the month again and time 
for another Challenge here at Silhouette Challenges!

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Ch# 8 3D
Begins: Sunday, December 1
Ends: Saturday, December 31

Sponsors this month are:

Prize: $10.00 GC

Prize: $15.00 Amazon GC

For my December project, I've just put together a cute little treat box for Bug's dance teacher. :)  It's got some twine and treats inside of it.

I am not going to lie - this box was a PAIN to put together!  I used this shape from the Silhouette store.  The top was quite tricky to get it to stay closed!  If you try this and have it work successfully, please let me know what your secret is!!
