Cottage Cutz Wednesday

Today is Cottage Cutz Wednesday at The Cuttlebug Spot! This is my first go at using these dies and I have to admit, due to how thin they are I was really leery of how they'd cut cardstock but was I impressed! I am totally digging paper piecing using these dies - and I am not much of a paper piecer!!

So, I got to work with the Treehouse dies - I wasn't sure about how it was going to end up - like I said I am not a paper piecer, but I like the outcome!

My card:


Now doesn't that look a treehouse any kid would love to play in - I know I'd love to play in it now! Everything you need to create the treehouse, including the tree, is included in the 3 pack of dies from Cottage Cutz.

I have 2 other dies laying on my desk that I can not wait to get into this weekend when I scrap with Cait - one is going to be perfect for a layout I've been wanting to get done of my cousin David and I from when we were growing up - I can't wait to play!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
