Welcome Welcome One and All

Welcome to all! 
Today I was asked to be a guest designer for

Creative cuts and More Die cut Diva Blog Hop
 If you are here from the hop you should have came from 
Lisa Somerville's Blog. Isn't she so talented?
If you didn't maybe you would like to go back and start at Die Cut Diva Blog so you don't miss anything

If for some reason one of the links is broken along the Hop do not worry, HOP back over to Die Cut Diva Blog where there is the complete list of blogs
Terry allowed me to choose anything I wanted to play with. So I hope you enjoy my choices- I know I did.
I hope you think about trying some wonderful die cuts for your next project ideas- let Terry know I sent you.

I made these quick bookmarks with Decorative label -small. I just stamped some cute sayings I had from a Stampin Up set.The ribbon slide is from Maya Road, and the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Double faced the ribbon so both sides were pretty to look at. 
 How about some treats? I used the Pumpkin Picture frame- small. I had Terry cut these in the tacky tape option.
Added some of my favorite HL paper to one and left the other white- and inserted a Stampin Up treat cup. Even added some orange twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon too make them hangable.How about those cute roses and leaves?

Oh I was so thrilled when I received this Arch Window A6 Card with Shutters
I knew instantly I had to make this Fall scene- Used Gold leafing to make the window look like stained glass.Stickers from Cloud 9 Designs to make the door panels.
I used Signs of Autumn stamp set from Gina K designs for the fall decorations. The wreath was made with a small leaf punch I have, scraps of card stock in various colors.Gold brads for the door handles.
The inside of the card was made with CTMH stamp set Welcome Home.All the ink colors used are from CTMH.I actually stamped each piece and cut out individually- pop dotted a few to give dimension.

My last project today is this Card Portfolio.  
I had this paper in my stash and it just matched this Ivy Green Bazzill paper base.
The image on the front is from Karen's Doodles and was colored with Copics:;cut out and pop dotted to the front. The stamp sentiment is from Hero Arts.Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I thought this would make a great gift idea to give someone- I showed a card on one side and a picture on the other side to give you a few ideas to use.
The next stop on the blog hop is Darsie Bruno
You will be thrilled with Darsie's post today.
Thank you so much for joining me today- I had so much fun playing with these wonderful die cuts- so excited  to be asked to be a guest. Stop back soon, I was asked to
join Creative Cuts and More's-Die Cut Diva's hop again next month-Yippee!
