Click on the pictures to get a better view of the new CB embossing folders

Good Morning
Well it's back to work for me today! Mind you i didn't get any crafting done on my week off as settling Connor back in school and it's been a bit stressful I can tell you!
I did manage to get my DT project done for the Cuttlbugspot though!
Aymee on the DT set the challenge this week and Nilda asked us to use embossed confetti in our projects. That is to emboss some paper/card using a Cb folder cut into strips and use as confetti within a project.
Well I really had to put my thinking cap on for this!! and this is what I made.
I used the popcorn box cut from Tags Bags cricut cart and in design studio gave the box 3 oval windows which i put acetate behind and embossed the acetate with one of the new UK exclusive CB folders snowflakes. I cut 3 sizzlet snowflakes to put in the centre of the windows and some little cuttlebug snowflakes in gold and some red gems. I made a matching little sleeve to hold Santa's milk. The tags are computer generated font is LD Saloon in red on white card cuttled again with the snowflakes folder then matted onto green card. I cuttled some red and green patterned card with another of the Uk exclusive folders this one is called Ice Crystal. Before cuttling it I computer generated some messages for Santa in red and green (font LDJ Miss me) then cut in strips and concertina'd to go on top of the choc chip cookies for Santa! All the card used is from DCWV Christmass glitter stack. Just made a couple of bows and added to the tags.
After photographing these I drank the milk and me and Connor shared the cookies Yum yum!
I wish Connor was still little he would have loved leaving these little messages for Santa on Christmas Eve with his milk and cookies!
I hope you will join us at the Cuttlebugspot this week and don't forget to check out the DT's creations they are fab! There's a great prize for the winner too!
Have a great week everyone!
