Cutting Edge Magaine DT Project - Money Envelope Project

Hi All,

As i was going through a list of al the projects that I have created blogs for I came across some posts that I had not shared.  This is one of them...


Hi Everyone,

Yes I know it has been a bit over a week since I have posted but a lot has transpired.  First, I GOT A GAZELLE!!!!  I am super excited!  And it is up and running.  It took a minute to do because I was facing opposition I needed a new/used computer so that it would not interferre with the main PC that Hubs uses to work on.  So got that squared away, finally, and I AM IN LOVE.. This is a beautiful machine and I am looking for things to cut.  :D  I have been working on projects in the meantime though.

Today I am showing a project with a wedding theme.  Being that wedding season is upon us.  I love everything about weddings except for the family drama ;).  Never the less, after purchasing the engagement present or bridal shower gift or the wedding gift for the happy couple, we tend to also give the newlyweds a bit of cash to help them start their new life.  And that is where the money holder comes in.  Instead of just giving a card I used my beautiful Gazelle, a phrase from Ms Kate Cuttables and a file from My Grafico to create this Money Envelope.  I love how this came out.  The file is set to be used as a vertical pocket.





I wanted to add a BIG sentiment so I cut the flap down just a bit so it matched the other side, glued it all together and viola!  I adore this project. Quick and easy and perfect.  This can be used for other occasions than just a wedding day but I just love how it came out.

I added some Distress ink to the letters to help them stand out and not blend into that beautiful lace.

What I used...

Summer Fun Flip-Flop Box


Hi Everybody,

August marks the end of summer and a time to start putting away summer stuff and bring on the sensible shoes. Since there will be few times where flip flops will be ok to be worn I used my Gazelle and created the flip flop box. I chose to put candy in my box but it would be a great place for summer treasures found.






I used the Flip Flop Box file from SVG Cuts
Cardstock by Recollections - Jewel Tones
Patterned Paper by Colorbok - My Girl
I used Chipboard: Cereal box for the base of the  bottom and lid
Embellishments used is a Michael’s) Flower, and flatback pearl rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it inspires you to create your own summer keepsake box.

Kelli
