Getting Ready for Christmas - November edition

Hi everyone, Doris here with the
November edition of
Get Ready for Christmas
at Crafting by Designs.
It's only 5 weeks away so I need to
get going with my stash of cards!
Here's my project for this week's challenge:
I decided to go thru my scraps drawer and pulled out a
few pieces of paper to play with; I used an embossing folder
then cut that into 3 sections, added a piece on top of that
and topped it all off with an embellishment from K&Co and
a sentiment from Paper Smooches.  These
went so fast I think I'll make a batch of them :)
Hop on over to Crafting by Designs HERE and enter your
Christmas projects by November 25 for a chance
to win 2 digi stamps from this week's sponsor

Welcome back Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenges!

Hi everyone, Doris here and I'm so
excited to be a part of the Design Team at
Cuttin' and Stampin' once again!

We took a little break, but now we're ready to get started again,
and hope you're join us.  This week we're kicking things
off with a Thanksgiving challenge.

The design team will feature products from
Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn collection
and an adorable stamp from the
Unity Stamp Company Gobble Gobble.
These products and more are available in the
Cuttin' and Stampin' Scrappy Supply Store

A Perfect Autumn 6x6 Pad

A Perfect Autumn Chipboard

Gobble Gobble

I decided to make a 3d pop up box using my Silhouette Cameo
and the products above and had such fun. 
Here's my little project:

There were lots of little pieces in this project, which is
good because I got to use a lot of the patterns from the
Carta Bella paper collection.
The Gobble Gobble stamp from Unity fit perfectly
on the front flap, and I paper pieces his lovely feathers.

Come on over to Cuttin' and Stampin' and join our
new Biweekly challenge HERE until November 24
for your chance to win some yummy goodies!
