Sew Much Fun !!!

 My first  Cottage Cutz DT blogpost is up today !

I was so thrilled to have the Cottage Cutz latest releases in my hands that
I simply had a little die cutting frenzy with my Cuttlebug machine .
I started off diecutting with scraps of neutral colored cardstock - brown , white ,kraft
and then I worked them out with My Little Shoebox's Sew Cute papers .
Here are the die designs that I tried out first -

I did not have many pre-conceived ideas for my first project
except that I was going to use some of the die cuts together
on this step center card and I knew I would want a dressform at least.
So from my random die cutting , I put a few designs layered up
and this center panel came together quickly .
Essentially, I used the oval frame and ribbon from the Cameo and Oval Frame die ,
the dressform from the Sewing Machine and Dressform die,
the heart for the ribbon center is from the Laundry Line die.

After I finished my center panel , I then decorated the rest of the card
with My Little Shoebox Handmade pp, cardstock stickers and journalling spots.
I snuck in a little kraft button on top of the heart button sticker -
cut with the Sewing Notions die .

This was sew much fun for me , and it was just mainly using glue and paper
and of course these adorable Cottage Cutz dies,designed by My Little ShoeBox .;)
