It’s A Creative Cuts & More Christmas Blog Hop!



I’m tickled to be a Guest Designer
this month for Terry at
Creative Cuts & More!

If you came here from Holly Brown’s blog then you’re in the right place. If not, no worries, just go back to Die Cut Diva where you’ll find the entire list.

Our theme is Christmas. CCM has all kinds of projects (in a bazzillion colors and textures) to help take the stress out of creating! They come cut, scored…ready to pretty up!

And to help with your Holiday Creating….

Terry will give away a Christmas card kit.  All you need to do is

  • Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment on each one.
  • Then go back to Die Cut Diva and say that you commented to be entered into the drawing! 


Now, here are my projects!
I chose a
Pop-Up Card and Match Box.



This is Blessed Christmas and the Poinsettia Die from Our Daily Bread designs. It’s colored with Copics and Pearl Glimmer Misted.

The DP is Basic Grey Jovial. I used Martha Stewart’s Holly punch, American Crafts velvet ribbon and some bling I had in my stash.

Nov17Hop inside

This is what the inside looks like with the “pop-up”. The Serpentine Green Stardream Metallics cardstock is just beautiful!
I embossed the base with Cuttlebug’s Scrollwork.
Holly Tag set and Tag Die by Our Daily Bread designs on more of the Jovial. I partially cut the tag layer with the die then finished with the holly punch.


Easily put together, this Match Box #01 large (Kisses-Bazzill Criss Cross) is the perfect size for any little gift!
More BG Jovial and AC velvet ribbon. The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Tag set.

Nov17Hop pearls

I didn’t have any red pearls or rhinestones, so I colored these with a Copic!

Now, it’s time to hop on to Lisa Somerville who I’m sure will amaze you with more CCM!

Thanks for stopping!

Two presents! That beautiful card has to count as one. And Lisa is right it would make a wonderful gift tag holder! I love Blog Hops!

Hello my friend!!! You have outdone yourself with these gorgeous inventive creations Dawn!!! I have many of CC&M's boxes, bags, etc...but you have inspired me to take another look as I love that pop up card. I also love your added holly punch! If you have time, stop and see the sleigh I created from CC&M.

Hope you and yours are doing well...say hello to the llamas (sp?)for me!!

Dawn- this is AMAZING - Beautiful and I just love that you colored those pearls! Now I have NO EXCUSE as to not having the right color... BUT I am not going to tell my husband that when I "need" to go shopping! LOL
