  Creative Kuts BAP

Pin It
Every week Creative Kuts offers up a free file for a BAP. What's a BAP? It's short for Build A Project.

This week our BAP is a really cute Graduation Cap Box. It will make the cutest gift card holder or party favors.

I am away in San Diego cropping at a retreat and I had to handcut it. The Cricut and Scal would have propably been my favored way to cut this but cutting by hand was really easy too.

 The Congrats Diecut on the top was cutout with my Cricut.

Want to get in on the next one? Go to Creative Kuts on Facebook and be sure to watch for the information on next week's BAP and upcoming ustreams.

  Paper Hoarder Tuesday at Ginger Snap Scraps

Pin It
Are you a paper hoarder? I most definitely am!! LOL! I love it and can never have enough. Kind of like me and clothes. I just love the different patterns and colors.
Well, today, Ginger Snap Scraps celebrationg Paper Hoarders everywhere. Our projects today use lots and lots of Patterned Paper. My project is a two page layout featuring me and my returning back to College in 2010. I Love the different Patterned Papers in the Crate Paper School Spirit Collection.
My Inspiration for this design came from a Close to My Heart layout shown in their catalog. I added Alphabet stickers from Love Elsie, a few buttons, and journaled on my computer. My stamped image "It's been too long" is located on the chipboard sticker over on the right side, center square. I thought it suited my layout perfect!
And of course most of the items I used came from Ginger Snap Scraps:
