Cottage Cutz - It's Picnic Time! :)



Hi Blogging friends!  It's been awhile since I've been able to craft/blog - I'll hope to share an update on that soon.  But for now, I wanted to share with you a new journey that started this April ... I'm delighted to share that I'm now part of the CottageCutz Design Team from The Scrapping Cottage!   You may have seen this news - life's curveball kept me from posting the same time, but today I'm excited to take you on a picnic!   Wouldn't it be wonderful to do this IRL, too :)  And what picnic wouldn't be authentic without some cute bugs to come along with us?!  Our virtual picnic includes a basket, linen tucked in and an adorable set of note cards inside the basket :)


For my CottageCutz post today, I made a picnic basket from a template I've had for awhile - I had fun making this again.  I added the beautiful Hummingbird and flower die to the front of the basket, nestled into this gorgeous ornate circle frame die.  I made a set of cards with similar patterns using the butterfly, grasshopper, ladybug and dragonfly die cuts.  And just like Noah, I thought the bugs should go in pairs of two :)  These dies are so crisp and clear and make a bold, beautiful impression!  When I was creating this picnic basket, I thought how nice this would sit on a teacher's, church friend, dr's office desk - reach in, grab a card as needed! :) 


Here is the picnic basket ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope to have some more creations to show you soon.  


Big Hugs,

Bigger Blessings!

Here are the die cuts again that were used to create the picnic package above:
