Football Gift Bag - Tammy

Are we ready for some FOOTBALL???
Today Tammy has made the Football Gift Bag for us to enjoy!
You can change the letters to whatever you want for your team as Tammy has done here!
I have chosen the Football bag to do as my next DT project. 
I have done it in the colours of the High school my kids go to.  They are the Hammarskjold Vikings.   Always nice to cheer on your home team.
I imported the file with no changes made to it and it makes a bag that is 3.75" x 5.25".    It is the perfect size for a couple of bite size snack treats.  I used a transparancy to cover the hole inside the football.  I used cardstock form Michaels, and CTMH Desert Sand Ink for the smudges, and Liquid glass to make the button on the helmet shiny.   Hope you enjoy

House Candy Box - Marji

Today Marji has made for us, the House Candy Box
what a cute fun little treat box this is!
Here is what Marji had to say:
I've had this file for a while not sure what to do with it but I knew I had to have it. So I finally decided it needed to be done with Fairy tale paper.

The house has crowns scattered all over it in gold glitter so I added some more gold glitter to embellish the house.

The little heart on the door is covered in glitter and the door knob is a gem stone.

All set and ready for some yummy treats!

We are having my daughter's birthday party in a few weeks and it's a Rapunzle theme so I might make them as favors for the kids to take home.

Rolled Flowers - Melissa Pinter

Today we have a project from Melissa where she has used two of our rolled flower files.
Here is what Melissa had to say:
Happy Tuesday! Today I am showing off two fabulous Creativekuts2 files. I made a Ribbon Rolled Flower and a Rolled Petal Flower.
Here they are.....
I made these using Red and Green Cardstock and added some Angle Glitter Spray to the Petals.
I displayed these flowers on a Wooden Oval Board from Micheal's. Then I added some Cream and Red burgundy Paper and used Decoupage to it. Then inked the edge with Brown Martha Stewart Ink. The image that you see is from a Magazine and I cut it in sections so I can make a 3-D image pop! The images is popped up 4 times if you look closely! Then to add even more of a Vintage look to this Home decor Christmas Image I used Lace Ribbon and made a bow and placed a Vintage Snowflake embellishment to it!

3-D Haunted House Card - Bye to Dana

Dana made this fun 3-D Haunted House Card as her last project for CK2.  We will miss you so much Dana and wish you well in life and hope to see you around CK on FB :)  Thanks so much for all of your Hard work & Beautiful Creations!!!
Here is what she had to say about her card:

For my Haunted house card I used DCWV halloween patterned paper on the roof. The bats, and windows I used Bazzill textured card stock. Everything else is plain colored card stock. All pieces were inked with matching distress inks. For my ghosts I used TH weather wood for the edges. My bats, small tombstone and the background ghost are raised on pop dots. This project makes a great 3d card or awesome desk or table decoration!

Scallop Popper Box - Tammy Bour

Today we have the Scallop Popper Box from Tammy Bour. How cute to give for Halloween filled with treats to some very special Goblins.
Here is the Scallop Popper Box which I have decorated 5 of them up for Halloween. I used the file for the box from Creative Kuts2.
Here is the direct link for it:
The cost of the file is only $3.00 and there is so many possibilities with this for decorating it up. I also used the ghost and a bat from Creative Kuts store on the popper boxes and the candy sticks.
Here is the direct link for this file which also has many other pieces in it:

In this picture I also included a file from a cricut cartridge on one of the candy sticks.

Welcome Marji - Flower Pot Card

Today I would like to introduce our newest team
member for CK2, Marji Franklin
Here is what Marji had to say about herself :)
I've been paper crafting for close to 20 years, I started out with rubber stamps and have evolved to using my Cricut for most projects now.   I love creating and turning a plain sheet of paper into an amazing card, box or 3 dimensional masterpiece.   It is my form of therapy, I can escape to my desk and for a few hours get lost in the paper and glue.  My husband or 3 year old daughter usually have to come dig me out to eat or remind me they are still in the house, lol.
I have been married for 13 years this October and our daughter Emily is our world and keeps us laughing.
It truly is my passion and I hope you can see that in the projects I share with you.
Here is Marji's first Project as a design Team Member with CK2, The Flower Pot Card

I just love this card, it is so fun and cute and can be given for so many different occasions even as a just because card.
You can find this file in the CK2 store here:
