A CUTE Cutesy Cover...


Hope the rest of the weekend treated you well.  I had planned to post this yesterday, but life happened.  Never got a chance to find the camera, and get the photos off of it - lol.


Anyway -- I made this Cutesy Cover © for my niece's birthday gift.  She's 13, and I tried to come up with something that would appeal to her.


I can't WAIT to be able to show you more of what Lauren has in store, some of the new papers coming out are DELISH -- but for now, I'm sharing with you some of what I already have on hand.

The polka dotted paper is from the digi kit that my blog design was inspired by -- "Peace, Love and Happiness, by Libby Weifenbach.  You'll see I made it into double sided paper, using another pattern from that same kit.  I LOVE that kit -- lol.


To print your OWN double sided paper, just print, reload, and print the other design on the opposite side - easy peasy!  I just recently started using matte finish double sided brochure paper.  It has AMAZING results.  The colors are so vibrant, and I just LOVE the look!  I got mine at Staples, but I don't see it listed on their site...which makes me nervous -- maybe I should go stock up! ;)

This was cut the original size with my Cricut, and the little jewelry box fit inside perfectly!


I used a big Martha Stewart border punch for the Raspberry layer, and tied it up with a little avocado ribbon.

It closes with a basic grey magnetic snap, so she can use it to re-gift, or find something else to keep in it.

So, have you used the Cutesy Cover © template yet??  or any of Lauren's new templates?  I'd love to see what you've done with them.

Thanks for stopping by!!
