A Stroll Down Memory Lane with Cut It Up Challenges!

Hey everybody!!
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday!!

Today I am back with a post for Cut It Up!

Cut It Up

Today marks the 100th challenge!! Wow right?? For those of you that don't know, Kimberly and I started the Cut It Up challenge blog together. We wanted a challenge blog that incorporated the use of any type of die cutting machine, not just one specific one. From there, Cut It Up was born. Unfortunately life got in the way of crafting for both Kimberly and I and we both needed to take a step back at that time. We thought about closing it down and almost did until Evelyn contacted me and asked if I would mind if she ran it. I am so glad that she did!! While Kimberly and I were sad to walk away, we felt better knowing that Cut It Up had a great new owner :) She is doing a wonderful job and the challenge blog and grown so much! We definitely handed over the reigns to the right person!

For my project, I decided to make a birthday/celebration card. 


I used some fun chevron patterned paper to cover my card base. I created my gray layer by using one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangles dies from Pink & Main. The party hat and the "celebrate" are dies from My Creative Time. I hand cut the banner and I finished off my card with some enamel dots and some shimmer on the hat's pom.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I hope you will stop by the Cut It Up Challenge Blog and take a look at all the fabulous projects from the past and present design team members.  :)
This was such a great idea Evelyn, thank you so much for thinking of it and including me!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Stacey, I love when I get one of your posts in my inbox. I always know that I'm about to be wow-ed. Your style is beautiful and inspiring.

Thanks so much for coming back and celebrating our 100th post. It was an honor to have you. Thanks again for letting me manage Cut it Up. It's been so much fun. And thanks for your very kind words. You and Kimberly laid the groundwork, and I couldn't have done it without all your help.
