Twas The Night Before Christmas...... (CottageCutz Deer and Moose)

I used the fun DEER die from Scrapping Cottage exclusive CottageCutz die and the MOOSE also from Scrapping Cottage exclusive dies CottageCutz. The rest of the designs on this layout were handdrawn and colored in with markers. The tree is made from Mulberry paper, if you have never tried Mulberry paper, you must, it is so fun to work with, and the ornaments are brads. The moon was colored with metallic colored chalk ink.

Scrapping Cottage has exclusive dies that you can only purchase through their store. They are very detailed and easy to work with. They are also made in the USA!!! Customer service is AWESOME!! And you are able to use them in your Revolution, Epic, Big Shot, Big Shot Express (the BS require an adapter just like when you use Quickutz in the BS)
I love these dies and anyone who hasn't tried them yet is really missing out :)

My favorite is this adorable treehouse!!
This is a very detailed die, yet the pieces are big enough to work with. I had so much fun with this die, I decided to make one page for my girls and one for my boys. I also used the cottage cuts lemonade stand die to make the signs.
(no girls/no boys allowed signs)
These dies are great! Everytime I order CottageCutz I have no worries of being disappointed with the die when I get it. As a matter of fact, they are always better than I expect. I love these dies as you can tell, so try them for yourself and see what all my rave is about!!!
