Ecraft Projects

Earlier this month I purchased an E-Craft cutter.  I have been looking at this cutter for over a year now and really liked the idea of not having to use a 'sticky mat' when cutting.  I have been playing with it since and yes wasted some paper, good and not so good, during the playing process but I did manage to make some fun things with it.  These are my "Treat Boxes" I made for our adult friends we visited on Boxing Day.

Treat box filled with home made goodies. 

Close up of one of the boxes.

I got the idea from Denise at when she posted her "Christmas with the E-Craft" week.  This is the project for day 6.  Thank you Denise this was a great project and had a lot of fun making it.

My layouts for the colours yellow/orange and green

I am taking a course at Big Picture Classes called: Colour.  Or is it Color?  Really enjoying these classes and learning lots.  Like never having the right paper or embellishments.  And I can tell you I have lots and lots of stuff.  But OK I am doing my best with what I have.  The hardest part for me is really picking the right pictures for this.
But here are my layouts for the colour yellow/orange and green.
