Welcome to Creative Kuts Black/Orange Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled  for Friday Oct. 28 through Saturday Oct. 29. It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests. so sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects using the Creative Kuts files which you can find here at Creative Kuts.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you can start at the beginning with Lisa- http:/handmadewithlove-lisa.blogspot.com/ . If you just came from Lisa- http:/handmadewithlove-lisa.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot.

We are so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy and a great grand prize for this hop.  The Grand Prize for this hop will be $50.00 of Creative Kuts files.  The winner will need to contact Cheryl with your pattern choices at creativekuts@GMAIL.COM. in order to be eligible for the grand prize, you must follow each blog and leave 2 days of comments on each blog.

The hop is a 2 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice. Check out each Blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.
Here is the complete lineup:

SO FOR MY DAY 2 PROJECT!!
This is a simple little trinket box I picked up at Michaels  for 1.50. I brought it home and painted it black and just put little orange dots on the edges using the tip of the paint brush. I then embellished the top of the little box with the flowers that I made using the cut file
"Flowers Design Collection 1"
We have created tutorials on how to create this flower and 5 others on Youtube! Look to the right of my blog and on Creative Kuts blog and you will find a link to the tutorials!







Here is the completed little box!




This is front of the little box. You can't see in the picture (because I painted it) but it has a elastic cord that holds the box closed. 
Here is the little box with a dime on it to show you how small the flowers can be made and still look  GREAT!!







Here is a larger flower. This flower was too large to add to the little box, but again wanted show you the different sizes you can make with the cut file!


Now for my blog candy.... you must leave a comment here (both days)AND on Creative Kuts blog and Creative Kuts Facebook fan page  to be eliglible for $10.00 gift certificate at CK's store.

Thanks for stopping by 

Your next stop is Anna's blog

  4. The trinket box is beautiful. I thought the flowers were so pretty I had to watch the tutorial. I couldn't stop at the rose tutorial I had to watch them all. Thanks for sharing all your tips and techniques. I want to make some of the flowers using seasonal papers for my projects.

  12. So beautiful. I love the shade of orange for the flowers. You put the exact right amount of flowers on the box. Somehow I thought the flower file was a digi stamp. Hmmm.
