Craft Room Name Plate
I have wanted to make a name sign for my craft room and videos for a year now! Well this week for my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, I used two wonderful new files to help me do so. The Paper Flower Set and the Layered Flowers Set are two files Regina created to help all of us make some gorgeous flowers. The layered set also includes some great cards! My friend Tmika aka Scrapdaworld on YouTube also did a video to show you how to put the flowers together. You can view it here.
I used the Paper Flower Set for the rose and the Layered Flowers Set for all the other flowers. They were really easy to do! Plus you can make them larger or smaller as there are many sizes in each file. Plus Regina always makes the files in PDFs so anyone can use them by hand cutting the components.
I love how you can make the flower as many or as few layers as you choose which also gives you more variety. I layered them in many ways and added zebra bling or pearls in the centers. Here are a few more views…

I love my new sign and both of these awesome flower files. Head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog on Wednesday afternoon to see all of the design team projects using these two files. Leave a comment and your name may be pulled next week to win three files of your choice! Thanks for stopping by. Check out my video before you go…
This week at The Cutting Cafe, we had a fun file to spark our creative juices. The Fun With Blocks file is so versatile and come with so many different options and variations! The possibilities are just endless! Make sure you check out all the design team projects on the blog on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday. Be sure to leave a comment as you just might win three free files in next week’s drawing!
I chose to make a countdown calendar with the file. The blocks are numbered on each side. You can countdown to anything, a birthday, vacation, anniversary, etc. All you do is move the blocks to show the numbers you need and go down a number each day. I made it in a spring color since I am REALLY wanting spring to be here now. Of course it is blinged out with mesh bling trim and glitter letters. The sentiment says everything you can imaging is real. I thought that would give me motivation for the countdown…whatever the countdown will be! Here are a couple other views…

I thought I would take a few minutes to share the cards I made for Valentine’s Day. I tried to keep it simple by using cutting files to save some time. First up is the card I made for my wonderful hubby. I always try to make something a little non-traditional for him.
Hugs & Kisses Card Front
Hugs & Kisses Card Back
This was a cute file I found in the Silhouette Online Store. I just added a few stickers for embellishments and I was finished. Next, I made a card for my parents…
XOXO Card Inside
This is made from the Valentine Window Card Tops file from The Cutting Cafe. This file is very versatile as it has about 15 versions of toppers you can use. We actually used this file last week for our Design Team Project. You can see many versions on the blog post. The sentiment came from the Valentine Mini Sentiment Background Printable Stamp Set at the Cafe. Next up is the card I made for my little god brother.
I Heart U Card
I Heart U Card Inside
For this quick and easy card I use The Cutting Cafe’s I Heart U Word Shaped Card and the Feb. 14 Printable Stamp Set for the inside tag shaped sentiment. Last but not least I made a card for my aunt whose birthday is on Valentine’s Day…
Birthday Love Version 2
Birthday Love Version 2 – Inside
This is actually the second version of this card. I made one for the design team project I mentioned above. It is again using the Valentine Window Card Tops file that I used above for the xoxo card. This is just another version of the tops included in the file.
Well, I hope you all will have a glorious Valentine’s Day. Thank you so much for stopping by and here are a couple of my videos that showcase three of the cards…
Handmade Embellishment Box and Flower Headband
It is time for another design team project from The Cutting Cafe! I needed a little gift for my god daughter’s first Valentine’s Day. So I made a flower headband and packaged it in the Handmade Embellishment Box from The Cutting Cafe, which happened to be one of our project file choices this week.
I used black cardstock for the box and a pink patterned paper for the back or hanger part. I used old product packaging for the window and added embellishments. The bow is from the Bow Tie and Ribbon Set file, also from The Cutting Cafe.
The back is patterned as the paper was double-sided which gives a nice finish. I love the hanger cut out as if you are making things for a store or a craft fair, you can package little items in this box. Below is the headband.
Handmade Flower Headband
I used gorgeous pink and black lace from Elegant Embellishments on Zibbet, and a handmade flower that my friend Tmika aka Scrapdaworld on YouTube had on a package she gave me. I added some little pearls around the center and put the flower on a stretch ribbon to make the headband.
I love the way it turned out. Please head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see all of the design team projects for this week. Other files we could use were the Paper Beads file with the Jewelry Holder file. Also, when you visit, leave a comment. You will be entered in a drawing next week to win three free files of your choice! Before you go, thank you for stopping by and here is my video…
I cannot believe it but this is my 100th post! Wow that went fast. I am dedicating this to the memory of my grandmother who just passed away last week. My grandmother turned 103 on November 2 and was doing very well. But she said she was tire and ready to go on. So…she did. I am sad, but also happy that she passed away with no pain and in total peace! She will be missed but we have our memories to hold on to.
My dad wanted to do some photo boards and was just going to put pictures on a board until he thought about it and called me to see if I could do it. I had a very busy work week this week and I drive 70 miles each way to work. But, of course I found time to make these photo boards that will be displayed at her funeral tomorrow. They are nothing overly decorated, just simple things that fous on the pictures. Here are the three boards I made.

Birthday Love Card – Angle View
This week at The Cutting Cafe, we were all given just one file to work with. The great news is that this one file is very versatile and has many versions to choose from.

Here are some other views…
