40 New Age Lane Birthday Card!
It is Inspiration Wednesday at The Cutting Cafe and our theme this week was home. We had two files to choose from, the Welcome Home Printable Stamp Set, or the House Shaped Card & Envelope Template Cutting File, which I used. My cousin turned 40 this past weekend and was home for her big one, so I made this card for her.
I tried a new technique with my Silhouette Cameo on this project. I used the fill feature in the Designer Studio to fill in the yellow polkadot pattern, the and the red elements on the card. Then I layered the pieces onto the house shape front piece and sent it to my printer. I hand cut it but could have gone a step further and used the print and cut feature, a nice feature wit the Cameo.
Here are a few more pictures…

My hubby asked me to make a couple cards for him. Of course I waited until the last minute as it was a busy weekend. So I kept them simple. I thought I would share them. Thanks for stopping by!

Classic Car Shaped Card
It is Wednesday and time for another Cutting Cafe design team project. This week’s theme…Father’s Day of course. We had wonderful files to work with this week. I chose to use the new Classic Car Shaped Card and it was so much fun to do! I absolutely love the shaped of the card, and all the trim that comes in the file. I chose to use silver metallic paper for all of the chrome and I added white-walled tires! The possibilities are endless with this file because there are so many pieces.
The other files we could use were the Shirt and Tie Cutting File Template Shaped Card, and the Cruisin’ by to Say Hi Car Set Printable Stamps.

I have been watching mixed media projects on YouTube for months and have been saying I am going to do one someday. Well someday finally happened! I did one for my dad for Father’s Day. It was a process, but I am happy with the way it turned out for the most part. I will start with showing you the photo of some of the elements I chose to use and the piece once I put the texture on and glued the elements on and covered it with gesso…
Mixed Media Canvas – Choosing the items
Textured element used along with tissue paper and modeling paste
Once the three layers of gesso was dry, I painted it with acrylic paint and Lindy’s Stamp Gang, and Tattered Angels sprays. The finished canvas looked like…

I used a lot of elements but did not use any flowers since it was for my dad and featured a little boy. Here are a few close up photos of the gesso phase and the completed project.

Baby Brag Book
It’s time for another project for The Cutting Cafe! This week we had the theme of baby! This fit right in for me as my staff person I made the baby shower items for, had her baby so I decided to use the Diaper Shaped Card & Invite Set Template – Cutting File, and the Baby Boy Hershey Kiss Bottoms Printable Stamp Set to create this brag book for her.
I used my Zutter Bind It All for the first time (I have had it over a year!) It was really easy to use. I kept the embellishments very simple on the inside. I just used stickers since I had to make sure the book would close. I really liked the way it turned out. Here are more pictures…

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we got to work with a file that I am excited about. I actually asked Regina if she would create a Viewmaster reel and she did! Thanks Regina! It is a wonderful file and includes a card, reels, and sentiments and labels. The actual title of the file is the VIEW FINDER REEL FUN SET and it is indeed fun!

View Finder Reel Card and Envelope
I made two projects. The first is a card and envelope for my cousin’s birthday. I used a piece of Anna Griffin gold foil and cream zebra print paper. I love it. The view reel is an overlay to the word reel. Here are a couple more shots…
Next, my hubby’s birthday is coming up this week, and I wanted to do something other than the traditional card. So I made a viewfinder 8 x 10 framed card…
View Finder Reel Framed Card
I used Simple Stories patterned paper and solid cardstock to create the reel and mat so to speak. I created thumbnail photos with a free thumbnail maker I found online an inserted them in the reel frames. I love it and hope he does too. Here are a few more photos of it…
