This week at The Cutting Cafe we focused on Easter.  I used the Bible Easter Verses Printable Stamp Set and I paired it with the Cross Shaped Card Set.  I used a lavender card stock and a shade lighter paper for the inside.  I topped the cross with white glitter paper and added a red glitter heart.

I printed the verse on white paper and put it on top of a rectangle Spellbinder cutout that I popped up on foam dots.

Turned Up Embellishment Swap on YouTube

Turned Up Embellishment Swap Packaging

Turned Up Embellishment Swap Packaging

I participated in a swap on YouTube hosted by my friend Tmika (Scrapdaworld on YT) for which we had to make a stamped tag with some type of trim or embellishment at the top, a hand made fabric flower, and two embellishments, i.e. stick pins, charms, etc.  Then we had to include three coordinating trims at least 24 inches each.

We could choose to be in either a shabby chic group or a vintage group which I chose.  There were four in a group so three had to be sent in.  I used a sewing them and made my tag from a spool file , used a sewing machine file (both from The Cutting Cafe) to hold stick pins which had mini spools on them, and used sewing paper.

Here are more photos…

Flower Pot Shaped Card 2

 

We are thinking Spring at The Cutting Cafe! This week we had two files to choose from, The Flower Pot Shaped Card which I used and the Sentiment Stems and Flower Top Printable Stamp Set. I really liked making this flower pot shaped card.

Minnie Mouse Themed First Birthday Party

22 Mar

My god daughter has turned one year old!  It is hard to believe it.  That time flew by!  I looked at many blogs and websites to research Minnie Mouse parties and came up with a multitude I liked.  I was able to find a cake that both her mom and I liked, as well as free downloads that others openly shared.  As a result, we celebrated last night with family, decked out with Minnie!

I first started with an invitation.  I used a free printable and SVG file from Sherry K. Designs (see the file) and cut the head and bow out.  I layered it on top of a black card base, pink paper, and fuschia polkadot paper.  The personalized label came from The Cutting Cafe and is called the Baby Girl First Birthday Colored Tags/Toppers.  The inside invite page is from Catch My Party and was also a free set.

Of course I had to make the perfect card to go with the gifts and used the Dress Shaped Card 2 from The Cutting Cafe along with another version of the customize tag used on the invitations …

Green Birthday Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Birthday Cards

Birthday Cards

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we focused on the color green and could use any files we chose. I pulled out some of my tools, like Spellbinders dies and some punches, that I had not used in a while to make birthday cards that showcase a couple of the many printable stamp sets available from the shop. I used the Birthday Fun Printable Stamp Set and the Birthday Greetings Inside and Out Printable Stamp Set.

For the first card, I used both sets.  The cake image is from Birthday Fun and the sentiment is from the greetings set.

Hourglass Shaker Birthday Card

Hourglass Birthday Shaker Card

We are shaking up some fun at The Cutting Cafe this week with a whole new line of shaker cards!  There are 13 different versions and you can find them all here!  I used the hourglass version to make a 50th birthday card for a friend.  Of course I used black and gold for the honor!  I kept the card very simple in hopes of making the shaker 50 and the hourglass the focal points.

Here are a few more pictures…

Craft Room Name Plate – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

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…
