Hello all!  This week for The Cutting Cafe design team, I used the Sewing Machine Set which contains a card and a box version.  I made two thank you cards, appropriate for any time but especially now.

I really like the way they turned out.  Here are individual pictures…

Christmas Gable Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Nov
Christmas Gable Box

Christmas Gable Box

Hey all!  Christmas is just about a month and a half away!  Where did 2016 go?  It was just summer!!!  Well it is time to get started making those little gifts for family, friends, co-workers, etc.!  The Cutting Cafe has the perfect new file to help you out with treat giving.

The Gable Box file come with a lot of variety so that you can customize your box for the occasion.  There are windows that come in different shapes, some have words in the window.  You can choose straight edge or scalloped edge. There are toppers you can add.

I made the plain box in white and used a black/gold/white paper for the topper pieces, then added a sentiment from the paper stack, and finally added a HUGE gold poinsettia clip that is just over the top!  The recipient can take the clip off and use it for decor or add to a package of their own.

Here is a view of it without the poinsettia…

Here is the box without the Poinsettia.

I see a lot of these in my future as the larger size can hold little gifts and the mini ones can be used for little candy gifts or favors.  Here is one more view with the huge flower…

Encouraging Hope Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Hope Card

Hope Card

Today for The Cutting Cafe, the design team worked on things for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I know a couple people, including a former co-worker, Molly, and my cousin Kim who have both just beat breast cancer and I am very happy for both of them!  It takes a lot of prayer and support for a person to make it through and these two are living proof that survival does happen and that God has the last word!

For my project, I used the Hope Shaped Word Card and the Breast Cancer Hershey Kiss Box Set.

Fall Themed Milk Cartons – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Oct

Hello there!  It has been a month since I posted anything!  I am sorry for the wait!  But today I have two cute milk cartons I made for The Cutting Cafe‘s Design Team!  These will house goodies for my god children. I used the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton cutting file.  The file comes with several cut outs.  I used the leaf and the pumpkin and added acetate to the window cutout.

My god son is nine and absolutely hates glitter so I still had to bling his up, just with acrylic pieces…

My god daughter is 3 1/2 and loves glitter!  So for hers, I used glitter paper and some glittered embellishments…

Blessings Book 

For this posting for The Cutting Cafe, the design team used the Autumn Sentiments Frame Card Printable Stamp Set. I used the Autumn Blessings version to make a blessings book.

What is a blessings book? When you are facing challenges or feeling sad, it is a place to write down the blessings you have received  in your life so you can remind yourself that if God blessed you once, He can bless you again!

I created this apple picture frame using the Apple Treat Cup Card file from The Cutting Cafe. The focus for this post is back to school and we could use one of four files. The other three are the Apple Shaped Card, Pencil Treat Cup Card, and the Pencil Shaped Card.

I used the top and the back of the treat cup and backed it with white chip board.  I added an easel on the back.
