We are doing something a bit different for our Design Team post for The Cutting Cafe. We are sharing a look at our crafting spaces today. Although my room is a total hot mess right now, I found a picture of it cleaned up. Here is what I see when I walk in.
A little over a year and a half ago, I cleaned up and rearranged my room. It is still set up that way and I did a craft room reveal on YouTube. Since my room is too much of a mess to show right now, I will share that video, which also features two of my DT members and very good friends who were visiting for a crafty weekend.
But before I share the video, just a couple of things. Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see the craft rooms of some of our DT members (and I am sure you will see Regina’s fabulous room – she is the owner of The Cutting Cafe and her room was featured in HGTV magazines and a couple of others). We do post on the 7th and 21st of each month. When you visit, leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice.
Thanks for stopping by! Now, here’s that video…
Bat and Ball Cards
This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project. Baseball season just started so I decided to use that theme as this was a free week and we could choose any file we wanted to.
I chose to use the Bat and Ball Shaped Card Set and made two different cards.

Pop Out Book Vintage Birthday Card
Woot Woot! I am on the eighth week of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays! I hope that you have found some inspiration to help you with cards for the men in your life! Today’s card looks pretty simple from the outside. But when the recipient opens it up, bam…
There is a pop out book insert. You can use any theme you want. I chose to go with a vintage feel and used numbers and words for the pattern and sentiments. I also added some little black corner stickers and metal numbers.
You could also use wooden embellishments to keep it vintage or maybe brighten it up with metal pieces. I also matted the back…

For my sixth episode of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays, I decided to tackle St. Patrick’s Day since that is coming up on Friday. This card can be for any man in your life depending on the sentiment you add to the inside which looks like this…
I just double matted the inside. I plan to add a cream or light green mat with sentiment on the right side.
I thought the Beers to you was clever and you have a ton of choices to use for the inside sentiment. I give several in my video, which can be viewed below, but a couple of examples are: and the luck of the Irish too or I am lucky to have you in my life.
Thanks for stopping by, Happy St. Patrick’s Day early, and take a peek at my video before you go!
Mini Shaker Mason Jar Embellishments
This week at The Cutting Cafe, it was all about jars. There are many files to choose from but I chose the Jar Shaped Cards file and used the mason jar with window. I sized it down quite a bit to make them mini.
These work well for swap gifts and exchanges. Here is a sample of packaging for that purpose…
