Super-Sized Polaroid Frame – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame

Super-sized Polaroid Frame

Hello all!  I am a couple of days late posting my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, but it is too cute not to share!  This week we could choose any file we wanted to but we had to super-size it, that is, make it larger.

I took the frame from the Polaroid and Camera Fun Set and made it 10″ x 11 3/4″ so it could hold a 8″ x 10″ picture.  I also used my new custom stamp, Fantabulous, from The Cutting Cafe Shop.  I added some die cuts, a rosette, and some stickers and I love it.

I added easels to the back.

Thanks so much for watching and here is a video of my project…

Birthday Fun Cake Card

Birthday Fun Cake Card

Birthday Fun Cake Card

I made this cute birthday card for one of my husband’s staff members.  I used the BIrthday Fun Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  You can find clear stamps, ribbons, paper, clear cardstock, and other embellishments.  Also, you can have custom stamps made!

I used the cake and candle from the stamp set and the outline shape SVG file that comes with the set (it comes in PDF and other versions too). I added clear Wink of Stella to give the cake a frosty look and yellow Stickles for the flame.  I used a Spellbinders die set in peach and cream and gold metallic paper on top of a cream base. I added little gold Dazzle gem stickers in each of the circles of the die cut.

Both the sentiments on the front and on the inside are from the stamp set.

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

The Cutting Cafe Shop is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  The shop sells paper, ribbon, and stamp sets like the Birthday Party Background one that I have used here.  I stamped it with Staz On ink onto clear cardstock, which is also sold at the shop.  I used white paper to better show the stamp but here is what it looks like without it…

This shows the window in the box without the white card that I used to help show the words better.

The actual box is made with the Chinese Take Out Box cutting template.  This can hold candy or a little gift.  And it is quick and easy to do!  I just added flowers on the sides but you can attach a handle using brads as the file even cuts the holes for you to use.

I added a flower to the side but you can attach a handle to each side if you choose.

Birthday Party Fun Card – The Cutting Cafe Shop Design Team Project

Birthday Party Fun Card

Hey Everyone! I am here to share a couple new stamp sets that are available from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  These are great for all those birthday cards that you need to make and also for layouts or other projects.

I pulled out my embossing powder, which I haven’t used in eons and stamped the background using the Birthday Party Background stamp.  I used one of the frame cut files that comes with the stamps and put the stamped piece on foam tape for a little dimension.  The paper had copper foil, so I used copper embossing powder.  The heart balloon and party hat are made from the Birthday Party Fun stamp set and outline cut files that come with it.  I embossed those also.

I like the way these came out.  Make sure you also check out the shop as Regina is now doing custom stamps!  Yes, that is correct.  If you want to get a special stamp made, just provide the artwork and submit it with payment.

Check out my video below to see more about the project, the stamp sets I used and the custom stamp set made for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shirt and Tie Father’s Day Card

For my design team project for The Cutting Cafe this week, I used two files, The Shirt and Tie Cutting File and the Different Ways to Say Dad Background Printable Stamp.  I added buttons and metal paper clips that say love you.  The pocket and hankie are part of the file.

I think it came out adorable. Be sure to stop by the blog and see all the design team projects.  This week we could use whatever files we wanted to so there will be quite a variety.  Here are pics of the inside and back.  I used an Anna Griffin die for the Dad on the inside.

Elisha Jean and Friends Embellishments – The Cutting Cafe Shop Design Team Project

Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends Embellishments 2

Embellishments using just the faces

I am back with a new design team project for The Cutting Cafe Shop!  I made some cute embellishments using the Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends stamp set.  I used the whole doll stamps on some and just the faces on others.

I used scraps from recent projects along with some stickers and foam squares. I have seen many videos making embellishments and decided to try some.  I had fun making them and will make more in the future as it is a good way to use up scraps and use your punches.

And lastly, I made paper clips which are all the rage these days with the planner craze and the popularity of flip books.
