This week marks the new term for The Cutting Cafe Design Team.  Welcome to our new team members!  In honor of the new team, we could choose any file we wanted to work with from The Cutting Cafe for this week’s project.  I chose the Dress Shaped Card Template Cutting File and Invite Set.

I love the way my project turned out.  It is for a little 7-year-old girl in my life who was in a pageant recently.  She won the formal category, along with a couple other categories, and placed in the top 30 out of a lot of other contestants (148 others I think).  Her dress was royal blue and silver and it had organza ruffles from the waist to the floor.  The top was sleeveless and has silver sequins and beading.

She asked if I could “make her one of those things to put the pictures in.”  She meant a photo album but she couldn’t think of what it was called at the time she asked.  So, I made her one just for her to put her favorite pictures from the event in.  I can’t wait to see her face when she sees it!  She is going to love it!

I enlarged the dress shape 165% making it around 11.9″ x 6.5″ so it is a nice size.  I actually cut out old gift boxes as the page bases and covered them with paper.  I just added embellishments and a few fold outs so that she could get more than one picture on several of the pages.  Below are the individual pages and the video.  Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog on Wednesday afternoon for Inspiration Wednesday to see all the design team projects!  Leave a comment and you just might be selected to win three free files next week!
