Jewelry Sets – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project Featuring Joy Clair Stamps

21 Apr
Jewelry Holder Set Featuring Joy Clair Stamps

Here is the box and necklace file with Joy Clair stamps added.

For this The Cutting Cafe design team project, some of us collaborated with Joy Clair Stamps to create our projects.  I used the Jewelry Holder Set from The Cutting Cafe to make earring and necklace holders and boxes, and the Shine Bright Stamp set from Joy Clair.

One of my staff is heading a fun fair for her school and my mom made jewelry for her for the silent auction.  I wanted to make a couple of cute boxes so this is what I came up with.

I altered the file to remove the earring holder section and cut slits to make it a necklace card.

Here is the second set…

Popcorn Box Vase

Hello everyone!  This week for the Cutting Cafe Design Team projects, we worked with the Popcorn Box file and it is filled with multiple options like two sizes and styles of box, scalloped edging, printed toppers, and many different sentiments.

I used confetti printed paper and a cut apart from the Confetti stack from DCWV. I added the scalloped top option and bling at top and around the middle.

Pumpkin Pillow Boxes

Pumpkin Pillow Boxes

It has been a while.  Hello!  Today for my The Cutting Cafe design team project, I have made some cute pillow boxes with pumpkin cutouts.  I used the Pumpkin version of the Halloween Pillow Boxes.

I added an optional layer around the pumpkin and backed the opening with acetate.  I added a resin leaf at the bottom for an accent.

Steampunk Tote Bag Purse and Mini Wallett

Steampunk Timeless Tote and Wallet

My Steampunk version of the Our Daily Bread Designs Timeless Tote and Wallet Dies

I am in the Steampunk Fantasy Collaboration with Poetspice on YouTube, which runs from July 25 through August 29, 2018.  I am usually a clean and simple crafter but like the steampunk genre and have a good stash of steampunk paper, stamps, and embossing folder and thought this would be a great way to use some of my stash.  I also have had the Timeless Tote and Petite Wallet die sets from Our Daily Bread Designs for a couple months and have not had a chance to play with it.  So, why not a steampunk version of the purse?  This is how it came out…

Lip Balm Favor/Gift Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 May
Lip Balm Box

Lip Balm Favor/Gift Box

Hello All!  This week for our design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we used the new Lip Balm Chapstick Holder Set.  The file comes with a few variations – a box, and a single holder that you make a cover out of clear acetate or paper which you can give as is or add to a card or tag.

I think this one is so cute.  I made the box which holds three lip balms.  You can decorate for men, women, boys, and girls and they make great favors for showers, parties, friendship exchanges, teachers gifts, co-workers, grab bags, etc.

I added a shaker element to the window of my box but you can use acetate or velum instead.  I just added some bling stickers and a sentiment from the file on both the front and back of the box.
