Happy Easter Shaker Card – Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

7 Apr
Happy Easter Shaker Card

Happy Easter Shaker Card

Hello Again!  I make a cute shaker card for my design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  I used the Happy Easter Overlay Template and added acetate, foam and sequins/seed beads/tiny shapes to create the shaker.

The file comes with the card base and a background piece so making a shaker was very easy.  You can also just use the overlay on top of the backing sheet, making it with maybe glitter paper or patterned paper.  Either way would be cute also.

Make sure you stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog.  We post design team projects on the 7th and 21st of each month.  Leave a comment and you just might win three free files of your choice in a random drawing to be held on the following design team posting.

Mini 3D Shadow Box Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

Mini 3D Shadow Box Card

It has been a while since I posted but I am slowly but surely coming back!  We moved and I haven’t fully unpacked my craft room yet.  But I am digging out things to do cards and projects for.

This card is a design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  It is the 3D Shadow Box Card Template and has many options, different shaped openings, layers, and sentiments.  I chose to alter the size and make it 3 x 3 inches so I can use it as part of a swap that my friend Scrapdaworld is hosting.

Here is the inside…

I added a glitter heart in the window but you can add pictures, sentiments, etc.  Also, if you keep the embellishments relatively flat, you can fold the card flat and put it in an envelope.

Reflection: My Favorite 2018 Project for The Cutting Cafe

21 Dec

Hello Everyone!  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Whatever You May Celebrate!  Since it is a busy time for everyone, for this posting of design team projects for The Cutting Cafe, we were asked to reshare our favorite project we did for 2018.

That is sort of a hard task for a creator of anything as everything you create tends to become your favorite of the moment.  I looked at my projects for this year and there were a few that I was going between as my favorite.  I was going to select two because I just could not decide.  But, without further ado, the project that I chose as my favorite this year is…

Typewriter Shaped Card

Typewriter Card

The typewriter card I created this summer for a staff person celebrating her 25th work anniversary was not my usual color palate but I loved the softness, but yet the sparkle of this card.  I made it with the Typewriter Shaped Card file.  To see my original post on this project, along with the video of it, click here.

You’ve Got This Custom Word Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Custom Word Card

You’ve Got This Custom Word Card

The Cutting Cafe now offers custom word shaped card files!  So if you have always wanted a name or phrase you could never find, now you can have a file made for you in a PDF or cutting file!  Find the details here.

For out design team projects, we got to have a custom file made for us to use.  I chose the phrase, You’ve Got This.  I also requested a couple sentiments, Don’t Give Up, GIrlfriend, and With God…. You can have a few sentiments too.  This time I am using the card as a goodbye and good luck type of card so I did not use any of my sentiments.  I just added a few velum/bling flowers and added clear glitter marker to every one of those polkadots!
