This week, for our The Cutting Cafe design team project, we got to play with the Assorted Pop Up Cards file.  It comes in two formats, with a single pop up or a triple pop up inside.  I chose the single pop up.  I also combined it with the Grad Hat Shaped Card file.

Clean and Simple Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Clean and Simple Card

Clean and Simple Card

Happy New Year!  Welcome to my first post of 2017.  This post marks my fourth anniversary as a design team member for The Cutting Cafe!  Check out my very first post for the team here.  I still have that project proudly displayed in my craft room!  I have loved bringing you projects for the shop and hope to continue to bring you inspiration for a while to come!

With that being said, for our first project of 2017, we were tasked with doing a clean and simple card using the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 1 or the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 2.  I used the first set and used two sentiments from the 1a set.

I used additional Spellbinders shapes on the inside and matted a second sentiment from the file.

Scrapdaworld’s Christmas/Winter Tag Swap – My Entry

4 Dec
Tag for Scrapdaworld Christmas/Winter Theme Tag Swap

Peace Ornament Tag

My friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube always hosts fun swaps.  This time it was a Christmas/Winter shaped tag swap.  I had a different tag in mind but I had technical difficulties with it lol.  My Cricut Expression was just not cooperating!

So, I came up with this tag and I like it.  I glittered the tag in stages and it worked well.  I really like the white and gold.

I made a box envelope to package them…

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.

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.

The focus of the projects for this post is the With Gratitude Printable Stamp Set.  This file has over 70 images including many sentiments in square, round, and rectangle shapes, background images, and borders.  Some come in color as well as black and white and some come in a couple different sizes.

I also used the Large Top Box template .

I used one of the treasure word definition sentiments on the front of the box.

I wanted the box to look great from both sides so I added another sentiment on the back…

I printed the circle printable background from the file and usedit to cut out the liner pieces of the box.

A great thing about the Large Top Box is that it adjusts to whatever you need to go in it as it slides to fit.  Here is it with nothing in it…

When you add your goodies the top will just sit on top of your tallest item.  Here is what I put in mine…
