Now let’s get things going for my project!  I chose to work with the Camera Treat Cup Card and Keepsake Box Cutting File and Template which has options to make a card or a box that can hold up to sixty photos, a small mini album or folio, or other gift items, and both feature a lens that can also be filled with treats if you so choose.  Without further ado, here is my beautiful cameral box…

Grad Word Album – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 May
Grad Word Album

Grad Word Album

Hello!  It is design team time for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we were given the opportunity to work with word or shape books.  There are many to choose from in the store but since graduation is coming and I have a cousin that is graduating, I chose the Grad Word Book.

It comes with the pages and the single letters to use on top as an additional layer.  I used his school colors and kept it simple enough so that he can put a few pictures from the day in it.  Here are a pictures of the inside…

I have never made a word book and had fun making this one.  For specific details, see my YouTube video below.  Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog today or sometime this week to look at all the design team word and shape books for plenty of inspiration.  When you stop by, leave a comment because we love reading them and because you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice on the next posting which will be May 21!

I did a one-on-one mini album swap with Sandi who is Decor8yourlife on YouTube.  She likes both vintage and shabby styles so I sort of combined the two.  Here is a series of pictures…

Flip Book Swap on Crafters with Artitude on Facebook

I made my first Flip Book!  I participated in a one-on-one swap with Kamisha who is VisionsofParis115 on YouTube through the Facebook Group Crafters with Artitute!  I had just learned about flip books when the swap went up so I thought what better way to jump in.  In a way, the flip book is the new pocket letter.

I decided that I wanted my book to be more than a pen pal letter so I went more of a photo book route with it and I hope Kamisha is ok with the direction I chose.  Here are some pictures…

Hello All!  It’s time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we were to use the Sentiment Stems and Flower Tops Printable Stamp Set.  This set has many variations of stems, some with words, some with designs.  They come in two sizes and several ways, straight, curved, and wavy.  The choices are many!

Christmas Treat Bag Toppers and Hershey Kiss Bottoms

Merry Christmas just a bit early!  If you are looking for a last minute cute little gift, these Treat Bag Toppers from The Cutting Cafe will fit the bill!  This file is packed with variations galore!  It has two size bags, with or without a window, and 17 different topper options!  I am showing you three but I am making 30 for staff and co-worker gifts!

Here is the tree version…

There are overlays in the file, which the tree is cut from a different color.  I chose only to put one on the front.

Here is the back.

One could be added to the back if you wanted to which would cover up the part that folds down in the back.

I also used the Christmas Hershey Kiss Bottoms Printable Stamp set on the kisses I filled the bag with.

Lastly I made two gift card holders using the Gift Card Holder Set.
