Masculine Cross Shaped Card

This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project to create this Easter Card.  I used three files from The Cutting Cafe:

The Cross Shaped Card Set, the Believe Shaped Word Card, and Easter Mini Words Printable Stamps.

I used shades of rust and the pop of color is red.  I whipped out an old paper pad to find the rugged wood paper for the cross overlay.  The inside is plane for now until I decide who will received the card.

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…

Christmas/Winter Themed Shaped Tag Swap

24 Nov

My friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube hosted another great swap featuring gift tags.  I made a shaker window scene for my tag, including curtains, snow, and a deer.

Basically we had to make a shaped tag using at least two embellishments and it had to have to and from on the back.  I placed my tags on a matted card.

The deer is more visible in this picture.

Then, I bagged it in a clear bag and added a candy cane striped clothes pin with a snowflake added to it.  In the back a bag of goodies is attached.

This is how the tags were packaged.

I really like how my tags came out and I hope the ladies in my swap group like them too.  Thanks  for stopping by.  Here’s my video giving more details…

Inspirational Mini Album and Tag Swap

Inspirational Tag, Mini Album, and Goodie Box

Inspirational Tag, Mini Album, and Goodie Box

I was approached by a fellow YouTuber, Tina, who is TellHimThankU on YouTube to see if I would like to do a one-on-one swap.  I agreed.  I suggested an inspirational mini album and she suggested a tag instead of a card.  We also were to swap goodies of around $10.

Below are pictures of the mini album and of the tag.  The tag was one of my Cutting Cafe projects a few weeks ago so check out my older posts for more detail.  After the pictures, I will also have both the album and the tag videos which will give you more detail.  Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas/Winter Shaped Gift Tag Swap

2 Nov
Fireplace Shaped Gift Tag

Fireplace Shaped Gift Tag

My friend Tmika, Scrapdaworld on YouTube, held another awesome swap and I loved being a part of it!  She hosted a shaped gift tag swap a couple of months ago (check out my tag post) and this was a variation on it.  I decided to do a fireplace for my tag and I actually love it.  At first I struggled with it as I had used wood grain paper for the mantle and bottom.  It was just too brown and had no pop whatsoever.  So I dug into my Christmas paper stash and found this paper.  The pattern scale was great as I needed a 12 x 12 sheet of paper to cut out all I needed and most of the patterns were too large.

The tags had to be shaped and had to have at least two embellishments, a to/from on it, and had to have some way to hang it.  I used a lot of metallic, glitter, and foil elements.

I love the mantel as I draped tinsel ribbon wrapped with miniature lights and hung glitter stockings.  It is so cute, just like a real Christmas Mantel.  I started to put candles and statues on top if it but I thought they would not be as durable since they would just be little pieces with no backing for stability.

I used a resin log for the firelog

I found resin logs from Michael’s fall Recollections embellishment line.  They were longer, I just sawed them down to size.  I also used some of my glitter to actually put glitter on the fire.  The bricks are a texture paste.  I was going to use brick printed paper and when I told Tmika what I was doing she suggested using a texture paste.  I am glad she mentioned that as I had not thought of it and really like it on my tag.

Fireplace shaped box for packaging

The Silhouette Online Store just added a fireplace box gift card holder and I thought it would be perfect packaging.  I resized it and used Tim Holtz’s frosted film over a layer of clear film that actually was the wrapper from the Silhouette mat I had just opened.  There was a little bubbling of the film but not a lot.

All six of my tags.

There are five other members of my group and I also made one for Tmika.  Three have red garland and three have green garland.

I had fun with this swap after I got through the paper issue.  I really loved the way they turned out and I hope that my group members will also.  Thanks for stopping by.  Before you go, take a look at my YouTube video…

Shaped Gift Tag Swap with The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project Packaging

High Heel Shaped Tag with The Cutting Cafe Packaging

High Heel Shaped Tag with The Cutting Cafe Packaging

This week for The Cutting Cafe, our theme was packaging. This was perfect timing as I was also in a swap hosted by Scrapdaworld (details coming further in the post). I used the Homemade Just for You Set for the label wrap, which actually is a cut file that is included. Then I used two sentiments from the Test Tube Candy Holder Set.

Make sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th to see all the other design team projects focused on packaging! Leave a comment and you may win three free files in the drawing on the 21st of the month post!

Now, for the swap, we had to make shaped tags, use three embellishments, have to and from on it, and only use general sentiments.  There were six in my group so we had to make five, but I made six so Tmika (Scrapdaworld) would have one. Below are a few more pictures and my video.  Make sure you check out Scrapdaworld’s You Tube channel.  She will be putting up videos of all the swaps.
