14th Word Shaped Cards

For this posting of the Design Team Projects for The Cutting Cafe, we focused on word shaped cards that pertain to Valentine’s Day.  I chose to use the 14th Shaped Word Card, which can be versatile to be used not only for Valentine’s Day but for anniversaries, years, or a special date.  I made two different ones.  The first one features sentiments from the This Cake is All Heart, a printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe.

Valentine Nugget Candy Box Holder – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

For our design team posting this time for The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file we wanted to use.  I needed some little trinket holders for gifts so I used the Nugget Candy Box file.  The original purpose is to hold four Hershey nuggets.  But, I chose to use it for something else, thus showing the versatility of the files.

The file comes with three top options. The first is a with a heart cut out.  You can leave it open or use acetate to make a window.  I chose to line the inside with black cardstock and add a foam heart sticker.

The second is a rectangle cut out.  Again, I lined the inside of the top with black cardstock.

The third is a plain top, which I decorated with the heart cutouts from the heart top.

This week at The Cutting Cafe, it was all about jars.  There are many files to choose from but I chose the Jar Shaped Cards file and used the mason jar with window.  I sized it down quite a bit to make them mini.

These work well for swap gifts and exchanges.  Here is a sample of packaging for that purpose…

Mailbox Treat Box

Hello everyone!  This week at The Cutting Cafe, the design team is all about Valentine’s Day.  Since we all have men in our lives, I decided to make my project with the men in mind.

I used the Mailbox Template and Cutting File Set.  There are two mailbox versions.  I used the second one and used non-traditional colors to give it a more masculine feel, as well as some brads that look like screw heads.

I used the patterned paper on the sides also.

I used some of the printable sentiments that come with the set on the back…

It’s time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  We post our projects on The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month.  Make sure you stop over to see all the projects.  If you leave a comment, you will be entered into a drawing held on the next post.  The winner gets three free files of their choice!  Plus we love reading the comments!

Now on to my projects.  This time we were able to choose any file we wanted to use from the large collection of Valentine themed files.  I actually chose four different files to work with.  I made little treats and cards for staff.  First I used the Hershey Kiss Window Card file along with the Lots of Kisses Printable Set for the sentiment.  I made two different cards, one more pink based…

The sentiments are designed to look like the paper strip that hangs out of the kisses.  But I also used the Happy Valentines Day version of it on the inside under my stamped sentiment…

Those hearts on the inside of my card were the cutouts from the box and the card and I used another sentiment on the front of the boxes, and I randomly added little dots of Stickles on the front of the boxes for a bit of added bling…

Valentine’s Day Cards

14 Feb

I thought I would take a few minutes to share the cards I made for Valentine’s Day.  I tried to keep it simple by using cutting files to save some time.  First up is the card I made for my wonderful hubby.  I always try to make something a little non-traditional for him.

This is made from the Valentine Window Card Tops file from The Cutting Cafe. This file is very versatile as it has about 15 versions of toppers you can use.  We actually used this file last week for our Design Team Project.  You can see many versions on the blog post.  The sentiment came from the Valentine Mini Sentiment Background Printable Stamp Set at the Cafe.  Next up is the card I made for my little god brother.

For this quick and easy card I use The Cutting Cafe’s I Heart U Word Shaped Card and the Feb. 14 Printable Stamp Set for the inside tag shaped sentiment.  Last but not least I made a card for my aunt whose birthday is on Valentine’s Day…

This is actually the second version of this card.  I made one for the design team project I mentioned above.  It is again using the Valentine Window Card Tops file that I used above for the xoxo card.  This is just another version of the tops included in the file.

Well, I hope you all will have a glorious Valentine’s Day.  Thank you so much for stopping by and here are a couple of my videos that showcase three of the cards…
