It is time for another design team project from The Cutting Cafe!  I needed a little gift for my god daughter’s first Valentine’s Day.  So I made a flower headband and packaged it in the Handmade Embellishment Box from The Cutting Cafe, which happened to be one of our project file choices this week.

I used black cardstock for the box and a pink patterned paper for the back or hanger part.  I used old product packaging for the window and added embellishments.  The bow is from the Bow Tie and Ribbon Set file, also from The Cutting Cafe.

The back is patterned as the paper was double-sided which gives a nice finish.  I love the hanger cut out as if you are making things for a store or a craft fair, you can package little items in this box.  Below is the headband.

I used gorgeous pink and black lace from Elegant Embellishments on Zibbet, and a handmade flower that my friend Tmika aka Scrapdaworld on YouTube had on a package she gave me.  I added some little pearls around the center and put the flower on a stretch ribbon to make the headband.

I love the way it turned out.  Please head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see all of the design team projects for this week.  Other files we could use were the Paper Beads file with the Jewelry Holder file.  Also, when you visit, leave a comment.  You will be entered in a drawing next week to win three free files of your choice!  Before you go, thank you for stopping by and here is my video…

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we were all given just one file to work with.  The great news is that this one file is very versatile and has many versions to choose from.  The Valentine Window Card Tops Template has many variations of heart shape cutouts and words.  I used one of the may heart versions for a quick and easy birthday card for my aunt.  Here are some other views…

Sending You Kisses Birthday Card

This week at The Cutting Cafe we focused on Hershey’s Kisses!  I used the Hershey Kiss Shaped Card to make a birthday card for my husband’s aunt.  She loves chocolate so he sent her a box of chocolates and this card.

I used K & Co patterned paper on the cover and Nikki Silvas paper on the inside.  I cut the topper of the card file out of American Craft silver metallic paper and used sentiments from other cutting cafe files.  I like the way it turned out.

The other files featuring Hershey Kisses that we had to choose from include the Hershey Kiss Window Card Template, Hershey Kiss Treat Box, Hershey Kiss Window Box, and the Hershey Kiss Window Box 2.

There will be many great projects posted Wednesday on The Cutting Cafe Blog using these great files.  Head over and take a look.  Make sure you leave a comment and you might just win three free files in the weekly drawing!  Thank you for stopping by!  Here is my video…

Valentine’s Day is in the air…at least at The Cutting Cafe!  This week starts our valentine projects.  I chose to do an altered canvas with a photo of my god brother and my dog that he loves so much!  I used the Valentine’s Day Bingo Printable Stamps Set.  I used a background paper that has the bingo numbers on it, randomly added some texture paste, and some embellishments.  I love the way it turned out.

Here are a few more views…

Valentine Birthday Flip Card

It is Inspiration Wednesday and time for a new project for The Cutting Cafe!  This week we could choose from any valentine file in the cafe to use.  I chose to use two files to create this card: The Square Flip Card Template and the This Cake is all Heart Printable Stamp Set. My aunt’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day so this card is for her.  The cake image is made of heart shapes and the inside sentiment, which comes with the printable stamp set, mentions both birthday and Valentine’s Day!  That was just perfect!  Be sure to stop over at the cafe later today to see all the latest design team projects!  Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Target Dollar Bin Mailboxes for Valentine’s Day

10 Feb

These are two mailboxes from Target I just quickly decorated for my 5-year-old god brother and his 6-year-old cousin.  Nothing elaborate, just a quick cover in paper and stickers.  But they will amuse my little ones.  I will fill them with candy and a few trinkets.  Thanks for stopping by.

Exploding Box for Sweet Nothings Stamp Company Design Team Call

27 Jan

Here is my first exploding box!  Take the top off and the sides fall to reveal the inside design and message.  I decided to do this for the design team call for Sweet Nothings Stamp Company, which is a digital stamp company.  The image I used is Love Letter Sophie and I colored her with both Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.  I have her popped up on a part of a doily.

For the box I used the new valentine line of paper from My Mind’s Eye called Lucky in Love and I used roses  and metallic stickers from Michael’s.  I added white trim and flat back pearl trim from my stash, and hot pink glitter ribbon from Michael’s.  I thought the color combination was great and I really love the way it turned out.  Thanks so much for visiting.  Please feel free to follow on the right side of the screen!
