There will be variety this week at The Cutting Cafe for the design team post as we could choose any file we wanted to work with! Since shaker cards are still very hot right now, I chose to do a candle shaped shaker card from the 6 Assorted Shaker Cards set. It came out great.

The design team at The Cutting Cafe is shaking things up this week with fall and Halloween shaker cards!  There are so many to choose from.  Just take a look here and here!

I chose the Pumpkin Shaker Card Template version to use.  I put the shape on a card, but you can also make the whole card pumpkin shaped.

I love the fall colors of this and the shaker has flower and leaf shaped sequins and gold microbeads.  I decorated the inside too.

Huge Cupcake Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Huge Cupcake Birthday Card

 

It is all about cupcakes for our design team post projects for The Cutting Cafe!  Who does not like cupcakes?  I know I love them and I made this sweet card to send my cousin for her birthday.  I played with patterns in the same color family for this one and I like the way it turned out.  The pink and taupe is a different color combination for me but it works.

Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see all of the team’s projects.  We post on the 7th and 21st of every month!  This post we could choose any of the many files from the store that involved cupcakes.  I used the Huge Cupcake Cutting File for the cupcake, and the All About Cupcakes Printable Stamp Set for the sentiments.

Check out the other team member’s projects and be sure to leave a comment.  Each new design team post, the owner, Regina, randomly pulls a name from the comment left on the previous post.  That person wins three free files of their choice!  You can lose because even if your name is not pulled for the drawing, we all love to read your comments!  Plus we have some new design team members, including our first very young ladies who will surely be an inspiration to other children crafters.

Present Shaped Shaker Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Christmas Present Shaker Card

Christmas Present Shaker Card

It is time for another design team post for The Cutting Cafe.  This time we are all about Christmas and shaker cards.  We could choose from either the Christmas Word Shakers or the Christmas Shape Shaker Cards which I used.  This file comes with eight different shapes including a bell, a snowman, a mitten, and the present that I used.

Christmas Present Shaker Card Front View

I used glitter paper and added foam tape to create the shaker area.  There is a tutorial on the website on how to make the shakers as well as written directions in the file.  They are really easy to make.  I used hexagon shaped glitter from Martha Stewart for my shaker element.

Even though this is a Christmas file, it can still be used for other things.  For example, I used the same file to create a birthday card…

I changed the size of the card and made the bow smaller so the background paper would show.

I used star shaped glitter from Martha Stewart for this one as well as one of the Birthday Hershey Kiss Bottom Printable Stamps for the sentiment in the center of the bow…

Card and Grandfather Clock for My Mom’s 70th Birthday

This week my wonderful mother turned 70 years young!  Happy Birthday Mom!  Here is the card I made for her…

And here is the video on it…

We had a wonderful party and I took on a project.  My mother has always loved grandfather clocks.  She has a full-sized one that we have had forever.  I decided to make one for her special birthday.  It was an undertaking, but I got it done…

70th Birthday Clock

I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!  She loved it.  Everyone at the party loved it.  I love it.  I used a Paper Phenomen/Kathy Orta tutorial.  For the most part it was great but there were a few things left off the cutting guide which meant I had to go back and cut more chipboard.  I had to make a couple other adjustments and added some added support in places, but it worked out.  I will warn you, picture overload is coming.  It was a bit difficult to photograph and film, so I hope you can get the just of it.  In person, it is absolutely gorgeous.  To find out the materials I used, please watch the video I will have at the end of the post.  Now for the photos…

It is the 21st of the month and time for another Design Team post for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we focused on fall and Halloween.  I really do not celebrate Halloween so I went with the fall theme.  There were a few files we could choose from…

Acorn Shaped Card (which I used)
Halloween and Fall Shaker Cards
Halloween and Fall in a Jar Printable Stamp Set

I cut the card from brown cardstock and used Recollections and My Minds Eye papers.  I added a happy birthday rub on and candy dots for accents.  I also added acrylic leaf embellishments.

Hourglass Shaker Birthday Card

Hourglass Birthday Shaker Card

We are shaking up some fun at The Cutting Cafe this week with a whole new line of shaker cards!  There are 13 different versions and you can find them all here!  I used the hourglass version to make a 50th birthday card for a friend.  Of course I used black and gold for the honor!  I kept the card very simple in hopes of making the shaker 50 and the hourglass the focal points.

Here are a few more pictures…

This week we used the new Pizza Box Template file for our projects for The Cutting Cafe and it is so cute!  It can be cut out plain or with a window and it comes with multiple inserts to divide the box.  The file makes a great small gift box or you can do something different like I did…

I added a happy birthday pop up to the inside and there you have it…a birthday card.  I have been into doing non-traditional cards lately so this one fits right in!
