Post It Notes Box Set – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Aug

Post It Note BoxIt is time for another project for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we had two files we could choose from, The Mini Note Pad and Card Set Printable Stamp Set or The Post It Note Box and Cover Set which I used.  The file comes with covers for the Post It Notes, a couple versions of a belly band that you can add, plus labels.  I love how it turned out.  It will make a cute little gift for someone.

Make sure you visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month as our design team projects are posted those dates.  Leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice!  Plus we love reading your comments!

I had paper in my stash that was double-sided and the color combo was a bit different so I thought I might as well pull something old out to use it.  The red with white circles used on the label on the front is the other side of the pink paisley paper.  So the inside is finished instead of just being white.

Here are a few different views…

My First Folio and Matching Box

2 Feb

I finally got around to making my first folio and a matching box.  I used a Paper Phenomenon/Kathy Orta tutorial called Gift Card Box Folio.  It was fairly easy to make.  Measuring and cutting the mats took the most time. I used cream cardstock for the base and a few photo mats.  There is no chipboard in this at all. It is all paper.

And speaking of paper, I used the Painted Posies paper stack by Craftwell and did more mixing of patterns than I normally do, but I like the way it turned out.

Warning…I have photo overload and have added captions to all the photos so you can tell what I am showing.  At the end is my YouTube video.  Thanks so much 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!
