Snowflake Kisses Treat Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

8 Dec
Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Hello!  It has been a while since I posted, or even crafted.  We recently moved and I did not have time for anything but packing.  I have not begun to unpack my craft room yet, but I dug some things out to do this project.

For this posting of the Design Team of The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file to work with as long as our project was about Christmas.  I used the Snowflakes Kisses set which has two boxes, the treat box, which I used and a square box.

The paper I used has holographic foiled snowflakes on it.  I had some holographic bling so I added those to the centers of the big snowflakes on each side.

The bling center is holographic to go with the holographic foiling on the paper.

My First Craft Fair

20 Nov

This past Saturday I did my first craft fair.  It went fairly well.  I wish there had been more traffic, and my tablecloth is wrinkled, but for the first time, I am ok with it.


Here are photos of some of the items I made and sold…

I have another one in December and am looking forward to that one.  Here is a video showing items made and some footage from the show…

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 Gable Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Nov
Christmas Gable Box

Christmas Gable Box

Hey all!  Christmas is just about a month and a half away!  Where did 2016 go?  It was just summer!!!  Well it is time to get started making those little gifts for family, friends, co-workers, etc.!  The Cutting Cafe has the perfect new file to help you out with treat giving.

The Gable Box file come with a lot of variety so that you can customize your box for the occasion.  There are windows that come in different shapes, some have words in the window.  You can choose straight edge or scalloped edge. There are toppers you can add.

I made the plain box in white and used a black/gold/white paper for the topper pieces, then added a sentiment from the paper stack, and finally added a HUGE gold poinsettia clip that is just over the top!  The recipient can take the clip off and use it for decor or add to a package of their own.

Here is a view of it without the poinsettia…

Christmas Gable Box No Poinsettia

Here is the box without the Poinsettia.

I see a lot of these in my future as the larger size can hold little gifts and the mini ones can be used for little candy gifts or favors.  Here is one more view with the huge flower…

2012 Christmas Trees

27 Dec

My husband and I love Christmas and decorating for it.  We usually put up anywhere from 2-6 full-sized trees and a few miniature trees.  I also usually do a 3 ft. tree in my office at work.  This year we only had time to get up four trees so I thought I would share.  Next year we are going to decorate a small 3 ft. tree with ornaments made from my Christmas paper stacks!  I have to put all my stash to use after all!

Christmas Cards 2012 and Merry Christmas to You!

24 Dec

WOW!  The past few days have been crazy busy.  I waited until the last minute to do cards and I did 50 of them in two days!  That is the fastest I have ever made cards.  Dimensional stickers and glitter tape were my friends this season.  I was able to make some very quick cards with these two items.  I wanted to share a few of the cards I made and the two videos I posted on YouTube.  Thanks for visiting and you have a Merry Christmas!
