Whimsical Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

21 Jul

Fun with Silhouettes Angle View

This week for our The Cutting Cafe Design Team project, we were to use the Fun with Silhouettes Printable Stamps and Cutting File which is full of fun shapes that you can print or cut!

I chose to use the rainbow and clouds shape to make this whimsical card.  I just love the way it turned out.  I used a Spellbinders die to create the card.  I am also using this for a collaboration project where I have to use any two of beads, metal, or fiber.  I used sparkly tulle for my fiber, and a metal piece with birthday on it.

Paper What?! Bead Earrings – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Paper Bead Earrings and Earring Card

Paper Bead Earrings and Jewelry Card Holder

Yep, these earrings are made of paper!  For The Cutting Cafe design team, we got to work with the Paper Bead Set file and I must say these were fun and easy.  The file comes with 9 different bead shaped and sizes and a small box .  I decided to make earrings and will probably make a necklace or bracelet with the other beads (because they were too fun to make to just stop at two).

I have displayed them on a jewelry card made from the Jewelry Holder Set.  It has several different styles of earring holders, and a couple boxes.

Christmas Gable Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

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…

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…

Fall Themed Milk Cartons – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Oct

Hello there!  It has been a month since I posted anything!  I am sorry for the wait!  But today I have two cute milk cartons I made for The Cutting Cafe‘s Design Team!  These will house goodies for my god children. I used the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton cutting file.  The file comes with several cut outs.  I used the leaf and the pumpkin and added acetate to the window cutout.

My god son is nine and absolutely hates glitter so I still had to bling his up, just with acrylic pieces…

My god daughter is 3 1/2 and loves glitter!  So for hers, I used glitter paper and some glittered embellishments…

Apple Treat Cup Card Picture Frame

I created this apple picture frame using the Apple Treat Cup Card file from The Cutting Cafe. The focus for this post is back to school and we could use one of four files. The other three are the Apple Shaped Card, Pencil Treat Cup Card, and the Pencil Shaped Card.

I used the top and the back of the treat cup and backed it with white chip board.  I added an easel on the back.

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame

Super-sized Polaroid Frame

Hello all!  I am a couple of days late posting my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, but it is too cute not to share!  This week we could choose any file we wanted to but we had to super-size it, that is, make it larger.

I took the frame from the Polaroid and Camera Fun Set and made it 10″ x 11 3/4″ so it could hold a 8″ x 10″ picture.  I also used my new custom stamp, Fantabulous, from The Cutting Cafe Shop.  I added some die cuts, a rosette, and some stickers and I love it.

I added easels to the back.

Thanks so much for watching and here is a video of my project…
