Elisha Jean and Friends Embellishments – The Cutting Cafe Shop Design Team Project

26 May
Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends Embellishments 2

Embellishments using just the faces

I am back with a new design team project for The Cutting Cafe Shop!  I made some cute embellishments using the Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends stamp set.  I used the whole doll stamps on some and just the faces on others.

I used scraps from recent projects along with some stickers and foam squares. I have seen many videos making embellishments and decided to try some.  I had fun making them and will make more in the future as it is a good way to use up scraps and use your punches.

And lastly, I made paper clips which are all the rage these days with the planner craze and the popularity of flip books.

Hey everyone!  I am excited about this project for The Cutting Cafe!  The design team was given this cute 3 Tier Cake Box file to use.  It is so much fun to do.  I used to decorate cakes so this was just up my alley!

The layers actually open so you can put a little something something in them as a gift.  Check out my video below to see how the layers open. Here are more views of it…

Printer Tray Photo Display

I am back with another project for The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  You can find the cute stamp set, Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends, that I am featuring there along with other stamp sets, paper, and embellishments.

I had some wallet photos from my goddaughter’s one-year-old photo shoot and wanted to display them in some way other than in an album.  I found a wood printer tray, painted it, added patterned paper, pictures, and embellishments.  The Elisha Jean stamps reminded me of her and how she wears her hair so I thought they would work in sweetly!

Super Twisted Note Card Swap

28 Mar
Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Cards and Envelope Box

My friend Tmika host great swaps all the time on YouTube. The latest one has us using techniques and embellishments.  The 3 x 3 cards had to have a combination of four or more things going on.  I used five techniques…dry embossing, distressing, texture paste stippling, glittering the texture paste, and splattering/ misting, and four embellishments…flowers, punches, twine, and a dazzle sticker.

Here is a close up of the card…

The focus of the projects for this post is the With Gratitude Printable Stamp Set.  This file has over 70 images including many sentiments in square, round, and rectangle shapes, background images, and borders.  Some come in color as well as black and white and some come in a couple different sizes.

I also used the Large Top Box template .

I used one of the treasure word definition sentiments on the front of the box.

I wanted the box to look great from both sides so I added another sentiment on the back…

I printed the circle printable background from the file and usedit to cut out the liner pieces of the box.

A great thing about the Large Top Box is that it adjusts to whatever you need to go in it as it slides to fit.  Here is it with nothing in it…

When you add your goodies the top will just sit on top of your tallest item.  Here is what I put in mine…
