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.

I am back with another project using the Everyday Elisha Jean Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop!  This time I used the Ruby J. friend a the focus.  I used bright colored paper and the Assorted Card Folds Set 2 – Fold with Circle Window from The Cutting Cafe.

I added clear cardstock (which is also available in The Cutting Cafe Shop) to the window. I made a larger oval and attached my fussy cut Ruby J. to it. In between I added flower sequins and pink seed beads and put together with foam tape.  I love how it came out!

Here is the insid…

Altered Notebook featuring Elisha Jean Stamp from The Cutting Cafe Shop

Today I am featuring the new clear stamp set, Everyday Elisha Jean & Friends, from The Cutting Cafe Shop which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  Regina, the owner, has translated some of the printable stamps from the original store into clear stamps.  And when I tell you they stamp so smoothly it’s like butta, I really mean it.

I used a firework paper to cover the notebook, added bling, the word dream, and Elisha Jean, the cute doll stamp.  The sentiment also came from the set.  I paper pieced her dress, bows, and socks.

On the inside covers, I added pink glitter paper and stamped the dolls on every few pages…

Well, thanks for stopping by!  Before you leave, I just want to remind you that The Cutting Cafe’s Design Team post will be on May 7th.  Come visit the blog to see the new projects!  And here’s my video…

For our design team projects this week for The Cutting Cafe, we got to work with clear cardstock, which is something that is carried in the new sister store The Cutting Cafe Shop.

I used the Mini Heart Lunch Bag and love the way it turned out!  I also made the Bow Tie with a Slit out of the clear cardstock to decorate the front.  Here are more pictures…

It’s Time for Green – Gift Card Holders – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Gift Card Holders

This time for our design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file we wanted to.  However, we had to use the color green.  Since spring is coming and so is St. Patrick’s Day, green is very appropriate!  I had gift cards to give to staff for Employee Appreciation Day and wanted a cute and easy way to give them.  So I used the Gift Card and Money Holder Set.

These are very easy to make and can be decorated as much as you would like.  I have kept them fairly simple but imagine them adorned with flowers and bling!  Anyway, as always, here is a video of my project…

Birthday Bendi Card – Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

21 Jan
Birthday Bendi Card

Bendi Card

Bendi cards feature bands that bend or arc out from the base of a card.  The ways that people decorate them are endless.  You will see quite a variety of designs this week from the Design Team members of The Cutting Cafe as we used the Bendi – Bendy Card Template and Cutting File for our projects.

I stayed relatively simple for my birthday card.  I just added flowers, a gold glittered branch piece, and an Anna Griffin layered sticker.  I also added some acrylic bling dots and a crown which goes well with the queen for a day sentiment on the sticker.

Looking down on the card, you can see what the curved bands/flaps look like.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card with the bands opened up.  They essentially are flaps that tuck into slots on each side of the card, causing the bending of the flaps.

A look from the top shows the curved bands.

Here is another view…

There are overlays in the file, which the tree is cut from a different color.  I chose only to put one on the front.

Here is the back.

One could be added to the back if you wanted to which would cover up the part that folds down in the back.

I also used the Christmas Hershey Kiss Bottoms Printable Stamp set on the kisses I filled the bag with.

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…
