Grad Word Album – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Grad Word Album

Grad Word Album

Hello!  It is design team time for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we were given the opportunity to work with word or shape books.  There are many to choose from in the store but since graduation is coming and I have a cousin that is graduating, I chose the Grad Word Book.

It comes with the pages and the single letters to use on top as an additional layer.  I used his school colors and kept it simple enough so that he can put a few pictures from the day in it.  Here are a pictures of the inside…

I have never made a word book and had fun making this one.  For specific details, see my YouTube video below.  Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog today or sometime this week to look at all the design team word and shape books for plenty of inspiration.  When you stop by, leave a comment because we love reading them and because you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice on the next posting which will be May 21!

Thanks for stopping by and here is my video…

I did a one-on-one mini album swap with Sandi who is Decor8yourlife on YouTube.  She likes both vintage and shabby styles so I sort of combined the two.  Here is a series of pictures…

I entered a challenge on YouTube held by Christy, who is twins4me2.  She had you watch a Wallet Mini Album Tutorial by Mariescrapbooking.  It is an easy mini to make and is great for gifts. I think I will make several more for Christmas gifts.

Finish It Friday Week 3 – Masculine Mini Album

I managed to get one project done in my quest to finish seven started but yet unfinished mini albums.  This week was hard as I was in Lincoln, NE from Sunday through Thursday afternoon for work.  So there was no crafting time.

But tonight I managed to get to my craft room and get the cover and spine on this one.  The rest was done.

I used a tutorial on YouTube from Papercrafter 45. It is made with the envelope punch board and it has a scored spine, which I had never done.

This week I was able to complete one project, again at the last minute.  Actually the video is still uploading as I type at 11:55 p.m. CDT!!!  But it is finished!  I am so thrilled that many others have joined in on the fun.  I finished one of the mini albums and will probably gift it to my mom.  Thanks for stopping by!

Finish It Friday Series

Last Friday I kicked off a series on YouTube called Finish It Friday.  I challenged myself to get some old craft projects done.  Above is what I finished for week one.  It was almost fail it Friday as I didn’t get to crafting until 7:30 tonight.  But I made it still on Friday!

I also issued a challenge to other crafters.  It is not to late to play!  If you have some unfinished projects, do a video showing them.  Then, each Friday through October 2, show a video of one or more of them finished.  Let me know you did a video and I will watch and comment.  For each Friday you play, you will get one entry.  At the end of the series, I will pull a name to win a great prize package from me!

Here is my kickoff video and today’s week one completed projects…

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspirational Mini Album and Tag Swap

Inspirational Tag, Mini Album, and Goodie Box

Inspirational Tag, Mini Album, and Goodie Box

I was approached by a fellow YouTuber, Tina, who is TellHimThankU on YouTube to see if I would like to do a one-on-one swap.  I agreed.  I suggested an inspirational mini album and she suggested a tag instead of a card.  We also were to swap goodies of around $10.

Below are pictures of the mini album and of the tag.  The tag was one of my Cutting Cafe projects a few weeks ago so check out my older posts for more detail.  After the pictures, I will also have both the album and the tag videos which will give you more detail.  Thanks for stopping by!
