Sewing Machine Cards

Sewing Machine Shaped Cards

Hello all!  This week for The Cutting Cafe design team, I used the Sewing Machine Set which contains a card and a box version.  I made two thank you cards, appropriate for any time but especially now.

I really like the way they turned out.  Here are individual pictures…

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…

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…

Encouraging Hope Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Hope Card

Today for The Cutting Cafe, the design team worked on things for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I know a couple people, including a former co-worker, Molly, and my cousin Kim who have both just beat breast cancer and I am very happy for both of them!  It takes a lot of prayer and support for a person to make it through and these two are living proof that survival does happen and that God has the last word!

For my project, I used the Hope Shaped Word Card and the Breast Cancer Hershey Kiss Box Set.

Altered Target Dollar Bin Mailboxes for Valentine’s Day

10 Feb

These are two mailboxes from Target I just quickly decorated for my 5-year-old god brother and his 6-year-old cousin.  Nothing elaborate, just a quick cover in paper and stickers.  But they will amuse my little ones.  I will fill them with candy and a few trinkets.  Thanks for stopping by.
