My Craft Space – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

21 Apr

We are doing something a bit different for our Design Team post for The Cutting Cafe.  We are sharing a look at our crafting spaces today.  Although my room is a total hot mess right now, I found a picture of it cleaned up.  Here is what I see when I walk in.

Craft Room

A little over a year and a half ago, I cleaned up and rearranged my room.  It is still set up that way and I did a craft room reveal on YouTube.  Since my room is too much of a mess to show right now, I will share that video, which also features two of my DT members and very good friends who were visiting for a crafty weekend.

But before I share the video, just a couple of things.  Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see the craft rooms of some of our DT members (and I am sure you will see Regina’s fabulous room – she is the owner of The Cutting Cafe and her room was featured in HGTV magazines and a couple of others).  We do post on the 7th and 21st of each month.  When you visit, leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice.

Thanks for stopping by!  Now, here’s that video…

Man Card Mondays Episode #9 and The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project – Bat and Ball Cards

Man Card Mondays #9 and The CC DT Project Bat and Ball Cards

Bat and Ball Cards

This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project.  Baseball season just started so I decided to use that theme as this was a free week and we could choose any file we wanted to.

I chose to use the Bat and Ball Shaped Card Set  and made two different cards.

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

21 Feb
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.
