New YouTube Series – Man Card Mondays Episode #1

6 Feb

I have started a new series on my Sewgoodall YouTube channel in response to a question I asked on a recent subscriber giveaway.  What would you like to see me create?  The overwhelming answer was masculine cards.  So, I started a series to give tips and inspiration to others who may struggle to make them.

Man Card Mondays #1

Masculine Valentines’s Day Card

The first episode debuted today and featured a Valentine’s Day card.  I used a few techniques such as embossing on cardstock and acetate, off setting the heart, and adding metal pieces, all things that work for masculine cards.

You can see the embossing better here.

Clean and Simple Card

Clean and Simple Card

Happy New Year!  Welcome to my first post of 2017.  This post marks my fourth anniversary as a design team member for The Cutting Cafe!  Check out my very first post for the team here.  I still have that project proudly displayed in my craft room!  I have loved bringing you projects for the shop and hope to continue to bring you inspiration for a while to come!

With that being said, for our first project of 2017, we were tasked with doing a clean and simple card using the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 1 or the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 2.  I used the first set and used two sentiments from the 1a set.

I used additional Spellbinders shapes on the inside and matted a second sentiment from the file.

For our The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project we were tasked to use an item that we would throw away, like a jar or bottle, and make a Christmas project out of it.  Well I used a jar and came up with this pretty!

I used three files from the cafe, the Christmas Bell Shaped Shaker Card for the bells on the front and the Christmas Colored Basic Shapes for the sentiment…

Fall Themed Milk Cartons – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Oct

Hello there!  It has been a month since I posted anything!  I am sorry for the wait!  But today I have two cute milk cartons I made for The Cutting Cafe‘s Design Team!  These will house goodies for my god children. I used the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton cutting file.  The file comes with several cut outs.  I used the leaf and the pumpkin and added acetate to the window cutout.

My god son is nine and absolutely hates glitter so I still had to bling his up, just with acrylic pieces…

My god daughter is 3 1/2 and loves glitter!  So for hers, I used glitter paper and some glittered embellishments…

Blessings Book - The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Blessings Book 

For this posting for The Cutting Cafe, the design team used the Autumn Sentiments Frame Card Printable Stamp Set. I used the Autumn Blessings version to make a blessings book.

What is a blessings book? When you are facing challenges or feeling sad, it is a place to write down the blessings you have received  in your life so you can remind yourself that if God blessed you once, He can bless you again!

Make sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog to see all the design team projects made with this set. Leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three free files! Continue reading

I created this apple picture frame using the Apple Treat Cup Card file from The Cutting Cafe. The focus for this post is back to school and we could use one of four files. The other three are the Apple Shaped Card, Pencil Treat Cup Card, and the Pencil Shaped Card.

I used the top and the back of the treat cup and backed it with white chip board.  I added an easel on the back.

I am loving this cute gift card holder I made!  I used two stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  On the front, I stamped the cardstock with the Birthday Party Background stamp and the make a wish sentiment is from the Birthday Party Fun stamp set.  The base is cut from gold metallic paper.  Here is the back…

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame

Super-sized Polaroid Frame

Hello all!  I am a couple of days late posting my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, but it is too cute not to share!  This week we could choose any file we wanted to but we had to super-size it, that is, make it larger.

I took the frame from the Polaroid and Camera Fun Set and made it 10″ x 11 3/4″ so it could hold a 8″ x 10″ picture.  I also used my new custom stamp, Fantabulous, from The Cutting Cafe Shop.  I added some die cuts, a rosette, and some stickers and I love it.

Super-Sized Polaroid Frame Back

I added easels to the back.

Make sure you check out The Cutting Cafe Blog as there are some terrific super-sized projects to see!  Leave a comment and you just might win three files of your choice in a drawing for those who left comments.

Birthday Fun Cake Card

Birthday Fun Cake Card

Birthday Fun Cake Card

I made this cute birthday card for one of my husband’s staff members.  I used the BIrthday Fun Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  You can find clear stamps, ribbons, paper, clear cardstock, and other embellishments.  Also, you can have custom stamps made!

I used the cake and candle from the stamp set and the outline shape SVG file that comes with the set (it comes in PDF and other versions too). I added clear Wink of Stella to give the cake a frosty look and yellow Stickles for the flame.  I used a Spellbinders die set in peach and cream and gold metallic paper on top of a cream base. I added little gold Dazzle gem stickers in each of the circles of the die cut.

Both the sentiments on the front and on the inside are from the stamp set.
