Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

The Cutting Cafe Shop is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  The shop sells paper, ribbon, and stamp sets like the Birthday Party Background one that I have used here.  I stamped it with Staz On ink onto clear cardstock, which is also sold at the shop.  I used white paper to better show the stamp but here is what it looks like without it…

This shows the window in the box without the white card that I used to help show the words better.

The actual box is made with the Chinese Take Out Box cutting template.  This can hold candy or a little gift.  And it is quick and easy to do!  I just added flowers on the sides but you can attach a handle using brads as the file even cuts the holes for you to use.

I added a flower to the side but you can attach a handle to each side if you choose.

Birthday Party Fun Card – The Cutting Cafe Shop Design Team Project

Birthday Party Fun Card

Hey Everyone! I am here to share a couple new stamp sets that are available from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  These are great for all those birthday cards that you need to make and also for layouts or other projects.

I pulled out my embossing powder, which I haven’t used in eons and stamped the background using the Birthday Party Background stamp.  I used one of the frame cut files that comes with the stamps and put the stamped piece on foam tape for a little dimension.  The paper had copper foil, so I used copper embossing powder.  The heart balloon and party hat are made from the Birthday Party Fun stamp set and outline cut files that come with it.  I embossed those also.

I like the way these came out.  Make sure you also check out the shop as Regina is now doing custom stamps!  Yes, that is correct.  If you want to get a special stamp made, just provide the artwork and submit it with payment.

Check out my video below to see more about the project, the stamp sets I used and the custom stamp set made for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shirt and Tie Father’s Day Card

For my design team project for The Cutting Cafe this week, I used two files, The Shirt and Tie Cutting File and the Different Ways to Say Dad Background Printable Stamp.  I added buttons and metal paper clips that say love you.  The pocket and hankie are part of the file.

I think it came out adorable. Be sure to stop by the blog and see all the design team projects.  This week we could use whatever files we wanted to so there will be quite a variety.  Here are pics of the inside and back.  I used an Anna Griffin die for the Dad on the inside.

Elisha Jean and Friends Embellishments – The Cutting Cafe Shop Design Team Project

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.

Printer Tray Photo Display

I am back with another project for The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  You can find the cute stamp set, Everyday Elisha Jean and Friends, that I am featuring there along with other stamp sets, paper, and embellishments.

I had some wallet photos from my goddaughter’s one-year-old photo shoot and wanted to display them in some way other than in an album.  I found a wood printer tray, painted it, added patterned paper, pictures, and embellishments.  The Elisha Jean stamps reminded me of her and how she wears her hair so I thought they would work in sweetly!

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!

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…

Altered Notebook Featuring the Elisha Jean & Friends Stamp Set

Altered Notebook featuring Elisha Jean Stamp

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…
