Calendar Box with Tag Calendars – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Calendar Box

Calendar Box with Tag Calendar

It is that time to start getting calendars for next year. The Cutting Cafe has a 2020 Calendar Set that is full of calendar options…square, round, journal spots, full sheet, and even tags to hold the round ones as I have used.  Plus there is a new Calendar Holder with Front Box file which I also used.

The box also has a pull out drawer that you can use to hold paper clips, push pins, loose change, mints, whatever you want to store.

There is a little drawer that pulls out.

I made a calendar tag for each month and will just change them out.  I used a pearl brad but it can be fun to change the brad for different occasions.  Also I stored the tags in the holder on the front of it, but that could also be used for a post it note pad if you’d like.

I would also like to say that this will be my last design team post for The Cutting Cafe as the design team is being disbanded for now to allow Regina to focus on some other things.  There will still be new files coming out as usual.  There just won’t be design team posts for now.  I appreciate the six years that I have been on the team and will still be doing projects featuring the fabulous files from The Cutting Cafe.  Please continue to visit often to see what is new!

Most of what I post on this site have been design team projects.  I do many other things and will start posting more of my other projects and swaps here. So keep visiting me too!

With Much Appreciation Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

With Much Appreciation Card

With Much Appreciation Sentiment Card

For this The Cutting Cafe design team project we could use any fall or Halloween project.  I chose to highlight that The Cutting Cafe not only has cutting files but also sentiment files or printable stamps.  I used the So Thankful Circle Word file to make this cute thank you/anniversary file.

The circle word that I used says with much appreciation in a circle.  I cut it out an layered it, then put it on foam tape.  I added thank you to the bottom.  On the inside I will either write a message or use a happy anniversary stamp.

Fashion Teapot Folder

7 Sep

                    Fashion Teapot Folder

This week at The Cutting Cafe we got to use any file we chose.  I used the Teapot Shaped Card file.  There are two different teapot designs in the file.  I chose to do something different and made a folder with a pocket instead of a card.  I used the card top and layers and added a hinge on the side.

Then I made a pocket for the inside that you can add a little gift, like tea bags, or a craft item like bling.

DIY Checkbook – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

23 Aug

Fabric Check Book Cover View 2

Hello!  We are a couple days late with our design team post because Regina, the owner, got whisked away for her birthday!  Happy birthday again Regina!

For our design team project for The Cutting Cafe this time, we were to make the Checkbook Cover & Registry file using fabric.  I used a leftover piece of printed fabric I have had for years.

I hand cut the PDF of the file out of cardstock and fabric, but if you have an electronic cutter that cuts fabric, you can also use the version of the file to cut it that way.  I then just glued the fabric piece onto the cardstock and it was finished.  I just added a silhouette of a lady and the word blessed and a few rhinestones,

It turned out great!  The file also contains the checkbook registry so now you can make your own!  Be sure to check out the design team post on The Cutting Cafe Blog to see what other team members created.  Leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three free files.

Happy Easter Shaker Card – Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

7 Apr
Happy Easter Shaker Card

Happy Easter Shaker Card

Hello Again!  I make a cute shaker card for my design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  I used the Happy Easter Overlay Template and added acetate, foam and sequins/seed beads/tiny shapes to create the shaker.

The file comes with the card base and a background piece so making a shaker was very easy.  You can also just use the overlay on top of the backing sheet, making it with maybe glitter paper or patterned paper.  Either way would be cute also.

Make sure you stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog.  We post design team projects on the 7th and 21st of each month.  Leave a comment and you just might win three free files of your choice in a random drawing to be held on the following design team posting.

Hello everyone!  This week for the Cutting Cafe Design Team projects, we worked with the Popcorn Box file and it is filled with multiple options like two sizes and styles of box, scalloped edging, printed toppers, and many different sentiments.

I used confetti printed paper and a cut apart from the Confetti stack from DCWV. I added the scalloped top option and bling at top and around the middle.
