Bows and a Box

21 Apr

Hey everyone!  It is time for a The Cutting Cafe Project!  This time we could use whatever files we wanted to and I used four different ones.  The items I made are going into a gift bag that I made.  I used the Gift Box with Divider, the Loopy Loopy Bow, the Bow Tie with a Slit, and the Bow with Ribbon Set.

First up is the box.  The file comes with two box sizes and two tops.  I used the one with the window…

This time for my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we had to pick a shaped card and make it into a notepad. I chose the T-Shirt Shaped Card.  I used my favorites, black and gold to make this fabulous note pad.

I added flat back pearls randomly on the front and added a fringe trim as well as some black and gold rhinestone trim.

I chose to use black paper on the inside which will require the use of a metallic marker.

Custom Word Card

You’ve Got This Custom Word Card

The Cutting Cafe now offers custom word shaped card files!  So if you have always wanted a name or phrase you could never find, now you can have a file made for you in a PDF or cutting file!  Find the details here.

For out design team projects, we got to have a custom file made for us to use.  I chose the phrase, You’ve Got This.  I also requested a couple sentiments, Don’t Give Up, GIrlfriend, and With God…. You can have a few sentiments too.  This time I am using the card as a goodbye and good luck type of card so I did not use any of my sentiments.  I just added a few velum/bling flowers and added clear glitter marker to every one of those polkadots!

Hey Chick card using holographic foiling

For this week at The Cutting Cafe, we used the new Animal Friends printable stamp set.  It has a lot of cute images and sentiments.  I chose to use the chick  image.  You can pick up this cute set later today when the design team posting goes live for only 99 cents, only through the design team post!!!  Click here to see the post when it goes live this afternoon.  Leave a comment and you will also be eligible to win three files on the next design team post on March 7th.

I printed it out on my laser printer which allowed me to then use my mini Minc machine to foil it with some holographic foil I have in my stash.  I have a holographic paper pad, some holographic bling shapes, like the teardrops used here, and two sizes of holographic flowers.  Holographic, holographic, holographic lol!

14th Word Shaped Cards

14th Word Shaped Cards

For this posting of the Design Team Projects for The Cutting Cafe, we focused on word shaped cards that pertain to Valentine’s Day.  I chose to use the 14th Shaped Word Card, which can be versatile to be used not only for Valentine’s Day but for anniversaries, years, or a special date.  I made two different ones.  The first one features sentiments from the This Cake is All Heart, a printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe.

Valentine Nugget Candy Box Holder – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

For our design team posting this time for The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file we wanted to use.  I needed some little trinket holders for gifts so I used the Nugget Candy Box file.  The original purpose is to hold four Hershey nuggets.  But, I chose to use it for something else, thus showing the versatility of the files.

The file comes with three top options. The first is a with a heart cut out.  You can leave it open or use acetate to make a window.  I chose to line the inside with black cardstock and add a foam heart sticker.

The second is a rectangle cut out.  Again, I lined the inside of the top with black cardstock.

The third is a plain top, which I decorated with the heart cutouts from the heart top.

Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Journal – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Journal

It is the new year and everyone is trying to get organized.  The Cutting Cafe can definitely help you with that!  There are many planners and add ons that can help you plan and organize.  See all the planner offerings here.

In the crafting world, many like to send surprise gifts/trinkets/crafty items to other crafters.  This is known as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness).  In 2018 I want to make and send more RAKs and I used the RAK Journal printable file to help me do it.  This file includes a list of RAKS, RAK notes, and RAK ideas.  I made my own folder to hold the printable sheets.
