14th Shaped Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

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.

This week for our design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we were to use the Tissue Box Cover Template.  I needed something elegant in white and gold to use in my office for Christmas as my decorations are white and gold.  This fits the bill perfectly.  I also used the Bow with Slit Template File to make the glitter bow.

Here is a view of the back…

Jumbo 65th Birthday Card and Gift Card Holder – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Projects

Jumbo 65th Birthday Card and Gift Card Holder

I am back with another design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  For this posting, we were able to use any file we wanted to.  I chose two to work with, the Birthday Word Gift Card Holder and the Birthday Number Candle Set.

First, one of my staff is turning 65.  I needed a card large enough for everyone in my department to sign, so I made a scalloped card base that is 9″x7″.  I added an embossed panel and holographic gold dot stickers, but wanted the focal point to be the Birthday Number Candles!

I kept the inside plain since many people will be signing it…

Next, I will be giving her a gift card so I wanted something separate for that.  I kept the theme the same with the tone on tone white shimmer paper with gold.  I used gold Dazzle stickers to add accents.

On the inside, I added miniature Birthday Number Candles

Posh High Heel Card

It is time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  This week we worked with shoe and boot files.  I used the High Heel Shaped Card Template File to make this lux looking gold and cream card.  I love this file and have used it a couple times before.

You can make it the shoe shape or do as I have done and just used the top layer to add to a card.  Here is the inside…

3D Cup – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

3D Cup Front

This week at the Cutting Cafe, we were to use the relatively new file, 3D Cup Template and Cutting File.  This is a cute file that you can keep full size as a treat holder or RAK holder, or you can do something a bit different and resize the file and make tiny favors with it. Although the file comes with a lot of sentiments, I made my own which just says Mugs & Kisses and I filled it with Hershey’s Kisses.

I added bling to the top and bottom and on the sides…

Whimsical Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

21 Jul

Fun with Silhouettes Angle View

This week for our The Cutting Cafe Design Team project, we were to use the Fun with Silhouettes Printable Stamps and Cutting File which is full of fun shapes that you can print or cut!

I chose to use the rainbow and clouds shape to make this whimsical card.  I just love the way it turned out.  I used a Spellbinders die to create the card.  I am also using this for a collaboration project where I have to use any two of beads, metal, or fiber.  I used sparkly tulle for my fiber, and a metal piece with birthday on it.
