Jewelry Sets – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project Featuring Joy Clair Stamps

Jewelry Holder Set Featuring Joy Clair Stamps

Here is the box and necklace file with Joy Clair stamps added.

For this The Cutting Cafe design team project, some of us collaborated with Joy Clair Stamps to create our projects.  I used the Jewelry Holder Set from The Cutting Cafe to make earring and necklace holders and boxes, and the Shine Bright Stamp set from Joy Clair.

One of my staff is heading a fun fair for her school and my mom made jewelry for her for the silent auction.  I wanted to make a couple of cute boxes so this is what I came up with.

I altered the file to remove the earring holder section and cut slits to make it a necklace card.

Here is the second set…

This set features the earring card and I embossed the stamps with holographic embossing powder.

Popcorn Box Vase

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.

Mini 3D Shadow Box Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

Mini 3D Shadow Box Card

It has been a while since I posted but I am slowly but surely coming back!  We moved and I haven’t fully unpacked my craft room yet.  But I am digging out things to do cards and projects for.

This card is a design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  It is the 3D Shadow Box Card Template and has many options, different shaped openings, layers, and sentiments.  I chose to alter the size and make it 3 x 3 inches so I can use it as part of a swap that my friend Scrapdaworld is hosting.

Here is the inside…

I added a glitter heart in the window but you can add pictures, sentiments, etc.  Also, if you keep the embellishments relatively flat, you can fold the card flat and put it in an envelope.

Reflection: My Favorite 2018 Project for The Cutting Cafe

21 Dec

Hello Everyone!  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Whatever You May Celebrate!  Since it is a busy time for everyone, for this posting of design team projects for The Cutting Cafe, we were asked to reshare our favorite project we did for 2018.

That is sort of a hard task for a creator of anything as everything you create tends to become your favorite of the moment.  I looked at my projects for this year and there were a few that I was going between as my favorite.  I was going to select two because I just could not decide.  But, without further ado, the project that I chose as my favorite this year is…

Typewriter Shaped Card

Typewriter Card

The typewriter card I created this summer for a staff person celebrating her 25th work anniversary was not my usual color palate but I loved the softness, but yet the sparkle of this card.  I made it with the Typewriter Shaped Card file.  To see my original post on this project, along with the video of it, click here.

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Hello!  It has been a while since I posted, or even crafted.  We recently moved and I did not have time for anything but packing.  I have not begun to unpack my craft room yet, but I dug some things out to do this project.

For this posting of the Design Team of The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file to work with as long as our project was about Christmas.  I used the Snowflakes Kisses set which has two boxes, the treat box, which I used and a square box.

The paper I used has holographic foiled snowflakes on it.  I had some holographic bling so I added those to the centers of the big snowflakes on each side.

The bling center is holographic to go with the holographic foiling on the paper.
