Dress Up Time!

This weeks design team assignment over at "The Cutting Café" was to use one of the adorable purse files they offer, perfect for all those girly girls out there!

I chose to use the Purse Shaped Card and Treat Box file, on a layout of my daughter as a little girl playing dress up! 

The great thing about scrapbooking is the memories it brings back when we study old photos and think of stories associated with them and as always it seems like yesterday.

Stop on over and view the many great creative files at The Cutting Café and if you haven't tried one, now is the time!

The Thief

This weeks design team assignment over at the "Cutting Café" included using this adorable Vintage boot cutting file.

I cut the boot out of kraft cardstock, sprayed it with water and crumbled it up to give it the look of worn leather. 

I used it on a cute little layout of my 3 year old grandson going on the merry go round and taking out a gold token instead of putting one in.  Oh the sweet innocence.  He had a free ride and one to spare!

Have a great week!

My First Christmas!

This weeks assignment over at "The Cutting Café" was a Christmas in July theme and I chose to use this great cutting file:

Although the file was for a greeting card it had great possibilities to use in a scrapbook layout.  I just started scrapbooking at Christmas time 2011 so I have so many untold stories and photos that I will never be caught up!  Although I always keep current with the year I am in.  It is fun to go back in time and look at the old photos and the memories they evoke.

I used a clear transparency for the snow globe overlay cut and put my photo behind it with some confetti so it give a fairly realistic look of a snow

Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

The Nail Salon is not just for Girls!

This weeks assignment over at the Cutting Café was to use one of the adorable nail polish cutting files.  One was a great file to make a wonderful giftable box to hold a nail polish and the other was the cutest invitation for a spa party! 

I love using these wonderful files for layouts and I was trying to think how I could use the file when I remembered I had this cute photo of my Grandson sitting in a child pedicure chair this spring.  So, hence the layout began using the invite file:

I kept the layout simple and used one photo with some journaling. 

Stop on over and take a look at all the wonderful files Regina offers!  All of the files are an incredible value!

Have a great week!

Strawberry Cake Yum!

I have a ritual of having family Sunday dinners and this week I was hungry for lasagna and a strawberry cake.  It just so happens that the Cutting Cafe's design team assignment included an adorable strawberry card file so what better way to use it than on a layout with the strawberry cake recipe.  I am always looking for my favorite recipes and I think I should start to put them in a recipe scrapbook.

Here is the adorable file I used.

Stop on over at The Cutting Café and see all the wonderful files there are to choose from!

Have a sweet week!
