Easter Coasters

Hello again!  This week has been hectic and filled with unexpected challenges so I am a little late with this post!

For this weeks design challenge at "The Cutting Cafe" we were to use the "Little Red Wagon" file or the Easter Fun printable file which I chose to use.

I decided to use the printable files to make a set of Easter coasters.  I think they turned out rather cute and would make a great little gift.  The were very easy to make.  I die cut 1/4 cork and then die cut the printable files in a circle (I added a little distress ink around the edge prior to mounting on the cork).   I then used the same die as the cork to cut a plastic overlay to put over the printable file.  I ran both the circles from the printable files and the plastic overlay through my large Xyron machine so putting them together was a snap! 

Have a great week and enjoy some creative time!

Postage Stamp Shape Card

This week I created a cute little card using the postage stamp shaped card file from The Cutting Cafe.

I used a little Polaroid die cut on the front and used the little stamp that comes with the file to embellish the card along with some washi tape and stamping. 

Easy-peasy!  Give this cute little card a file if you have an electronic cutting file you will love the Cutting Cafe's files.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Time to get the Valentine's Day cards done and in the mail!  How fast time passes, seems like we just celebrated New Year's Day!

I love Valentine's Day and sending cards to those I care for!  This year I created my cards from one of the printable stamp files from the Cutting Cafe.  The file I used is the animal and bug love printable set,, these printable stamp files are a cinch to use and give such a professional finished product,  if you haven't ever tried using the printable stamps it is time to do so! 

The Cutting Cafe has a wonderful variety of these printable files available for instant download.

Hope this Valentine's Day brings you love and happiness and hopefully some chocolate or flowers as well!

Have a great week!

Let's Plant a Garden

It is gardening time again and that thought made me want to grab some photos from last year and create a scrapbook page.

I used the Seed Packet file from "The Cutting Cafe", this file features a wonderful cut file for a seed packet and also two great printing files, mini words and tags and great little sentiments!

I used a Tim Holtz tattered flower garland die to make the little 3D flowers.

I am anxious to see how big our sunflowers get this year.  Thank you for visiting and don't forget to stop by "The Cutting Cafe" for more great files!
