I'm here today with a canvas that I made that was inspired by a sketch over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. Not only did they have a sketch for us we were challenged to use 1 old and 1 new item in our project. I used pearls by the yard for the old and washi tape that I have just received from Pinque Peacock for the new. :-)
Hello my Crafty Peeps! I'm here today with my final DT Project for The Cutting Cafe. I have had such a GREAT time the past couple of months working with Regina and all of the DT Members -- I just can't believe that the term is coming to an end..... I have learned so much working with Regina and the group. I have tried new techniques, refined my style and pushed my design style. Thank you Regina for giving me the opportunity! I hope you enjoy today's project and I hope to work with you again in the future. :-) So, as I have found myself in a creative whirlwind over the past few months, one thing has become CRYSTAL clear -- I am a messy crafter -- can anyone relate? I tend to pull embellishments that I think I *might* use on a project and have everything laid out in front of me while working on a project. By the time I finish the project I am drowning in my craftermath....Today's project is something that I have put together to try and corral all of my gorgeous bits and pieces.
Hi! Thanks for stopping by today!! :-) Not only am I sharing a new project BUT I'm so excited to be able to share the winner of A Few of My Favorite Things giveaway. I appreciate all of the entries. :-)
The winner is.....

Congratulations Laura! Please contact me so I can mail your prize!!
A lot of times when I create I have a vague idea of what I want the end result to be. Through the process of creating I may, or may not, have a project at the end that matches my original vision. I always enjoy this process and it's results.
This was not one of those times.
I *knew* exactly what I was going to create as soon as I found out that this week's DT project for The Cutting Cafe was the Configuration Box SVG file. Not only could I "see" the end result I had an entire story to go along with it in my head!
Does that happen to you? It was so clear to me! I had such a good time creating this altered book -- I hope you love it as much as I do!!
OK! It is official! I am D. O. N. E. with winter!! I know that the calendar says that it is spring -- but Mother Nature did not get that memo....so I'm here with a special DT project for The Cutting Cafe today to help remind her! :-) The file I'm working with is the Big Girl Elisha Jean and Friends and I really think they are too cute for words!
I just know that Spring will find us eventually......as I write this post we are expecting yet ANOTHER storm...sigh....I'm hoping that this super cute card from The Cutting Cafe will help to take our minds off of the cold!! LOL I think that this Flower Pot Shaped Card is perfect for this time of year! It can be used for so many different occasions AND the file comes with printable sentiments to match any need. :-)
Hi! I'm here today with a DT project for The Cutting Cafe. Our inspiration was the color green. :-) When I heard the assignment, was something spring like. I am so over winter this year that I can't wait to see the pretty flowers popping up!! So, I used elements from the Ribbon Tag Shaped Card and created a pretty tag with a beautiful flower collage.
Hello. My name is Christy and I'm a Flower-holic. LOL Yes, I'm still focused (the word obsessed may have been used in my house recently) on these flowers, so I decided to try something new with this amazing Paper Flower file. For today's design team project I altered the Baseball Card from The Cutting Cafe.

First up is one of my latest projects. :-) I have used the Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazaar paper and I just LOVE how it came out! I have mixed together a variety of embellishments and I think I have achieved a great bohemian look.

The idea for today's project came when I became interested (obsessed) with tags. :-) I've been watching youtube videos and I've been mesmerized by them. I've never made any before and really wanted to try one -- so this is what I made.

I am so excited about this week's project! Have you heard about envelope mini-albums? I have just recently discovered them and they are just too cool.

As my lovely and beautiful daughter gets ready to go back to school today, I put together this sweet little treat box from The Cutting Cafe for her. I have been very happy having her home for the past 5 weeks, but the new semester is beginning, so off she goes. I'm hoping that this week's Cutting Cafe DT Project - a super cute treat box - will put a smile on her face when she discovers it tucked into her suitcase!
