Remake with The Cutting Cafe

Hello!
This week at THE CUTTING CAFE, we are recycling....either a jar or can.
I had this can that I had previously recycled...but it needed a new look! With Christmas almost here-you always realize that you really should have been saving ahead! So, I made a "remake" for just that purpose! I used THE CUTTING CAFE file: Christmas Basic Shapes.


Thanks for stopping by!

The Cutting Cafe Inspiration

This week at THE CUTTING CAFE, it  was a free week for the dT, so we could use any file we wanted!! I thought the SNOWMAN TREAT BOX would be fun with Christmas getting closer and closer( and fast)!! 
Isn't he just cute as can be? 


What a fun way to give the teacher, or bus driver, or anybody a little Christmas Cheer!
I used a Peachy Keen stamp for his little face, and added a snowflake on his hat,rather than using the cut-outs from the file for his face, but that is the beauty of The Cutting Cafe...you can personalize your projects with your own items as well!!
Hope you will stop by THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG in the next couple days to see what the rest of the DT came up with to share with you! I know Regina was having server issues, so I am not exactly sure what day/time it will be.

Don't forget too, that THE CUTTING CAFE SHOP has tons of crafting goodies, and clear stamps...you can even order your own personalized Custom Clear Stamps!!

CardzTV Sketch Challenge...

Hello!
Today we start a new sketch challenge over at CardzTV---use either sketch 5 or 6 (sketches can be found on Mary's blog: HERE) and make it a Thanksgiving Card.
I made this card using more of the embellishments I went through lately..trying to re-organize my room..and I really need to start using these up, and I thought this turkey was a cutie!
The sentiment is a CardzTV stamp from the set: FALL FUN.




Do you remember singing this song in school? I do!

Come join in the challenge!
Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day!!

These are so much fun!!

This week our inspiration over at THE CUTTING CAFE- is: GABLE BOX

Yikes, I think I am in trouble! These were so easy and so much fun...that I can see lots and lots of GABLE BOXES in my future!! I made up two of the Mini Gable Boxes, (there are bigger ones on the file too) and decorated them with some stickers I have had for a long time, and I just love how they turned out!! These will be perfect for something little for my Grandsons teacher and her assistant right before Thanksgiving break!
They would also be perfect for the mailman, the garbage guy, your hairdresser.....as a little Thank you for your service at Christmas or any time of the year! 
OR ya know what they would also be perfect for? Baby showers, or you could even use these adorable little boxes as decorations with names on them for your seating arrangements....you get it-the possibilities are endless!!


I hope you will stop by THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG on the 7th to see the rest of the DT inspiration!
And don't forget, you can now get clear stamps, and tons of other amazing crafty items over at
too!!
