THE CUTTING CAFE INSPIRATION

Good Morning!
This week over at THE CUTTING CAFE we are using one of the new Pop Up Cards Regina has designed....so fun! This little TULIP Pop up Card was just perfect for me to make this week, as I had a Thank You to make. There is a business in the next town over that sells plants and flowers...5 years ago when they opened we had stopped in there to look around. The owner overheard my daughter Emily saying excitedly that they had a flower named Emily!! Well, he GAVE her one of her own! The next year we stopped in there to buy Mothers Day hanging baskets, and he said "you are Emily, aren't you?" and he then proceeded to GIVE her another Emily flower!! Then he made us promise to come in every year to get her flower, as he said she brought him good luck every year!
He informed me last year he still had our very first Thank you card! How cool is that!?
So, this is this years Thank You...perfect....thank you Regina for making such awesome files!

The Cutting Cafe

Good evening!
This week at THE CUTTING CAFE we were asked to use a pinwheel file.
 I used the file: Pinwheel Sentiment Template.


This pinwheel file could easily be addicting! I watched a video recently of someone who made a bunch of  little pinwheels to use as embellishments for scrapbooking pages....and it would be so easy with this file to adjust it to be smaller....how fun! I think I will definitely have to try it when school is done!

I hope you get the chance to stop by THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG and check out what the rest of the DT did with their Pinwheel files!
Hope you all have a great week!

Saturday Paper A La Mode Challenge....

Hello! Is the weather getting nicer where you live? I think it is supposed to be fairly nice here this weekend.

Challenge: Sparkle and Shine

This week we have two sponsors:
and

I have used MY LADYBUG from Sasayki Glitter Digital Stamps for my framed baby gift.
I added Wink of Stella to several areas on the image for my sparkle/shine.


I made this for a gal at work who has now just had her baby. She had said her baby's room was going to be purple and gray and maybe some white, thus the color scheme. I even found a cute little stuffed Lamb to go with it!

I hope you will stop by and check out our challenge-and then feel compelled to make something up for it to enter!
Saturday Paper A La Mode is over on The OUTLAWZ site....if you haven't joined yet, let me know and I can send you an invite! You will find lots of challenges and inspiration there!!

Hope you'll stop by again real soon!
P.S. I have a few pics of my craft room HERE if you care to take a peek.

A quick craft room tour....

Hello! This week for THE CUTTING CAFE, Regina thought it would be fun to share some pics of our craft rooms! I can't wait to check everyone's out! You can find them on THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG on April 21rst!
So, here are a few pics of my new craft room-it is not as big as my last one, but that is ok. We made the old craft room into a super sweet double room for my youngest daughter...so giving up the space was totally fine with me!
I wanted to go with a soft color of blue-and I love the color I picked.  I also wanted hardwood floors, so no more carpet!! I went with a whitish wood floor, and again, I love it-so glad I didn't go with a darker one as it would have made my room look even smaller! My hubby did a great job!!





And I have to say that I also love the chair I picked out for my birthday for my room, isn't it pretty?!! I has some light colors too, and is a paisley print. My grand daughters name is Paisley, so of course I like it even more!

Hope you will stop by and check out the DT's craft rooms, and don't forget that THE CUTTING CAFE has a sister store now also, where you can find all sorts of crafty goodness and personalized stamps too-at THE CUTTING CAFE SHOP.
