Lollipop Shaped Card

Lollipop Shaped Card

I am soooooooooo excited today and have been running around the house singing "I been picked, oh yeh" the children think I am mad (poor old mum she has really lost it today!) but YES I have been chosen to join Regina Easter at The Cutting Cafe as a Design Team member. Unfortunately, I then came back to earth with a bump when I saw the list of talented design team members and gulped! So, bear with me on my journey as this is the 1st time I have ever done this type of thing and hope you will enjoy my creations.

For those of you that haven't heard of The Cutting Cafe why not take a look here. Some of you may recognise the name Regina Easter as a very talented lady who ran BBTB (Bitten By The Bug) a challenge site for many years for Cricut owners. I sought my inspiration from following her design team and challenges. Regina stepped down at the end of 2009 from BBTB to concentrate on her own site, The Cutting Cafe.

Since I now own a Pazzles Inspiration die cutting machine I have contributed a few projects to the Customer Gallery and now I am so honoured that Regina has asked me to be a Design Team member.

As an announcement of all the NEW Design Team ladies Regina has decided to celebrate ... so from today until midnight Monday (June 28th, 2010) for every set you purchase, you can get another for free of equal or lessor value...there is no limit on this special...Wow!

So, those of you who would like to know more about The Cutting Cafe why not click here and see the wonderful printable stamps (digi stamps) and templates that you could use on your projects.

Here is my 1st project as a Design Team member using the Lollipop Shaped Card template from The Cutting Cafe. To make this project I have used Coredinations cardstock which has been embossed, sanded then glittered for a bit of bling! The base card uses Kraft card and Crafty Bitz paper from my local papercraft shop. The template has been cut on my Pazzles Inspiration Die Cutting machine and I love it!

The sun is shining in the UK and I couldn't help making this Lollipop Shaped Card while the rest of the family are watching the World Cup!

Challenges entered with this card:-

Crafty Creations Challenge - Ice cream and cakes
Wee Memories - Free for All (WMC13)

England Themed Cake Shaped Card

I keep hesitating to whether I should put this Cake Shaped Card on my blog but England won their match yesterday so the card is still relevant (till Sunday!) I am not a great follower of football but my 6 yr old son is football mad. In fact he is playing with his football and friends in the driveway as I type!

I thought I would use this cake shaped template from The Cutting Cafe, add a few England colours and there I have a birthday card for an England Football Fan!

Unfortunately, there are not many challenges to enter this card into but I hope you like anyhow.

American Football Shaped Card

The kids are now back at school so I can get crafting again......such joy! I am loving this shaped card template that I have just made from The Cutting Cafe which has some great files....just hop over and take a look.

It was such fun assembling this Shaped Football card as I could add soooo much dimension to it, and for a change it was great to make a card for a man!

I cut the template on my Pazzles Inspiration which I am having a love hate relationship with but I am enjoying the challenge!
