Happy New Year

Here I have used one of the Happy New Year printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe on a bottle of Bollinger!. We are visiting my brother's over the holidays and I thought this tag would be a perfect for a lovely bottle of champagne for the New Year!

This is the 1st bottle tag that I have ever made and I am quite pleased on how it turned out.

It was ever so easy to make and you can embellish them as much as you like. I can't seem to deviate from my projects being girlie, so on this one I resisted to use a bow but I thought with the harlequin paper it would be a suitable gift for my brother and sister in-law. That is, the booze for my brother and the tag for my sister in-law!

I am hoping there is not too much snow over the next few days as we have a long journey to Kent and it will be so lovely for the cousins to meet up and all their news.

Back at The Cutting Cafe!

I am sooooo happy that I am back again as a design team member for Regina Easter at The Cutting Cafe, starting in January, 2011. Last term I was so busy with family commitments that I decided to take a break. In a way it was fortunate I had a break, because my Pazzles was poorly and had to go away to be fixed, but now it's back, and I'm a happy crafter!

I can't tell you how I missed designing projects for Regina using The Cutting Cafe's printable stamps and templates. I particularly love the .wpc files that Regina designs as I can easily cut them on my Pazzles machine. The files also come in .pdf format so no one misses out.

I hope your will be able to pop back and take a look at my projects but also take a look now at The Cutting Café printable stamps and templates, they are gorgeous!

Shaped Santa Hat

I love this fun shaped santa hat template from The Cutting Cafe. I have also used the Merry Christmas background printable stamp for the main part of the hat.

This Santa Hat Shaped template is really fun and quick to use. For the bobble and rim I have used my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to give some dimension.

I found these flower buttons and pearls in my stash.

I finally added this gingham bow with a bit of outlining using my pen tool in my Pazzles machine.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Shaped Christmas Card

This was a super quick card (told you I was making up for lost crafting time!). I cut out the Shaped Frame base card and made a smaller frame for the main focus of the card.

I used the Christmas Mini Coloured set.....printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe. I printed the December 25th background wording on my colour printer and then cut out the frame shape on my Pazzles. I then cut and layered a smaller frame and used my Cuttlebug to add some dimension to the Kraft card.

Here, I have punched out a snowflake from the same set and layered it onto a scalloped circle. I finally added this gorgeous rhinestone and pearl heart embellishment to the centre.

I have entered this card into several challenges:-

Shaped Ornament and Box

Well, my Pazzles is back home (hoorah!!!) and last night I started making up for lost time!

Here, I have used the Shaped Christmas Ornament as a topper and the box template from The Cutting Cafe.

As soon as I saw this ornament I thought......I must have it! It comes as a .pdf and .cut file as does the box, so they are super easy to use.

I used the rhinestone and pearl flower embellishment to add the bling factor to the snowflake and Pink Petticoat papers.
