So Grateful

Its November, time to set the big table, pull out the roaster pan, gather with family and friends to celebrate!  Happy Thanksgiving to you all and thanks for stopping by my blog for this November 21st The Cutting Cafe inspiration dt post!!

This week we are playing with the With Gratitude printable file.  The files come with several different sentiments, shapes and designs.  I printed one 81/2 x 11 sheet of a background paper, layered it up, added some chalked edges and a few other elements and created a set of four "grateful" thank you cards to share with friends!!

Each card is created as an A2 size card and work well with the other printable; outside of the card base I only added a mat of solid paper behind each cut of the printed sentiment.  Super clean and simple card set; I'm thinking of making a few more sets this weekend!!

Here's some individual pictures so you can get a closer look at each one:





That printed paper looks so different on each card with the added chalk inked edges; they look so cool!! Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I hope you have been inspired!!  Until next time,


Blessings and Craft Happiness,

A "Global Princess" Birthday

Hey people, how ya doing today!!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today for "Inspiration Time" from The Cutting Cafe design team!!  I love it when we have a free week of creating because the variety of projects the team creates is magical!!  Be sure to check out the blog to see what everyone came up with.  I was inspired by a youtube video I watched to create this globe shaped shaker card.  Here's how it turned out and I love it!


The file I used is Snow Globe Shaped Card and the sentiment is from the Silhouette Store.  My sequins is from Cartwrights Sequins.  The flowers, lace and beads are from my stash of goodness!!

Here's another look after I added some sequins on the outer edge of the globe:



I will store this card until January because it is going to my little princess god daughter for her birthday!  I know she will love it!!  I hope you have been inspired to go create too!  Don't forget to check out The Cutting Cafe blog for more inspiration.  Leave a comment on the blog for a chance to win free files from the cafe!!

Until next time, Blessings and
Craft Happiness!!
