Showcasing with The Cutting Cafe

 Hi everyone I hope that you are enjoying your Sunday as much as I am.. It is pretty Warm/hot today.. but not as Bad as it has been.. As a matter of fact we had cool down quite a bit over the last week. So actually today is the first "hot" day that we have had.. But I am sitting under my fan and the window is open soo I can't complain too much.

Today I want to showcase a few cards that I made using some Awesome images and "cutting files" that I got from The Cutting Cafe.. If you have seen Regina's Blog and "on line store" then you know that she has the Best SVG and PDF files and images you can imagine. 
If that was not Awesome enough Regina has just launched a "Cutting Cafe Blog" Wow soo excited. On the new blog we will get to participate in some great challenges, giveaway and best of all some Amazing inspiration from her and her DT. If you have "never" visited "The Cutting Cafe" you don't know what you are missing out on.
 This Little cutie is "Elisha Jean" and she is a Digi and cutting file set from TCC. She comes in 3 different set (each of a different nationality.. so there is something for "everyone" and they are just as cute as the want to be.  Now if you look at Elisha Jean you can see that I "paper pieced" her dress.. That is the best part of this set.. She comes with a separate file for her dress and all the accessories that come with it.
My DD has a birthday coming up in a few days. Right now she is away working at "summer" camp.. So for the last few week's I have been sending her a little package to celebrate her Birthday.. So this "easel" card that I made is for her.. It will be going out Tomorrow with the Mail..
I just went really Fun and bright and of course "bling and sparkly with this one.. Balloons and cupcake are from EK Success "Jolee's Boutique". Sentiment is from PTI and so is the card stock. DP is from We R Memory.. they where from my "scrap" stash soo I was happy to use them up. and my I-Rock and Bling :0)

Birthday Sundaes- Birthday Sentiment
Gingerloft- make is sparkle
Just some Lines- Easel card
Wags N Whiskers- Birthdays
Cute Card Thursday- Going around N circles

Now my next design is also from TCC. This Dress is also a template and cutting file. When I saw Regina's example on her 'blog I knew that I wanted it for my self. Now I do own a "cricut" But I don't own any of the SVG software. But that's fine because you get it in several different format including PDF ( which is what I use)

 This template came with soo many different template with in it's self including a "matching envelope" and a "Party Invitation" insert for you to use for the inside .. Great for any girls or party favors.
Again my card stock is from PTI. DP is more from my We R memory. I added some button and a Prima to the front of my dress.. ( I am not so good at cutting at all. you can tell if you look at the neck line :0)).. So I decided to add some "liquid Pearls" ( was not too good with those too.. But I think it's still pretty cute :0)))

Joyful Stampers- ATG Fridays
Phindy's Place- Pretty Pastels

Last But not least I have show cased my little crafter before too ( my DD Lynette- 5 yrs) she is an avid card maker like her mom, and when I told her I was making my card for her sister. Of course she had to make her one too.. beside cutting out the dress for her ( when I printed it was 2 on the sheet).. Everything else is done by her and her alone. 

She is a "big" fan of Stickers too hehehe :0)

This is ALWAYS my favorite.. because I stamp the back of my cards and sign my name.. She does it too.. Just love having someone to share my passion with.

Happy Scrapping,
