Thinking of You Card Made With The Cutting Cafe Shop Stamps

Good morning! I hope you are all enjoying a nice relaxing Sunday. 
It's a great day for crafting here in Alaska. It's rainy and cool. 

I whipped up this thinking of you card in a matter of minutes, thanks to a couple adorable stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe Shop.

There are so many possibilities using these two stamp sets!
I love being able to paper piece the outfits for the little girls. 

If you haven't checked out The Cutting Cafe Shop, you should! They have custom clear stamps, blocks for stamps, adorable papers, washi tape, cute confetti and more. 

Thank you all for stopping by today! Have a craftastic day!

Back To School With The Cutting Cafe

What!?!? It can't be time for the kids to go back to school! The summer just started! 

Somehow, August has snuck up on us. We now have a Junior, a freshman, a 4th grader and a Kindergartner. The 3 other kids started school on the 15th and my baby starts school on 22nd. This will be the first time in 16 years that I do not have a baby at home. Excuse me while I cry! 

Ok, back to reality. The Cutting Cafe DT is making back to school type projects. We were given a few files to choose from...the PENCIL or APPLE TREAT CUP or the PENCIL or APPLE shaped card. I chose to use the Pencil Shaped Card for my project. 

Instead of using the pencil as a card, I used it to decorate my card. As soon as Echo (my soon to be kindergartner) Saw the pencil she said "Oh, this is SOOO CUTE! You should make this for me to go to school." So, that's exactly what I did. I made a card to put in her lunch box for the first day of Kindergarten. Did I mention that was Monday?!? This Monday!!! 

After cutting the pencil out with my Cricut Explore, I scored 2 lines down the center of it and then inked the edges and score lines with wild honey Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The sentiment I used is also a Cutting Cafe file that comes with the Back To School Shaped Card

The little bear is a file from Little Scraps of Heaven.

Monday is the big day. The day my baby goes to school. I have been a stay at home Mom for 7 years. What does a stay at home Mom do when there are no children staying at home? I figure I'm going to embrace it. That's what I'm going to do. After we drop Echo off at school, this stay at home Mama is heading to the Spa for a massage and pedi! 

Thank you all for stopping by today! Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe on the 21st to see the rest of the Design Team's project. You won't be disappointed! If you leave a comment there on the inspirational post you will be entered in a chance to win 3 Cutting Cafe files of your choice. 

Have a great day! 
Hugs, Tina

Thinking Of You

Hi everyone! 
Today I am sharing a card made with one of Ady Almanza's adorable images. 

It seems like it's been forever since I have worked with one of her images. Ady is one of my favorite artist! 

The fish head is from the Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge...Fish Head #M2EF92.

I love the simple look of this card. I'm thinking I need to make a few more like it. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I will see you all again soon. Have a craftastic day!

More Fun with the Birthday Stamps From The Cutting Cafe Shop

Hi all! I am back again with another card made with the ADORABLE birthday stamps from The Cutting Cafe Shop. My favorite thing about these stamps is how you can use them over and over again without duplicating a card. (of course you can if you want to.) 

Here's the card I made tonight.

I used both of THESE stamp sets...

Another one of my favorite things about these stamps is how quick a card comes together. It doesn't have to take hours to make a cute card! (I'm usually one of those crafters that spends 3-5 hours on a card. Insert stressed smiley face here)

Ok, I'm off to do some more crafting! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great night!
