Christmas in July Blog Hop!

 (approx. 2.75" x 2.5")

Good morning friends!  I'm so happy you are joining me today for a Christmas in July Blog Hop I am participating in with a few friends.  It's never too early to get started on Christmas cards and gifts.  I'm actually getting started much earlier than usual.  I've been working on some card gift sets for my co-workers. I just got 2 new Christmas stamp sets in from Sweet n' Sassy and Red Rubber Designs this week!  They both have poinsettia's in them.  I'm planning on putting together some samples so I can work on them on my 2 day drive to Colorado next week.  

Today I am featuring projects designed using files from The Cutting Cafe. If you need more Christmas inspiration then make sure you stop back by the week of July 28 to check out Christmas projects designed by the Design Team for The Cutting Cafe.  

Some of the participants of today's blog hop are offering give-aways, so make sure you complete the blog hop.  Read more about my give-away at the bottom of my post.

The first project showcases "Present Treat Box".  The Cutting files are available in WPC and SVG.  I hand cut mine using the PDF file.  I also used Gina K. Designs "The Magic of Christmas" stamp set  and Spellbinders "Layered Poinsettia" die set.

This little treat box was designed using "Stocking Box".  I don't really plan on giving anyone plastic silverware for Christmas, teehee.  I just wanted to give you an idea of the size.  I think    peppermint sticks would be perfect for this box.

Next up in the blog hop is 

Here is a list of everyone in the hop :

Strawberry Treat Box and Shaped Card for The Cutting Cafe

Good morning friends.  Today I am sharing a sweet little treat / gift basket designed using "Strawberrry Treat Box" by The Cutting Cafe.  The choices for our DT assignment this week were the treat box above, "Strawberry Shaped Card", or the "Berry Sweet Greetings Printable Stamp Set".  The only thing extra I added was the scalloped mat at the bottom of my box.  Read more about how to create one below.  

The Cutting Cafe DT blog post up will be up later this afternoon.  Hop on over and check it out so you can  get lots of inspiration using these files HERE.  

All the files from The Cutting Cafe come in PDF, SVG and WPC.  I don't have a cutting machine.  I wanted to make sure the borders around the card matched.  After printing the images on cards I cut around each shape leaving about 1/8" border.  I lined the green leaves / stem over the strawberry and adhered it in the center with a piece of double sided adhesive tape.  I wanted to go back later and pop it up, so that's why I didn't adhere all of it down.  Next I created a folded card 5" x 7".  I adhered the strawberry to the front of it allowing part of the strawberry to hang over the fold edge.  I trimmed around the image, trimming off the part of the image that was hanging over the folded side.  I pulled the leaves / stem up and then adhered it with pop dots.  Of course if you have a cutter, then you let it do all the work, teehee.

Some of the files in the "Berry Sweet Greetings Printable Stamp Set" are already colored for you.  I printed the bingo card twice.  I trimmed around the bingo card with one of them and then layered it on black card stock.  I trimmed around the scallop on the other copy and layered it on black card stock.  I used pop dots to adhere the bingo card.  I was going to use the pre-colored strawberry's as well.  But my printer was acting up and you could see faint lines across the solid area's.  So I printed the images on card stock instead trimmed the pieces and then layered them.  Regina has great instructions on how to print just one image from a PDF page HERE.  I print mine first on printer paper.  The image is in the center of the page.  I use a piece of light tack tape to adhere a piece of card stock or patterned paper over the image, then run it back through the printer.  Make sure when you trim you paper you leave extra space at the top to run a piece of tape over it.


The first thing you have to do is figure out what size to cut your rectangle mat before trimming the edges with the border punch.  So I measured from where the edge of the paper would be to where I wanted the edge of the treat box to be.  For this particular punch it ended up being 1 little line (1/16") short of 1/2".  Which = 7/16".  I guess you could just added a little more and made it 1/2". But that looked to wide to me.  

You need to multiple that measurement x 2.  7/16" x 2 = 7/8".  or if you prefer the 1/2" measurement .... 1/2"  x 2 = 1".  

The size of the bottom of the treat box is 2 " x 3 7/8".  So you would cut your mat 2 7/8" x 4 3/4"   (using the 7/8" + 2" and 7/8" + 3 7/8").  Now punch around all edges with your border punch and then adhere the box to it.  Clear as mud??  I hope that made sense.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
hugs, Melisa

Christmas Gift Bag / Box with a Reindeer Image

****  OOPS!  so sorry.  I just realized what the title said when this one went out to everyone.  I just changed it.  Originally this post was set up for a LOC blog hop, but it was cancelled.  Sorry if it was misleading ***

Good Morning!  Today I am sharing a gift set designed for Stamper's Sampler Magazine and I'm proud to say, it made the cut!!  In fact I have several projects in the Oct / Nov issue.  I used Creative Cuts and More pre-scored / pre-cut die cuts and Layers of Color Reindeer Waltz.

Gotta vent for just a minute ....  I have to go to my husband's Work Christmas Dinner.  Notice I said "have", teehee.  This is going to be torture for me, seriously.  I don't know anyone, and I'm not exactly a social butterfly.  I'm happy in my studio creating and could go DAYS, without ever leaving the house.  My favorite get togethers are when someone comes over to craft with me ...  and I don't have to leave the house.  Say a prayer for me, I know I'm a grown women, but I have a little social anxiety.
How is the Christmas shopping and putting up the decorations going??  We started putting up the decorations the day after Thanksgiving.  I have 1 tree done.  I have a second tree in the diningroom I have to put up.  I found the CUTEST christmas salad plates really cheap at Walmart.  They have little holly branches and birds on them!  I will try to take photo's soon and share.
Have a great day!
hugs, Melisa
