Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Here's To Another Year Of BAD HABITS!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you had a a very Merry Christmas! Here's a New Years card I did using The Cutting Cafe's Happy New Year file. This file is VERY versatile, it comes with 23 images that include sentiments, circle words, background stamps, pictures, frames and journal blocks It's a very bad picture of a blatant scraplift that I borrowed from my dear blogger friend Donna. The colors are all wrong (it's creme and black), you can't see the pattern on the patterned layer and it's out of focus...Other than's very similar to the one Donna did last May using the Your Special File from The Cutting Cafe.---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Image/Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Happy New Years
Background Stamp: Cutting Cafe-Happy New Years
Card Frame: Cutting Cafe-Happy New Years
Punch: EK Dotted Scallop Edge, EK Scallop Photo Corner, EK Mountain Fern, Martha Stewart Branch
Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Mulberry Roses
Base Cardstock: American Craft
Patterned Paper/Cardstock: DCVW La Creme

This is a very sad day for me, It marks the end of my term with The Cutting Cafe. This is the last posting as a member of The Design Team. I've been with Regina since August of 2009, to say that I will miss her is a understatement! Not only is Regina very easy to work with, she has always made me feel appreciated for the job I have done for her. She has been there at every turn with nothing but words of encouragement and praise. I have grown since I have been on her team and I truly feel blessed to have been a part of The Cutting Cafe's Design Team. At this point, I'm not certain what I am going to do to fill the void but I will be taking some time off to take care of personal business that has been neglected and I have GOT to take time to CLEAN up my craftroom. I still have the clutter from Halloween in my way. With that being said...I will see you when I see you...Enjoy your day!

Hi Kelly, what a fantastic card for the New Year. Sorry to hear you are leaving The Cutting Cafe, but yes I understand that you need time to spend with your family.. Since I started in my teams I also feel I neglected it a bit too. Hugs xxx

Hi Kelly! I hope you had a nice Christmas. This is a lovely New Years card. The sentiment is sad but true. I'm so sorry to hear you are leaving the Cutting Cafe, I always looked forward to your postings. I understand you taking some time off, crafting can take over your life, but I hope you'll be back soon. The best to you and your family for the New Year!

Great Card. I love every thing about it!! I don't ever think about a card for the New Year but maybe I should. I would have the perfect person for this one. Sorry about your leaving the cutting cafe but you did need to have some time for yourself and family. Don't be too busy for that because you it can be gone in an instant. (I know). Happy New Year to you and yours. Hope you are not gone too long. Friends always, Lorene
