ShortCuts Thursday and The Cutting Cafe

It's Thursday already and I get to break out the ShortCuts craft I've been hiding!! LOL.
It's another day of ShortCuts and The Cutting Cafe. Did you know The Cutting Cafe have to coolest template ever! It's for making a box to hold the beautiful cards you've been making. I LOVE these boxes!! They even come as a cutting file how cool is that?? And combined with ShortCuts clear sheet I've made a window box. I'll be posting a tutorial next thursday on how I made this box.
I almost forgot I made another item using ShortCuts Gift Card Holder Folder (black) and The Cutting Cafe's Melon Greetings Digital Stamps. I re-sized the melone to make it fit my oval nestie! Then I coloured it and blinged it up with some Shimmerz.

I cut all the Designer Paper smaller then the GCHF so that the black would act as a matt. I think the black makes this project really POP! I think this is my first project that I didn't use layers! (well except the oval).

Oh my gosh, you're are so brilliant...I love the lil wrap around the GCHF to keep it closed. I love that...I am always trying to find a new way to close them. Thanks for sharing your brilliance! *wink*

Okay, how adorable are these projects?! I'll definitely have to go and check those sites out as I love templates. Your little gallery today is so sweet, but I have to be honest and tell you that your bunny in your backyard is too cute for words. ;) Hope Thumper didn't eat up any of your flowers!

Hi Melyssa, this is such a crafty idea. I really like your little girl stamp. I also wanted to let you know that there is a Blog Award waiting for you on my blog page. (
