Hi Everyone! FYI -I revamped our team name to the Creative Cafe'. At our Cafe' meetings, we get together to stamp and talk about what's brewin' at Stampin' UP! or in the crafting world.

At convention, I attended the Village of Cuteness class and knew I wanted to try it at home. Jeff cut  houses for me and Creative Cafe team. Last month, we painted our houses. This month, we will make our Fall side of the houses. Next month, we'll turn them around and decorate the other side for Christmas! The new designer paper Spice Cake (available Sept1 from the Holiday Mini) is the color inspiration for the fall side.
Confession – until convention, I never new SU sold Textured Cuts Wood Sheets 116309! I had totally overlooked this item. It is what the doors are made out of and can be used to make interesting elements in our cardmaking and scrapbooking. Plus, you can run it through the Big Shot!


DSCN0955 The sheets can be stained by simply dragging your ink pad or stampin' spot down the wood. It has a smooth backing so adhering to your projects is a breeze.

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

(Join my Stampin' UP! family now through the end of October and I'll send you materials to make you own Village of Cuteness – Creative Cafe' style!)
