ShortCuts & The Cutting Cafe

It's Wednesday so time to show you a new ShortCuts project. Just like last week the ShortCuts DT worked with The Cutting Cafe printables again. A perfect combo! This week I used an envelope template. With Father's Day coming up I wanted to create an envelope for a gift coupon. This one is for my dad. My mom and dad are on holiday, and don't have access to the internet, so it is safe to already show my Father's Day gift.



Supplies: ShortCuts Clear & Frosted Full Sheet, The Cutting Cafe Envelope template Patterned paper: Scenic Route Tools: Sizzix Stars #2, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Four, Martha Stewart Zigzag edge punch Rub-ons: Martha Stewart Transfers Buttons: Rusty Pickle Twine: Jillibean Soup

Next week I will post step by step instructions for this project, so be sure to check in next Wednesday.

As said, my mom and dad are on holiday for 3 weeks. Just like last year (and the year before) we went to visit them for a weekend. We left last Friday around noon, and came back home on Sunday evening. The weather was beautiful (except for Sunday morning), so we spent lots of time outside. We went to the beach, rode a bike, went to a large playground, had a BBQ and sat in the yard. We had a wonderful time and I wish we could have stayed longer.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new Jillibean Soup layout. Have a wonderful day!
