I Love You A Latte..........

(Not real sure why this post isn't layed out correct~ it's a mess and I can't correct it~Sorry)

I can't believe I actually finished my project for The Cutting Cafe.  I had one problem after another.  First, the silhouette studio kept freezing me up and I kept having to start over.  It happened, not one, not two, but three times.  Yes, I said THREE!  My husband said, "That's why you are suppose to save your work!"  Yep, I know that, It wouldn't let me before it would freeze up again!  Oh, the next problem was cutting.  I've had a few issues in the past with cutting, but not like this.  It would cut each image at least 6 times and still not cut all the way through the paper.  Oh well, I finally got it done!

    Do you like coffee?  I like it more now than I use to.  Today I had two BIG cups (I usually only have one, but I had to wake up).   I haven't had alot of fancy coffees or lattes.  Heck I'm not even sure what a latte really consist of.  When Regina at  The Cutting Cafe designed this adorable cutting file I immdiately had a idea of what I wanted to do with it.......One was use the saying "I Love You A Latte" 

For my project this week I used:

COFFEE CUP SHAPED CARD 2 template - cutting file is approx. 4 by 5.25
The set comes with 9 sentiments (will punch out using a 1.5 inch circle punch), 4 misc images and an inside pocket to hold a gift card.
  This is the sentiments that comes with the set.

I hope you like my card!

I used my Silhouette Studio to cut out the SVG files that come with this set.  I really enjoyed making this card despite all the problems I had with my Cameo and the Studio progam.
Additional supplies:  Craft cardstock, white cardstock, double sided tape and red ribbon

 Oh, I almost forgot to post the picture of the problem I was having with my Silhouette Cameo.

It would cut each image at least 6 times and it still would cut all the way through.

I had some really bad cuts this time.  It was very frustrating.

This circle is a close up of the mess it was making....UGH!
