Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture. The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.


I started my business in 1993 to give me something to do. I had worked all my life and recently quit to be a stay at home mom to my new baby. I've always been interested in paper products and I didn't like paying full price for some of the things I wanted. So I started my business. I like to pass my savings on to others. I've made some really good friends over the years. I've always been a small business I only advertise word of mouth. Over the years I've kept as busy as I wanted to be.

It has been very interesting to see the hobby industry change over the years. I had a "scrapbook" store in my basement before Las Vegas knew what a scrapbook store was. I've dealt with Provo Craft the entire 18 years I've been in business and that has been fun, to watch them change!! The Cricut Messageboard has allowed me to expand my business but still do it "word of mouth".

That baby is almost 18 (March) and will be graduating HS in 2011, I will be ready to be busier at that time! She uses my supplies more then I do, I have decided I'm a collector of everything. I have more fun selling and helping others then I do creating. Maybe someday, when times are slower or I'm not being a "Taxi Mom" I can create. Until then, I collect!

Supplies Used:

Digital Image:  “Dilly Duck and Ladybug” by Digital Delights by Louby Lou (Colored image with Prisma color pencils and OMS).

Sentiment:  Sentiment is by Devilish Designs.

Template:  Frame card from Shaped Cards set by The Cutting Cafe (created card into an easel card).

Card Stocks:  Yellow, Red and prints (The Breathe Paper Collection).

Die-Cuts:  Nestabilities Ovals/Scallop Ovals.

Punches:  MS Branch punch,  EK Success Small/Medium Daisy punch.

Embellishments:  Silver Flower Charm, Silver Jump Rings, Red Rhinestones, Inkssentials Glossy Accents (duck’s eyes, beak, feet and ladybug) and 3/8” Yellow Striped Satin ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Kym
