Box Card Bonanza

Several days ago I saw a cute box card posted by Paige Dolecki – Stampologist she mentioned that she was using a new Cricut cartridge and with my love of box cards, I hurried over to Amazon and snagged it!  It’s the first non-CTMH cartridge that I’ve bought.

I grabbed a retired paper pack and played around with this Birthday Box.  After a little frustration I texted Paige who promptly face-timed with me and got me on the right track.

I think I have a little more work to do with the assembly, but I am pretty happy with my first attempt – much easier than free handing all the pieces 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

Everything ABC Blog Hop “O” – OWL Always Love You!

 Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

My O is OWLS

This week my husband and I celebrated our four year anniversary.  I love making him cards for all our special and “non-special” occassions.  Since I recently made a box card that I was pretty happy with I decided that for a little extra punch I’d try another!  I used the Lollydoodle paper, paired with the OWLS and GIRLS ROCK stamp sets along with Cricut Art Philosophy cut hearts.  When the box is open it looks like the hearts are pouring out and I sort of wish that I’d added them to the second tab and put the flowers in first, but it’s all the same and packed full of love!  I told him I was confiscating it back to display on the shelf above my desk – it’s just to cute to be stored in his memory box!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my “O”…Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Lauren’s CTMH Craftings.
