Exploding Box!

Hi blogger friends!

I have an exploding box to share today.

Entering in this challenge:

Fab n Funky - #407 Exploding Box

I got this octagonal exploding box from Scrapbooking Mad which is a digital company out of the UK. You can go here. Pretty high quality images and a huge assortment of  card types and themes. And they provide the instructions for everything. I've purchased several kits from them. Pretty reasonably priced too. But you have to print and fussy cut everything.


                        Top



                A bunch of The Paper Shelter images I've collected over the years.


             A little surprize gift box in the middle.


                     Pretty fun!


That's it for today, thanks for stoppin' by!
And thanks to Fab n Funky for lettin' me play along.

One Last Christmas Card

Hi crafty peeps!

Can you believe it's August already!?! Sheesh, it's flyin' by!
I have my last Christmas in July card to share today.

Entering in these challenges:

Artistic Inspiration - #205 AAG
Crafty Sentiments - AG
Creative Fingers - #150 AAG (Won Top 3!)
Creative Moments - #149 AAG
Cut It Up - #153 Christmas in July* (Won Top 3!)

Penny's - #391 AAG
Polkadoodles - #30 AAG
QKR Stampede - #306 AAG
The Paper Shelter - #349 AG
*Cut It Up - Crafters Companion & Impression Obsession dies

This is called a bridge card following the Christmas in July theme. The buck in the trees is a Sheena Douglas Christmas Deer die frame from the Scenic Winter Perfect Partners Collection that also has stamps to match which is what the snowy trees background is, all by Crafters Companion. The doe, fawn and birds are from Impression Obsession and dazzles from Paper Wishes. The sentiment is a stamp from Stampendous and I covered the tree branches and ground with Snow Tex. The matte, mirror and glitter papers are a luxury cardstock also from Crafter's Companion.

**FYI** Just thought I'd pass this little tidbit of info I just happened to  stumble upon. I used stayz-on ink for the senti because regular ink smears on matte and mirror papers and I thought, "Uhhg! My new stamp was stained for life!" But, oh contrare!! Being copic certified and knowing copics, as well as most permanent markers are alcohol based, I wondered if stayz-on ink was alcohol based as well and came to find out, it is! And, if you wash your stamp with alcohol and give it a good scrub, (I used a toothbrush) right after you use it, you can get 90-95% of the stayz-on ink off your stamp. How cool is that!! No more unsightly stained stamps, unless, you're ok with that. (Guess I'm just easily thrilled or OCD!)






That's it for now, hope you enjoyed stoppin' by.

*Dies R Us - Drum & spellbinders die(inside)

This is a b-day card for my oldest son who's a musician, among other things. He comes from a long line of musicians. My grandfather played in the Philadelphia Symphony on all the woodwinds, my grandmother a pianist, my dad was a drummer, my husband was a percussionist, (congas, etc.) I played keyboards and sang.
He was also accepted into the University of Washington's aeronautics/astronautics program which will start back up in the fall and wants to work at NASA when he's done.
I wanted to make him some kind of space card, but I didn't have anything space related in my stash. Maybe next year when he graduates.


It's kinda hard to take pics of this mirror paper without it reflecting everything. You have to take it at an angle.
