PDE #13: Box Card - Awesome!

Hi, crafters! 
I have a fun project to show you today. 
This for the new linky party challenge 
that started today at 
PDE Linky Party.




This Linky Party's challenge is MANY LAYERS
Ends: July 7


  • Silhouette Online Store ID# 56154
    • Lori Whitlock A2 Box Card - awesome
    • I did cut out a few extra stars just for fun
  • Pattern papers from Doodlebug Design 6x6 Sugar Shoppe (Royal Castle Shoppe)
  • Silhouette Online Store Word bubble ID# 29232
  • Cardz TV Stamps "It's All About You"
  • Everything inked around the edges

Now, I did realize after I was finished 
and admiring that I actually made a box card, 
that the flap balloon paper is...
well...
it's.....
ummm....
upside down.

LOL

Oh well. I still think it turned out pretty cool looking.
And lesson learned about how to cut out the flaps
for box cards.





Thanks for stopping by today.

Hope you enjoyed my project.

Maybe even got a good laugh at my goof.



Smiles

Road Trip




Hi, Crafters!

I love this Lori Whitlock Tent Style Card Base
I found in the Silhouette Online Store!
When our daughter, Bonnie, saw this, she pointed
at the van and said, "Scooby Doo!"
That's exactly what it reminded me of too.
I love Scooby Doo. Used to watch it every
Saturday morning growing up.

Staying Cool


Hi, Crafters!

Did you hop with us over the weekend?
Scroll down to the previous post to see
the winner from my blog.

Today's card was made especially for the challenge
over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.
Now here's the thing.
The challenge theme is VACATION,
and I kept looking at this fan cut and thinking
of someone sitting at their office desk
dreaming of a vacation
with the fan blowing.
I could not translate all of that
into my card.
So, Lisa, if you need to
delete this entry into your
challenge, I completely understand as it's
not the typical vacation card.
I had fun with it though!

I used the fan cut file from
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.




Autumn Splendor Timeless Twine

Stitched Journal & Bracket plus Tab dies from My Creative Time

GORGEOUS papers and enamel dot (center of fan)
from My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing"

Foam squares to adhere fan cut from the
Royal Castle Shoppe

Cardz TV Stamps "Fun in the Sun" - sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stay cool in this summer heat.

Ink Dauber Organizational Project


Hi, Crafters!

How many of you guys use sponge daubers?
I use them on almost every project.
I have some of my ink pads numbered with the
corresponding number on the sponge dauber.
(Because sometimes it's hard for me to tell
which ink is which by just looking at the sponge dauber.)

I found a GREAT organizational box for these
in the Silhouette Online Store.



Very easy to cut and assemble, and it keeps
those little sponge daubers from falling over
and rolling off my desk.  :)



Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to. See you tomorrow!



OH!  Did you hop with us yesterday?
If not, be sure to scroll down to my 3D Blog Hop Post.
