Happy Birthday Box Envelope Card

Good Friday morning to all.  It's almost 6 a.m. and I'm bleary eyed but eager to get this day done so I can have a great weekend.

I finished this Happy Birthday Envelope Box Card about a couple weeks ago or so and just now getting it posted on Facebook   This card file was created by Cheryl Scrapinmini and Eva, both of Creative Kuts. (found here on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/381667938541774/).

Using my Cricut Explore machine and Cricut Design Space I created this:


(edited in picmonkey.com)

All the paper I used from my stash accumulation   The inside attachment, I created another 'box' and glued to the sides of the box (believe the original design had them glued individually.)

I will be adding the number 17 to the card as I am planning to give this card to my granddaughter who will be 17 in October (I feel OLD!!).

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and May God bless you all.

More on West Palm Beach Mission Trip (Album in a Box mini-album)

I'm sharing photos of what I have, so far on the Album in A Box mini-album ... the project is not finished as I have to order some cardstock, but here is what I've done:


Please excuse the mess under the table :-)  This is the top/front cover of the Album in a Box mini-album.  I will be adding either seashells for embellishing, or a baby size flip flop to the right side corner.



This is the back side of the cover.  I printed the flip flop onto watercolor (lightweight, almost like the texture scrapbook paper you find  online or at craft stores).  Trimmed to size, and before I glued it down, I inserted the posts w/screws to each corner for legs to stand on.



This is the inside of the Album in a Box.  I decided I wanted the waterfall effect for photos and decided to make as a doubled side waterfall,  Inside there is a flap that will be matted that folds down to put photos on each side and the inside (I will take pictures later when finished)

The inside of the bottom cover I will use the hidden binding system and add four or five pages that will have flaps and/or pockets for more photos, etc.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today.  And every father out there have a Happy Father's Day.

More coloring pages


A coloring page I completed and framed; and hung in my bathroom.  I used my Stampin Up Ink markers to color this page.

I am working on two more coloring projects for the walls in my apartment.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and have a blessed week.

Album in a Box

This will a long blog of photos of a Album in a Box project I am making; and unfortunately I had to halt the work as I ran out of adhesive but soon will go to Hobby Lobby and purchase some.  I love Scor-tape but I don't quite have all the money to order (Hobby Lobby does not carry it!!).

The inspiration for this Album in a Box came from a live tutorial on Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations.  Once a week she has a tutorial of a album to share  where she gives the measurements, etc in the video.  I love this Facebook page, and she also has a store Country Craft Creations where she sells the supplies for the albums, i.e.: chipboard, adhesive, paper, etc.

So now onto the photos of this project:











Thank you so much for visiting with me today, and hope this gives you all some inspiration to create this Album in a Box.  Have a blessed weekend.

A Mother's Day Card

Good morning everybody.  I would like to share a Mother's Day Card I made for my  daughter-in-law last month, using a file from Creative Kuts.com called 'Rose Punch Out Card' part of a set of  Punch Out Cards by Cheryl Scrappinmini ... i.e. Cheryl Walton of Creative Kuts.




This is the front of the card, using what I have available in my stash of paper/cardstock.  I added three gemstones, and a butterfly for decorations.


And this the inside of the card.  The title 'Happy Mother's Day' I printed it white and than colored with my gel pens.  The Rose I cut and sponge the edges with distressed ink 'Tea'.  Added a bee and couple of gemstones.

I edited my photos in Adobe Photoshop Elements and created a framed picture using a weathered frame from (I believe) Creative Market.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a blessed day.
