More Boxes........

Still making more boxes!!! I was able to make more boxes last night after finishing up with all the explosion boxes. Whew... that was alot of work but so worth it for my family. Anyway these boxes measure 3 1/2" x 4-3/4". When I get the chance I will try to do a tutorial. I'm not really good at it but I'll try. I love the colors of the DP by American Crafts "I Heart You" that I found from Scrapbook Heaven. I was looking for cute Valentine prints and found alot there. I used Rosalie because she's cute and I love the flowers. Thanks for stopping by and Have a great Day!


Explosion Boxes

I'm finally finished with the explosion boxes that I had planned on making this weekend. I'm sure you all have seen them before. Once a month my sisters and I try to get together for either breakfast, Champaigne brunch, lunch or dinner at a restaurant to catch up on anything new with each other. This month we're planning on having a Valentine's lunch early next weekend since our niece and nephew will be here from Maui and want them to join us. We are also having our other nieces from here joining us too. I wanted to make something special for each one of them. I will be inserting some pictures of them of the past and also including that large hershey kiss too! I hope they'll like the boxes as I tried to make each one different. The boxes is a 4" square. My other sister is also planning on having a couple paper games to play and prizes to be won. How fun!!! She has created some purses with gift cards for the prizes. Hope I win something. I will take pictures of her purses since she does some awesome purses. I have not convinced her to start a blog so I guess I'm going to have to post them when I see it. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Weekend!
Here's a picture of the large kiss that I am including in the box. The kiss fits just right in the box.
This is for the guys that will be there.


Box of Goodies

I've been working on this box for a couple days and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I finally decided to use it for my rak goodies for my friends. I used the Rosalie image and just think she is so cute. I added some bling to the flowers and her heart buttons to spice it up but you can't see it in the picture. The DP is from K&Company (Sparkly Sweet) and these are the papers that I brought home from Las Vegas when I was there recently. I brought back almost 30 lbs. of paper in a box and my husband thought I was crazy. I thought I was crazy too but if I didn't get them then, I would have dropped the monies in the slot machines. At least I got something better!! Got it at a great price from Joann's.
Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!


"2010" Calendar

I finally got the chance this weekend to make something crafty. I've been seeing the easel cards and calendars while visiting other blogs and wanted to try it out. I tried many different sizes and finally got the size I wanted. I also changed it a little and used my calendar that I created so I could have the calendar standing up inside of it laying flat. I'm going to take it to work and try it out to see if I like it. If it works out okay I'll be making a few for some friends. Hopefully I'll be able to start creating more stuff and start posting more.
I also want to change my blog background and hopefully I'll be able to find the time to do it. Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Week.
