 Good luck and have fun!


I'm sharing a fun exploding box with a twist!!  I found the tutorial over on the Facebook group Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations.  Tamra and her DT have a never ending cycle of tutorials, there is something for everyone!!!!  Now to just find more hours in a day to do them all!

I used the Classic Rose Paper Collection for my box.

The twist to this exploding box is that it hides little drawers when you remove the lid!!  There isn't much room for 3D items, but glitter works great for adding some wow.  I added some around the front of the drawer.

Here's what it looks like with the box open.

The Classic Rose Paper Collection has some great tags, borders, journaling cards etc.  I used a couple borders and made a tuck spot for a couple of journaling cards.

I used more of the smaller pieces from the collection to decorate the inside of my drawers.  What a cute surprise when you open it!!


I used the Classic Rose Cling Stamp and matching Die for my flowers.  The big rose I stamped on some patterned paper in the collection, the smaller roses I stamped on white cardstock.  I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape them.

I also used my favorite die Arianna Lace to mat my rose with.  

 
 I added Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter to add some bling to my flowers, who doesn't love glitter!?!

In the lid I hid another tuck spot!  Okay, I confess, I cut my paper too short and didn't have enough of the dark purple to cut another, so I cut a triangular piece to add as a pocket!

These tags come with the Classic Rose Collection!
 
 I used the Border Essentials Die to add a pretty edge to my lid.

And I didn't forget to decorate the bottom, it makes a perfect spot to leave a little personal note.

 Recipe:  HCDP1-270 Classic Rose Paper Collection, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-783 Border Essential Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, Bazzill CS-purple, green & black, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Whisper, New England Ivy, Gypsy, Sorbet & Blush, Distress Ink-Stormy Sky, Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Nuvo-Glitter Accents Fresh Snowfall & Crystal Drops Ivory Seashell, Pearls.


You've reached the end of the Blog Hop, I hoped you were inspired by all the crafty goodness!!

 Good luck and have fun!

Picture Frame:  5 x 7
I have a treat for you today!  It's a Magnetic Die Holder.  How many times do you set a die down on your desk and then can't find it until you dig around like an archeologist?  Ya, me too!  

I was visiting Stamplicity and met a lovely fellow crafter who gave me the idea (we discussed using a whiteboard but then I realized after we talked that it's not magnetic, just metal), I added to the idea  by thinking, "Why can't it be pretty AND functional!?!"  

So now I have this gorgeousness sitting on my desk just waiting for me to place my dies here instead of ON my desk where it gets buried.  And it doesn't take up too much room!!

Here is what I started with.  I bought a plastic stand up frame (it has a base to it) and a package of magnetic photo sleeves at the dollar store.

Tada! Here's the final result using a bit of paper and flowers!  As I'm working on a project I can place my dies here, then when I'm finished I can put them away and not worry that they're lost on my desk.

I used the Wildwood Paper Collection to stamp the Classic Rose leaves and flowers on.  I then used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape them.

I die cut the border using a die from the Border Essential set.  I then added the burgundy mat on top of the plastic frame.  I then adhered the magnet sheet and covered it with a thin piece of pattern paper from the Wildwood Paper Collection.



Of course there's 2 sides, so I kept the back simple so that I had lots of room to place my dies if needed.

Recipe:  HCDP1-274 Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-783 Border Essential Dies, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Bazzill CS-burgundy & green, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-New England Ivy & Outdoor Denim, Rhinestones, Plastic 5x7 Frame, Magnet Sheets.

 Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I went with more of a simple, clean look this time.  I was going to make a shaped card with the Botanic Window die but felt it was too small once I started adding the flowers so I made a cards base for it.  I kept the base small so as not to detract from the window.

I added some pink vellum behind the window to give it a frosted look.

Well who is that?  She's one of the cute fairies from the Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection.

The flowers are from Birds & Blooms and inked with a soft blue and pink colour.  I added Nuvo Glitter accents to the flower centers and the window.

I love tucking in the sprig from the Arianna Lace die set.

Recipe:  HCD1-7100 Botanic Window Die, HCPC-3644 Birds & Blooms Cling Stamp, HCD1-756 Birds and Blooms Die, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCDP1-274 Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Bazzill CS-blue, black & green, CTMH Ink-New England Ivy & Blush, Distress Ink Faded Jeans, White Embossing Powder, Versmark Ink, Nuvo Glitter Accents Silver Jubilee, Foam, Pink Vellum.
