Explosion Box

Hi everyon! Here it is! the explosion box I have been working on for the past 2 or 3 days. I made it for a baby shower for one of my cousins. The baby boy is due in about a week. Hope she will be at the shower. lol. This picture shows the top of the box.
This is the front side of the box. I use paper and cardstock I had in my stash; some I purchased at my local Wal-mart. I am working on increasing my paper supply from MemoryWorks. I buy paper from many different sources. The half pearls I purchased at the last crop I attended in Bath, Maine. The ribbon I stole from my jewelry supplies.

I really had fun making this cute keepsake! I looked in every storage container I have to find the embelishments. I have stickers purchased from CM. And stamped images done using CTMH stamps. I used my MS scolloped circle punch and other punched shapes from other punches.

I used a simple technique my CTMH Consultant showed me on this section. (Thanks Sis.)
The section I am refering to is the one with the three stips of paper and the pinwheel. Cutting those three strips and lining them up so they match, but have a small space between them. I think that is so cool!

I used my MS heart punch to do this section of the box and heart stickers from CM.

Most of the embelishments are popped using pop dots. It is hard to see it in these pics. Sorry about that.

The tools I used to create this wonderful box are, Scor-pal (I'm loving it!), Friskers Paper Trimmer, Scissors, and my Glue Glider Pro (I'm loving that too!)
I'm thinking I like making boxes as much as I like making cards. Oh yes, a card! hmm, well I will be making a card to match this explosion box. I guess I will have to post that next. lol
I hope you all enjoyed looking. Thanks for stopping by. God Bless ya! And May all your days be scrap-happy!

two new cards

Hello you wonderful people out there in this wonderful world we live in. I am posting some new cards I have been working on in the last few days. This Birthday card is for my DH boss. I had bought some new cardstock in my local Wal-Mart and thougt it would be perfect for this card.
This is the inside of his card. I just printed it up and matted it and glued it inside the card. Pretty simple and fun card. Hope it is masculine enough.

Here is the flower card I made with that same paper stack from Wal-Mart. If you look closely you can see where I have done some paper piercing. This card is good for Easter or even a wedding. Hmmm there is a wedding coming up in the family next summer.

Her is a (blurry) close up of the flower so you can see the layers. I didn't show the inside. It is not finished yet just a strip of the striped paper that matches the paper behind the flower. I will find something really nice to put inside for that couple who is getting married in August.

Have you made a memory today?
