My First Explosion Box
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Not much crafting going on here until I finish my decorating. (Yeah, I'm one of those people who decorates every available inch of space in the house. LOL). I do however have something to show you. This was one of those projects that ended up taking me longer than anticipated and I was finishing up a half an hour AFTER we were supposed to be at the birthday dinner. Had no time to take pix so I had to borrow it back. It was for a sweetie turning 12 who LOVES pink and hearts. Thought it would be fun to do an explosion box with this darling collection of papers from Miss Elizabeth's. Lots of girly things going on with loads of ribbons, primas, heart rain dots, and borders using my Martha Stewart punches. The hearts and lips are from Indie Art Cricut cartridge and the sentiments are from the Cuttlebug Birthday Wishes die/emboss combo, the Celebrations cartridge and some Happy Birthday peel offs and I left some spaces for her to put pix of her friends. Next time I'll try to remember that you have to decorate both the front AND BACK of each of the pages and allow myself more time.
