Birthday Themed Explosion Box

Thank you for stopping by!
It had been years since my last Explosion Box, and I needed a quick Birthday gift to contain a gift-card. I was surfing through Youtube and decided why not?
This was the perfect way to make my small gift to my bestie look more personalized.

This is the view from the top. I added colorful flowers and a pennant with the sentiment. I made the flowers with a sweet die set from Ali Express.
The inside pops open to reveal a 3D cup. In it, I placed a gorgeous teabag ( you're seeing a paper rose in the picture) The small card in this picture contained the sentiment, and housed the gift-card, but the box had a small set of personalized cards also, that she can use for notes. The note cards all coordinated with soft colors. I used my Cricut to cut them out. as well as the envelopes. 
I made a quick video, and the recipe for this 3D card is: Cricut Explore Air2/ Design Space 3 Flower,Doily, and border Dies from Ali Express Cup of Love Dies from The Scrapping Cottage P…

Thank you for stopping by! Today I am sharing a beautiful card made with Santoro London Gorguss Girl , On Top of The World. I love all of the Gorguss Girl stamps, and this one in particular has a girl sitting on a wire with her little bird friends.
She is so adorable that I pictured her as pretending to be a bird as well. After coloring her, I gave her a plumed headdress with silver and pink feathers.

She is sitting on the front of a birdcage, free as a bird, and the front of the card has a huge girly bow made with white cardstock, pink vellum, and a small embellishment center. The fence underneath is a beautiful border, and behind her I used a die to color the sky with a doily pattern and oxide inks.
This card is now complete with a beautiful sentiment, a button, and birds that peek out from behind a beautiful scrolled fence.

Thank you for stopping by!
I recently received a small order for a wedding shower, and I was thrilled to add my personal touch to the items I created for the bride. She was looking for lanterns, and I was so happy that Cricut made this so easy for me. Using nothing but the best quality supplies, the lanterns were impeccable, and the little box was where I also delivered the tealights for her special day.








Use Cricut Design Space 3 to Make a beautiful Glue Gun holder!!

Thank you for joining me!
There are several tutorials available to make your own version of this project. They are all beautiful, and I decided it was time to give it a go! This is just my version, but you know I had to use my Cricut Explore Air and make it pretty!! First, gather your supplies. This means a haul trip to the $$ store, where you will find a glass piece for the bottom and a candle holder. Go for something heavy, as this is meant to hold your glue gun and keep it from sliding off your table. The size of the opening should allow your glue gun to rest comfortably. I was fortunate to find one that had an opening large enough for my glue gun, and has a favorite Bible verse from the book of Joshua!!  I used the Gold glitter vinyl & my weeding tool (retro Cricut user here!)


Once I weeded the vinyl, I noticed the bottom is actually silver, and just as beautiful as the top!
This vinyl came with the Strong Transfer tape ** I do not prefer this tape**, you may use the regular …

World's Best Dad - Monocle Steampunk Card

Thank you for joining me!
Father's Day is soon approaching, and I was inspired to make a Steampunk style card with a wonderful gear background image from Cricut's Design Space. This card was fun to make, and I hope that you also enjoy it!


This card features an elegant image of a man in a tall hat, wearing a bow tie, and monocle.  The colors are masculine, with a black background full of gears. This adds to the Steampunk style of the card.

The white background is also embossed with several mustache images. His monocle is made of vinyl, a long-lasting sturdy material.
To finish the 6' square card, The title reads World's Best Dad, on movie tickets across the front. You may gift this to dad with a set of movie tickets to complete the theme! This card is made with high quality card stock, and the inside is blank to add your personal message. It also includes customized black matching envelope.
Be inspired, Be blessed!- Raquel
