Fall Explosion Box ( LOTS of pics).



Hello there,
I made this little explosion box that is exploding with detail. The top has a "Fall" paper corner that I cut with the Cricut and used it as a title. I also used the Cuttlebug and only one folder throughout to keep the same leaf motif in the box. The orange and gold flowers are my own creation. The individual layers are all stamped differently, glimmered and the brads are metal and felt. I also added a green ribbon to the border of the Fall die, and a cream ribbon to the border of the box. I used several techniques and was really challenged by the small size, but I hope you enjoy it as I have!

This is the top of the explosion box.
This is the side profile.
This is what you see when you open it.
This tag has an origami flower attached to it and I stamped and colored it.
This is the back-side of the same tag. Stamps are Close to My Heart.
I embossed the paper with the Cuttlebug and stamped the tag, colored it and added  the flower and button.
This is the tag outside of the pocket.
I used several stamps and freehand doodling for a journaling spot.
Another pocket with a felt flower embellishment.
The "lace" border here is actually a stamp that I fussy-cut and added to the border of this tag. The flower is also stamped and hand painted. 
Here's the inside with a small journaling spot. 
I stamped other images and popped them off the page to add interest.
This bird is from the Cricut, I hand cut the paper behind it to make it into a sleeve. I also embossed and inked the paper to match.
The little owl is in a "window". He is popped against the background.
This tag I stamped and embossed, and repeated the flower image in different colors,  and popped them atop the ribbon. Then I finished it with hand-stitching around the border.
It also has a journaling spot.
It fits nicely in the embossed pocket.
I used another bird image and repeated the technique on the opposing page.
This is a cute little slider I made with my Cricut, stamped and inked to match the paper.

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!
