UP, UP and AWAY!

Hello all, I made this card in honor of an upcoming trip I'm taking. Yes you got it, I'm going for a ride in a hot air balloon. The card is made from the Pop up cartridge. The papers are all from Michael's open stock.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be sure to let you know how the balloon ride goes.

My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

I’ve been missing in action lately but I’m back now. This post is for “My Pink Stamper Design Team” Challenge. It was the perfect challenge because I needed to make a baby shower present and the challenge colors are the colors being used in the nursery. I’m posting this a day before the shower, so SHHHH…

Here is the challenge:
Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......

(other optional color of your choice)

With this in mind I crocheted a baby blanket in turquoise. When I give a blanket away I put it in a box that matches for safe keeping when it is not being used. I purchased a box from Michael’s that has a magnetic closure on it.

I painted the edges of the box with turquoise paint. Then with spray adhesive I applied 12x12 scrapbook paper all around the box. After all was completely dry, I used brown ink to ink the edges to give the box an antique look. Then for finishing touches I added some ribbon and a bow.

I added large turquoise beads found in the beading section at Michaels for feet.

Using Rock Princess cricut cartridge I cut out the shadow of the crown on row 2 and embellished it with clear stones. I did not attach it to the top of the box because it will be the tag for the gift. After presenting the gift, the crown will then be adhered to the top of the box for additional embellishment.

Here is a picture of the blanket:
