Heart (Blog) Candy & Fun Card Box


Hi Everyone! My blogoversary is coming up the first week in June and I will be celebrating a month early since my baby is due the first week in June! Every day for the next two weeks I will be posting a new prize. To win that day's prize just leave a comment on that day's post by Wednesday, May 14. I will select the winners for all the prizes on Friday, May 16. You can win more than 1 prize! I will be using random.org to select the winners. If you are a subscriber, you may leave two comments on each day's post for an extra chance at winning. I am finally clearing out the rest of my supplies that I just haven't seemed to use!

The first prize is this very cool Fiskars teeny tiny cassette punch. I actually bought two of them! Super fun for scrapping or stamping and it's something the kids might like too! Just leave a comment on today's post for a chance to win. Tomorrow I have to work, so I will try to post before I leave, otherwise the prize will be listed in the evening.

Today, I am sharing a very cute card box. I got the directions here. I used the Friends and Flowers Simply Scrapping kit (retired) from SU. I utilized the stickers and paper that came with the kit to decorate the box. The cranberry ribbon is CTMH.






Then I made 4 cards to go inside the box. The cards are standard 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. There is minimal stamping, all stamps are SU. I mostly utilized the papers and stickers that came with the kit. I am very happy with how it turned out. I'll be giving this box of cards to my grandmother as part of her Mother's Day gift.

Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to leave a comment!

Golly, your baby is due sooner than I had realized. (although I'm sure it doesn't feel that way to you:) I know your grandma will love that box of card project you made but if she's anything like me, she'll have a hard time parting with any of those cute cards you made.

Wow, how fun! You must be in the "nesting" stage of pregnancy if you are cleaning up and getting rid of stuff and organizing.
