Birthday Friendship Exploding Box....................

This is an exploding box made for my daughters best friend for her 5th Birthday.

I used the Hello Sunshine collection which is nice and bright for a 5 year old.

The chipboard 'make a Wish' is a ScrapFX piece.

And the butterflies are punched out of glitter cardstock and glued to acetate to give the feeling of floating or flying.
When the box lid is removed the butterflies move about. 

Thanks for visiting!!
And if you've made an exploding box, please leave a link in the comments as I would love to have a look. I am so addicted to them!

Wedding Guest Book (Project Life style) & a Exploding Box card

I had a girlfriends wedding last month and offered to do her Guest Book.
I went with a Project Life Mini Album and a Project Life Wedding Mini Kit. 
I added the journal cards to the album for the guests to write on at the Reception and added little touches of silver through out the album with embellishments. Such as silver skeleton leaves, silver painted wood hearts, silver doily paper etc.
I loved the way it turned out and so did the Bride. 

I also made an exploding box card for the Bride and Groom to give to them on the day. 

Inside was two layers of pockets for the tags and a wedding cake in the middle. 
On the pockets I put the details of the day and special love/marriage quotes. I didn't cover every pocket with quotes as the other pockets will have special photos of the day which I took.


 I used various textured papers inside to line the pockets.......

Now that the wedding has passed, I need to get the tags back off her and put on them photos of the day that I took.

I'm back..........busy time of the year!

Christmas...........New Year.............School holidays.............looking for a year doctors appts.................busy! busy! busy!

I've been busy over the Christmas break with Let's December Daily which has been so much fun.
I have done December Daily albums for the last 5 years and last year was my first year of doing it in a Project Life style type of album. It was fun and I really enjoyed doing it in this style.
There are 3 other girls on the Design Team at Let's December Daily and we all had different ideas and ways of doing our albums.
So pop on over to see what we got up to with our albums!

We've also enjoyed our holidays at our cabin, so that has taken up a lot of time. Lots of very hot days to sit down by the water and relax.

This week because of the temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius over 4 days, I have spent a lot of time inside and scrapping. A girlfriend came over and we scrapped the day away while the kids played in the pool.
So these 3 pages are what I achieved over the week. My first 12x12 traditional pages for 12 months since I became addicted to Project Life.

This was the very first page that I attempted with a handmade washi tape feather. I am loving feathers at the moment.

Another feather. This time cut out of vellum, scored in the lines for detail and dipped in gold embossing powder. 

I'm off to a retreat at the end of February and hope to catch up with my Project Life 2014 album and do some more pages.
