Valentine Box Card from SVGCuts

Hi all,

I know it has been awhile since I posted.  I have been dealing with health issues with my mom.  So far the treatments seem to be working.  Lots of dr. visits.  Hoping 2016 is a better year.

I made these Valentine Boxes for my grandchildren.  They are from SVGCuts.com and were fairly easy to put together.  I used Tombow  glue for the box and it gave a good seal.  I also made the envelope provided  for the box and it fit perfectly.  I used a lot of papers from my stash.  Hope you like them!  The kiddies did.Valentine box2016-02-10 08.02.06

Firetruck Box Card

Hi all,

I made this Firetruck Box Card for my grandson’s 2nd birthday. It was a lot of work but worth it.  The file is from the silhouette store  Design ID #62667 and there is a tutorial for you to follow.  fire truck20150204_185000 Firetruck 20150203_171719 firetruck side20150204_185038

Valentine Mailbox Box Card

Hi all,

I made two of these SVGCuts Valentine Mailbox Cards for my grandchildren.  I love SVGCut files. I used paper I purchased last year. The boxes came together easy but still are time-consuming.  They are an act of love. I suggest using a very strong adhesive on the box to hold it together.

SVG Cuts Tea Pot Box Card

Hi all,

I made this SVG Cuts Tea Pot Box Card for my mom’s birthday.  She is a huge coffee drinker so I consider the pot to be a coffee pot. LOL   I used all the  layers provided by SVG Cuts.  The box takes a little time to assemble but once you make one of this type, it is easy.  I find choosing the paper to be the hardest part of any card.  I added some bling to the flowers–little gems I had in my stash.   I also added some sparkle with Wink of Stella glitter pens.  An envelope  layer is provided but I think I might have one that it will fit.  The finished card is a little bit larger–in height then the standard A2 card.coffee cup box card20141120_142350coffeepot box card 0141120_142336 coffee cup box card20141120_142319

Castle Box Card

Hi all,

Today I made a Castle Box Card for my granddaughter’s birthday.  The file is from SVGCuts.  You can find it at SVGCuts.com.  It was fairly easy to put together.  I cut all the pieces with my Cameo.

I also added vellum behind the windows and door.  The jewels and little flowers were from my stash.  I often cut out extra little pieces to keep on hand.  I am also making her a My Little Pony Rainbow Dash shirt (her favorite pony)  and will share that later.   Castle front2014-06-02 19.30.06

Easter Box in Card

Hi all,

Today I made an Easter Box in a Card for my grandchildren.  I used my Cameo and a file from the silhouette on-line store by Lori Whitlock for the base of the card.  The card is an A2 size when folded .  The cute Easter images  and paperEaster box in a card are from an LD file I purchased.                                                                                                         I cut  the images at approximately 2 inches using the print and cut feature. I also added another insert to the box so I could use more images.                                                                                  Easter box in a cardI am entering this into Cardz TV Card Challenge # 5  Create a card for Easter.

Disney Box in a Card

Hi all.

20140219_180148 20140219_180200 20140219_180234 20140219_180255Today I made my first Box in a Card.  I used the Disney Mickey and Friends Cricut Cart.  I followed the design that Cara Miller posted for the box on her Let’s Learn Cricut Facebook page.  It is a closed group but if you are interested let me know so I can get you added. She provided the CCR file for the box and I was able to figure out the size of the images I wanted to add.  I cut most of the images at 2.5 inches. When it is closed it folds flat so you can put it in an envelope.  It was a lot of work but I made it for my grandson’s first birthday next week and he is worth all the effort!

I am also going to enter this in CARDZTV   3d birthday challenge.  I hope you all have a great day.
