Sabrina's Explosion Box

Made the bow from the Envelope Punch Board

Love this tutorial from Sabrina Radeck! She does a great job explaining this explosion box.  My sisters and I purchased this tutorial from her.  She uses the 12 days of Christmas Graphic 45 paper.  I wanted to make one first before I use the Graphic 45 paper, which is gorgeous!!!  The instructions on Sabrina's blog are very easy to follow.  Check out more pictures below of the inside of the box.

Inside the explosion box
I haven't finished decorating the inside yet. I like the fact you can put pictures on the outside of each of the folders and the journaling can be on the tags.  Have fun making this!!!

Lots of room for pictures!

Brother-in-law Birthday!

Sometimes 2 candles!
This card is for my brother-in-law from my husband.  They always give each other funny, sometimes off color hilarious cards so this year my husband thought it would be funny for me to make him a card!  Mark is going to say that he made it! NOT!  I love this building block technique which is on splitcoaststampers.  You will love making them too!  I wanted a colorful one for him since he is very colorful!  The sentiment reads, You know you are getting old when you get that one candle on your cake.  It's like, "see if you can blow this out." J Seinfeld  Love it.  For some embellishments I used SU punches, nestabilities, MS punch and look at the pictures below and you will see Mickey Mouse's hand holding the balloons!! 

Love Jerry Seinfeld!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!  I made some Valentine hearts for my husband's co-workers. I found them on pinterest!  So easy to make with just nestabilities largest regular heart and scallop heart. I put some chocolate inside them.  I think my new cupid from impression obsession is adorable!!

Love cupid!

Eric's Valentine

I just finished making my son's Valentine. It is called a Building Block card.  I saw the tutorial on pinterest and thought it was adorable and as she says it can be used for almost any occasion.  It really is very easy!!
The tutorial is from Splitcoast but here it is from pinterest.  I used memory box dies, nestabilities, sizzix and the three dimensional heart on the front that says Hugs & Kisses is from Walmart which I found for only a dollar and I got a bunch as you can see.    Check out more pictures below but I have to run to put it in the mail tomorrow!! 
Another view!
