My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

The Pop-up Cards and handmade Boxes have been packaged for sale.  Everything I used on these cards was from my stash!  There is such a variety of brands used that I created a check list to be included with each card/box.

I love to use rosettes with Pop-up Cards.  They give depth and add a great place to put sentiments and small images!  I use the Tim Holtz rosette dies and the Cuttlebug!

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the Pop-Up Cards!  Maybe you will find a little bit of inspiration as you create Valentine Day goodies for the ones you love!

Stashing thru the Snow! First challenge!

I have been challenged to use my stash of paper, embellishments, stamps, and everything else that is carefully stored and labeled in my craft room!  I need this challenge!

First challenge is to use anything that I have stashed away and needs to be used!
I have a large stash of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch  handmade cards
I have created a notebook box using the following directions...
I am creating and decorating notecard boxes and adding 4 cards/envelopes in each box.
The notecard box in this photo is decorated with an extra cut from
Cricut Cartridge "Paper Trimmings"
I plan to use the stash of cards and Cricut images to make as many Notecard Boxes as possible.
The local art store is selling these Notecard Boxes with Cards!
