How exciting it is to help celebrate a birthday. If you haven't heard, Exploring Cricut and More is turning 4 years old. I'm so happy to say that I've been with Diane on this journey since the beginning and hope to be with her for future birthdays. If you didn't stop by EC&M Monday and yesterday, then you have missed out on some awesomeness for sure!!! Head on over there and check them out right now, I'll still be here waiting on you when you get back...............now didn't I say awesomeness for sure?!!! For my projects today I used the Cricut Explore to cut this box from Fancy Boxes and the candles from Sesame Street-Elmo's Party. Both of these are free for two weeks with my introduction to my Cricut Explore. So glad since I don't have either one. The sentiment on the box is from the "Build A Birthday' stamp set from My Craft Spot. The rhinestones are from Recollections. The bow is made from some seambinding that I crinkled and dyed. For the card, I used some My Mind's Eye-Hootenanny for the bg. I coated the candle flames in orange Wink of Stella Brush and the wax drips in Clear Wink of Stella Brush. Used the same ribbon like is on my box. The sentiments are from the 'Make a Wish' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. The candle stamp on the inside is from the Peachy Keen Stamps Sept. 2014 stamp club set.
We hope you plan on joining us each day this week for all of the crafty goodness and join in on the challenge. We so love seeing what you make. Who knows, you just might be the lucky one to win one of the goodies that Diane is giving away!!!
Hope ya'll like my gift box and card!!!! :)
