Triple Cube Card Made Easy

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the Labor Day Weekend.  This past week I was honored to be a guest designer over at Splitcoaststampers.  I chose to make a Triple Cube Card for my project.  It's pretty simple though it looks hard to make.  Your friends and family are sure to say Wow when they open it up.
Here is a simple version as shown in the tutorial.
 Below I used the smaller Daisy Punch to add a little more to the card.
Just click on the video below to watch how I made the card.

Grandsons Birthday Cards

Our Grandsons turned eight in July. I can not believe how fast the time has gone by. I always enjoy making them each a unique card to each of their liking. ALthough they are triplets they each have very different personalities and likes. I hope you will enjoy looking at their cards.
I'll start with Reid's card since he was the first born.  Reid loves to play the Nintendo Switch.  I found a great card to case from Pinterest and just changed the number.
Cade is the middle man and he loves Pokemon.   Found a fun card on Pinterest and made it my own.
Jace is the youngest by about 3 minutes.  Jace enjoys riding his dirt bike.
Since his was a bit plain or so I thought I added eight candles to the indie of the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and looking at what I've been up to.

3D Thursday - Patriotic Pinwheels!

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I have a fun project for you, just in time for the 4th of July! Teammate Nicolle Belesimo was at the craft table designing for us this week.  You can find more of her craftiness over at Ellocin Designs.  Nicolle designed these super cute Patriotic Pinwheels!  Let's check it out.
These pretty pinwheels will make a great decor piece as we settle into the month of July next month.  (That's crazy how is that even possible?)  It's been such a crazy year for everyone, I do hope we can all just relax a little on the 4th and be thankful.
Nicolle used a star stamp from the stamp set So Much Happy and Cherry Cobbler and Misty Moonlight Ink to stamp the stars onto her DSP.
 By using the 6 x 6 DSP Paper stack no need to cut the paper down, it's already done for you.  Just cut in at the sides like the directions show.  I will note that these do not spin so are only for decor.  But wouldn't they be cute in summer colors too!  I hope you have enjoyed today's project!  now just click on the link below to print them off and make your own!

3D Thursday - Patriotic Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

Good morning crafty friends!  This week it was my turn at the create desk.  And since 4th of July is right around the corner I thought it would be fun to create a Red, White, & Blue project.  Below is what I came up with and if you would like directions to it you are in luck because they are FREE.  All you have to do is click on the link at the bottom of my post to access them.
 This project goes together pretty quick and easy.  The base is actually a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box which you can find in the new Stampin' Up! catalog.
 I used some of the new In Color DSP named Misty Moonlight to cover my box.  Streamers of new and retired ribbons are attached at the back of the box.
I think the funnest part of the project was using our new Foam Adhesive Sheets!  Oh, so fun!  I attached some of a sheet to the back of a Whisper White scrap and cut out my Stitched Star to be attached to my box.  I love the feel and depth it gave to it!  Now if you would like to make one of these fun little decor boxes just click on the link below to print out FREE directions!  If you are in need of some new products I'ld love for you to shop my online store by simply clicking on the shop button in my sidebar.  Thanks for stopping by today!

3D Thursday - Happy Day Top Tab Treat box

This week's 3D Thursday Project was created by Teammate Debbie Henderson from over at Debbie's Designs.  What a super cute project it is!  A great little treat box.  I think I would have to add chocolates instead of mints though. 
Debbie used some of the fun new In Colors to out together her box.  The basic box used Magenta Madness paired with Bumblebee.
She also used some of the new In Color DSP to add more detail.  The best part is that no dies were used to make the basic box.  Just the Simply Scoreboard!
For the sentiment she used dies from the set Word Wishes.  Are you ready to make this super cute project?  Just click on the link below for FREE printable directions!
