Box Card

I love having people over to scrapbook and make cards but my passion is 3d and when I was asked to show people how to decorate a card with the Cricut I was in my element.
This is a box card. It folds so you can put it into a 6 inch envelope but once the ladies had finished no one wanted to send their cards they all wanted to keep them. The open bottom box is very easy to make  just a box with no bottom! Then add the bars in the centre of the box and decorate. Well I was suppose to show what they could do with a Cricut so I made some bees from Create a critter 2, scalloped hearts with inner hearts to match from CCR basic shapes, flowers from AP and then embossed the flowers in a star burst folder and then gave them  all the things to decorate with. Tis is what they came up with.

 Now aren't those little bees floating in the breeze awesome.
here is a video if the ladies creations with the fan going.

Angels for the Tauranga Breast Cancer support group

Before Christmas I had the honour of being asked by the Tauranga Breast Cancer support group to go and demonstrate Close to my Heart and give them a make and take to do. This is a little angel I adapted from one I saw recently at the Hamilton Cricut club made by Shona D. We made a small box and a 3x3 card and the angel had a small peg on the back to clip onto the box. They were made with the Close to my heart sparkle and shine paper pack and the bulk pack of Chantilly paper.
