No Box cards today!

Well tonight I decided that I would make something other that a pop-up box card! Shocking I know as I am seriously addicted to them. Any way....I purchased some Megan Suarez digi stamps ages ago, but never got around to doing anything with them (which is code for "I forgot all about them").

I haven't done anything fancy or clever with them, I just coloured them & put them onto 4x4 canvas which I painted & added a quote. Nice & simple, but I think they look cool. I am going to print off the other images in various sizes & do the same so I can hang them or put them on stands together.
When I am a bit more flush I would love to buy an original piece from Megan as I love her work, it will be hard to choose just one.

I don't give a Scooby Doo!

Inbetween washing, ironing & cleaning I squeezed in a little craft time & made another pop up box card.
This is for a Scooby mad 5 year old. I had to fussy cut these out of a magazine as I had no images of Scooby & the gang. First I mounted them in cardstock to make them more sturdy.
I think it turned out OK.
Tomorrow I have a few hours spare to make a few others...a new baby & a 21st birthday, time to break out my new balloon dies!

I did warn you!

I am making soo many of these it's scary! I have yet to photograph them all, but will try & get them done tomorrow before they go. After a search through a box of decoupage I came across these old woodland creatures that I thought were screaming out to be added to a box card. They are adorable, & I had completely forgotten about them (along with a lot of other good stuff, out of sight out of mind...we all got some of that going on I bet).

I am crafting with a friend this weekend & guess what we will be making LOL....I have warned her they are highly addictive. I am seeing them all over pinterest which doesn't surprise me...once you pop, you can't stop!

How addictive!

Yes you've guessed it I have discovered the pop up box cards & I am addicted! All the Gorjuss Girl ones I have made A5 size which fits perfectly into C5 envelopes, but I have also made some smaller ones (which I forgot to photograph before giving away Ooops)

I just cannot stop making them! I had seen Craftwork Cards have them ready to put together but I really didn't want to buy any more stuff so I just had a go at making my own. 
All I did was divide my card stock by 4 and allow an extra 1/2" for a tab, & then score & cut. (There are tutorials out there, that I discovered AFTER lol....that would have made my life easier as trying to make sure they fit into envelopes was tuff).

Prepare for A LOT of these style cards to start appearing on here, as like I said I am have been warned!
