Christmas in July ~ with Cyndy G

Today I am sharing a box card I created using My Scrap Chick's Christmas Nativity 1- Manger and Box in a Card A2 (square rounded).  
I just love box cards and the adorable MSC files are perfect for creating custom box cards.

Nativity Box Card

I started by putting all the pieces together on my desktop and scaling everything down so that the Manger was just slightly larger than the back of the box card.  The Manger is approximately 3.25" wide and Joseph is just a little over 2" tall.

Nativity Box Card

I inked all the edges and added some foam tape behind the star.  I love how everything came out.  Hope you have a wonderful week and don't forget Christmas is just 173 days away, you better get busy if you are going to make your Christmas cards this year :)

Thank you for stopping by.

Sunflower Box ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello, today I am sharing a beautiful Sunflower 3D Hex Box from the kit JGW Sunflower Sunshine by SVG Attic. 
Everything in this kit is stunning.  I made the box as a gift for a friend of mine.  I know she will love it.

Sunflower Box

The box is surprisingly easy.  You just need some time to put all the petals together.  
It was also the first time I have done a rosette.  I had my son help me hold it while I glued it down.

Sunflower Box

I used Graphic 45 - French Country.  It is out right now as a Deluxe Collectors Edition.

Lightning Bugs ~ with Cyndy G.

When my girls were little one of their favorite things to do in the summertime was to catch fireflies.  So when I saw this cute little Lightning Bug Box from My Scrap Chick and the Canning Jars - Preserves cards I knew I wanted to make a shaker card with them.

Thanking our Volunteers ~ with Cyndy G.

Hello everyone.  Thank you for stopping by.  This week is National Volunteer Week.  If you work with some amazing Volunteers - take a moment to say Thank You!  If you are a volunteer - thank you for all you do!  I happen to work for a organization that has a great many volunteers.

Today we took some time out of our day today to honor our volunteer and say thank you.  Since tape won't stick to our office walls I decided to use the Big 3D Pop Up Letters to create a banner on the table.

Pop up Thank you Sign

Since the lunch was for our Master Gardeners, I used the adorable Garden Gnomes to accent the sign.  The paper is Graphic 45 - Enchanted Forest.

Easter Chick ~ with Cyndy G.

Happy Friday - thank you for stopping by.  Today I am sharing with you a darling little chick box.  He is so cute and pretty easy to put together.  He can be found in the SDS Hop To It kit.  I also made some carrot boxes from JGW 3D Button Jointed Bunny.


Isn't this chick just the cutest!  There are slits in the front of the box that you can thread your ribbon through, it is very handy.  However, if you don't to add a ribbon - it comes with an option without the slit.  The box is a nice size.  You could fit several small pieces of candy in it.


The carrot boxes are super easy and you could make a lot of these in a small amount of time.  You can fit two boxes on one sheet of paper or shrink them down to fit more.
I used some Doodlebug Design paper I had in my stash.


Thank you for stopping by.
