Birthday Wishes Explosion Box

| Uncategorized

Explosion boxes are so much fun and they are a great way to give someone pictures and memories in a different way then a traditional scrapbook or greeting card. 

I love decorating the outside of my explosion boxes with designer paper and a small embellishment on the lid only and then when the lid is taken off…TADA….explosion of fun!



A birthday explosion box really takes the cake….especially when there is a cake in the center!


This Birthday Wishes Explosion box is 4 x 3 7/8 inches when closed. There are 26 spaces for pictures, notes or to add other mementos. 




Hope you enjoyed my project, thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Cards

| Uncategorized

I love to receive greeting cards and I love to give them…but it has been so long since I have mailed a card. Normally I attach it with a gift or hand deliver but wouldn’t it be a lovely surprise to go to your mailbox and find a special little card just for you! 


With that thought in mind, I have started working on more greeting cards but these I will be dropping in the mail. Here’s to bringing back snail mail!

Each card is a 4 x 5 1/2 inches. I used Anna Griffin Designer paper for the top layer and Close to My Heart cardstock for the base card and first layer. I cut each Thank You embellishment on my Explore.

I can’t wait to mail these out! Thanks for stopping by!

Circle Flip It Cards

| Uncategorized

I love whipping up a good card and this one is not only a quick card to make but it’s also very cute. I love the dimension the circle flip-it adds! 

You really only need great designer paper to decorate but you can of course add as few or as many embellishments as you like. For my cards I added a paper flower in the corner and then made the envelopes with my envelope punch board. 

I stamped the sentiments using my CTMH stamps and the card is a Sizxx die.

For the base of my cards I used Close to My Heart cardstock and you can find it by clicking on the Shop Now icon on the upper right hand side on my blog.

You can find these cards and other delightful items in my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/LoveMeKnotsbyHBD


Hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Mini Center Step Cards

| Uncategorized

I love center step cards and how cute they are to embellish. With that being said though mini center step cards are even cuter! 

These mini center step cards are 3 inches by 3 inches.

First up is the “I like you a latte” card. 

It is embellished with a latte cup and ribbon on the front 
It is stamped with the sentiment on the inside and there is even a spot for your handwritten note.

Next is the “I donut know what I’d do without you” mini center step card. 
It is embellished with a “donut” on the front and ribbon. This donut has blueberry frosting in my mind and sprinkles because who doesn’t love sprinkles!

The inside has the stamped sentiment as well as a spot for a handwritten message.
Last is the “You’re like a cup of tea, you warm my heart” mini center step card. 


The front is embellished with a cup of tea and ribbon.
The inside has the stamped sentiment and a spot for a handwritten message. 

I also made mini envelopes for each with my envelope punch board. 

I made these super adorable mini center step cards with Close to My Heart Whimsy Assortment Cardstock and the Treats of Friendship Occasions stamp set (C1616).

Treats of Friendship

“Never Too Many Roses” Explosion Box

| Uncategorized

I love receiving flowers. I love the smell of flowers and how gorgeous they look in full bloom. 


I however, do not have a green thumb so I am unable to keep flowers alive for very long. Paper crafting saves me in this aspect as I can keep these mementos forever!


Today I finished up this “Never Too Many Roses” Explosion Box. 
This explosion box is 4 x 3 7/8 when closed and when open and fully extended, it is approximately 15 1/2 by 15 1/2 inches. 

I added a mini box in the center so you can add a small gift or treat. It has rose embellishments on top and sits on a paper doily. 

 There are 26 spaces for photos or notes. 

Hope you enjoyed my project. Thanks for stopping by!

Anna Griffin 12 x 12 Scapbook Layout

| Uncategorized

Today I worked on a 12 x 12 Scrapbook layout. This is an Anna Griffin layout in the Make it Now section in Cricut Design Space. 


This was a great project and super easy to put together. 


I love the details and the intricate butterflies that cut so well on the Explore. 


I left the sentiment blank as I am not sure what picture I am using for this layout. Once I decide I will either add a stamped sentiment with one of  my Close to My Heart stamps or print and cut a sentiment with my Explore.


Here is a close up of one of the butterflies, Love the dimension!


Thanks for stopping by!
