It is an anything goes kind of week - for many on Spring Break and for those who want to play along with Die Cuttin' Divas. This week's challenge is Anything Goes.
Last week my daughter attend a birthday party for a friend who loves Rubik's Cubes so I made her card and gift box to match that love. It was so much fun to put together.
I cut the base of my cube and all the colored pieces got run through my sticker maker ready to go. I followed the template that came with my cut in order to place each square.
I put the box together without trouble and got to work on the matching card. I made a smaller cube and added it to the front with an action wobble to make it move sort of like the twisting cube actually does. I added another on the inside and stamped some sentiments.
I wish I had a photo of the birthday girl - with the box and her actual cube in hand - it was a big hit!! Hope you have a hit this week and get to join in with our Anything Goes Challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
Supplies: - Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons - Puzzle Cube cut - Pink By Design Stamps - Artisan Tags & Love Today sets - Action Wobble
This week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are having fun with 3D projects. We want to see your 3D purses, bags or boxes. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make for this challenge but once I went looking at my different box cuts I got inspired.
I found papers that I liked and wanted to work with and cut the box out of a simple pattern.
Once it was all put together, I layered some pattered shapes to the top and sides. I cut out the brown flowers to coordinate with the colors of my papers and added some gem like brads to finish them off.
I was very pleased with the final look. Not sure what I will use this for, but I have a feeling it will be a great gift box once I do figure it out. Have a great week and come play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas.

It is time for another Tuesday challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas. It is the first week of the month and that means a new sketch for us to play with.
I used the sketch to make a quick card for my daughter. It is competition season again for the dance team and the new dances are wonderful and performing well. This past weekend the lyrical number, to the National Anthem took 4th overall in their division. I wanted a quick card to tell her I was so proud of her work on this number.
I started with the dancer image - I feel like I use these so often that I need to try and mix it up a bit so I selected one with a frame and added a shadow behind.
All the other pieces of the sketch were added with washi-tape, brads and a hand-written sentiment to show how proud. I made it pretty quickly but am happy with the simple results. Here is my dancer in this number!!
I hope you have a wonderful week and get a chance to play along with our sketch challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.

One of our favorite things about Disney are the special surprises that can come your way. On our Christmas visit we were the bell ringing family at Liberty Tree Tavern. We got to go up in the balcony and they read a little proclamation and my daughter rang the bell for the restaurant to open for the day.
I put together a simple Project Life page with the photos from that meal - including the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake (yummy). I added some coordinating cards from the Cinnamon Edition set and added a simple bell from My World to one card.
Just a fun page - and one step closer to being finished with this album (it is taking to long, but I am loving reliving the memories).
Supplies: - Project Life Cinnamon Edition - cards - My World Cricut Cartridge - bell
