summer goodness

Okay, today is chock full of goodness for you!!! I made 2 Quarter fold boxes with Lids from the Cutting Cafe. Here's the beauty of Regina's projects, you can print them out on solid cardstock and then embellish them with your lighter weight pattern papers. I bought a whole box of gorgeous K&Co papers but those papers are fairly thin so I printed the boxes out on my favorite Kraft paper by Speckletone.

The "Sweet Summer" box is topped off with Regina's New
Sweet Summer stamp. I added an American Crafts details for a bit of fun :)

I used the I Love Summer stamp on my 2nd box. I thought the Kaiser pearls added a nice smidge of bling!

These boxes are great...I was able to fit 4 cards & envies in them. I made it like a DIY kit..I wrapped ribbon around 1 of the cards but left the others plain. I coiled the ribbons for the other 3 cards and popped them into the box.

So you wanna see the cards? They are 4x4's...I made them clean and crisp. I just used some fun American Crafts rub ons:




They make a nice all-occasion set of cards. It's a great gift for a co-worker, yup, these went to some former co-workers of mine that will be celebrating their birthday's soon.
I have another card to share with you but I wanted to let you know that Regina is letting me give away the Quarter Fold box w/Lid along with the 2 summer stamps!


Leave a comment and I'll pick a winner sometime on Sunday. I'll close up the commenting tonight at midnite Pacific Daylight time.

On to my Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Challenge Card! I was thrilled when Mandy contacted me to see if she could base this week's sketch on my bloom card.
Here's my take on Mandy's sketch:




It's a nice combo of Amy Butler and October Afternoon papers along with Unity and Impress stamps. Those cute Unity mushies are on glue dot pop dots...

Okay, thanks sooo much for stopping by!!! Remember to pop by tomorrow, it is 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!
