U Fold Box Birthday Card


Our youngest sister's birthday is this weekend! I have been looking for a different type of card to make for her and came across a tutorial for the U- Fold Box Card on Pinterest!  I just love it!   I was able to use my stamps/dies from My Favorite Things-Recipe for Happiness.  That would be the Chef along with some of the utensils.  I also used the stamps from Lawn Fawn- Sprinkled with Joy-  the oven along with some jars.  



I did make the oven larger by cutting the oven and mounting it on white cardstock.  The stove I made using some paper clips I had and adhering them with Crystal Effects.  Oh, I made the Chef taller by cutting longer legs for  him....

Check out Tammy's great tutorial!  I love how she made this into a tool bench and dressing table!  So cute!

The card box does lie flat as you can see from the picture below.  The recipient just has to push the stove top down to form the oven.




Lastly,  here are a couple of pictures of the back of the card.  Plenty of room to decorate.  I used some stickers I had in my stash to finish off the card.  I think I may make another one but I am trying to think what else I could do for a scene.   Hmmm..... barbeque? 







Hope your day is fun!

More Saucy!


Wow!  It seems like forever since I last posted anything to my blog!  I wanted to show you what I have been up to since my last post.   I am working on another "Saucy" Album!  You might remember that I shared a link to Country Craft Creations site last month.  I joined thru Facebook to get access to all their wonderful tutorials - and they are free!  There is a site called "Coffee Talk Creations"- and this site has a Shop Now button that takes you to where you can purchase some of the items in their videos.   For example, I did buy the Art Glitter Glue and I just love the stuff! 
Here is that link-




I followed Tamra's instruction but did change a couple of things.  Instead of the pocket on the right side of the album- I made a Waterfall! 



On the left side of the album- I didn't do the pockets that Tamra made- I made a flip out booklet.  Once I have completed my album - I will post more pictures.  I am using Graphic 45's Precious Memories collections.  I am also using some of the Mother Goose Collection from Graphic 45.  Love both of these wonderful collections!


I haven't been spending all my time in my Craft Room.  I went a couple of times and picked strawberries!  I froze a bunch but we had strawberry shortcake many times - we actually got tired of eating strawberries.  Now, I am waiting to hear that the raspberries are ready to be picked at our local Pick your own farm!


My husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary on July 2nd!  I can't believe how fast the years have sped by!!   He is such a sweetie and brought me some roses to surprise me! 


I have made it a goal to try and take a walk for at least 30 minutes every day- weather permitting.  Yesterday, I made it to 45 minutes and discovered that Topsham has a little park just down the road from us.  It is small but a very  pretty park.  They do have a little building that has a couple of picnic tables so you can have a lunch there.  I just loved it!   I have included a couple of pictures I took of this scenic little park. 






Sorry for the long post!  July has been very busy and the rest of the month is going to fill up fast.    Since I retired in March- it has been like a whirlwind.  I have really had fun doing things that I never had time for before!  I am looking forward to enjoying the rest of the summer season!  Hope everyone is having a great summer!
