Friday marks the end of February and the end of my 6th Anniversary Blog Celebration. I have enjoyed the fun of collecting things for the boxes and reading your comments each day. Today I have a quick recap of the contents of the boxes - I bet you have already forgotten about some of the early additions.
Here they are by day - if the item in each box is not identical there will be a photo of three similar items and one of them will be in each box.
|12 x 12 20 sheet pack of Core'dinations Core Couture glitter cardstock|
|heart patterned washi tape|
|Garnet and Peridot Martha Stewart glitter embossing powder|
|Martha Stewart Hearts and Flowers Stamp set|
|all of the pieces needed to make this card (one card kit has a starfish instead of this fish)|
|also a full sheet and a cut up sheet of this printed cardstock|
|one of these three sets of special German gift paper for making wreaths (and other things)|
|Fabric Flower Florettes by Webster's Pages|
|a set of winter sparkles and...|
|...one of these sequin butterflies|
|Three yards of each of these three ribbons, ladybugs, gingham and birthday balloons|
No photo yet (my machine should arrive on Friday) but the next item is a selection of scalloped shapes cut by my new Explore - I want to test out these circles and scallops!
This Friend stamp was added by my friend Joy - you can check out her blog, Obsessed with Scrapbooking HERE and her CTMH website HERE
|some pretty charms from my local antique shop|
|Martha Stewart Birthday Brads|
|Five little muslin bags|
|a set of five bags and a sheet of the Square1 Iron on printable fabric (oh and a spare bit of ribbon tying up the bags!)|
|pink and blue baby borders for pages or cards|
|a sheet of Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium chipboard shapes|
|a dozen vintage look 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch cards and|
|one of these 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch matchbook notebooks by TIm Holtz|
Today I am adding a paper album kit. These were sold by Creative Memories and they are a lot of fun to put together. You can use the paper album as an elaborate card for someone.
The kit comes with an envelope if you decide to mail it to a friend or family member. All of these papers, die cuts and stickers are included.
I have also included a brand new mini tape runner so all you will need to make the album is some photos and a pen.
The album cover is printed with a shiny pattern - it show up more noticeably in bright light.
Yes, those boxes look pretty full - there will be one final little goodie on Friday.
I didn't receive my new Explore machine today but it is scheduled for delivery sometime tomorrow. I had a quick look around at the Design Space and I will share my thoughts on that as soon as I can test a few things.
If you have a new Explore and have questions about it, be sure to see the very detailed and helpful FAQs on the Cricut.com site - you can find them HERE.
How do you play along in the blog celebration giveaway?
To enter for a chance to win one of the three boxes - see all of the details on the first blog celebration post HERE. Then come back and get your comments in on this post. Remember, if you sign up for the new newsletter (see the box at the top right of the page) I will be choosing one person from the subscribers as a box winner (you don't need to leave a comment here since I can see that list).
Today's question to answer in your comment is:
Do you prefer to create a project "from scratch" - choosing and assembling a variety of bits and pieces to create a unique result or do you prefer to have most of the decisions made for you and work from a kit or a set of detailed instructions. Some people relax by having the creative freedom to "do their own thing" while others enjoy the process much more when they have a firm guide to lead them to the finished project. Would you rather attend a class that taught you techniques that you could use on any project or one that takes you step by step through the creation of a really great piece of art? No right or wrong answer - the whole point is to have your crafting time be enjoyable for you!
