I’m so proud of my nephew, Abe, who is graduating from college today!!! His whole family moved to Roswell, NM for the year to support him- what great parents! He’s worked very hard for this achievement!
Here’s a picture of Abe relaxing with his buddy in the dorm!
I can’t be there, so I’m sending him my favorite card…a CARD IN A BOX!!
Isn’t that owl a hoot?!!! Ha ha ha!
I sent Abe a 3 month subscription of My Paper Pumpkin & this is what he wrote on Facebook: “I just finish my finals and I came home and was just going to go to bed and then I get this Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail from my Auntie
Now I am going to make stuff. It is so great and I am feeling crafty. hahahaaa”
Please ADD YOUR COMMENTS to this post to congratulate Abe on this huge accomplishment!! I’ll send your good wishes on to him!

Yesterday Anne and I held our Step Into Spring Class. I think everyone had lots of fun!
Every box turned out a little differently and they were all beautiful!
Here’s a little crafting chaos! We used tons of punches!!
Thanks so much for everyone who attended!! We had so much fun with you! For those of you who could not attend, I’m sure to have another Card-in-a-Box class soon!!
Finally, I have to mention…today’s the last day of Sale-a-bration, so place your $50 order today to receive a FREE stampin’ item! CLICK HERE TO PLACE AN ORDER! Same thing for the My Paper Pumpkin Promotion! Today is the last day… FREE markers, FREE Card-in-a-Box, and Free Monthly Class!! Don’t miss out!
This Card-in-a-Box might be my favorite so far!
The Birthday Basics DSP is perfect for this! So bright & happy! There are so many images to choose from. Balloons, candles, numbers, party hats…
I decided to make my cake from scratch! Here’s the recipe: Bottom layer 1 3/4 X 1; middle 1 1/4 X 1; top 7/8 X 1. Used my corner rounder for the tops & scallop trim border punch for the frosting on the bottom layer. I just glued them on a 1/2 X 2 1/4 scrap paper. The candles? From the Cupcake Punch!! Caution: Use as little glue as possible to avoid sticky fingers!
If you can guess the punches I used to make the balloon & post the comment on my blog, I’ll send you a card! Hint: I used 2 punches.
This punch comes from Label Love and coordinates with the Artisan Label Punch. To make the contrast in the back, I just punched one in Summer Starfruit, cut it down the middle, & stuck it on.
The banners & party hats are from Sketched Birthday. Actually, I’m planning to make another Birthday Card-in-a-Box using more from that set!

My daughters and I have many fond memories of having tea together.
Here’s my daughter, Jenny, at tea when we were visiting York.
And here’s Malia, adding a little tea to her cup of milk & honey.
My friend, Julie, wanted me to make a Card-in-a-Box with a “Tea” theme. Here’s what I came up with:
I tend to load up these boxes with as many images as I can. See the doily behind the big tea cup?
These stamp sets are retired (Tea Shoppe & Morning Cup), but I couldn’t resist using them!
l’ll be having a Card-in-a-Box GIVE AWAY in the next day or so! Stay tuned for details!

class this Sunday, March 30! I’d love to have you there!
Another card in a box to share with you today! I decided to take my card from yesterday a step further…
It started with that big sun you see in the back and “You make me happy…”.
Added a few birds, clouds, some bread & jam…
And I used a new stamp set, Starburst Sayings, and the framelits for the little spirals!
Stamps: See Ya Later, Spread the Joy, Starburst Sayings, Yippee Skippee
Colors: Calypso Coral, Gumball Green, Pool Party, Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight
