Exploding Box Card

Isn't Spring wonderful?! I love seeing all the flowers blooming, and the grass starting to grow. 

I have felt very inspired by all the flowers lately, and so decided to make a spring card. 

The idea for this card came from Pinterest. The original designer is Susiesmith37. 

I loved what she had done with her card, and so I decided to take my own spin on it. 

I used Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection for this card. I just adore all the spring themed papers!

The red roses were some paper roses I already had on hand, and the butterfly's came from Graphic 45's Old Curiousity Shoppe. 

The teacup I cut using my Cricut Explore and the Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge. 

I patterned out and made the box and lid myself, designing it just big enough for the teacup to fit. 
And here is the box closed. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this inspired you to make your own spring card! -AR

Masculine Birthday Card

So this last week I made a Birthday card for a friend of mine. I used Graphic 45's "A Proper Gentleman"

I loved how it turned out!! I usually make really frilly cards, so doing a masculine one was a bit different for me.

Botanical Tea Tag

So today I got to have my first lazy day in awhile!! It was so nice!!

I finally opened up my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper. I love all the beautiful spring themed paper!


I used the smaller G45 Tags for this tag. I also made a hat pin for an embellishment and fussy cut out a butterfly for some extra detail.

Sorry for the lack of posting here lately!! Trying to get into a new routine is a bit trickier than I had originally thought. 

I was moved over to full time just a few days after starting my new job, which means more money for craft supplies!! Yay!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to have some new projects posted soon!-AR

Almost ready to go :)

So I have spent the last week madly dashing around trying to figure out what to pack and what to stay (I'm moving into a place with very limited space).  It took three large plastic totes, and one bankers box just to get all my scrapbook paper!!!

I have the majority of my crafts supplies packed up, as those are things I cannot live without. Well I could I just don't want too.  

Hopefully once I get all settled in I will be able to resume my crafting. Thanks for stopping by!-AR
