I used the 3-D box from the Artist on page 69 and I cut it at 3 1/2"
Products that I used:

Spring / Summer 2014 CTMH Blog Boosters New Product Blog Hop

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...This is my first blog hop so I hope I can inspire you.  You should really enjoy this blog hop we have so many very talented CTMH Consultants out there
I just love this new Idea Book.  I think it is the BEST ONE EVER!  I had a hard time choosing what to start with but I picked the My Creations Journaling Cards Box Z1953.  It is on page 129 and retails for only $5.95.  You can use it for so many things.  I am using it to hold my Picture My Life Skylark Scrapbooking Program cards Z1947 they are on page 69 and retail for $24.95.  What a great program that is you will get 44- 4x6 cards (2 each of 22 designs), 78- 3x4 cards (3 each of 26 designs), 1- 12"x12" designed Cover Sheet, and 10- 12"x12" Memory Protectors (various designs, not shown).
Picture My Life Skylark Z1947

Here is the Box all decorated.  I used the Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon Z1929 on the Tag that I cut out from the same page that I cut the bird out of and the word Believe, the dragon fly and the postmark too.

Here is the box with all the Picture My Life cards in it.  I love the Picture My Life program and I am sure you will too.  I will have lots more about this coming up so keep checking back.  I cut the bird out from another piece of the Skylark B&T paper and put some 3-D Foam tape on it so It won't be in the way when the box is closed
I did not do much to the back of it but here it is anyway.  This paper is so soft and beautiful.  I love all the colors in it.

The Sweet Leaf Ribbon is not available anymore but I am using up my stash.  That is my New's Resolution.  Consume it Do NOT Hoard it!

What a fun project this was and what a great gift it would make for a friend.  You could also fill the box with a set of cards and envelopes you had made.  How cute would that be?

Have fun on the rest of the hop.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  I love the feedback!

My Desk Calendar for 2014

I have been wanting to make an easel card calendar and I knew I had to make one now.  I do a calendar every year but they are usually smaller.  You can see last years calendar here.   So here is my take on it.  I used the Laughing Lola paper X7170B.  I printed a calendar that was on my computer.  The flowers were from the Art Philosophy cartridge Z1686. The stamp set is Horray Bouquet D1491 and you can see what else I have made with this stamp set here
You can change out the photos and the calendar as you like.  The calendar is just one that was on my computer but you can download them off the internet for free if you do a search for them.

I had made a fall wreath that just kept jumping off my wall.  It broke so may times that I could not repair it any more.  So now I use all the flowers and leaves on different projects.  I guess it never wanted to be a wall flower for one.  It wanted to be used and shared with many.  You can read all about my wreath here

The brads, photo clip, and ribbon are from my stash.  I love it when I get to use my stash.

Be sure to check out the while supplies last section here to see the great deals.
