Welcome to my blog, and the Summer Themed Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Lyn at http://stampndesign.blogspot.com/ you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning at http://craftycardgallery.blogspot.com/. This blog hop is intended to help you in the mood for summer(or for thoese of us in Australia out of the Winter blues)....I know the weather hasn't been all that helpful to many of us, so maybe crafts can help us get in the summer spirit! So sit back, and enjoy the hop.
This is my summer themed project...
A box! But not a normal box, A explosion Box! Take the lid off and this is what you get....
Here are some images of how i decorated the box when it was flat
The frames you see will have pictures added to it at a later stage, but the box is intended for photos of my family spending the day at the beach over summer. Here are some close ups.....
Each cube that was cut(I did three) was then layered and stuck on top of each other, so to see all the other images under the top one you flip it like this....
For this project I used the Fun in the Sun paper collection from Kaisercraft, Bazzill Bling and swiss dots,Quickutz shapes(too many to label!), Rub ons by Portia Craft and Sakura Gelly Roll Pens.
I had so much fun with this project and can't wait to try out some other boxes, the possibilities are endless!
