Fun Fold Friday

So it is finally Friday!  This week was killer and next week is already starting--lol!  Off to Vegas for a trade show next week so I have been busy making projects for next week.

Today is the first Fun Fold Friday and to kick it off I went back to my videos and found one of my most popular projects the exploding box.  I left all the embellishments off so you can see the base of the box.

In the coming weeks I will share cards, scrapbook layout out elements, and of course more boxes.  I will usually show a finished item and then do a generic how to video so you can see how to put it together with out having to fight a ton of embellishments or patterned paper.

Alright-last day to leave comments for the CTMH rock the block package for this week.  I am caught up on all the comments for the Imagine so keep them coming.

Tonight is also a stamp release for Pink By Design--make sure to stop by the ustream tonight--all the details are on the website--just click here

Be my Valentine Card

Hope you all are having a great day--I have a pretty quick and easy card to share to day.  I had some scraps of K&Company paper and I simply hate to waste so I stated playing around and this is what I came up with.
It is simply an A2 card.  The stamp is from SU called Sweet Cake.  I heat embossed it and blotted the stamp before I put it to paper to give it a worn and tattered look.  Once the heating was done I took a Cotton Candy CTMH marker and colored over the distressed areas and the icing of the cupcake.  I stamped in HollyHock Red CTMH ink the sentiment from the same set.  A little bit of black gorssgrain ribbon and done. Simple right!?!?

Two more things--
I only have a couple of spots left in the Close to My Heart Club.  I have a lot planned and some great benifits--Let me know if you are needing more information casue I would like to get the order in next week and waiting to see if anyone is wanting to join the fun!

Secondly make sure to leave those comments on each post--I have spent all evening checking the blogs and posts to make sure you get your right amounts of entries--wow is it a lot of work!  There will be 6 posts this week--5 here on my blog and on at from Tuesday about whoppers.  While you are over at PBD make sure you check out some of the other projects becasue the design team is UBER Talented!

Alright Fridays I have a special treat in store--Fun Fold Fridays!  I will be sharing a fun fold card, box, scrapbook element every Friday with measurements and directions.
We will see you back here Friday and make sure to spread the word about the Imagine giveaway.
Make it a great one
