Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the Month May - gift box

Hello. today I'm sharing another project with the Spellbinders APG die of the Month May.
This time around I didn't make a card as I shared with you in my blog post last week, but I used the dies to make a beautiful gift box.

The box itself is a Goat box pre-cut explosion box.
It was the perfect fit for the dies, I only made it a little shorter.

I die cut all the pieces from light blue cardstock and glued them on the box.

I've decorated the lid with lace, a crochet flower and leaves, a handmade fluffy flower and 
a lace bow with a little charm.

The four sides of the box are also decorated with a small applique and a glittery blue gem.

It turned out a lovely gift box. I hope you like it.

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the month May

Hi and welcome to my blog.
 I'm so excited to share with you my first project with the May die set from 

For this project I've created a feminine card decorated with lace and flowers.

The May die set has 9 templates.

I started by cutting a cream colored 6 x 6" base card. 
Then I die cut the fleur de lis outline from the creme colored cardstock and again from light pink  cardstock with the four corner pieces in it.

I cut a 4x4* creme cardstock square and die cut the outline square from dark pink cardstock.
For the inner square I used the light pink cardstock again.

I decorated my card with a crochet circle (from Allmacraft), a cabochon, two resin roses, pearls, 
gems and a lace bow.

This die set is really lovely and detailed. You can make beautiful cards with it
 but also boxes as I will show you in my blog post next week.

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace die of the Month - Retro type writer

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I'm sharing another card I've made with this month's die from the Spellbinders APG die of the month club.
The previous project was a vintage typewriter card, today's card 
is also retro but more the 50's/60's style.

Becca Feeken's amazing die set, the pop up 3D vignette typewriter has 14 elements. 
You can watch a video by Becca on how to assemble all the pieces here.

My typewriter is mint with white, silver and pink.
I placed the 3D typewriter on black and white checkered paper.

This time I did not used the sentiments that came with the set but I made 
the three sentiments in word using a retro font and printed them out on pink cardstock.

I do like the mint colored typewriter.

Lapbook "field notes"

Hi, today I'm sharing a project I've been working on for the last couple of weeks.
I followed the tutorials by Nik the Booksmith on YouTube on how to make a lapbook. 
Her tutorials are 12 video's, so not a small project. You can find the first one here.

I made my lapbook using Tim Holtz papers, ephemera and lots of other 
items from the new field notes release.
I've taken a lot of pictures and also taped a flip through video which you can watch on my YT channel. It is for sale in my ETSY shop (links below all the photo's).
