Sending You Happy Little Thoughts

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone and Happy Wednesday! 
I hope you are having a great week so far! Wow, the weather has finally been pretty nice here the past few days and suppose to hit the mid 70's by the weekend :)  Sounds perfect for the Memorial Day weekend! So, what are all my crafty friends up to this weekend???
We have a lot planned for the weekend~a little work around the yard, a get together with some friends on Sunday and a family BBQ on Monday :) we hope to squeeze a little time to work on our remodeling of bathroom, sauna area to! Yikes, I'm tired already, lol!

I have seen a lot of these box cards lately and just had to make one and share it with you today.  I found this file at the Silhouette store and cut it on my Cameo. I layered a panel on each flap which I included a small border using a Martha Stewart punch followed by a pattern piece. I'm not sure if you can see but I ran those pieces and a few others through the Zutter DIA that I was so enabled by Lisa to get.
 I can't wait to use it more :)
The flowers are cut at 2 1/4 and 3 1/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge along with the leaves at 1/2". I also use My Craft Spots Rolled Roses Flower metal die for some of the flowers as well. I added small little skittles to the center of the flowers from my friend,  Carri . The pattern papers I used are from EP~Sweet Girl Lori Whitlock collection.
The little bumble bee's are cut at 1 1/2 from the Create A Critter cartridge~there so cute! I stamped the sentiments using My Craft Spot's Butterfly Kisses stamp set. There are so many fun sentiments on this stamp set~love it!
If you haven't tried one of the box cards....you should!
They are so much fun~you will be hooked! If you don't have a cameo, that's okay.......there are a lot of tutorial for the instructions to make one without a cutting machine :)
 Come on, give it a try!

  35. I thought I had commented on this gorgeous creation of yours, but didn't see it. Maybe it was on facebook? Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE this! I still have not tried one of these cute little box cards. I've seen so many of them, but I don't know that I have seen one filled with the flowers like yours. This is just totally darling, the flowers look so pretty and the bees are such a fun touch. This is cute as can be my friend!

  36. FABULOUS card box. I downloaded one from Silhouette yesterday, but how do you get all your flowers to close (or don't you)? They are absolutely gorgeous and the colors are perfect for this summer weather.

    1. Hi Georgiana,
      Thanks for the sweet comment. The box closes but very carefully and it is bulky so I wouldn't mail it out... I hand delivering this to a friend. If you did it with the flatter flower dies instead of the rolled flower dies it would close perfectly. Have fun! Once you make one, you will be hooked :)
