I'm so excited, I just bought a new cartridge for my wee little Cricut machine, the Sweet Tooth Boxes. I think I am really going to love this one. This morning I made a little treasure chest, not for any particular reason, just to try out the new cartridge. There are 10 different boxes to cut out and decorate for gifts of all kinds. So, here is my little treasure chest. I will change a few things like the latch and the lock on the front, the one on the cartridge is just to blah for me. I"m also putting up pics of some of the Valentine Heart Boxes I did for friends and family. The steampunk heart box was done by my daughter Becca, I liked it so much I just had to post it. More to come as I play with my new toy.
|This is the front of the chest, after getting it together I decided I really need to make my own latch and key hole, I don't like this one at all.|
|This is the chest open and you can see the latch and lock, it is very flimsy and I'm sure I can come up with something better. I used my spellbinders die cut to cut out the embellishments and stained it using Tim Holtz distress ink.|
|The bottom edge is a Jolee's Boutique border from Hobby Lobby and the upper edging is Tattered Time edge punched with an EK Success scallop punch.|

This is my first post for the New Year 2013. My plan is to post more often this year and keep sharing my creations. I went to a Stamping Up card class this last weekend and here are the cards we had fun making. Class is such a blast! We cut, chat and laugh our heads off! I have a couple more ideas to put together and will be posting them soon. See ya then!
|This is my first Gate Fold card. I love how the hearts intertwine and the silver paint on the embossed design is one trick I will use again.|
|I think this is my favorite card from class that day. Stamping Up had this set of teeny tiny punches and stamps and I just had to have them. I can see these popping up on lots of my cards in the future.|
|This is my favorite Valentine this year. Love everything about it!|
|This looks like a simple little card to make but figuring out how to die cut all the hearts in colors and size and then overlapping them and interlocking them was a bit of a puzzle for this old lady!|
