Good Evening Family, Friends, and Fellow Crafters!

Sorry for the late post, especially since this project was finished 2 days ago.  In keeping with my theme to try new things this month, I did my first Waterfall Card.  I know this style card is old to some of you, but it made my to do list last year, and I never got around to it.  This project also doubles as an entry over at Celebrate the Occasion, this week.



Also this week, I tackled another exploding box.  These are really addictive.  This one doubles as a card and mini album to celebrate my friend, Karen's birthday.  I stayed up to some wild hour Saturday morning until I found a way to get this cake slice to stand up.  I can't even tell you where I found the stand and how many times I cut and resized it, but I was so pysched when it was done, that I stayed up another 40 minutes watching tv, to calm my excitement.  LOL! 

  • I cut the stand using chipboard, then covered with paper.
  • The bottom base and cake plate were cut with regular paper.
  • I then took some Martha Stewart's decoupage sealer and brushed some on the bottom on the stand then adhered it to the base. Hold it place for a minute and tadaa!
  •  this paper is from a K & Co paper stack.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!!
