What a wonderful time I had at the Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Birthday Ball this weekend (April 8-9), and I hope you did, too!
The Scrapbooking Queen is Theresa, one of my favorite bloggers. She was the generous hostess for a blog hop among her loyal court in celebration of her
So while the Ball is now over and there's nothing left to do but sweep up the confetti and take out the champagne bottles with the recycling (of course) ... oh, and get some stragglers home safely to tend to their hangovers ... I've decided to leave posted my two projects so you can enjoy.
Feel free to leave comments, but the opportunity for the blog candy has passed and the winner's name has been posted. (Congratulations PAM, read on to the next post.) Don't worry, my loyal followers, there will be more candy to be won this weekend!
Here is the card I made for Queen-T:
For my gift box fit for a Queen, I made a Queen Bee (bird) House. The roof lifts off of this box so I can insert gift items, candy, etc. It's surprisingly sturdy. I ♥ how it turned out:
|I cut this birdhouse using Sure Cuts A Lot to drive my Cricut to electronically cut a file I purchased from www.SVGcuts.com. Rather than decorate it with the bird and leaves that come in the generous, creative file, I instead used leaves and a bee cut using Sizzlit dies, and decorated the leaves with flowers I customized by spraying with Creative Juices' "CardMonkey Glimmer Mist" that I made for the occasion. The roof of the birdhouse was "shingled" using 3/4" punched circles, and the eaves were trimmed with Martha Stewart's double loop punch cut-outs.|
|As this is the last stop on the Queen's Royal|
Birthday Ball blog hop, please carefully disembark
your carriage and head on inside to the Ball to
return to visit the Queen.
Thank you to The Scrapbooking Queen for inviting me to be one of your
