Card in a Box

Hello, it's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing my project for this month. I love to search the web for ideas when I am stuck on what to do. I have been seeing these cards in a box and think they are adorable. I thought I would try my hand at making one. A friend from work is leaving to start another job, so I thought it would be cute to make this for her along with a gift. The box itself is pretty easy, it's the decorating the layers that is was a little tricky for me. For the base, I used a piece of green card stock from my stash. I used Stampin' Up products for the designer paper, the flower stamps, the sentiments and the rhinestones. The little branches are from a Martha Stewart's punch and the leaves are a die and stamp set called The Sweet Life from Paper Trey Ink. The inks I used are Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze. I think it came out cute but I need to practice layering.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you Sheila for having me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

What Happened?

I am so very upset. I was trying to change the look of my blog and now it is all messed up. I read that Blogger has changed and no longer offers the minima template. My followers have disappeared. I don't understand about html's and such but I am very upset that my blog looks out of sorts. Please bare with me while I try to look into fixing it.

Thank you all.

I just wanted to post these cute tags that I made using the tag die from My Creative Time for me and that sweet adorable stamp from Stampin' Up. I added ribbon and linen thread to the top of the tag. I used Stampin' Up's punches for the circle and the scallop circle. I added a rhinestone to the bunny's tail. I got this idea from Angie at Chic N' Scratch. I stamped the image with the same colors as the tag and popped it up with dimensionals. The card stock is from a paper pack that I purchased at Hobby Lobby called Momenta, love the colors.

Happy Easter

Hello, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing my project with you this month. As always, thank you Sheila for having me. I decided even though it is a little early, I decided to make an Easter card. Happy Spring to you all. Hopefully, we will not be getting anymore snow.

I used Kraft card stock as the card, which is an A2 size. All the dies and stamps are from Emma. Aren't they so adorable. Look at the details on the dies, the stitching is so sweet. I cut the eggs out on the card with my cuttlebug and then used the stamps and stamped inside of them. I used dimensionals on the bunny, chick, basket and eggs. I added a bow to the basket.

That's my project for today. I'm sorry it is short, but my husband just had Rotator Cuff (shoulder) surgery yesterday, so I am playing nurse :)

Thank you for stopping by. Your comments are very much appreciated.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

An altered Valentine's Day mail box

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here with my project for the month. I know Valentines' Day is over but I wanted to share with you what I made for my mother and sister. I purchased 3 cute metal mail boxes at Target for $1.00 each. I bought 2 pink ones and 1 red one. I still have to decorate the red one for myself.

This is it before decorating it.

I took decorative paper and adhered it to the base. The size of that is 4" x 12". For the covers, I just traced them on the paper and cut them out and adhered them. Then just used ribbons and some embellishments, a purple glittery self adhesive heart, some lace and gems, some tulle and brads. I think they came out really cute and my mother and sister loved them.

To have something to put inside of the mail boxes, I thought of dye cutting small envelopes with little notes in each one, but then decided to just make little bags. I put Valentine's Day Hershey kisses in each bag, stapled them closed and added a paper bow which is a die from Emma. I added a pearl in the middle of each one.

So that is my project for this month. Thank you Sheila for having me and Thank you all for stopping by.

Valentine Box

Hi Everyone,

It's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room to share my project this month. Thank you to Sheila for having me. I haven't had too much time to craft lately :( I decided to make this cute easy box that I saw from Angie from My Chic N' Scratch. She makes a lot of boxes and bags and they are very easy and come out so cute. The best thing is, you can make them and decorate them to make them your own.

For this box, you start out with a piece of card stock that measures 9" x 5 1/2", then you score at 1", 2 1/2", 6 1/2" and 8".

Then you cut the tabs on the score lines as shown.

These two sides you just cut up to the score lines but don't cut them off.

Then put adhesive as shown. I used score tape. You can use the red sticky tape or any good adhesive.
Then fold it up as shown. You can check out Angie's video for more details.

This will be the back of the box. You cut another piece of card stock to 5 1/2" x 4", round the top corners.

This piece will go over the exposed adhesive. For the designer paper, I used The Crush Collection from Bo Bunny. For the front of the box, the paper is cut 3 3/4" x 2 15/16". The top part is cut at 4" x 3 1/2". I used heart dies and cut three different sizes out and used dimensionals for each one to pop them up. Then you can put either cards or candy in a bag. The possibilities are endless for this box.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

Our Christmas Tree

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share something with you this month. I first have to apologize to Sheila and to you all because I picked up a second job working nights to make extra money and I have had no time at all to craft, as you can see from my blog. I just have enough time to come home from my day job, have a quick bite to eat, change and off I go. So please forgive me for not having a handmade project for you today.

I decided I would take a picture of our tree and post it for all to see. We used to have real trees for years, I loved the smell. Then we purchased a fake tree and used that for a couple of years, then last year my husband said why don't we just get a little table top tree. I really wasn't crazy about it because I liked the big trees, but when we bought it and decorated it, I thought it was so cute. I am still using ornaments from when my son was little and ornaments that we've gotten over the years. I really do like it and I'm thinking next year I will decorate it differently. Maybe, with just balls and ribbon. Something really pretty and more adult like, since my son is an adult now :) We will see.

Thank you so much for understanding. I didn't want to not post anything, so I hope this is ok :) I do have cute things that I want to make for next month. So, I will give myself plenty of time to get them done. Thanks Sheila :)
