#166 Explosions Everywhere Blog Hop
Hi everyone welcome to the Explosions everywhere blog hop hosted by ERIKA and ZENI if you just arrived here from Gaby's blog then you are in the right spot. This blog hop is all about exploding boxes that can be a mini album or a gift box! I was super excited when they asked me to join because I have been wanting to make one of these for ages LOL! Here's a link on the tutorial I used to make this album HERE.
For my exploding box I decided to make a mini album to showcase some of our pictures from our camping trip which was actually last weekend! I know it's a big miracle that I actually got my pictures printed out that were so recent.... BTW Walgreen's is having a sale right now all 4x6 photos are only .9 cents!!
Anyways, this was our first time ever bringing our son camping it was a short 1 night stay at a campsite close by it was a trial run to see how he would do and he passed the test, maybe next time we camp we will try 2 nights!
Now onto my album..... All cuts were from Campin' Critters Cricut cart I was so proud of myself for using 9 cuts... yep 9! The paper stack I used was from a 2009 DCWV release called "The Green Stack" 70% recycled paper. The face stamps I used were from Peachy Keen Stamps called BIRD FACES AND MORE which I think was a great price and you can mix and match the face pieces, you will see below I used these for a bear, an owl and a duck. The smore face was from PKS Everyday Paper Dolls.
View looking in from above.
1st layer, each section is 3.5x2.5 inches
Also 1st layer. I stamped all faces with PKS Bird Faces and More, and Smore face is from PKS Everyday Paper Dolls. I chalked the smore marshmallow with black chalk to make it look like a real cooked marshmallow.
2nd layer, each piece is 3.5x3 inches. These signs say "Camp Sweet Camp" and "Notice Bug Spray Required".
Also 2nd layer here these signs say "Happy camper" and "Love to Camp"
I placed an Action Wobble underneath the tent. This tent isa about 3x3 inches and was pretty easy to make. This was my very first time making a 3D pop up item from a Cricut cart and I love the way it came out and so does my son! He keeps asking me to go camping and pointing out where we slept in the tent it's so cute!
Blog Candy!! I am giving away this set of epoxy stickers from Me and My Big Ideas to one lucky follower, just leave me a comment and I will announce a winner on Wed. July 6th.
