Rockin' Ink Stars Blog Hop - "Spring has Sprung"

Thanks for joining the Rockin' Ink Stars Team for our "Spring Themed" Blog Hop! This month we will be showcasing all things Spring! The hop is a circle, so just keep hopping along following the included links and you will visit all the great blogs of the talented Rockin' Ink Star members. If you have come here from Jennifer's Blog, you are on the right track. I'm sure you enjoyed her post! After you have taken a look at my project, find the link below to get to the next artist on the list....

I wish I could take credit for this idea...but when life is crazy, there's no shame in getting inspiration from others.  This is a My Creations™ Card Box originally designed by Lisa Stenz.  I've made this box more times than I can count because so easy and so beautiful and a great, inexpensive gift for just about any occasion.  Just change the paper and accessories you are using and you have a whole new look and feel.  Here's I've used our gorgeous Skylark paper pack and coordinating accessories...Skylark Compliments, Skylark Assortment, and Slate Striped Twist Ties.

Inside the box, you get 12 - 3x3 gift cards and envelopes and a matching pen.  (Yes, there are dividers in the box made with coordinating cardstock to give it that professional stationary set look.) The stamp set I used is B1399 Crafted with Love and yes, the frames (and the word NOTES on the lid) was cut using our Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection. I LOVE how many of our stamp sets are compatible with our Cricut® Collections.  And don't forget to "pop" the sentiment with a bit of 3-D Foam tape. (use the Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors to avoid getting your scissors gunked up with sticky adhesive)

Hope you enjoyed this project.  Try it with a different paper pack and have fun coming up with your own unique creation.  

Now head on over to Marianne's Blog and see what crafty creation she has come up with....
