Birthday Boy

First things first. Sorry about the crappy quality of the photo. I'll fix it one day, but right now it's a rainy day and I'm feeling the rainy day blues.

When Sebastian's Birthday came around, I forgot to get party hats. I scoured my parents house and found some old Dora the Explorer ones from Anberlin's first Birthday. Being the nifty, thrifty crafter that I am, I pulled out my DCWV Retro Stack and pulled out what I felt was an appropriate color/theme for my little boy. And secretly in my mind I planned to use the same papers in the scrapbook layouts later. :)

Exploding Scrapbook Box

I've finally started my own Etsy site! I'm slowly adding items to it. One of the things I'd like to have sucessful sales in are my exploding/scrapbook in a box. They're ultra cute and make awesome gifts. I've had a bunch of people who aren't too familiar with these ask me what they're supposed to do with them. So I completed one last night, pictures and all, as a basic guide.

Each tag on the inner layer pulls out. I attached a photo on each and did some quick journaling on the back.

I left stamped small areas for journaling.

Lot of embellishments to help your photos pop.

Another example of a journaling stamp. If you don't care for these, you can always cover it up with another photo.

Please visit my site. I will be adding more items very soon!!
