Midweek Magnolias - #145 Anything but a Card


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

The Midweek Magnolias are back with a new challenge. This fortnight our theme is…

“Anything but a Card”

Join us for the challenge following the theme and our rules and you could have a chance to win a surprise from Magnolia Sweden.


For this challenge, I made my very first explosion box. A word of caution...this post is photo heavy.

I’ve always wanted to create an explosion box so I did a bit of searching on Google and Pinterest for inspiration and I found loads of gorgeous boxes. I wanted to be original so I decided to look through my stash of Magnolia dies, of which I have hundreds mind you, to create a unique project.


My box top features “Tilda with Armful of Flowers” from the Seaside collection. All of the designer papers I used for the project are Maja Designs, Summer Crush collection paired with Bazzill cardstock.


Here is the box open. I created a house warming box using my Magnolia Big House, Fence and Tree DooHickey dies. I cut the big house twice and glued them together to make a large 3D House. I used my EK scallop border punch to create my roof shingles. Then I cut the fence twice and shortened it for a smaller scale, attached them together and made a gate. I also cut the trees twice and put a short headpin wire between the trunk and tree for durability then hot glued it to the box.


I also colored Bee Tilda from the Spring Fever collection and Sunbathe Tilda from the Seaside collection.


Here’s a close up of Bee Tilda.


And a close up of Sunbathe Tilda.


Here is a close up of my envelope die cut from the Magnolia Vintage Box Kit. The envelope has a magnet closure with “Home Sweet Home” sentiment on the outside. I also cut a Tim Holtz House border for the bottom of the box flap.


The envelope opens to “Congrats on your new home” sentiment on the inside. 


This flap has some Magnolia Key die cuts.


Here is a close up of the House. I had lots of fun creating this project.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. Have a great week.

Magnolia-licious - Summer Blog Hop


Hello Magnolia, Fans!

Today we are hosting a Summer Blog Hop with 2 chances to win $20 shopping dollars from Magnolia-licious.

If you arrived here from Katie's blog then you are on the right hop path. If you need to start from the beginning go to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog here.


For my project, I created a summer beach themed photo frame featuring “Bikini Tilda” from the Sea Breeze collection. I created my frame with multi layers of thick chipboard then covered it with Maja Designs pattern paper. I found lots of shells, fish net, sand and mini rope at Michaels to create the beach elements of my frame.


I fussy cut Tilda out along with a small piece of canvas fabric for a simple beach towel. My palm tree is a layered die cut from La-La-Land Crafts. I also put a small bit of sand in a Tim Holtz mini vial for a tiny message in a bottle. To finish it off I put a photo of a trip that hubby and I took to the British Virgin Islands, Bitter End Yacht Club. What a fabulous place!


Here is a close up of Tilda colored with Copics.

July Mini Magnolia Challenge


Happy Hump Day, Friends!

It’s my turn to share a Mini Magnolia card for Magnolia-licious' July Mini Magnolia Challenge inspiration.

Diana has a huge collection of Mini Magnolia stamps in the store


My card today features “Tilda with Cherry Ice” and “Time for Ice Cream” from the Sea Breeze collection. My designer papers are from Doodlebug Sun Kissed collection paired with Bazzill cardstock. I used my Lawn Fawn stitched dies for my frame and DP panels.

I found the cutest ice cream cone at Silhouette for my ice cream cone die cut. The “Summer” word die cut is also from Silhouette and my sun border is a La-La-Land Club Kit die. With the flowers, vintage seam binding on the Doodlebug tag it all ties together for a colorful summer card.


Here’s a close up of Tilda and the Ice Cream stand colored with Copics.


I hope you join in for the challenge this month. There is still plenty of time to get your “MINI ON!” LOL

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
