Okay, now just admit it…anything called an explosion box must mean fun, right?! Â Right! Â Well, assuming there isn’t a bomb or anything.
Now for anÂ explanation. Â It is basically a mini-scrapbook that folds up into a box that can be put on a shelf and still look really cute! Â I first saw these demonstrated at Stampin’ Extravaganza last year so when the chance came up to learn how to make them in class, I had to take it! Â We made one in class and I came home and made another four over that weekend!!
They are just so adorable and getting Simply Scrappin’ kits from Stampin’ Up make the coordination of the boxes very easy. Â These kits come with matching cardstock, designer paper, borders and other designs. Â This post is going to contain pictures of all the boxes I made because I love them so much! Â I hope you like them just as much as I do!! Â 🙂 Â All that’s left is to find the perfect pictures for them, cut them to size and glue them on down.
Here is the complete set! Â I have two different sizes! Â The small ones are just too cute and perfect for pictures of kids going to school!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and fantastic New Years!
I haven’t had a whole lot to share over the past couple of months. Â I went from my crazy daily knitting to cross-stitching again. Â I must say that it’s been a complete change of pace and a little nice to do something that I wasn’t obligated to do or needed to for customers. Â As much as I love my little business and appreciate everyone who buys my cards and scarves, it’s sometimes nice to take a bit of a break. Â It’s a been a good few months and I’ve completed a project that’s been on my to-do list for years! Â The downside is that I’m not sure whether people really want to see work in progress pictures of a design they wouldn’t know even when complete! Â :)\
To explain, the cross-stitch that I just completed was one for my video-game loving husband. Â The design was of Samus, a character from one of his favourite games, Super Metroid. Â Here it is!
We haven’t managed to get it cleaned, ironed or framed yet but…baby steps!! Â I love how the colours just seem to pop off the black fabric. Â It was a great way to get back into things. Â Let’s see what will come up next!
