July SOTM Blog Hop "Live Out Loud"

I'm so excited......there's only a few more days until convention starts!  This time of the year is so busy, so I made this project a few months ago, just so I could be ready.  This month's featured stamp set is "Live Out Loud"" S1207.  If you are coming here from Katy Taylor's Blog you're on the right path.....and if you get lost along the way go to Helen Onulak's Blog for a full list of hoppers.

For my club's altered project last month we made this cute mini-card box.  The box was found at Micheal's in the $1 bin.  I painted it white and covered it with the Dotty For You paper packet, added some ribbon and blue stickles and its done.   And don't forget about embossing the sentiment "Soar" with white embossing powder, it really makes this project pop.
 The cards are quick and easy.  Cut, score, fold, add the ribbon and sentiment and you're done.
 The box holds six cards/tags and 6 envelopes.
 Other products used are the CTMH Cricut AP cartridge, Spot On Background (retired), white daisy cardstock (Z2163) and Lagoon Ink (Z2195).
For the butterflies' antenna I used black beading wire, cool, isn't it?
Now "Hop" on over to Doreen Guilfoyle's Blog and see her work!
