Creating for a Cause

Have you heard of Operation Write Home (OWH)?  It is a wonderful organization that collects blank handmade cards to send to our military overseas for them to send home to their loved ones.  You can read all about it HERE.

Club Scrap (the most wonderful monthly scrapbook kit club in the world) is conducting a fundraiser for OWH by holding their Assembly Line Boot Camp competition.  You can read all about this event on the Club Scrap website HERE.

Our first weekly challenge for this event is to use Metallics on our cards, layouts, and/or projects.  Our creations should also consist of at least 50% Club Scrap products.  Here's the Club Scrap blog post if you want to read the details of the challenge:  Click HERE.

I broke out my (ahem, TWO-year-old) Love Blooms kit for this challenge and put together this adorable Love in a Box project:

Here is what the inside of the box looks like:

Isn't that just adorable???!!!  I used Glimmer Mist in Pink Bubblegum and Indian Corn to spray the collaged paper that covers the box part and for the stamps on the front.  Other metallics are the charms dangling on the front.  There is an accordian-style album that fits inside the box (which I'm not going to show you because mine isn't finished yet) and some valentine cards that also fit inside.  You will get to see those very soon!  Happy Saturday, crafty friends!  Leave me some love in the comments if you're so inclined!


  1. What a stunning box, Toni! Totally yummy!

  2. Love your box, Toni! It makes me wish I had that kit.

  3. Love this Toni! Makes me think I need to dig through my projects because I KNOW some of them have metal on them somewhere. Love the addition you made with the sprays!

  4. Awesome project! Love the embellishments on it.
