Drop Spine Box for Memories Expo & Mid Michigan Swarm Class

Here are some pics of how I decorated my drop spine box. I will be teaching the drop spine box at Mid-Michigan Swarm(Crop) and Memoies Expo Columbus 2011. This is how the box will look when we are done in the class. It is a blank canvas for any embellishing your heart desires.

I used POPs, and tags from Club Scrap's Serengeti collection. I used the Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge to cut the flowers and multiple Cuttlebug folders to give the flowers some texture. Inked edges in Club Scrap Hybrid Ink in Leaf, Moss and Earth. Brads and metal embellishments from seveal Club Scrap embellishment packs. Not sure where the clear "bubble" is from, but i attached it with Club Scrap Glue because it dries clear, its not completely dry in the picture.

I used lots of pop dots to give the flowers "levels".
Had to add this pic of my kitty trying to get into the pics :)

Mid Michigan Swarm Swaps

For more information about the Swarm/Crop go to

Here are my calling cards for the crop:
Finished size is 3"x3"

First I printed the light pink paper with polka dots on my Cricut Imagine.

All papers/cardstock are from Club Scrap Jubilee collection except the white that I printed on is Club Scrap Basics White.

Flowers and leaf are cut from Mother's Day Bouquet.

Midnight blue and White vellum are embossed with Cuttlebug weathered stripes and bubbles.

Used Cuttin Up font for the lettering, welded with the Gypsy, cut in White fuzzy vinyl from Silouhette. Brads are from my stash.

Stickles in lime green on the leaf and Distressed Stickles in worn lipstick on the flower petals
