3-D Hot Air Balloons.

I made these Hot Air Balloons for the Mulino Elementary School Bazaar Yesterday.
I used the Ariana Papers to make this one. I also used the Cricut and CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and a leaf punch that also embosses, Bakers twine and Liquid Glass.  This time I attached the box to the lid using Velcro dots that I had laying around.

I used Sky Lark Papers to make this one and I added the wood grain paper from Timberline too.  The Bows are from CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  The Butterfly is a Stampin' Up punch and I added some vintage lace and Sparkles.  There are small teal flowers that I punched and added sparkles to the centers then glued them to the balloon where each panel meets at the bottom.  

These were so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless. 

If you would like to take a class to make one, just let me know.   Call or Text 503-708-6889  

You can sign up for all of my classes at

Here are the Anniversary cards that we will be making on March 18th.  

 The flower is from the Love This stamp set.
 This is the Damask embossing folder.
 This card has one of the new embossing folders called Quarter-foil. I inked up the raised side of the folder with Sky ink and then put the cardstock in and ran it through my Big Kick.

 I used Ariana paper to make to make both of these cards.
