Love is in the air ........

Can't believe its almost August but I hope you've all been enjoying some fantastic weather lately.  We've had family visiting so not much time for crafting but I did have a commission to make a pop-up wedding card in a box which I really enjoyed doing and I'm sure the happy couple won't mind me sharing with you.  Here's the card standing up - I love all the layers you can achieve.

and here's a couple of pics where the card is flattened for posting - very clever whoever thought of it!

And while I'm on a romantic theme - here's my latest spreads for the altered book round robin.  This book was entitled Once Upon A Time so I chose a fairy story as my theme.  Here's the first spread,

I asked my hubby which fairy story he thought it was and he said Snow White!  Where did I go wrong????
Anyway, here's the second spread - it did actually click with him this time, think it was the glass slipper.........
Hope you've had some crafting time this month although with the weather being as warm as it has in the North East of England, its been BBQs and beaches for us!  Hugs, Margie x


  1. Love these pop up boxes Margie and I am sure the couple will love it.

    Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x

  2. Pop up cards really are clever but it is all in the decoration and you have decorated your beautifully! It will stand out amongst the other wedding cards!

    I did have a chuckle about your hubby's answer but at least he tried.... love what you have done in the altered book Margie. Big hugs, Anne xx

  3. Fabulous card and book!
