Everything inside our box this month!

April had the “You’re My Anchor” theme – how adorable, right? I love everything nautical, so this really got me excited!

The information card lists the link to the video detailing the project for the month – if you are a new crafter, the video is sure to make life easier!

The information card also lists all the items included in your kit for the month, so you know exactly how many cards or boxes you can make right away. 🙂

Along with that, you also get a detailed picture booklet with step-by-step instructions. Super helpful and I always appreciate when instructions are crystal-clear. 🙂

Let’s check out how my cards turned out this month. 🙂

As always, starting off with stamping all the sentiments and the designs so they are all ready to use when we get to that step.

This month we had literally endless options to make our cards based on our own preferences and style. So you could mix and match various colors of cards along with sentiments and embellishments. Basically, time to unleash your creativity 😉

Using the stamping block, I stamped all the pictures and the sentiments on the provided tags.

Following the instructions, I used the provided twine to create a design along the life ring and adhered it to my choice of card.

Next, it was time to make the box (which I thought was super neat).

Love how quickly the box was ready (thanks to amazing instructions and the how-to video).

It was time to add the case on top, again everything pretty much comes pre-made for the most part, so it’s just a matter of putting it together based on your preferences or sense of style.

Tada, how gorgeous does this box look? Wrapped with the twine around and the anchor tags on it. 🙂

More Designs!

I ended up creating some more different designs with other heartfelt messages and embellishments on top.

Everything I was able to make from this month’s kit, and really the possibilities are endless since you get 20 cards with 20 envelopes.


What a fun nautical themed month! This month was not just about creating cards, which I am so glad about.  The boxes with embellishments certainly added a special oomph to the finished craft. Seriously, guys, this would make such a perfect Mother’s Day Gift, I know my mom would love it! Don’t forget to SAVEFIFTY0418 to get 50% off your first two months!
