H2H Challenge: ABC

Okay all you moms out there...who's ready for school to start?

I suppose I'm lucky in that our school goes year round and we have very short Summer vacations...I don't have to deal with a lot of "I'm bored, what can I do" whines from the boys.

Plus, who wants to be outside during Summer in Tucson? Smiley from
So what does this talk of school have to do with this week's H2H Challenge? Not much. Just the name ABC reminds me of it...and the fact that school starts here in one week!

So what is an ABC Challenge, you ask? Anything But a Card! And here is a little non-card craft I created featuring my three boys:

Stamps: CTMH Love You Forever
Inks: CTMH Buttercup, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue, Grey Wool
Papers: CTMH Caboodle Reflections Kit

I used an acrylic photo cube from Target to create this cute way to embarrass my boys with their baby pictures.

It is made up of 6 basic pieces:

  • four side panels (4 x 5.5 inches, scored at 2.75) which I've attached together on the back to make one long piece
  • two top/bottom panels (4 x 4 inches)
Embellish them as you like!

This is the top and bottom panel.

Panel 1

Panel 2 with Bio-Comp's baby picture...

Panel 3 with Loquacious's baby picture...

Panel 4 with Knock-Out's baby picture.

When you get them embellished, put the bottom panel in bottom part of the cube first, facing up. Then the longer panels will fit accordian style into the cube piece. Place the top panel on top and close it with the top piece of the cube.

I did add a couple of dabs of Liquid Glass to make sure it held together. The boys were picking it up to look at it and the top and bottom cube pieces kept coming apart. Liquid Glass to the rescue!

Be sure to stop by the other DT members' blogs and see all the great ABC creations they've come up with!
