Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 2: Street Lace Friendship Cube


Guess what today is....
My 29th birthday!!! 
One more year to "be in my twenties." I am the youngest chick in my group of best friends so I haven't really had a hard time getting older! I feel so lucky to be where I am in life at the young age of 29!! Wondering what my hubby has planned for the day. Big perk for being born on Veterans Day and being married to a banker...he always gets my birthday off of work!!

So are you ready for Week 2 of the Sizzix Blog Hop??

So for our 2nd project, I had to use the Twist Cub-3D. I was a little nervous to put the die together, but it was surprisingly pretty easy!!! I love how it folds down flat to fit inside a card and with a quick twist, it pops right up!! I used the new Street Lace Stack to make the cube and a matching card. I think my friend will love the pictures of us on it :)




Products used:
DCWV Black Cardstock
May Arts Ribbon
Misc. Rhinestones & Buttons

And just for stopping by the blog today....I want to give away a

  5. Happy Birthday!! I have a friend that also celebrates today and I know that it being a holiday is a perk. I hope you have a great time today!!
    Turning 29 put me in panic mode (because like you said, last year of my 20s) but then again every bday sends me into panic mode (lol). I spent the day with family and friends enjoying my mothers home cooked food. She still spoils me with my bday meals.
    Btw, super cute!!! project!
    Thanks

  11. Happy Birthday to you, Erin! And Happy Birthday to me, too! OK, so it's not my birthday today, but it feels like it with all these amazingly creative projects made with a die that I designed. I love your cube so much! The papers are stunning and the pictures are fun, and you are one awesome designer! I could gush all day, but I especially love the things sticking out from the cube that are revealed when it twists open. Love that!

  12. WOW you want me to remember 29 that was a good 8 years ago. I was a Girl Scout Leader and loved doing all kinds of different crafts with my little girls and of corse camping. Most of the time it was their first camping trip for them it was so exciting to help them love the experience!

  20. Happy 29th Birthday! It is kind of hard to remember... Its been 9 years since I was 29! I imagine I spent some quality time with my little boys! I remember letting them decorate the top of a cake for me when I was 28...too much sprinkles, frosting, color... Did not do that again! Hope you have a fabulous birthday!

  27. I am not 29 yet...(3 more years) but I am hoping I will have a child by then, and with our military lifestyle, who knows where we will be or what we will be doing!! I am in love with Street Lace! LOVE. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy Birthday! I love the color combo you used on this project!

    As for being 29...I am about to turn 41. I remember when I turned 29 I was very upset that 30 was so close, yet looking back, it's nothing compared to being 39, facing 40. But, when you think about it, you are starting to live your 30th year today. Your birthday age signifies that you've completed your 29th year. A mind bender, no? I mean, when we turn one, we've already been alive for a year.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Birthday to you!!

    I'm only 31, so it wasn't too long ago that I was 29!! It was the best year as I became a mommy to my wonderful son Nicholas!!

  37. 29 was a rough year for me, I will always remember losing my Grandmother and my Mother (3 days after my Grandmother). Really makes scrapbooking for my children important.

    So have a happy!!! It's supposed to be a great year ahead for Scorpions.

  48. 29 is only 5 months away for me. The thought doesn't scare me too much since my husband will be 30 the month before. It's so fun to tease him about how "old" he is. Especially since he is pretty gray already. He's such a good sport.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh and I'm a subcriber. Which reminds me of that Destiny's Child (I think) song call Survivor.

  52. I will always remember my 29th birthday. I found out I was pregnant with our 1st child 4 days after. I spent most of my 29th year pregnant. I had my first son on Oct. 21, 2009. I turned 30 in February of this year. I am excited to see what the next few years hold :).

    ReplyDelete
  53. 29 was a perfect perfect year for me. My darling son Nicholas was just 6 months old and it was right around my birthday that I decided not to return to work. It was and still is the best decision I've ever made.

  70. Beautiful! Love your color combo. Happy Birthday! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  71. That cube is beautiful!! Happy Birthday!! I remember telling a friend when I turned 29 that I might as well be turning 30 now since everyone in their 30s who tries to lie about their age picks the age 29, so people might assume I'm lying anyway! lol!

    ReplyDelete
  72. At the age of 29, I remember being so happy with my life...loving my hubby, baby boy and job and feeling that the whole world was my oyster!

    ReplyDelete
  73. i am currently 29 - and it was a hard one for me!!! ha ha! but i have a beautiful 2 year old and a perfect husband, so what's so bad about that?? :)

    happy birthday!!!

  74. Being that I am now 65, it is hard to remember 29. I think that I was dreading turning 30. Wouldn't I like to go back there now--if just for a little while? I am a follower and love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What was I doing at 29, well now, since I just turned 55 this past Sunday, 29 was a while ago. That year wasn't one of the best of my life, I had planned to be married and have my kids by the time I was 30 and niether of them were happening. Thus 29 and 30 were not great for me. But all that had happened before I turned 40 and now here I am at 55 and just have to wait for grandkids. Not for a little while though LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I remember 29 very well..I had a hard time grasping 29. I'm surely an adult now, but without the life experiences of an adult! Part of it was I got married at 29, 3 weeks before my 30th birthday. Now turning 39 in 10 days I feel more comfortable in my shoes..

  91. Love the colors in the Street Lace Stack. They look great on the Pop up Box. I agree with you about putting the box together. It looked like it would be hard to do but Karen's instructions show how easy it is! It was a fun project to put together.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Wow 29 seemed like forever ago although it's only been a few years. The things that sticks out the most to me was that was about the time I started scrapbooking. I had started in recipe swaps with my mom & now I try any crafty/scrappy thing I can. The box is really cute and the paper & colors look so great together. Love the Street Lace stack.

    ReplyDelete
  93. i'm only 25, so when i'm 29 i hope to have a full-time job while all the kids would be in school. love your stacks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. When I was 29 I had not started scrapbooking yet. That would come about 2 to 3 years later.

    ReplyDelete
  95. At 29 I had been married for 2 years and just had a baby with a new house. I think that was when I first started scrapbooking too.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Hmm...what do I remember most about being 29...I remember asking myself if I could possibly handle being Mom to 5 kids! I just had my 5th child, and I thought 4 was a challenge. Wasn't sure if adding another one would lead me straight to the doctor, asking for the "happy pills" to help cope with being Mom to so many kids. Boy was I wrong! I wouldn't change a single thing. Sure my husband and I faced and still face lots of challenges with our big family, but the joy my kids bring me; the greater appreciation for everything (because I see things so differently because of them); and the gift of having them in our lives is priceless!

  97. At 29 I was a mom of 2 and expecting my 3rd. Life was hectic, but good!

  128. I was an aerobics instructor at 29 and LOVED my life, much like you. But wait! It only gets better from here!!! Enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  129. 29 was eons ago. I was married and had a 10 year old son. I had worked in my job almost 10 years and had been promoted twice so I was doing pretty good for myself. However now that I am retired, DCWV has a very important part of my life. For once in my life, being retired means I can have a hobby and devote time to doing something I want to do for a change. Love scrapbooking and cardmaking especially with DCWV (my fav). You never have enough and have become a paperholic.

  131. Okay, 29 was not all that long ago, as I am 36, but it seems like FOREVER! I remember having a lot more energy, but that was before I had a baby...I wouldn't go back, though...like should get better as we age!
