Birthday Celebration Exploding Box | 2016 Occasions Catalogue | GDP015

Today I have a treat for you - It's a sneak peak of several of the items to be launched in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue on January 5th & it fits perfectly for this weeks the Global Design Theme : Celebrate 

I have used a combination of items to create this amazing Exploding Box to celebrate a very special 18th Birthday!  

The recipient describes my project as "Uber Cool"

Orange was required as a feature colour for this special request - not usually on my colour radar, so quite challenging for me!  Here are some closer pics of the inside of the Exploding Box: 


And here's a close up of the centre piece:


See the little platform in the middle - it is for a battery operated Tea Light:

Be sure to pop over to the Global Design project to see all the wonderful creations for this awesome theme, you may even see some more sneak peaks of the new catalogue!

  1. Firstly, the colours sold me straight away, then the detail. These framelits weren't even on my list before. The 2016 Occasions Catalogue is going to cost me a fortune, I want EVERYTHING! Lovely work Sue.

  2. Sue - What a great showcase of so many wonderful products from the Occasions Catalog! Your exploding card is quite a celebration! Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Celebrate Theme at the Global Design Project.

  3. Very striking! And your clever use of the new framelits for the centre piece is the highlight, especially with the tealight!

  4. Holy Cow! Sue this is definitely a celebration in a box! Thanks for playing along this week at Global Design Project.
