Simply Scrappin’ Photo Cube

I *love* this project for 2 reasons:

1. It features my adorable family. 2. It was SO easy!

Justin and I usually bake chocolate chip cookies for my husband for Valentine’s Day. Since my husband has been working out 3 or 4 days a week at the gym, I decided not to sabotage that and made him a gift for his desk at work instead. I used a Making Memories Photo Cube (around $3 at JoAnn or Michael’s) and the Stampin’ Up! Home Again Simply Scrappin’ Kit. These kits are amazing! Everything coordinates perfectly and there’s so much to work with. I made this cube and have enough left over to make cards, scrapbook pages, or more cubes! If you haven’t tried using one of these kits, I highly recommend you give them a shot.
