Mimi’s Fun Lift the Flap Inspiration

We hope you are having fun with new Change the Scene challenge! It is a 3-week challenge that will be open until Sunday, September 4th at 11:59PM ET.

All of the auto specialties, mechanics, tire store and car wash, are really busy in Mimi‘s brilliant lift the flap card! When you open the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps windows, you get a glimpse of the activity at each business!

Mimi inked a pretty backdrop on the Small Slimline with Lift the Flaps panel before she decorated each flap with a fun car theme! She combined Home for the Holidays cars, Smooth Sailing critters and Village Heroes fire station. She altered the little car to become the tow truck, adding the hook from Booyah and the package strings from Special Delivery Add-On. So clever!

Under the flaps you get a close up inside the tire store, the mechanics shop and the car wash! For this larger view she used the Car Critters car and critters from Berry Special, Scootin’ By and Merry Mice. To create the car wash, Mimi used the rolling pin from Baked with Love and the branch from Frosty Fairy Friends, how clever is that! Check out the supply list below for more images used in clever ways!

Thank you so much for inspiring us with this brilliant Change the Scene card, Mimi!

Mimi’s Succulent Terrariums Slimline Card

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We can’t wait to see your creativity! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only is a 3 week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Today, Mimi joins us with creative Plant-A-Succulent inspiration!

Mimi created a set of glass bowl terrariums to fill with succulents using lots of clever die sets and holographic cardstock. She started with a Scalloped Slimline cut from Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to frame a white Woodgrain background.

For the large terrarium she used the Lovely Latte die, filling it first with dirt and rocks then all the pretty succulents! She also included the sign die from Berry Special as a sweet little detail. I love how she replaced the O in so from Giant Thanks so Much with a succulent bowl, that is so clever!

She got really clever with the smaller bowls! The medium one is made with the coordinating die for Snow Globe Scenes. The small bowl is the windshield from the Car Critters coordinating die set with a piece from Plant-A-Succulent. I love how she hung it from the top of the card using a hanger from Mini Picture Frames!

She got even more clever to fill the bottom of the bowls with rocks made using the mouths from Make Me Smile along with the rock dies from Build-An Aquarium! Check out the handy diagram below for all of Mimi’s clever ideas.

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing design, Mimi! Your creative use of dies is so inspiring!


Happy crafting, friends! We hope you are having fun with this challenge!
