Happy Birthday Kelly

As you already know I have busy with my new craft room.  I did manage to make my sister a birthday card for her 41st birthday in March.  So I used the new Balloon Bouquet Punch from Stampin Up to help me out.

Here’s what I came up with…

The card is a full 8 1/2″x 11″ piece of card stock folded in half.  The Designer Series Paper is from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack

Here is the inside of the card…

I cut out 41 balloons in total.  I also used some Wink of Stella on some of the balloons.  The sentiment comes from a Sale-A-Bration set called Perfect Pairings (unfortunately it’s no longer available).

Until next time…have fun creating!!

This "movement" was started by Shannon West of Stampin Up.  Here's a excerpt of her post to explain…

 

"LET'S ALL BRING BIRTHDAYS BACK

By Shannon West, Demonstrator Training Manager

It started one Saturday in January. I was kicking myself for not sending out my Christmas cards, but I also noticed that many friends had simply posted their Christmas cards on Facebook rather than sending them in the mail. For years I’ve complained about Facebook ruining birthday cards and now it would seem the same was happening to Christmas cards. A handmade, handwritten card in the mailbox seemed to be nearly extinct—and I was contributing to the problem! I wanted to do something drastic and immediate to stop this neglect and hold myself accountable.

So that Saturday in January, I made a decision: I posted on Facebook that I would send a birthday card to any of my friends that wanted one. I didn’t think about the possibilities or consequences…I just posted and was astonished when the responses started rolling in.

After 24 hours, I had over 300 responses…far more than I had ever received on a previous post. I started a spreadsheet to keep track and went to work making and sending birthday cards. 

Two days later, I posted a photo of my first set of cards that I was sending. At this point, my posts started to be shared and others started posting that they were also sending cards to their friends. These results were an absolute surprise!

As my friends began receiving their cards, they posted photos of them on social media to thank me. This sparked another idea: there needed to be a way to easily see all the cards—my cards and others’ cards too—so that we could see all the different ideas to CASE (Copy And Share Everything). Playing on the lyrics of a Justin Timberlake song, the hashtag #imbringingbirthdaysback was born! I wanted to stamp it on each card so that the receiver would know to use the hashtag if they posted the card, so I carved my very own #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp.

So this got me thinking….I would like to do this too!!  I would love to send out cards to friends.  So what do you need to do…..simple.  Email me your information….birthday, name, address.  Now if your birthday has passed I would still like to send you out a card.  Maybe a Happy Belated Birthday card or maybe Happy Spring….who knows but don't worry if your birthday has passed.  All I ask is that you send it to me by email (creativecraftcorner@rogers.com) or facebook message.  Please don't leave all your information in the comments.

Happy Birthday to You

It was my cute little niece’s birthday recently and I naturally had to make her a birthday card.  I used a lot of products from the birthday collection from Stampin Up.  They are fun and super easy to use to create cards.

I loved it so much that I had to make my mother one for her birthday as well….

Happy Anniversary??

Before I get to my project I need some feedback.  I am lucky enough to be getting my own craft room!!  As exciting as it sounds, it’s also overwhelming.  From paint colour to set up…etc…..it’s a lot to think about.  I am looking for any tips or suggestions for those that have craft areas.  What do you like about your space that is working for you?  What would you change?  I appreciate all of your help.

Now on to my project….

A family member had a birthday coming up and as a paper crafter it’s hard to buy a card (not that I haven’t done it).  The problem is that this card was for a male.  I’m sure I am not the only one who has a hard time making cards for men.  Here is what I came up with…

And an envelope to match….

Not too bad if I do say so myself.

Celebrate You

My daughter celebrated her birthday last month.  Naturally I had to make her special gift card holders for her gifts.  When I make my gift card holders I usually do not close them up so that the recipient can reuse it.  This is no exception.  I also went with a simple sentiment as it gives my daughter many possibilities for reusing the gift card holder.

As per usual, I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the gift card holders.  The Envelope Punch Board is on sale right now.  You can check it out here.  Here’s the two gift card holders I made…

I also got a bunch of makeup brushes that she wanted and also had to make my own packaging for them.  Here’s what I came up with…

I used the 2, 4, 6, 8 templates.  These are super easy to make.  You can search for this box as there are many tutorials out there.

Until next time…have fun creating!!
