Happy Birthday Emma!

Here’s a super cute gift I made for a friend’s daughter.  Nothing too fancy, but that is what I like about it.  I used the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die which you can find here.  Now this item is retiring from Stampin’ Up.  Hopefully there is still stock left by the time this posts.



I was lucky enough to attend the Stampin’ Up Onstage in Toronto and I cannot wait for you to see some of the new products.  If you are in Canada and do not have a demonstrator and would like the new catalogue when it becomes available, please send me an email and I will make sure you receive one.

Until next time, have fun creating!!



Stylized Birthday

This past weekend was my husband’s birthday.  We got him some hockey tickets which he loved.  I couldn’t just hand over the generic envelope with the team logo on it.  I had to make a super cute and simple envelope using the envelope punch board.  The stamp comes from Stampin’ Up and is called Stylized Birthday.


I think it turned out really cute.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Happy Birthday Shannon West!

For those of you that don’t know who Shannon West is….well I have posted about her recently.  You can check out that post here.  She started the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement.  Well she just had her birthday so you  know I had to make her a card.  Here it is…


The background is from the bonus stamp set from the April Paper Pumpkin kit.  The stamp set is Stampin Up Perfect Pennants.  I used the Banner Framelits Dies to cut it out.  I hope she likes it!

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Sparkly Birthday Card

I needed a birthday card for a girl that LOVES her bling.  After playing with ideas, here is what I came up with…


I forgot to take a picture of the inside (darn) but it does say Happy Birthday to you.  I also added a strip of the gold washi tape from Sale-A-Bration to the bottom of the card.

I am sure she will love it.

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!!
