Presents & Party Hats!

Simple, simple, simple... that's what these fun birthday cards are!

Birthday Cheer Birthday Note Card

Stamps: Birthday Cheer Stamp Set (cling: 148604).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Stamp Pad (132708).  Markers: Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends (147274), Cherry Cobbler Light Stampin' Blend (144576), Highland Heather Stampin' Blends (147276), Pool Party Light Stampin' Stampin' Blend (144595).  Card/Paper: Granny Apple Green (147014), Gorgeous Grape ()147011, Whisper White (106549).  Accessories: Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (144220).  Tools:  Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

I stamped the present, party hat, and words from the Birthday Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock.  I then chose one main colour and one accent colour, and used the Stampin' Blends to simply colour the fun, bold stamped images.  This I adhered to card stock that matched the main colour and mounted it on the front of Whisper White Note Cards, adding a small rhinestone to finish.

Birthday Cheer Birthday Note Card

I love creating birthday cards with complicated folds, fun techniques, and delicate details to wow the recipient.  But sometimes I like a change and enjoy creating with a clean-and-simple look, and these birthday cards will surely pack just as much punch for the recipient.

A Cupcake Notepad For You!

Dollar-store notepads are great for creating a personalised gift.  This notepad has a lovely, girly feel to it and would look sweet on anyone's desk.  The delicious colours are the striped patterned paper from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.

Birthday Cheer Altered Note Pad

Bundles: Birthday Cheer Stamp Set + Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (cling: 150576).  Ink: Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write Marker (Brights: 147157).  Card/Paper: Melon Mambo (119980), Whisper White (106549), How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (148568).  Accessories: Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon (148572), Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins (148561).  Tools:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658).  Other: Dollar-store Notepad.

Because I wanted the beautiful designer paper to steal the show, I only needed a few elements to complete the notepad.  Along the bottom I adhered die-cut cupcakes as a white silhouette, wrapped around some gorgeous Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon, and added a scattering of sequins.  The words are from the Birthday Cheer stamp set and are stamped directly onto the designer paper stripes.

So happy to have you in my life

I love dollar-store notepads.  They are inexpensive to purchase, fun to cover and decorate, and a simple gift that is great to give and small enough to easily post.  Or you could personalise it for your own desk!  This notepad uses the fabulously eclectic Amazing Life stamp set on the cover, coloured with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends...

Amazing Life Altered Note Pad

Bundles: Amazing Life Stamp Set + Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (photopolymer: 148750).  Stamps: Crackle Paint (cling: 148752).  Ink: Granny Apple Green (147095), Tuxedo Black Memento (132708).  Markers: Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends (144045), Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends (147274), Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (144603).  Card/Paper: Granny Apple Green (147014), Calypso Coral (124392), Whisper White (106549).  Tools:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (144108).  Other: Dollar-store Notepad.

The stitched frame that forms the focal point on the cover was created using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  These dies are awesome!  The Rectangle Stitched Framelits die-cut a variety of rectangle shapes with stitched edges.  But not only that, the negative frame left behind also has stitching on it.  Great idea!

Amazing Life Photopolymer Stamp Set + Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies Bundle
Amazing Life Stamp Set + Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies Bundle (photopolymer: 150624) - $106.00

I've finished the cover of this notepad with the lovely Crackle Paint background stamp...

Amazing Life Altered Note Pad

Crackle Paint Cling Background Stamp
Crackle Paint Stamp (cling: 148752) - $34.00

This is one of my favourite background stamps right now.  It's got that lovely cracked-paint look, or it could be aged wood, or tree bark.  Great interest and versatile stamping!

Happy Valentine's Day

If you've followed my website posts over the years, you will know that we have a family tradition on Valentine's Day is to share our love with each other (parents and kids, not just couples).  So today, we are each writing a message of love to the other four family members and will pop them inside a personalised gift box.  Then we will get together over a meal to open them and read the little notes of love we shared.

Meet the family!

Family & Friends Valentine Sweet Cups

Stamps: Family & Friends (photopolymer: 148698), Make A Difference (photopolymer: 146676).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento (132708).  Markers: Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends (148544), Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends (148059), Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends (147281), Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends (147278), Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends (145058), Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends (144603), Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends (144601), Bronze Stampin' Blend (144607), Ivory Stampin' Blend (144606), Color Lifter (144608).  Card/Paper: Balmy Blue (147007), Crumb Cake (121685), Lovely Lipstick (146993), Flirty Flamingo (141421), Soft Sea Foam (147012), Whisper White (106549), Whisper White Thick (140490), All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576).  Accessories: Sweet Cups (148573), Whisper White 5/8" Tulle Polka Dot Ribbon (146912).  Tools:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372), Layering Circle Framelits Dies (141705), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

For each of the five family members, I chose a pretty sheet from the All My Love Designer Series Paper pack and a coordinating card stock colour to decorate the fabulous Sweet Cups.  I then had a lot of fun stamping and colouring the various "body parts" from the Family & Friends stamp set to personalise each one...
