Our first Hamilton Extravaganza of the year was held last weekend and it was a wonderful day of creating fabulous projects, inspiration, and fun!

I used a similar layout to the cupcake popup card to create this birthday card. However, instead of cupcakes, I used the Birthday Cheer stamp set and coordinating Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies to create a card for my brother-in-law that features a fabulous border of birthday presents...

This birthday card has a bunch of fun techniques and a whole lot of wow-factor! I used the Birthday Cheer stamp set to stamp the words and confetti on the card front, and the coordinating Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies to create a sparkly cupcake border...

This birthday card features the Birthday Cheer Bundle and showcases some of the bright and fun designs from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, with a touch of cupcakes...

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

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.

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...

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.
