Birthday Blast & More

Today I’ll be sharing with you the projects and Make ‘n Takes that I made for my FREE Sale-a-bration Celebration Event that was held earlier this month for those who qualified during Sale-a-bration. I had a lot of fun pampering everyone – after all I couldn’t do this without each and everyone of you!

Here is my classroom all set up and ready to go.

Everyone had a spot with their treats and projects ready for them.

I made these cute little name tags using the Cool Treats stamp set (142982) so they could find their spot.

And everyone received these cute little post it note easel holders using the retiring Papillon Potpourri stamp set (132058/123759), Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406), Elegant Butterfly Punch (127526) and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies (141497).

I had a lot of fun making these post it note easel holders. (I’ll miss this stamp set with it’s coordinating punches it has been one of my go to sets. So many uses!) I found these sticky notes for them once again at Target – don’t you love their dollar spot? If you missed it and would like to learn how to make these holders I have a quick Video Tutorial HERE.

I also made these little chocolate holders using the retiring Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (141630).

It was sooo easy to whip up a batch of these. And after all who doesn’t enjoy a little chocolate?

I simply cut the Designer Series Paper into 3″ x 6″ strips, added a bit of Snail across the top and then folded them in half. Stamp my sentiment from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set (140273) and used the Triple Banner Punch to create the flag. Then I tied some Baker’s Twine in different colors around the top and slipped in a Ghiradelli Chocolate. Yep! That quick and easy!!!

And what did we make? 6 cards!  This first card got my daughter’s seal of approval so I had to include it. LOL! It uses the Birthday Blast stamp set (142854/142866).

This second card uses the retiring Playful Palette Designer Series Paper (141657) and the Grateful Bunch stamp set (140691) along with it coordinating Blossom Punch (140612).

And this final card uses the retiring Party Animal Designer Series Paper (142823) and Balloon Adventures stamp set (142823) from the Occasions Catalog. It’s got such great sentiments in the set.

There is still time to these wonderful retiring products, but it is while supplies last now. You can find them in my Online Store.

Monday was my birthday and so I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful cards I received from my stamping friends – they are all such wonderful cards! Isn’t the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement great?

This first card was sent to me by Leah and uses the Moroccan Designer Series Paper along with the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-a-bration.

This next card is from Shirley and she used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Thinlits Dies. She choose my favorite colors for this card – wonder is she knew?

And here is a lovely card from Hope that uses our Endless Wishes Stamp set

And a sweet card from Cindy using our Cool Treat stamp set – love the cherries!

And finally this technique card from Sue – striking!

It was a wonderful birthday – a beautiful spring day and I didn’t have to cook! since I got to try a new restaurant I’ve been wanting to try forever, Fenders Diner in Cornelia, with my honey. What could be a better way to celebrate?

On a personal note I want to thank you for being patient with me while I deal with technical problems. Seems like technology is not on my side lately and working against me lately. Things might still be a bit speratic while I fix the rest of the bugs. So thank you for your patience.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Endless Birthday Wishes

Do you ever take pictures with your phone and then totally forget about them? Well I do – a lot apparently since I just found these. LOL! Here are some pictures I wanted to share with you earlier this month and then forgot.

I made this card to send out for those May birthdays using the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set (140273). It was fun, colorful and quick and easy since I used our Scallop Circle punch that retires at the end of this month. I’m going to miss these punches since they make great focal points!

#imbringingbirthdaysback Endless Birthday Wishes (2)

The layout for this card was inspired by my friend, Janie’s swap that I shared with you HERE.

Another Thank You & New Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Set

Have you tried our Photopolymer stamps? Well if you haven’t yet, you should give them a try they are so easy to work with. They are really sticky, so just place them on your block and go. And Stampin’ Up! has stepped up our Photopolymer line by including them in the NEW 2014 Catalog. There are a lot of new sets too, yipppie!

And now not only can you find Another Thank You (136835) in the 2014 Catalog (available June 2nd), but they come in our Clear Mount Stamp Cases just like our other sets and have a wonderful new scent too – Chocolate! Gone is that chemical smell of Photopolymers. No airing out your sets – Yippie!

I showed you a gift that I gave for  graduation the other day for one of the twins and today’s project is the gift set I made with Another Thank You for the other twin.

Another Thank You note card set  In Color (3)

These note cards are also done in the NEW 2014-2016 In Colors that will be available on June 2nd. Along with a little note pad, pen, and clip using the yummy NEW Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stacks (133701).

Moonlight note pad and pen (4)

Although the gifts used a different stamp set I did end up packaging them the same way.

Would you believe this plastic bag is from some Playtex bras that my Aunt bought while she was visiting! LOL. Shhhh……Don’t tell the boys! Recycle and Reuse – think out of the box and you’ll be amazed what you can come up with. These little plastic bags were perfect for this set of note cards and stationary items.
