Kid's Birthday Swap

Hi everyone,
I've worked on a card swap of birthday cards for kids. These are the cards I came up with. I used layouts I found on Stampin' Connection The card made with Under the Stars was CASEd from Kari Vertican. The card using Simple Birthday Thanks was made using the ideas of several wonderful demonstrators on Stampin' Connection but not one single card. I cut the words out of the middle of the stamp so that is how I got the plain blue wrapper for the cupcake. I cut each piece of the cupcake and pieced it together. Then I used the Crop-O-Dile to make the sprinkles.

I got to use the Blueberry Crisp Designer Series Paper on the cupcake card and I think it came out really well. You can use it for both a girl and a boy, I think. The other card turned out very cute by layering two colors of ribbon instead of paper strips like the original I saw.

I'm working on my January workshops and Stamp Camps today so hopefully I'll have more to post in the next couple of days.

Happy Stampin'

It's been a while

I apologize for not adding to my blog in such a long time. However, report cards are now finished, shopping is complete and I can post a couple of pictures showing our family Christmas card and our baking day. I hope 2011 allows me more time add the projects I'm doing to this blog. My goal for 2011 is to organize the stamping room and hope that my husband finishes my studio. I plan to be more consistent in updating the blog with fun projects. Wish me luck! What are your wishes for the coming year?
