Happy Umpteenth (45th) Birthday!


Hello there!  Are you ready for a sketch challenge? The Pals Paper Arts have a great sketch this week that will work for any project.  Grab your provisions and play along, you might be our pick!

I knew that I needed a birthday card for my husband Chris, so the Oh My Goodness stamp set was the perfect starting point.  Add the matching deco labels framelits and you cannot go wrong!

I also needed some manly paper, so I picked a few prints from the pretty petals DSP pack.  Don't let the name fool you, there is prints for everyone.

Basic black bakers twine and my favorite gold metal buttons can dress this card up without being girly.

I HEART this new elegant dots TIEF, I think it is my new favorite.

I love the CAS look of this card, It was really quick and very striking at the same time.  Man cards are always a challenge for me, but with this sketch, it was very easy.

Well this was the year I was dreading, Mackie is starting her senior year of High School, and Tate is starting Kindergarten.  They are just about 12 years apart and are amazingly close.  Luckily they are at the same school, so Mackie will be close by and will even be able to volunteer in Tate's class twice a week.  I am so blessed to be the Mama to these sweet children.  This will be a big year!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I truly hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Hello there!  Today's project was made using the color challenge over at the Pals Paper Arts.  We host weekly challenges to jump start your creativity.  The challenge this week is a color challenge, so grab your colors, create something fun, then link it up for your chance to be a PALS pick!


Have you checked out the new IN colors?  The tip top taupe, is a great neutral, and will pair with virtually any of our Stampin' Up! colors.  I just received the Homemade for you bundle, which has a stamp set and matching thinlit set.  In this case, the bakers box thinlits dies make the cutest box just perfect for goodies.

The matching Homemade for You stamp set has a nice polka dot stamp that is easy to line up for an all over polka dot look.

This little starburst, the YUM, and the heart are also included in the bakers box thinlits die set, so you can dress up the bakers box.

Venetian ribbon (which is on sale this week) and the natural chevron ribbon turned backwards help to dress up my sentiment. I can't resist a bit of gold foil paper.

The new pretty petals DSP pack is sized 6x6 now, which gives you a better size options for more projects.

The bakers box thinlits also come with a few different dies to keep the box closed, I went with this shape and just tied a bunch of gold bakers twine to hold it closed.

It is definitely a fun, quick way to package up some goodies, the box might look small but it can hold a lot.  I cannot wait to try this box out for Halloween goodies, that will be fun!

You can shop all of these great finds at my ONLINE STORE right now, so head on over to get your creativity started.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
