Today is my birthday and I have been getting “Happy Mail” all week. (Read all the way to the end to find out how you can get some happy mail too!) Here’s some of the beautiful handmade birthday cards I received.
Birthdays have always been special in our family! I have been celebrating all week with my daughter home for spring break. I was hoping to be able to return to work next week but it seems I have to be patient a bit longer. I really miss my class! Yesterday I received a special text message from my sweet Pre-K students.
And here’s something else that’s sweet….some more blog candy! Leave me a comment sharing a favorite birthday memory or surprise and I will pick a random winner to receive one of my birthday party favor bags. Anyone who shops with me this month will automatically receive my birthday party favors…a goodie bag with one of my Tutti-frutti pens, card kits, and more!
Have a great day!

ONLY 7 DAYS LEFT to take advantage of SALE-A-BRATION!
Here’s a look at all the different items you can get for FREE.
Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart:
“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…in this we make a difference.”
Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today is all about one of my new favorite Designer Series Paper (aka DSP), The Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can get this paper pack for FREE with a qualifying order. You get 12 sheets of 12 x 12 Spring-inspired paper with foil designs (3 each of 4 single-sided designs in Gold foil, Rose Gold foil. and Silver foil).
I have been enjoying some “coloring therapy” lately. I love my Stampin’ Blends and used them to color the beautiful designs on the DSP.
Both of these cards showcase simple layouts that you can use again and again with different DSP and sentiments.
The sentiment on this card from Butterfly Basics. It is so versatile and can be used for birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day, Get Well, etc. I like the Powder Pink with the Rose Gold foil. The DSP measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and the layer is 1/8″more. I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut and layer my stamped sentiment. I colored the flower from the DSP using Old Olive and Pink Pirouette Blends. I fussy cut it out and adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. Clean & Simple!
My next card showcases the other two patterns from this DSP as well as my favorite dies from Sale-A-Bration, Celebrate You.
This is another clean & simple card design. It’s just 2 pieces of DSP ( 2 x 4) with a ribbon in the middle to cover the seam. (You could add a banner instead of the ribbon.) I love the Celebrate word die as it can be used for many different occasions. The silver foil die ties in with the foil in the DSP as well as the metallic ribbon. I added a couple of vellum punched leaves behind the sentiment.
I used the Pool Party Blends to color the leaves to tie in with the card base.
Here’s another version of this card. It could be for a wedding, shower, engagement, or anniversary. I added the die cut heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and a couple of metallic enamel hearts. Quick & easy!
Previously, I shared some cards I colored using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (another favorite of mine!). Click HERE to view.
Here’s a peek at all the new Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.
It’s no secret that I love DSP! I actually did a whole alphabet series on DSP! Here are links to several posts I did that show how to cut 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 DSP to make the most use of your paper. *The first link takes you to my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’ (which is a great series for anyone new to stamping). It also shows how I organize my DSP.
If you want to view the whole alphabet series with DSP, go to categories and click ABC’s with DSP. It will start with Z and go backwards. *If you want to start with A, go to archives and begin at October 3, 2016.
Here’s another look at today’s cards. Do you have a favorite?
