Happy 18th Birthday #1 phew!!!!

I know, I know...two blog posts in one day...totally not like me, but I gots stuff I gots to get done!

Hard to believe my #1 phew is going to be 18 this weekend!!! Where has the time gone??

#1 phew is a staunch supporter of the Liberal Party (ugh) and with the upcoming Federal Election he is SUPER excited that he will be able to vote this year (if only everyone was so motivated to vote).

So while I kid that I will vote to cancel out his vote, I thought a red card with a play on the Justin Trudeau ads by the other parties would be funny for his birthday.

I wanted to add "nice hair though" on there somewhere but ran out of space so maybe I'll write it on the inside...he he he 

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Red and white cardstock (Recollections)
  • Black puffy letters (from an old card kit, not sure who made them I threw out the packaging)
  • Maple leaf punch (Martha Stewart)

Work Weddings!!

There have been four weddings at my workplace over the summer.
I was asked to make some cards for the newlyweds, here's what I came up with:

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Black and white cardstock (Recollections)
  • Large heart punch (SU)
  • Swiss Dots embossing folder (ProvoCraft)
  • Fishtail Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
  • Word Up stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)

SOS # 222 - Happy (Oldest) Birthday!

This week the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew want to see your very oldest birthday supply (a stamp, paper...whatever).

I had this one all planned out, going to use my Itty Bitty Birthday stamp, one of the very first stamp sets I bought from SU....ages ago...and the little happy birthday stamps fits perfectly in the word window punch....also something I bought ages ago from SU.

Well I still have the word window punch...but no Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set. I must have sold it last summer when I was purging a lot of my stamping supplies that I wasn't back to the drawing board!

I found this sketch HERE without realizing it was the same page I got another sketch from recently lol turns out she has a lot of sketches that I wonder I keep going back!!

Anyway, here is the sketch I started with:

And here's what I made:

It's getting so dark so early, I had to take this one in my craft room. The camera on my new phone (Samsung S6) is sooooo much better than my old Blackberry Z10!

Anyway, my "oldest" birthday thing is still the stamp set, it's "Happy Everything" from Lawn Fawn and it's my go to occasion stamp set and I've had it for years.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • 1" circle punch (SU)
  • Color Vibe Bolds design paper Simple Stories)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Fishtail & Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
Want to play along? We'd love for you to join us! Check out the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show the rest of the crew some crafty lovin!
