It's a Party!

That is what it is when I get together with my Saturday Scrappers. We are not a large group of gals but we are fun! Plus with these pages, we are preserving our family memories for years to come.  This month l had a request for Birthday Pages. I took that challenge because what do we have every year - Birthdays!
I knew that I wanted to do pages that could be used for a more feminine birthday,  a boy and/or a younger birthday.
Some of the fun punches and dies that I used were the Pennant, Cupcake, Scallop Edge Border Punches, and the infamous Top Note die, (love that die). To make the larger cupcake I used the Two Tags die, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder and then the Crimper for the cupcake paper wrapper. Simple!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your birthday is/was a fun-filled party!

Love "was" in the air

Why did I say “was” in the air you ask? Because I am posting this blog so late! Valentine’s Day is gone; the flowers are wilted and should be tossed out by now. But, the cards we made are still beautiful and fun to look at and of course to share. 
First off, we made a fun card using the Take it to Heart stamp set. I like the playfulness of the young children on the bike.  Although it is not a bicycle built for two, they make it work. And really isn’t that what we do for love, “make it work”. I mean that in a good way, life does not always work out the best every time but if you are willing to make it work you can be happy and in (young) love. When life gives you lemons make lemonade.
Okay talk about FUN! This card was so much fun to make with my Mojo Gals. Starting with the fun shading for the ample bosom for the lady heart to the stateliness of the gentleman’s jacket, we were laughing all night long. What was interesting was the group’s interesting thoughts about the words; bosom, boobies, panties, etc. Life is so wonderful having unique friends. That is the best way, when everyone is so unique and brings so much fun to life!

Last, there was a cute birthday card using one of the “Packed for Everything – Birthday” stamp. There is a bundle of 4 individual stamps (Baby, Birthday, Dad and Mom) in the full bundle or you can purchase just one stamp, found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Cute, simple and colorful.

Also used for every one of these cards, there was the new Framelits Die, the Edgelits Die and/or Textured Impression Embossing Folders, all found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Keep watching for more examples of these great new die products.
