Thanks for a Lovely Evening

I was invited out last night to a party at a friend's house. She hosted 20 of us and it was great fun. That was a lot of work for her so I wanted to make her something to say "thank you".

First Birthday

I was commissioned to make a little boy's first birthday card by a girl at work. I decided to keep it true to my CAS style and went with blue balloons. I really like the way this one turned out, the square seemed to showcase the bunch of balloons the best.

Pop Up Hot Air Balloon

I've been wanting to try some sort of "pop-up" card and when I bought the new hot air balloon set in the Occasions Catalogue, I knew I'd found the right set to work on it with.

The pop-up mechanism is actually very simple, and of course the possibilities are endless! My card is CAS (as always!) with just the use of Real Red and Shimmery White. I love the red/white combo, so fresh and clean looking.

Stamps : Lift Me Up
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Real Red

Post It Note & 2017 Diary

I made these post it note/calendar pads for Christmas stocking stuffers. They were a big hit :)

Directions for this template can be found here.

I purchased the 3x3 WHITE post it notes here, and the 2017 calendars here. The magnetic tabs were purchased here.

New Year 2017

I wanted to share a quick card I made for my sister from one of my favourite cupcake sets, now retired, called Create a Cupcake. I like this one much more than the cupcake image in the current catalog.
