Happy First Birthday Gorgeous!

This sweet card was a custom order for a gorgeous little lady who celebrated turning one on the weekend!

It was modelled on the invite which was beautiful & floral – and a perfect inspiration match for the flowers in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

It was a special creation with lots of 2-step stamping & fussy cutting, but worth all the effort to see the stunning floral bouquet come together!

Happy birthday to the little lady!  May the rest of your years be as happy and carefree as your first!

CASEing the Catty #133 – Love & Sympathy

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty blog hop, which takes place every Sunday.

This week we’re CASEing (Copying & Sharing Everything or Copying & Selectively Editing) the Love & Sympathy pages of the catalogue.

No automatic alt text available.

There’s lot of inspiration tucked away in these pages – and lots of gorgeous projects to start your creative journey.

I was intrigued by the cut out portion of this card…

And decided to recreate it in pinks with a dragonfly theme!

The base is shimmery white.

Using the dragonfly outline die, I cut a dragonfly from the edge of the card and from a separate piece of shimmery white cardstock, I cut the largest detailed dragonfly die.

I adhered the large dragonfly to the inside of the card.

Then, using a retired washi tape (using my jeans first to desticky it a little), I created a mask around the edges and coloured the middle rectangle with my Aqua Painter in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

The final step was to add the embellishments to the front of the card – mini dragonflies, washi tape, sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous & bling – new rhinestones & glitter enamel dots.

I am loving the new washi packs that come in similar colours.  I’ve used the pinks today, which is the Basics Pack 1.

I kept it all in the pink theme, because this card is going to someone who loves pink!

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop: Birthday Theme

It’s my birthday, which makes it the perfect reason to have another team blog hop!

With all the originality I could muster, the theme for this hop is ‘birthday’!

Be sure to click on the link at the end of each post to take you to the next blog or Facebook page and see what the talented Paper Adventures team have created.


It’s super handy having your birthday in the same month as pre-order!!!

Happy birthday to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am most excited about the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle.

I have been waiting for a Happy Birthday Thinlit – and the coordinating stamp set is stunning (to a font nerd like me).

So of course, it was first on my pre-order list!

Using this bundle, and the cute little girl stamp from the Birthday Delivery stamp set (another new catalogue gift… from me to me!), I made this gorgeous balloon overload birthday card.

I love that many of the new Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with products we already have – like the Balloon Bouquet punch!

And how amazing is that birthday thinlit!!!

And did you spy the cuter-than-cute bow holding all the balloons together?

Blank of course, so I can fill it in once I've worked out just how much I need!

Pre-tied bows in the 2017-2019 In Colors are available on 1st June!


Since I’m all into buying my own birthday presents – I make it very easy for my family – I thought a gift voucher was in order.

This is the gift voucher holder I made to keep it safe…

I carried over the theme of the little girl and colours from the balloons.

You’ll notice the voucher has been left blank… so I can fill it in once I’ve worked out just how much I need!
