Jo's Scrap Shack Blogaversary Blog Hop!

Happy Sunday!! Today we are celebrating Jo's Scrap Shack's 3rd Blogaversary with a blog hop full of amazing inspiration showcasing projects with a Birthday theme!! I was so honored when my sweet friend Jo asked me to be a part of her celebration!!


You should have arrived from Amanda. If you are just stopping by or visiting me from your dashboard, you'll want to start at the the beginning at Jo's Blog so you don't miss any of the projects. Plus, Jo has an awesome prize up for grabs!!


Look at all those amazing goodies!! To be eligible to win this prize, you must:
  1. Visit each designer's blog on the hop
  2. Follow & leave a comment on each blog
You have until Midnight, May 4th to leave comments. Jo will announce the random winner from one of the designers blogs on her blog on Tuesday, May 5th.

Now for my project...


I created a gift bag and matching card to celebrate a birthday :)


For the bag, I used several layers of Prima papers sewn together, the edges distressed with a Zutter DIA. A Prima Junk Yard Findings zipper was used to "unzip" the paper. The butterflies are Memory Box Isabella butterflies, covered in sugar coating and popped up with foam tape.


Memory Box Chloe Stems and Botanical Stem leaves are tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts blooms. Happy is a My Creative Time die, also covered with sugar coating. The banners are Taylored Expressions Banner dies. Birthday is also from My Creative Time. The button on the crinkle ribbon is a Poppystamps Stitched Button die.


The card was made basically the same as the bag, but the butterflies are punches.


You can sorta see that I used a Chloe stem for the inside of the card.


And because I can't just make one card, I made two!! This one with my favorite color of pink :)

Make A Wish

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions Blog and I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you with you using several Die-Versions dies.


The papers are from Prima and the edges were all distressed with a Zutter DIA. I started with the Whispers Bricks Background and cut it in half, before popping it up with foam tape and adding flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. A Whispers Heart Burst die was placed behind the bricks.


A Wish Compliments Everyday die was used for the sentiment. The bike is a Whispers Pedal Power die. I popped it up with foam tape for dimension as well. A Wee Petite Button Die was used on the ribbon.
