Birthday Bash Blog Hop is Here!




It's here! Inspire Swap Chat's first official blog hop. Along this journey you will be introduced to some amazing birthday themed projects. Hopefully you arrived from Jennifer's blog http://www.randomvintagefinds.blogspot.com/ If not I'd like to guide you back to Inspire Swap Chat so you can hop along, and enter to win an adorable Birthday Themed Basket filled with goodies to make scrapbook pages or cards.




Here's my two projects, shown above.




The first is a birthday card for my dh's birthday in November. Sshhh, it's a surprise! I used all Amy Butler patterned paper, and an epoxy button from the dollar store. I attached everything with pop dots to give them some dimension. The pic of us is from years ago. I carefully cut us out, and attached some patterned paper party hats. The top note die cut was an RAK .
The second card is from my DS's birthday earlier this month. I used plain craft paper over a larger sized card, some American Crafts patterned paper, SU label stamp, Studio G sentiment stamp, and trimmed the label to follow the curve of the circle. The numbers are plain chipboard embossed with several layers of Ranger Black embossing powder.
I hope you are enjoying the blog hop so far. The ISC members are so creative I know you must be. But it is not over yet. You still have three more stops and then your final stop at the ISC blog. Next is http://www.whatspeaks2myheart.wordpress.com/ . Believe me you will be happy you stopped by to see what she created. Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget in order to be eligible for the great prize package you will need to leave a comment on all the member blogs along with a final comment on the ISC blog letting us know what your favourite project was.
Thanks so much for joining us!
take care,
Katherine
