All Stars January Blog Hop – Celebrate You with 80 Birthday Cards!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


Happy New Year and welcome to New Zealand for the monthly All Stars Design Team Blog Hop!   This month I went a bit overboard … I intended to make a stack of birthday cards and ended up making 80!!  All the project use the new Celebrate You Thinlits – available today in the South Pacific as a FREE gift with a qualifying purchase!

Let me share with you the highlights of my card making binge:



I began by just copying (basically) the sample in the Occasions Catalogue using the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper, but using the dies instead.  I just love these happy colours together.


I then just kept going with it and I love how versatile the dies can be – I plan to use these for our team birthdays and also for team promotions.


Next I moved onto the next sample right out of the catalogue, but changed it up to fit the dies.  The new Stripes Embossing Folder is fun, too.  I also started using the Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper.

Then I wanted to use the Tutti Fruiti Card bases and envelopes. This is a fun pack of 16 cards and envelopes, already printed and scored, and this is also FREE with a qualifying purchase during the SaleABration Sale!


The party hat paper called to be a border or a long strip while this design still features those awesome word dies.

Next is a similar design, but I’ve added the Birthday Mini Binder Clips.


At this point, I had used the entire pack of the Picture Perfect Design Series Paper, but was left with a pile of strips.  This is probably my favorite design of all of them and an easy way to use up all those strips we all have!  This time I didn’t use the “you” die to keep the card more clean.   Plus with just “celebrate” or “amazing”, the card is even more versatile.



And very last, I used all the circles from die cutting the “you” and made a confetti card.  Now I had truly used every last bit and have 80 cards in the stash!
