Card Share: Happy Birthday 1 (Pink Paislee Fancy Free)


It turned out to be birthday card week on my blog. LOL! I love personalizing birthday cards with the recipient's age, especially for the younger set. These awesome chipboard hang tags from Dear Lizzy Saturday are perfect for doing just that. I've used them on cards and I'm currently working one into a layout about Alexa and her best friend. This one happened to pair well with Pink Paislee's Fancy Free collection.

Altered Project: Holiday Gift Bag Trio


I meant to share these gift bags last month as kind of a Christmas in July thing, but didn't get around to it, so let's go with Christmas in August instead. :)

I altered small kraft gift bags with tags I bought on clearance at Target a few years ago. The tags are tied to the bags with natural jute and simply decorated with Simple Stories stickers and enamel dots.

I can think of plenty of fun goodies to fill these with. How about you?

Card Share: Balloons


Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Remember that package of chipboard anchors I mentioned a while back? Well, this is the last of the four cards I made with them. I went the girly route (how could I not with the fun hot pink), adding in black and white to finish off my favorite color combo.

Chopped (Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness)


Today's layout is brought to you by Alexa, a selfie and her new haircut. She decided to cut her hair after dance season was over (because she didn't have to put it into a bun any more). She ended up donating 10 inches to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program. Not only do I think she looks adorable, but I'm really proud of her too.
