Birthday Card Organizer Kit

Every Wednesday at 9am (ish) Pacific Time I go live on FB and You Tube to share a project. This week I shared the Christmas Card Organizer Kit. This kit is sturdy, beautiful, useful and makes a GREAT Christmas Gift too. Check out my cards below and my video to see how I really personalized the organizer itself as well as the way I managed to get an extra 6 cards from the kit supplies.

The first card in the kit I altered a bit. The back of the card base was so beautiful I wanted to use it to create another card. So I trimmed the front and back down to 4″ X 5-1/4″ each and mounted them on Soft Succulent card bases. Aside from trimming the Sahara Sand strip to 5-1/4″ I created the card exactly as described in the kit instructions.

Then I used the back of the card base on a Soft Succulent card base and the Cottage Rose bundle to create another coordinating card.

The Cottage Rose bundle coordinates beautifully with the Birthday Card Organizer.

The other card in the kit has a more masculine feel to it and is such a breeze to put together. I did use Liquid Glue instead of the provided Tear and Tape just because I like a little wiggle room when putting papers together.

I also added a personal touch to the inside of the organizer. January was created using the Joyful Flurry stamp set and some Soft Succulent Ink.

All of the supplies I used to create today’s cards are listed below. Watch the video replay as well to get some great tips on how to decorate inside your organizer and make some extra cards with the kit supplies.

You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.


After my video was done I added some details to a few more pages. Here are some ideas on how you can decorate your pages.

February – Flirty Flamingo hearts from Ringed With Nature and Petal Pink dots from Joyful Flurry.

May – Memento Black Ink to stamp bees and flowers from Honeybee Home, colour with Petal Pink and Soft Succulent.

November – Painted Poppies in Memento Black Ink, use Poppy parade and Soft Succulent Blends to colour.

December – Jingle, Jingle, Jingle in Memento Black Ink for the lights and Petal Pink for the stars. Colour the bulbs with Sweet Sorbet, Bermuda Bay and So Saffron. Stamp the tree from Peaceful Deer using Soft Succulent Ink.

If you are interested in booking a party with me so you have full use of my stamp sets to decorate your pages please contact me. I have a few days left in November and December.

If you do choose to place an order with me make sure to use my host code so that you will receive my special Thank You gift.

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a gorgeous autumn Inspiration Challenge. Take a look at all the beautiful cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

This thank you card was quick to create using my water colour pencils and a Blender pen.

I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze for the leaves and Early Espresso for the trunk and branches. I layered the beautiful autumn tree over top of some Early Espresso CS and the gold highlighted Texture Chic DSP.

Christmas Scottie Card

Who doesn’t love a cute doggie card? The Christmas Scottie stamp set is perfect for creating holiday cards. I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (#FMS557)

It actually escaped my attention at first – but I am so glad to have the fun stripes, spots, snowflakes and sentiments in my crafting stash.

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below. Watch the video replay to see how I create this card.

Yeti To Party Box Card

Every Wednesday I go live on Facebook and You Tube to create something fun – usually using my weekly featured stamp set. This week I created a fun fold card using the time-limited Yeti To Party bundle. The dies are only available until Sep 30th!

In my live I gave the audience a choice of Sweet Sorbet or Fresh Freesia – Sweet Sorbet won – but afterwards I created the Fresh Freesia version. I like both – but I think the Fresh Freesia is my favourite. What do you think?

See all the details in the video below – make sure to follow me on You Tube if you enjoyed today’s card. If you want a printable tutorial for this card, see below about my perfect partners special.
