My Stampin’ Birthday Party – Thanks for joining me today for my birthday party! I shared this video on my YouTube Premiere last night and celebrated with a couple hundred of my stamping friends. How cool is that?


I am excited to show off the video from last night because the projects I shared were SO fun! I created a gift bag with a card slide, a simple and quick WISH card, and a birthday cake in a box (candle and all!).

Let me share some photos of the gift bag and card holder. It was my favorite of the three projects. This card was created with the Broadway Birthday stamp set – my go-to birthday set!


The card actually slides down into the slot in the Blueberry Bushel creating a decoration for the bag itself. Pretty nifty, huh?


I just loved the balloons on the card. Who wouldn’t love a card like that? The only struggle is this is a card that can’t be mailed. Hand delivered only.

I had a wonderful birthday with my theatre family last night. Right now, the cast of “Noises Off” is my other family and let me tell you, they are amazing. We are working so hard to make a GREAT show. We open in just a little over a week so it’s gettin’ REAL!
