A Fun Day at Island Scrapbooking

Hey Peeps, hope you're all enjoying the LONG weekend. I hopped over to Island Scrapbooking this morning for their 8 anniversary celebration. Michele had a birthday card contest and here's the tri-fold card I entered featuring Cupcake Birgitta by CC Design. Since Birgitta is in a sitting position, I had to place her on "something." At first, I just had a brown piece of paper. That didn't look quite right so I rummaged thru my embossing folders and found one with a brick wall design by Sizzix. Ohhhh, perfect. Gee, I think I had that for about a year and this is the first time I used it. :-)
Here's what it looks like on the inside.

And here's a close up of the brick wall.



Other supplies used for the tri-fold card: Spellbinder dies, Copics, Happy Birthday stamp by Hero Arts, sentiment by Amy R stamps, DP by Reminisce, and red cardstock (Cherry Splash) from Island Scrapbooking. This cardstock is thick and very nice.

Here's a little gift I made for Michele to congratulate her on celebrating 8 years of her successful business. Of course I filled it with Kit Kats, her favorite.



Supplies used for the box: Sizzix "Carry All Box", Spellbinder dies, "Fairy Princess" by TGF, Copics, and pearls by Kaiser Crafts, and Stickles.

And finally, oohhhh, check this out. Jenny had a make 'n take. Isn't this cute?



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the long weekend. Happy crafting!!!


Hugs,

Karen

How cute are these?!!! Your card with Birgitta sitting on that embossed stonewall is so neat! Great idea! And that gable box filled with kit kats is so pretty with the fairy princess. Sounds like it was a fun celebration!
