This month we are featuring BIRTHDAY IDEAS made with Stampin' Up! Products.  Please enjoy the samples and the tour.

My first Birthday Sample is a card I made with MY DIGITAL STUDIO.. this was my swap card from our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting last weekend. 🙂

I printed the card fronts at home on my Epson R1900 photo printer and mounted them to Pretty in Pink and Real Red cardstock.  Then I added some Rhinestones (pg 188, # 119246) for a little BLING:

My 2nd BIRTHDAY SAMPLE was from my workshop a couple weekends ago, we made these fun cards using some great new Stampin' Up! products!!

Janice's workshop guests were able to select any of the patterns of paper in the fun FREE Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series paper kit, along wtih the self adhesive die cuts, the Ice Cream Parlor Ribbon and Buttons!  YES, IT'S ALL FREE!!  THese items are found in the Stampin' Up! Sale a Bration catalog!

They also used the fab fun Build a Cupcake Punch and the Create a Cupake stamp set.

This is my favorite new greeting…

Happy birthday
