3 cards and a layout

If you are looking for the Tuesday Trio Blog Hop post please scroll down :)

This past weekend Ella was invited to 2 birthday parties, one of them for twins. That means we needed 3 birthday cards. The twins mom asked to bring an unwrapped gift to be donated Boys and Girls of America. I still wanted to bring something small for the birthday girl and boy, so I found those glow in the dark silly bands and built birthday cards around them. I attached each package of silly bands with 2 glue dots.

The first card is for the birthday girl. It is also one of my DT projects for Scrapbook Express.

Supplies: cardstock (Bazill Basics Dotted Swiss), patterned paper (American Crafts), layered sticker (My Mind's Eye), flower and chick punch (Fiskars), ink (Colorbox), stamp (Papertrey Ink), pen (Sakura)

Next is the boy version of the card.

Supplies: cardstock (Recollections), patterned paper and stickers (Basic Grey), ink (Brilliance)

The last card is for the girl that celebrated her birthday with Halloween party. Inside Ella glued candy and little black bat.

Supplies: patterned paper and diecut shapes (My Mind's eye), punch (Fiskars)

And here is my favorite creation. I always loved this photo of Lila taken at her preschool. It was her 3rd birthday party and she looks so happy with this chocolate cake smeared on her face. I loved her curly hair. Sadly after she turned 5 the curls disappeared. This is an original photo printed in 2001.

Supplies: patterned paper (Making Memories, Bella Blvd), chipboard (Bella Blvd), tapes (Love My Tapes), journaling circles (Jenni Bowlin), big pink flowers (Heidi Swapp), small flower (unknown), letter stickers (Bella Blvd), stickles (Ranger), epoxy stickers (Cloud 9)


  1. I like what you did with the mini-presents inside those cards - very clever idea! I love the dino card - that range of papers is great. The flower and birdie is cute and the Halloween/birthday is good fun.
    The scrap page of Lila and her cake is lovely. Pity about the curls, eh? Would they come back if her hair was cut carefully, perhaps with those thinning/layering scissors - it makes my curls come back!

  2. Cute idea with the silly bands inside - adorable cards!
