ESAD Birthday Fairy – April #2

Hi Friends

Just popping in to show you the second card in April’s ESAD Birthday Fairy card set.

Did you guess the colour I choose to use?

Have you worked out what the common theme was for this series.

As you may remember, I usually make quite a few of these cards each month and as a result I tend to pick a common theme, colour, idea etc and run with it for the whole months birthday fairy cards and just mix it up a little.

This month the common theme was using the Subtle Collections Designer Series Paper.  I love this product it always has soft patterns and as it uses the colours in the Subtles colour group it matches perfectly with the coordinating card stock.

Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack

Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack 130135
Designer Series paper makes it easy to create a card or Designer Series paper makes it easy to create a card or scrapbook page with coordinating background paper, cardstock, and stamped images.

* 12″ x 12″
* 40 sheets per package, 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors
* Acid free, lignin free

This is what it looks like on my SHOP page, it can be found under the PAPER, Designer Series Paper section.

It really is a very versatile product and comes in all five standard colour families as well as the two in-colour families.  The subtle pattern changes every year just to mix it up a bit.

Well enough about the Subtles DSP pack onto today’s card.

April Birthday Fairy - Bashful Blue

Again, I started with Whisper White card stock (such a valuable product, you always need a packet on hand), but this time I used Bashful Blue.  I love this blue it’s such a soft colour and perfect for baby boy cards.  As in the previous card I used Flower Shop stamp set and Petite Petals stamp set and punched the flowers out with the coordinating punches.  The DSP was tied together with Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon and Basic Pearls were added for that feminine touch.

As you know I can’t leave the inside of the card plain.

April Birthday Fairy - Bashful Blue - inside

Nice and simple inside, just a mat of Bashful Blue card stock and the large flower from Flower Shop and the small ones from Petite Petals stamped in Bashful Blue ink.

Do you decorate the inside of your cards or leave them?  I would love to hear what your personal preferences are.  Don’t forget to leave me a comment about my card if you want. I love to hear what you think of my stuff.

Now that you know what my theme is see if you can guess what colour tomorrow’s card will be.

Thanks for visiting.

ESAD Birthday Fairy – April #1

Hi Friends

I’m going to try and catch up on my back log of blog posts.

As I mentioned in my previous post things have been quite hectic of late and by the time I get home I am so exhausted I usually head off to bed early.

Today’s post is the first card in my series of ESAD Birthday Fairy cards for April (see I told you I had a back log..:) )

April Birthday Fairy - Baja Breeze


April Birthday Fairy - Baja Breeze - inside

My card is made with Whisper White card stock, Baja Breeze card stock and Baja Breeze Subtles designer series paper.  I stamped the flowers from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets, and then punched them out with the Petite Petals and Fancy Flower punches.

The Baja Breeze dsp in the background was punched with the scalloped edge tag punch (which you may remember from previous posts), and tied together with Baja Breeze ribbon.

I added Basic Pearls to the centre of the flowers to add that feminine touch and stamped the greeting in black StazOn ink.

Come back tomorrow and see what colour I used in the next card in this series.

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Friends

Are you into scrap booking?  Are you into digital scrap booking?  Have you heard of Becky Higgins?  Do you want a revolutionary, quick, creative new way to preserve all those wonderful life memories?

Get ready for a scrapbooking revolution with Project Life! It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way. We’ve partnered with Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, to offer a complete line of elite products.

Becky explains, “It’s called Project LIFE because it’s about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is. Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your family circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle. Project Life is designed to help anyone and everyone get their pictures into a book.”  In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

Why this is an awesome opportunity for you:


  • We’re the only direct sales company partnering with Becky Higgins so as a treasured Stampin’ Up! customer you’ve got exclusive dibs on purchasing Project Life through our direct sales model.
  • Pocket scrapbooking is all the rage! Project Life started this shift in memory keeping and continues to lead the way.
  • This simple scrapbooking solution appeals to non-crafters and crafters alike, giving you more ways to record all your favorite moments in life.
  • Becky Higgins has established a thriving brand with a huge following-everyone will be interested in buying exclusive-to-Stampin’ Up! Project Life products!


Why Project Life enthusiasts (and soon-to-be Stampin’ Up! enthusiasts) will want to buy:

  • Our products center on things that matter most-weddings, babies, kids, and the everyday moments of getting together with your favorite people-all things that need to be remembered.
  • Our card collections come without rounded corners so you can decide if you want to keep them that way (and match the corners of your photos as they come) or use our Project Life Corner Punch to round them out.
  • Our card collections come packaged in an exclusive storage system that holds all your Project Life supplies on your desk: cards, journaling pens, photos, accessory packs, stamp sets, and more.
