Stampin Friends Birthday Celebration Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin Friends April Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Birthday/Celebration!  I am happy that you are here! To keep going through all the blogs you will simply follow the Blog List for this hop (below) to see all the amazing projects from each blogger. 

This month we welcome Jennifer Knape Cerizo, as our guest hopper.  Make sure you check out her projects.

Now let's get right to my projects.  All items I used are from Stampin' Up!©  I made 2 birthday cards and coordinating candy holder favors.
Time to Celebrate a Birthday!
Confetti Celebration Birthday Card
   
Big on Birthdays Card

Candy Holder Favors each holds a Ghirardelli chocolate
To create a small favor to give to each guest at your party, you can't go wrong with Ghirardelli Chocolates.  I cut the Party Animal DSP @ 2" x 6", Score along the long side at 2-7/8" & 3-1/8".  Punch both ends of this piece using the Tag Topper Punch.  Place glue dots on the back of the chocolate and place along the score line.  Fold up on both score lines, matching the ends. Wrap ribbon around the favor, thread it through both punched holes and tie a bow.  Stamp a greeting and add to front using a glue dot.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the projects I created.  To help orient yourself, you are at Barbara Welch's Blog.  Simply click Raquelle Clifton's name on the list below and you will continue on the hop.

    Stampin Friends All Things Love Blog Hop

    I am so excited to be a regular hopper this year with Stampin Friends.  This months theme is Love. If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Kathie's blog.  Click the previous button to return to her blog.

    Let's get right to it with my projects.  All supplies are from Stampin' Up! ® 
    I created 2 cards and a treat bag that has chocolate Hugs & Kisses inside.  I used the Sealed with Love Stamp Set, Sending Love DSP Stack and Love Notes Framelits from the Occasions Catalog.

     
    For this card I love this mini hearts paper.  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Love Notes Framelits.  Don't you love the new Doilies and the grosgrain ribbon from the Occasions Catalog?











    I used Real Red Ink to stamp the cute little squares and the hearts on the little note that fits inside the envelope.  I love this little envelope that is part of the Love Notes Framelits. Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp from the annual catalog stamped in Crumb Cake to give a splatter background.   

    For the treat bag I used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags from the Annual Catalog. I scored 1/2" along both sides and the bottom so it will stand up. I used the Wink of Stella on the red heart to give it some glimmer.  The lips are stamped in Real Red Ink.  I love the new Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon that is in the Occasions Catalog.



    I punched 3/4" Circles from the Sending Love DSP Stack and using glue dots, stuck one to the bottom of the chocolate hugs & kisses.
