Celebrate Every Day!

February is the month of Birthdays for my family- My dad, sister, nephew, and niece all have birthdays this month. Growing up three of my friends also had birthdays in February as well as my cousin. It feels like February is just the birthday month!

Stamps:Outlined Expressions
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Markers
Accessories: Adorning Elements Framelits, Big Shot, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Everyday Enchantment Brads, 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Mini Silver Brads

I made this card in December as soon as I got my pre-ordered Sale-a-bration stamps and new products from the Occassions Mini Catalogs. I love those brown boxes of fun, new stuff. I think I tried to use most of my new stuff on this card. That can happen-all the ideas flow at once--with every new thing! I used the new framelits for this card, just trimming my Celebrate section to fit the card front. The colors aren't right in this photo--I'm not sure what happened, but they looked better in real life. I found the combination somewhere, and liked it. Now, I don't like it as much. Funny how that happens!

Happy Stamping!



  1. Great card! I love the oval in the Label Framelits. such a great idea!So glad I have one of these in real life!

  2. I like the belly band on the framelits! Nice touch!

  3. What a fabulous color combination! I have a gazillion birthday cards to make too!

  4. Glad you listed the colors! That's not what I thought it was! Cute card!

  5. We have a lot of birthdays in February too. Love the colors on this one.

  6. They are definitely festive colors, and I feel your pain with getting them to photograph right... I sometimes spend more time with editing the photos that making the cards! Well, almost more time, lol!
    Awesome card!

  7. Great idea for showcasing some of the great new stuff!
