Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day! But I celebrate it as many days as I can! I am celebrating it today specifically because it’s also my birthday! (see below)

Just another great day to share the opportunity, the love, and the passion of this wonderful craft and hobby. I have been creating handmade cards since I was a girl. While I have only been with Stampin’UP! a few years, it has been during this time that I have experienced an explosion of personal creativity. Much of that is because of their product coordination, and the high quality of their products. 

So while I have a couple of team members, my focus is on creating and sharing. This is what I love about being a part of Stampin’UP! They make it so easy to share. The examples below that I am sharing are from the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit. One of the kits on sale now for World Cardmaking Day thru October 7th, today!  (see below) This is a great all around kit that has different sentiments. I have either added to each of the cards, or changed it completely. The projects are great as they are, but I am hoping you will see how versatile the kit is and how well Stampin’UP! does kits!

In this example, I added the heart cut out from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits,

(item #141489) found in the annual catalog

On this card I simply add the Grapefruit Grove grosgrain ribbon. (item #146954)

With card I changed the sentiment completely. I loved this background on the card, and just wanted to compliment it further. I used the Pleasant Pheasant Stamp Set (item # 147684) colored with the Watercolor Pencils (item # 141709). Added an Old Olive ribbon, and a sentiment.

Calligraphy Essentials

The last card from this project I simply added the punched balloons (item # 140609) in contrasting colors and stamped them with H B (happy birthday) using the Make a Difference Stamp Set (item # 146676). All of these cards were good, I just felt they were slightly on the plain side. 

Birthday Wishes Come True, Celebrating Mickey's Birthday, WDW here we come!

As a side note I want to share with you my thanks and appreciation for reading my blog, following me on social media, and just the general support I have gotten from my readers and my fellow demonstrators.

I will be celebrating in November in Orlando for Stampin’UP! 30th anniversary!

My wonderful husband is treating me to WDW! for my birthday!

I Love You Sam, and Thank you!

xoxo Rachael
