I am so excited about joining the Practical Scrappers team! I look forward to the upcoming challenges and I hope I inspire others as I have been inspired by the wonderful artists out there!
Here is a quick and short bio- I am a stay-at home mom of 3 wonderful (and energy-draining) kids. Two boys (4 and 2) and a 8 mo. daughter. Nap-time is my crafting time. I use it as a relaxation method! I normally make cards, but just recently started to make scrapbook pages! I am addicted to looking at the fellow bloggers' pages (that is my after bedtime addiction)!
Practical Scrappers is celebrating their 1 year anniversary this week. So they are bringing a different challenge for each day. Today's challenge is to make a card or LO celebrating a "first" (birthday, anniversary, tooth, etc).
I have made a first birthday card for a little girl. I used kraft cardstock (MY FAVORITE) for the base of my card. I took patterned paper and matted it onto green cardstock. I hand cut the layered cake and rolled a piece of paper to make the candlestick. Pop dots were used to adhere the cake to the card. The flame was also hand-cut and orange ink was used to accent the flame. I punched out 6 flowers to make the 3D flower and added a lime green button for the center of the flower. The number 1 was a die-cut from Cuttlebug. And finally "Happy Birthday" (Studio G, another addiction) was stamped in brown ink.
Thank you for viewing my first design team project! I look forward to many more!
