Kelly’s Stamping Friends – Birthday Blog Hop

Paper Adventures Header

I am so excited to be taking part in Kelly’s Stamping Friends Birthday Blog for the first time. If you have arrived here from Julia Quinn I know that you would have seen an amazing project.

A testimony to Kelly’s talent and creativity is to see how many demonstrators immediately put their hands up to be involved as soon as the blog hop is announced.  I feel very privileged to be a part of this amazing group.

I have had my design planned for quite a while, it is based on a tutorial by Jackie Bultje, also known as The Pampered Stamper. I almost had to completely change my plan as Mr. Australia Post wasn’t playing nice and I was thinking that my new goodies wouldn’t arrive in time.  Fortunately the BBB arrived yesterday afternoon and I was able to finish my design.

I really like the style of this Double Point fold card, and there is room for three lots of sentiments, one of which is hidden.  I used the Everything is Rosy stamp set and dies, and the Stitched Nesting labels from my pre-order, I think both of the items are going to get a huge workout in my craft room.

A big Happy Birthday Kelly and I hope you enjoy your special day … week…month.  Is this your birthday card, well you will just have to wait and see.

Happy Crafting
