MORE exciting news . . . ABMTTC

I have some more EXCITING news to share . . .

I have joined the Design Team on the

With that news, I'm here to share my first post as a member of the Design Team
and announce that it's time for a new challenge with us on the

As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.
Three to five random winners are drawn and
each get to choose 3 set of papers from the Paper Pick Tab


Today I have used the Mix Up 2 digital paper by Lozzy at A Bit More Time To Craft to make a pair of birthday cards.  The good news is that this sheet is currently a freebie available on the Freebie TabEven better news, this digital paper comes in a set with eight, yes 8, different colours and all are perfect for cardmaking and scrapping, so if you're a lucky challenge winner, you could include this set as one of your Paper Picks.

I opened this pretty purple patterned digital paper in Silhouette Studio.  I sized the paper panel to make a 6" x 6" square card and sized another panel to 7" so that I could rotate and crop to 5" x 7" for the rectangle card.  I also used a cut file to make the Happy Birthday sentiment for the square card.  To make it a perfect colour match, I used the tool to pick the black and the lightest purple from the digital paper and used it to colour some blocks, large enough for the sentiments on both cards.  I printed the patterned panels on textured cardstock and trimmed to size.  I printed the colour blocks, used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and my Sizzix Big Shot to die cut the "celebrate today" sentiment.

My first card was quick, easy and is also quite pretty.

My second card was not quite as fast to make.

I adhered a sparkling rhinestone in the middle of each dot,
the popped the layered die cut sentiment in place with foam squares.
That's a LOT of sparkle.


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
