Creative Circle April Blog Hop -#Imbringingbirthdaysback


In honor of Shannon West’s (from Stampin Up) campaign – I’m Bring Birthday’s back – this month’s Creative Circle Blog Hop is a darling, perpetual calendar!

Creative Circle 4:2016 group

The box has two cubes that can be rotated for the days of the month (remember that the 6 is also the 9), a flip top for the months, and a space int he back to hold your birthday cards so you can actually mail them out!  (I am the worse!)

Creative Circle 4:2016 side

I used the Whisper White Heavy card stock and the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Pack to make mine.  This paper stack has 48 sheets of double sided paper in it!  My balloons on the front are from Balloon Celebration and are punched out with the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Rose Wonder

This card uses the bow from the Cutie Pie Thinlit, more It’s My Party paper and the Elegant Dot embossing folder.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Picture Perfect

This card uses the Picture Perfect stamp set and Blushing Bride.

Creative Circle 4:2016 Happy Birthday Everyone

And last, but not least, this card uses the Bokeh technique.  You can find it on Splitcoast here.

Creative Circle Design Team March Blog Hop


This is a special blog hop!  In April, the Creative Circle Team will be doing a Make the Rounds class the day before the Stampin Up On Stage event in Salt Lake City AND doing a Kit To Go option.   Here’s a sneak peek of the class.  It includes the box and 3 cards-



This is the card holder/box for the class.


For this month’s challenge  I’m going to show you an alternate way to use the kit from the upcoming class.

For this design I used the box, fence and grass from the kit. The Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper is from the Occasions Mini The eggs are made with the Oval Framelits.  This is the side view –

The “flaps” are only attached on the bottom so the box opens like this –

I used a small piece of velcro to close the top of the box.  Here’s another design –

The stamp set is Balloon Celebration from the Occasions Mini.  I used the Balloon Bouquet punch for the balloons.  It opens the same way.
