Love to Shop - Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Okay, first let me start off by apologizing for this eternally long post.....but you're gonna love these two kits.....I sure do! This is one of my assignments for Making Handmade Cards. The eKit is called Love to Shop. The images are adorable with several different girls and sayings to go with them! I chose Happy Birthday from Summer to start with. The printed papers are also from MHC, the eKit is called Flower Train.

I colored the images with my Copic markers. The really cool thing is.....each design comes in small, medium and large. These are the large size.

I'm still making these nifty flowers using my scalloped circle Nesties. Just cut out two of them, run one through your Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, then crumple up one that and leave the other one nice and smooth for the base. Stack the two together with the crumpled one on top and fasten with a brad.......tah-dah, a pretty paper flower!

If you like digi paper kits, you will love these two kits. There are lots and lots of different designs and colors to choose from. Lots of bang for your buck.....that's for sure!
I recently bought some little clear boxes from Papertrey Ink so I thought I'd put them to good use and fill them up with a sweet little card gift set. I just decorated the box with a pretty pink ribbon and a tag for a tad bit more fun!
I used one of The Cutting Cafe's printable stamp sets called A-Z is for, for the tag on the front of the box.
Okay, so tell you love 'em? I knew you would. Hee hee hee! This is just a tease, 'cause they are NOT out yet.....but go HERE and sign up for the newsletter and you'll be one of the first to know when it comes out! Okay?
THANKS for sticking with me all the way through this extra long post! See ya soon! HUGS!

It was worth reading the whole thing - those cards are gorgeous. Love the flower technique too. I was playing with a similar thing today too but with my punches - there's something very strange about scrunching up those precious papers though!!! I almost feel like it's blasphemous! lol.

Those are just wonderful...I'm a big fan of "digitals". It makes late-night creating so much easier!
