SSINKspiration Birthday: Party Wishes Project Life Style

Happy Friday!  I am completely in love with the great products in this year's Occasions catalog, if you've seen it you know what I mean.  One of the first things that really caught my eye and I knew I had to have were the products in the It's My Birthday suite, come on birthdays, bright colors, what's not to love?  Today over on the  SSINKspiration blog it's all about birthdays (let's be honest it's something we celebrate all year long and need to be ready for) but instead of a card I decided to change things up and show a couple of cards I made that would work perfectly for Project Life memory keeping, using these awesome birthday products.

I made a 3x4 and 4x6 card that coordinate and the great thing about doing this is that you can completely personalize your cards for the colors and occasion that suit you.

For the 3x4 card I started with a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the Party Wishes stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I added a couple of pieces of designer series paper from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack (this package has everything, and it comes in 12x12 which is awesome!  I used my Triple Banner Punch to make the flag tails and then added a bow I tied using the Baker's Twine Combo Pack for an accent.

For the 4x6 card I wanted to make it so you could either add a picture, or add journaling depending on your needs.  I started with Sahara Sand Cardstock and then added a piece of the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  For the decorative piece I used the same Party Wishes stamp set and stamped the cake in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the saying (really this saying is awesome and I completely agree!!!) using the Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then cut it out using the Big Shot and Circle Collection Framelits.  I used the same framelits to cut out a mat using Crushed Curry cardstock and then attached it the card with dimensionals (I used dimensionals on the far right side only so you could slide a picture under part of the circle if you wanted when you were making your page).  For a final element I tied a knot using the Mint Macaron Lace Trim and attached it using a glue dot.

The beauty of these cards is that they are really easy to make, and if you decided you didn't want them for a Project Life page you could easily add them to a cardbase for an easy card that will still impress!  Don't forget Sale-a-bration is going on so for every $50 you spend you get an item from the SAB brochure for FREE (this is a great time to add the items from the Occasions catalog to your stamping toolbox and earn something for FREE!!!)
