Happy Birthday Card

Hi, everyone!
Today's card layout is from The Creativity Cave.
I used Stampin' Up's Night of Navy cardstock (love this deep, rich color) and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Papers. The sentiment is from Fairy Celebration.

Bag in a Box

Hi, everyone!
Today's project is a little Bag in a Box treat created using Stampin' Up products including the Envelope Punch Board. You can see a video tutorial by a sister SU demo here.


My favorite part of this project is the 3D flower. It was created by punching out 3 flowers from the SU Daisy Punch, inking the edges, rolling the petals up, and attaching the layers with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
