Happy July!

It’s July…wow! Half of the year is over already…time is just flying by!!


It’s a new month and I am going to challenge myself to blog once a day.  I have SO much stuff that I haven’t posted yet.  I went to a crop over the weekend and completed 15 single pages and 3 double page spreads plus I have lots of cards that I never shared either.  I’m going to try and alternate the cards/pages and some other stuff too!  Hopefully I can try to build up my readership again.


To kick things off, here are two birthday cards I made at a crop in early June~


Create a Cupcake June 1

This card I gave to my sister for her birthday…my nephew loved it, he pulled the cupcake right off!  Luckily it was an easy fix since I had it on pop dots.  The card layout is from a sketch shared on the Stampin’ Connection demo site.


Create a Cupcake June 2

The card layout for this card is from the 6/2 Studio Calico sketch challenge.


I used this fab stamp set and punch from Stampin’ Up:
