Birthday Creations, Vol. 3 Blog Hop

Hello Paper Craft Magazine friends! I'm joining in the blog hop today to celebrate the publication of Birthday Creations, Volume 3, available on July 18th. Leaving a comment on my blog post or any of the other participants (between now and Tuesday)  will enter you into a random drawing to win a free copy of the magazine.


Good looking cover, right? Hmmmm....I wonder if we know anybody who is a cover girl? Always an honor. The cupcake stand and strawberry boxes were so fun to make. I've got the rest of a strawberry party ensemble featured inside....as well as five other projects.  That was a happy mail day!



Also inside, are four different card sketches from the Go-To Gals. We were challenged to pick one and create our own card. I choose this one by Jennifer McGuire.

Here's my interpretation using PTI's Star Gazer Additions, Star Gazer Die Collection, Seeing Stars Dies, and Medium Scallop Border. Neon washi tape adds color to the negative die cut stars.

Thanks for joining me today. I'm linking up to Kayla Kepner. The following girls are participating as well.
