Parisian Love and Birthday Blog Candy!

Posted on

I don’t know about you, but I fell in love with the little 3X3 note on page 80 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  I liked it so much I’m including it as one of my class projects.  It’s so easy to make, but I think it still has a lot of WOW factor to it.  The base is a 3X6 piece of Baja Breeze card stock scored at 3 inches.  The paper is the new Parisian Breeze Specialty paper.  I just love this paper and have almost used up my entire package already.  Above the designer series paper is a row of paper piercing.  To make the main image it is stamped in Basic Gray on Whisper White card stock.  I used my AquaPainter to color it in and then I cut it out.  I mounted it with dimensionals on a 1 3/4″ square of Old Olive card stock and then used more dimensionals to attach it to the card. 

So do you want to know what today’s Blog Candy is?  I have a brand new, never been mounted For a Friend stamp set.  It is a Level I Hostess set from the last catalog and it consists of 6 stamps.  Since it’s my birthday to enter I want to know what is your favorite way to spend your birthday.  Simply leave a comment on this post answering my question and you will be entered for a chance to win.  I will randomly draw 1 winner on Wednesday, March 4th.  I will have more blog candy throughout the month as I celebrate.

  1. I love reading your blog and seeing all the cute ideas you come up with! Happy Birthday! My favorite way to spend my bday is going out to dinner with my family and then just hanging out with them maybe playing a game all together. And if I am real lucky sometime on my day I like to try to fit a little crafting in.

  4. Oh HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENN! I hope your day is EXTRA special and you are spending it with your loved ones! I’m sure your boys are going to spoil you rotten 😉

    Your card is fabulous and as I look at it, I think it would make a great gift card set!! Thanks for sharing!

    My fave way to spend my birthday is to just relax with my family. Since my birthday is December 22nd, it’s always so busy at that time of year. It’s nice for us to be able to sit down and have a nice dinner and CAKE 😉 Christmas day we all go seperate ways so my birthday sort of ties in with my family Christmas celebration. Which…I don’t mind!

    Enjoy your day and thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Happy Birthday to you! My favorite way to spend my birthday is to have my kids sing to me first thing in the morning along with my mom who calls from WY then I usually have lunch with friends and dinner out with my family. It’s usually a low key event and always ends with a piece of the white chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory here in CA. MMM! Hope your day was terrific! Thanks for the chance to win!
    Hugs,
    Elizabeth

  19. Happy Birthday!!! I like to start by sleeping in on my birthday. That’s right – do NOT wake up Mommy! Then a great cup of coffee in a bubble bath. Once I do get up and about, I’m ready for a breakfast served by hubby and DD. My sister makes handmade cards for hubby (each occasion is covered); so I know I’ll have something nice to put on the mantel. My DD always makes me a sweet card on regular paper, but glitter glue and punches are marvelous. Later a nap and dinner out. What a perfect birthday!

    Congrats on your Special Day! I always enjoy my Birthday doing things I really enjoy but rarely get to do. Like massage, pedicure, dinner with Family and Friends, shopping at my favorite stores – I do as many as I can on my Special Day 🙂 “Cause that day should be all about YOU ;0)

  23. I have a friend who’s birthday is 3 days after mine. We have lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then go shopping. Our favorite store to look in is Williams&Sonoma. We sample all the goodies and by things for Thanksgiving dinners. We normally top off the day with a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

  28. Happy Birthday! Mine was Monday, the 2nd. I LOVE it when it’s a simple and easy day. DH makes dinner, does a bit more of the daily “work”, and I get to do whatever I want. (I spent it this year in my brand-new Certainly Celery craft room!) Hope you had a great day!
