Memory Works Birthday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Memory Works Birthday Blog Hop. You’ve probably hopped over from the talented Jenn Bidwell’s blog. If you didn’t start at the beginning, feel free to go back to the Memory Works blog and see what you missed! There will be a prize* for one lucky winner! Just leave a comment at each blog you visit along the hop for more chances to win! You have until midnight to leave your comments. The lucky winner will be announced on the Memory Works blog on Wednesday, June 27th. *Note: The prize is sponsored by Memory Works.

Today I’m featuring some birthday cards from two BasicGrey collections: What’s Up and PB&J. I used the 6×6 pads and  chipboard elements from both collections, and pins and tags from PB&J. On the first card, I used paper and the “Happy Birthday” chipboard element from What’s Up. I added a little lilac twine from The Twinery just for fun. The “happy birthday” stamp is from the Stampin’ Up Just My Type stamp set. The next card uses the PB&J collection, except for “U,” which is from the What’s Up chipboard elements. The brads are from my stash, the arrows are from a Tim Holtz artistry stamp set, and the star was punched using a retired Creative Memories punch. The third card is made using papers from both collections. The flower punch is from Stampin’ Up and the “celebrate” stamp is by Close To My Heart. (I added a little bling with turquoise stickles by Ranger.) The final card includes a little tag from the PB&J tags and pins collection, and a PB&J chipboard element. (The lemondrop twine is from The Twinery, and the sentiment is from Close To My Heart.) Thanks for stopping by. I hope  you were inspired to create something today.  Don’t forget to leave your comment, and then hop on over to Kelly Holbrook’s blog for more beautiful inspiration!
