Happy Birthday!

Did you think I meant a little baby? Hehehe, nope. But I have been doing a lot of pre-baby prep that has nothing to do with baby. Like stock piling cards. I made a bunch of my new go-to thank you cards, and decided to whip up some birthday cards too. My computer is, sadly, in pieces, so I’m typing this up on my little presentation laptop I use with clients and I’m not too sure of colors so if things look wacky, well, you’ve been warned.

I am loving this glitter paper from American Crafts, called POW! It is super thin and easy to punch and Tuesday and I totally fought over this blue piece when we were scrapbooking together. I caved and gave her a chunk of it because it doesn’t shed glitter at all and is actually thin enough for her to cut (she has a mini trimmer in her “stash” and a pair of safety scissors). Did I mention that I gave up a drawer in my craft room so she could have her own stash. I am the nicest mom EVER.

Also I found this easel in Grandpa’s stuff when we were getting ready for the garage sale. It’s so cute and little and I totally love it. I wonder why he had it?

The labels are from Martha’s line at Staples (thanks Sarah!), which I ran through my typewriter. My desk looks totally old school with a massive typewriter sitting there instead of a computer. I am actually getting a lot done with out it though. Like some actual layouts (these were the scraps). I do wish I had it to get caught up on Project Life though. I’m afraid if I don’t before the baby I am in trouble.

Do you stock pile cards, or other handmade things? I love doing this because it’s so much easier to get things done all at once rather than pulling out all your supplies for one card.

  1. Ah Amber, again you are amazing! To answer your question: No I do not stockpile cards, but I always mean to! Glad you are stocking up on everything! I bet you will have more time at first than you think. Babies sleep a lot in the beginning—-unless you name them Tuesday Garrison……..

  2. These are awesome! And way to go on planning ahead and stocking up! No, I do not stockpile cards, but I should. The little easel is just darling…great find!
