Welcome to Jenny's Big Birthday Blog-a-versary Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Teresa at thescrapbookingqueen.com, you're in the right place!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to Crazy About Cricut and start at the beginning.
The theme of this blog hop is Birthdays. Be sure to visit each blog for inspiration and fun BLOG CANDY.
I have this monster themed birthday pack to share with you today. These are for Jenny so I really hope she received them already! I made the card and my two sons put the notebook together. They said Jenny needed a gift (not just a card) and insisted that "EVERYONE" needs a notebook. :)
Here is the card. I used Mini Monsters for the two part red monster. All the monstery layers were cut using Post-it Craft Paper. I embossed the red layers and the blue horns.
I used Gypsy Wanderings for the card base (welded with my Gypsy). To make the card layers, I just resized the card shape by 1/4" for each mat.
The little speech bubble is from Create a Critter. I created the sentiment by combining "a simple hi" and "big hugs" from two different stamps in the same stamp set.
All the stamps are from Hero Arts "Big Hugs" set. The black and white ribbon is from Joann's (I think it's a wonderful compliment to my gel pen stitching).
This is the inside of the card... and the monster's tail! :)
Again, I embossed the red layer of the monster's tail. You can see how well the Post-it Craft paper embosses.
This is Jenny's notebook from my kids. They used the same paper I used for the cover. It's American's Traditions paper called "Game Day." I don't know if it's still available, it's been in my stash for a while. We used my Bind-it-All to bind the notebook.
This cute little monster is cut from paper from the DCWV summer paper pack and glitter paper for the party hat. Didn't my 8-year-old draw a wonderful smile! He used dimensional paint. My 6-year old added the googly eye. I added the gel pen stitches.
This is a little stamp we picked up at a garage sale. I think it's from a Close to my Heart set. I think the hand-written look is perfect for a child! :)
Thanks for visiting me today. For blog candy, I am offering a custom made notebook to two winners. Please leave me a comment to win.
