Birthday Gift Meets Scrapbooking Goodies

Colin was invited to one of his girlfriend's birthday parties.  Her name is Eva and she is the cutest little 3-yr-old in the world.  I wanted to get her a special gift.  Since she is a Montessori child, too, I knew she would love art stuff…

… with a scrapbooking twist, of course. 🙂

Colin and I headed to the store to collect papers and stickers and gems and pink stuff and glue and such.  We cut the 12×12 papers down to 6×6.  (I do this for Colin, too.  Makes it go farther.)  We filled a cute basket with the goodies.  I used Glossy Accents (the only glue that truly holds very well) to add Making Memories glittery letters to the front for her name. (Turns out this was a good choice – little Eva was sporting silver glitter shoes at the party.)  Add a flower and button.  Perfect gift for a cute girly…

Supplies: Hobby Lobby Basket, Making Memories glitter chipboard, flowers, buttons and Glossy Accents to hold it in place

And we needed a girly card to finish it off.  Decided to use the ultra-cute Stamping Bella butterfly.  I adore their stamps (and the owner!)… so cheerful and fun.  Something this world needs more of right now.  Used a Hero Arts greeting and background, Copic marker coloring and finished it off with a glitter pen.  Yep… I added my own little party hat…

By the way, I wanted to quickly introduce you to the works-with-any-style-project stamp.  My new best friend…


Off to work.  Have a great day.

(Oh, by the way… I think we have already found 10 children to collect cards for!  So excited.  Once it is all lined up, I will share the info.  Thanks!)
