Birthdays at Paper Vineyard

Hello Everyone,

Another week, another project for Paper Vineyard. This week, our challenge was to make something for a birthday using the Kaiser Kraft Birthday line - and it couldn't be a card!! Well, since I have been trying my hand at mini-books, I decided to make one for this challenge. I was at a weekend crop here in Phoenix over the weekend and worked on it there. This post is picture heavy since I included shots of all the pages.

I used the Kaiser Kraft Birthday line of papers, stickers and stamps. I made the book from scratch using chipboard and binding the pages together with Bazzill paper. I also bound the outside of the book with Bazzill paper. I used cuts from several Cricut cartridges - Birthday Cakes, Birthday Bash, Carousel, George and Basic Shapes, Tags Bags Boxes and More, and Create a Critter. I also used twine, gems, chalk ink, ribbons, lace and buttons from my stash of goodies.

Let me know what you think and have a great rest of the week!

Paper Vineyard Card

This week, Paper Vineyard is celebrating the addition of a separate card area in the store. So our project for the week was to use any Paper Vineyard products, it just had to be a card! Here is what I came up with.The card base and layer paper are both from Bazzill. The large ice cream cone was cut from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. The other cones were from SEI borders called Fair Day. The line the top and bottom of the inside of the card, and I cut them apart for the outside. The stripes on the candle of the large cone is glitter paper, but I couldn't get my camera to pick that up. The inside is stamped with "You're so sweet!"

Let me know what you think! Have a good week.
