Sending You Sunshine & a Scrapbook Page

Taking a break from Christmas for a clean and simple coffee card and sharing a scrapbook page.  I love this sentiment. It is perfect for all occasion cards that you have no reason to send.  Happy Mail!

Now that the card is complete I think maybe I should have used red for the Starbucks red holiday cup.  Maybe on the next one!  The Coffee First Dies give you any color cup you want!

Now for the scrap page.  I make scrapbook pages all the time and share them on my  Instagram Stories.   But… I often forget to share them here.  (oops!).  

Cottage Bouquet scrapbook, Spellbinders FSJ, Stamp with Jill

We had family pictures take at the end of August right before my boys left for College.  Love this shot of my girl and Gus!  I used the Cottage Bouquet stamp set and Die for the Flowers!

The flowers are colored with various shades of pinks, yellows and blue copic markers.  I did not keep track of the copic colors I was just grabbing and coloring.  

Here is a Holiday page I made last year.  and a Birthday page here.

It Was A Sweet 16 Birthday

When you have been stamping and making cards for 13+ years, my kids have come to expect a special handmade birthday card on their special day.  Most of the time I am a few days late….and my daughter always reminds me not to be 9 months late. (yeah that did happen once!)

Here is the card I made my Daughter for her Sweet 16.  She loves all shades of pink, gold and the pool shades of blue- Cool pool and Pool Play!  So that is what I chose for her card.

No stamps for the front, it is all die cutting for this handmade birthday card!  The birthday die cuts for the Happy (hostess gift) and the designer frames for the gold birthday!  LOVE the mirror gold paper!  sooooo shiny!

I added the rectangle die cuts with the piercing for some added detail.  I love a clean crisp white card!  Of course she loved it!  I stamped a cute sentiment (from the FSJ set Celebrate Everything) on the inside but wrote all over the inside of this fun handmade birthday card before I realized I forgot to take a picture!

In addition to the colors she loves all things tropical.  Leaves, pineapples, toucans, sloths!  I decided to get her scrap page done right away!  We had birthday and gold balloons in her favorite colors!

This is the Playful Prints designer paper pack.  So many fun designs in there for both cards and scrapbook pages.

There are 2 products on the card that are not listed below.  The Tiny dot embossing folder is a Bloom Benefit and you can earn that for free with a $75 order.  The Birthday Words Die set is a Hostess Exclusive and you can earn that for free with a qualifying order as well.  Free stamping supplies are the best supplies! I also forgot the pool play card stock.
