Hello, Thursday, and hello crafty friends! I have been having so much fun this week sharing the amazing projects our Creative Team cooked up to help our awesome Shipping Manager, Meredith, get ready for her triplets’ 8th birthday party. As you know (if you’ve been following along), Meredith is not an expert (well, she certainly is an expert at keeping organized and at always having a smile on her face) when it comes to crafting, but she’s game to try some new things. She does own a few of our products and wanted to see what could be done with our Block Party – Party die. She asked and our designers answered!
Meredith asked that the designers keep things gender neutral or easily changed up as the triplets are made up of two boys and a girl. I think both Jen Shults and Noriko Fairchild delivered! In Jen’s sample above, I love how she made the “8” the star of the show with our Just a Number die set and Pinking Circle Stacklets.
Noriko’s card is a die-cut dream and a wonderful example of a card that can be changed up quickly and easily with simple color choice. With our Birthday Treat Toppers, Noriko arranged the cute die-cut pieces (which can also be used to top cupcakes!) over her Oreo cardstock background. She added little “8”s from our Whimsy #’s — the perfect touch.
Noriko used a glimmer pen over the entire card for a fun bit of sparkle and she told me that it really shimmers in person!
Just a reminder, time is running out on our SALE on TE Storage solutions. The sale ends Feb 2, so get shopping! Visit our Storage section HERE!
Drop in tomorrow as we close out our Staff Selections week with Meredith! Have a joyful day!
