Peppa Pig

My great niece is turning three, and the birthday party theme is, you guessed it, Peppa Pig. After doing a little research on, you guessed it, Pinterest, I found lots of inspiration. I discovered a Peppa Pig cake plan. The plan was perfect for creating a Peppa Pig cut out. Even better, Stampin' Up! has perfect colors for Peppa Pig.

Summer Birthday

I found this layout design on Pinterest quite a while back. I finally sat down to create my version. Since we still don't seem to be getting a winter, again, this year, my mind seems to be wondering towards summer. Typically, I am not a snow person, but we really need some of that white stuff. When I should be looking at several feet of snow, I'm looking at bare ground.

Summer Fun

As I was making this card, I realized my last few cards were looking very similar: scene, mat, done! I have been enjoying stamping scenes, but I don't want to be in a rut. For this card, I just punched out a couple of squares, added some matting, and popped them up with dimensionals.

Birthday Blooms

It was a lazy, relaxing day today. The only thing on my "To Do" list was to play in my craft room. I thought I would have accomplished making more than one card, but I did have fun playing.

Because I needed to mask some of the flowers, I spent a lot of time cutting. Fortunately, I will be able to use them again and again.
