Birthday Bright Project Kit

Project kits! I just love kits! Opening the box, looking through all the fun supplies inside and knowing that in a short time I'll have some adorable projects and that time was saved because I didn't have to design the projects, pick out the papers, stamp sets, ink and accessories. The work was all done for me! The Birthday Bright Project Kit is one of those amazing kits that I couldn't wait to get my hands on and put together.

The kit makes a total of 12 cards (4 each of 3 designs) and 12 tags (4 each of 3 designs).

Please note: The Birthday Bright Kit Class that was originally scheduled for Saturday, May 20th has been postponed. We're going to be having a Retirement Party instead. Can you believe the Retirement List will be out on April 10th? It's already time to say "goodbye" to some of our favorite stamp sets and accessories.

Card #1 - Candles Shaker Card
Confetti included! How fun is that?

Card #2 - Wish Big Banner Card
Make cute little banners to adorn the front of your card.

Card #3 - Celebrate
So pretty and bright! I love the way the cake piece sits on top creating a bit of a "shadow box" effect.

The Tags:
Wouldn't these tags look adorable on a gift bag or box? They're super quick to put together but very cute!

Helpful Tips for the Birthday Bright Project Kit:

  • You'll need a few additional supplies to create this kit just like the pictures I've shown:
    Birthday Bright Stamp Set
    Coordinating Ink Pad Colors: Emerald Envy, So Saffron, Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black
  • I found that the little pennants on card #2 need to have a glue dot placed between the folds of the sticker. The stickers are handy because they simply fold over the twine but a glue dot helps not only keep them closed but also keeps them stuck to the card base (I personally didn't want mine moving all over but you can leave them free to flutter in the breeze, if you like).
  • Make one set of cards (or set of tags) at a time. I stamped all the pieces for one card and then worked on just that one set of cards until they were all finished.
  • Invite a friend over to make the kit with you! What's more fun than gathering with friends to make cards together? One friend could be stamping the pieces of one set of cards while you work on another set. Divide and conquer!
  • Keep all your cards and tags in the beautiful box they come in. Or, put a gift inside the box for the birthday boy or girl and then you'll have a coordinating card and tag to go with it!
Project kits really can make creating and crafting so quick and lots of fun! The Birthday Bright Project Kit is no exception. It will only be around until May 31, 2017 so get your hands on one (or more) today!

Happy Stamping,
