Birthdays – Who Keeps Track?


I haven’t used the Birthday Basics designer series paper in some time now and I figured I should break out with it because I have some catching up to do with a few birthday cards.  I lost track of the dates.

Click here to view all the cards I’ve made with this paper.  There are kids cards and masculine cards in there that you can copy and share with all your friends.


Lesson Learned:  Card making has taught me that there are three rules we can follow when we are making cards.  It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced card maker either.  The three rules are:

  1. Color (use your color coach to help if you are like me with no sense of color-LOL)
  2. Shape (use any shape – circles, squares, or any framelit)
  3. Texture (embossing folders are perfect)

What is your go to designer series paper?  Leave a comment below with your favorite paper regardless of what brand you use.

If you could pass this post along to at least one friend that would be great!

My whole purpose of this blog is to share my simple handmade cards with as many people as possible and I can’t do it without your help, so go on and share.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  You can also support me by following my paper journey and subscribing to receive FREE blog updates!
