Birthday Memories Card: Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop! We are a group of 12 demonstrators from all over the world who have teamed up to bring you a bundle of 12 incredible tutorials each month. Welcome to Canada

This month all of our projects feature products that have JUST been released with the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and I can tell you that you won't want to miss this months bundle!
There are three ways you can get your hands on this 65 page bundle of 12 tutorials:
  1. Place an order of $50 or more in my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Store using the monthly hostess code: 96WQZB4M and I'll send it to you for free as my thanks for placing an order.
  2. Be a member of my awesome team of Canadian demonstrators, the Inkin' Elite. Did you know that when you sign up to be a demonstrator in June you can choose $165 in items from the NEW Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and pay only $135 (and free shipping too!). It's a fabulous time to join the Stampin' Up! family. Click HERE to join the fun.
  3. Purchase the tutorial for $20 CAD. All currencies accepted. PayPal will do the conversion for you.
*Tutorial will be sent within 48 hrs to the email address listed on your PayPal account

My card today uses the same suite of projects that I used for my tutorial bundle project - however it is not THE project in the tutorial bundle. You won't find Tutorial Bundle projects on my blog, facebook, instagram, or pinterest - ever! Insider info alert: my project this month is a birthday gift card holder. Eek! It's so cute.

Now let's look at some details on today's card:
I used my Aqua Painter and a selection of my ink pads to watercolour my images and discovered that the brand new Powder Pink In Color is the PERFECT caucasian skin tone! Score! 

I also wanted to share this little tip with you regarding the Birthday Memories Designer Paper. It has the cutest little images that you can die cut with framelits, but don't throw out the surrounding scraps. 
You simply just cover up the hole with another element of your project.

You'll find a complete supply list at the end of today's blog post and I would be thrilled to welcome you as one of my VIP customers. 
I spoil my customers because I'm so incredibly thankful they've chosen me as their Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. So when you shop with me in June, get ready to be spoiled too! 
  • Order $50-$99.99 and I'll send you the brand new Clear Faceted Gems (you must use the hostess code if your order is under $200 before shipping & tax)
  • Order $100 or more and I'll send you the brand new Glitter Acrylic Shapes AND the Clear Faceted Gems (you must use the hostess code if your order is under $200 before shipping & tax)
  • Order $200 or more (before shipping & tax) and you will get to choose your own Host Rewards before checkout AND I will send you the Clear Faceted Gems and Glitter Acrylic Shapes. DO NOT USE THE HOSTESS CODE if you'd like to choose your own rewards. I cannot add them for you later.
Shop in Canada with me!

  1. Your card is amazing Alison ;o)
    I do that to with the dsp or cardstock.

  2. We've seen so much of the baker man. I thought I'd throw up if I had to see him again! Guess WHAT! I didn't throw up and I love this new baker's man. Great job on making him there. I really like this card. Thanks again for making him new again!
