Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge


It's the Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop!  For this month, we've been asked to post our favorite project of 2011 and then create a new project that was inspired by the first!


My favorite project that I created last year with my Papertrey Ink goodies is this birthday card I made for my mom.  I was so excited when Background Basics:  Newsprint came out with my mom's birthday  (March 10th) built right into it!  I also love this card for the bright cheery colors and the fun flowers.  You can see more details about it in my original post.


For my new project, I carried over the colors, background stamp and flower theme to create a birthday tag using the Tag Sale #3 Die.


I mixed it up with the flowers this time using felt and real buttons.


I just love this sentiment from Birthday Bash Sentiments, especially how it pops with the white embossing on royal velvet cardstock.

Be sure to stop by Nichole Heady's blog to see a lot more fun projects!

Here are the products that I used for the birthday tag:

I love the card you made for your mom. The color palette is perfect and I have yet to use my BB Newsprint, but I will soon.

Off to add those button dies to my cart.

I can see why this card from 2011 is a favorite and inspired the tag project! Both are just adorable. I think I may have to incorporate the bb:newsprint for a few b'day cards for my stash. Thanks for the inspiration!
