ROYAL BLOG TOUR...

Hello and Welcome to my Creative Corner or should I say Castle...at least for the next three days. My name is Kendra Richardson. I hope to share some new ideas with you, or remind you of one's you've always wanted to try, but just haven't gotten around to yet. I hope that you leave this stop of the tour inspired!

The set I am featuring is called "Look Who's Turning"... and can be found in the current 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog on page 72. I chose this set with the idea that I wanted to share several Birthday ideas with you - SO ENJOY!

Click on any picture to enlarge it and see items better!



This is such a cute gift to give because we are all in need of birthday tags to stick on a present when we are in a rush & running out the door taking our kids to another paryt! This picture shows the mini box with a pull-out card hidden between the Designer Paper and the top of the box. It's the perfect place to write your birthday wishes...it slides in & out easily because of the tab. The box contains (6) tags using the animals in the stamp set and also stickers & paper from the Happy B-Day Simply Sent Kit. * Make sure to come back on Wednesday for Instructions/Measurments on how to create this project!













This shows a very cute and FUN TO MAKE Birthday Card that the recipiant is sure to LOVE! It also is deceiving...because this card can fold up and be put in the mail in our regular sized envelopes - NO extra postage! *Make sure to come back on Wednesday for Instructions and measurements so you can create your own!









This is my party invite....a Pop-Up Card. You can do so many things with this versitile set. I just LOVE it!









In this picture I am showcasing a small gift basket made from CS & DSP. You can give for a birthday treat or better yet, change the sentiment and give it as a party favor! The second item is another birthday card. I wanted to show you how cute this set is in bright & vivid colors like these from the Bold Bright Family. *Make sure to Bookmark my blog as a favorite and come back on August 3rd for a tutorial on how to make these cute party favors - they are SO EASY!





THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
Don't forget to bookmark my blog, because the links will disappear after the 28th. Also...you'll want to come back Wednesday, July 29th for a BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY & INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROJECTS that you won't want to miss! I hope that you were inspired and feel like stamping and creating now!! To be entered into the blog candy drawing...I have 3 rules;
1.) Leave a comment.
2.) Be sure to include your contact email
3.) Please, no Stampin' Up Demonstrators. Lets save the goodies for our customers.
HAPPY STAMPING,
KENDRA

BLOG CANDY INCLUDES: Stamps, Designer Paper, Ribbons, & Buttons!
