Creation Station Blog Hop 'Birthdays'

Welcome to the March Creation Station Blog Hop! You may have hopped to me from Mikaela in the UK, or have hopped back to me from Julie in the UK - aren't their creations amazing??? Now you are visiting me in Australia!
This months Blog Hop is all about 'Birthdays'. There are so many beautiful products to get your Birthday creations happening, and the first 14 pages in the Occasions Catalogue have the perfect products for you. 
The 'Birthday Bouquet' Suite was my pick... think Confetti, Balloons & Ice Cream Cones in tones of Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron & Pool Party.
There were so many ideas that popped into my mind, and I could not wait to use the super cute 'Bow Paper Clips Embellishments' - they are really super cute!, the 'Pool Party Glitter Ribbon', and the 'Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper' is just so beautiful. 
OK - I will show you the creations I came up with...
A Confetti Birthday card & coordinating Gift Box using the 'Tiny Treat Boxes' (25 Kraft Gift Boxes measuring 5.1cm x 5.1cm x 5.1cm) The 'Pool Party Glitter Ribbon' beautifully finishes both of these creations.
Mint Macaron Balloons and 'Rhinestone Jewels' for that little bit of bling. A little touch of 'Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim' and a 'Bow Paper Clip'.
The trio of cards were really simple to make. You can make 6 cards from 1 sheet of 12" x 12" DSP. Below are the measurements for my 'Birthday Bouquet' Birthday cards.
Kraft Cardstock Base: 14.8cm x 10.5cm (5.8" x 4.1")
Whisper White mat: 14.3cm x 10cm (5.6" x 4")
Cardstock mat: 13.7cm x 9.2cm (5.4" x 3.6")
DSP: 13.5cm x 9cm (5.3" x 3.5")

 I needed some Happy Birthday Gift tags in my stash. With some Blushing Bride cardstock, strips of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper & Gold Foil, some coordinating sequin trim and the 'Bow Paper Clips', I created these little darlings.
And these 'Ice Cream Cone' Gift tags using Mint Macaron. So sweet!

I hope you have been inspired to create your Birthday creations with the beautiful 'Birthday Bouquet' Suite. There are so many amazing creations for you to see from the Creation Station Design Team - keep on hopping... and thankyou for visiting my blog. D x

  2. Denita: These projects are great. I love it when the DSP can be the star of the card and you've done a great job combining it with stamped sentiments and embellishments. I love the gift tags, too, particularly the touch of DSP or glimmer behind the paper clip bows. Super cute!!
