Balloon Adventures Birthday Card

I love celebrating birthdays.  It is so much fun to let someone else know in a special way that they are unique and loved, and you just couldn’t imagine this world without them.  Birthday cards on the other can often be hard to find or even make one that is of a kind or unique.  The Balloon Adventures bundle is a game changer. It makes super cute birthday cards quick and easy.

DIY Planner Charm and February Planner Spread


If you are into planners, I am sure you have seen all the super cute planner charms out there. I love them, but I know I want to be able to change them out, and I can’t be constantly buying new ones. So I decided to diy my own February planner charm. 

1. Cut a 3.5 x 1.75 piece of flirty flamingo cardstock. Punch the end with the triple banner punch.

2. Punch a 1.25 inch circle out of designers series paper, and adhere to flirty flamingo strip using tear and tape.

3. Use the fine tip glue to adhere two wooden hearts to the cardstock.

4. Punch a hole in the top of the tag, and tie a piece of cucumber crush thick bakers twine from the tag to the mini white paper clip.

Also, check out my short video showing how I use stamps in my February Happy Planner Spread.

My YouTube Channel

My wonderful husband and kids got me a light box kit and a phone tripod for Christmas.  I was super excited, because both gifts will help achieve some of my new crafts goals. Notice I said goals and not resolutions.  A few years back Money Saving Mom started detailing the goal setting she did at the beginning of each year.  I was so inspired by the idea of switching from resolutions (that usually are more like dreams) to realistic goal setting.  Two of my crafting goals for 2017 are to post regular videos on my new YouTube Channel, and to take nicer pictures on this blog.  

I hope you enjoy the videos I will be posting throughout the year.  Here is my first video:
