My Featured Stamp set from this release is 29 and holding, and with my 30th Birthday having just passed at the end of last year, this set reminds me that 1) I am not the only person that stopped aging at 29; and 2) I am (we all are) fabulous at 30; 40; even in our 50’s and beyond! 

29 and Holding


For my first project, a friend of mine is turning 30 right around the corner!  Looking back, I wish I had embraced the fact that I was heading into my 30’s with grace, charm, and some FAB d├ęcor. BUT I DID NOT. I refused to acknowledge it. No party + No dinner + No presents = No Birthday, right?!?

So, for my lovely friend Katrina’s Birthday, I wanted to embrace this huge move out of her 20’s! What better way, than with Chocolate, Strawberries and a Little Cool Whip adorned with this sweet little Sentiment, 30 and Fabulous!

 This set includes all numbers, so you can customize your projects to the recipient’s age!


Now, my friend Katrina, LOVES her High Heels and Jewelry, so I covered this 4x4 jewelry box in paper, and used coordinating paper for the “ribbon” around the edge of the box to stamp 30 and Fabulous around the Box. I used a left over Flag as an embellishment, and the High Heel comes from the Cricut Cartridge, Summer in Paris. I used a Tiger Stone beads and Sterling Silver findings for the Earrings. I hope that she likes them!!

I also wrapped up a plain candle to coordinate with this set in the same papers. I just LOVE this sentiment!!

Someone Like YOU Should be Celebrated Every Day

I used Stampin Up White Eyelets, and measured and marked where I needed to punch the holes for the Eyelets using my Crop-a-Dile. I laced it to look like a Bustier with Black Jute Cord, and embellished with Swarovski Crystal Beads and a Sterling Silver Star Charm. When she uses the candle, she will have to remove all of the Prettiness, but will be able to place the charm and crystals on a necklace to wear. 

I also created a few cards to have on hand for my friends as well for these special occasions!! The sentiments are just too cute not to!

I am simply in love with this card! The colors, the Candles and the sentiments are so bright and cheerful!!

How charming is the sentiment?
No matter how many candles are on the cake, You're still the one that lights up the room!  



And of course a little Cake and Ice Cream for this Birthday Girl!

Everything slows down with age, except the time it takes cake & ice cream to reach your hips!! 





The Cake is from the Imagine More Cricut Imagine Cartridge.
I also cut out the Layer to use on the inside of the card below. 


I used stickles to highlight some of the darling cupcakes, hearts and flowers on the background paper and used red and white twine to highlight the Cut.

Isn't this sentiment so true!? ;) I just LOVE it?!? As I get older, I realize this:
Old age is ALWAYS ten years older than us!

These girls are cut from the Cricut Imagine Cartridge, Better Together. I used the layer feature but cut of the phone cord and replaced it with twine that I inked black and a white piece of cardstock stamped with the Pink by Design Chevron Background Stamp. 


I used my white Galaxy Marker for the stitching on the Tag, and the tag is cut from the Cricut Imagines, pre-programmed shapes. 




Now this is my FAVORITE card that I made for this Hop. Who doesn't love a pair of heels? I absolutely adore Pink by Designs stamps sets featured in this Card. 

Shoe Addict

I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut from Pink by Designs mini-wrappers dies and added a Bo Bunny Embellishment
