Mom’s Birthday Present

Published by at 6:12 am under My Creations

 Hello!! My mom’s birthday is on Thursday, so I made her this! She’s been wanting me to do something like this for awhile now! I am bringing it up to Jackson to surprise her! 🙂

I started by covering all the lacing cards in the Wanted paper by Cosmo Cricket (this is probably my ALLTIME favorite paper) and  sanded the edges with my Basic Grey Sanding Kit. I then covered all the Basic Grey Chipboard Monograms in Natural Ivory paper and sponged the edges. I KNEW I had to use my Pines set, so I decided which pictures I wanted where and which ones worked with the letters and sort-of went from there! 🙂 I hesitated whether or not to put the flowers on it since my boys are on there, but I figured it’s for my mom so it would be just fine! 😉






Stamps: Pines and Looks Like Spring (Stampin’ up!) Snap Stamps (Karen Foster)

Ink: Old Olive, Alwyas Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust

Cardstock: Natural Ivory, Chocolate Chip

Designer Paper: Calamity Jane, Kissin Kate, Buffalo Bill, Doc Holiday and Slue Foot Sue paper (Cosmo Cricket)
