Guest Designer At Inking It Up Crazy!

I am so honored to have been asked to be a Guest Designer on Kassidy's month long Birthday Bash (ok, truth is I begged her). Kassidy is giving away quite a few gifts just for leaving comments on posts. Even if you've missed a few days, I encourage you to comment on previous postings. She won't be drawing until the party is over.

Today is the day for patriotic inspirations. I was originally going to create birthday invitations because my son will be one (1) on the 4th of July. I decided not to do a "4th" theme for the birthday so I chose to do a layout for the Birthday Bash. I like doing 8 x 8 layouts because they are smaller and not as intimidating as a 12 x 12. I found I can get an 8 x 8 done much quicker and get the same satisfaction as doing a 12 x 12.

Yes, that's a toothpick pinwheel:-)

There is no shadow for the firework cut so I made my own by cutting them at two different sizes so it looks like a shadow (silver paper)

For this layout I used:

  • K & Company "Americana" specialty paper
  • Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge
  • Independence Day Cricut Cartridge
  • Stampin' Up ribbon
  • Stampin' Up Fun In The Sun
  • Stampin ' Up Simple Serif Alphabet
  • Pop Dots
  • Stickles
