5 & 12: Birthday card ideas from Stephanie!

Hi Crafty Friends!
Check out the absolutely adorable birthday cards that TCP designer, Stephanie has for you today!
Hey y’all! Hope this Tuesday finds you well & (if you’re in the US), getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday! It’s such a great time for being with family & giving thanks for all that we are fortunate enough to  have. And then, it’s time to gear up for Christmas! While I love the season & am really excited, we have some birthdays to celebrate first! My nephew has a birthday in November & my youngest nephew’s birthday
is on December 12. Leah’s birthday is December 10 & she will be 12 this year! Holy-time is flying!!!
So before I dive head first into the Christmas season, I made some birthday cards. Both feature flair & sequins from The Crafty Pickle.

I used the Birthday button flair set & the Winter Sequins mix for both of my cards.
For my second card, I started with sketch #111 fromCardabilities and made Leah’s birthday card
I love the shimmer of this “Happy Birthday” flair! It’s great for a 12 year-old girl!!
be sure to visit The Crafty Pickle shop to see these products, and more!
Now that these birthday cards are behind me, I can make more Christmas projects!!
Have a good one!

Life Is Beautiful!

Hi Everyone! 

Up on the blog today we have a terrific Project Life layout from Stephanie! Take a look!

Hey y’all! Hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday.
I have a PL spread to share today featuring flair and sequins from The Crafty Pickle!

I have used the Autumn flair and the Autumn Sequins mix. The flatter back of these flair buttons make them easy to add to my PL pages & they fit in my album without a ton of bulk! Check out the awesome selection in the store.

The two larger journal cards are from WRMK & the smaller “Gratitude” card is from MAMBI. Fall is one of my favorite seasons & I adore these photos from a trip to an apple orchard that our family likes to visit. The flair & sequins helped give the feel of Autumn to my page.
Thanks for visiting today. Keep crafty!!

Hi! My name is Stephanie Eaken & I am a 41 year old stay at home mom. My daughter is 11 & is in her first year of middle school (so far, so good!) & my son is a 7 year old second grader. We live in a suburb of Richmond, VA with my husband of 15 years. Drew & I met in my senior year of high school & have been together since!! We also have two dogs that we all adore & love spending time outside with.
I began scrapbooking (in the modern terms) about 11 years ago when my oldest was a baby. I have always dabbled in arts & crafts & used  to  love collecting momentos as a child to add to “my books”. My style is what I describe as casual-eclectic. I like  to try new techniques & play around with the latest trends. I am also on the design team for Stuck On U Sketches. You can follow my blog at www.stephanie-eaken.blogspot.com.
I am thrilled  to be on the team here at The Crafty Pickle and am so excited to create with the wonderful products they have to offer!!
