Birthday Bakery card

I haven't had much time for crafting, been busy with harvest. But I had made this card for a friends birthday.
This stamp set is from the Level 1 Hostess gift. A lovely set that I have used heaps.
The papers too are also from Level 1 Hostess pack: Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.
The background cardstock is Early Expresso run through the Lattice embossing folder,attached onto Confetti white cardstock.
The ribbon is Pear Pizzazz.
We have a team meeting next week so in my spare time I have beeen making team swaps. Something other than a card for a change. I'll show that next week.

Easel calendar

I have cased this Calendar from Kay Kalthoff blog.
Crafters Anonymous had a challenge to case a card or project and share so this is the one that I cased. Her easel calendar was attached to a box which I haven't done
( maybe the next calendar I will try and add that too).
This calendar uses paper from Play Date. Butterflies made from the Embosslits dies that go through the Big Shot.

I was inspire to do this scrapbook page from a layout from UStamp with Dawn.
The paper used is the Island Oasis dsp found in the Mini Catalogue. The words were made using the Timeless Junior Alphabet that goes through the Big Shot.

The heart circle has a strip of crimped Eyelet border round it. Hearts punched out using Heart to Heart punch.
