Birthday Layouts

Hi there!!  This is Candace from Candi O. Designs and I'm here to showcase a new Page Layout by SVG Cutting Files that will be available in store Friday ~ "Birthday Layout".
This page layout comes with both titles - Birthday Boy and Birthday Girl.  It was perfect to get both my kids birthday pictures scrapped!!  I used the new collection of papers from Echo Park Paper ~ Birthday Wishes which comes in both boy and girl colors.  Using this paper, I could keep the same layout design and just change the colors for each one.  The cut file comes with balloons but I love the new Jaded Blossom balloon die cuts so incorporated those as the balloons.  Another added touch, I used a tag from Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies to tie around each bow on the present mats to add names and ages.  These layouts were super fun to make and hope you enjoy my take on the page layout!!

Here is the "boy" version:

Don't you just love the cake!!!!  Super fun to make!!

Here's the "girl" version:

Another yummy cake!!!
 Here is a close up of the Jaded Blossom tag used around the bow on the presents. Makes it look like a gift tag!

Products Used:
SVG Cutting Files: Birthday Layout
Jaded Blossom: Birthday Dies and Mini Tag Dies
Paper: Echo Park Paper ~ Birthday Wishes Collections

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Cookies and Milk Treat

Hi everyone! It's Candace from Candi O. Designs ~ Guest Designer!  It's my day over at Jaded Blossom and I am sharing a project I made using the Monthly Spotlight stamp set, Milk & Cookies Revamp.

This is such a fun stamp set! There are so many possibilities with it! I found these cute glass milk jars which were perfect to add a tag and decorate with this set!

I used the Treat Tag Die for the base, then stamped the milk bottle and large cookie die on the SVG Outline that matches this set.  The sentiment I stamped right on the tag and then glued the milk bottle and pop dotted the cookie.  I tied the tag with tulle onto the "cookie filled jar" and then added another tag with twine from Mini Tag Dies 2 which I stamped with another sentiment from this set. Lastly I inserted a paper straw through the tulle to finish the look!! Perfect little gift for that cookie lover in your life! 

I hope you all liked my project for today and don't forget to get your own Milk & Cookies Revamp stamp set at a great price this month!

Jaded Blossom Stamp Release Blog Hop

Hey Everyone! 

Now if you're here from Candace you're in the right place, if you're just passing through start at the beginning because you don't wanna miss anything.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.

Here is what I made:

I found this gift card tin at Target and knew it would be perfect to "decorate" with the new Birthday Stamps and Dies!!  The top I used the candle from the new Birthday Dies and stamped one of the sentiments from Supersided Birthday Greetings on the flag die.
Inside, I used the Gift Card Die to hold the gift card on the inside of the tin and on the bottom, I decorated using the Tic Tac Toe stamp and new Birthday Candies 2 Stamps.  Because this holder is tin, I used small magnets on the back of the Birthday Candies to create an actual game that can be used over and over again!!  My daughter has claimed this........she loves to play Tic Tac Toe!!
