December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Pals Hop! This month, we're featuring Birthday themed cards and projects! I hope you enjoy the hop and the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with.

You've likely hopped over from Rae Harper at Wild West Paper Arts, I'm stop number 15 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Birthday paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!

Today I'm sharing a fun little project that I was excited to create for my hubby who celebrated his birthday on Friday. It's a little sparkly and maybe a little girly, but thankfully my husband puts up with my sparkles and wore it proudly. :) Perhaps it also helped that we didn't leave the house until after I asked him to take it off so as not to damage it! *Giggle!*

This birthday badge was made with some Pocketful of Posies DSP, which I scored with my Simply Scored tool to create a rosette. Then I layered some silver Waffle Paper, arranged in a circle, and added a cardstock circle, which I covered with Sticky Strip and Baja Breeze Glass Stampin' Glitter. I love the big chunks of glitter! I stamped the sentiment from SU!'s Bring On The Cake on Baja Breeze card stock and heat embossed it in silver. I cut the sentiment out and adhered it to my badge with glue dots. Then I added some pretty Baja Breeze satin ribbon and some glittery ribbon from my stash. Perfecto! I can't wait to make a girly pink one next!
