Birthday Wit

The Birthday Wit Stamp Set from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog lets you say happy birthday with a sense of humor.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp set!

I knew as soon as I first laid eyes on it, I had to have it.

BUT…

I think it can be easily overlooked in the catalog because it doesn’t have any pretty images with it…just pure and simple sayings that make me giggle.

Funny story…

Prior to being introduced to Stampin’ Up! and card making, I thought buying cards was a huge waste of money – I refused to do it!

I had to drive to the store, spend a substantial amount of time trying to find the “perfect” card not to mention the outrageous amount of money it cost…only to be read once and then thrown in the trash.

Isn’t it ironic that I now am in the business of cards…

But to my defense, I find card making very therapeutic and I love it when something that I have created brightens someone else’s day.

And it gives me time to relax, be creative and unwind from the craziness of the world.

This card only takes a few minutes and it it fun!!

ShowCASE Sunday Inspiration shared by Dawn Thomas. For details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #showCASEsunday

I love this little pizza box project in this image because … it is a mini pizza box and I love pizza!

But seriously, it is the perfect little box for gift giving and the possibilities for decorating it are endless.

Although, I love the pizza box and I have them, I choose to go in a slightly different direction.

I opted to use the Tags & Trimmings Bundle to re-create the project in a pillow box form vs the original pizza box. I have to say, I like the end result. What do you think?
