The Celebration is On!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Today is our Birthday Bash sale and we want to give you some fabulous ideas for layouts and cards to celebrate the special day! 

First off, we have a layout from our own OMC designer, Lindsey!

Lindsey used papers from the You Scream, Ice Scream line from Doodlebug, as well as the Summertime line from Echo Park!

Don't you just love the sparkly "8"?  Lindsey made it using cork and glitter! She's always so creative :) 

Also, don't forget, you can always e-mail Lindsey directly about ANY of her amazing projects!  Just send an email to lindsfill @ with the title of the project as your subject line.  She LOVES getting questions about her projects!

Here's a cute layout from Imaginisce using their new B-Day Bash line (coming soon to OMC!!!)!

Time to blow out the candles!


Don't you just love the pop up stickers? 

Too cute! 

And of course, a simply adorable card idea from Sizzix (with instructions)!

The paper on the sparkly 8 yrs old layout is from the SEI Birthday Bash collection...not the one you have listed. I only know that because I have used almost every single page in that pack and not even for birthday layouts!!!!
