One of the fun things I’ve been getting to do for The Paperie is design some project kits. These come with everything you need to complete at least two layouts and two cards (or more) and very detailed, full colour instructions. Lots packed into a $30 kit! I showed you one a few weeks ago – Back 2 School – and here’s another one!

Molly had her 7th birthday in August so I had the perfect photos waiting when Wendy mentioned a Birthday Girl kit. The first one highlights how old she turned, a typical birthday pic that I try to take each year:

hello SEVEN

The fun parts here came from the title and embellishment cluster on the top of the LO. I added doodling to the alpha stickers, some fun sequins and wood veneer, and some taps of shimmer mist:

The next LO is all about cake because, come on, who doesn’t like cake?

it's all about the cake

I wanted to add pictures of all Molly’s past cakes so I made a little mini album that’s hidden behind the main photo:

My favourite part of this whole kit is the sticker cake:

Yes, I admit, I patted myself on the back for that one – love how it turned out!

Once the kit was completed, I discovered I had enough left over for a bonus LO, a 6×8 this time featuring an outtake picture:

hello birthday MONKEY

I added my usual touch to the sticker title, by doodling:

Of course, there are some birthday cards too!


The first one is pretty simple, with the touch of some glossy accents for the balloons, but the second one is a fun window card:


Aren’t all those stickers and alphas great? This is an awesome kit and I still had stickers left over to make more cards!

Hope you enjoyed and if so, keep your eyes open – we have some ideas for future projects kits too!
