Class by Lisa & Prize Drawing #2

Here's some fun Birthday facts from Lisa:

What is your favorite birthday cake? Strawberry & Cream filled

What was our most memorable birthday?
All of our birthday parties growing up were family parties. On my 8th birthday though, my parents let me have a bunch of friends over for a birthday party. It is still the one party that I remember with clarity.

Do you like surprises?
Definitely!

How do you like to celebrate?
With my family. We have a birthday tradition of going to a Mexican restaurant in town that makes you wear a HUGE sombrero while they sing to you. The singing is followed by sopapillas. YUM!

Lisa created a fun Birthday Party set for you (click on photos for larger view).......Enjoy!

Prize #2 is posted below the class instructions, make sure to post your answer to the question for a chance to win the prize.

Birthday Banner, Thank You Gift Box & Invitation by Lisa Dorsey

Supplies Needed to complete this class:
Sweet Chips Chipboard Rectangle Album by Crafty Secrets
Urban Prairie Weather Vane Paper by Basic Grey
Prudence Discretion Pattern Paper by Crate Paper
Birthday Girl Dots/Aqua Paper by My Mind's Eye
Class Act Green Apple Die-Cut Paper by Art Warehouse
Framboise Pattern Paper by SEI
Many Thanks Stamp by Lizzie Anne Designs
Solid Color Baker's Twine by Martha Stewart Crafts
Paperie Greenhouse Trims by Making Memories
Tuxedo Paper Frills by Doodlebug Design Inc.
Bubblegum Craft Knife by Doodlebug Design
Scor-It 12.75" Board Scoring Tool
Scotch Pop-Up Foam Circles
Yellow and Black Cardstock

Instructions for Banner:
1. Cut each page from the Sweet Chips Album in half.

Lisa Notes: I just adore pattern paper. You will rarely see a project of mine that has less than two pieces of pattern paper on it. I know that combining pattern papers can be a little bit scary for some people. A good example of this would be the birthday banner I have made for this class. I used 5 different pattern papers for each section. A good way to ensure that the patterns don't overwhelm each other is by breaking them up with a contrasting color like I did with the black. Also keep in mind that you want to vary the sizes of the patterns. You do not want to put a bunch of really small patterns close together.
2. Trace the chipboard on the back of each pattern paper and cut out. Attach paper to the chipboard and ink the outside edges.
3. Using Word Art in Microsoft Word, print the outline of each letter in the word Birthday onto yellow cardstock. Cut out the letters allowing a bit of yellow around the outside of the letter. Attach to chipboard with pop dots.

4. Tie the individual pieces together with ribbon and attach a button using red baker's twine.
Instructions for Thank You Gift Box:

1. Trace the template (please email us for a copy) onto yellow cardstock and cut on the solid black lines. Score and fold on the dotted lines.

2. Cover the sides and flaps with pattern paper; ink the edges.

3. Cut a one inch strip of the pattern paper and mat in yellow. Cut the edges with decorative scissors; attach to the front of the box.

4. Print an oval that is slightly larger than the sentiment onto pattern paper. Stamp the sentiment inside the oval; cut out oval and attach to the front of the box using pop dots.

5. Tie the box shut with ribbon; attach button with baker's twine.
Instructions for Invitation:

1. Create a card that measures 5.25" x 4" out of black cardstock.

2. Cut a piece of yellow paper that is slight smaller than the card. Cut a piece of blue paper with decorative scissors and attach to the bottom of the yellow cardstock.

3. Cut a piece of pattern paper to measure 4" x 3"; ink edges. Layer a strip of Basic Grey paper over the top.

4. Machine stitch the yellow onto the card and tie ribbon around the bottom of card.

5. Use one of the tags from the chipboard album and create sentiment tag; ink edges and add red brads.

Fun Birthday Fact: The birthday game Pin the tail on the Donkey has been traced back to 1887.

Quiet dinner, dessert...with just my hubby, or our immediate family. I'm not really big on over the top parties, etc.

~Lea

Fiona Whitehead said...

My favourite way to celebrate my birthday now is for all of us, and the dog, to go to a quiet beach somewhere - We then find a nice pub and sit by a roaring fire and have a nice meal. Can't wait!

Toni said...

A little shopping and getting together with my family. Nothing too crazy!

EMTsweeetie said...

I love to celebrate my birthday by doing something special during the day (maybe a hike, picking strawberries, something simple) and then dinner with family and/or friends.

Erika M. said...

I like to go to dinner with my family and come back and have cake and ice cream at my parent's house.

Tammy said...

My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is to have my children, hubby and other family members around at some point in the day. The rest of the day is to do what I want to do all day long. Like craft and not have to worry about the phone, housework or any other motherly duty.

ms.cheryl said...

Now that my nest is empty i prefer to work on my birthday so i'm not alone. My kids are out of the house and on there own and seldom have the money to buy a gift so i usually get a card and a phone call. Makes for a sad day if i let it. My coworkers usually make my day. Thanks, ms.cheryl

whoistracy said...

I'm not big on parties or anything. I just like to go out to dinner with my hubby and family and spend the time together. That's what it's all about!

My best stamping girlfriend & I like to take a stamp store road trip to Chicago for the weekend. We have done it several times, so we have figured out all of our favorite places. Such a great way to spend a birthday.

Kimmie said...

my favortite way to celebrate is to have a break from it all, a day for me, no cooking, cleaning...get to do what i want

Karen said...

Favorite way to celebrate is dinner (the kind that I don't have to make) with family. Love it when my kids come over and cook for me, better than going to a restaurant.

Lori said...

I love to celebrate with my family. The kids always make handmade cards and refrigerator art, they're always so proud of their creations! I love to indulge in buying myself something frivolous too, usually anything scrappy!

southernscraps said...

Dinner with my family- either a meal I don't cook, or an expensive restaurant we wouldn't otherwise go to.

toni.1 said...

With family & friends and cake & ice cream.

McMcKenzie said...

Dinner with my family and a slice of good cake! Maybe watch a good movie together!

Getting everyone to go sledding with us! Beautiful projects!!
:)Kathy

bumblesnbees said...

My birthday is boxing day, so shopping!!

Angel said...

LOVE this little box... adorable!
Spending my bday with my family is the best. Hubby is in the military and he has been overseas and missed more birthdays than we would like. We don't take that for granted.

Jingle said...

My favorite way to celebrate is by spending extra time with my husband and eating REALLY YUMMY food!!!``

Tricia said...

Having my whole family around and just hanging out.

janeb74 said...

With friends and family. It's always at my home all planned out from the invitations, decorations, menu to the party favour (usually edible, something that I baked). It's a lot of work but they are worth it!

Márcia Mattos said...

If I am with my DH and son I am happy.....and having lunch or dinner ata nice restaurant.

not cooking and sleeping in, followed by an easy day with the family

Indigo Wings said...

Quietly, with my husband and son--spending the day out somwhere. Last year we went to the art museum to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit-- it was perfect.

Ruth aka alteredgeisha said...

I love that banner...I keep on telling myself to make one that can be used year after year and become an heirloom.......

I just like a quiet night in with the kids but when they are older I'd love to go out for a meal with my DH and have a babysitter.....I live in eternal hope!!

Cindy Vernon said...

I like a fun dinner out with family with a yummy ice cream cake at home afterwards.

Elise said...

With my whole family, some friends, and a cake--I have to have a cake with candles & singing. Presents, fancy dinner, etc are not necesaary as long as I have my sweeties & my cake.

Shawninaz said...

I love to gamble in Vegas and stay up late. That would be my fav thing to do.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

I love to go out to dinner and celebrate with friends and family.

Thanks for the great tutorials! I especially love that gift box.

castlebc said...

Taking a day off from housework and cooking and being treated to dinner and homemade love from the kids. I love spending time the family having fun and laughing. Cake and gifts are a bonus.
