Itty Bitty Baby Girl Card (PPA236)

IttyBittyBaby

This is my second post today. A New Year comes with New Year’s resolutions. I do have a few: 1) Get more exercise (bought an exercise bike, and now I just need to make sure I get on it EVERYDAY), 2) Open a store on Etsy to sell handmade cards (this one requires some planning, but I will get to it in about two months) and 3) Blog more often (started just now, hopefully this will continue :)).

We are going to visit a friend’s new baby girl tomorrow, so of course I need a card. The layout was inspired by the PPA236 challenge.

PPA236I just joined Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator again, and today I received my starter kit. I couldn’t wait, so I opened all my new toys right away. What is a better time to join than during Sale-a-bration? I got to choose two freebies for purchasing the starter kit. One of the free products I picked was the Best Year Ever designer series paper. I used a small piece as a background behind the three curly petite labels. The images from the Itty Bitty Baby stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue are simply adorable! And don’t you love those little flags underneath that panel? It was cropped from the Balloon Framelits Dies which can be purchased as a bundle with the Celebrate Today stamp set. The “Celebrate!” sentiment was one of the images.

Back in Business!

After taking the longest break ever from blogging, here I am – back in business! You might be wondering where I went in the past couple of months (or not?). I will tell you anyway as a lot of the craziness was due to crafting 🙂

We had our Christmas craft fair back in November. It went well overall for both the sock animals and the cards, but something happened that really made my day – I was approached by someone who owns a pharmacy and is interested in retailing handmade cards at his store. He later put in an order of 100 handmade Christmas cards! Wow, my first bulk order ever!! I surprised myself as I completed the order in 11 days, but let me tell you – there was a lot of staying up till 2am 🙂 There were about 90 unique designs in those 100 cards. What was the most amazing was that 50 cards were portrait and 50 were landscape – this was not planned at all 🙂

I know Christmas was way past, but I just wanted to show off my achievement 😛 Enjoy!
