Birthday Fun!


Happy Friday, everyone! Ready for another weekend? A 3 day weekend full of fun in this house! We have a busy few days planned but it's all FUN stuff so I can't complain. What are your plans? Any crafting going on? Planning on stopping by Jo-Ann to see if the brand new goodies are stocked on shelves yet? They are rolling out in stores as we speak! Keep checking :)

I have a winner from Monday' Scrapbook Trends Giveaway! So excited for our winner who will be getting a free 1 year subscription to the awesome magazine! Email me your address {erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com} and I will let the ladies at Scrapbook Trends get you all set up.

Congratulations to:

I happily visited Scrapbook Trends Magazine's FB page & left a hardy Thank You.


I have some really great cards made with the new Birthday Wishes Stack today. We all know, we always need birthday card!!! ALWAYS! Well I do at least. I love all of these cards that our design team made. This stack is so fun and bright and I know you will love it when you flip through it at Jo-Ann.


Dayna Sabrina made this gorgeous card! I am loving all of the layers, stitching and embossed effects. The colors just pop off of the card. See more of her amazing card HERE on her blog.


Karla from the team made this fun 50th Birthday card. I love the banner and all of the glitter papers that she used. Birthdays need glitter, right? HERE you will find more views of Karla's card.


Hilde used the February Stack-a-holioc Template for her card! I love that she backed it up on the new 6x6 Cork Stack. I just love the look of mixing the cork and the bright patterned papers. HERE is Hilde's blog post featuring her card. And don't forget to come play with us this month! HERE is more info on the challenge :)


And finally, Rita made this awesome cards using the Birthday Wishes Stack as well. I love how the papers mix and match so well, making it super easy to bust out lots of cards at one. You can see each card up close and personal HERE on her blog post.

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to enter in Thursday's big Valentines Giveaway here on DCWV Diary and also the Blue Moon Beads blog! I will pick winners for both on Monday!

  62. I just saw the email with the chance to win the 6 new stacks, and I'm so excited for this chance!! I have approx. 60 upright paper holders, and could probably fill at least 20 more with paper, and most of it is DCWV!!!! I am a total DCWV ADDICT!!!!!!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this company's paper!!!!!!!!! It is always beautiful, high quality, versatile paper and cardstock. I am even kind of a paper hoarder, and will buy at least 3 of a particular stack at a time, so I can use 2 and still have 1 left in new condition, just because I don't want to ever use all of any 1 stack. (it sounds bad, I know, but I can't help it! They're just too beautiful to run out of!!) I have been sick, and haven't been keeping up on my email, so I almost didn't see this one in time to leave the comment, and would've been so upset if I didn't at least have the chance to win them. I'm so glad something told me to get on the ball and check my email. Thank you, DCWV, for this chance, and for the AWESOME PAPER!!! :)
