I have to share these super cute papers with you. They are by cloud 9, usually I am not really one for Valentines day so don't look at the papers or accessories too much. This paper is so super because it not only is embossed it has glossy colour in areas and has built in sparkles. I mean really what could be better? The coordinating papers are sweet too, lots of hearts and a cool pink plaid. Also very cool but not used in this project are the Bo Bunny Smitten papers, they are patterns on a cream coloured shimmer paper, very pretty.
This was a super cute and easy (quick card) :). I used a base of River Rock card stock that matches these papers really well. Used some velvet ribbon, it is a beautiful deep red . I love the sentiment for Birthday cards, it kinda takes the sting out of getting older. I mounted the sentiment on the pink plaid paper, added a prima with a crystal brad. I'm going to work on getting more quick and easy cards done.

This journal was made from scratch. I cut the cover from thin cardboard and covered it in cloud 9 papers the inside paper is the plaid. (the D is covered in the plaid as well) I used more of the beautiful velvet ribbon. I covered a chipboard D and sanded the edges with the basic grey file set. (A real lifesaver) Added a Prima with a crystal brad and a couple of little gems to the flower centers.

I then used my Bind it All to put it all together. This was my first time using my BIA since I brought it back from my trip to Salt Lake City. I learned a few lessens but I am going to make lots more with it. It really is a cool little machine. I like it so much better my rubicoil.

Now all I need is the Dreamcuts machine. One more thing for my ever growing wish list.

I love that paper!! Your card and journal are adorable! I really want a BIA and I'm glad you said you liked it better than the Rubicoil because I was contemplating getting that instead.
