FIF Birthday Bash Bunny Blog Hop!

HELLO FRIDAY!!!!!!  Anyone else in need of a Friday?!  I'm so happy you're here (both you and Friday)!

Welcome to Flaunt It Fridays Birthday Bunny Bash Blog Hop!!! :)  I hope you came after visiting Amanda at My Scrappin Obsession.  Didn't she do such a great job?!  She's so talented!!  If you just happened to visit my blog for the day, make sure you start at the beginning at Flaunt It Fridays. :)  You'll want to make sure you visit everyone and leave a comment at all of the blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize - a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed assortment!  YEAH!!!

On to my projects! :)

The first one isn't the prettiest thing, but I love the idea (I'm sure a lot of you can make it look even better). :)  This is my way of keeping track of annual events such as Birthdays and Anniversaries. :)

I kept this one super simple.  I used Create A Critter for the Bunny as well as for the present.  The ribbon and the frame were from my stash, I'm not sure where they came from.  I did use some flocking for the bunny (just to add a little bit to it).

I'm sure most of you are much better at remembering to send cards to family for Birthdays and Anniversaries!  After school started, I saw a bunch of these 3x5 card holders on sale for less than a dollar.  They've been sitting in my 're-porpose' box calling my name. :)  I came up with this idea to help me keep organized.  I printed off all of the annual events on 3x5 cards.  I also made the labels for the separators for each month and one for addresses (because I can never find them when I need them).  Very simple, yet very helpful.  It makes it very nice to be able see what is coming up within the next month and making the card a little early to get it sent on time. :)

For my second project we were supposed to make something using a different cut from Birthday Bash.  Looking through the images online, I found a cute little snail that was holding an envelope. It inspired me to make this card.
 I used Base Camp for the card shape (to look like a stamp).  The snail is from Walk In My Garden, and the grass is from Paper Doll Dress Up. :)  I inked around the grass, the snail and the base paper to give a little bit of dimension.  The stamped message is a My Pink Stamper stamps.

Enough of my jabbering!!!  I do have a small surprise for one person.  All you need to do is leave me a comment telling me how you keep the important annual dates organized; I'd love to hear!!!!  You don't need to be a follower friend, but I love friends! :)

I think you do not even see how talented you are! I love both of your projects I think it is a fabulous idea! I NEED to get more organized BAD!!!!

Jenifer said...

I love that box idea...I just write the important things on my calendar. I make sure that I write them in before I throw away the previous year's calendar. When I was really good, I looked at the next month's calendar on the first of the previous month, then started my gift and card making to have ready to go for the following month...not quite that organized anymore, but hey, it's a goal.


Nette said...

I love your idea, I wish I could say that I was orginized when it came to important dates, but I'm not, I'm lucky if I remember my own birthday (I try to forget that one). Thanks for the chance to win.

Great idea! I use my Blackberry to store annual events - I just enter it and select the option to have it automatically update the event for every year.
