Happy Birthday Lizzie Anne Designs!

Today is a very special day! We are celebrating Lizzie Anne Designs' third birthday! Yipppeeeeee! The fun is just beginning.....we are not just celebrating one day only........oh no....we are CELEBRATING ALL MONTH LONG!!

To kick off the celebration, Lizzie Anne is having a Birthday Sketch contest in which you can enter your card into the sketch challenge forum to win prizes, and there will also be a grand prize winner who will ultimately receive the entire summer release this month!

Next up, LAD has new single stamps and BRAND NEW Digital Papers to unveil to you today. You may view them HERE. I will show you my project that I made with the new Surf and Sand Digi papers shortly.

There is also a Design Team Member Blog Hop starting today and running through til the 15th....showcasing a favorite stamp collection from each designer....be sure to drop by as my blog hop day will be on the 8th!

During mid-month, Lizzie Anne Designs will unveil a brand new product...you will not want to miss this, I promise you....very exciting......

And to top it all off.......the new summer release stamp sneak peeks will be previewed towards the end of the month and will officially go on sale on the 25th! This is a very brief summary of all the exciting things to look forward to this month....for specific details, please visit Lizzie Anne Land or click on the LAD Anniversary Logo on my right hand side navigation bar! So what are you waiting for....go, go, go, and check out all the details for this very special event!

Before I leave you though, here is another fun summer project you can make in which I've used the NEW Surf and Sand Digi Papers:

These are miniature umbrella sticks with coordinating drink coasters:

For the umbrellas, I simply took a Giga scallop punch, punched out the circle....then cut out a small triangular shaped section...folded the two ends together and adhered. Placed a thick toothpick through the tip of the umbrella...and voila! It's ready to decorate any drinking glass! So much fun, easy to make, and will look great at your next get-together!

I also made multiple coasters in a square shape:

Enjoy and start making your birthday cards for the sketch challenge!! ;)


Materials used for project:

Surf and Sand Digital Papers by Lizzie Anne Designs.

Plain circular and square chipboards.

Toothpicks.

Giga Scallop punch.
