Green LEGO Birthday Note Card

Offspring3 needed a small birthday card for a little boy turning 4. I dug through my paper stash, and found a scrap of green LEGO paper that was large enough for a note card. The LEGO paper is textured – the dots are raised, and the brick edges are debossed.

I really need to see if I can find more of this paper! (off to the Google machine I go!)

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Creative Imaginations LEGO paper, Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Provo Craft (4), Spellbinders (circle), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

She’s a Brick….House Valentine’s Day Card

brick house valentine

I ordered this brick wall embossing folder (Stampin’ Up!) in the fall, and just never used it. Every time I look at it, I here the Commadores, circa 1977, singing, “She’s a brick…house…”

Instead of fighting that, I just went with it. I have a friend who will appreciate the musical reference when I mail it to her for Valentine’s Day.

And then, a few days later, I had the light bulb moment that I had brick scrapbooking paper…LEGO bricks! (Good thing I stamped an extra sentiment last time!)

I really liked the MOJO Monday sketch this week (MOJO338), and decided to play along. My small collection of Star Wars (ka-ching! George Lucas just made more money!) scrapbook paper was calling to me.

Here is the MOJO338 sketch:
