Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Birthdays

July is the 10th birthday of My Favorite Things! We're celebrating all month with memories, prizes, sales, and general hoopla! And there's not much more inspiring than a good ol' birthday fiesta, right?

I searched the web for a variety of images featuring birthdays, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

Birthdays are so much fun! Color, gifts, cake, party hats. What's not to like? 

My Favorite Things has TONS of great products to help you make lots and lots of birthday cards. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to create your next batch of birthday greetings!

We have so many birthday products, it's fun to combine them in unique ways like Melania did. She featured the Happy Birthday Centerpieces and Birthday Speech Bubbles Die-namics with the cute new Beary Special Birthday stamp set.

Keisha's festive card is almost exclusively die cut with the Happy Birthday to You, Big Birthday Balloons, and Stitched Banner Alphabet Die-namics.

Torico has a knack for unexpected combinations with soft color choices. Here she pairs the new Celebrate with Cake stamp set and Die-namics with the Delicate Doilies Die-namics and the Snowfall Background stamp. It looks like confetti is falling everywhere!

It doesn't get much more trendy or gorgeous with the Chevron Fringe Die-namics and a gold sparkle and ombre progression. Top  with twine for even more texture like Kimberly did.

Amy's hilarious birthday greeting is perfect for the crazy party animal in your life. I have to say, this card combining the You're Rawr-some and Time for the Bubbly stamp sets with the New York Skyline Die-namics is nothing short of BRILLIANT.

  1. Wow 10 years old. I remember when you first start selling online. I don't know if it was your first year opening, but I sure know it was my first year buying. I had to take a few years off now and then depending on the budget. But I have always been a fan and I probably always will be! Happy heartfelt birthday! Well done, Susan.
