How can it be 2 years since the AAA Birthday challenge blog was first launched? I’m so grateful to have been given the chance to be on this design team with the wonderful Jane at our helm. We wouldn’t still be here two years on without the support of all of you…the amazing creative community who enter the challenges.
This months challenge is simply HAPPY BIRTHDAY and we would love to give you all the opportunity to win some crafty goodness. We have 9 amazing companies who have graciously sponsored this special month. See further down for all the details of how to win.
We also welcome Kuni as our guest designer for this special month.
For my DT card I’ve used My Favourite Things stamps and dies.
This month we’re shaking up our card shapes so think outside the square…or rectangle! Welcome to our guest designer this month, Trina P. Pop on over to the AAA Birthday Blog and see Trina’s fabulous shaped card along with the rest of our amazing design team. We hope you’ll be inspired to join us.
Clean and simple…entering this into the current Inspired by challenge – Bunny Roll. I was INSPIRED by the rabbits in bed. These “Whittle Rabbit” dies look like they’re asleep and I had the perfect sentiment to go along with them. Also showcasing a simple background using washi tape.
How did February fly past so quickly! It time for our March challenge – get out your patterned paper and play.
Congratulations to our guest designer for March – Colien. Pop over to the AAA Birthday blog to see what Colien has designed for her guest spot and be inspired by the rest of the Design Team cards.
I’ve had a 12 x 12 sheet of double sided patterned paper that I’ve had in my stash for a while that is so pretty…of course that makes it hard to actually use. I had coloured the image earlier in the year and it was the perfect complement to the paper.
Well it’s February already and time for shouting out Happy Birthday in a large format.

One of my favourite stamp companies is Avery Elle and I recently purchased this yummy “Cake for All Seasons” stamp and die set.
A quick-ish card for the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. When I can’t decide on a colour scheme I just go with a rainbow. Pulled out some older products from My Favorite Things and the silhouette stamps lend themselves perfectly to the rainbow scheme. This was also a great way to include more than one sentiment.
A quick blog post today as I’m trying to get this entered before the deadline for the current Inspired by Challenge – Cele-bear-ate. I wanted to use up some of my patterned paper so took this opportunity to do just that. My inspiration was simply the bear and using the stripes and lines from the inspiration bear.
Welcome to a new year…2021…and a new round of monthly challenges.

First up we would like you to stencil a background. There are so many different ways to use a stencil; dry emboss, texture paste, ink, paints, glitters, embossing ink and powders – the list goes on and on… I’ve used a very cool turnabout stencil by Concord and 9th and I love how it turned out.
