KinderStampO's 34 Birthday Balloons and Counting Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to KinderStampO’s 34 Birthday Candles and Counting Blog Hop!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY KINDERSTAMPO!!  
Today we have over 40 designers sharing at least 40 fun birthday-inspired projects. If you arrived here from KinderStampO’s blog, then you are in the right place. KinderStampO’s blog is also the starting point for the entire hop, so if you get lost, please click here to see the full list! 
First off, I’d like to thank KinderStampO for giving me the opportunity to participate in this blog hop celebrating her 34 wonderful years of life!  I’m very excited to be part of such a great group of crafters, including herself.   KinderStampO has been an inspiration through the projects she creates and the products she shares, and I feel honored to help celebrate her birthday :). 
For today’s hop, I have not one…not two…but THREE projects to share with you!  It is a bit of a long post – but I PROMISE it will be worth it in the end (HINT: THERE IS BLOG CANDY!!!!!).  Because of the length of the post, I’ve only included the supplies I used for each project on this post.  If you would like more information – such as exactly what sizes I made my cuts and which paper was which – please e-mail me at scrappinpinkpiglet(at)gmail(dot)com and I will send you a recipe for each and/or all the projects.  I am more than happy to share! :)
My husband’s birthday was also this week (he turned 34 as well!) so I benefited from his celebration when creating my projects.  The first project I will be sharing is the card that my cats “created” for my husband:

What can I say?  They love him!  See, they even helped out in my craft room:


Okay…so it was more that they provided moral support…but support nonetheless!
Supplies Used:
- Gypsy
- Cricut Cartridges: "Celebrations", “Meow Lite”, “ZooBalloo”
- Standard Colored Cardstock (Value Pack)
- Cri-Kits Metallic Pens
- Martha Stewart Crafts’ Scoring Board
For my second project, I created a card for my husband.  The inspiration for this project came from Pink by Design’s “Take the Cake” stamp set.  If you have checked out any of my projects from this past week, you’ll see that this particular stamp set has provided me a fair amount of inspiration in a variety of different projects – not all birthday-related!  This time, though, it was perfect for my husband’s birthday card:
Supplies Used:
- Gypsy

- Cricut Cartridges: "Celebrations", “Create a Critter”
- Imaginisce: “Dino-Roar” Collection (Rumble & Roar, Stomping Ground)
- Cricut Paper Pad: “Celebrations” (6 x 12)
- Standard Colored Cardstock (Value Pack)
- Pink by Design Stamps: "Take the Cake” set
- Paper Clips
- Hot Glue Gun
- iRock and the iRock Hot Rocks Compact
- Cri-Kits Metallic Pens
- Martha Stewart Crafts’ Scoring Board

A note about this card…if you read my post for my “Party ‘til the Cows Come Home” card from earlier this week, you would know that I don’t own any Action Wobbles – I missed the advance samples when they first came out a few months ago – and haven’t had an opportunity to order any yet (plus they wouldn’t have made it in time anyways!).  To create the 3-D effect on my dinosaur, my husband wound a paper clip into a spring and attached it to my dinosaur and my card using a hot glue gun.  It produces the perfect 3-D effect, in my opinion, and is a creative (and inexpensive) way to do this! 
For my final project, I decided to make a birthday gift for my husband.  My husband likes to leave his things everywhere – not very organized at home, lol – so many times I’m asked the question “Where is __________?”. My response is typically, “Well -- where did you leave it?”  This past weekend it was, “Where are my gift cards?” (he found them, eventually, with his video games in a cabinet).  I decided to take this container

and made him this:

Can you figure out the code? (HINT: Check out my explanation above ;))
Supplies Used:
- Gypsy
- Cricut Cartridges: "Celebrations", “Create a Critter”, “Going Places”, “ZooBalloo”
- Paper House Productions: U.S. Travel Paper Pad (12 x 12)
- k-i Memories Designer Paper Pad: Funky Paper Pad II (12 x 12)
- DCWV “The Natural Stack” (12 x 12)
- Standard Colored Cardstock (Value Pack)
- Cri-Kits Metallic Pens

IN THE END...
My husband loved his cards and his gifts – and my mother-in-law was pretty impressed as well ;)

As promised…I do have BLOG CANDY!!!

This prize pack includes:
- a DCWV Calendar Kit
- Stampendous! Perfectly Clear Stamps – Birthday
and last but not least…my personal favorite…
- a PIGGY NYLON TURNER!             >:@
(you had to know there would be SOMETHING pig-related!)

To be entered for my blog candy, please:
1 – Become a follower!  I love sharing what I am doing with others and getting ideas from YOU!
2 – Leave me a message with any feedback – positive or negative!  I am a teacher by trade, so I am used to “glows” and “grows” so I’d love to hear any ideas you have on how I can improve my craft :) 

The drawing for the blog candy is open until 11:59pm on January 23rd.  I will announce my winner on the 24th.  If you include your e-mail address with your post, I will be sure to contact my winner directly :)
Thank you for visiting my blog!  Don’t forget to wish KinderStampO a very happy birthday! 
Your next stop on the hop is Alexandra at You Had Me at Craft. 
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
