Perennial Birthday Kit with Stampin Up

My love of cardmaking started with a very simple card kit that was given to me as a gift. I'd never tried or shown an interest in cardmaking before so when i received it i was a bit like 'well ok it looks pretty but i'll probably never use this' rainy day and two bored young children out came the kit!

I loved how quick and easy it was to create beautiful cards, with no previous experience or art skills needed, so easy my then two young boys could join in too.

Even though now i am more experienced in cardmaking and have enough Stampin Up products i could rival the Stampin Up headquarters, when i saw the gorgeous 'Perennial Birthday Project Kit' it took me right back to where i started and the box looked so pretty i decided to order it for myself.

The box is super handy for storing your made cards in so you are always ready with a card when needed. It even has tab dividers to separate the months and a place where you can write down the birthdays during that month so you don't forget anyone. 

With simple step by step instructions and all the bits and pieces you need aside from an ink pad or two and some adhesive you're ready to go.
The samples use the matching 'Perennial Birthday' stamp set but if you didn't want or don't have that stamp set you can easily swap it to a sentiment or greeting you do have. The same with the ink colours, if you haven't got the ink colour suggested pick one you do. That's the beauty of Stampin Up products, with so many things mixing and matching you can always come up with something that looks amazing using items you already have. 

Below i have made one of the designs in this kit, it took no time at all and the cards look pretty and professional.

Just a word of caution, if you are thinking of purchasing this kit don't leave it too long as it is only available until the end of May. Perhaps it could be a lovely gift to inspire a relative or friend to try cardmaking.
You can purchase it and other items in my online shop HERE
