Game #21 - A Stencil Background

Happy New Year!

And welcome to our first challenge of 2021.


 Something nice and easy to get you all started - a birthday card with a stencilled background.

We're delighted to welcome Melanie as our Guest Designer and I know you're going to adore her card.


Gorgeous sparkly stencilling to showcase that beautiful bloom. Do pop on over to Melanie's blog and leave her a lovely comment. - HERE.

And now I expect you're wondering how the AAA Birthday team have used a stencil. Hold on to your seats you are going to be blown away.

Winners Game #19 For A Child & New DT Introductions

  Hello everyone!

I'm so pleased you stopped by today as I'm excited to introduce to the awesome ladies who will be joining the Design Team in January.

We had an amazing response and loved that so many of you wanted to be part of our DT. In fact we were so delighted that we decided to expand and add four new members to inspire you

Thank you to each and everyone of you that put DT after your name. If you didn't make it this time around we'd love for you to Guest Design with us for a future challenge. Please contact me if you'd like to do this - aaabirthdaychallenge@gmail.com

So here they are:

Bhavya

       

Hello! My name is Bhavya Raghavendra from India.

Since my childhood, I’ve always enjoyed playing with paper, be it origami, paper cutting, quilled art or making cards for my friends, always loved the process of creating. Started stamping when my little one repeatedly asked me to draw hundreds of images for her to colour, finally thought of looking for critter stamps at a local paper craft store in Singapore:) 

Creating pun and interactive cards is what I enjoy the most but haven't restricted myself to that and I often try to create something fun and challenging. 

I’m so happy to be part of the AAA Birthday design team. Looking forward to spreading the FUN of paper crafting!!

Maaike

  

Hi I'm Maaike. I am from the Netherlands via Germany and Italy and I'm a blogger, Youtuber, DT member of Various challenges and brands (past and present). I volunteer at my local community centre and I am crazy about cats, you'll see ;-).

  

Hi there! I'm Nonni, a 40 years old card maker from Finland. I work full time in a symphony orchestra as a clarinetist. Crafting is my way to relax and and think about something completely different than music! I enjoy colouring in stamped images/ digi stamps and get a lot of inspiration from design team "work", I've been an active blogger for about 10 years now and have belonged & still belong to several design teams. My other passions/interests include outdoors, make up (especially eye shadows!!), home interior, red wine, my dog (a Standard Schnauzer), good meals and good friends!

Valerie



Hello! I am Valérie, 40 years old. I live in Switzerland near Zurich with my husband Benjamin and my 2 guinea pigs Ruby & Doogy. I work part-time in a law firm as a facility manager. I love cardmaking and scrapbooking (project life). I am a planner addict too... I design for Scraphouse (a scrapbooking shop in Switzerland) and I am a list manager for Challenges For Days. I am DT member of several challenges blogs.

We're really looking forward to adding their multi talented styles to AAA Birthday.

And now for the winners of our last challenge For A Child.

Thank you to everyone who linked up their cards and filled our gallery with so many wonderful ideas. We loved each and every one and had a really tough time picking favourites.

Here's the results:

Game #20 - Twinkle

Hello and welcome to the December challenge here at AAA Birthday. We say goodbye to Ana and Sarah with this challenge, both will be greatly missed, but hey life happens! We wish them every success for their future and next crafty ventures.

I'm so excited to tell you that JoyClair are sponsoring this last challenge of the year. 2020 has not been the best so we're delighted to go out on a high and give TWO of you the chance of winning a $15 credit to spend on digi stamps in their store. Winners will be chosen randomly so the more you play the more chances you have of winning!


THANK YOU so much JoyClair!
 

Before I get on to the new challenge can I also say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who responded to our DT Call last month.  We're currently taking a look at your blogs and instagram and will be in contact with the successful applicants very soon. 

OK we know it's Christmas, but we're a birthday challenge! So we've chosen a theme that sort of reflects the time of year but have to insist on your cards being birthday creations. After all there are birthdays in December!


We delighted to welcome Claire as our Guest Designer for December. Loving her idea for the Twinkle theme!


Such a beautiful clean card, love it! Perhaps you'll find time to pop over to Claire's blog and leave her a lovely comment - HERE.

Now for the turn of the AAA Birthday DT - they're a pretty sparkly twinkly group of crafters all the year round anyway!
