Fan Mail Friday- Birthday Mail

Hello friends,

We might be a little biased, but this just might be the very best Fan Mail Friday of the year. It is the first Friday of August and the Friday before a very special birthday! The table was full of wonderful, heartfelt birthday wishes; thank you to each of you for making us feel loved! All of these gorgeous cards, letters and projects are so beautiful and we appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness so much!

Come see all of the birthday wishes! There are so many lovely cards that we had to split into 2 videos.

California Griffinite, Marianne made some of the most amazing projects we have ever seen! From the pretty diorama to the gorgeous box of tea made with our Thankfulness Cardstock, everything is beautiful. Thank you so much!

Myrna made this fantastic card with the Square Cardcentric Compendium Dies, and the poem inside really resonated! It read, “We’re all pieces of the same ever-changing puzzle; some connected for mere seconds, some connected for life, some connected through knowledge, some through belief, some connected through wisdom, some through love, and some connected with no explanation at all. Yet, as spiritual beings having a human experience, we’re all here for the sensations this reality or illusion has to offer. The best anyone can hope for is the right to be able to Live, Learn, Love then Leave. After that, reap the benefits of their own chosen existence in the hereafter by virtue of simply believing in what they believe.” Stanley Victor Paskavich

How stunning is Zaida’s easel card? The toile paper, Canton Bleu embellishments and cake really work beautifully together. Thank you so much!

This gorgeous, antique card made with the Fancy French Frame Dies was made in true Leigh Jean fashion. From the postcard to the lovely diecuts, this is a wonderful birthday card.

Janet showed us that the 3D Mailbox Dies are for year round use! She won these dies from our Product Preview giveaway, and decided to make and send a card. In your letter you said “from one August baby to another… Happy Birthday!” We hope that you have a happy birthday too, Janet!
