"Let's celebrate! Nancy Damiano here! Creating simple cards with a little pop of something special is a fun, creative outlet for me. I love to add texture and layers of color with patterned paper and stickers. Here, layers of paper from American Craft's Happy Place are stacked to create this fun birthday card. The balloon sticker pops up just over the card for a fun "floating" effect and is kept in place with a gold bow clip.

 My favorite part is the little touch of fringe crepe paper at the bottom of the card. It's a simple, but unexpected touch that creates movement and a bit of fun.

Wishing the crew and fans of Scrapbook & Cards Today all the best. Here's to many, many more years of celebrating!" ~ Nancy Damiano

"It seems we've taken a page out of the crazy, mixed up, and delightful Louis Carroll classic that we used as our inspiration this for April. Despite the upheaval, we know you'll love how our April scrapbooking kit, Looking Glass, will inspire your creativity. You'll find the likes of Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, and plenty of exclusive Cocoa Daisy in our main scrapbooking kit. Some grey clouds, bursts of sunshine-y yellows and gold, misty blues and aquas, and a very soft pink play nicely against just the right amount of graphic black. We've got die cuts, sequins, a shipping tag, and two alphabets. String, stickers, and stamps finish finish it up nicely. We can't wait to share this kit with one lucky reader! Happy 10th Birthday Scrapbook & Cards Today. Here's to many more!"
