Homemade Birthday Cards and Birthday Calendar

I had the amazing privilege to try out some of Heidi Swapp’s new amazing line of memory keeping products. They are sold exclusively at most JoAnn stores and on their website.  Her products have been designed as foundation pieces that you can build on for your home or to give as gifts.   They are super cute and make creating simple and fast.

One of my favorite products is their Color Shine! It’s a non-toxic, water-based spray that leaves an amazing vibrant color and a little bit of shimmer and shine.

She also has color resist paper which means that part of the paper does not absorb the color shine.

You can create the coolest effects with it! Simply spray it on and wipe it off. It leaves behind the color and pattern!

You can mix the colors and vary how much you spray on to get cool effects, like ombre.

I also love their die cuts tags. They come in the cutest patterns and shapes.

The 6×8 pad of patterned paper pad is the perfect size for folding in half to make cards. No trimming needed!

I made myself a birthday desk calendar to go with my birthday cards. Once again the 6×8 paper when cut in half fit perfectly inside the calendar. I made a page for each of our family members birthdays. Hopefully this will help me not fall behind on birthdays (ha ha! one can dream!) I also have a place to keep gift ideas throughout the year.

My boys have started to put post it notes for their birthday wishes on their pages. Davis’ birthday is coming up in a couple weeks and I had 4-5 ideas right at my fingertips.
