Ok crafters!  Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit here for an EXCITING celebration post!!!  While we are still sort of celebrating the installation of Paper Vineyard's awesome card shack, the challenge for our design team this week was to create a birthday project that WAS NOT a card!!!  They were all given super fun products from Kaiser Craft's Party Animals Birthday line and here's the AWESOME OUTCOME!!!  WARNING:  The team was very inspired, so sit back and relax cuz there's a few pics in this post!  hahahahahaha!

First up is Julie's birthday canvas.  No surface can be discounted when we are talking about scrappin and Julie shows us that canvas is the perfect, well.... canvas! LOL!  For this masterpiece she used Kaiser Craft Party Animals, Lil Davis chipboard alpha, canvas banner ribbon, fabric, Making Memories metal mesh (yes I pulled out the old stuff!), Fancy Pants chipboard star, chipboard numbers, felt, Prima flower, Martha Stewart edge punch, black Stazon, Stampendous Pearlustre in sapphire and Tim Holtz distress embossing ink & distress ink in brushed corduroy.  Whew Julie... that is quite the list for an amazing project!!!

 Next up is Marijo's ADORABLE mini album!!!  Marijo also put a lot of products and a lot of love into this WONDERFUL creation:  Chipboard book pages, Bazzill paper, Kaiser Craft Party Animals Birthday line, Stamps also from Birthday line, Assorted Cricut cartridges, gems, letters, lace, ribbon, buttons and twine, Circle punch, White Signo Pen, Brown Sharpie pen, Colorbox Cats Eye ink - Chestnut Road and Burnt Sienna.  AMAZING Marijo!!!  Check out a couple more pages for this wonderful book!!!

 When we stretch beyond cards, I'm always amazed at how creative we all are!!!
Speaking of creative.....
Here is Pam's UNBELIEVABLE project!!! 

Pam's 2 page scrapbook layout REALLY showcases the awesomeness of Kaiser Craft's birthday line.  She really worked the line's designs.  Here is her recipe for success:  Bazzill Cardstock, Kaiser Craft Party Animals Birthday paper and stamps, Kaiser Craft Dated Alpha and Frames/Tags, Memento Ink (New Sprout and Summer Sky), ColorBox pigment ink (Black), ColorBox Fluid Chalk (Chestnut Roan), StazOn (Jet Black); Copic Marker Multi Liner (0.3 and 0.5), My Mind's Eye buttons, We R Memory Keepers eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, scalloped circle punch,  EK Tools Binding Edge (notebook) punch, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch, Hampton Arts a la mode clear embossing powder and yellow waxed twine from Paper Vineyard's ribbon cabinet.

WOW, WOW, WOW!  That is perfection.  Here are the pages individually.

I just can't get over how perfect this Kaiser Craft line is!!!
Check out Gayl's artwork!

Not to be outdone by the rest of the team, Gayl whipped up a little masterpiece of her own!  I really cannot get over how unbelievably talented our design team is.  Gayl, this is STUNNING!!!  Gayl used 12X12 press board exclusive to Paper Vineyard, Imaginations paper for background, Tim Holtz Tattered Flower/pleated center Sizzix, Glazed Bazzill dot, Tim Holtz photo strip trim, glitter dotz and ribbon.  Just gorgeous Gayl!!!

And finally, MY project.  Well, my project isn't really a work of art or a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it IS the project that we featured at last week's Cricut Swarm at Paper Vineyard.  This super fun cupcake box was the make n' take for the event and we at Paper Vineyard wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for the mega-successful day.  It was a lot of fun (always is) and I look forward to doing it again in October.... OOOOOO, Halloween Cricut Swarm?!?!?  My FAVORITE holiday is going to make for a VERY interesting event, I'm sure!!!

Welp, that does it for today's Non Birthday Cards post.  Hope you are as inspired as our design team was.  We'll see you next week for even more design team fun.  Be sure to swing by the store this week and check out our Card Shack (if you haven't already).... there's a whole OTHER world of inspiration there!!!
