Seize the Birthday #5 {Feminine Birthday} Sponsored by The Alley Way Stamps!

Welcome to Seize the Birthday! We are working on creating both masculine and feminine birthday cards this year! This is an exciting month at Seize the Birthday as we will be introducing some new design team members!!! I would like to welcome Deanna Dean to our team! Deanna is an absolute pleasure to work with and I was tickled pink when she agreed to join us! I know you will love her clean and classy designs as much as I do!! Welcome Deanna!

This month we are also thrilled to welcome "The Alley Way" Stamps as our Sponsor!!! Wahoo! Here is a little about the Alley Way Stamps Company!

    We're a small company from Utah that specializes in clear photopolymer stamps that are made right here in the USA! These stamps are fun, whimsical, and sometimes a little quirky. We try to keep them trendy. The sentiments will always put a smile on your face. We began in January 2012 with the release of four stamp sets and are now just over 60 sets and growing. We at The Alley Way bring you one of a kind stamps. All of our stamps are hand created with you in mind; even our sentiments are made to go perfectly with each set. One of our favorite things to do is pick out PUNNY sentiments and the perfect stamp name. From the oldest to the youngest, we hope it brings out the fun in crafting. We can't wait to see The Alley Way Stamps in your next project!
