Seize the Birthday #6 {A Masculine Birthday Sketch}


Welcome to Seize the Birthday! We are working on creating both masculine and feminine birthday cards this year! This week we are using the same sketch as last week, only this time we are looking for a masculine birthday card. The design team has some wonderful inspiration for you! Won't you join us and build your stash of birthday cards?! 




I am happy to welcome another new designer to our team!!! I have been admiring her work for the last month and was thrilled when she agreed to join us!! Welcome to Kay Miller! I have added her bio and photo to our design team page found HERE.


This month we are thrilled to welcome "The Alley Way" Stamps as our Sponsor!!! 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!

Owner/Designer
Alison Spelman


Alison at the Alley Way is also offering a prize each week this month!!! This week's prize is the stamp set "Holiday Sparkles" which will be mailed to our winner this week, from Alison. It is SUCH an adorable set!!!
