18th Birthday Celebration Card made by Sam’s Crafty Things, using Stampin’ Up! Products

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend, we have sunshine here, first time in a while! Currently sat with the sun streaming in through the window and warming my back nicely!

It’s my nieces 18th birthday on Thursday, I can’t believe where the time has gone! She was 8 when I met my husband! I really had to think about this card as didn’t want it to be too childish, girly, or tacky!

She’s heavily into photography so I decided to incorporate this into the card using the ‘on film’ framelit dies.




I know I’m panicking about my big birthday next year so decided to add in the ‘Stay Calm’ sentiment from the recent photopolymer promotion Stampin’ Up! ran.  I bet she’s more excited about 18 than scared! I know I was, I could legally drink! (in the UK!)

Do you like the colour it’s stamped in? That’s one of the new In Colours! Hello Honey!




I hope she likes it! What would you make for an 18 year old teenager?

Don’t forget to check out the retiring products in my shop, and if you want to sign up to be a demonstrator you can for a limited time for £50!
