A Very Jello Birthday

Fun little acrylic card for a special October birthday girl. I won a bunch of Sheetload Shortcuts acrylic products awhile ago (they've since gone out of business) and I always forget to use them, which is what happens when you have so much stuff you forget what you've got. Don't laugh, I'll bet you know EXACTLY what I mean. Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this cute vintage Jello ad image and built my card around it.
Paper is Bazil CS and MME Alphabet Soup Girl. A little cuttlebug embossing on the background paper, some birthday ribbon, MS edge punching, some turquoise Thickers and Kaisercraft pearls with an SRM sentiment sticker inside and it all went together easily. Sorry about the glare--it's hard to get a good photo of acrylic cards. Thanks for looking!


  1. hehehe.. very cute! You would get a different look from me if somebody brought me out a cake of Jello on my birthday. More of a "WHA?!?" >:(

  2. Hi, Kathlene! So wonderful to meet you! Glad you came by--thanks for the nice comments! SO glad to know another avid genealogist--it does get overwhelming sometimes, doesn't it? But aren't we lucky?! Just take little bites and tell your (their) story...so much fun, and so satisfying!

    Love your sweet card...and I DO know what you mean about having too much stuff--I do!

    I'll be following along with you & will be back soon--hope your day is just wonderful!


  3. so beautiful card, lovely details.
    hugs Pia

  4. Kathlene, thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. I love your Sheetload card. I too won a bunch of the clear Sheetload cards and I have used them and loved them. Some are put somewhere and I need to find them.
    Have a sweet tomorrow

  5. Thanks Kathlene, for your lovely comment at the Pixie Blog, I too adored Lauren's amazing artwork, and she is such a joy to be with too (I just met her up in person, for the first time last week in NYC).
    Thanks for visiting the pixie blog, by the way, I love your work too, I love vintage images and you did an fabulous job with this card and the vintage tag! : )

  7. What a clever card - love the use of arcylic !

  8. ok, *THIS* is why i should look at the photos WHILE iread the post & not vice versa b/c i just spent like 5 minutes trying to figure out **HOW** you got those stars to HOVER over the foldy front part of the card like that??!?!?! (duh, lauren!!!) but in my defense: KATHY CAN...and OFTEN does... things that seem entirely magical to me!!! ♥


Thank you so much for your comments!
