Friday Tip of the Day ~ Episode 394


Good morning my creative friends & welcome to another "Friday Tip of the Day"!  Today is a VERY SPECIAL day, it is my Baby Aaron's birthday! He turned the big "13" today...it is definitely bittersweet because I can't believe how fast my boys are growing up:'( 
Since we are all HUGE "S.F. Giants" fans, I just had to make a card w/the Giant's colors...orange & black! I really like how it came out! You can see in my video EXACTLY how I put this together! 

Basically, my tip for this card was that you can make a simple background on your card just by punching out some simple squares w/a 1 1/4 square punch! You can see the very first cards I made using this technique (a long time ago) HERE & HERE!
I just LOVE these colors because they are my FAVORITE colors this time of year! It almost makes me want to go out & get stuff to make a homemad pumpkin pie! lol..... (seriously) ;)

Supplies I used for my card today!
~ Gift Card Sentiments
~ Grand Slam
~ 1 1/4 Stampin up punch
~ Paper were scraps from my stash
~Vellum -Papertrey Ink!
~Baseball & bat are stickers from Joanns from the "Jolee" collection!

Here is my video for you today!

  3. Such a sweet card for your baby Aaron! :) A memory that sticks out is when I got my ears pierced in the 2nd grade for my birthday. It made me feel like a BIG GIRL! Have a great weekend!

  4. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AARON! Here come the fun teenage years....look out, Emma! LOL!
    One of my favorite birthday memories, huh? Well, when I was turning 14, my friends decided to throw me a surprise party. All the whispering and odd behavior leading up to it led me to think they were all talking about me behind my back (you know how young teenagers are! LOL). By the time the day arrived for the party, I was so angry and upset with most of them. I became quite impossible to deal with. I don't know how they put up with me for those few days, but as soon the word "SURPRISE" was shouted out, all was forgiven :) Happy ending!
    Oh, by the way, Emma...VERY COOL CARD! Love, love, love how you used the vellum!

  14. What a GREAT birthday card!!!! Happy Happy 13th Birthday Aaron!!! I hope his day is AWESOME!!!!
    My favorite birthday memory is not one from my birthday but one from my youngest son's....I planned a surprise birthday party for him when he turned 7 with 7 of his BFF's...first of all image how hard it is to keep 7 year olds from spilling the beans...plus how do you tell your birthday boy there will be no party :(
    We pulled it off with a HUGE surprise...my son was over the moon excited and his friends had such a blast! It was one of the best parties EVER! He still to this day talks about that party!!
    TFS your beautiful card and for the chance to win! Have a GREAT day and again Happy Birthday Aaron!!!

  16. Its not my favorite birthday memory but it is my most memorable one. My 16th. I was at a Rodeo with friends, our lands connected with the Rodeo Arena so we got in free and it was still light out you know when the sun is so bright right before it sinks below the ground, we heard sirens. So
    one said its your Grandpa. It was just a 1/4 of a mile up the road, we hurried up there. You see my Grandpa drove a buck board wagon to town and
    back and as he was headed home a little red sports car came around the curve and because of the sun he couldn't even see my Grandpa, it shattered
    the wagon into pieces and the Mule (Blue) was ok but the white horse (Midnight) had a broken hip. (he got ok and live to be 30) He spent the rest of his life over at my Uncle and Aunts place. Anyways Grandpa got his knife out and had chased the you boy who hit him and the boy had hidden behind a pond embankment till the police got there. Grandpa refuse
    to get into the ambulance till our county sherriff(a family friend) got there. He calmed him down and and was able to get him to understand that he needed to be checked out. Later that night Grandpa opened a window
    at the hospital and escaped. Lol you would have to know my grandpa. Well
    anyways thats my most memorable birthday!!! Love your card Miss Emma!!

  17. Adorable card! Well, when I turned 25 I lived in Tennessee where I was going to school. I was 800 miles away from home, but my BFF filled FILLED her car up with balloons and parked in front of my dorm room. She took me to Nashville that weekend and we had a great time. Turning twenty-five was a big deal for me. I felt so old. My goodness...I am a mummy now at 40! HA!!!

  18. My memorable birthday would have to be this past one. Living away from my children makes it difficult to celebrate anything. Well this birthday which was 9/9 I turned 70. I planned to be with my children to celebrate this special birthday and we all met in Atlantic city in August for a 3 day celebration at Caesars Palace Atlantic City Hotel. My two boys and their wives and some old friends we hadn't seen in 30 years. It was a blast from the past and great being with them all.

  19. My favorite memory is a time when I was about 11 and my mom, the center of my world, couldn't be there due to work. It was a time when the show Finders Keepers was out, so she hid all my gifts. Each gift had a clue on it as to where the next gift was! I had so much fun looking and finding each gift. Thanks to my mom's creativity it was a very memorable birthday! Just one of the birthdays I am grateful for, as I am grateful for every year, lol.

  25. Really cute B-day card. My fav memory is my 40th...3 years ago. When I was little, my mom made this unbelievable cake for my little bro's birthday. It had gumdrops and dancing bears all around it cut from chocolate. I never said anything...but I was jealous of that cake(when I was a kid). About 10 years ago, I started teasing my mom...that Rob(my bro) was her fav kid....because he got the special cake. This went on for years. On my 40th Birthday...my Mom made me the cake...she said she never knew that I wanted her to make me the cake when I was little. It was funny and sweet at the same time. Lee-Ann :)

  27. Cute card!!

    All of my childhood b'days were awesome cause I shared them with my Dad! I was born on his b'day in his car outside the hospital. I remember when I was about 5 or 6 I was allowed to go to the toy store and pick out my own gift. I came home with my first Barbie doll. I thought I hit the jackpot!

  28. Happy birthday Aaron! I can't think of any specific birthday memories - I did just celebrate a big one though - 50. It's hard to believe! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Birthday to your baby Aaron! He's a cutie! My daughter just turned 13 last week - think we could set them up? Maybe an arranged marriage in about 10 years or so? ;)

    One of my favorite birthday memories: I have had big parties for my kids since their 1st. With their birthdays being just 2 days apart, and having a boy and a girl, it was getting harder to do. So I told them the parties stopped at 12. But 3 years ago when my son was turning 13, I decided that I couldn't let a major milestone birthday pass without a party, so I had a surprise party for him. It was great and he was so surprised! The hardest part of keeping it a surprise was keeping him off of facebook and myspace (because he was finally old enough to have an account and he wanted on!). The party was after his actual birthday and I was using FB and MS to plan the party!

    This year my daughter turned 13 and we had a big Barbie themed bash. It was a ton of fun!! I do love birthdays!

  30. Wow! Happy birthday Aaron! I hope you have a fabulous day! And Emma, I LOVE the card. It's perfect for your little SF fans! And I think I need to use some vellum now! :)

My favorite birthday is from about 8 years ago when my husband (then boyfriend) and I had been dating for about a year. I was in college and didn't have any extra money and he took me on a major shopping spree for new clothes! It was so much fun!! Thanks for a chance at a giveaway!! Cute stamp set!

  35. Happy Birthday to Aaron! Hope your day is filled with surprises! My most favorite memory was on my 50th birthday. My daughter had sent out letters to all the family members and friends for photos and a story they could write down and mail back to her. She put together a really nice memory album with all the collected pics and stories. I still love looking through it (have to dust it off occasionally though)...LOL! Enjoy the day, Aaron!

  37. Happy Birthday Aaron. 13 is a big milestone and after the summer you had, a really special birthday for you and your family. Enjoy the moment and have a fabulous day.

    I love celebrating birthdays. One of my personal favorites was when I turned 7. My birthday is in March and we had moved in February, I was in 2nd grade in a new school, making new friends, joined a new Brownie Troop and left my old friends in another city. Well surprise surprise...my birthday party included friends from my old school and troop!!! I was so happy and excited to see them and introduce them to some new friends.

  43. Happy Birthday to Aaron! And to mom too - I think birthdays should be about mom to - after all we gave birth on these special days! That doesn't happen every day! My favorite birthday memory was the year I had my first ultrasound with my first baby and got to see him and hear his heartbeat. Reality check birthday - that's all I'm gonna say! I hope it is a wonderful day for your family - you have so much to celebrate after all you went through this summer!

  44. My Favorite B-Day memory was getting Engaged on My Birthday by my DH of almost 8yrs(Oct.9). I had no clue. He serenaded me with little gifts, flowers and cards throughout the day. Even had rose petals sprinkled in my Office with a Large Bouquet. He came to pick me up for Lunch and before we left, he went down on one knee and popped the question. I'll never forget It. The Most Treasured Birthday Memory of My Life. (Tear, tear...Smooches)

  54. The only memory that I can think of was on one of my birthdays when I was in my mid-20's I drove to visit a friend in San Clemente. She was working a lot so I spent a lot of time alone...the bonus was she lived across the street from the beach. I would wake up and get a mocha and watch the surfers until the fog lifted. Then I would change into my suit and lay out and relax until she got home from work. We went out to dinner on my actual birthday and she is just a great person to be around.

  55. Happy Birthday to your Baby Aaron! Now an official teenager!!! I know he will love the card you made for him.
    A favorite birthday memory would be when my family surprised me with a trip to pick out a Tonkinese kitten (my favorite). I had no clue where we were going until we got there. It was a surprise because I thought I would never have another after my first Tonkinese passed away from a happy old age. Still happy with my now 15 year old! Just a thought...this happened before your Baby Aaron was even a wink...time sure does go by fast :D Make the most of and enjoy every day!

  57. Happy Birthday to your teenager. Great colors and card. When you stamped on the vellum did you use a special ink? I would be afraid the ink wouldn't dry and would smear. My favorite BD was when I was 9 and I got a pony. What fond memories just thinking about it.

  58. Happy happy birthday to your dear, Baby Aaron! He is sure to LOVE your card because it's to super cute! I love the vellum and the stitching of the squares! That's such a fab technique! Mmm, and pumpkin pie! Makes me wanna make some too (Also, my favorite!).

    My favorite birthday memory is a little bittersweet.. It was my first birthday after my father passed away, but also my first year being a mother to my son. My mother/father in-law treated me out to a spa day (which I had never done) and my BF and son surprised me with my Cricut! :) While reading my birthday cards, there was one written from my father which totally melted my heart :)

  63. Fantastic card and a very happy birthday to Aaron! (My son is also 13...it's hard to believe how fast the time has gone by!) My favorite b-day memory is not about my birthday at all, but my sisters. When I was in 4th grade, I won a craft contest in my class and won a box of candy as a prize. On the bus ride home, I realized it was my sister's b-day. I hadn't prepared anything, so when I got home I presented her with the box of chocolates as a birthday gift. We both still talk about this ancient memory and the craft that I created way back when.

  65. Cute card Miss Emma! I can't believe that your baby Aaron is 13, where does the time go?! My best memories are when my 6 boys had a 40th birthday party for me along with my sister. They were so proud of themselves that they had kept it a secret. lol It was a fabulous day for me with my family and friends because it was also Mother's Day!! That was 12 years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday.

  70. Happy Birthday, Aaron - bet you LOVE your card! My favorite birthday memory is when I turned 5. I was living with my grandparents that year and my grandmother only knew ladies her age. Several of them came to my party and they brought me the most wonderful gifts. I still have a butterfly dolly blanket that one of them hand-appliqued for me.

  71. Receiving a birthday present was really special when I was growing up. Usually we only received presents at Christmas. When I turned 16, I received a portable hair dryer. I am 61 years old, and I still have the hair dryer--what an antique!!

  72. You've inspired me to buy a square punch! My favorite birthday memory was when I was a little girl, and because my birthday is near Halloween, we did a Halloween costume themed party. I just remember the excitement and happiness I felt at that party. It was so fun!

  73. Amazing card thanks for sharing! and happy birthday to your little man! 13 is an exciting time! My favorite birthday memory is going on a scavenger hunt and at the end finding a Silhouette Cameo (this last year); I didn't think i'd ever get one... i had started to sell things just to try to afford it but had just given up hope. My husband is the best!

Its one of my favorites because it was a day i didnt want to get out of bed or do anything.

I loved playing with my babydolls and being a little mommy. I got a crib, a high chair and a stroller for my babies!! I was tickled pink and will always remember that birthday.

  83. Happy birthday to your baby!! My baby will be nine on Sunday... I totally understand the "they grow up so fast"!!
    My favorite birthday memory was my big 3-0... It had been a long time since I celebrated 'my day', it was so nice to have all my close friends and family come out to celebrate it with me!!! On my 21st bday I was in labour & gave birth to my son the next day, so my birthday seems to go by unnoticed, as the kids are the ones worth celebrating!! Have an awesome weekend!! We will be having one here :)

  94. Happy Birthday Aaron! My favorite birthday memory was when I was a little girl, I told all my neighbors it was my birthday and invited them to my birthday party that my parents didn't even planned for because they had plans to go to a wedding. So when guest starting coming over my parents were shocked and my dad went to go buy a cake, pizza & pinata to celebrate my birthday.

    My favorite birthday memory is the lavender bike I received for my 8th birthday. Was I ever excited. It had a white banana set with flowers on it and fringe on the handlebars. Yes, I guess I am dating myself with that info!

    My favorite birthday was my 5th birthday, my mom and grandparents took me to Disney for the first time. It was truly magical. Now my baby is turning 5 and I'd like to take her.

  98. Happy birthday baby Aaron! I love how you stamped the message on vellum. My favorite childhood birthday memory is the doll cakes my mother made for my sister and I for our birthdays. As an adult, my favorite birthday was the year my daughters made me a cake all by themselves. Messy, messy, messy, - but delicious and beautiful because it came from them!

  99. Happy Birthday to you little one! My favorite birthday memory was my 30th birthday- my husband and I went to Disney for a 5 day trip and we did 30 things I had never done at Disney- since we had been season passholders for awhile it took a bit of doing to find things but we really enjoyed it and a highlight of the trip was a fireworks cruise we took. rlovew1976 at yahoo.com

  101. Such a cute male card. I love when you showcase a male theme, because they are always more challenging. I have such girly supplies and boy/men stuff is not always easy to pull off for me. My favorite birthday memory is still my first trip to Disneyland and I turned 7 years old. Happy Birthday to the birthday boy!!!

  103. One of my favorite birthday memories is my 18th birthday. We lived in a small ranch town with lots of cows. I had friends from the city of Sacramento show up dressed as cows bringing me a "cow patty" birthday cake. I laughed hysterically the whole night! So fun!

My husband put together a surprise trip to San Diego he planned with my grown children and then to top it off my son flew in from Denver to San Diego to surprise me! We had a great time! The other part of my gift was Creative Escape here in Arizona- my husband secretly got all the other family members to donate towards my weekend at Creative Escape

  109. One of my favorite birthdays was my 40th! I was able to go away for the weekend with my two best girlfriends... just the three of us. We had not all been together for a long time and we just had the best time EVER!! We didn't even go to bed until 6:30am the next morning because we stayed up just talking and laughing all night. We still talk about how much fun we had! :)

  111. Happy Birthday to Aaron!!

    My favorite birthday memory is actually of my baby brother. On his 3rd birthday (he will be 30 this year), he got to cut his own cake. He stuck the knife into the middle of the cake so he could have the writing. The pictures from that day are some of my favorites!
