Jennifer’s Birthday card with a little difference


Well on Wednesday my little baby is 12 years old……still going on 99!!!!! Since she started High School in September she as really taken to baking and cooking.  So I wanted to do something in this theme …….so I had to go out and buy the Tilda Chef from Magnolia……….this is my excuse and I am really sticking to it.

I saw this brilliant idea on another Blog called Creations by Christie where she made a mini book with a sheet of 12 X12 paper……….so the one brain cell went into overdrive and this is what I have made for Jennifer’s Birthday.


  So after buying the Tilda Stamp I had to use it on the front cover. I coloured her in with Promarkers and used my circle nesties. I decided to keep things simple for Jennifer.





I used my Labels 2 nesties and stamps from the Kanban Fairy cakes collection. I used the promarkers again.






I used my stencils that I had at school myself and just cut the 1  and 2 for the middle pages.




I used my blossom nesties and once again the stamps from the Kanban Fairy cakes collection. I do have a little soft spot for these stamps.007


I used the stamp from the Daisy and Dandelion The secret woodland collection of Daisy baking. Just used my promarkers to colour in and my rectangle nesties to layer up.





To make the tags I just used plain white card and then used publisher to get the ingredients on one side and the instructions of recipes on the other side. The recipes are rock buns which she loves to make with Daddy. Basic sponge cake recipe and brownies which took 3 sides to to.


I do hope she likes this and so do you.

Thanks Christie for helping me out this year.

Luv Jane XX
