Happy Birthday Card using Project Life

I have done a lot of scrapbooking in the past, both traditional and digital. When the Project Life system was introduced by Beck Higgins I was so impressed by the simplicity of the products and how it worked for both the beginning as well as the seasoned scrapbooker. Now I have another reason to love Read More

Stamp It Group Father’s Day Blog Hop and Giveaway
