♥ OA Cakewalk hop ♥

good morning everyone and welcome to the


the OA Cakewalk line is filled with fun birthday party-themed papers and i love how fun and versatile the "B" sides are too. 
The OA Cakewalk line has twelve double-sided pp, 8 x 8 pp pad, printed chip shapes, 12 x 12 shape stickers, word stickers, miscellany, label stickers, mini market stickers, 12 x 12 alpha stickers, sticky keys, journal cards, flower sacks, little flyers, tin pins, buttons, decorative brads, tid bits, here and now album, doo dads, sprinklers, washi tape, wrap pack and stamps. 

 (designer brads, here and now album, doo dads and washi tape are all new to the OA lines this release)


 if you have stumbled upon the DT hop through my blog, you can start the  hop on the OA Blog






make sure to leave comments on each of the blogs as the dt will be giving away prizes on their blogs.  and ONE GRAND PRIZE winner will be receiving an ENTIRE Cakewalk KIT..........looooove♥


 




as part of the hop, i will be giving away a set of OA Cakewalk Tin Pins pictured below.  to be eligible to win this set of Tin Pins, leave a comment on  this post and i will draw a random winner on May 9th 2012



 
the next step on the hop is the incredibly talented  






for my project today, i chose to create a set of cards and a guest book (for the kids to write birthday messages at my son's birthday party) i created a sketch and used the sketch to create each of the cards and the front cover of the guest book


here is the sketch
(click pics to enlarge)



i wanted to create a sketch emphasizing the fun "B" sides of the OA Cakewalk line, so i began my sketch with the background pp.




i love these little birthday critters so much, they make me so happy.  i cut them from the pp and adhered them using 3-D tape.
 


i created the "banner element" using my circle punch.  i punched half circles, then adhered them to heavy white card stock and trimmed around the outside of the banner.
 




 i wanted to change up the "banner element" this time for a card that could be used for any-occasion



i have wanted to create a "birthday guest book" for my son's birthday party.  i want a place for his friends to write him birthday messages at the party, since several of his closest friends are military families and will be moving soon.  i decided to use the sketch to create the cover of his guest book.


using the sketch made creating the cover page so easy and fun with these cute little critters.  i cut the title with my Cameo













thank you for visiting me today.  if you create with the sketch, we'd love to see your creations in

hugs and so much love♥
