Happy Birthday Cards

I always have a hard time creating cards for the teens and men in my life. I really would rather work with flowers and ribbons, but now and again I create a male card to use for a birthday.

Here are 2 cards I have created for my son and my nephew for their Birthday's. 

My Nephew Jacob just turned 18 and got his Licence so I created this card with a cool Beetle car. I used it from the Hero Arts set Going Cars automobiles CL478,  lined paper from Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad Bundle Collection Gathering, and Cuttlebug Embossing Folder A2 Forest Branches 371612

This next card was a great one for my son who just turned 12. He likes to ride his bike so I created a card using a banana seat bike and It's your Special Day. The paper is from Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad Bundle Collection Celebrate and I used Martha Stewart Crafts Baker's Twine Red.


Well We are 1/2 way through the summer...We are looking for 2-3 new Digital Designers...if you are interested in designing of us click here for more information.

ABC Digital Design Team Search

Hi Everyone!
Today I am on the search for designers that like to work with digital images. We are starting a new line of digital images exclusively sold at ABC Toys and Crafts and want to get the word out about them. ANYONE can apply, international designers welcome!


ABC Digital Design Team Search

This will be a 3 month commitment. September 4th – December 2, 2012.

ABC Toys and Crafts is looking for a Paper Craft Designer that likes to create with digital images and work independently to create beautiful projects with the Digital Image we sell in the store. You must have an active Blog and be familiar with how a design team works. If you use any of the tools and accessories that are carried in the store that is a plus. If you have some knowledge in blogging and posting on blogs, you may be the person we are looking for.

What you need to know:

What is expected of you as a design Team member?



All members will have free range to create a project with the Digital images of the month and also are encouraged to use any of the images already in the store. Each project must have been created with a digital image from ABC Toys and Crafts Store. Creating with items that are currently being sold in the store is encouraged. The main focus of your project should be the Digital Image.

Each member is assigned a day to post their project once a week and you also must post on your personal Blog. You must include a recipe with links to the products sold in the store.

You must do at least 1 project a week with an image from the store as your main focus.

You may participate in the Month Design Challenge, all projects are submitted to me and I post all the challenges that week on the same post.

You must help promote the DT & Challenge Blog on your personal blog and get people interested in participating in the Challenges going on. You have to display a Blinkie link to the store, an “I design for” Blinkie with a link to the DT Blog and a Challenge Blinkie to the Challenge blog.

ABC Toys and Crafts is open to suggestions and you are welcome to think out of the box, by doing videos, step by Steps, etc. (But not required)

You must join the ABC Design Group on yahoo groups; this is how we communicate with each other.

We also expect team members to comment on others projects and challenge participants’ blogs to boost excitement about their submissions.

Most of all we want you to have FUN!!!

What are some of the benefits?

You will receive 15% discount on the already 10% off prices. Plus if any item is on sale you will also receive your 15% off of that sale price at the time of the sale.

Monthly you will receive all the new Digital images released at no charge and any of the Digital images already in the store as long as you post with them on you blog post or challenge.


You will form Friendships and have Fun with all the Designers on the team.

Who can apply?
Anyone, I will be opening this up to international designers as well.

How to apply:

If you are interested, send me a resume of past design teams you have been on (if any), a link to the Blog you will be posting on and anything you think might help me decide that you are the one we must hire.

Email to: abctoysandcrafts@comcast.net Attn: Digital DT Search

I will be picking the new designers about mid-August.

Thanks, Julie
