Introducing Leyla Valois




Bio:
Leyla is a self-confessed crafting addict, amateur blogger, and brand new independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with her fiancĂ©, their two dogs, and a pantry overflowing with rubber stamps and crafting supplies (particularly indulging her obsession with Stampin’ Up! and Lawn Fawn). She works full-time and lives a hectic lifestyle, but any spare moment she can find is spent exploring her new found passion of papercrafting. If you’re anything like her, your creative process can get a little… messy, meaning in a matter of hours, her condo can look like it’s been hit with a paper tornado and glitter grenades – a small price to pay for the enjoyment she gets out of it all. Stop by her blog at www.crafterofdisaster.wordpress.com -  she does her best to fill it with ideas, information, and tutorials to help inspire you to embrace your creativity, no matter how chaotic, and if you let her, she can show you that what might start out as a crafting disaster can maybe, just maybe, turn into something pretty darn special.
Project description:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgotten someone’s birthday. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve known them or how many birthdays we’ve celebrated together, I have a tendency to lose track of the days and find myself at the eleventh hour without a birthday card to show for it. Because this is actually a pretty common occurrence for me, I’ve started designing super straightforward greeting cards that can be made in ten minutes or less. Today’s project is a sweet birthday card that took me just under seven minutes to create. I’ve made two cards here, using different coloured cardstock and ink, to illustrate how easy it is to change up the look just by switching out the colours. With the stamp set mentioned below, you could even substitute the greeting for a ‘Thank You’, a ‘Feel Better’, or even a simple ‘Thinking of You’. The clean look and versatility of these cards makes them a nice gesture to an array of recipients.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these cards:
