Hi, Jamie here with you today with a two-piece ensemble. The Celebrate Birthday set includes a slimline birthday card and a coordinating pillow gift box featuring Simple Stories’ Happily Ever After Collection. Let me share my details with you!
Edit to Add: Simple Stories Feature Hop & Giveaway is Closed. Thank You for Participating!!
Congratulations to the winners, Amanda W., Connie J. + Debra R.! 🎉
Before we start, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is featuring our friends at Simple Stories from today (9/15/2021) until the end of September. To commemorate, we are giving away three adhesives and paper pack packages. Please read through Jamie’s lovely project and at the end, there will be giveaway details! Good Luck!
Celebrate Birthday Slimline Card
For the card front, the large floral print was so pretty, I used it as a beautiful background. I secured it with the E-Z Dots Refill Dispenser to a slightly larger yellow panel. Then popped it up using the 3D Foam Circles White Mix on a dusty blue card base. Again, with the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, I lifted the birthday shadow die cut shape, the garland, and the balloons for more dimension. To keep the happy strip and the white birthday word to its shadow shape, the Dual Tip Glue Pen did the trick.
Celebrate Birthday Pillow Box
How cute to make a coordinating pillow gift box with paper from the same collection? I used a pillow die which makes it easy to do and completes your Celebrate Birthday gift ensemble!
The E-Z Dots Refillable Dispenser was used to adhere the side of the box. Next, a couple of dots from the Dual Tip Glue Pen were used to make sure that the edge is secure.
Finally, the box was tied with a blue ribbon with stickers from the Happily Ever After Kit was placed on the box with one circle from the 3D Foam Circle White Mix placed under the bottom of the lantern since it doesn’t lay flat.
Make someone’s birthday special with this Celebrate Birthday Card and Gift Card Ensemble!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love my EZ Runner Grand, it is by far my favourite tape runner. My favourite collection from Simple Stories is Sunkissed. I just love the vibrant colours and summer vibes!

Simple Stories has so many beautiful collections!! ONE of my faves is ‘Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden’ because it has it all: polka dots, gingham, flowers, music, roosters & more. And I almost always pop some element up on my cards so I love the 3D foam squares a lot!
By Andre M. September 16, 2021 - 1:34 pm
The card and pillow box are so elegant! Oh, Happy Day is my fave collection and I’m a sucker for your 3D foam!
By Amanda Wilcox September 16, 2021 - 1:40 pm
These projects are beautiful!
My fave product are the foam squares. They are the perfect thickness and size. They are the only ones that don’t give me grief to take the release paper off too! Seriously, I swear by them!
Simple Stories is one of my favorite paper brands! I love all of their collections. I’m very much a fall girl so I love all of those but Boo Crew is really speaking to me this season!

I’ve never used any of Scrapbook Adhesives that I remember but the Creative Photo Corners look really cool as I’m getting ready to create some mini photo albums to sell and they’d be perfect in them! Simple Stories Simple Vintage Farmhouse collection looks amazing cause even though I didn’t grow up on a farm I grew up in a rural area and it captures it well 🙂

By Laurie Black September 16, 2021 - 9:21 pm
My favorite adhesive product is adhesive dots because they are strong and no need to wait for glue to dry. My favorite Simple Stories collection is Simple Vintage Great Escape. I love the neutral colors and beautiful images, and that it is appropriate for masculine and feminine cards. I love it for scrapbooking our outdoor adventures.

I Truly love Simple Stories collections and use them a lot in my scrapbooking. The Family Fun Collection has to be one of my ultimate favorites for my kids, grandkids and us get together and love to play games and this collection is always perfect for those times. Keep up the wonderful work Simple Stories!
Hands down my go to adhesive is the EZ Runner Grand! It has been my go to adhesive since it was released. I use to use another popular brand of runner adhesive and it was always such a pain to change and didnt have the lasting stick like the EZ Runner. Plus the EX Runner is so much Easier to chnge! Love it!
