If you have been following along, you know that one of my “resolutions” is to send more cards. I started last year with sending more birthday cards so this movement fits in well!

Read this post from Shannon West, Demonstrator Training Manager at Stampin’ Up! to see how the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement got started. Then make your list, collect your addresses, and get stamping!


In the video in Shannon’s post, she teaches a local (in Utah) news anchor how to make a birthday card using the Build a Birthday (138646 $16) stamp set and Whisper White Notecards (131527 $6). She mentions that all of the supplies they used could be your for $50, but I couldn’t quite figure out where she was spending her money! So I made a list of items you could purchase for a little over $50 to make 20 birthday cards to send and get a FREE sale-a-bration item.

Choose Build a Birthday (138646 $16) stamp set, Whisper White Notecards (131527 $6), Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (138384 $8), Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (131173 $6.50), Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad (126982 $6.50), and Clear Block H (118490 $8.50) for a grand total of $51.50. Then choose 1 FREE sale-a-bration item from here or here!

Also, you can order your own #hashtag stamp here! Shannon is using the stamp on the outer envelope to promote her movement and let people know they can use that #hashtag to show off their birthday card!
