i {heart} papers is Turning FOUR!

i {heart} papers is thrilled to be celebrating our 4th birthday this month! We know there’s no way we could have made it this far without each and every one of our loyal customers sharing their IHP love with their friends or following us on Facebook, Twitter, our blog or through our newsletter. So, our celebration is really a celebration of YOU and our gift to you is a 25% off coupon for the whole store, valid 10/16-1-/20 (valid on in stock items not, not valid on gift certificates or prior orders). Use code: 4bdayDT.

NOTE: Shop early! Once seasonal items are sold out, they will most likely not be restocked. Also, the store will be closed from Oct 19-25th and there will be no shipping during this time. Orders will resume shipping on 10/26.

We will also have a giveaways on the blog and on Twitter during these days (they’ll be linked from Facebook too but since giveaways aren’t technically allowed on Facebook we have to do it on the blog!) so be sure to check in daily to see how to enter.

But wait! There’s more! Long time customers know that Kate is a huge dog rescue advocate, volunteering for a local dog rescue, transporting dogs in need and doing rescue work on Facebook. October happens to also be Adopt A Shelter Dog month, as well as the birthday of one of Kate’s dogs and the Gotcha/Adoption day of the other. So, in honor of all of that, IHP will be donating 10% of all sales during the birthday sale to
Home For Good Dog Rescue, Eleventh Hour Rescue and Pilots ‘n Paws. And if you make your own donation to any of these organizations, we will send you a gift certificate to IHP for 50% of your donation amount (these will be sent at the end of the month). Just email us a copy of your donation receipt and we’ll email you a gift certificate!

We're combining this month's design team challenge with IHP's birthday celebration.  The DT has created projects inspired by photographs of a floral themed birthday party found here.  

I chose Chicken Girl Design's Birthday Wishes for my images, and used the colors and balloons for my inspiration.
I stamped on X-Press Copic Blending Cardstock with Memento Black ink, and then colored with Copic markers. My designer paper is from the Everyday Eclectic Collection by Echo Park. The sweet Celery Green crocheted lace and Cotton Candy Pink baker's twine finish off the card, along with some aqua gems in my stash. My layers are popped up using the Zva Adhesive Dimensional Squares. The rest of the layers are held together using i {stick} papers redline tape.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the team made to help celebrate!
