"oh snap" card by lauren bergold

one of my personal goals each month is to try to make a cool "guy card" using my pixie kit. for one thing, i love showing that these kits--in addition to being both FAB and extremely generous--are tremendously flexible in terms of the type and style of projects for which they can be used. for another thing, i happen to know quite a few guys, and almost all of them have a birthday every single year!!!  :)

here's what i made with our february kit, YOU MAKE LIFE FUN:

obviously the starting point for this one was that awesome camera from the entire 12x12" sheet of october afternoon's "thrift shop" stickers you get in the kit. my friend juan is one of the best photographers i know, and i think he'll get a kick out of both the sticker and the sentiment. the letters that spell out "OH SNAP" were cut from scraps of pink paislee's "beauty parlor" paper, which has a fun word search grid on its reverse side. there are quite a few full words you could trim, or circle, or highlight; but if the one you need isn't there, just make your own!

i used my manual typewriter to add the same phrase repeatedly on the background paper(the reverse of glitz design's "vintage blue") concentrated around the perimeter of my faux-polaroid, which is composed of plain white index stock from my stash, a scrap of my mind's eye "fun and games" paper, and a dymo label. if you don't happen to have a typewriter or label maker, no worries! you could easily get the same effect using your computer's printer and some fun free fonts!

and now i am anxious to mail this, both because i am excited for juan to see it... and also... because i really *DID* (unfortunately) miss his birthday!!!
