Balloons are the quintessential birthday decoration and Elise used our Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables to create a super fun birthday card! She cut the balloons from Spiffy Speckles paper and the balloon strings from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock! For the background she inked up some beautiful clouds using the Cloudy Stencil!

For the birthday sentiment, Elise combined Happy Happy Happy with the Family Add-On set! I love these fonts together!

Megan created an adorable hot air balloon shaker by combining Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables and Stitched Balloon Frames with the basket from Eggstra Amazing Easter! She added some cute little critters from Smooth Sailing!

I love Grace used vellum with the Stitched Balloon Frame to highlight the sweet sentiment on her gorgeous card! The fun critters from Really High Five are bringing lots of smiles! How awesome is that colorful sky?!

Tammy created a fantastic horizontal slim line design with colorful balloons, puffy stenciled clouds and those happy Really High Five cuties!

Melissa decorated a birthday memory page in her planner with balloons die cut from tropical Shimmer cardstock and a Hello Sunshine Remix pattern! The Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments greeting fits in the circle perfectly!

Lynnette‘s delight birthday card features a shaker balloon filled with colorful confetti from the Stitched Balloon Frames set! I love how the Don’t Worry, Be Hoppy cuties are arranged on the top of the balloon!

Audrey‘s beautiful birthday design includes clouds from the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait set and a pretty frame of Really Rainbow paper! Did you know that those “cloud” shapes can also be bushes to fill in meadow scenes?

Chari used a pretty pink and aqua color combo for her adorable confetti-filled shaker balloon! The Dandy Day paper looks so pretty in the background!

Yainea stenciled clouds in colors to coordinate the beautiful shaker balloons! Such a gorgeous birthday card design!

Latisha‘s birthday shaker card features papers from Hello Sunshine Remix! The Oliver’s Stitched 123s number 5 is the perfect way to personalize this festive card to celebrate a child!

The Stitched Balloon Frames work like “magic” with the Magic Iris to conceal a Happy Birthday message! Grace combined cheerful cardstock colors with Hello Sunshine Remix patterns and a greeting from Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments!

I love the beautiful dark blue clouds that Tammy used behind the bright Shimmer cardstock balloons on her fabulous tall card design! The Really High Five critters are so happy to celebrate a birthday!

For her adorable birthday scene, Elena brought in a cute duck from Rub-A-Dub-Dub and a happy mouse from Dandy Day! I love how she colored the Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments greeting inside the shaker balloon!

  1. Unfortunately my daughter’s birthday party was cancelled because of the quarantine, but she still loved her Really High Five card! And we asked people to send her birthday greetings via video which we put together into one longer video which she loved ❤️

    1. March-June is birthday season in my family. As a matter of fact I’ve got two cards in the works for my twin brothers, whose birthday is coming up. Thanks for sharing all this amazing inspiration!

    2. It’s almost my Mom’s birthday, I think I’ll make her a cake and drop it off, we will all sing her Happy Birthday from the sidewalk. When she hears us she’ll come out and find the cake, and card of course!

  2. Birthday smiles are contagious and thus best shared in common. Since that isn’t possible right now I send cards to all my loved ones

  3. Hi,
    my name is Elena and I write from Italy.
    The projects I’ve seen are beautiful.
    I bought the outer nut in stitched stacked balloons, stitched balloon frames, last week and immediately started making tickets for the next birthdays.
    What can I say, thank you so much for your products, they are fantastic and in these quarantine days they helped me and spent time with a new enthusiasm and a smile on their lips.
    Thank you, thank you very much!

  4. Awwww, so many sweet cards – these critters holding onto the balloons are adorable! Birthday smiles are best when shared in a common place, but sadly that’s not an option right now, so sending cards and Skyping/Facetiming is taking over for the foreseeable future!

  5. Oh waw, beautiful cards! Love them all! I send handmade cards to my love ones and they love to receive them 🙂

  6. Cards, cards, cards – excellent way to hopefully bring a birthday-smile to someones face – especially when one can’t be there personally..
    I love that cloud-stencil and the shimmer cardstock!

  7. planning birthday party for me and my husband when corona virus quarantine is finished! love these sets and how they all work together!

  8. So many cute cards, since we are stuck at home we are trying to face time, video or do the free zoom to share our birthday smiles with loved ones and friends

  10. We are celebrating with hand made cards dropped off to their front porches with some candy followed up by a family facetime gathering.

  11. These cards/projects are all so cute and fun!! Making cards and mailing them to friends and family members, hoping to brighten their days a bit!

  12. Love these cards. My husband announced he has postponed his birthday this year. He wants a party with family and friends when this is all over. I think he’s just trying to have two birthdays!

  13. Precious projects in these cards! Birthday cards, donuts and balloons help for birthday smiles! Thanks for spreading joy with all these awesome cards!

  14. Cute balloons! My birthday was in March, just about the time all of this started happening, so we decided to do birthday “do-overs” when the restrictions are lifted.

    1. I’m sharing birthday smiles by sending loved ones cards, and to strangers as well. With these crazy times people can’t celebrate their birthday how they want to and normally would, so I see a lot of online requests for birthday cards to make someone happy. I’m happy to send someone a card and I hope it makes them smile!

  15. I am sending birthday wishes using all my fun Lawn Fawn birthday sets to create cards for family and friends.

  16. You can’t go wrong with balloons, right:-) I love making birthday cards and a cake brings out always a smile.

  17. I’m sharing birthday smiles by sending loved ones cards, and to strangers as well. With these crazy times people can’t celebrate their birthday how they want to and normally would, so I see a lot of online requests for birthday cards to make someone happy. I’m happy to send someone a card and I hope it makes them smile!

  18. It’s tricky to have a birthday right now! All we can do is send the love! I find that writing nice notes inside of my card means a lot to people and birthdays are a time to celebrate that person!

  19. the way the really high five stamps works so generously with the balloon dies is CRAZY!!! Thank you, these cards are so cute! I just love every one – esp. those that involve the critters!!!

  20. I have sent handmade Lawn Fawn cards for YEARS, and people’s response has always been fantastic, given social distancing people have been so THRILLED! These will cheer and uplift people on their bday so much!

  21. I made a bunch of birthday cards last week and sent them out to people. It’s kinda the only thing to do right now. But I am super glad that I can do it.

  22. Oh what super cute and creative projects! Of course I make birthday cards. We have also done Zoom to send celebratory wishes.

  23. Planning a big birthday bash for several friends after the Covid is over!! In the mean time I send out happy mail every week.

  24. There’s no better way to send birthday smiles then with a handmade card. LOVE Grace’s idea of using the vellum. And the versatility with shaker cards and magic iris is amazing ❤

  25. Love love love the balloon dies, definitely a must have. The projects are all incredible! Birthdays in our family are in the fall and summer fortunately so hopefully be able to celebrate together then.

  26. Unfortunately, both of my kids birthdays have occurred during quarantine, so we’re going to postpone parties until summer. I just hope the birthday cards I send to family and relatives brings them a smile.

  27. Super cute cards! Basically I send cards to share a birthday smile. Mine was yesterday and my smile was having my family around me with gifts and dinner.

  28. I like to make birthday cards and send them out or drop them off when circumstances allow it to help celebrate birthday smiles. As adults I think it’s still really important to make a point and celebrate our friends’ and family’s birthdays and help make them feel special!

  29. My birthday was yesterday and although it was very different it was great. I got more messages, phone calls and video calls than ever before.

  30. I make birthday and holiday cards for friends and family. It is so fun to think about what to make.
    Coloring and cutting out a lot of stamps so they are available to make a “quicker card”
    And made lots of backgrounds with the lawn fawn stencils. The ideas today gave me more ideas for backgrounds! Love them all

  31. Unfortunately my granddaughter and grandsons birthday got put on hold for now. AS soon as the Quarantine is lifted we are celebrating everyone’s birthday’s that we missed including a baby shower all in one!! There is 60 of us!!

  32. It’s the spring and summer of zoom chat parties. We got a few birthdays in before the shelter in place orders. So far one since. Thankfully most everyone we know is healthy. A few Corona illnesses. Two mild cases one released from the hospital. Thank the lord! Celebrating with cards to send smiles as always! I love the balloons as shakers and with the magic iris! Super fun!!!!

  33. I share birthday smiles by making over 500 cards annually for a nursing home in Washington, DC! My reward is their comments that are sent via the caretakers! Thank you!

  34. I love to mail birthday cards to send smiles to my long distance family and friends. These cute balloons look like a “must have” for making birthday cards!

    1. Seeing these card made me wanna buy these dies😅 so I’m saving for them 😍
      I love to make cards and now during Corona my brother his birthday is the 24th. I ordered 2 small size of his favorite cake, going to bring him some birthday breakfast with his favorite things ❤️

  35. Can’t ever go wrong with balloons – especially as a shaker!!
    I hope to bring a huge smile to my brother today for his 60th
    birthday … I am giving him 60 homemade chocolate chip
    cookies – his favorite!

  36. Our family has so many birthdays coming up and I plan to make lots of cards and other handmade gifts. I’m a crocheter so I will be making some amigurumi toys. Also hoping to be able to have a party in May for my soon to be one grand daughter. But we will see with the quarantine.

  37. Since I can’t see many of my family.members and friends in person. birthday smiles are best shared with a handmade card.

  38. I love those beautiful balloons!! Right now it’s hard for birthdays. My daughter-in-law had a birthday and all I could do is send a card and call. Usually we have a cookout, cake and presents. I feel bad I couldn’t shop for a present. After this is over, I’m taking her out for a shopping trip to Bath and Body Works!!!

  39. I am pretty good, though somtimes late, sending homemade birthday cards to relatives and friends. I make more birthday cards than any other type of card.

  40. My dad has a birthday this week. We will drop off his present on the porch and do a bit of social distancing talking.

  41. It’s my birthday a week today and I hope my grown kids can check in via a video call. That would make me smile.

  42. I know lots of people with birthdays in April. With my extra time at home this month, I am making sure everybody has a fun card for their birthday. We are also doing lots of facetime and zoom meetings so we can be together digitally!

  43. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these balloons! So cute with the stitching! I made my mom and POP UP POPCORN card for her birthday on the 23rd because she LOVES popcorn!

  44. I just finished a 90th birthday card for someone in assisted living that I didn’t know. Love making all cards!

  45. Funnily enough it’s my birthday today! Sadly we have had to postpone cards/presents/cake for the coronavirus outbreak. Birthday smiles are cancelled!

  46. These balloons are perfect for shakers and I love the inspirations 🙂 I’m making cards for birthdays now, but I will be sending them out once everything is back to normal!

  47. Cards, cards and more cards! I like to send everyone I know a birthday card through the mail, even if I will see them on their birthday. I think getting ‘happy mail’ is a fun treat.

  48. I’m sending birthday smiles to my husband and my son this month with birthday cards I made using Lawn Fawn really high five 🥳

  49. These are great balloon dies. I can’t wait to try them. I make cards for my friends and mail them or drop them off. The “big” birthdays don’t start until late August and continue through fall so maybe we will be OK by then for visiting.

  50. I love making birthday cards and these balloons would be perfect for anyone and any age! So I will continue to send cards and make phone calls to my family and friends

  51. I am sending out birthday cards as always, but trying to send them to even more people than I ordinarily would.

  52. These days it’s been drive by birthdays, Zoom birthdays, and FB posts. Will be working on an actual card, though for a May birthday and then sending it snail mail if the post office is still running!

  53. Card making is so much fun and a great way to send smiles anytime of the year! And Lawn Fawn products are guaranteed smile makers!!

  54. The Stay-at-Home orders have changed our birthday celebrations. We’re doing them through FaceTime for now – and of course Lawn Fawn birthday cards! Thanks for the inspiration using the balloon set.

  55. My daughter’s birthday is in a couple of weeks. I will send her a card and a present but plan to FaceTime also, she lives an hour away. We usually go out to dinner to celebrate but of course that isn’t happening. But we will make the best of it as well as we can

  56. Unfortunately, my sister and I (we’re twins) had our birthday in March. It was a week before our area issued a stay at home order. However, many businesses were already closing (including mine). Ever since I was in college (or maybe sometime in high school), we started having the tradition of the birthday person requesting a certain desert. My dad’s birthday was just a few days ahead of ours, so 3 birthday cakes was too much (especially since none of my family really likes traditional birthday cakes). My sister always requests a Milnot cheesecake. My dad had been in the hospital and not expected to live, so I made it for her and both my mom and my sister bought a coconut cake for me (they didn’t know the other had done it). We ended up putting dad in hospice on my birthday, so needless to say, it wasn’t a nice birthday. Mom came home a couple of times during dad’s hospice and she had cake then. I’m planning on making another Milnot cake now that mom is home and can celebrate with us. I made sure we had all the ingredients on our last grocery run (which was 3 weeks ago).

  57. I have sent cards to two sweet kids who have not gotten to celebrate a traditional birthday party because of quarantine. What a strange time this is! But it has encouraged reaching out and sending handmade cards again which I can get on board with!!!

  58. Sending birthday smiles these days is by mail! Have a lot of birthdays coming up in May and looking forward to all the inspiration this week!

  59. It’s my dads 89th birthday today, so I’m going to drop a special card and cookies off On his doorstep for him to enjoy. I’ll just be able to blow kisses from the outside.

  60. These are such wonderfully fun projects!!!!
    I’m sharing birthday smiles by sending happy mail packages to the girlfriends that I just haven’t had the opportunity to celebrate with because of our busy lives! A handmade card and a thoughtful gift will hopefully put a smile on their face in these uncertain times. After I play catch-up then I’m going to make sure that I send the cards and gifts for coming birthdays until it’s safe to celebrate in person.
    Thank you for all the positivity and joy you spread through your products and projects!!!! Stay safe and healthy!

  61. Super cute cards! My son’s birthday is this month and he’s at home for his 22nd celebration. My mom’s is later this month, and her wishes will be sent virtually.

  62. Granddaughter has a birthday on the 23rd.
    I’m making a quilt block with an appliqued
    labrador on it. She has a labrador service
    dog so it will be appreciated (I hope).
    thanks for sharing some wonderful
    balloon ideas.

  63. making fun and special cards. We have lots of birthdays to celebrate when the shelter in place is lifted, so in the mean time I will make festive cards.

  64. Awesome cards! I’ve sent my friends and family birthday cards since 2014 when I started card making. Some save their cards because every one I make is one-of-a-kind. This makes them happy – and me, too!

  65. We like to CELEBRATE Birthdays with Family and Friends!! Usually a get together with Food, Cake and Homemade Ice Cream!! Things are different right now, but we’re looking forward to getting back to Normal so day and until then, virtual Celebrations with Cards/Gifts Mailed or Dropped off!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS and BLESSED Easter Weekend!!

  66. I’m celebrating birthdays by making magic iris cards! I took a class on how to make them, and i was hooked! I just picked up the High Five set yesterday and can’t wait to play! Thanks for all the inspiring ideas.

  67. My Birthday card list hasn’t gotten bigger with social distancing. The majority of my card making has always been birthday wishes. I am missing delivering some by hand.

  68. All birthday smiles will be sent via mail currently. However my daughter turns 10 in one month and is already concerned about her birthday. So I will definitely be looking for ways to make it extra special.

  69. It was my niece’s birthday recently. I made her a card (of course!) and went over to give her her gift. She opened it at the window whilst I watched and chatted with her from outside.

    1. I absolutely love the double Shaker card! Going to have to figure out how to make that one! What a great variety of very simple to very advanced cards

  70. I’m trying to make sure to celebrate everyone a little more than usually since we are all in lockdown and no one can really party now.

  71. Well, yesterday WAS my birthday, and I was happily sharing birthday smiles by helping in my favorite craft store, Scrapmania in Cedar Rapids, Iowa! She was taking phone orders from wonderful crafters and I was packaging up the orders for shipment! And guess what, there were PLENTY of Lawn Fawn orders – YAY!! 😀

  72. Since I make cards to give away, I am sharing birthday smiles using Lawn Fawn products with people that I don’t even know. However, this is not the important thing to me. It is important to brighten the lives of people and Lawn Fawn makes this easy! Thank you!

  73. These cards are beautiful! I love all the shaker cards, and Melissa’s planner memory page is really fun! I am making sure to send out birthday cards to bring a smile to each of the recipients. 🙂

  74. Such cute cards. I love making cards to give to people to make them smile, for all occasions, including birthday.

  75. Balloons are always such smile makers! These are adorable. My birthday is next week, maybe I will need to get myself some new Lawn Fawn goodies!

  76. Balloons are always great but balloons with critters are adorable. My great-grandkids would love
    a card with the balloons and little critters.

  77. Pretty quiet birthdays lately…. mine was in March, and although we were not under the stay-at-home order yet, under the circumstances it seemed like the prudent thing to do! So we had leftover spaghetti instead of going out. I did have a yearning for cake a couple of days later, and I happened to have a cake mix in the pantry, so I made myself a chocolate cake a few days after my birthday!
    Love all of the fun balloon cards!

  78. Such adorable projects! Love the balloons – useful for so many things. I like to send birthday cards and make a birthday cake, if possible. Thank you for the chance to win!!

  79. Our son just had his birthday, and we got Chinese take out for dinner. I also bought him some new clothes 🙂 He’s 28 now 🙂

  80. So many cute ideas using these dies, I love them! I think a homemade card to someone in the mail is an unexpected delight during these times!

  81. So many bright, colorful balloon ideas! I’ve sent 2 birthday cards already this month, with 3 more birthdays near the end of the month. All of them love getting cards in the mail.

  82. Love making birthday cards. Will photograph them and post on friends and family’s walls for their birthday, especially those whom I do not have their address.

  83. Love the balloon shaker cards. No April birthdays in our family but sending birthday messages on Facebook to friends.

  84. ABSOLUTELY ADORBS!! Just Started my Brother in Laws CincoDeMayo birthday card and Balloons are the theme! This is perfect. Using vellum behind too! It would be Soooo much cuter and sooooo much easier with this set! Yes please! Thanks and Please be well!

  85. Sending my friend out her birthday card today and my birthday is this month too so can’t wait to order stuff!

  86. Fortunately we don’t have any family birthdays in April (except the cats) and the ones in March we celebrated in February because my niece was home from Chicago (hers and my brothers). The next one is in late May…my nephew’s 16th birthday so hopefully we will get to celebrate with him. I have been making a lot of cards for friends and church members. I get a lot of calls telling me how much it has brighten their day.

  87. I will be mailing cards to the two people in my family who have birthdays this month. I’ll phone them on their actual birthdays. I’m sure we will have a huge party once this is all over. Thanks for all of the amazing inspiration. Your post made me smile. Thanks for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

  88. Y’all are so darn creative! 😍 We are celebrating birthdays more quietly with the quarantine but I’ve been using the time to make cards to send later!

  89. I’ve been sending out cards to the Lawn Fawn Addicts birthday group meme era to spread birthday cheer!

  90. We’re between birthdays right now, so I’m making just for fun cards to send snail mail to family. I randomly drop a card in the mail so they won’t know when they’ll get a smile in the mailbox! Today’s inspiration is so fun!

  91. since we’ve been isolating, i’ve been mailing a ton of bday cards!! sending to all the LF Addicts on facebook, family and friends! i love having the time to do it!!

  92. My family has three birthdays within the next month so I am busy making cards. I will be sending flowers to my loved ones this year as we will be unable to be together.

  93. Wow! Those cards are so amazing and adorable. I love the double stitched balloon shaker card. Thank you for all that lovely inspiration!

  94. I like to send birthday cards and for close friends I like to make birthday cakes. There’s nothing like a yummy cake to make someone smile!

  95. I have three male birthdays in May so I am making cards for them as we speak. I love the balloon but my brother-in-law turns 80 this year, can I get 80 balloons on one card??? My husband’s birthday is the week after Easter and I think a bunny would still be in order. Love what I am seeing today, you ladies are so cleaver. On to tomorrow!

  96. May I have a few birthdays to make cards for and working on that now, but my biggest months are Oct and Nov.! That balloon die is fabulous!

  97. I love making and sending cards for birthdays! We also hang crepe paper from our kids doorways on their birthdays! They love it!

  98. It is so much fun to make MANY birthday cards so that I have a choice when a special day of a loved one comes. I use mainly the Lawn Fawn products to do this in advance of any birthdays.

  99. Hoping to bring birthday smiles to a friend who loves farm animals. I’m using Lawn Fawn’s Hay There stamp set which is so darn cute!

  100. I am sending my handmade lawn fawn cards to all my friends and family. They all love it when I make them a card.

  101. April is a huge birthday month in our family so lots of cards are made and this year lots of long distance hugs.

  103. Long-distance bdays in Europe and New England and then an isolation bday in our house tomorrow w/ a big ol’ Easter dinner and birthday cake dessert! Love the Stitched Balloons….open and solid!

  104. I love the pastels on Elise’s card!

    I am probably going to draw illustrations and make some cards for the upcoming birthdays! 😄

  105. We’ve had a couple of family b’days. Thank goodness for modern technology! Facetime, texts & cards help fill the gap.

  106. So adorable!v I like o share birthday greetings on Facebook. I love to post photos of cards I have made for friends there for everyone to enjoy.

  107. I find that having a “stash” of birthday cards on hand is so important. It is fun using the Lawn Fawn products in different ways and the blog helps give me ideas. Thank you!

  108. I continue to make cards and send them to hopefully bring smiles to the birthday recipients! I have fun making cards, so that’s a win win! I love these balloons.

  109. Love these balloon dies, especially for shaker cards! For my daughter’s friend’s birthday tomorrow, their group of friends is driving by the birthday boy’s house to surprise him, then they’ll share cake together (via zoom). 🍰 Not perfect, but I know it’ll be a good bday surprise!

  110. These balloons are so fun!! I love the stitched detail!! Birthdays at our house involve the birthday girl’s (or boy’s) homemade dinner of choice, cake (or dessert) of their choice and of course, a hand made card!

  111. Seeing these card made me wanna buy these dies😅 so I’m saving for them 😍

  114. I always try to make a really fun interactive card for birthdays. Right now that means Magic Iris cards!!!

  115. I have been sending cards and using FaceTime to visit on the special day. I really like the balloon shaker cards.

  116. Zoom and Face Time have been our virtual party interfaces, and will continue to be for the time being as we have a few birthdays in April. During the videoconference we share the card we make for the Birthday celebrant and we eat freshly baked cupcakes 🧁 … one thing is for sure, we won’t be loosing any wait soon 🤷🏻‍♀️ But we are sharing lots of smiles!

  117. This Friday, April 17, will be a big birthday for me. I wish I could have a great party with my family and friends but unfortunately due to the Coronavirus, I will be celebrating solo. Never in a million years did I think that would happen. Not even a birthday hug, but in an effort to be more positive. To be thankful for a birthday, and another year of precious life, I signed up to donate blood o my birthday. My way of showing gratitude , and sharing life and health with others.

  118. My best friend’s birthday is in 2 weeks and I’m planning on sending her a box with goodies since we are not able to see each other because we are on lockdown. I hope this pandemic ends soon.

  119. Such a lovely inspirations! Awesome ideas. I love to send cards, I hink it’s so different to get a “physical” and personal message.

  120. I would love to send birthday cards to my friends, but due to postal services not working currently at my place, I will have to send them later.

  121. Some of my friends, both crafty and non- crafty share their birthdays this month. Although I made them cards, I will be able to send them once the lock down is over as the postal services are closed here in India.

  122. It’s happy each day as someone somewhere has a birthday! Many times, I use the Lawn Fawn products to make HAPPY cards and they apply to nearly every situation! Thank you, Lawn Fawn.

  124. What a grand time to make birthday cards with Lawn Fawn products while we must practice social distancing! Thank you for all that you do, Lawn Fawn staff and designers!

  125. These balloons are so fun! I love the shakers! My birthday was April 8th. I celebrated with my sons and my granddaughters. We grilled out steaks and we did Facetime with my mom and dad and other family members. We’ve decided we’re going to have a big celebration when this is over to celebrate all the birthdays and anniversaries when this pandemic is over!

  126. I love all of your stamps! All of your videos are so informative. I am new to card making and have been having a blast. My children all loved the Easter cards I made them – thank you so much for helping me through a few of them and taking the time to answer all my questions. I love how your package your my orders too – everything is so sweetly put together.
    May you have a blessed Easter!

  127. These cards with ballon dies are so cute!! I especially love the long cards! Cute! I am making birthday, missing you, thinking of you and sadly some sympathy cards this month!!

  128. A lot of zooming for faraway birthdays right now and I’ve been part of two birthday drive-by parades. 🙂

  129. Love these!!!!
    Since I can’t see anyone right now. I am trying to make their birthday cards extra extra special!!!

  130. Most birthday smiles come from celebrating birthdays with our 5 grandchildren. Four of the five have birthdays coming up in May and June so we are hoping shelter-in-place restrictions will ease up by then so we can celebrate with them in person. I think my favorite of today’s projects are the ones where those cute little critters are hanging from the balloon strings. That would bring a smile to anyone’s face.

  131. We couldn’t have a party for my daughters birthday like we had planned, but she still got dressed up in her party dress and we did presents and cupcakes and ice cream.

  132. We have been doing birthday caravans, we drive by honking to bring them out of the house and circle around and park to sing happy birthday! Then leave carefully packed cookies to share!

  133. I have been sending birthday cards to friends and family. I have missed not giving them to the people I work with. My 50th is in May, and with all of this going on, it will be a quiet one. LOVE these balloons!! On my wishlist!!

  134. I just made cards using LF A Bug Deal and the Magic Iris. My daughter is an Entomologist and she will love these as a birthday gift.

  135. Happy – Happy – Happy cards are so much fun to make that I think that I may be happier than the recipients! I just use the Lawn Fawn products that say “Happy Birthday” for every day use! Thank you!

  136. I give the birthday person a call via phone to wish them a happy birthday, as well as, a handmade card in the mail.

  137. I’m still sharing birthday smiles with cards. I’m hoping I can get ahead so I have cards ready for the summer birthdays coming up! (Today’s projects were great!!)

  138. I have been making and sending out birthday cards during the quarantine. I’m looking ahead and making cards for upcoming birthdays while I have a lot of time on my hands.

  139. The stitched balloon can be used for so many special occasions and I can imagine special cards for my friends and family members. Thank you, Lawn Fawn!

  140. I’ve been sending lots of birthday cards to try to keep people’s spirits up. if they happen to leave nearby, I’ve also been doing a contactless drop of baked goodies.

  141. I just love these cards. So many ideas to use for birthday cards, and you can never have enough birthday cards on hand.

  142. I’m sending more birthday cards than usual… it’s a great way to connect. Love all of the ideas, and can’t wait for the video!

  143. Love this! I feel like having birthday cards on hand is really hard so these new products will really help! I like to message my friends and let them know a favorite memory or how I think they might be spending their birthday. I think that helps spread birthday wishes!

  144. ❤️Sending cards or a phone call or text is how I like to send birthday smiles. ❤️ Awesome job DT! I look so forward in your inspiration!❤️

  145. I love giving gifts and cake to bring out birthday smiles! Both of my girls have Spring birthdays and they look different right now. We are showering them with love and making the most of our time!

  146. My birthday was on Good Friday and I have 4 friends whose birthdays are all this week so I’ve been making cards for them, and having lemon meringue pie for my own celebration!

  147. The next birthday in my group of family and friends isn’t until next month but I have a special card finished for my mom who is in another province. My kiddo will also call and sing on that day.

  148. Oh my goodness, love that balloon with all the critters around the top! Your DT is always so amazing, and Lawn Fawn designs never fail to make me smile, birthday or not. I always send out handmade cards to friends and family and joined a birthday card RAK group this past year so am sending out 5-7 cards every month to people on the list.

  149. Making cards with products from Lawn Fawn has been such a pleasure and I can create happy cards with any set from them. Thank you!

  150. I love sending cards out for birthdays. Unfortunately, I am out of stamps, so it won’t be possible for a while 🙁
    This is such a happy set. Definitely on my wish list!

  151. Baking some buns for my boyfriend his birthday is on Wednesday 🙂 and making him a lawn fawn card of course!

  152. Sending out birthday or any occasion cards to family and friends always brings smiles. The balloons are super cute.

  153. I’ve been making cards with the “flippin awesome” die so I can add gift cards and be ready to send. I love all of the options for making them unique.

    1. We just celebrated my little brother’s 40th birthday on zoom. It was actually pretty good because people from many different states were able to join!

  154. I mostly share birthday smiles with making cards and packaging beautifully and this time I do a scavenger hunt for my brother combining all of our childhood magic play world 🙂

  155. Sending or giving hand made card is the way to celebrate birthdays! ♡♡ Just looking at it makes me smile! These Balloons are perfect for it! 🙂 ♡♡ Loving all the inspiration cards, so cute and amazing! Thanks.

  156. These are all just SO cute. Can’t wait for more inspiration as the week continues… this is exactly what the world needs right now! Happy and cheery cards <3

  157. I usually spend my birthdays celebrating with my family at home with a cake and dinner. Nothing crazy. And then I usually do a little craft shopping ; )

  158. Right now, for birthday smiles all we can do is send gifts from afar and try to have video chats. Can’t wait till this is over and have a nice big party for everyone!

  159. For now birthday smiles are shared via text and email. Cards will be made and then shared when the delayed celebrations happen.

  160. I have had a lot of friends and family members with birthdays during the social distancing period we’re currently in. I’ve continued making cards (taping the envelopes shut instead of licking them, with some pretty washi on the flap as well) and I was able to drop off a favorite loaf cake on a porch for a friend.

  161. Love these dies! I’m sharing birthday smiles by continuing to make handmade birthday cards for my friends who are in social isolation right now. I’m also making ‘just for fun’ coloring-book themed cards using lawn fawn stamps to send to my friends and family who are social distancing, too!

  162. Love all these cards, but especially Grace’s!!! So colourful!

    I am looking forward to celebrating my niece’s birthday this coming weekend. We’re going to do a stop in front of the house kinda drive by parade. She’ll be pretty surprised and we can’t wait to see her face.

  163. I have sent birthday cards to so many people that I can’t even list them at this time! Thank you, Lawn Fawn staff and designers!

  164. I send birthday smiles by sending a handmade card, I made my nice a cute reveal wheel card for her Birthday in March 🙂

  165. My husband’s birthday was last Thursday. Normally we go out to celebrate…this year we stayed in. I made him a cute card and his favorite meal.Birthdays at home can be just as fun as going out.

  166. Fabulous inspiration! Those balloons and critters bring out the smiles. I have been making birthday cards that are whimsical to bring a smile to the recipients face. Tucking in a die (for my crafty friends) makes the smile even bigger. We will continue the celebration down the road when it is safe to be together.

  167. The card that I made for a great/great niece who turned 10 in March was with the Lawn Fawn camper die/stamp set and she loved it. I framed it with the birch trees in the background. I have also shared this design with camping friends! Thank you, Lawn Fawn!

  168. There’s something so joyful about a card with balloons. These die sets are fabulous and pair perfectly with so many other die and stamp sets! I love creating and sending bright, fun birthday cards to loved ones to bring joy to their special day.

  169. We have a lot of birthdays for family members who are far away, so we record videos of our little one singing to them to share.

  170. Luckily we only had one birthday this year that was impacted by this isolation. Most of my family birthdays are fall and winter. So I have made sure to send special cards for those I missed.

  171. The birthday cards that I made recently used several Lawn Fawn dies and stamps. I enjoy varying my cards and using the stamps/dies in cards to make others happy although they do not have a birthday to celebrate!

  172. I am mailing birthday cards since I can’t deliver them in person right now. It’s challenging me to do more one-layer designs.

  173. Wow! I really love these balloons and the little bow that comes with that set. I love that balloons can be used for any and all occasions. Can’t wait to get these!

  174. Oh what adorable projects! I have not used the gift box add-on’s on a card but they sure would be cute.

  185. I love to make super special cards for kids for their birthdays: Interactive with lots of ink blending and coloring. The more rainbows, the better!

  186. I have been sending Lawn Fawn cards and then walking around the neighborhood, dropping a little birthday surprise, knocking on the door and running to the sidewalk so I can sing to them. It’s great to see their smiles even if it is from far away.
