It’s Go-to Gal Kim Kesti‘s birthday today!
Kim has been a part of the Paper Crafts family nearly as long as I have, and I’ll tell you what–not only is she a stellar paper crafter, but my-oh-my does that girl have an eye for trends!
She’s a loving mama.
A funky quilter.
A fantastic scrapbooker.
And a great friend.
Happy birthday, Kimmers!
So, I thought it only fitting that I throw a little online party in celebration of her big day–and bonus for you, this party is filled with all kinds of inspiration.
If you know anything about Kim, you know that she loves bold color, especially when it’s paired with the clean & graphic style. Here’s some cards I found in the blogosphere, specifically with Kim–and her birthday–in mind.
Even though fellow Go-to Gal Teri Anderson didn’t make this card specifically for Kim, I know she feels this way about her–as do I:
Since Kim has such an eye for the trendy, this card featuring hexagons by Valerie Mangan is right up Kim’s alley:
I just know Kim would love the bright colors and the extraordinary use of white space in this card by Cristina Kowalczyk:
This card by Chan Vuong is all about the bold and colorful use of typography, something I know is near and dear to Kim’s heart:

Primary colors (some of Kim’s favies) abound in this fun card by Julie Ebersole:
I just know that Kim would love the funky earthy tones that Lorena Canto has incorporated in this white-space joy of a card:
Kimberly Crawford‘s got the hip and styling globe and paper airplane goin’ on in this fun and graphic card:
…and this card by Karen Baker has got trendy banners, funky stitching, textured white space, and eclectic type treatments to give it some kapow:
…and last but certainly not least, this little number by fellow clean-and-graphic lover Courtney Kelley is sure to put a smile on all of our faces:
Join me in wishing Kim the happiest of birthdays, one that is filled with her kind of style!
Happy birthday to one stylin’ chica,
P.S. It’s time to announce the winner of Renae’s Falling for Fall Decor post!
