Happy Birthday Layout

Friday, March 29, 2019

I have a new layout to share for the birthday celebrations happening over at the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Blog featuring my Banner cut file and Whimsical collection!
First, a process video so you can see how this layout came together:

I started by die cutting my Banner cut file from smooth white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I used the rainbow striped Paper 16 to back all the bitty pieces - I didn't measure each piece, I just eyeballed the size and it probably took about an hour to back the entire design. Not too bad! I backed the larger spaces of the banner with the B-side of Paper 01.
 I splashed watered down white acrylic paint across the B-side of Paper 08 to jazz up my background, let it dry, and then tucked this sweet photo of Jane under the right side of the banner. I used dimensional adhesive to attach the banner in place for depth and to create shadows.
 Next I came in with a new package of Floral Die Cuts and tucked a bunch of them under the banner. I think that's my 12th set of flowers I've used haha - what can I say, they make the perfect finishing touch and help layouts come together so quickly! I created the title on the banner using the colorful Foam Mini Thickers and placed a heart Chipboard Sticker between the words.
 To embellish I added a Puffy Sticker banner below the title and placed a dragonfly Chipboard Sticker overlapping the edge of the photo. Then I sprinkled the tiny round Enamel Shapes here and there for even more pops of color. I finished by writing my journaling in another section of the banner.
 Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out this new layout! Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine Blog to see all of their birthday celebration festivities!
