So on with the Birthday project. I decided to do a 12X12 scrapbook layout for you all today. I had a lot of fun making this one and hope you find the inspiration you need here and at the other 15 blogs. There is lots to be had. :)
All of the designer paper is Stampin UP.
The frame on the right is from the Heritage Cricut Cartridge on page 61 using the Charm feature and cut at 4 1/2 inches. I used some brads and pearls to it to give it an elegant look.
Here I used the Stampin Up Scallop Border Punch. I punch 3 strips of paper and layered it on top of each other. I also added some buttons on scallop punched border strips.
For these super cute presents, I once again used the Sweet Treats Cartridge and cut out the presents (one each) on page 46 @ 3inches, page 47 @ 2 3/4 inches, and page 48 @ 2 1/2 inches. I added 3 little circular bling for some sparkle.
Here you can see that I put the presents on some pop dots for some dimension.
Here I decided to take a picture of everything that I used so you could get a good idea of what you would need for the whole project.
Also, you can't have a birthday without a birthday card. Here is one I made using the owl image on page 51 and cut at 9 inches, yes...9 inches from the Just Because Cards Cartridge. I used the Swirls Cuttlebug folder for the dark blue layer. I printed off the sentiment on the computer. Added some google eyes scattered around and a bling for the owl eye. The paper is from Stampin Up and I also used a Fiskars border punch.
