I have been trying not to get too far behind making my scrapbooking pages. I have opted for smaller page sizes, and also using my mini printer for the pictures. I have a regular photo printer but I have found that using my small printer saves me time and I think the prints look really good in smaller layouts.
One of the things that I like to do every year on my birthday is to bake my own cake. Last September, I made a white cake, and a few weeks ago , I made an 8″ x 8″ scrapbook page to record it. I had the good intention of submitting this layout for a publication but right after I finished it, I saw that the due date had past 😥 Anyway, I thought the least I could do was to share it with you 😉
For this layout I used products from the Bloom This Way and the Fun Stampers Journey Inspiration Catalogs. The stamp set that I used for the title is called Celebrations Script, and I also used its matching die set. To complement the title I simply added the “celebrating” word using an old fashion labeler.
The design has a few layers of cardstock that work as a main frame for the pictures and title. I added a row of layered flowers and leaves right below the pictures and I embellished them with Rainbow Drops and Bloom Time sequins.
I also created a cluster of tags, sequins, a heart clip and a button directly above one of the pictures. Once all the elements were in place, I flicked some Sparkle silk over the whole page.
I like mixing and matching products when I am creating. Generally my pictures and patterned papers will give me a good start to choose all the colors and little details that at the end will make the pages shine 😉
Here is the color combo that I used for this page:
