Birthday Memory Keeping

March 3, 2018

I am still working my way through 2016 and thought I would share with you this double page layout I created to showcase my granddaughter Elyssa’s birthday.  We celebrated the event at our house after school.  The grandchildren love getting together so any event is filled with fun and laughter.  I die cut a length of Melon Mambo card using the border from the Seasonal Layers thinlits Dies.  The border is not quite 12″ long so I attached it to both ends of a piece of Designer Series paper (last year’s Sale-A-Bration DSP) and left a gap in the middle.  The Designer Series Paper is attached to 12″ x 12″ Whisper White card.  I cut the word “wish” and the letters for BIG from Melon Mambo card using the Cupcakes Cutouts Framelits Dies and the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I attached the photo of Elyssa to Whisper White card and then to the left hand side of the Designer Series Paper.   I wrote my journalling onto a grid card and attached to Bermuda Bay card.  I cut the cupcake from Smoky Slate and Bermuda Bay card using the Cupcakes Cutouts Framelits Dies.  I sponged around the edges of each piece with the matching ink before attaching them to the page to cover the break in the Melon Mambo border.  I stamped the candles onto the lower right hand edge of the Whisper White card using the images from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight ink.

The second page uses the same Designer Series paper which has the same Melon Mambo border.  The Designer Series paper is attached to the 12″ x 12″ Whisper White card.  The photos are attached to whisper White card and then the Designer Series paper.  I wrote my journalling once more onto a grid card which is attached to Bermuda Bay card before being attached to the Whisper White card.  The cupcake is cut and sponged as before and attached to cover the gap in the Melon Mambo border.  The words have been stamped using retired Project Life stamp sets.  I don’t sell of any retired stamp sets or dies that I think will be useful for my Memory Keeping.

I’d love hear what you think.

Bye for now,
