Birthday Celebration

January 25, 2020

Today’s page shows off a few photos from a celebration lunch we had for Sarah for her 40th birthday.  I decided to use the Golden Honey Specialty Paper which is FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a qualifying order.  This paper has a gold embossed pattern on one side and the other is basically black and white in various patterns.  I cut a sheet of this paper in half and attached it to the top of each page 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  I cut a 2″ strip of the gold/black stripe pattern and attached it below the 6″ piece.  The last strip of Designer Series Paper is also 2″ wide – I used the same paper as the 6″ strip but swapped over the pages, so each page has three different designs.  The photos for both pages are attached to Basic Black card before being attached to the pages.  On the first page I cut Basic Black card using the retired Happy Birthday Dies and used this as my title.  I stamped the greeting from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I also cut Basic Black card using the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The greeting is attached to the Basic Black rectangle and then the page.  For the second page I cut “celebrate” and “you” from Basic Black card using the retired Celebrate You Dies.  After I attached the words to the second page I used a jounaling pen to add the date.

These are simple pages but I know they will always bring back happy memories of a happy day.

You might have noticed that I often use retired product on my Memory Keeping Pages.  Well.  That’s because I don’t give up any stamp set or die which I know has a potential use in Memory Keeping.  These pages are for me and not really to promote my business but rather to promote Memory Keeping as such.  It is so easy to forget what your photos relate to and now that we are all using digital photos we have so many photos to choose from, its easy to be overwhelmed.  For me the most important thing is to try and create memories of the events that happen in our daily life and for this you don’t have to use very photo you have, just ones that you know will bring the event to life.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

Bye for now,
