21st Birthday

March 14, 2020

This page showcases a group shot taken at my dad’s cousin’s 21st birthday.  I am the baby in the photo!  I love scrapping these old photos.  When I ask my Mum and Dad to help me out with the people in the photos, I often get told some stories from around the time the photo was taken.  It helps me remember things to tell my grandchildren.  I attached a piece of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper across the top of the Whisper White 12″ x 12″ page.  I stamped a couple of the images from the Artisan Textures stamp set across the page using Rococo Rose ink.  I wrapped the bottom of the Designer Series Paper with a length of the Rococo Rose 1/2″Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  I attached a piece of Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper from the 2019-2021 In-Colour Designer Series Paper Pack to create a kind of photo mat.  I punched one end of a piece of Whisper White card using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and attached it behind the upper left hand corner of the photo mat before attaching it to the page.  I coloured a length of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon using the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend, tied a knot and attached it to the top of the Whisper White tag.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the flowers and leaves using the Rococo Rose, Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Birthday Die.  I trimmed one of the die cuts to just one flower. I cut Pretty Peacock card using the three leaf die from the Birthday Dies four times in all.  I also cut Gold Foil card using the berry die from the Birthday Dies.  I attached one Pretty Peacock set of leaves and one Gold Foil die cut to the single flower and attached it to the top left hand corner of the page.  I attached three Pretty Peacock leaves and two Gold Foil die cuts to the three flower image and attached it to the right of the photo.  I cut “birthday” from Pretty Peacock card using the retired Happy Birthday Die.  The numbers and letters for “21st” were cut from Pretty Peacock  using some old Sizzix dies in my stash.

I printed my journalling onto Whisper White card using my computer.  I cut the card into strips, attached them to Pretty Peacock card and attached them across the bottom of the page.

The inspiration for this page came from a scrap layout used on Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up!, a Facebook page of which I am a member.  If you love scrapbooking, you don’t have to be a demonstrator to join this page however, they do use only Stampin’ Up! products.  The pages shared are so inspiring.

Bye for now,
