Happy Birthday Ava

May 2, 2020

I love memory keeping but sometimes I am stumped as to how to get started.  I found this amazing sketch on Pinterest  by Club Scrap which not only gives you the layout but the cutting dimensions to create the panels.  I cut  one of the patterned papers from the now retired Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to create the large panels on each page.  I used Smoky Slate and Basic Gray A4 card to create the additional panels for the pages (Panels B & C on the diagram).  I embossed the Smoky Slate panels using the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  (You need to place the folder on your die cutting machine with the fold to one side.  You simply emboss the first section and then you can line up the pattern and keep embossing across the whole panel. You do need to be careful to make sure that the top plate doesn’t extend beyond the end of the folder onto the un-embossed area!  Hope that makes sense.)  I attached the panels as shown on the layout.  I cut Basic Black card to create the photo mounts which is Panel D on the diagram.  To decorate the page, I stamped the cake image from the now retired Happy Birthday To you stamp set onto Whisper White card three times.  I coloured the images using Lovely Lipstick, Smoky Slate, Light Old Olive and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I used the co-ordinating Birthday Dies (also retired) to cut out the images. I placed the full image onto the left hand page, the three flower image onto the right hand page and just one photo onto the small photo mount.  I used the Well Written Dies to cut “happy” and “Birthday” from Basic Black card and attached the greeting to the left hand page.  I cut the letters for “AVA” from Basic Black card using the retired Large Letters Dies.

I love how these pages turned out.  They are clean and simple but pretty as well, don’t you think?

Bye for now,
