Celebrating 3

April 3, 2021

Today’s page shows off another photo I found in the box on my shelf. This one was taken on the occasion of Jae’s third birthday in 2011. It’s a bright happy photo of Jae with her brother, sister, Mum and Dad. I found a sketch that I had saved on Pinterest and used it as inspiration for the layout. I cut a circle from Early Espresso card and used the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture before attaching it to a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I found a few strips of paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and attached them across the centre of the page. I attached the photo to Early Espresso card and then to the left hand side of the page. I created the journaling on my computer and printed it onto Basic White card. I used one of the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Dies to cut out the journaling.

I inked the “love” from one of the greetings from the Positive Thoughts stamp set below the journaling using Flirty Flamingo ink. I added a few Gilded Gems around the greeting before attaching it to the page. I cut the title from Early Espresso card using the Well Written Dies and attached them to the page. I stamped the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Basic White card using Flirty Flamingo and Bermuda Bay ink. I cut out the flowers, layering some of them together. I coloured the flower centres where necessary using the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. I stamped the leaf from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Basic White card using Granny Apple Green ink and used the Leaf Punch (long retired) to punch them out. I layered the flowers and leaves to create two bouquets and attached one above and one below the photo.

Such a bright, happy page to celebrate a very happy day, although I can’t believe that gorgeous little girl is now almost 13!

Bye for now,


PS: Just so you know several of the products that I have used on this layout are on the Last Chance Products List – Well Written Dies (already sold out), Be Mine Stitched Dies & the Floral Essence stamp sets – so don’t forget to place your order early because these products are only available while stocks last.
