Birthday Lunch

May 8, 2021

Today’s page shows off some photos taken on the day we took Elyssa and Ava out to celebrate their birthdays. They both celebrate in March, Ava turned 11 and Elyssa turned 13. I can’t believe how quickly they are growing up. I found a sketch layout I liked and decided to use the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (now retired). I cut two different patterns of paper in half on the diagonal, cutting a narrow strip and the corner piece from one pattern and the large central pieces from another pattern.

Since I don’t have a large paper trimmer it was a little challenging but in the end I think it worked out well. The Designer Series Paper panels are attached to a Very Vanilla 12″ x 12″ page. I attached my photos to Early Espresso card before attaching them to the page. I cut the title from Early Espresso card using the Playful Alphabet Dies. The journaling was created on the computer and printed onto Very Vanilla card. I stamped “sweet moments” from the long retired Remember This stamp set using Cinnamon Cider ink. I cut Cinnamon Cider card using one of the Stitched Stars Dies and attached it beside the greeting. The journaling is attached to Early Espresso card and then the page. I cut the largest star from the Stitched Stars Dies from Early Espresso card. I cut the second largest star from Very Vanilla card. I stamped the greeting from the A Grand Kid stamp set onto the Very Vanilla star using Early Espresso ink before attaching it to the title page.

Simple but kind of fun, don’t you think?

Bye for now,
