18th Birthday

July 10, 2021

I was going through some photos which I had removed from old albums and have sitting waiting for me to included them on a Memory Keeping page and I found this one from my 18th Birthday. It’s a lovely photo of me with my two sisters. To create the page, I attached a piece of Pattern Party Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I embossed a strip of Basic White card using the dotted folded from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders and attached it to Basic Black card. I attached the panel across the page closer to the bottom edge. I attached my photo to Basic Black card and then to the page on a slight angle (when I look at the photo maybe its a little too angled!). I cut Basic White card using the Layering Circle Dies and stamped the “th” in the birthday greeting from the Timeless Tropical stamp set by inking using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

I re-inked the “birthday” once more using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it below the “th”. I cut the 18 from Basic Black card using the Playful Alphabet Dies and attached it next to the “th”. I attached the greeting panel to a Basic Black scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies. The panel is attached to the right hand side of the page. I stamped the rose image from the Sentimental Rose stamp set four times onto Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink. I cut out two full roses and two I cut away the outside petals. I stamped the leaf image from the Sentimental Rose stamp set three times onto Basic White card using Shaded Spruce ink and cut them out. I attached the smaller floral pieces to the centre of the full flowers using dimensionals before layering the flowers and leaves onto the bottom of the photo. As a final touch I added some large Basic Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Such a simple page but it brings back lots of memories and I love that I keep finding ways to use the stamp set from the Sentimental Rose all inclusive card kit.

Bye for now,

Kris
