I am so excited to announce that I am the guest designer on the Pink Paislee blog today during birthday week! I had such a fun time making these creations using the new Birthday Bash collection, and I hope they inspire you to document and craft your next party!
To create all of these projects, I worked with a few simple supplies:
Let's take a look at what I created!
This 12" x 12" layout came together quickly by using a grid design. I made sure to run my elements both vertically and horizontally to create a lot of interest. Don't forget to document your own birthdays, and your hopes and fears for the upcoming year, as I did here!
I so love bunting, hanging at a party or on a layout, and my photo was framed twice- first by the bunting at the top and bottom of my page, then by the die-cut elements and watercolor surrounding the photo of my daughter getting ready to blow out her candle.
I started making one card, but had so much fun with it that I made three! These cards have an extra element of surprise for your recipient, given that each has an acetate window that carries part of the sentiment through to the inside of the card.
I just had to die-cut a balloon background to document this photo of my daughter, taken on her birthday with a bunch of balloons. To make the balloons stand out, I backed them with patterned paper, all from the Birthday Bash collection, then outlined the edges with watercolors, and stitched the balloon strings. This is my favorite project from my guest post!
If you've been following me here for a while, you know that I'm a big fan of throwing a party, and I especially love making things for kiddos that they can call their own. These fun party hats were cut with this digital die-cut file, then embellished with two rows of crepe paper, sewn on at the bottom and cut with Martha Stewart fringe scissors. I also fringe cut more crepe, rolled it up and stuck it in the top of the hat. To customize each hat, a simple die-cut ephemera piece, topped with an initial and a sequin finishes them off quickly!
Thanks so much for checking out my projects! Be sure to take a look at the Birthday Bash collection, currently on sale at Scrapbook.com!
