Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
Today I'd like to share a scrapbook page made for a weekend birthday hop at Craftin Desert Divas. If you have been wanting to try some digital stamps..
I took out my 12x12 paper (which felt weird because I have been really just making cards). I wanted the 'cow' look to my background. I used distress spray in black. I suppose I could have just sprayed the bottle, but I chose to take the spray out and flick with the end of the sprayer bottle. Just a warning that the it could and probably will go just about everywhere. Set that aside to let dry.
I then took out Pocket pieces hello dies and used the banner to cut out 5 for "Emily". I wanted her name to be front and center since the day was all about her! The letter cut outs are from Sizzix. I temporarily lay out my scrapbook pages until I know for sure it's the final layout. One tip that I saw from a card maker was to take a photo of how you want it to be laid out and that gives you a picture to refer back to! I thought that was clever and genius.
Behind the photo I wanted a different look and not just a rectangle. So I took out my Stitched scallop dies and cut each side of the rectangle for a cute looking edge.
The cow image is a digital image only available this weekend Birthday Cow, so grab that cutie while you can. I colored her with spectrum noir markers and it was way too busy to just place her on to the cow print paper... So I took out the Fancy frame dies to make the black background.
It was Emily's 2nd birthday so I wanted to document that someway. I used the small tag from the pocket pieces hello dies and 2nd from bring on the cake placing that under the strings on the balloon to make it look attached.
I then used Happy Birthday from Bring on the cake stamped at the top in Black Onyx Versafine. I love foam mounting tape so the banners and birthday cow are all raised with dimension.
I hope this has inspired you to get your craft on.
