Hey there! I've got a fun lo using the awesome papers from the Birthday Wishes stack by DCWV that I picked up from the Scrapbook USA Expo. Let me tell you, this stack is AWESOME!!! Here's my layout:
That rockin' banner? Yep, already ON the paper. I just cut around some of the banners and popped them out a little. And they were all cuted up with glitter! Love that!!
The polaroid? Yep, already there. I just added my photo with pop dots to give it some fun dimension. I made the little party hat from a scrap of the green chevron paper by cutting a triangle with a bit of a rounded bottom. I just eyed it. Then I folded some twine until it was a thickness I liked, tied a piece around it and cut the loops for the pompom on top.
I love inking, so I will do it anytime with any color! You can see my patterned paper layers here (LOVE this stack!) with inked edges, the flag made with a bit of washi and toothpick, and the hidden journaling tag popping out behind the photo.
I really just went all out embellishing this layout. It's a party one after all. :) Funny thing that happened: I was super excited to do this and use up all those # thickers that I don't normally use, but I did not have very many 3's, which I thought was really odd, until I did the "thr33" & I didn't have any E's so I went looking for, yep 3's. lol
I love making my titles pop by adding faux stitching with markers. So far I've had the best luck with foam thickers which are my favorite kind anyway. The candles are exclamation points turned upside-down, the black dots around the washi tape 3 are glitter thickers. Go ahead and use up all those .'s
I had so much fun making this layout. Go ahead and get this party stack, Birthday Wishes, from DCWV and just go all out. It will be fun!! :)Ange
