When I am looking for inspiration for my cards, scrapbook pages and other projects I go to a variety of places. I google images of a certain stamp set I want to use, Pinterest, Facebook groups, blogs, Split Coast Stampers, magazines, books, just to name a few. For this layout I saw a card with designer series paper punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch all over the front of it. Now, that would have been a lot to do the whole page, but I thought it would look great as a border.
I really like how it grounds this page. There are so many colors in the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper, which made it fun to work with.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday. I stamped it in Memento Black ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The bottom layer of the sentiment is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut with Layering Oval Framelits.
For the balloons I used other designs from the same paper pack and White Bakers Twine for the string on them.
I have a little trick to line up the border. See the picture below.
I put them down in this order to make sure they were even. Yep, my OCD was kicking in. LOL
- Put it in the center of the paper with the point on the 6" mark.
- Put the edge of the piece even with the edge of the black 12 x 12 paper.
- Center these pieces between #1 and #2.
- For your second row you will put the center point in the center of the space between the pieces in the first row.
The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set will be carried over to the new annual catalog, but the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper will be retiring. If you are wanting to get this paper I would do it as soon as possible, because it is while supplies last.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a terrific Thursday!
