Queen & Company: “Make a Wish” Layout with the June Kit

The Queen & Company June Kit is is now available and today I am up on the Queen & Company blog sharing my first project created with it. I have so many birthday layouts to catch up, so this kit was perfect for me!
MAKE A WISH

I began this page by using my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic cutting machine to cut the circular background shape (Assorted Lace Circle by Jamie Koay Design #45588 from the Silhouette Design Store). I used the adorable papers from the Pretty Presents 6×6 paper pad included with the kit to back each of the openings in the shape. For added texture and definition, I pulled out my sewing machine and added stitching in between each section of paper along the diamond pattern of the circle. It looks awesome!

I then used my machine to cut the “Star Swag Banners” by Sarah Hurley (Design #52883 in the Silhouette Design Store) to add a fun party-feel to the top of the page. I love the subtle look of the white on the light blue background paper! They have a very sweet feel about them!
The swag banners were each one long curved piece … I simply used my scissors to cut them apart and adhere the pieces in a way that looked best for my page design.

I used my Cameo again to create the title. The letters were cut in different patterns from the 6×6 paper pad to coordinate with the multi-colored circle background. I love all the color! The title shape I used is was the “Make A Wish” by Echo Park Paper (Design #136637 in the Silhouette Design Store). I added an offset border of white cardstock around the “wish” letters and then enlarged the “Make A” portion of the phrase to fit across the top.

Of course I had to create a trio of birthday presents to accent my photo. Two of them are shakers and the one in the background is flat. I die cut the shapes multiple times from different colors of cardstock and patterned paper so that I could piece them together and create a multi-colored die cut.
To the right of the birthday presents, I used a stamp from the kit with bright blue ink to create another accent piece. (Stamped greetings can definitely be used for more than cards!)

I used the same paper pad from the June Kit to build up several layers behind my photo, offsetting each layer a little bit from the previous one. To visually anchor the circular design to the page, I cut the 6×6 papers into two strips. I adhered them next to one another hiding the seam behind the circle so that it appears to be one long paper strip.
SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: white, green, blue, yellow
Sizzix Big Shot Manual Die Cutting Machine
Silhouette Cameo 3 Electronic Die Cutting Machine
Sewing Machine/White Thread
Computer/Printer for Journaling

I hope you enjoyed this birthday page today! The colorful papers in the June Kit are so much fun to work with, and I love the unique accents I was able to create with the shaker present dies! Too cute!
Thanks for coming by!
