I have so many birthday photos waiting to be scrapbooked. Last summer my daughter celebrated her birthday by having her close friends over for a backyard luau. The vibrant colors and tropical icons of the Echo Park Paper Summer Fun collection
were a perfect choice for this fun get-together!
I had a blast creating the flower clusters using the Summer Bloom Die Set
and then using the tropical palm leaves of the Tropical Palms Die Set
to accent them. They are beautiful and add such a fun pop to this two-page layout!
I also used the tropical leaves to accent my photos …
The toucan sits on a die cut branch above the title here.
I added the chipboard banner pieces
to a length of black and white baker’s twine for a fun accent to go underneath my main photo on the right page of the layout.

One of our favorite places to go on vacation, like a lot of families, is Disneyland. The first time my daughter met the characters was completely magical. At the time she was shy around most adults, so it amazed us when she wasn’t afraid to meet her favorite characters.
The title was cut on my electronic die cutting machien from the Simple Stripes yellow paper. I added more flair and blue flowers
to the title, as well. A few yellow pinwheels feel like pixie dust!
Across the bottom of the page the photos rest on strips of patterned papers from the Around the Park Mat Stack, combined with some Magical Tape. Red
and black rivets
adorn each end of these decorative paper strips.

Sometimes it is hard to catch the excitement of a birthday celebration on a scrapbook page. Not any more! With the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set
you can practically taste the sprinkles that are decorating the inside of this cake embellishment!
One of my favorite little details to add to titles is to replace the dot in the letter “i” with something decorative. Here I added a tiny blue petite posie
There was an empty spot at the top of my page above the title. I simply filled it in with a strip of orange Simply Stripes Mat Stack paper, decorating the end with two green rivets
My favorite part of this page looks good enough to eat! Check out the slice of cake I created with the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set
I cut the cake shape from blue and brown cardstock. I used scissors to trim out the “inside” of the cake … leaving just the frosting … and then adhered that frosting layer on top of the brown “chocolate” cake layer. I used a couple of Pom Flowers
to the top of the cake for decoration.

Hello! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog for another design team challenge today … this week we are using the word MAGICAL as inspiration for our projects. I took the opportunity to scrapbook one of my daughter’s birthdays, because birthdays always felt magical and special to ME when I was a girl. 🙂
HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY
I fell in love with the colorful Thickers in the Buttons & Bows Classic kit this month and really wanted to make them the star on this page. I sliced off the pink section of the Simple Stories “Live Simply” color-blocked paper and used it as a home for my larger title.
I placed the Maya Road lace trim along the edge of the title block to add a feminine touch. The gold puffy Fancy Pants Millie & June stickers add a fun bit of shimmer!
The lower portion of my page is dedicated to the photos. I placed my trio of shots on different colors of cardstock that coordinate with the colorful title above.
Next, I treated each photo as it’s own little vignette; embellishing each one and achoring the journaling cards to them.
How cute is that poodle sticker by Fancy Pants Designs?! And I adore that suede bow sticker from Pink Paislee! ❤ ❤ ❤
This was a different look for me this time, but I had a lot of fun creating it all the same. I hope it helped to inspire you to scrap the “magical” moments in your life!
Have a great day!
It’s August! And at our house that means it’s time for birthday parties! All of my kids were born during the summer, which means I morph into full party-planning mode during this time of year.
Echo Park’s paper collections are perfect for making your party unique. I couldn’t resist planning an adorable Mermaid party for my daughter using the Let’s Be Mermaids collection
… because, let’s face it … being a mermaid is every little girl’s dream!
I used my Silhoeutte Cameo electronic die cutting machine to create everything you see here! A mermaid sandcastle centerpiece, ocean shaker favor boxes, and a crown and wand for the special birthday mermaid!
I created the castle using the castle cut file from the Bedtime Stories SVG Set by SVGCuts.com
. Decorating the castle was my favorite part! I had so much fun adding all of the little characters around every side of the sandcastle!
I even decorated the sides and back! It’s important for your centerpiece to look lovely from all sides, not just the front, right?! 😀
The birthday girl will feel so special wearing a crown and carrying a wand adorned with starfish cut outs.
Every crown needs a touch of sparkle! The glitter Enamel Dots work perfectly here.
I always like to give our guests something extra special to take home. I created these Ocean Shaker Favor Boxes with a little aquarium scene inside the lid.
The fish were created with the Fish Die Set #2 dies
that coordinate with the Let’s Be Mermaids collection
. I popped them up on foam squares to give the ocean scene a little more depth. A sprinkling of aqua sequins look like underwater bubbles. So fun!
I love to throw parties! And I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box and use your supplies to make your next celebration unique.
Thanks for stopping by today!
