Happy Friday, Friends! Today I have another scrapbook page to share created with the June “Pretty Presents” kit by Queen and Company.
I have so many birthday pages to catch up on, so you can bet that the June Kit is getting a lot of use from me. The problem, for me, is that not all of my birthday event photos are the most beautiful technically. They are usually dark or slightly blurry due to the fact that I am snapping them early in the morning, late at night, or in a hurry. I’m so thankful for happy, bright, and cute birthday products that help to convey the fun of the day. You can see what I mean by checking out the page below.
Our kids always choose a place to go for their birthday dinner. Without fail, my son always chooses a family fun center … because of the two-for-one factor: dinner and arcade games! The problem is that it is always dark inside of these types of establishments.
I chose to focus on the bright, primary colors of the kit with a red/blue/green/yellow color scheme. I used the 6×6 paper pad to create a color blocked page design and then added the shaker presents to two of the blocks as accents.
I also used one of the stamps to add a phrase banner above the bottom present.
I created shakers from the two larger present shapes, and then chose to place a solid piece of paper on top of the small present shape for a flat die cut embellishment. I love the confetti feel of the shaker presents! They really help to add a celebratory flair to this page!
I used a large circle punch and the 6×6 paper pad to add a trio of circles, around the three areas of embellishment on this page: the title. the journaling, and the accent square. This keeps your eye moving around the page.
I really loved the way these papers brightened up my otherwise dark and dull birthday photos. It helped to punch up the design and memorialize my son’s special day.
