Hello Doodlebugs! It's Mendi here today with a set of girly birthday layouts using my newest favorite: Fairy Tales! It epitomizes everything I adore about Doodlebug and fulfills all my childhood fantasies in one happy collection. I have several birthdays for my daughter that I never got around to putting into albums so I decided to spend my weekend scrapbooking not one, but three fun pages.
Up first is a layout based on a sketch with a polka-dot border down the left-hand side. I love the pops of color against the white and how they work to frame some of the adorable images and sprinkle shapes from the collection. I cut apart the word birthday from the odds & ends set and popped it up using foam tape for some extra dimension. I love the bit of shadow the extra height creates!
For my next layout I wanted to use all the adorable banners and balloons from the odds & ends set to create a happy balloon bouquet.
After my balloons were adhered to my page, I used some solid white doodle twine from a twine assortment pack with a big needle and a paper piercer to stitch my twine around each of the balloons (taping the extra to the back of my page). It was so much easier than trying to tie them around each one and I love how much the little detail adds! When I was done I tied the loose hanging strings with a spare piece of twine to secure them together and glued the knot to my page with some liquid adhesive, hiding it all with a ribbon bow.
For my last page I wanted to create a border of sorts between my photos using the adorable stickers and die-cuts from the collection. My only regret is I ran out of space to include even more cuteness!
I paired the celebrate die-cut from the collection with the word "friends" which I cut out on my Silhouette using THIS cutting file. I adore mixing fonts and a sans serif font always looks awesome with scripty fonts like the ones in this collection.
If you're like me and have several birthdays that never got put into albums, why not print those photos and get them scrapped with this adorable collection? I swear you'll be transported right back to the 80's with all these yummy rainbows and unicorns! ;)
