Celebrate Your Day by Nathalie DeSousa!

Hi there Simple Stories friends!

Nathalie with you today to share a fun and colorful layout all about celebrating those magical birthdays. I always think of birthdays as a cheerful day, and the new MAGICAL BIRTHDAY collection  from Simple Stories is filled with small details that will help you document your special day.    

I love the colors and designs in the papers, but the reason  i pulled this picture of my niece for the layout is all due to the eight candles that come in the 12x12 sticker combo, call it serendipity.   I used a cake cut file from Handipaper and cut it three times from white cardstock.  These were stacked and glued together so that they add dimension to the page.

All the colorful papers made it so easy to back the cut file.  I pulled the It's Your Party, Birthday Girl, 3x4 Elements, as well as the 6x8 paper pad to bring color to the cut file.  To construct the layout, i cut a 12"x5" white cardstock strip and attached it to the center of the Hey Crafty Girl basic paper.  I fussy cut a scalloped strip from the HB2U paper and layered it under the white cardstock along with the sticker border from the 12x12 sticker combo.

Embellishing this layout was so fun, literally fun.  My idea was to recreate the party in the page, so i started by adding a few of the banners at the top right corner of the layout.  That foiled star banner from the ephemera pack is amazing!  Then i added the picture (i backed the picture with some of the collection papers) then added a few more decoration to the top of the picture ( thinking of the party decor).  Then added a few stickers around the picture.  The brad was perfect to hold the stickers together and bring texture to the page.

I placed all the presents embellishments at the bottom of the cake, and then used the beautiful foil foam stickers to create my title.  A few enamel dots and gold foil stickers complete  the page.

I love how this page came together with the beautiful MAGICAL BIRTHDAY collection, it is a must for your Birthday documenting!!!
