This week at Celebrate the Occasion we’re celebrating a kid’s birthday. Instead of making a card, I decided to make a themed birthday layout and I’m super thrilled with how it turned out.
The main cartridge that I used for the layout was Create a Critter. It’s just a go to cart. I love it. I used Imagine More and Imagine More Cards to flood-fill the kites, butterfly, and bee. In addition, I used Stampin’ Up RGB codes for the grass, sun, and clouds.
However, I have a bit of bad news, I had to send my Imagine back to Provo Craft and I’m anticipating the arrival of my new one because it’s AWESOME!
For the clouds, I used the stock image from my Imagine and filled it with Bashful Blue from Stampin’ Up. I overlapped and popped some of them up for interest. And, my little butterfly here is filled with patterns from Imagine More. The kite has patterns from Imagine More Cards.
I “engineered” the grass because in all honesty, I cut it too big, but I didn’t want to throw it away. I don’t want to go broke buying Imagine Ink. The colors for the grass are Certainly Celery and Pear Pizzazz.
Once my new Imagine arrives, I think I plan to make coordinating party invites using the theme as well.
Because I used so many different colors and what not, a recipe for this would be ridiculously long. However, if anyone wants to know, don’t hesitate to tell me and I have no problem getting it to you. The one thing I will say is that my inspiration came from the patterned paper that I used for the photo mats. It’s a Doodlebug Designs paper (appropriate titled, Barnyard) that I got from Hobby Lobby during one of their 50% off sales.
Head on over to CTO and look at the projects that my fellow DT members have created. I know I cannot wait to see them. And you’ll have a week to link up a project.
Thanks for coming by; have a blessed day!!
