Scrapping those birthday pics!

Hi, It's Tina with a few layouts to show you.  Sometimes it can be hard to scrap all those birthday photos.  If you're anything like me, you take a hundred photos!  So what did I do with these ones from my daughters 9th birthday?  I ended up doing a heap of multi-photo pages, so she has all her friends in the photos, and can remember all the fun.

The paper was quite busy so I kept the layouts simple so the focus stayed on the photos.  I used a hidden journalling pocket to include extra information.

I used paint to create a base for my journalling and title on two of the pages.

I hope this has given you some ideas for scrapping those events with lots of photos.

I made a card using Kaisercraft's English Rose papers....

And discovered I could make decorative strips with my Martha Stewart Deco Fan punch by flipping my paper over .  You could also make individual "flowers" by cutting them apart.

 I used it on this layout...

 I love this "Once upon a springtime"collection by Graphic 45.

 I used Stickles and Kaisercraft bling in the flower centres.

Till next time...


  1. I love the bunny paper! What a wonderfully talented paper artist! Going to have to find that bunny paper somewhere!

  2. Tina - these are all gorgeous! My favourite is the top one - the double page LO with the multiple photos!
    I LOVE how you have done the FUN and RACE lettering? How did you do that?
    Lowri :-)

  3. The letters are old - they are self adhesive, acetate, and I've just outlined them with a journalling pen.
