Broadway Birthday, Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop


I printed these photos AGES ago but never got around to putting a layout together - until now!  I must have just been waiting for the perfect products to pair these party pictures with. I found that in the Broadway Birthday suite!


The Broadway Birthday stamp set is packed with staple birthday imagery - party hats, candles and balloons!  And it has coordinating dies that help you make embellishments in a flash, like this gold foil 'Wish' wording!


The Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper has bright party designs on one side, and all-occasion designs with gold foil on the other side!  I couldn't resist using this gold, black and grey 'confetti' for my layout base.

This suite is the star of this month's Artisan Design Team blog hop!  Be sure to click the next link below to see all the amazing birthday inspiration on offer.  Next up is the very talented Jessica Winter!

Pieces of the Story, Winter Magic




It's absolutely freezing cold here at the moment!  It brings back memories of the amazing Canadian adventure I had last November.  What better time to work some photos from this trip into my scrapbook!

For this page, I was inspired by the current sketch challenge over at Global Design Project. The clever Kerstin Kreis used the sketch for memory keeping - I love this!  I've never turned a card sketch into a scrapbook project before.  I had to adjust it a little to make it work with the number of pictures I wanted to feature and the 12" x 12" page size, but all-in-all I'm really happy with how it turned out!



I've featured a mix of supplies to bring this page together.  Imagery from the Waterfront stamp set, a  paper pattern from the Share What You Love designer series paper pack, and alphabets for the titles (Lined and Labeller Alphabets, and the Make a Difference stamp set).


Of course, I had too many photos not to add a matching pocket layout.



Friends, wine, a warm fire, a peaceful winter cabin in the snow... oh take me back!!

I hope you've enjoyed this project!
